Nice apartment, well located. You will receive what is offered. Good for a small family or a couple of friends. It has alot of kitchen utensils (which was great). Nice homey feeling.
"Great condo near the lifts"
Left on 03/12/2016 for a stay in February 2016
I stayed here with my husband and two other couples in February 2016 during ski season. It was very convenient to get to the lifts from the condo. The walk to the main lifts was downhill, which was nice, but uphill on the way home from the slopes. Luckily, many of the ski rental shops also rent day lockers for $1 (you need to pay each time you open/lock them), so we could walk down in regular shoes and carry boots. We rented, so the rental place held the skis and poles overnight for free.
We enjoyed all three bedrooms. The one on the main floor is listed as a queen, but it appeared to be more of a double. Still worked just fine! On the lower level there is the bunk room with three twins and one queen. Right next-door is the master with a king size bed. Off the king room is the only access to the hot tub. That was not a problem for us, but I could see how that might be awkward to have everyone in the house trudging through the bedroom to get to the hot tub.
The kitchen and main living area was on the top level, which was nice, because it afforded the best views. There was a great deck off of the living room where you can sit and have coffee in the morning if the weather is nice. There are also several board games and movies available for use.
The dining table was very large and could easily fit 8 to 10 guests. The kitchen was well-equipped and had many small kitchen appliances such as a blender and crockpot. As is the case with most vacation rental companies, the kitchen is completely cleaned out after each guest. That means no condiments...
"Dreamy Little Getaway Spot - AND MOOSE!"
Left on 07/25/2015 for a stay in July 2015
I almost don't want to tell you how amazing this cabin is for fear that the next time I want to rent it, it won't be available! We ADORED our stay here. I initially rented it for an overnight retreat to celebrate a friend's upcoming wedding but decided that one day just wasn't enough and booked the second night for my family to come up and join us for a day out of the city. This place did NOT disappoint on any front. For the friend retreat, it was the PERFECT place to gather around the kitchen island/table eating, talking and laughing. The atmosphere and lovely rustic/modern decor were only matched in delightfulness by the cabin's owners who were more than willing to help us accommodate extra sleeping spaces & odd requests. They provided everything you could possibly need to have a great stay.
There's a salt lick and watering bucket in the back yard and we saw several deer and even a baby moose that seemed completely unaware of the people staring at it 30 feet away. For the kids, the cabin was outfitted with a few board games (we discovered a new family favorite "in a pickle") and family friendly dvds (although there was no need for those for us...there was plenty to explore outside!). They loved building careful fires in the wood stove in the chilly evenings and were charmed by the loft and balcony.
My only suggestion would be for a map of possible hiking trails in the neighboorhood. This is located in a cabin community so it was a little hard to know where to go for a walk in the woods where you wouldn't inadvertently bump into someone else's vacation. Although, it should be...

The unit was adequate for our needs with all the things we needed to enjoy our stay. Three comments worth consideration. 1) The unit lies right in the middle of the Cabriolet people mover so you need to drive down to the bottom each morning (2 minutes). You can ski down past the village and walk across the street upon return provided there is snow on the path. But then you have to go and retrieve your vehicle. All workable. 2) housekeeping: In the kitchen we found a sticky dining table and the dinnerware may have been washed but not thoroughly clean. 3) The third bedroom is a cozy room with a lofted bed which requires a ladder to get into. The furnace is housed in a closet above the bed and will wake you every time it kicks on. So, turn the thermostat down at bedtime or have a sleepless night.
"Spring Ski trip for Family of Four"
Left on 03/26/2016 for a stay in March 2016
The most important issue in renting a condo is that there is minimal hassle with the owner or property manager. I found the management company "Alpine Ski Properties" both professional and easy to deal with, and upfront about costs (I wasn't billed extra after departure for some made-up nonsense.) Note however for this property there is not a lockbox at the door and that you must go to the property manager's office a couple of blocks away to both check into and out of this condo. Be sure to get a parking pass at the office, there are not passes left in the condo. The mgmt company had to send maintenance to my unit to provide me a parking pass after I had already checked in.
The best feature of this condo itself is the proximity to the base, I walked across the PCMR parking lots to get onto a lift. But this is a cheaply built property where you hear the neighbors above you walking around (or dancing, or electric sanding on lumber!) and there's loud booming whenever anyone walks up the stairs or past the condo in ski boots. Fortunately after 10pm there isn't much noise. The large hot tub and heated pool are very nice features that are well-maintained.
This condo does not have a full size dishwasher and you'll find yourself with two loads of dishes for every dinner you cook for four people. There is no washer/dryer in the unit. There is a good fireplace with firewood provided, and the televisions in both the bedroom and living room work well (don't expect premium channels though.) This is a snug fit for four people but it's much better than a hotel room. As I was making up...
