  • Nice stay for a ski weekend


    We stayed here for a ski weekend with some friends, would stay here again. The place had three nice sized bedrooms and plenty of space to relax.

  • Family ski trip


    We had the best time at the cottage! It was perfect for our family ski trip to Granite Peak- everything we needed was close by- only a 5-10 min drive to ski area- many local restaurants and grocery store nearby. The house was clean and we could see the ski area across the lake - we will be back!

  • Great Place to Stay


    We were in town due to a family member being sick in the hospital so having the lake view at the end of the day was super calming. The beds were super comfy with nice linens. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook. The kids loved the large TV screens.
