    Great accommodation for a weekend on the mountain. Warm on arrival and warm throughout our stay. Plenty of space, clean and good option for groups. Great value and great location with parking directly outside the unit.

    While we booked, we paid all charges included kid, but on arrival, she charged us extra charges for 4 years old kid. We have shown the reservation which mentioned one kid is included but she still didn''t agree and charged us.

    Loved staying here! Very clean, warm, comfortable units. The staff were friendly and the unit was spacious. Good hot water with good pressure. The communal lounge was a great idea for our family gathering. Loved the log fire. We will be back!
