Great condo for a family!

February 24, 2013

We had a great weekend at this condo. We loved being able to walk to Snow Summit lifts instead of driving, with 3 kids that was great! We were able to make breakfast and lunch in the well-stocked kitchen. The only downside is the furnace is pretty noisy and since it was cold it rain on and off all night which woke me up. We turned it down more the 2nd night and that helped a bit. Overall we will definately stay here again!!

Perfect location!

February 8, 2013

Perfect location to slopes. Everything from check in to checkout was smooth. Would definetly stay here again during the ski season. FYI- Place is not stocked with even sugar for coffee so plan on bringing what you need for cooking (spices, oil, ect).



San Diego, Ca

Great ski in ski out condo!

January 14, 2013

This condo is in the perfect location. It is a 5 minute walk to the chair lifts which makes it perfect if you have a big group and are trying to accommodate everyone. The condo is very nice and spacious. It sleeps 8 people comfortably. The jacuzzi is where its at though! It only holds 6 people but it is perfect after a day of snowboarding!! We stayed in this cabin with 7 people who are all relatively loud and we didn't get any noise complaints which is probably the best part!! We didn't throw a huge party or anything but we definately had our fair share of laughs outside in the jacuzzi! All in all, the condo was great! We will definately be returning to Snow Summit!!

Perfect getaway rental

February 16, 2012

All you need is your toothbrush and clothes. Leave everything else at home! This place is well-stocked with everything you'll need, and Vons is a 5 minute drive away. This place was cozy, but the high ceilings make the entire cabin feel spacious. The jacuzzi was a great plus, though I wouldn't recommend showering while the jacuzzi is running...unless you like cold showers. Very close to Snow Summit as well! I will definitely be returning.

Ski Trip Stay

February 10, 2012

The condo location is perfect for walking to the slopes (literally next to the Snow Summit parking lot) and it was handy to come back during the day for lunch. The condo is spacious, kitchen well stocked with dishes etc. and a dishwasher, the central heat works well and the on-site maintenance staff were quick to respond when there was an issue with the sink. The downsides are that the condo is older and on the well-worn side, the bunk beds and sofa bed were noisy, you have to walk through the master bedroom to use the hot tub and the condo only comes with 2 parking passes so if you have an extra car you need to park offsite to avoid towing.

Wonderful Early Ski Season Stay

November 15, 2011

The Slopeside Chalet was wonderful and met all of our expectations. The property was roomy and could not be in a better location. Very easy walk to the slopes, we had a great time. Check in/out was painless. We cannot wait to get back!

Reasonable place close to slopes & lifts

September 8, 2011

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. Everything went smoothly with reservation and check in. The place is pretty old, shower drains slow, jacuzzi took a while to heat up, but for the price and convenience of being close to the lifts to go mountain biking, it was fine. Kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and the layout was nice to sleep 6-7 people comfortably. They had nice little welcome treats in the bathroom and kitchen. The only negative thing was that our neighbor must have had 15 people staying there, who were very loud till midnight.

Location awesome but bring salt

January 19, 2011

This condo is so close to the slopes that even a child can walk in ski boots to the lift lines. Takes a huge amount of hassle out of family skiing. The condo itself has basic amenities like soap, dish detergent, and a well stocked kitchen full of pot and pans. But no sugar, salt and other small items one might expect to find. BYO!

GREAT place!

December 16, 2010

Ive stayed at a couple different places in this area and this has been by far the best so far. It is very nice, with newer amenities and a wonderful jacuzzi all walking distance to the slopes. Although there was a lack of cleaning supplies which was a bit annoying when we are asked to clean the dishes before we leave. But thats a small issue in comparison to all the benefits! I DO plan to stay there again!

We had a wonderful experience staying here. The location and parking were so convenient, and the condo was clean with everything we needed. After a day of boarding, it was lovely to slip into the very nice jacuzzi!

Close access. Easy parking. Quiet. Very comfortable for 8 people. Hot tub was a great addition and the rental had every amenity that you would want. Very nice. We would definitely stay again. Only improvement would be a recycle bin for the complex. Thank You.
