My husband and I came to the luxury cabin for a weekend getaway. It was magical. Maybe because it was off season, but it was quiet and restful, with snow hiking just a mile away, nice restaurants only 10 minutes away, and gorgeous views and scenery. Our cabin had an indoor/outdoor fireplace, was beautifully decorated, cozy, upscale furnishings, and big windows to enjoy the scenery. Amanda at the front desk was very helpful and friendly and gave us great recommendations for local activities and restaurants. It was a perfect weekend.

If you love the sound of idling helicopters, this place is great!
If you love listening to semi engine brakes at 2am this place is awesome!
Mens Toilets we're also clogged and full of poop was awesome!
Best of all we had quarter size hail so in an attempt to protect my $80k Tesla I used some towels and blankets to vehicle from damage. Weasealy little owner came into my tent (without knocking) and started cursing at me in front of my 2 , 4 and 9 year old. Which was also cool! I even said I'd be happy to pay for the blankets, which is standard practice at any hotel or inn. Paid 125 for each comforter, then they tried to keep the blankets I just bought? They said I ruined them because they need to be dry cleaned, which is odd because the tags says do not dry clean, wash in cold water... I guess reading the tag is hard.
Funniest thing is them telling us we ruined the towels because they got wet and they left the unit. I guess when you shower you can't bring the towels with you, or use them to dry?
So to sum up, if you need an overnight place to stay because you want to raft or Zipline and you bring ear plugs, and I guess your own towels, this place is fantastic. The management here however.......thats another story.
