Close to Squaw Valley and Supplies
There were five of us on this trip. Wife, two teen daughters, and my sister. We opted to have the teens stay in the master bedroom as it has the second futon bed separate from the king bed around the corner. This was a great option as they had more privacy (ie, we didn't see their clutter) and we didn't need to go up another set of stairs given the amount of hiking that we were doing. My wife and I were in the queen bedroom and sister was in the bunk room. It was great having the separate spaces for everyone. The kitchen and family room remodel is very nice with new flooring and appliances. Plenty of room for the five of us to prepare meals as well as relax. Lots of pots, pans, and small appliances. Miscellaneous: Hot tub: My sister (60) was the only person to use the hot tub and she said it was nice but the cover was heavy for her. Laundry: Having the washer and dryer was a great help as this was the first stop on a long trip so we were able to leave with fresh gear. Summer travel: We were there in late June so it was pretty warm during the day. Upon arrival, there were two baseboard heaters on, so check that first when you arrive. Once turned off, upstairs windows and patio door opened, it cooled off nicely. Owner: Very timely with initial booking email and email 24 hours prior to arrival. Provided clear notes about the property. Responsive to email within minutes. Restaurant: There is a restaurant (Riverview) within walking distance. We only took advantage of it once and wish we had taken more meals there! Service was excellent. Menu had a wide-range of choices (Elk, Salmon, great salads, and of course chicken fingers). Grill: Tank was full, cleaning and cooking tools were provided. Cooked our brats and hot dogs well, not sure I would try anything delicate on it. I am a bit of a germ-a-phobe so a stainless grate would be a nice improvement. Beds: Everyone slept well. Beds seemed to be fine. We also skied (yes, in June) as well as did a lot of hiking so the fresh air and exercise made sleeping easy. Neighbors: Only saw one family during our three day stay. They were pleasant. Pool: It was being filled during our stay so cannot comment. If this is a big part of your plans, ensure that you connect with the owner in advance. Our family enjoyed this location very much. As we had many days of vacation to go, we left relaxed and re-charged.Jessica A.

Perfect Ski Chalet
On the access road to Alpine Meadows, your own hot tub on the deck overlooking the mountains, a well-equipped kitchen that even has beer in the fridge, a cozy pellet stove, plenty of comfortable beds plus several portable beds for extra guests, a pool table, washer and dryer, large dining table for group meals, and an authentic mountain camp feel. What could be better? For our group that has been traveling for ski trips since 1985, this was a gem. Mark is communicative and helpful. When one of us forgot to pack a small item on check out, he was right on it to mail it - an easy one to blow off for many other renters.KEITH B.
