Great Dog Friendly Property

Bev from Kamloops, Canada
Date: Feb-01-2016 for a stay in Jan 2016

The property was very comfortable and welcoming with lots of personal touches. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and all the extras you need everyday like spices, plastic wrap tin foil etc.We needed a dog friendly property and this certainly fitted the bill, the dog line out the back is very thoughtful so the dog can hang out with the hot tubbers!

We totally enjoyed our stay at this "home away from home". We had a few issues with the hot tub, but the owners were quick to address it and got it fixed as soon as possible. Greatly appreciated! This property is not really ski in , ski out but Morrisey is easily accessed.

Vacation Rental Reviews by Flipkey

Lovely Home away from Home

Mommaforgs from Edmonton, Canada
Date: Jan-11-2016

We totally loved staying at this condo. It was cozy. Three bedrooms with four bathrooms. The owners thought of everything while setting up their place including drying stands for wet mitts. Hot tub was great! The property is not really ski in, ski out but access to Morrissey where you can buy your ski pass is very close. The property is also attached to walking paths, close to snowshoe paths and very close to the Nordic cross country paths. Excellent location. I would highly recommend this "Home away from Home".
