“Nice house--not well maintained”

Our first impression upon arrival was, "Is this the right house?" The sign had the house name, but a different number than I had seen on the agreements. It wasn't lit on the outside and was difficult to find the door to which the key fit. Once we did, it was very nice inside. Kitchen was fairly well stocked (although the built-in griddle was filthy!!!) and there was firewood waiting by the fireplace. There was a half-drunk can of beer and a water bottle in the downstairs sanitary tub near the air hockey table. The beds were incredibly comfortable and I'll be buying a similar mattress in the near future. When we were preparing to go to bed, we looked for thermostats to adjust the temp. The upper level and basement were very cold and we figured we hadn't found the thermostats. We looked, and looked, and looked but only found one in the living room. So, we turned it up a little. It helped some upstairs, but not downstairs, which remained cold all of our visit. Not icy cold, but low 60s cold. Fortunately, there were tons of blankets around so the boys covered up under several layers. As we were packing up to leave, I saw the filter for the heat pump was totally clogged. No wonder it was so freezing. Doesn't anyone ever check and replace these things? There were also many lights throughout the house (inside and out) that were burned out. Some were out of reach (living room above the quilt on the wall) and some required outdoor lamps, which we couldn't find. All in all, it was a nice house. If we rent again, we will bring space heaters for the basement and check the heat pump filter when we arrive and replace it ourselves if it is clogged like that.

“Beautiful house, great location, plenty of room”

We have a group of 8-10 adults that get away for a long weekend ski vacation every year. We have stayed at the Apres Ski before, primarily for slopeside access and the number of separate beds it offers. The house is just about perfect, with a notable exception brought into focus on this last trip: Not all beds are created equal. The house is more suited for families with kids along that can bunk together 4-to-a-room in the lowermost floor than four adult males can in the same space. Other than that, I highly recommend the house, and I can say that Becky at Mountaintop Realty is a pleasure to work with!
