It was a great trip. I would recommend this place to others.

The Ridgeview Chalet was the perfect Thanksgiving getaway for us! We had a fairly large party, (literally, with over half of us being well over 6 feet tall), and the chateau still felt plentiful and spacious for our entire family. The location is perched atop a quiet mountain hillside, with excellent access to nearby trails and walking distance to the slopes. With ample amenities such as a TV, a fireplace, jacuzzi, and pool table, it was the perfect vacation away from the city buzz and the glow of cellphones to finally give us time to unplug and talk to each other in a luxurious cabin under the stars. Rand is the perfect host! He was very easy to communicate and was quick to respond to our questions about checking in. The cabin was spotless upon our arrival, with a dozen freshly washed guest towels waiting for us after our long journey. If you're looking for a tranquil place to get a away for a weekend, without sacrificing the all of the comforts of home, look no further- you've picked the right place! We would definitely stay again in a heartbeat.

The house was lovely and spacious and in a great location for us. The hot tub could have used some TLC as tiles falling off and jets not working properly but really enjoyed the rest of the house!

The cabin was location and size was great for our group. However, we did find issues with some of the amenities that were provided. The jacuzzi was dirty the first night but someone came to clean it the next day. I did find a dead mouse (in a trap) during our stay which really freaked out a lot of my guests. Overall the cabin did provide us with a nice view of the mountains and a place to enjoy. However, I wish it was cleaner in some areas.

Just got back from our summer getaway in this beautiful location. We were able to kayak close by. This place was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. Both my husband and I enjoy cooking extensive meals and this kitchen had all the tools we needed. We can't wait to visit again in the winter this time.
