The conference facilities perfect and the location is ideal if you want the attendees to feel special. Food is great, the rooms are large and comfortable, and the location! Even if you don't like hiking, just breathing the air here is wonderful.

Came up for a 3 night stay to celebrate a wedding. Everything was fantastic. From the moment we pulled up, the manager came out to help us unpack our car. The service was sublime. The room was spacious, well-appointed, clean, and very charming. The Plumpjack bar downstairs was classy, great drinks, great conversation from all the bartenders that work over... More

This place feels like Home for me and I am welcome each time like it is Home. Staff is friendly, courteous and professional. The granola in the morning is a must and the after ski burger with a nice glass of wine in the bar area is the finish of a long day outside.

I stayed at the Plumpjack in 2006 briefly. Never forgot it. Stayed for a with another couple last week for spring skiing. Never have forgotten Squaw, Close to all lifts. Room was great and the staff was outstanding. Plan on going back in August.

We love the PlumpJack family. Thanks for always making our stay easy and comfortable. Always look forward to the killer breakfast - especially the red velvet pancakes! The location doesn't get more convenient in the valley.

A great place to stay with welcoming staff, clean and comfortable rooms with a mountain feel to the whole place. The food was great, in particular the sensational breakfasts. The gym was a bonus - if only the snow matched the accomodation experience!

We stayed over a weekend in a ground floor king room. The hotel is in a great location near the ski mountain and is fine, clean, etc. The only reason that I'm giving it a poor rating is that the walls are extremely thin. At 11 at night the neighbors across the hall were playing music. When we called to... More

Hi Liz - thank you for the recent visit. It's our goal for guests to relax, refresh and enjoy their stay. Our building was constructed prior to the 1960 Olympic Games and does have some inherent quirks and rustic charm. We're currently exploring a re-development of our property in the next couple of years. Please reach out to me directly... More
