Our Family was in cabin #20 for the New Years weekend, and we were very pleased of out stay at Story Book Cabins. Very kind and helpful staff, our cabin was one of the big ones (#20), and we enjoyed every single moment. The location is very close to town, and about 40 minutes away from all the skiing action....

We stayed here for Christmas this year in cabin #3. We were pleasantly surprised that the cabins were decorated outside with garland and lights! It is warm and cozy! We encountered the snow of the century! The owners made sure we had plenty of firewood. The place looked like a Winter Wonderland! You feel like you are definitely in the... More

We spent Christmas at Story Book Cabins and it was awesome. We rented cabin 23, Aspen Tree. The cabin was cozy and a wonderful place to spend our Christmas vacation. This is our second stay with Story Book and we enjoyed it just as much as our first trip.
