Definitely recommend this place. It was quiet, cozy, and clean. The owner was very friendly, nice, and helpful. Only downsides seemed that the lodge is far from the mountain (it was about a 45min twisty/turny drive to Ski Apache) and the floor is a little creaky (heard people walking around upstairs at 2am). Also, the wifi wasn't great (but who... More

Very cozy place and reasonably priced. Close to good restaurants and the drive to the slopes wasn't very bad at all. Would come back. The place was very well kept, dishes, coffee, microwave, toaster, refrigerator all included. We didn't bring our bathing suits so couldn't utilize the hot tub but it was pretty warm while we were there anyways.

My family stayed here for a weekend and it was a great experience. They had double booked us at first but they gave us 2 rooms to resolve the problem. They have updated the rooms and made a big improvement. The kitchens are small but they get the job done, we fed a family of 7 with it. The staff... More

We had stayed at this place a couple of times some years back, and it didn't rate very high with us. Because we couldn't get the dates we wanted in another place, we decided to give this one another try. In the intervening years, they'd done some worthwhile updates. The only problem is that few kitchens have received those updates,... More

We were a family of 7 and chose to stay in the Presidentail Condo. WOW, what a good choice! Kitchen was large, clean and beautiful, and the living area with fireplace was very large and super comfortable. Having two baths is great. The private courtyard was remarkable, roomy and well layed out, complete with a nice big grill. Probably what... More

The condo had a fool kitchen, fireplace, living room, and king bed. You can buy firewood and or log from the front desk. The staff was helpful and friendly. Condo was perfect for us after a long day skiing and going out to dinner.

The lodge was very nice, clean and a great value. Some of the folks staying there were a bit "iffy,", but that is the only concern that we had. We would stay there again for sure.

We stayed at the Village Lodge for a weekend trip with our two children and our dog. We were very pleased. Not too fancy, but very clean, and it suited our needs. It had a living room with a tv and a sofabed, and a fireplace. The kitchen had a fridge, microwave, stove, and basic dishes and utensils. We found... More
