The hosts Krista and Eric have a wonderful spot here that we will continue to return to year after year! We have visited several time and used both the hostel and the apartment suite. What we love is:
-we can mountain bike right from the door!
-we can x-c ski right from the door!
-they have a huge piece of land with a pathway that leads right to the Moberly Pub--great for a drink at the end of an active day!
-The breakfast baskets are a nice touch, especially since the eggs are right from their property!
-There is lots to do on right there for your down time including horseshoes, volleyball, foosball, BBQing and taking a nice stroll on the trails on their property.
We have also rented the whole hostel out before to run an avalanche course from and had this as our home base after the field days. It works great for this sort of group activity too.
We almost feel like we don't want to write a review as then more people will know of our great little secret gem of a getaway! Thanks Krista and Eric and of course, see you soon!
