We stayed here during July so we could get early starts on hiking and do stargazing at night. We stayed in the Studio room.
The location can't be beat. It is right next to Brighton Ski Resort. There are many lakes within a couple miles that you can hike to.
The studio room is between other buildings. You have a parking lot you can use the propane barbeque and sit in chairs around. It isn't private if there are other guests staying in other rooms. In fact, our neighbors had kids that literally would stand our patio chairs to peek into our front living room. They also killed a sick chipmunk in front of our unit that my son was hoping we could get wildlife officials to save. The neighbor put it in a plastic bag and smashed its head in front of my young son who has cried for hours after watching. He is still upset about it. But, there is no front desk to go speak to about your neighbors. You need to deal with it yourself or call the manager. Since the other units were being rented by the same family, and their grandpa killed a chipmunk in front of my door, I wasn't sure I could anonymously report them. But it wasn't the getaway I was hoping for.
There is no air conditioning. In July the one room fan needs to run constantly, and it is loud. It doesn't get cool enough to sleep in the room until after midnight. The Studio has 2 loveseats, one that pulls out into a bed, a queen in the loft, and a full bed in a bedroom. I slept in the bedroom with my feet dangling off the bottom of this small bed. I am 5' 5" and still couldn't fit with my legs straight. There is a really old TV in the room. The window was missing a screen so I couldn't open it or I would have a bug problem.
They have lots of TV channels, a kitchen with all the tools you need for cooking, a table with 4 chairs as well. The bathroom is up in the loft and has a very powerful shower, no tub.
As you enter the room there is a storage area for your outdoor equipment which is handy.
I won't go there in summertime again. Its too hot without a cooler in July. Also, the lack of privacy or onsite management will probably keep me from returning. I could live without an onsite management office happily if there were privacy.
I think winter would be good since the resort is next door. That would be the only reason to ever consider staying here.
