When I booked, I was a little uncertain of what to expect. I am go glad we gave this place a try! We had a huge 3 bedroom/ 2 bath condo. 2 rooms had king size beds, the other room had 3 twins. The kitchen was well stocked for all of our needs. We had a washer and dryer as well. Large living and dining area. Clean and had a nice balcony. We even had a view of the bay! Our favorite was the rooftop deck for bbq and dinners. The pool and clubhouse were closed due to COVID, but that didn’t detract from our fun. We would stay again!

We have stayed here a few years ago and looked forward to our visit. We were not disappointed in anything. All of the front desk and housekeeping staff were so nice, caring and helpful. One evening I went out to the hot tub by myself and the man at the front desk came running out to turn on the jets for me so I could "get the whole experience" . That was so nice. Our unit was very large and comfortable as well.

Thank you for taking the time to review and mentioning the nice and conscientious staff. That hot tub is great after a day on the slopes (well, anytime really). We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

It's very unusual for to not have even 1 critique for a hotel, but we had an amazing stay. The staff was very friendly, we received daily housekeeping. The washer and dryer in the room was a big plus. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked, the living room was comfortable. The best part was the balcony. We sat out every morning eating our breakfast and looking at the bay. Even the concierge didn't give us a hassle about not attending their meetings. We plan to come back again, as we really loved the area.

we traveled with our parents to Northern Washington to take in the Pacific Northwest. the staff at the resort was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. this proved an excellent location to travel to see North Cascades, Vancouver and Victoria. Rooms are spacious and beds comfy. We grilled dinner a couple of nights from the rooftop which has an outstanding sunset view.

Nice staff, but this is a basic summer vacation rental. We had a 2 bedroom condo that was roomy, but had NO air conditioning. The TVs were way too small, and the paper products were substandard. Definitely not a luxury getaway, but probably a decent deal for a family with kids. Our unit faced the pool, and it was noisy because you had to keep the windows open for a breeze. They did enforce the pool closure every night at 10pm. Also, it's a small thing, but the parking lot needs to be paved. No way to roll your luggage to and from the car when all the good spots are taken. And the gravel destroys high heeled sandals!
