The best part of this place was the deck. It was very private and had great views. We were surrounded by trees, wildflowers and hummingbirds and a view of the ski hills in the distance. We had breakfast and coffee out there almost every morning. Sure beats looking out at a hotel parking lot! It wasn't fancy but it was cozy and spacious. It is bright in the morning because of the big skylights. We enjoyed being able to cook some of our own meals. It was a nice little drive to town so you are close to all the activities. One of our favorites was the Sunset Happy Hour at the top of the gondola.
