Staying at Edelweiss is like transporting your own home to the mountains! Ours was a condominium with full kitchen, dining area, living area, and two upstairs bedrooms: a double for the kids and a large king with a balcony for my wife and I, one full bath upstairs and one half bath downstairs. The complex is small and intimate but includes a heated swimming pool with barbecue grills and a coin-op laundry. We like to bring our own groceries with us which makes the stay very economical as a family. And we also take advantage of the laundry so we don't come home to a lot of washing. Edelweiss also has towel and cleaning service on request. The owners are super nice and glad to help you anytime. He even gave us his personal cell phone number in case of any emergencies. There are no (land) phones in the condos so you will need your cell but this is actually a blessing not a curse. They have free high-speed internet if you wish to stay in touch with the outside world. But the location is so nice! It is located just one block off of Main Street at High Street and Mallette Roads, so you are not in the middle of the traffic but you are walking distance from all the shops and attractions. We stayed on the side bordered by Mallette Road and had a view of the ski mountain from our balcony every morning!. Mallette Road eventually becomes a gravel forest road leading into the Carson National Forest. The Condos are on one side and a fir and aspen tree-covered hill is on the other. Just behind the Edelweiss on this same road (before you get into the forest) is Mallette Park. A really nice kids park with a playground, tennis court, and skateboard park. This park backs up to a hill with two mining tunnels right there (closed to public entrance). With all the fir trees and wildlife, this is an enchanted place to spend quality time with young children! The Edelweiss also has lots of hummingbird feeders and the little birds are everywhere and lots of fun for young children (and adults, lol!) to watch. Edelweiss is a great place to come home to and relax after a day of four-wheeling, fishing, or hiking. It is quiet and peaceful. It is also so nice in the morning to open the sliding glass balcony door (there is a screen) and let the cool clean mountain air rush in! It is a wonderful break from the summer heat! We enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to take advantage of their "seventh night is free" deal and stayed an extra day. Though it meant a long driving day the next day, it was worth it to get one more day there! Edelweiss is a great family-friendly retreat and has all the comforts of home in the mountains!
