Bill and Michelle are the consummate hosts, providing direction on great locals only hikes and sights to see. Breakfast is prepared by Bill and best of all they allow pets - yet their guest rooms are spotless with no hints of other dogs being present. If you leave your best friend at home their rotund pointer Annie is a total sweetheart and will keep your feet warm, if you so request, while you lounge in front of the fireplace.
For snowsliders Winter Creek's groundskeeper is a backcountry guru and can take intermediate and above riders and skiers on some of the best powder days that you'll ever experience. In summer that activity turns to mountain biking.
We've stayed at Winter Creel several times and cannot recommend them highly enough. The vibe is great and the value is solid.
