Guest Reviews

Lexington, Kentucky

"Super convenient to the hill!
The condo was very nice. Service was great. Ski locker was a bonus. We loved being able to cook meals, and have skiers return home on their own schedule."

"Some of the best lodging I’ve stayed in - ever!
All I can say is "Swanky!" We had an enormous living room, kitchen and balcony area. I loved the fireplace. Staff was cheery, helpful."
