"My boyfriend and I stayed here while on a short ski trip at the end of March. The place is great, really beautiful building, with huge windows looking out onto the mountains. After a days skiing, there was nothing better than coming back to a cookie, the hot tub and a cosy seat by the fire- bliss! Anna and Grant went above and beyond to make ou...r stay as comfortable as possible, even helping us to adjust to the altitude (we came from FL). Breakfast was always delicious and the perfect start to a day on the mountains. Our room was really comfortable and warm, with stunning views over the peaks. There were very useful coat racks to hang all our gear on and the ski room was great to leave all our stuff in. I think it is exceptional value for what you get, most places in Breck are pretty overpriced during ski season. All in all, we had a great time and hope to be back next year, it was the perfect trip!"
