Customer Testimonial:
Hey Brian, We had a great trip last weekend to the cabin. Joe and Kelly were really great hosts. Joe patiently drove up through tough road conditions. Kelly was fantastic, cooking breakfasts and a dinner. It was really nice not to have to stop at a restaurant. They made the trip seem like a family outing. All of us skiers became friends and skied together during most of the two days of skiing. We all enjoyed the hot tub too. I also appreciate the flexibility we had to choose the resort. We chose Northstar both days due to the windy conditions. I can't recommend Joe and Kelly enough. Too bad they were too busy taking care of business to get much skiing in. Thanks!
