Spaciously furnished with natural and luxurious furnishings, and meticulously maintained - many experienced guests say that the Laughing Moose Lodge is the nicest place to stay at the entire resort!
(Note: As a result of the need for meticulous maintenance and the unfortunate experiences of previous guest groups, there is a minimum age requirement of 30 to reserve the Laughing Moose Lodge. Thank you for understanding)
Our stay was perfect! The house is in a perfect location, close to the ski hill and right on the golf course we’re we could sled! The house was amazingly clean with comfortable beds and a lot of space! Very nicely decorated as well! Looking forward to hopefully going back in the future!
Over the years, we have rented the Laughing Moose Lodge many times. The owners take great care with this home. The house is updated, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped (even a griddle and waffle maker!), the decor is lovely and the location excellent (we are at the slopes in five minutes or less). The floor plan is nice because there is plenty of room and the lower level with two sofas and pool table offers a little getaway for teens or adults. I also appreciate the washer/dryer, the extra blankets, and the comfy furniture in the upstairs living room. I'm sure it will be harder to rent as more people discover this hidden gem, but it is truly a wonderful place to stay and deserves it's great reputation!
What a great house! Plenty of room, clean and perfect for teenagers! Downstairs fun room for the kids to get away from the parents! Minutes from the ski hill. Would rent it again in a heart beat.
Great home and property for a large family gathering (....we've stayed here the last two Easters) or for a group of friends. Owners are very prompt in communicating. Absolutely a 5 star home and HomeAway experience. Lots of beds/bedrooms and living space - well appointed - lots of parking.
This property is always in great shape.
Great location in the heart of Crystal Mountain. Walk to the town centre in 5 minutes. Property backs onto the fairway of the golf course. Very clean and spacious unit with many bedrooms and quite a few beds. The screened in covered porch was very useful for playing cards and enjoyed the outdoors at night without dealing with mosquitos.
Everything was fine. We enjoyed the fire pit area and the BBQ. Plenty of room and very comfortable. We like the proximity to the village, we walked to and from most days. We will rent this house again.
This is the second time we’ve stayed at this property for our Crystal Mountain golf weekend. Plenty of beds to accommodate our group of 14. Home was spotless and well stocked with everything we needed. Used the fire pit every night. Would definitely stay here again.
Second time here! Great experience again. Very clean and very accommodating for our large family. Plenty of utensils and large pans for cooking. Plenty of towels. Lots of chairs by fire pit which we all enjoyed. Love the arrangement of bedrooms and the decor of house! Thanks!!!
This home had the ambiance of a forested home on a golf course. The backyard was spacious with tree-covered swing and fire pit. We used the home for its openness and many areas to spread out. The screened in porch on a cool day with its fan was very comfortable. The kitchen was used for many large family meals and the seating for dinner was great with the large kitchen table and porch set. We spoke with this owner one time with an appliance issue and he helped us with his contact number for emergencies. Thanks for a great stay.
