*All weekends are a three-night minimum because we book up 100% for the ski season; so if you don’t take a particular weekend someone else will. If you can not possibly stay for three nights, another option is to use the “third night” to benefit from a very late check out… so instead of the usual 12 noon departure from our home on Sunday; you can ski all day, soak in the hot tub (once it’s repaired), eat dinner, grab a quick shower, sip hot coco on the deck late in the afternoon, etc. and then depart. This is also very convenient if there are any non-skiers in your group. Also, if the night preceding your weekend remains open, then for the price of a three-night weekend you can also get an early check in (the usual is 6 pm to allow for cleaning).
Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.

Redundant deposits will be returned or reapplied to alternate dates at your discretion. Early & Late Season Snow Guarantee exclusive of cleaning fees. Sorry: no refunds (beyond our “Snow Guarantee” above) due to too much snow; not enough snow; rain or shine.

We celebrated my mom's 60th birthday in this amazing home. The location was great -- just up the ski hill from Schuss Village yet close enough for the kids to walk down to the pool or the general store. We used this same home for a ski trip last winter. As great as it is in the summer it's even better when the snow flies. Nothing like skiing right up to the fire pit for a hot coco. This trip was spent playing board games around the inside fire place, cooking way too much yummy food in the gourmet kitchen, and drinking wine while soaking in the outdoor hot tub. The master suite was a great place to drink coffee and curl up with a good book on the deck overlooking the woods in the morning. And after a long day bicycling and hiking the local trails the jetted tub was just the thing that we needed! WE loved this home in the winter, and again in the summer. We'll definitely be back!
Gorgeous log house on perfect ski hill location. Beautiful and cozy inside with lots of sleeping space. My family & extended family were able to stay together with room & personal space. Family time has so much more quality when you all stay together.
Amazing location. Close to so many different events and activities. We will most assuredly return.
Perfect multi-family ski vacation rental. We have rented this home 3-years in a row. Comfortably accommodates all of us (6-adults + 8-kids). Truly the best location at Schuss Mountain. Kids can come & go as they like while adults can join them or hang out at the bonfire slopeside. Home is well -kept and is furnished with everything we need.
We had a group of 12 that stayed in this beautiful home Jan 4-7 and it was as advertised - "Nicest in Schuss Mountain" Our group enjoyed the access to ski slope, hot tub, heated bathroom floors, outdoor fire pit and proximity to Ivan's for apres ski activities. We would rent again without hesitation! Leah Iglehart Cavatini Ski Club
Absolutely beautiful, clean home! The three levels is a huge plus when living with other families and children. The property was amazing, and the bonfire area was great!! Close to Torch Lake also! The home had everything we needed and more.
Wonderful place in the summer beautiful views and gorgeous house
Ski in ski out location was perfect. Driveway was a bit challenging.
