We rented this house over Christmas week. It is a nice,big house with heated floors which is nice. However, the furniture is ancient and extremely uncomfortable. It made me think that the owners went to hundreds of garage sales to outfit the place! And the kitchen is a horror to attempt to cook in. It is well stocked for large parties, but with only 2 burners on the stove (other side of stove is a grill) and the lack of useful cooking utensils, preparing a meal was a nightmare. Do yourself a favor and skip this place! Wish someone had warned us!
This is a great house with lots of room to entertain and relax. Only problem we had was the oven keeps tripping the breaker. If they get that fixed than this is a great house to stay.
Overall the house is good. Plenty of room for our 12 guests, plenty of beds and baths. However some of the rooms and the way decorated make them useless. Perfect example is the piano room. Altho nice to have pianos and clown decorations the room is nousable square footage to the vacationer. After a couple of days the little things became very nagging. Examples: no TV in back bunk bedroom (shown in on-line pictures), door knobs that will not lock (bathrooms), bath fixture handles that would fall of into our hands (master sink and tub), master shower handle came off in hand as turning on, drawer handels to master dresser fell was like the old joke we played in high school loosen the lid to the ketchup as a joke to the next user. Lucky we travel with a multi-tool. Additionally the second bedroom mattress was very hard and uncomfortable....and 2 of the humidifiers did not work. I called SMR and then talk with a owner's management group and they delivered a couple new humdifiers and installed a topper on second bed which helped. Additionally they left a nice note and 2 bottle of red wine (fruit basket would have been more attractive, none of us drink;)). In conversation with SMR and owner's contact they asked us to make a "list" of items to be corrected. I suggested that they come by with pen and pad to review the nagging issues...however this did not happen. Overall I would rate this the lowest rental that I have experienced in Breck. Not due to the house (loved the size and design) but for the lack of attention to detail and making the home comfortable. We have stayed in 5 different locations in Breck and this one was so-so and will not use in the future. Ps. the house included a very nice stereo system that can be played throughout the house. However at first all we would get is a loud humm...only to find our that the speakers in the stereo room was disconnected...hmmm kindof like the ketchup lid again...just poor attention to details.
We love the house, location, amenities, etc. One thing we found a little inconvenient was the Jenn Air stove top. The knobs on the two burners were not markedIt was
