The photos don’t do it justice.
You know how sometimes you look at the on-line photos of a property and the real thing just doesn't live up to the pictures? You know how sometimes you read the rave reviews and when you get there you wonder what those people were thinking? Well awestruck is far better than the pictures. The view is far better than the pictures. The property is far better than the reviews. And snowshoeing in Rocky Mountain National Park is heaven. And following a cold, snowing day in the mountains with a really hot hot tub (and really cold beer) is the best of all. Full disclosure: the property managers keep the house in tip top condition, but we found them difficult to deal with. They raised the price above the price quoted on Flip Key, and wouldn't honor their advertised price (bait and switch), but we went anyway and the place was worth the money. They pushed the "property damage insurance" (which we declined) and then we had a hassle at the end over some small damage -- in fairness, this was resolved satisfactorily. Conclusion: we'll go back again and again.
