The campfire lodge was so cozy and intimate ! The indoor fireplace in the middle of the living room was so cool ! I loved the fireplace next to the hot tub , super accommodating for a big group! The bedrooms were super cozy and the blinds in the living room helped accommodate if someone wanted to sleep in the living room ! Super close to the ski slopes and the restaurants in town!

You do not need to look any further… this place is so epic! It has all you need - it’s super cozy yet modern, luxurious, fun, close to the slopes… all the things! We came with our kids, parents, and another family and had the BEST time! If we didn’t love snowboarding so much we would have just hung out at the Campfire all day! It far exceeded our expectations and we are already making plans for another longer visit soon! The whole crew was so stoked! The hot tub was a hit, the “campfire” in the middle of the house was a hit, the high-quality comfy furniture was a hit… don’t wait, just book it! The owners are so kind and helpful, too. So thankful we found this gem!

Our family had a great time. The house is located very close to all Massenutten has to offer. We loved the decor, it was very clean, and the bathrooms were beautiful. Family had a great time using the hot tub and outdoor fire pit. Caleb, the host, was very responsive and kind. He has developed a guide book and QR codes that provide you with all the info about the house and amenities. It was really nice not to have to bring towels/sheets and beds were comfy. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful house with great amenities, perfect location for skiing and lots of family fun. Loved all the decor and the cozy blankets. Hot tube was ready to go when we arrived which was a plus, we rent lots of places and we usually can’t use the hot tub the first day because it needs to heat up. Caleb was a great host and had a quick response time. Would give this house 5 stars!
