We enjoyed our stay here. The room was bigger than i thought it was going to be and very clean! My husband enjoyed reading the aviation books in the room. I looked for some plastic cups to drink our wine from and found real wine glasses and an opener! Nice toiletries too. Even Advil. It is on the outskirts of...

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst doing a bit of skiing. Checked in at Sleepy Forest Office which was 5 mins down road. Check-in was quick and staff at office very helpful and friendly. There are approx. 8 cottages situated at a quiet area on the edge of town. The cottages themselves are of a nice size, ours consisted of...

Hello, thanks for the nice review! I want to point out up front that Cathy's Cottages is only one of our locations. Our main lodge, Sleepy Forest Cottages, is a quarter mile from the Village and Snow Summit, walking distance to restaurants, and a half a block from the lake. I would recommend you try Sleepy Forest Cottages next time....

Stayed at Cathy's Cottages over the July 4th weekend and it had everything we needed in one compact, charming little cottage. Bed was comfortable, mini kitchen with fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the bathroom vanity area and a great shower. Loved the community garden area where I read and had my evening cocktail in comfortable patio furniture. Met the...

My wife and I have been married for five years. Between our children and my career.... Getting away has not been an option. My mother in law offered to babysit and my wife and I finally took her up on the offer. We did not have much time to research our accommodations. Based on reviews that we read, we elected...

Thank you for making our day be letting us know you had a good getaway. When we built the first Jacuzzi Fireplace Honeymoon Cottages in 1985, we felt that marriage is wonderful, but tough sometimes and every couple needs to get back on a honeymoon regularly. We have been well rewarded by folks like you having a good stay together!

For my husbands 50th birthday we just wanted to get far enough away to feel like we were really going somewhere since we live in a pretty amazing place - in South Redondo Beach.

Thank you for letting others know you enjoyed your stay. We especially love to hear that! After doing this 32 years, we want only the best experiences for our guests.

We had a nice big room with a fireplace, tv, fridge and microwave. The restroom was very big with a shower. Unfortunately, our room's queen bed mattress was bad. It was way too soft & neither my husband and I got good night rests. I would highly recommend the owners change it. I'm sure it's an old one. The open...
