FALL Season: the evenings are cooler, the campfires are blazing and the harvest is coming off the farm. Mountain bike from the top of the ski runs, or just ride the lift and enjoy the fall foliage. Foliage runs mid September through mid Oct.
WINTER Season: the leaves are down and the mountains are still the best place to be. Skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country, tubing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing can keep you busy. Come March, watch local farmers tap trees and make maple syrup gold.

Ivan was a great host with good communication through the whole time of our rental.
We really enjoyed our stay at the house. Fall was such a great time of year to be up there. It is located in a private community on a secluded lake with great views of nearby mountains and foliage. Perfect for getaways from the city!
John's lakefront cabin was an awesome hideout for a quiet weekend out of the city. The cabin is very well kept, clean, and snazzy. Modern utilities in the kitchen and bathroom etc if that's important to you. All the amenities listed in the description are there and working beautifully! Stocked with kitchenware, bath toilette, and really anything you could ask for in an Air BnB. The exterior is amazing , with lakefront access to a rowboat and a kayak , a nice sloping yard, a porch, hammock, firepit, grill etc. We had an excellent time and would certainly consider returning again. John is super communicative and easy to get in touch with. The cabin is described very accurately and in well-kept conditions all around. Highly recommended
Ivan's place was beautiful and private. It's the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. I definitely recommend it!
We had a wonderful time at Ivan's lake house! We were a group of four (two couples) visiting from NYC. Ivan was very easy to communicate with and provided us with a lot of information on the cabin and surrounding areas. Best of all, the cabin was perfect! The bedrooms were large with beautiful views of the lake, cabin was very clean and well decorated/furnished, and the property itself was gorgeous -- rolling lawn that dumps straight into the lake, private dock, row boat and kayak, porch, lawn furniture, fire pit, fire wood, etc.
The cabin was great and we can't wait to visit again in the future!
We had a fantastic experience at Ivan's place. The cabin was beautifully designed and very well stocked, there certainly is a wine glass for every occasion. The setting was spectacular, calming and private, and aside from some late summer mosquitos, we could not have asked for better. We got great use out of the dock, the grill and the hammock and we wouldn't hesitate to go back. Ivan was responsive, available and helpful, it was a perfect summer get away.
My family had a great experience at John's place. The interior of the house was great with lots of cool decorating touches, but the exterior was even more impressive. With options like kayaking, building a fire by the lake, reading in the hammock, laying around in the grass (or running if you were my 1.5 yr old son), or grilling out and eating on patio; we could have just stayed at the house the whole week. But the area has so many cool options to explore as well, which we definitely took advantage of. We had a great week, would highly recommend John's place, and would try to stay there again if we ever make the trip back.
Ivan's cabin is mindblowingly good. I really could not recommend it more. We were three couples and spent an entire three days at the house, barely leaving the property. The lake is incredibly pretty and we spent our evenings by the fire pit or BBQ'ing. Highly recommend.
