Karen was a fabulous host! My boyfriend and I stayed at her place for one night! Very accommodating and helpful! The place is very clean and has all the necessities! Definitely hope to stay there again if we visit Blue Mountain in the future! The landscape view in the morning was just phenomenal! Thank you very much.
We ended up reconsidering our early checkout and traded in the sunrise on the snowboarding slopes for the comfort we found in Karen's studio.
For both of us, Karen's hospitality has exceeded our expectations, and we're looking forward to returning here.
Overall a very relaxing and welcoming stay. Karen is a very honest and helpful person. Thanks for all :)
Karen was prompt to respond to emails and sent a very helpful guide prior to our stay. The place was clean, warm and quiet, perfect for winter days.
I highly recommend taking advantage of the local addresses (loved the fresh eggs). Thank you for hosting!
Response from Karen:
I was delighted to meet you both - come again:)
Karen was a lovely host. Directions to her property were very clear. The rental was just what we expected. She left us tea and coffee and farm fresh eggs from the farm down the road. We visited the farm the next day to buy some eggs and beef and pork to take home. We also visited the bakery Karen recommended and loaded up on pies and soups and preserves. Although we only stayed for one night, we got a good feel for the area and had a very cozy stay at Karen's beautiful home.
Karen was very accommodating when, due to the weather, we had to change our plans. She stayed in constant touch with us to give us updates on the storm conditions and when finally, the roads were closed, she let us know right away. The next day, again she kept in touch with us to ensure we knew what to expect driving up. When we arrived, the studio was warm and inviting. Very clean facilities, she even left us some free range eggs for the morning. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely be back if and when we go up to Collingwood again, perhaps in the summer.
Had a great time and Karen was amazing! Highly recommend.
Karen was a great host! Attentive, yet gives you privacy for your stay. The location is only a 10min drive to ski hills (in the winter) and cozy with all amenities required. Thanks a bunch Karen!
Stay at Karen's place was great. We were welcomed with some homemade cookies and lots of brochures. Theres also coffe and cream available to you. As we didnt bring our own food she gave us some bagels and butter as well and instructions how to get to a small brunch place.
The second day there was some freezing rain while we were skiing so she made sure we take the highway back to her place rather than country road as we might get stuck. Basically Karen took really good care of us and I would definitely recommend her place for your stay! She is incredible host :)
needed a place for the eve, Karen was nice enough to accommodate us on a last min.plan. Karen also left us a few snacks in the fridge and on the kitchen counter.
Studio was great! cozy, clean, has a couple of heaters which keep the place really warm if you prefer higher temperatures in your room. very organized and there are instruction sheets for almost anything you want to do and unsure of. she also has a bunch of catalogs to help you find your way around blue mountain and things to do.
I am planning to go to her place again.
