Minutes from downhill skiing or a round of golf, or simply basking in the desert sun by the pool, this property offers a unique vacation experience. Recent improvements to the landscape include a new pebble tec pool and new landscaping in several areas. With several outdoor seating areas, there are abundant desert botanicals to enjoy surrounding this property. Our guests tell us the photographs don't do it justice!More
