Our family friendly town has a lot to offer when it comes to the winter months, great cabins included! Here are 5 of our best properties for your ski vacation.

Rocky Top Vista

This log cabin is located near the ski area with great views of the Face. Skiers won’t have to go very far to jump on the lift and go up the mountain. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch and enjoy the view of the town’s ponds. You might just see some wildlife walking through the yard while you’re enjoying the mountain views. On Friday and Saturday nights you can sit on the front porch and have VIP views of the torchlight parade* that takes place down the Face of the mountain. For those that are fans of John Wayne - it might intrigue to know that legend has it the Duke himself has stayed here at this beautiful cabin. 

101 River Property Resort

This property is physically located close to multiple ski lifts within walking distance. Enjoy this cabin that sits directly on the river after a full day of skiing. Relax on the porch as you listen to the sounds of nature as well as the sound of the river flowing. Located one block south of Main Street you are in the middle of town and within walking distance to many stores and restaurants such as Brett’s Bistro where you can enjoy anything from cheeseburgers to wild elk.

Claim Jumper #9 Townhouse

This condo is located across the street from the Face and nestled between the river and the fishing ponds. Also walking distance to The Grill at the Lift House where you can enjoy a beer and nachos while watching people ski the Face. After a day on the mountain, you might have worked up a healthy appetite. Treat yourself to dinner at  Capo’s, where there is something everyone’s palette. Once you get back to your cabin, start a fire in the wood-burning fireplace located in the living room. As a guest of Reservations Unlimited, you will find it nice to know that wood is also provided to you during the winter months.

This property of ours is actually above Lil Willies with unique access to the treats located downstairs. The Red River Ski Area’s Platinum chair and the Face is just one block away.
