We rented this property to celebrate my parents 50th Anniversary. The house had plenty of room for everyone and it was clean. The elevators were great for my 90 year old grandmother.

“Best Place for a Multi-Generational Family Celebration!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We rented the Bear Grande Chalet (includes both Brown Bear and Black Bear properties) to gather extended family and close friends for my 40th Birthday. It was amazing! We had 22 total guests (ages ranged from 3 to 73) and everyone had comfortable, private accommodations. In fact, this property is perfect for anyone who may be mobility-challenged, since both sides of the home have elevators (I have two family members with disabilities).

As for activities, shuttle service and the like...those of us that ski/snowboard were whisked away to the lift via Moving Mountains private, on-call shuttle service. Those that did not ski/snowboard enjoyed private in-house massages and others went on snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and tubing excursions. All these activities are quickly and easily arranged with the fabulous staff at Moving Mountains and many include prearranged or on-demand transportation to make things simple.

Our group chose to cook for ourselves and the kitchen setups are perfect. High-end appliances, plenty of dinnerware and counter space allowed for easy meal preparation. Per Genevieve's fantastic recommendation, we hired a chef/caterer to prepare a birthday dinner. Everyone raved about the food quality, variety and presentation.

We had a few minor issues with the house upon arrival. The ice makers in both kitchens were not producing ice and one garage door needed a minor repair. These issues were addressed within hours. There is no other operation I've encountered that comes close to the quality of service that Moving Mountains provides. We first rented with Moving Mountains in 2004 and will keep coming back. My sincere thanks and shout outs go to Genevieve, Amber, Sarah, Maddie and Robin for all their help in making this birthday celebration the best yet!

Liked best: Spacious, luxurious accommodations. All have private baths.
Liked least: We gathered more often on one side of the house, which became crowded quickly with 22. It just meant we had to split the group across the two dining areas instead of having everyone on one side. A minor nit at best.

“Amazing ski vacation”

Traveled with 9 adults and stayed at Brown bear chalet. The home is just as awesome as pictures. Spacious yet warm and cozy. Moving mountains staff and shuttle drivers were extremely helpful and attentive
