“This property was excellent for groups.”
We couldn't have been happier here on our week-long ski property. As two families with kids, it was great to have the space to spread out, especially on days when the weather didn't co-operate for skiing and boarding. I am always skeptical of how well equipped kitchens will be for groups, so despite our Bachcare manager (Liz) advising that it was well equipped, I still brought along a big stock pot for soups. I needn't have bothered - it was a super well-stocked kitchen with plenty of big pots and pans, and plates and cutlery to see a group through 2-3 meals before you have to run the dishwasher. It's also really thoughtfully appointed. Our appreciation to the owners of the Vicarage!- Michelle, July 2018
