Quote: Carriage Hills is a new, beautiful resort. The pool and hot tubs are very relaxing in addition to the sauna. You'll need to soak your feet after hiking around the beautiful land!

Carriage Hills - A Piece of Heaven!


Skiing at the resort is great, either downhill or cross country. The resort has a great grill on-site so you don't need to drive too far to eat.

Quick Tips:

Each unit has a full kitchen, fireplace, TV, stereo, VCR, and laundry. Bring groceries with you, or drive into town to get some.

Best Way To Get Around:

A car is needed to get around. I don't know of any buses around here, and taxis would be very expensive as you really are out of the way at this beautiful hideaway!

The units are quite large and decorated with beautiful pine furniture. We found the resort to be very quiet, which was great. Each room had a small deck so you could sit outside. The pool had many chairs, so it was easy to hang out at the pool as well. The resort has outdoor barbecues around many of the units. The pool is about 100 steps away from most units, so bring a robe and some "wet" shoes to go back and forth. There are lots of hiking areas around, as well as ski areas. If you go in the summer there is a nice beach also, which is about an hour away. The unit has all the amenities--laundry, full kitchen, dishwasher, VCR, two TVs, stereo, dining area, large closets, and Jacuzzi. ...Read More
