About Your Accommodations and the AreaIt's a one-of-a-kind, contemporary home in the prestigious Palisades Ski-In/Ski-Out neighborhood of Kirkwood Mountain Resort. Is it the nicest home in Kirkwood? One would have to say, "Yes!" Of the three Ski-In/Ski-Out Palisades homes, this is one of two for rent in which occupants really can ski to the chair lifts. When conditions are right, a groomed spur makes it easy to come and go directly from the backdoor mudroom.
It is the kind of alpine home found in the Rocky Mountains with the finest custom craftsmanship and premium amenities. The attention to detail, style and design is remarkable and satisfies the need for top level treatment from concierge service to the on-mountain experience. It has spectacular views of the surrounding valley from almost every room. Kirkwood has a European ambiance with a horseshoe valley with a expansive meadow below and nearly 10,000-foot-tall peaks above California's finest ski slopes. Views of Red Cliffs with its lustrous crimson sunsets, morning sunrises over Caples Crest and Glove Rock atop of a backdrop high above the Palisades is the setting to look forward to when calling this your home for your vacation time.
