Cedar House Sport Hotel
This husband-and-wife-owned resort is reminiscent of a small European chalet; in fact their inspiration for the hotel – opened in 2006 – sprang from their own stays in the Alps. Owner Jeff Baird tapped his knowledge from years spent as a building contractor to integrate green practices and sustainable materials, such as the exterior cedar cladding, which was sourced from a reforestation project. Rooms run from basic but very comfortable single queens, to kings, king suites, and a luxury suite, with a contemporary, minimalist aesthetic; all accommodations include down comforters imported from Germany
, as well as pillow-top mattresses and luxury linens, mini-fridge, flat-screen TV, and spacious stone-tiled step-in shower. A Euro-style breakfast buffet is included, though the on-site restaurant, Stellar, only holds occasional pop-up events; but there are a number of restaurants just a few minutes’ walk from the resort. Cedar House has an in-house activities concierge service that will help plan winter and summer activities, and the riverside Legacy Trail is close by, as well as an outdoor hot tub for après-ski relaxing. Dogs are allowed for a fee, but must be vetted over the phone, first.
