      Location, location, location, and dedication to detail make our condo the most requested 2 bedroom - 2 bath unit at the resort. We are located in the first building on the ground floor closest to the rental office. No need to carry all that luggage and ski equipment up flights of stairs. Unit 1103 was completely renovated in the fall of 2011. All new ceramic tile installed throughout except for the bedrooms which are carpeted. Our fully equipped kitchen has everything you need including garbage disposal, dishwasher, microwave, and icemaker. The living room has a flat screen TV (145 channels), fireplace, DVD player, stereo, and sleeper sofa that turns into a third queen size bed allowing comfortable sleeping accomodations for 6 adults. We have broadband internet and wifi. Both bedrooms are equipped with TV'S and private baths. Bedroom one has a tub/shower combination while bedroom two has a large tiled walk in shower. Just off the dining room there is a wetbar where you will find a complimentary bottle of wine and chocolates along with a bottle of non alcoholic sparkling wine in the fridge for the little ones. When we travel, whether we rent a hotel, vacation home or condo, we expect our accommodations to live up to their billing and as our many reviews in our guestbook and on our website attest to we have met that goal. We live 35 minutes away and check our place every week after housecleaning is completed. We always add a few of our own touches to make sure it is ready for our next guests. All of our contact information is posted in the condo and in case on that rare occasion that a problem should arise that the fine folks in the rental office can't address, we will do everything we can to remedy the situation even if it requires a trip up. My wife is a fanatic about cleanliness and I guarantee you will not find a condo at Blue Knob resort any cleaner than our's. All the condos on the rental plan are privately owned and each one is different. Unfortunately not all the owners have set the high standards for theirs that we have for our own. Please do yourself a favor and request unit 1103 when dealing directly through the rental office. You will be glad you did. Excessive cleaning is only charged if condo is deemed to need additional cleaning beyond normal. Blue Knob All Seasons Resort is known as Pennsylvania's best kept secret. It boasts Pennsylvania's highest skiable mountain with 34 trails and 4 lifts. Some of the runs are 2 miles long. Snow tubing is also a short walk from the condo. Amenities at the resort include indoor pool, outdoor heated pool, hot tubs, steam room, work out area, tennis courts, and Pennsylvania's highest alpine golf course. The Clubhouse bar and restaurant is a good place to have a a sandwich and a cold one. Once you get here park your car and don't worry about driving. Everything is within walking distance except for the slopes. The shuttle to them runs every half hour and picks up right out in front of your condo. The Black Bear Inn restaurant is open during ski season. No matter what the season, you'll have plenty to keep you busy.
