“Reasonably priced, but you know what they say.....”
Reviewed 3 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

"You get what you pay for." MTE filled our sleeping accommodations well. We are two families with kids from 8 to 15, boys and girls, close cousins. So the one bedroom with two sturdy bunkbeds fit the bill. This BR was located on the ground (lower) floor along with a second bedroom nicely appointed with a queen sized bed and ample closet and drawer space. This lower floor has access to the street level including a ski closet, and one full bath. On the next floor up is the living area including the kitchen, laundry and LR/DR. The third floor is a nice, private master with its own full bath. The two masters and the LR have a TV.

The house was comfortable enough but we were surprised to find some absurd inconsistencies: no cooking pans or large serving bowl, only one dish towel, a washer that would stay on the rinse cycle unless you were home to manually turn it to 'spin' and the fridge froze our vegetables repeatedly (finally we figured we had to store them at the bottom) But it had two ironing boards (??)

We had to fix the stove top (one of the electric coils was unplugged from the unit) and clean up some smoky residue at the bottom of the (hot) oven before we could cook without ventilating the place.

The other odd part was we were not informed - nor were we expecting - any kind of housekeeping. But one day, it was clear taht someone came, made the beds, cleaned up the bathrooms and basically left the rest of the place in shambles. Our thought: don't bother. It was creepy having someone in the house during the day, and we had to come home to a messy kitchen anyway....

The location required some organizing for a family with a wide age range for kids. Ultimately we were able to go up lift 7 (and come down that way too) instead of trekking to the Gondola. The Galloping Goose is reliable, though we were often not long on patience.
THe bright spot was the proximity to Clark's grocery which was a complete delight. It has everything from the most basic to ingreds for a fine dinner. We were there every day and, contrary to what we heard, we found the prices reasonable. we live in the Northeast so perhaps our grocery-cost frame of reference is already higher...

I think this place is great for a group of young adults who know they're not cooking for a family and who don't mind the jaunt to the lift across icy roads in the morning. We paid about $4660 for Christmas week.

Thank you for your detailed review of Mountain House East. We are sorry about the confusion with our housekeeping staff. We provide a midweek clean on stays of 5 days or longer. It sounds like yours was not as thorough as it should have been. We apologize for that and we hope you have us another chance.
