“Hamon is the perfect getaway for a group. The rooms are lovely, the living and kitchen area is large and great for entertaining after a long day of skiing. The best part of it all is the ski in/out experience. With the house being right on the slopes, you can be the first in and last off.

Jerry was a great host and helped us work through some of the problems after a few snowy days.”
