My wife and I stayed for two nights at one of the cottages during a weekend ski trip to Bellayre. The cottage was very clean, cozy and functional. Despite it's size, it included a refrigerator, oven/gas stove, kitchen sink and gas fireplace. They also had extra blankets, ample towels, cable TV (a bit fuzzy) and a dvd player. The bathroom was small, but functional - a walk-in shower with a toilet and small sink. The fireplace added a cozy touch. Despite being near the road, it was very quiet at night, which was good. Unfortunately, we encountered some problems with drainage (it was -22 degrees and the shower and kitchen sink drains iced up). Nothing is perfect and problems can happen, but what was important was that Sara and Brian did their best to resolve the issues as quickly and as best as they could. They were also considerate enough to give us a partial refund for the inconvenience. Their friendliness, genuine care and attention is what sets them apart from other hotel/motel owners. We would gladly stay in Phoenicia motel and cottages next time we visit the area.
