Up in the beautiful loft area they have large windows that you can look out and see the ski slopes from Blue Mountain Ski Resort, but we will talk about that resort later. Another incredible feature this home has is the cozy 4 season room with hardwood floors, a slate and granite fireplace, and a granite top wet bar. My favorite part is when you sit in that room on a snowy day it feels like you are sitting in a snow globe with all the windows surrounding you. What an amazing view.
