Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Log Chalet over the President's Day weekend. It's our yearly pilgrimage to Masthope, where we gather with family and friends, and our first stay at this home.
The photos don't do this home justice. Everyone had the same impression the moment they came over. Beautiful on the outside, warm and inviting on the inside. As soon as you come in, there's a room for your skis and boards, hooks for your ski jackets and a place to warm your boots. Upstairs, the wood burning fireplace removed the chill in our bones (It was very cold - below zero!) from our time on the slopes at Big Bear. (By the way, the Lodge at Big Bear has fantastic burgers!) Bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. We took a day trip across the Delaware into New York, traveling over the historic Roebling Bridge and down to Barryville. There, we made a left onto Rt.55 (There's a great restaurant/bar on the corner called The Carriage House.) to Eldred for dinner at Henning's Local, a top notch restaurant at the old fishing and hunting preserve. Great place, great food!
No matter where we went, it was always a pleasure returning to The Log Chalet. I would love to see what this home is like in the summer! There's a very nice pool at The Lodge as well as a beautiful lake with swimming and boating just minutes away - and don't forget the Delaware's right there too, with scores of tube and raft rentals close by.
Our every dealing with Steve, the home's owner, was an effortless pleasure. He's friendly and funny, and mostly concerned you have the best time possible.
We did, and would recommend The Log Chalet to any family looking for a great comfortable get away or vacation.
