CLEAN MT AIR, GOLF, SWIM, HIKE - BRYCE RESORT, MT. VIEWS, RELAXATION & PRIVACY

Basye Chalet Rental Photos and Description

3 Bdrm, 3 Full Baths, 3 levels, and Large Family Room, sleeps 8-10

Spring and Summer have come to Basye!!. No better place than The Sticks for your family or couples' retreat. View the sunset over North Mountain from either deck, or the stars in our telescope w/ no city lights. Swim, fish, paddleboat or Hike around nearby Lake Laura. Its a short downhill walk from the chalet. AFFORDABLE GOLF in the mountain setting of the course at Bryce Resort. Rock climbing, grass skiing, and zip lines are also at Bryce. 'The Sticks' provides roomy comfort for two families. Large dining room table and well-appointed kitchen and linens. Shenandoah Valley offers peace and quiet, fresh air and endless views. Historic points of interest include nearby Skyline Drive, Orkney Springs (offering outdoor concerts from the Shenandoah Valley Music Festival). There's so much to do. Or, do nothing. It's up to you when your up at 'The Sticks'.

Views: The views from the two wrap-around decks are fabulous. The decks are situated in a way to provide stunning sunsets with the North Mountain as the backdrop. Feel free to use the telescope (3 inch Bushnell Newtonian) to view the stars against the black background of space. Or gain a close-up of North Mountain. Scenic drives are fun along the country roads within the Valley. The Fall offers wonderful picture perfect views of the fall colors from either balcony.

Surroundings: The home is situated on the mountain side with enough land (double lot) ,that the neighbors are barely visible. It's a short haul to the ski lifts and the Bryce Resort. It's a short walk to the Lake where there is swimming and canoeing and trails around Lake Laura. There is a Public Pool with tennis, horseshoe's and a playground for the youngsters.

With in a hour drive...: Luray Caverns, check out the most famous caves in the Metropolitan area. Or experience Sky Line Drive, enjoy the beautiful scenery and easy hiking to feel as you are at the edge of the world! There are lesser known caverns for serious spelunking. Shenandoah Caverns, Crystal Caverns, and Endless Caverns. They are not as famous as The Luray Caverns, but just as beautiful and less crowded. Check out the 'Bacon and Eggs' formation. Get up close and personal with the caves! These caves are for the kind of people who don't mind getting a little dirty. Advice... wear boots!! We have pamphlet's at the house for your convenience, that offer River Rafting and other awesome adventures. and other interesting sight seeing information.

The Onsted's have owned this Chalet since 2006, long enough to have become familiar with this unique family-oriented setting. The views and fresh air are so refreshing and invigorating to the soul.

Kirsten Onsted purchased this chalet in 2006

The mountain views and convenience of its size and bathrooms on each floor. The privacy provided by the unique setting and double sized lot.

Privacy is provided by a wooded double lot. And Quiet provided by the unique setting and quiet streets. But the biggest plus is the great views of sunset on Old North Mountain!

Long weekend in June

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at The Sticks for a long weekend at the end of June. We rented it at the "last minute" and the owners were very responsive in handling our request. The directions provided were excellent, and we found the home with no problem. Having never been to the area, we enjoyed the location central (a couple minutes drive to both, it's walkable to the Lake but not with the kids, it was too hilly for them) to the summer amenities of Lake Laura and the Bryce resort where we tried the paddle boats, golf, and grass tubing. Resort was pretty much empty, very easy to get a tee time, and patake in the summer offerings. The house was very comfortable and homey, great selection of books and magazines. Beds were comfy, bathrooms were clean. The telescope was amazing. The kids really enjoyed the ping pong and bumper pool, great for a rainy afternoon. Kitchen was pretty well stocked with utensils, dishes, etc. Very nice place for the price. We may return for the ski season!

Great skiing trio

  • 4 of 5
Great time we had on our Christmas trip. We loved the location to Bryce Ski Resort and civil war historical sites. The house was perfect for ours needs as we have two girls and two boys. The two bedrooms worked well for our children. The houses living areas were comfortable and cozy. The house in nestled in a neat wooded neighborhood. ..really pretty during Christmas with lights. Close amenities about 15 minutes away for groceries. Are children love mini pool table and ping pong table. We would definitely rent this house again for any season.

Relaxing weekend!

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at The Sticks. Very reasonable price for a weekend stay. The house was pretty well maintained and the kitchen was stocked with essentials. The walk to the lake was not as close as we thought, should probably just drive. Great view from the deck. We had a great stay!

Not again!

  • 1 of 5
We arrived on Saturday September 1, 2012. The area is beautiful, the cabin far less than the pictures and write up provides. The carpet through out the the first floor is hideous, and the cabin itself smelled of mold and mildew. This cabin is a money maker for the owner and nothing else, the owner does not care about the guest, its about how much can I make?!!! Inone word Hideous.

Owner's Response: Not Again??
The Sticks in Basye is intended as a "laid-back" mountain getaway, suitable for families or groups, but certainly not as a showcase for fine furniture and art. We are very interested in the comfort and pleasure of our guests. We have had many happy renters who have made return visits, some within a matter of months.
We know of no mold or mildew in the chalet. We will have it checked out but there is no known existing problem. Carpet damage has resulted from wear and tear of families and groups, and repeated cleaning has not removed all stains. It is scheduled to be replaced in the near future.
Rental of The Sticks is an effort to help defray the costs of ownership, upkeep and maintenance in order to keep it in our family. Not, as a big money-maker! Our minimum rate.per two night stay provides little more than utilities, rental fees and housekeeper. But lots of families and groups have shared great times at The Sticks.
