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.

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!
We came from Boston, Virginia, Maryland , and DC to enjoy a weekend of yoga ,dancing, ping pong, singing , kayaking, tanning lakeside, hiking, and "Titantic". Beer flowed, the grill was fired-up, and thank you for letting us rent your place.
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!
We had a very enjoyable time at the Sticks. Peaceful, spacious and comfortable. Every room was clean and well equipped. Our son spent the week learning to ski at Bryce Resort - only minutes away. We would love to visit again...and perhaps bring some friends - there is plenty of room! Thank you so much.
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.
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!
Awesome vacation! The home was very clean and comfortable. There is a lot more living space then suggested in the photos. The owners were very friendly and helpful with suggesting activities. Lots to do in the area. I would definitely recommend this home! WE LOVED IT!
