RELAXING, COZY GET AWAY!

  • 4 of 5
I've stayed at this property several times and found it to be very cozy, rustic and relaxing. If you are a skier (which I am not) it is very conveniently located. My reason for going is to get away from it all and relax. The pool is very close ( a five minute walk away) and is always clean with hardly anyone ever there. It is nice that there are 2 full bathrooms if you have a house full. I've always rented during the winter, but would one day like to rent it during the fall to enjoy the foliage.

GREAT GET AWAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY!

  • 4 of 5
When I first found this chalet on HomeAway, I wasn't sure what to think. The pictures don't do it a whole lot of justice. Then put that together with the negative review it was battered with, I could see how most would overlook this gem of a rental located right in the middle of Mt. Snow and Stratton Mt.

We arrived on New Years Eve delighted to find a spacious driveway, which had been plowed quite well considering the amount snow on the ground. We only had 2 cars in our party, but the driveway could hold 4 to 5 cars with no problem. Once out of our truck we walked up the small set of stairs to the porch and entry door area. On the side of the house on the deck you will find 3 large garbage cans for all your trash located under the roof. On the other side of the deck, you will find a few nice chairs along with a table to sit outside and enjoy all the site has to offer. When walking into the Chalet you will walk through a storm door into a small room that has some shelves on one side and plastic bins for recyclables. Once we entered the Chalet, we were in the main room and instantly were happy we came!

The main living room area is warm and cozy with an easy to use wood burning stove, which has plenty of wood in a fully enclosed wood bin right in the corner of the room. It even has a 'wood room' down stairs to ensure you that not only is your wood dry, but easier to refill the bin when necessary for your stay without having to go out in the cold. The Living area has an 'L' shaped couch with a big square coffee table. Giant loft upstairs with 2 small full sized beds. (as described by the owner in his rebuttal) The downstairs has 3 bedrooms. 1 has a full size bed, and the other 2 have two full size beds in each. (bunk bed style) The interior is all wood and has no moldy odor like what was said by the other review. I was nervous in reading that but decided to give it a try after talking with the home owner. Everyone in our party couldn't have been happier with the decision in staying at this Chalet. We were able to bring our well behaved dog with us, which made our stay even better to have all our friends and family with us to bring in the New Year. If you're looking for "The Ritz" style housing, then this is not for you. BUT..If you're looking for a great get away for an amazing price, then this is the one you have been looking for!

In short, It was great. We will be return renters!
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!! Our pup cant wait to go back!

MISREPRESENTATION AND UNKEPT, DIRTY CONDITIONS!

  • 1 of 5
Upon arrival we reamined in this rental approximately 15 minutes befored being forced to leave due to overwhelming, noxious moldy odor, insect (flea) bites and filth!

The cabin had obvious not been cleaned in a very long time. Bathroom sinks had harden toothpaste spit, toilets were dirty, moldy food in refrigerator. Dirty towels were lying on the bathroom floor and there was garbage and waste in all the trash cans. Floor were dirty and sticky and the "Shag" carpet in the basement was hardened and matted and had not appeared to had seen a vacumm in years.
Mattresses and boxspring sitting on the floors, hatchets and work gloves on the kitchen counters, entranceway appeared to be the storage area for empty beer bottles.

We contacted the owner immediately upon leaving. He initially appeared genuinely concerned and understanding of the situation. Stated he was aware of the mold and that the dehumidifier needed to be turned on in the basement. The owner graciously offered to refund our full rental fee - obviously knowing the unacceptable living standard his cabin was in.

Subsequently the owner changed his mind stating the caretaker felt the odor was "stale" air and the cabin was up to standard. We did not recieve any refund at all!!!

So if you have really substandard expectations of cleanliness and would like to rent a place with an unhealthy mold issue from an owner who really has no pride of ownership or sense of personal accoutability, this is the place for you.

This place did not even meet minimal standards of up keep or cleanliness to ethically be advertising to rent

Owner's Response: I received the call from the renter and promised her that if the chalet was not in good order, I would refund her. I had my caretaker check the place Mon., May 7. He reported that there was no "moldy" smell, but the house had been closed for a while. It's a log home and the smell comes from the pine logs. He found no "fleas" or any sign of vermin anywhere in the house. The entire house is protected by an ultrasound system that excludes any possibility of infestation.
I went to the chalet the following weekend. The "moldy food in the refrigerator" was a half gallon container with about 2 oz. of juice in it. It had been pushed to the back and was overlooked by my cleaning service. The rest of the food were condiments and were ok .
The "dirty towel" was a bath mat in front of the shower to prevent falling accidents. The "toothpaste" in the sink is a porcelain repair substance that has pluggeg a chip in the bowl for 20 years. It's still working fine.
The carpets were vacuumed before her arrival. The "sticky floors" are coated with an epoxy resin which leaves a very shiny and durable finish without being slippery. It is a standard (OSHA) product for industrial buildings.
The "mattresses and box springs on the floor' are in the loft, where headroom is an issue. In fact, they are on very low custom made frames.
The work gloves and tools are next to the wood stove, where they are used to tend the fire.
The bottles in the entryway were there to be recycled, along with two trash containers also with empties-VT recycles.
I found a paper towel in the kitchen trash container.
I have rented for 35 years, with many return clients. This is the FIRST complaint I have received.
