Hi, we are Helen & Dick and family (3 generations). We puchased this lot decades ago, had a cedar shell erected and have assisted tradesman complete the interior to our liking. It has been a great place for the extended family to gather since they are spread from Philly to North Carolina and this is a good central location. We have enjoyed watching the resort grow and add amenities (especially liked the additional ski slopes and golfing). This property was recently opened up to vacation rentals and look forward to sharing our home away from home.

Dart Alsmeyer purchased this chalet in 1976

This is a superbly located chalet on the mountain near the top for views and proximity to the ski slopes. The open floorplan with the greatroom and loft above keeps everybody in close proximity and great for gatherings. There are 2 secluded and somewhat quiet bedrooms at the front of the house for those so inclined to sleep away their time here (not recommended though).

The gingerbread exterior makes you feel like you are at a Swiss chalet and the theme is carried throughout.

WONDERFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We spent a few days over spring break at the house and really enjoyed it. Kids did the water park and had fun. The house has plenty of space for a family and a nice deck facing the woods. Beds were nice, house was clean. We would highly recommend the house and plan to come back again

GREAT MOUNTAIN RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
The owner, Dart was very pleasant to deal with. We waited until the last minute to book our long weekend plans and Dart was able to accommodate us with no problem. The location is terrific and close to everything. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary supplies, and then some. The beds we used were very comfortable. The house is little dated and dark in some areas, but you will not find a better value anywhere within the resort. We did have a minor problem during our stay (coffee maker was not working) and that was addressed promptly and satisfactorily. There is a nice fireplace (we did not use it) and there was plenty of wood available. The wi-fi worked well in all parts of the house. I can't speak for other carriers, but AT&T had a weak to non-existent signal in the house. I would recommend this properly without hesitation. If you are new to Massanutten, one of our favorite areas within the resort was the Family Adventure Park. It has some neat activities for the kids such as a ropes course with a kid-sized zip-line. There is also a ropes course/zip-line for the adults too!

GREAT FOR SPENDING TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
Our group of eight (plus one dog) was very happy with our long weekend at the chalet. The positive impression started well before we arrived, with Dart's helpful and flexible assistance. Even with a big group, we didn't feel crowded. There is a lot of space and the main floor has an open layout, with a well equipped kitchen, bar, big table, and chairs and sofas. The main room has a big window with great light on the dining room table. While the house isn't brand new by any stretch, it is really clean and well maintained.

Our favorite part was the house's large back deck, where we could enjoy the quiet surroundings. There is a big picnic table and small gas grill. It was closed in, so the dog could hang out there, too.

The house is conveniently located in a quiet strip of homes in the resort. There is a trail along the ridge, which you get to after a very steep hike. We also drove to Shenandoah and did some short hikes there.

All in all, we'd love to go back. The house was a great value and it was perfect for our group.

MY FAMILY AND I HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house and all the activities at the resort!! Listing is accurate and the property is well maintained. The owner is great to communicate with! I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family! If you are there on a Thursday in the summer, make sure you go to the bonfire at the ski lodge, it was great!!! Also, take the ski lift to the summit, the views are breathtaking!

ENJOYED MY STAY

  • 5 of 5
I loved my stay at this house and hope to come back again. It was just the right amount of space that was necessary and was the only property that was pet friendly at the time of my stay. I would recommend this property to my friends and family. The location was just right for all my family's recreational needs. Stores and restaurants were less than 20 minutes away. Deer passed through the area frequently but only kept to themselves, it was a really lovely sight. Loved it. :)

WISH I COULD GO BACK!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at Massanutten. After 2 weeks, the house had begun to feel like home. The owner was quick to address any questions and I would definitely recommend staying there. We had more than enough room and were just a short walk to miniature golf, go carts, pool, etc. The hikes in the Shenandoah National Park were beautiful. Do not miss Touch of Home Doughnuts if you are headed toward Harrisonburg. The Factory Antique Store 30 minutes away in Verona is also worth the trip. But it's enormous and you will need a lot if time and room in your car. The kids loved the water park too.
