Murphy Chalet Rental Photos and Description
Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
Relax on a large deck (with a complementary bottle of wine) and enjoy the fantastic views of the Nottley River and distant mountain peaks. New in April 2005, Cedar Chalet on paved, dead-end road that offers privacy, peace and quiet. Property goes down to the Nottley River 200 feet below the Chalet. The river is great for trout fishing and we have just installed steps all the way to the river. From the deck you have a year around view of distant mountain peaks. At sunset we have seen several Canadian Geese, deer, and turkeys come out or land in a large field across the river.
All bedrooms have a view of the river with a large sliding glass door in the master bedroom (King bed) that lead onto the deck. The upstairs bedroom (king bed) has its own private deck. The large family room has wall-to-wall glass windows and sliding glass doors that provide a fantastic view without going outside. A stone rock fireplace with gas log is at one end of this room. The dining table can be extended for seating six and two bar stools provide additional seating on the back side of the cabinets.
The Chalet has almost 2300 sq.ft. The basement has a bedroom (double bed) a bathroom, a sitting area with gas log fireplace, a sofa bed a card/game table and a full size pool table and TV. Two single roll-away beds are also available in the basement. A double glass door opens onto the lower deck with a swing. A six person Hot Tub is on this deck with a great view of the river. Thirty feet below lower deck is a fire pit with panaromic view view of river. A sun deck is 20 feet below the fire pit.
