My late husband and I fell in love with the area while visiting friends who owned weekend houses there and, in 1980, we had the shell of the house built. With the help of wonderful friends, we worked weekends building out the interior. The project took about a year to complete and I have so many great memories of those times. The chalet became our escape from the hectic weekly pace in Houston. We put heart and soul into building out the chalet! When my husband passed away in 1993, the only way I could rationalize keeping the property was to rent it out to vacationers. I've had the good fortune of meeting so many wonderful people who have rented from me since that time and look forward to being blessed with many more!
Patricia Vackar purchased this chalet in 1980

Serenity Now!!!! ;) feel the stress of every day life and all your cares drift away immediately just driving down the winding road to the property. Taking in God's incredible creation of nature all around is icing on the cake while cooking in the delightful little kitchen with its great view of the lake, or fishing, lounging around, reading, playing games, sitting in the swing, observing nature, taking a stroll, napping...just completely relaxing in the quiet beauty of the atmosphere of Taylor Lake! When I arrive, I never want to leave!
The chalet and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful! Had a wonderful time just sitting in different locations around the house & deck, enjoying God's masterpiece. We went out on the boat & got a good ab workout laughing so hard because 3 women couldn't row a boat and we were not confident about working the trolling motor. But we figured it out quickly & were pros in no time! Thanks for allowing others to enjoy your "cozy slice of Heaven"!
You will not be disappointed with this darling place! The pictures do not do it justice. It's decorated very cute and is situated in a private section of the lake - very peaceful and quiet. Patricia went way over and beyond ensuring we had all we needed. I have honestly never seen a rental so clean! We actually did see 1 alligator crossing the lake, which was pretty cool. The large yard is fenced in perfectly which is nice for the dogs. We will definitely be back. I highly recommend this chalet and want to personally thank Patricia for being so wonderful.
Very relaxing, clean, love the view. Fishing was excellent. I would recommend this place to everyone. If God is willing my husband and I will return this Christmas again..Best place ever..
Only an hour drive from The Woodlands , Tx with vey little traffic! Such a peaceful, relaxing little lake. The nature and wild life made it a perfect escape from the city! The use of the little boat was such a special bonus to the rental! We hope to visit again soon!
We stayed at this charming chateau over the 4th of July week end and it was GREAT. The fishing could have been better but the place was fantastic, it really is a cozy slice of heaven. The owner Patricia, was simply a joy to deal with and everything is as it is stated. The house is fully equipped with everything you might you need and very clean. I would recommend to bring some wasp spray, they seem to enjoy the place also. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking to get away from it all and just relax and enjoy nature. Thank you Patricia for allowing us the opportunity to share your cozy slice of heaven, we greatly appreciate it.
We stayed for 5 days and had a great time. The lake was relaxing, and there was plenty of shade in the front yard to escape the afternoon sun. The house was equipped and supplied just as in the description on the web page, there was plenty of wood for the smoker/grill, and all of the appliances and electronics worked perfectly. The property was spotless and ready for us to move in. Thanks, Patricia. We'll be renting again in the not-so-distant future.
We are from upper Michigan and found the Chalet in Ace, TX as the perfect get-away for us. Having left behind the cold winter in Michigan, delighted in the warm weather and the blooming of spring time in Ace. The most relaxing time was sitting on the deck and taking in the wild life abounding before us including birds, turtles, alligators and an a lake full of fish. We found it to be a quiet, private retreat but not far from local shopping and restaurants and just 45 minutes from Houston and all the attractions that city offers. The Chalet is in need of some updating which was in the planning while we were there. The Chalet offers a beautiful view right on the lake, is comfortable and has all the amenities.
