Our family, and extended family, have been renting vacation homes for many years. Never, have we met a homeowner in the course of our stay. Chalet Bear Dance owners (David and Mary Alice) are what make this place special. First for their responsiveness in making arrangements, and then for the setup and care upon arrival; David makes it a point to personally welcome and walk-through new guests at check-in. We loved this extraordinary touch and it was very helpful in making us comfortable. Our stay was splendid -- Super Bowl Weekend -- with good skiing, weather and family all around. Our 6-year old loved it so much, he cried when had to leave.
Impeccably maintained property conveniently located within easy walking distance to the Stratton Village and main base lodge. Owners are very helpful and responsive. Overall, a great place to stay and highly recommended. Strongly advise 4WD or AWD as local roads are plowed but can be somewhat steep and slick following snowfall.
The owners (David and Mary Alice) are wonderful and very detail orientated to make your stay as comfortable and informative as possible. Great house for kids and family. Perfectly located to base lodge or 2 mins drive to Sunbowl. Nothing to pack, but food. House is FULLY equipt. Highly recommended!
We had the best time staying at Chalet Bear Dance. The owners could not be more helpful and kind. The house was spotless, had everything we needed and was comfortable and cozy. I can't wait to stay here again!
This house is beautiful! The location, the ambiance and the setting makes for a perfect ski getaway. After staying here, you won't want to leave!
The house is located at the base of the mountain, making it super easy to walk right up to the lift and Stratton Village. After being on the slopes, it was great coming back to the hot tub. We also thoroughly enjoyed the fireplace - so much that the only time we didn't have a fire going was when we were skiing.
We had a group of 8 and the house was nice and cozy, yet everyone had their own space since the bedrooms are spread out on different floors. The owners of the property are lovely! They were so helpful and took the time to meet us at the house and show us the ins and outs.
We can see why guests come back to Chalet Bear Dance and we will probably end up on that list. We are already planning a trip to come back next year!
This lovely ski chalet is located directly across the street from the Stratton Ski Resort. It's a short hike to slopeside and Stratton village. My suggestion is to drop your ski gear off slopeside at the overnight ski check and pick it up prior to boarding the lifts or gondola the following day.
This retro home is large with light filled windows on the main level. Overall the home is very clean with superior white towels and crisp pressed bed linens. the beds and pillows were cozy for a good nights sleep. I was impressed to learn the hottub was cleaned and refilled upon each new visitors stay.
We enjoyed a group dinner at the large dining table and quiet nights by the fireplace. A great time was had by all. The owners were very kind, friendly and accommodating. We hope to return again soon!
