Overview

Edson Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

This is a one of a kind home and location. The home is a hand crafted, large diameter log home. It is 2 stories, with all the bedrooms on the second floor. It is completely equipped, with many upgrades. We are completely off grid with power coming from solar panels. We do have a back up generator for rainy days. The real feature of this property is its location. It is located in Alberta's boreal forest at the end of a dead end road, 15 kms from the nearest neighbor. Your privacy is assured. You can xcountry ski, ATV, snowmobile, hike, bike or view wildlife right from the front door. There is downhill skiing 20 minutes away. If you want to enjoy Canada's great out doors and stay in luxury, this is the place for you.

Beautiful setting, streams and rivers to fish in on the property , and yes we actually caught fish . Hopefully i will be able to rent it again this year !!

Have been renting similar properties for 10 years and was disappointed in the following:

inconveniences such as fridge in kitchen not working, portable dishwasher which makes kitchen unusable when running, heat improperly distributed through house (asked not to use furnace), no lock on front door, asked not to use amenities designed for 10 people because of generator issues, asked not to be outside when owner was walking dogs in afternoon (but no dogs allowed in cottage). Bathrooms in every bedroom, which was great, but not enough power to possibly use them all at that same time if needed, when 10 people sharing the house

Lots of seating in living area and satellite TV was good

Owner's Response: There were 2 working fridges in our home at the time these clients were here. A third was not working( waiting for parts )Yes we have a portable dishwasher that hooks to the sink. There are 3 working heat sources in the house to meet the needs of a house this size. We never ask our clients to not use the furnace, and go over operating instructions for the wood stove very carefully. Our home is in a true wilderness location and we are completely off grid. Our power comes from solar panels and a back up generator. We do not have unlimited power. Clients are advised of this at time of booking and requirements are explained on arrival. It is made clear that you can not have ever light in the house on at the same time as the dish washer, hair dryers, Jacuzzis, TV's and other appliances. If this happens, it will crash our system. Most people get this, a few do not. In 12 years there has only been several times where this has happened. We do have a large pack of working dogs and for 30 minutes a day, we ask to be able to walk our dogs. This only a concern in the winter when snow conditions are heavy and we must use the road that passes the rental house. This was explained and agreed to by these people. In my experience I can only try to please everyone all the time.
