Great location and property

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. Any issues that showed up were immediately addressed by Krisha. We had a group of about 17 people and had lots of room. Our stay did include lots of rain so we didn't get to enjoy the deck or the yard. We really liked the location, Carbondale was just 5 minutes away and there is a Walmart 2 minutes away! Thanks!

We had a wonderful stay with lots of family for my son's wedding. The bedrooms were comfortable, bathrooms clean and the kitchen well equipped. The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable. There is a deck that wraps around for outside relaxing. We did not use the hot tub in August heat, but it was conveniently located out French doors. The house is close to local restaurants and stores but still private and quiet. We will definitely stay there again!

A few problems, but overall good stay

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good stay. Rooms were sufficient for our group, kitchen was sizeable, property was great, appliances all worked. Only complaints our group had about the amenities would be the need for more trash cans, both inside and out and the need for an additional refrigerator. We had 12 adults and the fridge was absolutely packed. I would suggest another downstairs in the basement. The Walmart was super close and very convenient. We went to Little Grassy Lake and rented a boat for the day and that was great.

Now the bad. On our last full day at the house we woke up to an awful sewage smell. After calling the owners they directed us to pop an exterior vent. They said it happens quite often and knew exactly what we needed to do. After popping the vent and letting the house air out for a few hours it was fine. Then while cooking dinner all the power went out. The owners came out and again said it has been happening a lot lately. After some diagnosis, the problem was fixed. Then about an hour later it happened again. Luckily one of our party watched how they fixed it the first time and was able to go out and fix it. The owners did show concern and got right on both issues. I kind of hate posting anything about it due to their dilligence in fixing the issues, I did however, want to be truthful so that others knew about the seemingly ongoing issues. Had we not had the 2 issues I would have given it 5 stars!

Great place for a reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place!! Very nice home, plenty of room and something for everyone. It was better than the pictures and exceeded our expectations. We had a family reunion here and it was the perfect place. Many of us had never gone fishing so this allowed us the experience...and we actually caught some fish! We really enjoyed ourselves. Big plus that Walmart is right around the corner. I would definitely recommend the property to friends, relatives and others!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay at Hale Chalet '2' and once again the house served us very well! If and when I return to Carbondale again and I need a place to call home for a short time I will once again return to the chalet if it is available.

Great place to stay for a large group

  • 5 of 5

I really liked this place. It was very spacious and nice. When I first got there I was wondering where the house would end, very good for large groups of people. It has an enormous deck that was great for hanging out on at night. I really appreciated all the towels that are stocked there for the hot tub, which we also really enjoyed. I really don't have any complaints about the actual property, it was great, but a few comments on the rules. I was a little nervous about the big rule book on the counter and how there would be deductions on your deposit for so many miscellaneous items. We did a thorough cleaning of the place when we left, and did get our full deposit back. Just a bit nit picky about things like, a $50 charge for any furniture that was moved. I was nervous when I left because I didn't remember the exact spot all the furniture was in when we got there. But it was all fine. Maybe it's just a scare tactic so slobs don't ruin the nice property.
