About Suzanne Falces
I am an Interior Designer and I built this, my dream home, in Shady Cove, OR., after several years of widowhood in Tiburon, Ca. The house was completed in 2011, and I have lived in the house since then. I would love you to share its beauty and functionality.
Suzanne Falces purchased this Chalet in 2011
Why Suzanne Falces chose Shady Cove
My late husband and I owned a vacation home in this area in the '90s, and traveled here frequently from the Bay Area before selling it to friends. When he passed away, I wanted to live in a quiet and beautiful setting in a small town with all of the necessities, and the spot where I built my house fitted this description. I had friends here, and the outdoor activities available also appealed to me. The opportunity to build this contemporary log home with so many great details was a wonderful challenge.
What makes this Chalet unique
The Main House has a wood-burning River Rock FP with rocks gathered from this property during excavation. It is a replica of the FP at Crater Lake Lodge. The back of the FP is in the Master BR and has a vent-free, catalytic gas FP. There is a Gourmet Kitchen, with Wolf and Subzero Appliances, Granite in countertops and splashes, Custom Lighting, on demand hot water, and many exquisite details. The house also has Custom Lighting throughout, Theater Room with 70' Flat Screen TV and Surround Sound in Loft above Great Room, and 2 additional Flat Screen TV's, in Master Bedroom and Living Room, Office, Reading Alcove, Bunk Room, W/D, AC, WiFi, and gorgeous hardwood floors.

Fabulous luxury home for Crater Lake access
Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay. The amenities are excellent, the entire property is immaculate and Suzanne shows great attention to detail to ensure a comfortable stay. One bit of hopefully useful feedback: the furniture in the family room and loft areas is not particularly comfortable, e.g. for movie watching. Both rooms would benefit tremendously from a large, deep, cozy (soft material) sofa. Also, we couldn’t figure out how to turn on the fireplace in the master bedroom, but that might have just been user error or our overlooking instructions. All in, though, we would definitely recommend this wonderful Shady Cove home to others!
Stunning House, Serene Location
This house is as stunning as the pictures suggest. The back deck was great to sit out on and watch the wildlife pass by. The summertime weather we experienced in Oregon was great. No humidity and no rain at all in 10 days. Shady Cove is a cute little town that takes about 3 minutes to drive through. However, there still seems to be everything you need within 15 minutes driving time. We rafted the Rogue River and visited Crater Lake twice (jumping in the first time...quite an experience). Great house, great location.
Extraordinary home for a family gathering!
We rented this home for my mother’s 80th birthday and thoroughly enjoyed the chef’s kitchen and beautifully decorated home. The views and landscaping make for perfect indoor / outdoor living experience! Thank you Suzanne!
Suzanne’s Log Lodge
Stayed here before. Once again, lovely house and great convenient location.
This is the second year our group has rented Bella Chalet and we intend to do so again. It is a very comfortable home that is warmly furnished and nicely decorated. The kitchen is to die for. It is large enough to accommodate 10 people ( a combination of couples and children) but comfortably only 5 grown fishermen, six in a pinch. Honestly, nothing comes close in the Shady Cove area.
Dear Robert: Thank you for your Review. I look forward to greeting your group next year. You always leave it in great condition.
All the comforts of home
Very nice home; it has everything you need. Comfortable beds, lots of room, spacious home, great views.
Dear Susan: It was my pleasure to have you and your family at Bella Chalet. Thank you for choosing my home. Best wishes to the Newlyweds.
