Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jennifer,

We had a great time this weekend at your Alpine Lake Chalet! What a beautiful place and it is so peaceful. The kids made use of the tennis courts, basketball, and the game room at the lodge. We had a picnic at the beach and the younger ones enjoyed the water and sand. We all did a little fishing, hiking and enjoyed the pool table and games at your place. The guys played a round of golf. It was just so enjoyable sitting on the deck and watching the golfers go by. Thank you for providing us with such a nice place to get away for the weekend!

My Best,

Spacious and very enjoyable cabin

  • 5 of 5

The sheer amount of space made this a great destination for a friend's birthday. It was a little dusty when we got there, but was still fantastic. The multiple rooms and tables made it easy for groups to split up and do different activities/play different games. I love the inclusion of the pool and gym, as it allowed many of the guests to maintain their fitness while at the cabin. The countryside was beautiful and delightful. The lake was so nice to run along!

If I had one, my biggest complaint would be that the WiFi was spotty. Beyond that it was a delightful cabin.

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

So firstly, I had never used VRBO before. I was two weeks away from my 41st birthday and wanted to rent someplace quiet and peaceful to relax. My buddy and I arrived and were completely blown away by how HUGE this place was! From the picture of the exterior, it is easy to assume that the chalet is comprised of two separate living spaces---but no. YOU GET THE WHOLE THING!

The interior is just as difficult to believe as the exterior: multiple fireplaces, pool table, an immaculate kitchen, a cozy nook for reading, a wall-mounted flatscreen downstairs and upstairs, more than enough cords of wood, and a balcony that runs around most of the interior. The chalet was clean, well-maintained, and had many of the amenities you might be tempted to bring on your own (no need)! At night the fireplace supplies all the warmth you could ever want, and gives a majestic glow to the interior spaces. There is also a great circular couch to one end of the upstairs - perfect for reading or just lazing!

I can't tell you how comfortable and perfect this place was. But the beauty of the chalet was matched only by the patience and responsiveness of the renters. Most times they responded to even the most inane of my questions as a first time renter with care and alacrity - most times within a few minutes to an hour. Best of all, they were flexible with me, and willing to make reasonable accommodations.

I returned home fully relaxed! If you want to have a nice time removed from the smog and noise pollution of the city in a beautiful "home away from home", this place is for you - and I would totally rent here again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful home in a pretty setting

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent home for our family Christmas get together. The home had so many bathrooms, we never had to fight for one. Loved it. The landlord was very attentive to needs before and during the stay. Even when the stove stopped working, someone was there within an hour and an eventual replacement was brought in the next day.

Great house very nice stay.

The house was very dusty

  • 1 of 5

The house was very dusty we couldn't even make our last day, paid for 3 night but stayed 2 night. The kitchen appliances were sticky. We thought the house hasn't been cleaned for more than a month because you can see too many cobweb in the house, everywhere.

They also forgot to put some toilet paper and hand soap!! Only one of the bathrooms had them. We stayed there during Christmas so it was very hard to find an open place to get toilet paper and hand soap!! If the house won't be taken care of before the holidays for gests, then it shouldn't be rented.

Our rental agreement states "CANCELLATIONS – A 60 day notice is required for cancellation. Cancellations or changes that result in a shortened stay that are made within 60 days of the arrival date, forfeit the full reservation deposit. Early departure does not warrant any refund of rent or deposit." We offered you our on call maintenance and house keeping. Your home was inspected the morning prior to your arrival and all was clean. Please be more considerate in the future.

Great home for a large gathering!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of days over Thanksgiving. The owner was very responsive to our initial issue with the heating system and getting the gas fireplace going, and a repairman was at the house soon after we called (the night before Thanksgiving!). The house provides plenty of space to gather for an extended family or group. The Thanksgiving meal at the lodge was awesome, and the new pool and work out facilities look very nice. We would stay here again.

Great experience. Very roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th year in a row that a group of 8 stayed at Chalet 3. It provides plenty of room, is right on the golf course, and has all the amenities we are looking for.
