Peaceful and Serene are the two words to describe the feelings once you enter the Chalet...We fell in love with it at first sight! It has beautiful countryside setting, water access, and enough interesting things to do in the area for exploration and entertaining. The house feels so airy and spacious that you'll also enjoy staying inside just doing nothing.
I had a large group of guys for a bachelor party. The rental was fantastic, the pictures do it no justice. Everyone was very happy with their stay and had a great time. Connie and David were great to work with.
We gathered a large group of friends together at the lake house and absolutely loved it! The house is big so everyone was able to have a bed. The kitchen, dining and living room are all large and open so everyone can gather for meals and to hang out. The deck is open right off the kitchen/dining room as well and there's a great side yard for lawn games with a fire pit. The rocky walk down to the lake could be tough for some but we didn't mind and having two canoes and fishing poles available for use was perfect. We'll definitely be back again!
We (5 couples and 2 singles in our late 20's) thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Chalet this summer. The property was easily accessible for our group, which traveled from Boston, NYC, Albany, and central Connecticut.
We utilized the two grills and fully-stocked kitchen, and ate each meal from the wrap-around deck that overlooks the lake. The first night, we were able to watch the meteor shower over the lake. The following night, we enjoyed an impressive lightning show from the huge window in the master bedroom. We also took full advantage of the canoes provided to us during our stay, and were able to enjoy a few relaxing hours out on Whaley Lake.
Overall, our group would highly recommend the Chalet for any group getaway. Connie was very helpful and accommodating, and the property more than suited our needs.
The Lake Chalet is everything the description says and more! The view from the deck is amazing, all the amenities are up to date and in good use. The Master Suite is gorgeous, and all other bedrooms provide ample space to comfortably sleep large groups. Baby gates, and a high chair were an added bonus for us since we had one small child with us. Would definitely stay here again!
Our stay was wonderful, our hosts were excellent and the house was absolutely lovely! We had a small cake and ice cream gathering on the deck to celebrate a high school graduation and the weather and view were stunning. The cutest thing was a little basket of children's books that allowed my 3 year old nephew to have his routine bed time story every night.
A dozen friends and I spent a weekend at this quaint home right on the lake. It was very spacious and comfortable. All amenities worked satisfactorily. The sleeping arrangements did not feel forced or crammed, yet comfortably slept all 12 people in a bed.
