  • Our stay at the Apple’s Chalet


    Our family’s stay at Apple’s chalet was amazing. It is one of the cleanest vacation rental I have ever stayed at. We had a wonderful time. All 5 of us fit comfortably. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Wonderful little cabin


    Apple's Chalet was a wonder place for us to stay for my wife's birthday. She wanted snow and she got it! We absolutely loved the charm, and really appreciated that everything was labeled. Lots of blankets for cold weather and all the floors heated up nicely. Plenty of room for the kids and adults to spread out. We asked for an extra day because of the snow and they even snow plowed the driveway so we could get out once it's stopped snowing. We want to come back in the spring or summer!

  • Great Property


    The property is as pictured and very clean. The back yard is fenced to keep your dogs safe. The host has thought of everything. We will look for this property again on our next trip.

  • Clean and nice house near the Sly lake


    Loved the property. Only thing that prevented five star is noise from the Sly Park Road. It gets quite noisy when bikes and trucks pass by. The property is located right next to the road.

  • Very clean sweet house


    Cute cabin home. Very clean which I appreciate. Good communication from the host. Nice outdoor area great for dogs. Unfortunately no fire pit (not even a gas one) although I thought the photos showed one. wish they had a hot tube outside (:

    There’s a great tube inside for relaxing though.

    Honestly was not a fan of the reservoir, very busy and not the cleanest water. But that’s not related to the house just the general area.

    It is right on the corner of a pretty busy road. because it’s on a hill, when you sit outside you sometimes can’t hear what the other person is saying because the vehicles are so loud. Bring gear plugs for sleeping if you’re sensitive.

    Nice for a family for sure, not ideal for two couples because the upstairs doesn’t have a door and the living room doesn’t have a nice big couch .

    Over all had a wonderful stay and enjoyed dinners and breakfast on the patio.
