  • Our new favorite vacation rental


    Awesome close up views of Ski Brule Mountain from the deck and front windows. Tall rock fireplace that kept the chalet warm and cozy. Two bedrooms and the loft with more beds offered plenty of room for the whole family to stretch out. Everything you need is provided, right down to a pizza cutter.

    Besides the recreational opportunities offered right across the street at Ski Brule, we learned there is a ton of year round fun things to do in the area. Even just hiking through the quaint village st Ski Brule and the woods around was beautiful. We also discovered a shrine to the Mother Mary with two angels nestled in some beautiful moss rock outcroppings in the side yard of the property. This was a bonus for us at the start of Holy Week.

    We do stay in a number of vacation rentals during the year and we will be back here again this summer. There is something very special about this place, the setting, combined with the vintage chalet was perfect.

  • Awesome chalet and perfect location!


    We loved this chalet, the location and area are perfect for outdoor adventure year round. Even with our kids, this chalet is an easy walk to the ski lift at Ski Brule Mountain. We plan to stay here again for our summer vacation so we can explore the many near by lakes and waterfalls. Communication with our host was great. The beds and furniture were cozy and comfortable. We found the place clean and tidy. There was even a sweet welcome basket waiting for us when we arrived. Our best recommendation!

  • Missed the mark


    The location is great and communication was really good. They even gotbus in a little early but that is still overshadowed by the terribly uncomfortable furniture in the entire place as well as well as several concerns with cleaning, we had cobwebs in the bathroom and dirt around the tub and dirty foil on the stovetop etc. The entire place needs updates. For the amound we paid for three nights I would still expect more. We have stayed in a lot of vrbo places over the years and never been this disappointed.

  • Great ski weekend lodging!


    We had a great weekend at this cabin, which is right across the street from Ski Brule. It was the perfect space for our group, which included adults and children. We were able to easily get to and from the hill both days we skied and enjoyed après ski at the cabin as well as homemade dinners and breakfast. The communications with the property manager were super simple, who was very welcoming and accommodating.

  • Disappointed Kids!!


    I don't typically write reviews but this property warrants comments for future renters!!

    Our first impression was definitely unsatisfactory! Unclean bathrooms, cobwebs, overabundance of live beetles, and hearing little rodents in the walls and ceilings. Lacked basics like garbage bags, sufficient tissues, and sufficient toilet paper. Garbage dumpster outside was overflowing already when we arrived. The renters in the other duplex said they had a dead bird and dead chipmunk.

    Unfortunately, when I emailed the property owner within hours of arrival about the lack of basic supplies, he never responded.

    This rental is severely in need of upgrades. Looks like 70s carpet and thin paneling on walls and ceiling. The great location and sauna were horribly overshadowed by the lack of care for this property. Truly disappointing for our kids since this adventure was part of their Christmas gift.

    Hi Adrienne, we're sorry to hear that your stay didn't meet your expectations. We reached out to the homeowner to address your concerns. They wanted to share the following information:
    - Our cleaning partner takes great pride in ensuring the rental is impeccably clean and fully stocked before each guest's arrival.
    - Any reports of dead critters in the unit are taken very seriously. After a thorough inspection, it appears that the evidence you mentioned didn't originate from your stay with us. Our guests can rest assured that had there been an issue, we would have promptly resolved it.
    - Unfortunately, we didn't receive any emails from you during your stay. We wish you had called us if you hadn't heard back, as we are more than willing to assist.
    - Regarding the presence of ladybugs, it's a rare occurrence that happens about once every century. Although it's something outside our control, we make every effort to maintain a pest-free environment within the unit.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your review with us.
