                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1980

                      Why the Owner Chose Ace:
                      My late husband and I fell in love with the area while visiting friends who owned weekend houses there and, in 1980, we had the shell of the house built . With the help of wonderful friends, we worked weekends building out the interior. The project took about a year to complete and I have many great memories of those times. The chalet became our escape from the hectic weekly pace in Houston. We put heart and soul into building out the chalet! When my husband passed away in 1993, the only way I could rationalize keeping the property was to rent it out to vacationers. I've had the good fortune of meeting so many wonderful people who have rented from me since that time and look forward to being blessed with many more!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      Serenity Now!! ;) I feel the stress of every day life and all my cares drift away immediately while driving down the winding road to the property. Taking in God's incredible creation of nature all around is icing on the cake while cooking in my delightful little kitchen with its great view of the lake, fishing, lounging around reading or playing games...just completely relaxing in the quiet and beautiful atmosphere of Taylor Lake! When I get there, I never want to leave!
