The house was located within a few minutes walk to Stratton Village. Very comfortable and cozy. The hot tub was great! Mr Carmichael was delightful to deal with. Look forward to going again.
Thanks very much Adam! We're so glad you all enjoyed the house and do hope you'll be back sometime!

Great host great location
We had a fantastic stay with two other couples and two toddlers. The toddlers tended to want to play with everything with in reach, but David did a good job with child proofing. The house is a quick walk to town and Stratton village for restaurants and shopping, etc. We didn’t get the best ski conditions but still had a wonderful time. Come dance with the bear, highly recommended. Thanks!
Warm Home + Even Warmer Hospitality
Our family, and extended family, have been renting vacation homes for many years. Never, have we met a homeowner in the course of our stay. Chalet Bear Dance owners (David and Mary Alice) are what make this place special. First for their responsiveness in making arrangements, and then for the setup and care upon arrival; David makes it a point to personally welcome and walk-through new guests at check-in. We loved this extraordinary touch and it was very helpful in making us comfortable. Our stay was splendid -- Super Bowl Weekend -- with good skiing, weather and family all around. Our 6-year old loved it so much, he cried when had to leave.
Great Home, Highly Recommended
Impeccably maintained property conveniently located within easy walking distance to the Stratton Village and main base lodge. Owners are very helpful and responsive. Overall, a great place to stay and highly recommended. Strongly advise 4WD or AWD as local roads are plowed but can be somewhat steep and slick following snowfall.
Awesome, fun house for families & friends
The owners (David and Mary Alice) are wonderful and very detail orientated to make your stay as comfortable and informative as possible. Great house for kids and family. Perfectly located to base lodge or 2 mins drive to Sunbowl. Nothing to pack, but food. House is FULLY equipt. Highly recommended!
Thank you, Darren, for renting Chalet Bear Dance and for your wonderful report in spite of the much less than 5 star weekend weather. With the rain, we felt so badly for you and your group, but hopefully it was more fun being together in a house rather than a few hotel rooms. We hope you will come back to Stratton another time. Sincerely, Mary Alice and David Carmichael
Beautiful Home, Amazing Views, Clean and Cozy!
We had the best time staying at Chalet Bear Dance. The owners could not be more helpful and kind. The house was spotless, had everything we needed and was comfortable and cozy. I can't wait to stay here again!
