Perfect place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I went to Chalet Bon Chance with a group of friends for our annual snow trip and we all had a great time. The home owner was very accommodating and helpful during the weeks and days leading up to the stay. Everything was all set and ready to go for us by the time we got there. When we first arrived, we set our things down and sat out back on the patio taking in the great weather and amazing view. The view from the back balcony was understated in the descriptions of the house, it was absolutely beautiful. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. Thanks!

Beautiful Confortable Home with Stunning Views & Great Amentites

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Chalet Bon Chance. The house was even more beautiful than the pictures. It was very spacious and had everything we needed there. The kitchen was fully stocked and even had condiments and spices available for our use. The bathrooms also came with toiletries and plenty of supplies. Mary the owner was always super quick to reply to my emails and provided all the info we needed upon arrival. This place was so comfy and the views on the deck were just stunning. The neighborhood was quiet and a short drive into town/skiing. Our group had a wonderful time and we hope to go back soon!

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the owner was very responsive and helpful in every way. The property was very clean and spacious. The view was awesome as well. One thing I love is how fast and hot the water got every time we used it! I would definitely rent it again.

Excellent Owners

  • 4 of 5

The location and the layout of the house were excellent. We had three families and it was very comfortable. There were a few hiccups during the stay but the owners were the nicest most accommodating people I have dealt with when renting a property. The Jacuzzi is on the top floor above the foyer. Not a great design. It leaked down in to the foyer both days and we spent a good deal of time trying to find the leak and cleaning up the dripping water but the owners were very responsive to our issues. If the Jacuzzi issue gets worked out, I would rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for your patience and help with the hot tub and the garage. The garage door is fixed. The hot tub is being worked on this week. You were great renters, and we will keep you posted about progress on the hot tub. Glad you liked the house, despite the problems, and hope you will return.

Our new home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I first booked this home it has been a wonderful experience . The owners are kind, quick to reply, and go above and beyond to make the trip special. I have never had such a good experience !

The home is beautiful, warm and the view is spectacular. There was not one thing I would improve on my experience or on this home. We are already planning our next trip there :) Thank you for starting our New Year out in such a happy way!

Great Spot with an awesome view

  • 5 of 5

The house is comfortable and has a gorgeous view of the ski slopes from all levels. An outdoor deck runs along the house on each level too.

We used the fireplace and everything else worked very well.

We enjoyed using the hot tub and played some pool too.

It's a relaxing spot and spacious. We'd love to come back.
