Amazing Views Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible, the owner Mary was extremely helpful and engaging, checking on our progress making sure we arrived and was able to find the house. There was 10 of us and we had room enough for everyone to spread out and not be too on top of each other. We had no problems at all during our stay all systems were working perfectly and despite the cold white out outside it was very warm inside. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone with a large group or family looking for a mountain getaway.

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.
