Hale Chalet '2' is a beautiful 4 yr old home with 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, large kitchen with stainless appliances, large living/dining area with seating for 8+. The south end of the walk-out basement has 2 more bedrooms, a full bath, and large living room. The home sits on 6 private, partially wooded acres, yet very close to town. There is a beautiful large back yard complete with swing set, hot tub, and fire pit. The home is close to everything Southern Illinois has to offer.

NO bachelor parties allowed. This is a family home and should be treated as such.

The home has 6 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths. It has a 6 person hot tub, large deck complete with grill and patio furniture.

Located just 5 minutes from SIU and less than one mile from super Wal-Mart, you will find anything you are looking for within a very short drive. We have a wide variety of restuarants and attractions within 5 miles. The home is located just 3 miles west of Carbondale.

Hale Chalet '2' can sleep up to 12 people in beds upstairs, 18 with the basement option added. You are welcome to bring sleeping bags or air mattresses if you like. There is plenty of room. Our maximum occupancy is 20.

Master bedroom has two queen beds. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, 4th bedroom has a king size bed. Bedroom #3 has two full size beds. Basement bedroom #1 has a queen and a full size bed, the other basement bedroom has a queen size bed. There is also a futon in the basement, and one in the upstairs living room. The wide open living spaces both upstairs and downstairs are perfect for large gatherings. Plenty of parking for lots of vehicles, boats, trailers, etc.

Stocked pond available for catch and release fishing, no swimming please.

Xbox 360 system and several games set up and ready for the kids in the upstairs kids bedroom.

Our home is quiet and secluded yet close to all the main attractions. The home is large and spacious and includes hardwood, tile and carpeted floors in bedrooms only.

We hope to see you soon!
