About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a newly built chalet (completed fall of 2011). Built, owned and managed by an area resident and custom homebuilder for more than 20 years.

Downstairs features a living room with gas/wood fireplace, a 55in HD internet TV and surround sound system with DVR. The dining room has a large table that can accommodate 8-12 people and the kitchen is modern and fully stocked. Granite countertops and stainless appliances (microwave, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, oven/stove, dishwasher and disposal). There are also two bedrooms (1 queen/2 singles), a full bathroom, a full size washer and dryer. Hardwood floors throughout.

It is an absolutely gorgeous view of the countryside when you look out the two-story wall of windows from the living room/dining room.

The second story of the chalet features two additional bedrooms (1 Queen/2 Singles) and another full size bathroom – this one with a jetted tub.

The front deck of the home is a two level, huge deck with a built-in gas grill. Plenty of space for outdoor eating and to relax and enjoy the beautiful views.

Communications – we’ve got you covered, with satellite TV and DVRs in the living room and two of the bedrooms. Broadband wireless internet is also provided.

This is a great house for families. A huge front lawn provides plenty of space for the kids/games.

The driveway to the house is a half mile long from the road. There is plenty of room for off road parking – for RVs, trailers, and snowmobiles.

The world famous Chautauqua Institution is only a mile away. Boat launch at Prendergast is also approximately 1.5 miles away.

We are centrally located between Peek n Peak and Holiday Valley. Both are great ski resorts. The home is also very close to Chautauqua Lake Snowmobile trails.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a family ski trip. Just a killer property and very scenic and well appointed. The fire place alone is worth it. The driveway is very long and we actually got stuck during a blizzard. Chris came and pulled us out and did so with a smile. Do yourself a favor and book this place!

Great trip

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the chalet. The place was clean and ready for us when we arrived, and Chris made sure we had enough firewood for the entire weekend, which was good since we got the first snow of the season!

The location is fantastic; close to the lake, parks to hike in, breweries to check out, etc. But the house itself is secluded and private which is great for a quiet weekend so you don't have to worry about noise.

Overall great experience again, so I'm sure we'll be back!

Six of us stayed at the chalet for a girls' weekend in early November. What a wonderful place! The home and the property are gorgeous and well appointed. The inside of the home was spotless and toasty warm when we arrived. It had comfy beds, beautiful bathrooms, and a kitchen that I wish was my own. We even lucked out and still had some foliage for a beautiful view. This was by far our favorite of the places we've rented, and we hope to come back for our next reunion. There's lots to explore in the area and yummy restaurants nearby. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house on a lovely piece of property. The house is very clean and has everything you wound need in a rental home. Very cozy on a very rainy weekend. Nice kitchen and great bathrooms. We only got one short walk in, so we did not get to explore the woods and stream, but it did not matter since we were quite content to be indoors while the rain fell. Very close to the Chautauqua Institute making it easy to drive there for a brief visit. We would definitely stay at this property again. Owners were very accommodating and everything worked out perfectly.

Chris, your home is perfect. Horses for neighbors, away from town, and a clean, well maintained home is the exact remedy for a too -busy life. We've stayed at your chalet twice and my family would like to make this our annual vacation. Working with Laurie to book our stay is easy and she is very helpful. Thank you, Chris.

Beautiful secluded chalet

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend to celebrate my birthday, and this was the perfect getaway! We loved the property and the chalet is beautiful! Everyone was really happy with our choice and would return in a heartbeat. Chris is a friendly guy and replenished the firewood for us without even being asked. Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your hunting cabin with us!
