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.

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!

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The Chalet is picturesque. Sits on top of the hill with beautiful scenery ~ peaceful and relaxing.

In the mornings we were able to watch the deers walking across the grass.

The Chalet is very homey. The bedrooms are a good size and the kitchen is spacious and well supplied. Eight adults could more around without a problem.

The dollar game is a lot of fun. People really get into the game and have good clues.

Laurie and Chris were very accommodating. We Thank You for a wonderful weekend.

We hope to come back next year.

Thank You ~ Sue & Mike and friends

Incredible Chalet and Property!

  • 5 of 5

This Chalet is exactly what we needed! It is off the beaten track and on such a beautiful piece of property! The house is stunning and our favorite part was the peaceful view from the porch! The kitchen was well-stocked with items you may forget, the place was clean and you can tell a lot of love went into this place! All in all, we highly recommend!

A lovely house and setting

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is a perfect place to stay while visiting Chautauqua, exploring the area, or just chilling out. The house is gorgeous, beautifully designed and built, very clean, quiet and isolated yet near activities, and the surroundings are truly beautiful. Perfect for a small family or 4 adults.
