THE SWISS CHALET AND THE GYM GUEST HOUSE

The Swiss Chalet and The Gym Guest House combine to make one of the most unique vacation experiences you’ll ever enjoy! The authentic Swiss Chalet is a handcrafted “squared log” cabin that features 3 Bedrooms and 2 Loft areas with sleeping for 12. The Gym Guest House, which is situated just across the courtyard, has a full NBA half court gym, along with 4 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Gym sleeps 8 comfortably for a total of 20 guests between the two cabins.

The cabins are nestled at the top of 30 pristine acres just 6 miles East of Cle Elum. The Chalet is Swiss designed, Austrian built, with European hardware & fixtures. The Chalet features a huge stone gas fireplace, and antique styled kitchen appliances! Modern era features include WiFi Internet, a 60" Flatscreen with DVD/Satellite, Air Conditioning for those warm summer days, and Radiant Floor Heating!

The Chalet and The Gym are very comfortable for a large or extended family looking for a unique retreat. The Chalet features 3 bedrooms, 2 loft areas, and 3 bathrooms. There is a King bedroom on the main floor; a Queen bedroom on the 2nd floor, and a Queen bedroom in the basement. The loft area outside the queen bedroom upstairs has a Queen bed & Twin bed. The second loft area has 2 twin beds. (Sleeps 12) In the Guest House you’ll enjoy 4 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each with two shower stalls. There is a King bedroom and 3 Queen Bedrooms. (Sleeps 8)

The centerpiece of The Chalet is the huge stone gas fireplace in the great room. Spend time relaxing around the fire in the comfortable leather furniture while gazing upon the hand carved wood paneling that rings the upper floor lofts. The dining area contains 2 tables that slide together for seating 12 very comfortably. The full kitchen is well stocked and has every appliance you should need to make fantastic family dinners. For summer picnics outside there are folding tables and chairs in the garage of The Guest House.

The Gym Guest House boasts 3 Glass Basketball hoops of which 2 are adjustable down to 8 ft. You can easily convert the gym from a Basketball setup to Volleyball or Badminton within minutes! The kids will also enjoy the ping pong table in the Gym annex, and the free WiFi Internet. (Note: Sleeping is not permitted on the gym floor or gym Mezzanine, and the Gym Guest House does not have AC)

This is a fantastic venue for kid focused extended families that enjoy basketball, volleyball, badminton, hiking, XC skiing, and wildlife viewing. Deer, Elk, and Wild Turkeys call this area home. Take a 25 min drive from the cabins to Speelyi Beach on Lake Cle Elum and enjoy all the summer time activities at the lake!

This unique destination is available year round, but expect compact snow and ice on the roadway during the winter. The last mile or so to the cabin is a gravel/dirt road. There are sloped areas on the property where the kids and young adults can enjoy sledding!

Occupancy of the Chalet is limited to one family, with family being a number of related individuals, or up to five unrelated individuals. Family gatherings up to 20 are permitted as long as everyone is related and from the same family. Please call for clarification of this.

(The property's grounds are protected by an external security video monitoring system and there are property caretakers that live below the Gym Guest House, but they do not share any common space with rental guests.)

Reviewer Comments:

We were very pleased with our stay at the Swiss Chalet and Gym House. Property description was accurate, except we didn't have a lot of information on the Gym House beforehand and wished we knew to bring a set of clean gym shoes (we all just ended up using it barefoot). Loved the ample rooms and beds galore for our five individual families, while still having great group space to play and entertain all together. House was clean and in good condition. We sure wished there was A/C in that gym house since it was in the upper 90's during our visit, but the evenings were manageable with the windows open. We were pleasantly surprised how well the gym was stocked with balls, mats and cones. The play space for kids was well-used and cozy for our younger group. Not many complaints other than some of the beds being a bit uncomfortable (a pillowtop could make the world of difference on some of the big beds). The king bed in the Gym house was lacking a mattress pad, which we didn't see until we stripped the bed when we left and gave me the heeby geebies. Owner may also want to consider a nice big floor mat when you walk into the gym house. We tried to sweep and mop to keep it clean as our group went in and out, but a mat would have alleviated some of that dust and mess. Great customer service from the management company - they were responsive to our questions throughout our stay. We stayed for four days and enjoyed horseback riding at the Flying Horseshoe Ranch down the road, an afternoon on Lake Cle Elum and a hike up in the National Forest. Love this quiet location that feels super secluded but not too far from town and a quick hop from Seattle. We want to come back and enjoy the house in the winter season with snow! Would definitely recommend the property for friends and family reunion groups. A good bang for your buck!

Owner's Response: Hi Charise, Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts on The Swiss Chalet and Gym Guest House. You definitely stayed during one of our hotter times this summer. I'm glad it cools off at night! Not sure why there was no mattress pad on that one bed, we certainly supply those and it should have had one on it. Thank you for bringing that to our attention and for your other suggestions. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed some of the local activities and Lake Cle Elum. It really is a fun area with so many activities to choose from! Please let us know if we can be of assistance again in the future, we 'd love to have you return. Sincerely, Marcia - All Seasons Vacation Rentals

This is the 4th time our group has stayed at this property and we will continue staying here for years to come! The property is top notch all around, from the accommodations to the full-size gym with basketball and volleyball! You really don't need to leave for anything, but is close to town if you need to run to the store!

Reviewer Comments:

Our extended family of 15 stayed here for a long weekend and it was a wonderful property. Lots of room, clean and well appointed. One thing I would say - is there should be a heads up regarding the Christian theme in the entire property. We assumed it must be used for a youth camp.
