Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Jennifer,

We had a great time this weekend at your Alpine Lake Chalet! What a beautiful place and it is so peaceful. The kids made use of the tennis courts, basketball, and the game room at the lodge. We had a picnic at the beach and the younger ones enjoyed the water and sand. We all did a little fishing, hiking and enjoyed the pool table and games at your place. The guys played a round of golf. It was just so enjoyable sitting on the deck and watching the golfers go by. Thank you for providing us with such a nice place to get away for the weekend!

My Best,

The house was very dusty

  • 1 of 5

The house was very dusty we couldn't even make our last day, paid for 3 night but stayed 2 night. The kitchen appliances were sticky. We thought the house hasn't been cleaned for more than a month because you can see too many cobweb in the house, everywhere.

They also forgot to put some toilet paper and hand soap!! Only one of the bathrooms had them. We stayed there during Christmas so it was very hard to find an open place to get toilet paper and hand soap!! If the house won't be taken care of before the holidays for gests, then it shouldn't be rented.

Great home for a large gathering!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of days over Thanksgiving. The owner was very responsive to our initial issue with the heating system and getting the gas fireplace going, and a repairman was at the house soon after we called (the night before Thanksgiving!). The house provides plenty of space to gather for an extended family or group. The Thanksgiving meal at the lodge was awesome, and the new pool and work out facilities look very nice. We would stay here again.

Great experience. Very roomy

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th year in a row that a group of 8 stayed at Chalet 3. It provides plenty of room, is right on the golf course, and has all the amenities we are looking for.

Spacious home, family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 adults and 1 infant thoroughly enjoyed our week long summer stay at this property. There was plenty of space for all of us to hang out. As the weather was beautiful all week, we spent as much time on the shaded, breezy deck overlooking the golf course as anywhere else in the home. The living room area was also well used by us. We ate all our meals at home, with the exception of one meal at Deep Creek. The kitchen is well supplied with pots, pans and dishes. The oven is excellent. We are a pretty flexible group and made the most of a couple of minor short-comings, such as the location of the fridge and a mattress that was rather uncomfortable. As we were there for what was probably the sunniest and warmest week of the summer, we could have done with a couple extra window fans.

There is a library in the home with a good assortment of fiction and non-fiction. Although we didn't use any of the board games supplied, there is a nice range offered.

Jen and Don responded quickly to our emails and concerns. A maintenance man came to help with one or two small items that needed attention. One was not immediately resolvable, but the other was well addressed.

The beach at Alpine Lake is clean, safe and a real amenity. We swam there every day. We also loved the nearby hike to Swallow Falls. Some of us went there three times!

Kayaks/boats are no longer available for hire. One of our group brought a double kayak, which was wonderfully used for fishing and relaxing.

The golf course is challenging, but certainly handy and well groomed. The golfers amongst us were delighted with the course, if not their scores!

Shopping for groceries is a bit of a process. We came well supplied for the week, and were glad we did. Terre Alta is the closest location for food, but both the Dollar General and Shop and Save could hardly be considered gourmet grocery stores. Butter, milk etc are available there.

The neighbors live there year round and are helpful and friendly.

We would recommend this property and location for a family vacation.
