Absolutely wonderful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were 11 adults, 5 kids ranging from 3-11, and 2 infants for our annual summer gather-up. We have stayed in other VRBO rentals, but none have compared to the outstanding customer service and concern given by Teodore and Monica. Any question was immediately answered and any adjustments that needed to be made (we were having difficulty getting the hot tub up to temperature) were done swiftly and with the attitude that our comfort was a top priority. The house was very comfortable and enabled everyone in our family to have private space as well as be able to all gather together for meals, games, TV. Having the hot tub and the sauna was the perfect amenity after a hardy and beautiful hike just a short car ride away. Being so close to the Hyak Tunnel provided another exciting memory. The kitchen was very well stocked - even with a Vitamix - which made meal time a pleasure. We heartily recommend The Grand Chalet to anyone looking for a stress free and memory building experience. We left having 3 wonderful days to remember. Thank you so much, Teodore and Monica, for being outstanding hosts.

Family Thanksgiving in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this spacious three-level home at Snoqualmie Pass this Thanksgiving week. Our family of thirteen includes grandparents and two families with a total of 7 children ranging in age from 21-months to almost thirteen years. We had plenty of space to spread out, but also plenty of room to have a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner together. We enjoyed the beautiful game room in the lower level and the foos ball table and shuffleboard table were in constant use throughout our three day stay. The big sectional sofa downstairs had space for all of us to snuggle up for a family movie night at the end of the day.

The owners of Grand Hyak Chalet are always available to help and responded within hours (sometimes minutes) to any of my questions. They were gracious about allowing us early check-in on our arrival day since the house had not been rented on the prior day. This made our prep for Thanksgiving so much better and we are truly appreciative. Teodor and Monica, the owners, reached out to us several times via text to make certain everything was fine and to let us know they were available to take care of any needs.

We would definitely rent this wonderful home again for our family!

Great house for a big group

  • 5 of 5

We were a big group of 5 families with little kids. The house was great for us to stay together and remain close to all the great activities on the pass. The host was very helpful and accommodating with information and answering questions. If we're ever back in the area with a big group we are sure to try to get the chalet again.

Lots of space and great kitchen in this quirky house

  • 4 of 5

We held our company retreat at the Grand Chalet. Our group was very happy with the house. It's a little quirky, with Christmas decorations up in mid-August, but it was a nice big space for us to relax and have some great conversations. The kitchen was the best equipped of any vacation rental I've ever stayed at, and the mountain views from the deck off the kitchen are spectacular. Not to mention the beautiful sauna right by the hot tub. Even in August it got cool enough in the evening to take advantage.

The house was clean, but the white carpet upstairs has taken a beating. Upon arrival the carpeted steps were wet. I assumed that was due to an unsuccessful attempt to steam clean them between renters. But big picture the house is well taken care of, and the owners were friendly, texting with info on the area upon arrival.

I was a little wary of MANY video cameras that are located all around the exterior of the house including the upper deck that's only accessible from the kitchen. I'm assuming this was a precautionary measure after a bad experience, but the thought of us being recorded all weekend made me a uncomfortable.

And a side note.. the shuffleboard table seems to have had the wrong material dumped on top, so it was out of commission during our stay. The table looked great so it was too bad we couldn't play.

Great Location for Outdoor Activities

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Grand Chalet in Snoqualmie. It was close to hiking trails, lakes and the Iron Horse trail. There was plenty to do to keep our family entertained.

Great Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was as described and was perfect for our family! The owners have made sure that the house has everything one could need for a comfortable stay!

Everybody had a great time!

The only thing I would suggest to other guests is that they bring whatever they need for their stay on their way in because other than a small convenient store at the summit, which has essentials, the nearest supermarket is about a 30 min drive away.
