About Teodor & Monica Tofoleanu

We built our-self this chalet in 2007.

We live in Seattle and we come often to Hyak and enjoy a lot with our friends.

My background is merchant marine captain and my wife works as a legal assistant for Attorney General in downtown Seattle.

Teodor & Monica Tofoleanu purchased this chalet in 2007

Why Teodor & Monica Tofoleanu chose Snoqualmie Pass

We decided to buy a piece of land not too far from Seattle and far enough to feel in the wilderness.

During the summer there are so many trails to hiking on them and listen to the birds.

Hyak Tunnel that can be walk through, is in walking distance too.

John Wayne Trails behind our Chalet.

Gold Creek loop with a unique crystal clear lake (place for picnicking) - 5 minutes driving

No steep hills to drive to, close to 4 ski resorts areas (East Summit, Central Summit, West Summit and Alpental) and much more.

What makes this chalet unique

Close to Seattle, big enough to fit multiple families, organize parties, weddings and more. Mountains view from all bedrooms, 6 persons dry/wet sauna, 6 persons hot tub, 2 jetted tubs, barbecue on propane, wi-fi high speed internet, land phone line to make phone calls to 50 states, heated 500 sf deck for outdoor party, fire pit (bring your own fire wood) and much, much more

Great location for our church high school group!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 21 youth and 4 adults thoroughly enjoyed this location for our summer retreat. We just got back this morning and had the most memorable time together!

The bedrooms are well setup, 3 huge ones on top floor w/ 2 bathrooms (where we put the girls and a married couple with a baby), 1 medium size bedroom on the main floor and 1.5 baths, and 2 medium/small bedrooms downstairs where we crammed in 9 guys and 1 bathroom. It worked great.

Kitchen / living area was a little small for our 25 people, but since it was nice outside and there were extra tables and seating aplenty, we enjoyed the very spacious deck! (A group our size would likely not work for eating together in cold winter months I would imagine.) The downstairs big room easily converted into our main room where all 24 comfortably sat to hear the messages taught.

Only downside is you have to drive a little to do anything fun outside of the house, but it's not too bad (or there's a good lake with swimming and boating that's 1.1 miles walk). Dawson Park in Suncadia is awesome and just 30 minutes away, and Speelyi beach was 45 minutes. We hit up both of those with our youth and loved them.

Very nice summer spot for us! In 3 years of summer retreats all at different locations, this place was our group's hands-down favorite. Thank you Teodor!

Ideal Situation

  • 5 of 5

I rented this chalet to host fourteen people over a long weekend. Teodor was very helpful throughout the entire process. Upon our arrival, we had bedding, towels, and everything else we might need to thoroughly enjoy our stay. The kitchen had just about every bit of cookware and dinnerware we could have possibly imagined (save a modern can opener), which made our stay that much easier and seamless.

I highly recommend this property for anyone that could need a massive house for large groups.

Great place for a family get away!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults and 6 kids at the house (kids ranging from 4 months to 14 years), and it was a perfect set up. The older kids had a great hang out spot downstairs with foosball. It was close to the Hyak snow park for sledding and snowshoeing and close to East Summit for skiing. We will definitely be back! Teodor (the owner) was super responsive when we had some issues getting the driveway cleared so we could park our cars, and with any questions we had the entire weekend.

Fantastic chalet located a 5 minute walk from the East/Hyak ski lift

  • 5 of 5

The chalet easily accommodated our party of 20 with lots of room to spare. Owners were very gracious and responsive to our requests and were ok with our late check out, allowing us to watch the Superbowl amidst a snow covered wonderland. Thank you again Teodor & Monica!

Nice chalet at Hyak.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time, it was comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate our large group. All the amenities were in place; TV, games, hot tub (the water looked in need of freshening) and sauna were all fun.

The ski will was a bit of a walk, maybe 15 minutes or so.

The owner was kind enough to allow us to check out late which we really appreciated.

Would definitely stay there again.
