Local Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

House was great for 3 dads and our 7 boys. Pool, Hot tub, fooseball and especially Ms. PACMAN were a big hit along with card games at the large kitchen table with a great view. Skiing was OK considering the warm winter we had. Hit Spirit MTN in Duluth on a 50 deg sunny day on the way to the house as they just had 12 " of snow. Tuesday we did Powderhorn. Bummer we could not ski from house due to all the closed runs. Open hills were icy on a much cooler day. Final day we hit Indianhead for much better snow and grooming (sun and less wind helped also). All in all a great 3 days. Had we just stayed in a hotel I think it would have been MUCH less enjoyable. I want to come back when there is more snow.

Spacious, comfortable getaway home in lovely wooded setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two other families to ski and relax and were very happy--plenty of room, and great proximity to the ski hill (although the run from the house to the hill wasn't open because of lack of snow). Enjoyed the hot tub and fireplace, and were able to use the grill as well one day. Also liked having laundry on site so we could wash the towels after hot-tubbing. Instructions were clear and detailed, and the kitchen well stocked. A great stay!

Beautiful, spacious, clean, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Great property, the owners really thought of everything! Loved the games, activities, abundance of towels, blankets, kitchen accessories, condiments and even the junk drawer ( would never had thought to pack a paper clip, extra pens , scissors :-)) Only thing needed, dresser or wardrobe in the upstairs bedrooms- tough to fit anything in the tiny nightstand. Thanks for sharing your home!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with the Chandalet! It's well stocked and ready for guests to kick back and relax. We stayed January 1-4, 2017, and practically had the slopes to ourselves. Unfortunately the ski run near the property wasn't open during our stay, but the lodge is a whole two minutes away and the friendliest shuttle driver ever drove those of us who tuckered out early right to the house door. There were two families in our group and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and play games, eat, watch TV, enjoy the hot tub, etc. We enjoyed the Maplewood Steakhouse for dinner one night and Tacconelli's Pizza delivered to our door the next night - fantastic pizza! We made breakfast each morning in the well equipped kitchen before heading out for a day of skiing. Took family pictures on the balcony, too! The kids already asked if we could return to this property in the future (ages 7-20)

Lovely comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The Chandalet is a lovely and comfortable home that was a wonderful place for our entire family. We were in the UP for a wedding and this was our "home base" for attending all the festivities. Everything we needed was provided from soap for the laundry to choices of small boxes of cereal for our grandchildren. The game room was a hit with everyone, especially Ms. Pac-Man. We would stay again ourselves and recommend it to friends.

Beautiful and Comforting Stay

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at The Chandalet and we could have been more impressed! We were in Awe of the beauty of the home and how well put together it was! We spent the first 30 minutes in the home just looking around with our jaws on the floor! Sue made us feel at home with the decorations and the lovely notes and she checked in on us the very first night to make sure we were comfortable with the arrangement and that we made it alright. A fire was built and ready to light, Christmas decorations were up, clean and just all around relaxing and comforting. We received the very first snow that night and it was gorgeous! I would recommend that anyone who wants to get away for a couple days or have a couples/family retreat that they contact Sue and stay here! What an amazing time!
