"What a great time! My family stayed at the chalet for the first week of August. There were 6 adults, one teenager and 3 younger boys. We found the accomodations wonderful. Each couple & teenager had their own bedrooms with king or queen sized beds and the younger boys enjoyed the queen sized bed and bunk beds on the lower level. There was even a Spiderman bed that the youngest boys took turns sleeping There was plenty of room in the cabin for all of us. We particularly enjoyed the open concept main level. The kitchen was well stocked and the nice island provided plenty of room for meal preparation. There's a great view of the lake from the living room windows as well as from the wrap around deck!
Big Bass Lake was perfect. It's not a huge lake, but then there weren't a lot of boaters creating traffic problems! We cruised the beautiful quiet lake every day in our pontoon. It' s so beautiful there! We spent a lot of time on the lake! Everyone enjoyed swimming off the swimming platform, riding in the paddle boat and going out on the lake in the canoe. The water level on the lake was quite high due to heavy rainfall the previous month, but the swimming area has a nice sandy bottom and unencumbered by reeds and grasses. The three youngest boys were thrilled to catch their first fish right off the dock! We caught a lot of fish and even had a fish fry one evening. We did have rain for part of one day, but everyone was kept occupied playing pool, ping pong and foos ball. We even watched a movie!
The town of Minong is a short drive away for groceries, bait, gas and ice. Tommy, at the bait & tackle store, was very helpful to us. Henson's grocery store probably has everything you'd need... and then some! There are a few restaurants nearby as well. We loved Bootleggers... They had excellent food and a very friendly staff. It was a
pleasure working with Kathy who was always accommodating and easy to contact.
All in all, it was a wonderful family vacation. We'd highly recommend this chalet."
