Very nice chalet with incredible view out of front living room window. Take note, this was the chalet...not the cabins which looked rustic and small. There was a living/dining area. Kitchen was stocked with cooking baking needs, refrigerator, stove, no microwave. Seperate bedroom and bath. Had to rent or bring your own linens. Also, theres no electricity between 10 pm and 12 noon. So, no hairdryer, toothbrush or toaster if you needed it.....everything runs on gas between those hours....that was hard to get used to. Also, they want you to clean up after yourself when you leave...I dont think thats really a positive. We paid a lot for the chalet and I dont think you should have to clean it...we didnt make any mess so it wasnt a big deal and the staff was very nice about how much you were expected to "clean" up. We didnt know where to get ahold of staff when the general store/small "restaurant" was closed. Some negatives to consider....but if you like the outdoors and hiking and wonderful views....this place certainly delivered. I think in the summer it could be noisy...theres outside firepits and some of the places are rather close. We didnt have any trouble when we went later in the season. We seen bear and deer everyday we were there. Birds of all kinds and squirrels all over the place. The drive up is bad...thats all I can say. It takes an hour and a half to get there on very, very, twisty narrow roads only wide enough for one and a half cars. Definitely take heed to the bad reviews about this road....its so true. So going back down into town or over to other side of park is really tiresome and uses up a lot of your time and energy everyday. (3 hours up and down total) So we spent a couple of days at the Chalet doing hikes up on the mountain.
