We stayed for 3 nights at the Chalets and had a great time. My sisters stayed in a double room, big bed and well set out, my wife and I stayed in a snow mountain view room which had a great balcony for us to sit out on. Firstly the setting is beautiful. The Chalets enclose a court yard garden and is (in the distance) over looked by snow mountain.
Bruce and his wife were by far the most helpful and accommodating owners/ hoteliers I have come across while traveling. This was highlighted by coming to meet us when the l taxi driver didn't know where she was going and lending us 20rmb to cover another trip as we had no change. Nothing was too difficult for them.
We arranged a couple of day trips and these were fine ( if you are planning to go up snow mountain do either wrap up very , very well or take advantage of the coats for hire and get there early morning or lunchtime as the tour buses can mean a long wait so avoid them mid morning.) We went on a horse riding trip but decided not to bother in the end as the costs were very high.
We were staying in the beginning of April and it would be fair to say the rooms were chilly, it did make getting out of bed painful in the morning. There are heat lamps in the bathroom which were good and made showering fine. In the beds there were electric blankets so that made the massive bed very cozy and pleasant if not extra hard to get out of.
The chalets are a 10 min walk from Sanhe they are not in lijiang so please don't be fooled. For us it is was perfect, a short stroll from the preferred Sanhe old town .
Breakfast was in the kitchen area and was communally served around one big table. it was plentiful and tasty.
I would definitely stay again and will be recommending to friends.
