“Very Pleased”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were here for a large family event and it was perfect with a variety of rooms for the range of people. We had a balcony suite and it was really comfortable, well appointed and we loved taking walks in the the National Forest behind the property. Could have enjoyed the food more, but I gather they are working on this and that will be important because there is no place else to go. I would certainly return if I was traveling in the area.

Room Tip: Spring for the better rooms, they are really worth it!

We were looking for a pet friendly place and stayed in the rustic cabin. We were expecting more rustic but were pleased about how nice it was. A bit expensive but it was perfect for our stay. We had some T.V. problems. The matter was dealt with very promptly. Our children played golf, swam, and played on the play ground. We did not find easy river access that was the only bummer. Hit the train tracks and a steep drop not to mention a hail storm for 5 mins. in 80 degree weather. Who knew. Beautiful facilities and great owners that made us feel very welcomed. Catered to our late check in and served us a quick meal before closing. We will return when we drop off and pick up our kids at the wonderful 2 Rivers Soccer Camp. Thanks Chalet View Lodge.

We are so happy to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay with us! I did notice you mentioned not being able to access the Feather River easily. For future reference, we do provide maps and hiking guides at the Front Desk for guest use. Thanks for allowing us to host you on your recent trip; we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Not knowing the area well, we made plans to visit Lake Almanor on 4th of July! There are wonderful activities there but NO vacancy during this holiday. So we searched all surrounding areas, including vacation rentals, but still no availability. My husband discovered the Chalet View Lodge and we traveled there to wait out the holiday. We were amazed at the quality, amenities and serenity of this lodging. It was truly a delight to be there in the pines. Hotel Service was impeccable, as was that for dining.. The room was well-appointed and so comfortable. Because of the altitude, even with sunny weather, it was not hot! You must see their website to appreciate all they have to offer, because you can find plenty to do without leaving the property. But do venture out..the little town of Graeagle (gray-eagle) has lots of quaint shops and a lake they call a pond where you can swim, picnic, etc. We explored many back roads and swam in nearby lakes. The Staff at Chalet View can direct you to fun things to do. Also, this is a base for anyone - we met senior couples, hikers/fishermen(and women), and families with young children or teens here! The pool and patio terrace are delightful. I cannot tell how wonderful and affordable it is here!

Room Tip: We had a room on the pool side (not highway), and it was very quiet as we are light sleepers.

Good things: great spot for fam vaca or romantic get away, par three gold is fun for kids or adults to learn on, great spot for fishing and hiking, definitely one of the top lodging in the area. Loved the outdoor jacuzzi that faced the forest. Very few people midweek so lots of privacy. Full Starbucks menu. Short hike to Feather River where we caught and released fish and saw beavers. Outdoor patio with pizza oven was awesome potential but pizza was not great. Menu advetised onions and garlic and non was on the pizza. Really lovely carpentry, tiling and moulding and i loved the unique outdoor light fixtures. Not so great: when we arrived they informed us that chef quit and no dinner would be served for three days. That was okay because we brought in lots of our food from Whole Foods in Reno. one day they were out of half and half and one day they were out of morning coffee for guests. They got us complimentary Americanos at Starbucks. No rugs or carpets anywhere in the downstairs or upstairs of the spa suite. The tile is rough and dark and felt dirty. The way the spa suite was advertised, I thought I would have an outdoor private jacuzzi tub but it was indoor private. No outdoor patio for our suite to enjoy the summer breeze and drink a glass of wine. Parking spot view outside of room. I went this time for romantic getaway and it was WAY beyond my expectations. I will come again for sure.

A group of us held a weekend retreat here from a Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and it was divine. The rooms, meeting room, people and service were wonderful and they couldn't have been more pleasant. This little slice of paradise is only about an hour from Reno and you feel like you are worlds away.

We de Diego take a few days off and google for a nice hotel in this area. Our room has double terrace doors onto a deck overlooking the grounds, back of lodge and pool. Had a nice massage by Amanda at the spa. It is small but comfortable. Our room has king bed,fireplace and flat screen tv. Bath gas 2 sinks, small closet with separate shower/toilet area. Steps from our bed area leads to sitting loft, table, chairs, small frig with no freezer, microwave plus 1/2 bath. I assume the sma sofa is a hide-a-bed. There is a little traffic during the day as it is on Highway 70, only 2 lines not a freeway. This lodge has all that I wanted. Breakfast. Nice dinners. Spa. Golf and bikes. A great getaway. Hope you like it also

What was supposed to be a 3 day business trip in the middle of nowhere, ended up being a month long trip in which I ran over my cell phone, worked 12 hour days, failing at what I was doing, but surrounded by beauty (not just you Anna), and lucky enough to spend my nights at the Chalet View Lodge. Off the beaten path of the Sierra's, the Chalet View is definitely the premier resort in the area. I loved my rooms, (I think I stayed in half on them), the dinning, and ending my nights at the bar with the friendly staff who didn't get to go home on time for a month because I always had to have one more glass of wine. The owners Carrie and Bob made me feel at home, attended to all my requests, and provided much needed laughter and stimulating conversation. The area is rich in history and I would love to go back for pleasure rather than business.
