We stayed in the Mountain Chalet cottage November 8-10, 2012. The directions were perfect, but I'm glad we didn't arrive after dark, since it's way off the beaten path. I've rated the location as 'excellent', because that is exactly what we were looking for. If your idea of a great location is closer to the 'mix of things', this won't be the place for you.
Our cottage was exactly like the pictures on the website, so I haven't posted any of my own. This was specifically a couples' cabin, so there was soft music playing when we arrived, and chocolate on a bed tray. The furnishings were top-notch, with a beautiful bed and bedding, leather couch, plenty of wood for the fireplace, candles all around, books to read, soft luxurient towls and two wonderful bathrobes hanging in the bathroom. Everything was clean and sparkling. The bed was truly comfortable - even extra pillows i the closet.
They've truly stocked the cabin with everything you need except for food and drink. From condiments, wine opener, skillets, blender, mixer, pots & pans, candles & lighters, fire starters, storage bowls, bbq utensils...we lacked for nothing. It's at least 30 minutes from the closest decent-sized grocery store, so definitely do your shopping beforehand.
With no television, we stayed on the deck, read, played cards, grilled outside, sat in the jetted tub with the wonderful view, and just walked around the property some. The scenery this time of year was beautiful, but it was rather warm for the clothing we packed.
The only negative to the trip was the tub - there was a terrible 'scum' substance that accumulated on top of the water when you turned the jets on. I'm not familiar with these tubs...maybe that's common or someone used product in it that shouldn't have been used?
We plan on returning, and hope to get a cabin right on the water (the Mountain Chalet is not close enough to even hear the river). I'd recommend this property completely if you love the peace & quiet and don't mind the true downtime it offers.
Alhtough there was a home and another cabin within a short walking distance from this one, the dense...
