My gf's and I have been going away for "girl's weekend" for years, and we all agreed that this was one of the nicer places we have stayed.
Upon arrival, we had our things trammed up the mountain to the chalet. The chalet is above the hosts house, perched on top of the mountain facing a spectacular view of the glaciers. The deck wraps around the chalet and has a wonderful hot tub. Tables, chairs and a bbq are also located on the deck. (smoking allowed outside) Inside, there are three bedrooms, one bathroom, and an open designed kitchen and living area. One bedroom is located on the main floor, two upstairs. The beds are extremely comfortable, and we all slept like babies!
The chalet is filled with interesting woodwork and pictures. Natural wood moldings, funky art, and beautifully carved wood pieces.Very attractive.
Another great perk are the hiking trails. They are on the property and were "made" by Warren, the owner. We ventured out one day for a short hike, and found ourselves at a view point looking out over Howe Sound....beautiful!
The owners also allow pets. (we had my friend's little dog with us) The rules for pets are no going on the furniture, upstairs, or on the area rug in the living area. She paid an extra $20.00 a night for her.
There were only a few things that could have improved our stay. The ants in the kitchen were a nusaince. They were tiny, but in the morning out in full force. We would wipe down the counters thoroughly and it seemed to not be a problem until the next morning. Also, I felt that paying $300.00 a night for three people, should have given us full use of the chalet. Not so. We were allowed to use two of the three bedrooms, and would have had to pay substantially more to use the third room. Having said that, neither of these things would stop us from going again.
Lastly, this is NOT a place to go with young children, (the deck has a wooden rail but nothing to stop a child from stepping off the edge), or for older people unable to climb several sets of steep stairs. There is no wheelchair access. But, for a friends retreat, or a romantic get away, it is perfect! Go in the good weather to see all the view has to offer, when it is cloudy or rainy, the view disappears.

Guests who visit our chalet, choose it most often so that they can be in nature. We at Tanatalus View Retreat tread lightly within this natural setting and work diligently to maintian a balance in how we use nature's resources without disturbing nature. I am afraid that nature does not have the same philosophy. The animals around us are not as worried about disturbing us as we are about disturbing them and each spring and fall they attempt a small invasion. Ants will look for a home for the summer. We are vigilant in our pest control and regret that our little friends were a nuisence. Soon they will have found somewhere else to dwell and the chalet will once again be a human sanctuary in nature's splendor.
