Just returned from a two night stay in our "Chalet" - something I found amusing since it was a duplex cottage with no hint of a chalet architecture - well maybe the roofs did extend a little of the front. At check-in, when I inquired about over rooms that may be a available and possibly a little less expensive (we paid $175 per night), the clerk got snippy and told me nothing else was available - basically you're stuck with what you booked. Upon entering I was underwhelmed with the rather stark atmosphere - linoleum tile floor and two small couches, loveseats really, and a small old style TV perched up in the corner that looked like it would be tough to view given its angle. It was.
We did notice that it was clean, very clean and it appeared fairly new in construction. So we gave it shot. Then we realized the bed was hard, not firm but hard. And one other thing, the road that you use to access your "chalet" appears to be a public thruway as there were some ATVs motoring up and down it, reving their engines as they went by.
It did have a nice setting, slthough the black flies kept us from really enjoying the outdoor furniture and community fireplace.
Bottom line is that we stayed in several B&B's, very nice ones, and they were all in the $90-$120 price range. This place seemed like it shouldn't have been as expensive.
