We recently stayed at the chalet for my birthday weekend. We were a group of 8 people and slept comfortably the entire weekend with room to spare. The location is unbeatable and the chalet is beautifully decorated. From the moment we booked to checkout, everything was easy and well organized. Definitely looking forward to our next trip to the chalet...

Our group had a wonderful time at Heather's chalet. It's bigger than the pictures make it seem and very well kept and cozy. It's also steps from the mountain which is perfect for those who want to get out on the slopes right away. Heather was a pleasure to work with. Would definitely come back!

Management response:

We loved having you! Please come back anytime! All the best, Heather
