About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

PLEASE BOOK WITH CONFIDENCE. We've rented directly for 11 years on this site, and never kept $1 of security deposit. We prefer booking directly, so that there is no additional cost to you.

Lots of windows and light. On 1/3 acre, but surrounded by trees with a greenbelt in back. Wrap-around deck. Cathedral ceiling, post and beam construction. Tastefully decorated. A cozy, warm place. Large master upstairs with balcony overlooking living room. Large downstairs bedroom and smaller bedroom with two single beds. Full bath downstairs.

Near five golf courses, two are PGA caliber. One is walking distance, as is downtown Graeagle, a nice little village with lots of character.

Wonderful hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities.

2-day minimum, please. Available for long-term rental (excluding currently booked dates).

About Tom Palmer

We're a happy a little family that likes to hike and swim in mountain lakes.

Tom Palmer purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Tom Palmer chose Graeagle

We looked at a lot of places in Graeagle. Many were surrounded by trees, which is great, but never got enough sun and seemed dank. Our place gets plenty of light (even among many trees) because of the way it's situated. With an exposed, post & beam structure & cathedral ceiling, it's our just idea of a mountain getaway!

What makes this chalet unique

One of the best values in Graeagle. Book directly, without an additional fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Tom, the rental was both comfortable and well located for our vacation. We were blessed with good weather and spend most of our time outdoors and sight-seeing. It rained on Labor Day..."

Beautiful Chalet in Graeagle
average rating of 4.5 based on 9 reviews

Very cozy home, in a great location near some of the finest fishing and hiking areas!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, casual getaway within walking distance to the Millpond and Graeagle is within a few minutes driving distance to some beautiful rivers, lakes and hiking trails. The Chalet worked perfectly hosting dinner for our large group that rented 2 homes in the area.

The dining/living area is open, with plenty of floor and deck space for kids to nap and play without being in danger (or in our way). It's not fancy, but it was comfortable and had all we needed! We will be back.

Always Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

This year will be our third visit to the Chalet. We love the area. We find the lodging quite comfortable, easy to get to, and pretty much everything we need to enjoy our vacation. The downstairs shower is great. The upstairs closet is super roomy. We love sitting out on the deck reading or getting prepped for fishing. All in all, the Chalet is a good place to stay when you visit the Graeagle area.

Best value in Graeagle but you may want to spend a bit more.

  • 3 of 5

Bottom line: Very good value but we would pay more for better amenities next time.

My fiance and I stayed here for five nights this July (2013). Below are some pluses & minuses you might consider when making a decision about this place.

+'s: The place is pretty clean; the beds are comfortable (we tried the upstairs and downstairs queens); there is sufficient cookware and dinnerware; the setting is nice - inside is a large open living area with a loft that has a few chairs (but little else); large, comfy couch with pillows downstairs; outside, there is a nice deck that extends from front to back doors; behind the house is a greenbelt area with a lot of trees and the houses next door aren't too close; some wildlife visits the area.

-'s: There is some deferred maintenance - some of the vertical blinds are missing and/or missing their control function; the shower doors are in need of adjustment/lubrication. Outside table/chairs hardware is loose. A couple safety improvement suggestions - get a better trash storage cabinet. We were visited two nights by a very large brown bear who easily got into the Rubbermaid type cabinet and removed the trash can.. A heavy rock on the cabinet was no deterrent. The cabinet is located on the front porch, about six feet from the front door. If the bear keeps getting in, he may become a nuisance and have to be relocated, or worse. Other safety suggestions - a garden hose would be a good idea, just in case of fire. Along those lines, a brick pad for the charcoal burning bbq would be a much better place than on the wood deck.

Other thoughts: Would be nice to have an arrival/info packet about the place (including the telephone number for the phone). No internet (unless you connect via cell phone service). Having a connection might entice visitors to stay (and work) an extra day or two. Dish network service for the two older flat-screen Sony Trinitrons (one in living room and one in master) is the most basic cable service (didn't matter to us – we weren’t there to watch tv, but) no music channels and the portable CD/stereo radio picked up no stations. No library of movies or CD's on site. No toilet paper holder in the upstairs bath. There is a hot tub in back but it's not maintained/usable. Bring spices for your food if you want anything other than salt and pepper.

Graeagle and the Lakes Basin area are beautiful. All the people we met were friendly. We'll be back but stay someplace a bit nicer.

Great house, very clean and comfortable! Close access to some terrific areas for day hiking. And you can't beat the pine-scented fresh air!
