About the property

3 bedrooms + loft, 2 full baths, sleeps 11, 8 adult max, no limit on # of kids

This lovely lake front chalet rests at the end of a peninsula on an acre of land with a 35 ft x 15 ft private beach, stone steps providing easy access into the lake, a private campfire area, private dock for fishing & a paddle boat and kayak for use at no additional cost. The heart of the home is the two-story great room, with an entire wall of windows facing the 15 acre lake. The great room has a grand stone fire place, leather couches, large dining table and chairs and for your enjoyment CD’s, books, games and DVD's for children and adults.

There is a second play area up in the loft with toys, games and books for kids. The chalet has three bedrooms and a loft providing sleeping accommodations for 11 comfortably.

Innsbrook: With over 100 lakes spanning its 7,000 acres, Innsbrook offers guests solitude and relaxation in a beautiful natural setting. Whether you are floating in a canoe across a lake, riding horses, playing golf, hiking a nature trail or simply resting on your deck, Innsbrook can provide you with the escape you need and a place to reconnect with family and friends.

Innsbrook is also the first resort community in the continental US to become a certified Audubon sanctuary through Audubon International (1999). This translates into an oasis where wildlife abounds. From bald eagles and swallowtail tiger butterflies to blue-tailed skinks and cedar waxwings, a variety of bird and wildlife make their home at Innsbrook. It is common to see deer roaming freely. The lakes are regularly stocked with fish. Landscaping is carried out with native flora. This delicate balance is nurtured through environmental planning, wildlife management and resource conservation.

About Lauri Teagan

Hi! We're the Teagans and we've owned this beautiful chalet since fall 2006. We bought the house when our kids were 2 and 3 and have tried to include everything a family could want. We have kept books, beach and indoor toys and dvd's from when our children were young and added to the collection as they have grown. We even included fun stuff for the adults as well.

Lauri Teagan purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Lauri Teagan chose Innsbrook

We fell in love with the house the first time we went out to visit Innsbrook and decided to jump right in and buy it. We feel this is a special place even for Innsbrook because its on the end of a penninsula surrounded by water on 3 sides and has a significant area of flat land where our children can play, something particularly special and unusual for Innsbrook. The first thing we did when we bought this property was to put in a private beach and campfire area. We have decided to provide every amenity our family could ever want and hopefully thought of everything for you as well.

What makes this chalet unique

Something we love about this place is the 2 story wall of windows in the Great Room. Whether you are inside or outside you are surrounded by breathtaking views and can't help but relax in picturesque nature. The Great Room also provides the perfect spot for the whole group to relax and celebrate their time together. Right off the Great Room is a deck the length of the house providing plenty of room to bar-b-que, enjoy outdoor dining and lying out and enjoying the scenery.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect for the family - the kids love the beach and caught a lot of fish. It was great! The experience was perfectly relaxing. The first place we stayed in a long time we didn't have to put up with anything when we got there.

Great property no matter the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Despite continuous rain, we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The chalet has everything you could possibly need or want. Great for kids thanks to all the games and toys for all ages. The grandkids caught their first fish from the dock area. Can't imagine a better place for a family vacation.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay was amazing! This home had everything we needed for cooking, the bathrooms were well stocked with towels, laundry detergent, plenty of blankets, and beautiful deck for grilling outdoors. We did not have enough wood for the outdoor fire pit and had to pick up sticks in the yard. The fire pit also is in need of a good cleaning. Lauri was also very quick to respond to questions we had during our stay. A couple things to note: If you are not familiar with Innsbrook, it is a HUGE gated area with only 1 entrance in for guests. From the main entrance it takes 15 minutes to get to this property (10-20 mph, up and down many hills, around curves and speed bumps). It's a beautiful area, but I wish we had known the location of the property and the rules about entering and existing the property when we rented this home. The exit was just a couple minutes from the home, but you could not re-enter this way. We did enjoy our stay

Thank you!

Perfect Lakeside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We take a siblings trip every year and we loved this house so much that we returned for a second time. It has plenty of room for us to hang out by the fire or play games at the large kitchen table.

Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Innsbrook for a wedding. We were able to spend time as a family and enjoyed watching my grandson fish for the first time and ride in a paddle boat for the first time. Our house reminded us of years ago when we used to come to Innsbrook so we felt right at home with the beautiful view and peacefulness. We left saying, "We have to do this again!"

Perfect for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

We have eight children from ages two to thirteen. This house has games, fishing poles, multiple boats (kayaks, a canoe, a peddle boat, a paddle boat), life preservers, etc.

Just bring enough food and they've thought of everything else (including a kitchen with pots, pans, plates and flatware).

We are able to sleep all ten of us, and feed all ten of us both inside and on the deck (my favorite place for us to eat.)

We love this place and have come back several times!

Week of 9/10/17

  • 4 of 5

This was my first rental in this area. I tend to rent property during the week and after Labor Day or before Memorial Day. It was very, very quiet. I had no neighbors around until half way through my week. Even then, I only heard them a couple times when I was on the deck and saw them on the lake a few times. I'm not sure how many people were there, but I did see three cars.

The chalet was clean and well stocked with towels, dishes, utensils, etc. I was the only one on this trip, but there was plenty of room for a family, a couple small families and/or friends. Both the fire alarms and the front door lock are wired into the security system of Innsbrook.

I had a perfect view of the lake during the day and into the evenings. At night, when the clouds had passed through, I saw the most beautiful sky full of stars! As I was alone, I did not get in the water. However, there were plenty of water "toys" for adults...kayaks, pedal boat, rafts, and a canoe. I also saw a plastic pool for the kids.

I spent one afternoon checking out the amenities...stables, tennis courts, basketball court, fitness center, pools, etc. There were only a few people scattered in these places. I'm sure the time of day, as well as time of year, had something to do with the quiet. I chose to drive under the speed limit while driving after seeing deer in yards, in the woods and on the road.

My only complaint was not having a land line during my stay and my cell phone was spotty. However, the internet worked perfectly, which helped me keep in contact with my family. The phone company was working on the phone lines and it was an unusual issue. For most people, I don't think this would be a problem.

Lauri was helpful before and during my stay. She is very easy to work with. Even though she is out of the area, she has a woman named Sandy you can get in contact with if you need help with something. Also, a security guard named, Bill, checked in on me and later stopped his car on the road as we passed to ask how I was enjoying my stay. All very friendly people.

I hesitated writing this review because I really want to keep this my secret hide away. ;)
