Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Innsbrook - Chalet 1717 by Sarah Bernard

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

We are excited to help you plan your vacation! We have two Innsbrook properties on vrbo next door to each other so you've come to the right place!

Recently redecorated with bathroom upgrades and a new sand beach! PLUS a new lakeside fire pit & patio, perfect for enjoying the outdoors year-round.

If your idea of roughing it includes a premium property with satellite TV, WiFi, a gorgeous lake setting, complete privacy and endless amenities, you've found the perfect location! Enjoy a long weekend or an entire week in a beautiful newer Innsbrook A-frame. Located within a gated community, this chalet was built in late 2007 and is luxuriously outfitted for all of your getaway needs -- whether you're seeking a romantic escape or a weekend of fun with family and friends. Nestled within a 1.3 acre forest of trees, this very private deluxe chalet is the perfect setting for your next vacation. Lake Sonnenblick is just outside the door where you will enjoy watching a constant flow of wildlife.

Sit on the dock or the deck, or even the screened in porch and feel a part of nature in Innsbrook's Audubon Sanctuary. Take a paddleboat ride around 4-acre Lake Sonnenblick. In the summertime, enjoy the popular sand beaches and swim docks on 150-acre Lake Aspen, the Conference Center and beautiful outdoor swimming pool, as well as Innsbrook's award-winning 18-hole golf course and Hanneken's Restaurant, all just minutes from the chalet.

Three private bedrooms are fully furnished with queen-size beds. The loft also contains a sleeper sofa (queen size) and twin size rollaway. A crib is also available!

The beautiful first-floor living room has amazing views and a wood-burning fireplace, perfect for Fall and Winter getaways.

The over-sized kitchen is well-appointed and is ready for preparing meals for small or large gatherings. A gas grill on the deck is also available. Satellite TV with upgraded movie and sports channels is available at no additional charge.

At Innsbrook Resort, relax and enjoy the outdoors -- you are surrounded by towering trees and the beauty of nature. The 8000 acres of the Village of Innsbrook includes 100 lakes and is a certified Audubon Sanctuary, the first resort to be so designated in the United States. Innsbrook is a community committed to protecting the natural environment -- take pleasure in long walks and nature trails, enjoy horseback riding, swimming and miles of biking. Innsbrook also offers many additional family activities, including concerts, a music festival, art and garden shows, camps for kids and outdoor movies. Most events are free or available for nominal cost.

A paddleboat is included with the chalet and is stored at the water's edge next to the dock.

About Sarah Bernard

I live in St. Louis County with my three children and love that we can easily get to our Innsbrook house in an hour, door-to-door, for a getaway weekend or sometimes for just a night. We purchased our first property at Innsbrook in 2005 and moved in for summer fun in 2006. We love going to Innsbrook as much as we can! We spend our days swimming in the lake, feeding the huge catfish that come to our dock, picking lots of berries, grilling steaks and exploring the woods. We absolutely love our time at Innsbrook and are anxious for everyone to experience how wonderful it is. No one has yet to come away less than enthusiastic!

Sarah Bernard purchased this chalet in 2008

Why Sarah Bernard chose Missouri

Innsbrook is a world away from the busy suburban life that we live most of the time. When you pass through the main gate at Innsbrook, you feel like you've traveled across the country to a unique destination. It's a peaceful getaway, full of family fun, yet such an incredibly easy escape. We bought this chalet in 2008 to use as a vacation rental so we can share everything we love about Innsbrook with others -- old friends and new friends alike.

What makes this chalet unique

We love to bike the many roads (& hills!) of Innsbrook on early summer mornings. The kids love to fish off the dock all year and they spend hours in the summertime in the water -- swimming, floating, sailing. (They've even been known to break through the ice in the wintertime in the kayak). The wildlife is incredible -- not a day goes by when we don't see deer, bluebirds, woodpeckers, owls. It's a huge treat to see the animals to close to us. We also love the simple life that Innsbrook offers -- the orchards nearby, tiny Harmony Church, the friendliness of all the staff, the country store for ice cream, the farmer's market for homemade bread and fresh produce. We have explored it all -- golf, tennis, the basketball courts, all the beaches, the running trails, the outdoor movies. We love sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee or glass of wine just taking it all in; total relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful time at Chalet 1717. The scenery and peace and quiet were wonderful and we would definitely consider coming back. The Chalet was just as the pictures on the website showed. I wanted to thank you for the list of things to do for a day trip as well. We did take advantage of that list and went to Six Flags one day. The weather couldn't have been better for just lazing in the lake. Thank you again for your hospitality and the chance to rent such a beautiful place for our vacation.

Music Nuts

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful setting for musicians. The band played Saturday afternoon on the dock. So peaceful. We have enjoyed #1717 every 6 months since 2009. The fire pit is a plus. No negatives at all. Sarah is the best. Can't wait to come back.

Amazing House and Landlord

  • 5 of 5

I rented #1717 for my wife's birthday, bringing all the in-laws. We arrived to an especially cleaned house, with all the beds made and clean towels in the bathrooms. The house is a great fit for a medium size group; three bedrooms with queens, large lower level, great deck off the back and and a dock right off the deck.

Sarah the landlord gives you a ton of information prior to your arrival and went the extra mile to get a few items we left behind back to us. Can't recommend enough.

IBK Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible weekend at Innsbrook! The chalet was comfortable, inviting and contained everything you need for a trip away from home; plus the view was spectacular. I often rent homes via VRBO and I have never dealt with a home owner as efficient and professional as Sarah. I would highly recommend this rental! I appreciate that it is pet friendly (we didn't take advantage of that this time, but will keep it in mind).

The Perfect Weekend Getaway (even in the winter)

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending 4 increadible weekends at Sarah Bernard's chalet this winter. Innsbrook is gorgeous this time of the year as well, and to see the lakes covered in ice and snow was stunning. The chalet is perfect in and and out: comfortable, nicely decorated, fully equipped, and with views to the lake that you just can't get tired of looking at. We found everything that we needed. We hiked, watched the stars, grilled barbecue, cooked hot dogs and s'mores, played board games, relaxed by the lake and so much more.The kids had a great time walking around, picnicking, and sledding. We had guests over a couple of times and they loved it. We could bring our dog which made it even better. Sarah was always available whenever we needed and was very flexible regarding check in and check out times which we really appreciated. We could break the winter blues and we had a great time with family and friends while there. It's one of those places that leaves fond memories. We miss chalet 1717 already and can't wait to go back!
