Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chalet in Robesonia - Private Hills Chalet

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, indoor Jacuzzi and outdoor custom Hottub and Fireplace

You will find this country location very private and enchanting - yet only a few miles from restaurants, grocery stores, drug store, gas station, etc (scroll down to see the Gogobot links to nearly places)

The chalet has just been (as of Feb 2016!) renovated/restored with new appliances, flooring, furniture, paint, lighting, etc. throughout. At the same time the aged ceiling beams and boards were kept in their original state!

It is situated in approximately a 2 acre clearing near the back of almost 10 wooded acres. The road is not visible from the chalet, which is actually 1/10th of a mile from the road.

You may see wildlife (or evidence of its recent presence) as you explore the woods and walk along the creek.

We have an custom outdoor year-round chemical free hot tub (with saline based purification system) sunken into the patio for comfortable entry and exit.

Relax on the double lounger by the outdoor fireplace after unwinding in the hot tub, while smelling your steak on the propane grill or hamburgers over the open fireplace.

Accent lighting on the wall, fireplace and hot tub, wall/post lights as well as area security lighting are controlled by you to create the most elegant and romantic outdoor experience.

There is an outdoor shower on the patio for you to rinse off before, or cool off after your hot tub experience.

Watch a cheerful fire burning in the fireplace on the patio, thru the patio doors, from the comfortable inclining queen bed.

Watch the sun go down in the west from the indoor Jacuzzi which is near the front windows in the main room.

The modern kitchen with granite countertops has stainless steel appliances, including a full range, microwave, toaster oven, Kuerig coffee maker and fridge/freezer.

Included in the rental is...

- guest use of the washer and dryer on the ground floor

- firewood for the outdoor fireplace

- unlimited incoming and outgoing calls to anywhere in the United States and Canada on the phone in the chalet

- free high speed internet (WIFI) by Comcast

For your safety and peace of mind, a fully automatic generator (power standby) unit is installed to provide full power to this property and all its amenities in the rare event of a power outage in the area.

About Terry & Bev Bauman

We have travelled to the Poconos, Tennessee, Costa Rica and other places internationally in search of and staying at nice couple's getaways that offer outdoor privacy with room to roam. We often wished there would be a place like this closer to home. The Private Hills Chalet is just that!

Terry & Bev Bauman purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Terry & Bev Bauman chose Berks County

We purchased this property because of the private setting, the view, the creek, the woods and the cozy A-frame cabin.

The close proximity to hiking trails, bird watching, bike trails make this good option for nature lovers.

Within 20 - 30 minutes guests can be at large markets like the Green Dragon on Fridays or upscale restaurants in the Reading area.

What makes this chalet unique

We like properties that have hot tubs that are not right up against a building (such as on a deck) but rather offer a view around, and are not visible from a road. That is what we achieved with the hot tub here. We also wanted an outdoor fireplace to offer the guests that ability to cook food over an open wood fire (crate provided), and snuggle in front of the fireplace on the double lounger after de-stressing in the hot tub.

We are working at developing trails through our woods and a 'spot' down by the creek for you to enjoy nature in privacy.

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was beautiful, clean and spacious. The landscaping and surrounding woods were stunning. We loved discovering the trail into the woods and watching all the critters (birds, squirrels, bats, salamanders, ect), throughout the weekend. There are a lot of bugs, but that's to be expected. We got a ton of use out of the back patio with the fireplace, grill and hot tub. We're definitely going back in the future! Bev and Terry were wonderful to work with.

We loved the setting and quiet secluded quaint little place. It is well furnished. The place was clean and neatly decorated. The hot tub on the patio is tops. We can recommend the place for anyone who wants to spend some time away from home. .Curvin n Grace

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun getting away from the world at this property. The property had several surprises that were amazing. This place is so romantic! You must book this property! We cooked all our meals outside at the outdoor fire pit and relaxed in the hot tub at night under the stars. This truly is my new favorite spot! We will be back again and again! Thanks so much for all the attention to detail!

I don't know what I can add that others haven't already said! But this place is just SO amazing! The special touches from the owners just add to the awesome ambiance of the chalet. The worst part, we had to leave. But I literally just rebooked it for next fall, as I can only imagine how beautiful it will be with the leaves changing colors, and how much more enjoyable the outdoor hot tub and fire place will be with a chill in the air! My motto for this place: "Relax, Recharge, Rekindle". Thank you for sharing this oasis!
