Romantic Getaway in nearly 10 Private Wooded Acres on Texter Mountain w/ hot tub

Overview

About the property

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

You will find this mountain rural 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 nearby 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 relax in the hot tub on the patio or 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 counter tops has stainless steel appliances, including a full range, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig 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

- 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.

WEEKEND RESERVATION POLICY... (effective for stays after May 1, 2017)

To give priority to guests that want a reservation that includes a Saturday and Sunday night,

we will not accept reservation requests that would have a Sunday check-in or check-out until 45 days prior to that stay.

Example: Someone wants to book a stay for Friday & Saturday night (arrive Friday, July 14 and leave Sunday, July 16). We would not accept that reservation until June 1 to allow time for others who may want to book 3 nights (arriving Friday and leaving Monday) or others who may want to book 2 nights (arriving Saturday and leaving Monday).

NOTE: It is over $100 less to book a Saturday & Sunday night than a Friday & Saturday night. (Because Sunday night is a weekday rate)

The reason we want to avoid guest changeovers on Sundays is because we believe Sunday is the Lord's day and a day of rest. So we and the housekeepers go to church, go visiting and relax on Sundays.

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 Robesonia

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 to immerse in God's creation.

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.

Beautiful, romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely stunning/beautiful!! Terry and Bev did an amazing job on this place! The house was spotless, very, very clean!!! The hot tub and jacuzzi were very clean! The home is very private, peaceful, and quiet. Terry and Bev go above and beyond to provide you with everything that is needed! Every little detail is thought of to provide the best romantic, peaceful, relaxing, and refreshing getaway!! I can't say it enough how beautiful this place is! Our last day there, we saw two deer as we were sitting in the hot tub - that was really neat to see!! Will definitely return and will be recommending this place to others!! Thank you Terry and Bev for you generosity and for making this little getaway so perfect!!

Cozy, Romantic, and Welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the pictures do not do this place justice. This is such a cute and cozy little Chalet. The romantic music and aroma when you first walk in just puts you in a relaxed state of mind almost immediately. The back deck (whether you soak in the hot tub or sit by the fire) is the perfect spot to connect or reconnect with your loved one. You really feel at home here, everything in the fully stocked kitchen really is setup that all you have to bring is your food and drinks. But they even have lots of coffee and tea there and available to you. I can't think of any place more perfect for a romantic little getaway with someone you love!

Absolutely breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We were amazed at all the extra special touches that were provided. Everything from snacks to robes. The chalet is super clean and tastefully decorated with love. Words can not describe the patio. Everything from the stone fireplace to the hot tub. Very relaxing and private. Definitely will be back. Thank you for sharing.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! The chalet has everything a couple would want on a romantic getaway. Beautiful decor and so clean. Terry and Bev were amazing ! We came in a snow storm and couldn't get our Hyundai Sonata up the mountain.... Bev not only came to get us in her 4 wheel drive, but got us in the chalet way before check in. Terry and Bev were wonderful hosts and so accommodating! We already booked another stay ... We loved it!! Fran and Bob
