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 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)
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
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.
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.
We spent our 39th anniversary in this delightful property fully enjoying the calm and serene environment.
Since the weather was nice we were able to fully enjoy the beautiful outdoor area with fireplace, grill and most of all the relaxation of the outdoor hot tub.
Because of the other reviews, we came with high expectations which were more than met. It is a lovely place in a lovely area of Pennsylvania!! We were very happy with our stay!!
Highly recommend. Great place for a romantic getaway.
Overall, our experience was nothing but absolutely positive. The property is beautiful and completely private. The outdoor hot tub and firepit were our favorite features, out of the many that we enjoyed. We highly recommend as a very romantic getaway and look forward to going back soon!!!
We had a very good time at private hills. The cabin was very clean and felt inviting and the lights were on and the music was playing. We especially enjoyed the fire place, hot tub, and the swing down by the creek. Thankyou so much for the sparkling grape juice. Jacuzzi was fun as well. The massage room was a nice touch! Overall I have nothing at all to complain about and would like to stay there again!
Peaceful and romantic, clean with special attention to detail! This place is a winner, thru and thru!!!
We absolutely enjoyed our stay here at the chalet! It was beautiful, warm, and cozy. The owners really know how to make you feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door! We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time!!!
The Private Hills Chalet is conveniently located on Texter Mountain near where Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks county meet.
