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 relax in the hot tub on the patio or explore the woods and walk along the creek.
Our mission is to provide a private, intimate setting for spouses to celebrate our Creator's design for marriage! According to His Word, that is one man and one woman for life.
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
- 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.
A total relaxing and beautiful getaway. The special details were above and beyond.
This chalet was something out of a movie. So much care was taken to make this a private and romantic getaway. Hats off the Terry and Bev for thinking of everything! Sitting in the hot tubs watching the birds in the bird feeder, cooking our steak and chicken on the grill, walking along the babbling brook, not seeing another human for an entire day! This was exactly what our marriage needed. Thank you so much!
Everything was perfect! As soon as we arrived, I knew we had made the right choice. The privacy will make you feel like you are the only ones for miles around, but the well stocked kitchen and beautiful surprise touches will make you feel welcomed and relaxed. The hot tub was a dream and if that is not enough, there is even a jacuzzi inside next to the faux-fireplace. There is a little trail which leads to a gorgeous swing by the river and even a massage table equipped with everything you need! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway (and its also close enough to Lancaster to keep your days busy.)
This place was absolutely perfect for a weekend getaway. The place was emaculate and cozy. There were so many lovely little touches like the water, and wine glasses, and coffee/tea and chocolates. We would come back here for sure. My only issue were some pamphlets on the vestibule when you walk in that were frankly not approprate and could really upset some guests. It is apparent that this is a rentor with strong Christian beliefs which is absolutely fine but not everyone who rents will know this or feel the same way. Pamphlets questioning homosexuality and divorce were quite offensive. And while I respect the owners own personal beliefs I recommend removing such materials out of respect for the beliefs of your guest whom you do not know.
Besides this, the property and hosts were absolutely amazing and we loved spending time there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our too short stay! Thanks so much for everything! Marvin and Michelle Enns
The place is so beautiful and well decorated and very secluded to spend that one on one time with your partner. We would definitely go back and recommend this to all couples.
The Private Hills Chalet is conveniently located on Texter Mountain near where Lancaster, Lebanon and Berks county meet.
