Great funky and well equipped old school chalet

  • 4 of 5

We just spent a fantastic long weekend with a family group of 8. They'd had some issues with the previous guests leaving the shower running which caused myriad problems for the caretakers. It was a nuisance, but clearly not their fault and they did everything they could to resolve things quickly. The owner and the caretakers were on top of things, ensuring repairs were made quickly and that we had everything we needed for our stay. As other reviewers have noted, the trash compactor is an issue and the owner said it should be replaced. It is an older chalet, yet amazingly well equipped. You could cook your Christmas dinner with no problem! The views are spectacular and the location handy for the old part of the resort. The stove's hieroglyphics are a little confusing, we figured it out but may have been running on convection as things were pretty hot. Loved the fire and the many candles. Quiet, and comfortable, we would certainly recommend this spot for a cosy stay. You'll have everything you need.

Mount Washington Snow Chalet.

  • 4 of 5

Overall an easy place to stay, just don't expect modern and fancy! We had our dogs with us, so that made our visit wonderful as we never had to worry about them harming anything, due to the age of the furnishings and interior.

Gorgeous views, and the wood stove & supply of wood was a big plus!

The chalet is quite dated and old, but was perfect for our 2 night stay.

There are few items which need to be in place: kitchen garbage can (the compactor there does not work and we were told by the caretaker to please not use it under any circumstances!) so we had to hang a garbage bag, and then take it out a few times a day. A bin for recycling bottles, plastics etc. would be great, as we landed up throwing out things we knew could be recycled, simply because there was no where to keep them. The garbage can outside the unit was easily accessible, and we used it freely, but then when we went to leave we realized the previous guests had placed bottles in it, and so we had to go through 2 days of garbage and dog poo bags, to separate garbage from bottles! So clearer marking of a garbage bin and bottle bin would be helpful.

Remember also while there are 2 bathrooms there is only 1 shower, so since we were 6 people it meant taking turns but since it was a relaxed weekend trip no worries there.

The owner was very helpful with out booking and check-in process, and the caretaker was also very helpful when we needed anything, as she lives in the village and so could easily bring us anything we were missing.

Would definitely stay again.

Thanks to Margaret and Natasha!

Sauna was a nice touch

  • 5 of 5

We had a lot of room for everyone. 2 very large washrooms were a bonus. Comfortable beds and an owner that was willing to help at every step and answer all our questions. Tip! the running man on the stove was the start button, that took a few heads together to figure out.

we will book this stay again. It is ski in and out but not without effort and being able to know where it is.

Wonderful location, roomy, well-equipped

  • 4 of 5

We were thoroughly pleased with the chalet. It's a big roomy standalone building with great views. The kitchen was fully equipped--even had coffee filters for the drip machine. And there were board games, videos, music, firewood for the stove. bedrooms were comfy; everything clean and tidy, and an easy walk to the lifts.

Owner was responsive when we had questions.

Lovely Chalet in Beautiful Alpine Village

  • 5 of 5

My group of four friends spent four days here in September while hiking in Strathcona Provincial Park. This chalet is well appointed with every convenience from laundry and dishwasher to jacuzzi tub and sauna. The views from the wrap around deck were spectacular. A fully equipped kitchen and dining room can easily accommodate larger groups. The owner is very pleasant and helpful. I would definitely recommend this quiet, private chalet and hope to return again.

Ski-out was right down the road and Margaret was very accommodating when we needed help. Well worth it!
