Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Basye-Bryce Mountain - Ridgetop Retreat

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps in beds

Come enjoy this beautiful, sunny chalet in the Bryce Four Seasons Resort in Basye, Virginia. The home is located just a short drive to the main lodge and ski lifts, as well as Lake Laura for fun spring and summer activities.

New for the 2014 holiday/ski season - Cable TV on two floors. With a gorgeous open floor plan, 3 bedrooms and 2 beautifully updated bathrooms, you will have plenty of space to relax and enjoy a quiet, secluded getaway. The main floor has a master bedroom with a queen bed, a master bathroom, living area with TV (DVD and VHS), two kitchen tables with seating for 8, and a fully equipped kitchen with granite and all new appliances. The lower level has two bedrooms, one with a full-size bed and the second with two twins. The basement living area has a futon sofa, foosball/game table, TVs with DVD and VHS. A separate covered entrance to the lower level is perfect after a day of skiing to take your boots off and hang up the extra heavy winter coats. The heating throughout keeps the home cozy warm, with baseboard heating in every room, and a mini-spit on each level.

Set on a quiet street, the home also boasts a wrap around deck with screened-in porch where you can enjoy a quiet wooded view year round with wonderful breezes, as well as winter views of the mountain ridge. Bryce Resort offers plenty of options for entertainment -- skiing, tubing, 18 hole golf/mini golf, hiking, zip line, rock wall, mountain bike park, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, Bryce Lodge and restaurant, Copper Kettle Pub, local vineyard tours and more!

Lovely getaway in the woods!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house for the July 4th long weekend. We were a family of 6 adults and kids. Apart from a few minor issues, our experience was good and pleasant. I will definitely recommend it to someone who is looking for a quiet house and clean house. I am not sure if not having WIFI is a plus or a minus. Cell phone connectivity is good.. so, as long as you have data, you should be fine.

Pros:

Kristan (owner) is very responsive and easy to work with. We booked the house just 1 day before our checkin date but we still were able to make it.

The house was clean and well maintained.

The house is probably one or two by lanes from the main local road. So, its very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle.

All basic amenities like toilet paper, dish soap etc were provided and has all other dishes you need. They were clean too.

Our security deposits and other refunds were promptly paid back.

Cons (to us, but not necessarily a problem with the house itself):

There were no blinds on any of the doors or windows in the living area. That interfered with privacy a bit in the evenings when all of us were home & dark outside.

Main door is a sliding glass door. Its not a regular opaque wooden door. I am not sure if it was designed like this for a reason. We would have preferred a regular wooden door.

When we checked in, it felt a bit stuffed up 'cus it may not have been recently used but it was nice and pleasant after we opened the doors & windows to let air in.

There is no grill.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The comments will be helpful as we are continually thinking about ways to improve our rental home. I apologize if the home seemed closed up upon your arrival, but as you thought, with only one day notice, we were unable to open up the home as we normally do for the guests. We hope you will stay with us again in the future.

Very comfortable and clean

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long weekend in this home to celebrate New Year's and it was really very nice. The house is extremely comfortable, clean and well-maintained. The owner was very responsive and accommodating throughout the booking process and you can tell that they have pride in the up-keep and quality maintenance of their home. We were two families with school-aged children and the house offered many games (air hockey, mini-billiards, foosball, Wii, board games, etc) so the kids were well entertained. The kitchen is very clean and updated - we are a family that really enjoys cooking and I felt very comfortable cooking a few big holiday meals in this kitchen. (If you are cooking for more than 4 people, however, you probably need to bring larger pots for big meals and any specialty cooking utensils and tools). We were bummed that the fireplace was out of order and that we were not able to use it, but besides that, we had a great weekend -- despite there being no snow on the mountain!

New Year's Eve

  • 5 of 5

Kristan is very accommodating, and the property is very clean. Thank you for the cable! The home offers many games and movies for use. New Year's Eve was a lot of fun and the resort even had fireworks at 11:45 pm until midnight. What a show! We had a great time!

My husband and I rented this property with our daughter and son-in-law. We thoroughly enjoy all the accommodations. House is adorable and we enjoyed using the porch. Nice touches and very clean. Property owner was wonderful to work with and very accommodating.

Great weekend! Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

I'm happy to highly recommend this beautiful home at Bryce. Everything from start to finish was perfect! 6 of us slept comfortably and we truly felt like we were at a home away from home. The property was very clean, provided many amenities, and the owner was welcoming and very helpful through the process.

We will definitely return!
