Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chalet in Sisters - Caroline's Chalet in Sisters

One of a kind 2 bd retreat close to town on 2 acres of pine and aspen groves

Caroline's Chalet is the quintessential retreat for your Central Oregon vacation. This charming and authentic 2 bedroom lodgepole pine chalet is situated on 2 acres of Pine trees and Aspen groves in a quiet wooded neighborhood three miles from the historic town of Sisters providing easy access to golf courses and endless outdoor activities, summer and winter. For the golfers, Aspen Lakes, Black Butte and Eagle Crest are within 15 miles of the Chalet.

For the avid fisherman or fisher woman, birder and hiker, the blue-ribbon native trout waters of the Metolius River offer unparalleled scenic beauty and relaxation. This is the enchanted area of explorers Lewis and Clark offering miles and miles of rivers, lakes, forest, and stunning mountain peaks. Just 5 minutes from the charming town of Sisters, you are free to explore the delightful, unique shops and enjoy delicious restaurants and plenty of live music and seasonal festivals.

The Chalet is 20 minutes to HooDoo, just 30 minutes west of Bend, and only an hour to Mt. Bachelor, as well as miles and miles of cross country skiing and snowmobiling within 10 minutes of the cabin!

This is an ideal destination for families, couples and small groups who desire comfortable accommodations away from busy cities, but surrounded by multiple activities with lively town life easily accessible.

Enjoy a movie or a game of cards with family in the large, open loft entertainment area, or cozy up near the fire in the wood burning stove nestled in a stunning lava-rock hearth with a good book. Gather with family and friends in the dining room and cook an unforgettable meal in the fully-equipped kitchen. Relax and unwind on the large outdoor covered deck and patio that overlooks a natural area filled with birds, butterflies, and deer…a great place to relax with afternoon wine, famous brews, cheeses, fresh bread or pastries, and chocolate fudge, especially after an adventurous day of activities. Sit on this deck, rain, shine or snow, enjoy its peacefulness, and stay dry.

Caroline’s Chalet offers new, high quality beds with luxurious, high thread count European style linens and down duvets. The home is equipped with free wireless internet, essential cable TV, DVD, games, books, and so much more for you to discover!  

The charming town of Sisters is noted for its varied events and festivals such as the Sisters Folk Festival and the world famous Sisters Quilt Show, and the Biggest Little Rodeo Show in the World. Hike through many State and National Parks to see astonishing vistas or stroll through meadows and mingle with nature all day. Swim at Camp Sherman, only 15 minutes away, and dip into pools in a bucolic mountain setting, or bring a picnic. Best of all, meet the friendly faces  of the local community…at the events and festivals, and at the museums, restaurants, brew pubs, and boutiques.

In the afternoon when you return to Caroline’s Chalet, unwind on the side porch with the best ice cold well-water in the area right from the Cascade Mountains, sip a glass of wine on the deck or patio, share days' adventures with family and friends, play a game of horseshoes, relax, BBQ and suspend time for awhile.

About Caroline Matz

Doug and I have wanted a home in the woods and we were so glad we found The Chalet. Doug has been a builder most of his life and I was a teacher for 35 years. In retirement, we are enjoying outdoor activities while working on maintaining and updating our homes. We want to provide a one of a kind vacation experience that allows guests to feel truly immersed in their destination! The unique charm of Sisters surrounded by the extraordinary natural beauty of Central Oregon inspires us to create comfortable and exciting accommodations that accentuate the authentic, down-to-earth Central Oregon lifestyle.

There's no doubt that a good night's sleep makes for a fantastic vacation! But what makes a vacation truly remarkable, truly memorable is when you get to experience the authenticity of a place. To feel its 'vibe' and know it's people. To live for a weekend, several days, a week or more... as the locals live. To feel truly immersed in your destination.

We are passionate about our community and hope to share with you the magic of all that Sisters and the surrounding area has to offer!

Caroline Matz purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Caroline Matz chose Central Oregon

My husband, Doug, and I chose this custom log home for its uniqueness, its setting and the size of the property. It was built by a father and his two sons, which made it special. A lot of special touches were included in its building. He was a cabinet-maker and built the cabinets as well. All space was utilized. Inside, the lava rock fireplace is spectacular, absolutely breathtaking, and does the job of heating the home (even though it has an effective heat pump and air cooling.) It is in Crossroads subdivision in the Pine and Aspen trees. The Chalet is centered on a knoll in the middle of 2 acres, so there is separation for privacy, yet you can easily say hi to neighbors walking by. The sun rises and shines through the loft into the cabin, shines on the kitchen and living room side of the cabin and sets on the front porch. There are 4 hiking trails out to the Sisters Trail Alliance which extends through the Deschutes National Forest. We fell in love with the property!

What makes this chalet unique

The position of the building on the site is perfect to receive the sunlight throughout the day. The sun rises at the back door and in the window of the loft bedroom, travels along the living room side of the house, and then sets at the front of the house. The Chalet gets sunlight all day.

The lava-rock fireplace is awe-inspiring...you will see it when you arrive, and hopefully use it when the weather gets cold!!

The porch and outdoor living area is so special, you can choose any spot you desire to settle in. Watch the deer graze in the yards, squirrels play and gather nuts, birds eating seeds. Sit on the western swing...and relax.

The unique charm of Sisters surrounded by the extraordinary natural beauty of Central Oregon inspires us to create comfortable and exciting accommodations that accentuate the authentic, down-to-earth Central Oregon lifestyle.

There's no doubt that a good night's sleep makes for a fantastic vacation! But what makes a vacation truly remarkable, truly memorable is when you get to experience the authenticity of a place. To feel its 'vibe' and know it's people. To live for a weekend, several days, a week or more... as the locals live. To feel truly immersed in your destination.

Great 2 night stay

  • 5 of 5

We chose the cabin based on location and other positive reviews and it was the perfect choice. From the linens to the floor, everything was very clean. Appliances etc. were all in working order. It truly felt like we were staying at "our" cabin.

Regarding location, it was a perfect blend of city and mountain. We could be in Bend with a short drive and in the mountains within 15 minutes.

Directions were straight forward and the owner was very responsive to questions and our deposit was returned quickly.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cabin for one month & enjoyed every moment of my visit. Caroline is a responsive, caring & attentive host. The location is perfect for exploring all the interesting adventures around Sisters. I especially loved

the European bedding & the comfortable top of the line mattress. I would highly recommend this home to anyone. I have already booked for next year. Thank you for everything Caroline.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We rent quite a few homes and this was the best experience to date. Everything was just as you stated. No surprises here. We loved everything about your home, and will certainly return at some point. Thanks so much. We loved traveling to Camp Sherman for dinner, as well as going in to Sisters several times. It just felt like coming home, after being away during the day.

Peaceful getaway near town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this terrific log home for two months in the summer of 2016 and have already re-booked to do the same in the summer of 2017. Quiet and comfortable two-story log cabin set on several beautiful acres in the Crossroads Development appx. 3 miles from the town of Sisters. This development is set on the road to the McKenzie Pass, a must-see destination for both bicyclists and auto tourists. Biking or hiking into town on a forest trail is easy and fun - this trail also directly connects to the Peterson Ridge Trail. You will never run out of things to do in the Sisters area, though sitting on the back porch of this house and doing nothing is also worthwhile! House is very well stocked, including wood for wood-burning stove which we used even in June and July (one of the advantages of this area is the terrific weather - sunny and warm during the day, very cool to cold at night, which is great for sleeping). Love this place.

Beautiful log home near Sisters

  • 5 of 5

This property was accurately represented on the website. It's a spacious log home in a quiet neighborhood about three miles from Sisters. It was easy to work with the owners--they responded quickly when I made the reservation and when I requested information. Their directions to the property made it easy to find. My sister and I were attending the Sister's outdoor quilt show. This property was conveniently located on the west side of town near the high school where the lectures that we attended were held. By staying so close to Sisters, we were able to go into town early the morning of the quilt show and get a good parking spot to watch the volunteers hang the quilts. The home was comfortable and clean, and the beds were comfortable. We did not cook meals (too many great restaurants in town), so I cannot rate the kitchen other than it appeared to be well equipped. The outdoor space was great. We loved the swing--it had a unique western look, and was very well constructed (would love to know where to get one of these). The area near the fireplace was a comfy area to regroup and plan the next day's activities. Unfortunately, we did not see any deer. Would stay here again.

Too short weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two boys and I were in Sisters for a lacrosse tournament and stayed at Caroline's Chalet. We loved it! My boys loved the rustic-looking log cabin, and my husband and I really appreciated the nice touches inside. It is an extremely comfortable cabin, roomy for the four of us (and our dog!), and I loved walking our dog through the neighborhood -- so peaceful and pretty. The weather was beautiful, and I would love to come back sometime when we aren't spending all our time at lacrosse games to really enjoy the area! Thank you Caroline -- your cabin is lovely.
