About the property

Beautiful, Well-appointed Lakefront Chalet; Dock, Firepit, Paddle Boat, Beach!

As seen on HGTV! Located in a gated community, this year-round, 1300 sqft child-friendly chalet has two bedrooms, a sleeping loft, and two full bathrooms. It is newly updated, warmly decorated and well-appointed with all the comforts of home. This chalet sleeps 8 comfortably, and is perfect for a family getaway, a couples retreat, or a girls (or guys!) getaway. There is a king size bed in the master bedroom, a queen size bed in the 2nd main floor bedroom, and four twin beds (2 bunkbeds) in the loft area. A portable crib is also available.

Located on a 2.2 acre, secluded, wooded lot, our chalet offers guests both privacy and solitude. The lake is fully stocked, there is a brand new dock, and a sandy beach was recently added! Guests can enjoy the stone, woodburning fireplace, relax on the wrap-around deck, or take the paddle boat and kayaks out on the lake to explore. The chalet is very private but conveniently located near many of the amenities, including four beaches found on Lake Aspen. At the larger lakes, guests can play in the sand or spend the day swimming. At the chalet, enjoy a fire next to the lake (firewood is provided), or fish from the private lakeside dock. Guests can also relax on the deck or hammock with a nice glass of wine or a book. While the beautiful, wooded 2.2 acres of this chalet encourage you to unwind and unplug, you'll still find it complete with a flat screen TV (a digital HD antennae provides all local channels in full HD), DVD player, MHL capability, and a home theater system. There is an additional TV/DVD player in the loft area for the kids. Our chalet also has excellent cell phone reception!

Our guests have access to all of the amenities and activities at Innsbrook. With over 100 lakes on 7500 acres, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy at Innsbrook. Some of the sports activities include an 18-hole golf course with Clubhouse/Restaurant, outdoor swimming pool with new recreation complex (including guest laundry facilities, fitness center and playground), lighted tennis courts, basketball, and sand volleyball (within walking distance). There is also an outdoor chess board and shuffleboard. Guests can also go horseback riding, rent a variety of boats, and rent bikes and games as well. In addition, there are many scheduled activities such as fun-runs, bike rides, and an annual triathlon. Innsbrook also offers guests the Summer Breeze concerts at the new Outdoor Amphitheater (visit www.innsbrook-resort.com/community/concerts for a listing of concerts). Please note that the outdoor pool is open from Memorial Weekend to Labor Day Weekend.

Other outdoor activities include miles of hiking trails, horseback riding, 100 lakes for fishing and swimming with 14 beaches and swim docks. Guests may also enjoy the Historic Log Cabin (newly renovated by the Innsbrook Historical Society) and birdwatching (Innsbrook is an Audubon Wildlife Preserve).

Other Innsbrook activities include holiday events (such as the 4th of July fireworks), live outdoor summer concerts and movies, children's camps, art shows, religious services, and concerts performed by world-class musicians. The resort also offers a buffet for the holidays, including Thanksgiving and New Year's Eve! Every time of year is a beautiful time to visit Innsbrook. Don't forget about a romantic Valentine weekend getaway!

Come and see our newly expanded deck with gorgeous lake views! The kitchen has also been expanded and completely updated. It offers full size, stainless steel appliances, new cabinets, and a gorgeous custom cherry counter.

Amenities included with this chalet include all linens, paper goods, a well stocked pantry with condiments, beach towels, life jackets, pillow/mattress protectors, movies, dishes, kitchen items, hair dryers, gas grill, games, books, fishing gear, magazines, beach items - everything you need for your stay! (Please visit the "amenities" link for a detailed description of all that is included). There is also a set of complimentary golf clubs available for guest use.

About Erika Russina

Our family is from West St. Louis County, and we have been enjoying Innsbrook for years as guests or with friends. As former renters, we want to provide our guests with the combined best experiences that we have had during our stays at the resort.

Erika Russina purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Erika Russina chose Missouri

We chose this property after several years of searching. It offered solitude, privacy, and 2.2 acres of wooded lakefront and all of the space we needed for our family of 6. It was truly a moment of knowing that it was "the one" the minute we saw it. Innsbrook is a beautiful, wooded, 7000 acre resort with lakes, hiking trails, a pool, fitness center, outdoor activities, concerts, restaurants, wildlife - including a host of outdoor activities (golf, tennis, fishing, volleyball, basketball, horseback riding, etc).

What makes this chalet unique

This Chalet Has Been Completely Updated, Including the Bathrooms, Kitchen, Flooring, Fireplace, Etc. It Also Has Nearly All Brand-new Furniture, Dishes, Kitchen Items, Towels, Electronics, Etc. It is Well-appointed But Still Comfortable Enough to Relax and Unwind.

Perfect Way to start the New Year....

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location to spend NYE with close friends and family, the Chalet sits on top of wooded ridge overlooking a small tranquil pond.

While winter outside, the charming inside was so warm, cozy & comfortable (as well as spotless!)

We watched deer and birds from the deck, took a couple of hikes and loved the two outdoor fire pits and the indoor fireplace.

We really enjoyed hanging out on the pond in the daytime & into the evening. Path lights down to the pond twinkled at night-very enchanting!

We were able to see the Lodge’s holiday fireworks from the road at the top of the ridge…a perfect way to enter the New Year.

Our first visit here was really lovely and we absolutely had a five-star stay. One of the main topics of conversation over the weekend was how

much we all wanted to return to the chalet again and enjoy it when we can play in the water!

Erika is a talented hostess who has thought of everything! Kudos to her for running a class act-it’s clear she cares very much about the guest experience

and we had a great one! We can’t wait to come back!

The ideal setting!

  • 5 of 5

We were VERY pleased with this chalet! It was spacious enough for five 55+ college girlfriends to coexist comfortably, and it was wonderfully located in a beautiful wooded area. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen appointed well enough for meals in, and the fireplace made it all very cozy. It was all neat and clean as a pin, and some of the added touches were much appreciated. The location was perfect for day-trips into St. Charles for shopping, Hermann for checking out the wineries, or Washington for a dinner out. The owner was very easy to work with and provided responses/answers quite quickly. However, though this would not reduce the number of stars we give our stay, we did have three small issues while there. First, the door key box did not work well for us, and we ended up being visited by Innsbrook security because we did not turn off the alarm system properly. We had problems locking up at the end of our stay as well. Secondly, the fitted sheets on both of the larger beds would NOT stay on the mattresses; the ladies in those beds would awaken during the night wadded up in fitted sheet. Third, the refrigerator did not contain an icemaker. There were icetrays, but with 5 adult women, the ice went pretty fast. We would have appreciated a head's up in the listing description so that we could have brought a bag of ice with us. Regardless, I would recommend this chalet to anyone looking for a place to relax, refresh and reconnect with family or friends - and there is plenty to do whatever the season! We couldn't have asked for a better setting for a girls' weekend away :D

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! The lock box for the door key does require that the code be entered in sequence and then the top button pushed down to release the key. You do repeat the sequence to return the keys, but always have to turn off the silent alarm before unlocking. I'll be sure the directions are clear in the instructions that were mailed. If the alarm is tripped, security will visit to make sure that everything is ok. The beds were recently upgraded with mattress toppers, so some of the sheets may have a tighter fit than the new ones. We do have plenty of extras in the housekeeping cabinet and guests are welcome to use what is needed. Please call or text with any concerns and we are happy to provide anything that is needed. In the next few weeks the kitchen is being increased in size and remodeled to accommodate a new, full-size stainless oven and a refrigerator with an ice maker (woohoo!) We hope you will be back soon to try it out and you can also check the website for updated pictures soon. Thanks again for your feedback!

Beautiful setting, very private

  • 4 of 5

Suited our needs for 4 senior women. Couldn't enjoy the dock due to one of us unable to walk the path. Otherwise everything was great. Well stocked kitchen, beds were comfortable, bathrooms were clean. Really enjoyed the large good quality towels.would like to come back.

Amazing Property!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great trip! Our family just came back from a two day trip to stay at this Innsbrook Chalet and we were more than impressed!

Erika was wonderful to work with. It started with her kindly sending me an e-mail the morning of our arrival that the property had been cleaned early and we could check in anytime before the 3:00 pm check-in. We were able to get there by noon so it almost felt like we had an extra day. No other property owner had done that before so it was a very thoughtful and meaningful thing to do.

As soon as we arrived, we were stunned by the beauty of the location, area, trees, water, and chalet. It was such a cute and charming chalet and it felt very intimate and cozy. The chalet itself has been updated and everything feels very new and clean. We were highly impressed. We walked down to the lake and it was just gorgeous. This is not a lake that is connected to the main lake so it's almost a small personal lake with 6 or 7 chalets around it. When we stayed there, there were no other people at the other chalets but we stayed during the week so I am guessing it's probably busier on a weekend. The private "beach" was so much fun for my son and we loved taking the paddleboat around the lake over and over again...

We enjoyed a hike through the woods as well as many fires roasting hot dogs and s'mores. It was the perfect combination for people that like being outdoors but also a clean and comfortable place to sleep once they return. The chalet was incredibly spacious. You could easily fit two families and the loft area upstairs was great for kids. I was so happy to see all of the special things they added to make the stay more comfortable...kids toys, movies, games, etc. They really had thought of everything.

We were so glad we got a chance to stay at this property and can't wait to go back again. We have discovered our favorite Innsbrook gem! Thanks Erika!

Exactly as described - but even better!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 young children & I stayed here for a final summer vacation. This chalet was perfect! It was super clean (and I'm a clean freak :), well kept & extremely comfortable. I usually have issues sleeping in beds besides my own but not these ones. We loved having so much space to spread out & the the little details like games & magazines were awesome. The kitchen is fully stocked & had everything we needed - even ziplock bags & tinfoil! We loved our own little beach & had so much fun in the kayaks. Coffee on the deck & deer spotting in the mornings were my personal favorite moments. We can't wait to stay here again soon!
