Beautiful, cozy place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this chalet this weekend. Had a really great time. This place is really beautiful, cozy and well maintained. So many amenities and the owners left us little treats, which was a really nice touch! During our stay, workers came to work outside on the hot tub. The owners notified us in advance and even sent their son with a treat. ( Which was very nice of them to do ). It is close to many attractions (Seven Springs, Hidden Valley, etc.) Great place to stay for any season! We are looking forward to returning again! Thanks, Andy and Joanne

There are not 4 queen size beds there..in fact there weren't any that size. One bottle of propane to operate all outdoor fire pits and grill. Was told we would receive our cleaning deposit back on check out day. Called the owner as instructed to check things out and issue our refund but she said she couldn't make it so would just mail us a check. Contacted her 3 times over 6 weeks and finally received refund after letting her know I was going to take action to have it returned. 2 of the 3 bedrooms referred to have no door. One is a loft, the other is the basement/ bar area with futons. None have queen size beds. The upstairs bathroom also does not have a door. No privacy for a group.

Relaxation 101

  • 5 of 5

Just what we were looking for, a little R/R plus some skiing for the kidos! The only single word that can sum it up is AWESOME! There was plenty of extras that they left out such as coffee, danishes, and little snacks for everyone. Plenty things to do nearby such as skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, hiking, biking, and much more. I would recommend this vacation spot for just about anyone! We had a great time! Try it out for yourselves and you will be writing a great review too! Thanks Andy/Joanne, that was definitely one for the book!

All year round get away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I (and other members of extended family) have been visiting the Chalet in all different seasons, for many years now.

If you're looking for a proper get-away, this is it. Turn the phones off, enjoy a good movie and cook your own favorite meal. This is isolation when you want it, but close enough to many things to do.

It truly leaves us feeling relaxed each time we get to go.

A Cozy Place in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

The Tall Cedar Chalet is a wonderful hidden secret near 7Springs. My husband and I make sure to take a few days a year relax in this little gem. There is plenty to do in the area, but some visits we just like to stay in and get away from the hustle of life. My recommendation to anyone looking for a great place to stay is to check out the tall cedar chalet, you won't be disappointed.

The real deal chalet

  • 5 of 5

We went to this chalet over Thanksgiving weekend. This is a real ski chalet. Very cozy. there is a cute corner store at the bottom of the street for quick items such as bread, milk, etc and a gas station. The chalet was easy to find and close to Seven Springs resort. The owner is very nice and accommodating. It rained during of visit but so what, it was relaxing. We do plan to go again during snow season. The sleeping was comfortable with 7 adults and a baby. The bathrooms are beautiful. We mostly hung out in the lower level bar area which is nice if you want to call it a nite and go to bed the others can still entertain themselves in the lower level where you won't be disturbed. There is two refrigerators, one small one in the kitchen and another in the lower bar which is more than accommodating. It is beautiful in the evening when it all lights up. The chalet was clean and maintained. The security deposit was refunded promptly as we took care of the Chalet as if it was our own..Thank you Andy, your a nice person!
