Martin Sibling Reunion

  • 5 of 5

For 14 years my husbands siblings and spouses have gotten together for a "sibling" reunion. This was our 15th reunion and we absolutely loved the Chalet. There were 11 of us that came this year and we loved the Chalet because there were enough beds/bedrooms that each couple could have their own bedroom and the kitchen/dining room/living rooms were large, roomy and open which allowed us to all sit together and visit. We spent a lot of time on the wrap around porch talking and enjoying the quiet. We have stayed in several homes over the past 15 years but the accommodations for the bedrooms here were outstanding. Thank you Krisha for everything. We would come here again. The Martins

Met all of our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We found the chalet to be very clean and comfortable. We cooked every breakfast and dinner and found the kitchen well equipped. The hot tub was a joy. The beds were comfortable.

Working with Krisha was very easy...from reservation through the deposit refund. A positive experience in all respects.

Couldn't ask for anything better!

Beautiful, open, and large home with a very accommodating owner who keeps communication lines open at all times. The amenities were outstanding and location (2 minutes from Walmart!) was second to none. Highly recommended!!

Good place for the family to meet. Very nice area. Walmart is only two minutes away. Plenty of room and space for everyone. Large deck overlooking the pond was great.

Nice place but too many rules

  • 2 of 5

We arrived at the Hale Chalet to find an entire binder of rules set out on the counter. I have stayed at many rentals similar to this and this is the longest list of rules I've ever seen. The first couple pages were normal items, like how to put the trash out when you leave. Then there were several more pages on the detailed rules of staying in the cabin along with the price list of how much they would charge you if they found you broke any of these rules. One rule said that if they "found any evidence" of food or drink in the bedrooms you would be charged. The house itself was very nice, good ac flow and plenty of hot water. But I didn't feel like I could relax the whole time we were there because I was worried we were going to accidentally do something wrong and be charged. We were there with our whole family, including several children for my parent's 40th anniversary celebration. We needed a big place because there are 20 of us. My parents are missionaries and not home very often, and when they are we don't usually get to be with our whole family, because we all live far apart. We chose the Hale Chalet for its bedrooms, space, and because it was a good central location for all of the siblings to travel to. Sadly none of us felt we could relax and enjoy each other's company while we were there.
