About Suzanne Falces

I am an Interior Designer and I built this, my dream home, in Shady Cove, OR., after several years of widowhood in Tiburon, Ca. The house was completed in 2011, and I have lived in the house since then. I would love you to share its beauty and functionality.

Suzanne Falces purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Suzanne Falces chose Shady Cove

My late husband and I owned a vacation home in this area in the '90s, and traveled here frequently from the Bay Area before selling it to friends. When he passed away, I wanted to live in a quiet and beautiful setting in a small town with all of the necessities, and the spot where I built my house fitted this description. I had friends here, and the outdoor activities available also appealed to me. The opportunity to build this contemporary log home with so many great details was a wonderful challenge.

What makes this chalet unique

The Main House has a wood-burning River Rock FP with rocks gathered from this property during excavation. It is a replica of the FP at Crater Lake Lodge. The back of the FP is in the Master BR and has a vent-free, catalytic gas FP. There is a Gourmet Kitchen, with Wolf and Subzero Appliances, Granite in countertops and splashes, Custom Lighting, on demand hot water, and many exquisite details. The house also has Custom Lighting throughout, Theater Room with 70' Flat Screen TV and Surround Sound in Loft above Great Room, and 2 additional Flat Screen TV's, in Master Bedroom and Living Room, Office, Reading Alcove, Bunk Room, W/D, AC, WiFi, and gorgeous hardwood floors. The 1200 sq. ft. deck has Dining Table, Barbecue, Refrigerator, Seating Area, 93 Jet Hot Tub, and access to all rooms. Two-car Garage.

Beautiful Property, Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful stay at Suzanne's Bella Chalet. She has created a magnificent home that is luxurious and yet cozy. It's so wonderful being there, you hardly want to leave! Suzanne was so kind and helpful during our stay, an excellent hostess. There was everything (and much more) needed for our stay: access to a chef-inspired kitchen, laundry, parking, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, deck with views and hot tub, lovely yard, the list can go on and on! I would recommend this lovely home to anyone and I can not wait to go back in the future - thank you, Suzanne!!

Fantastic home for a Thanksgiving family get together

  • 5 of 5

This was more than a house, it was a vacation destination. Suzanne was wonderful, she had the table set for our Thanksgiving dinner when we arrived and warm welcoming fires in the fireplaces. The kitchen was gourmet and well stocked. We prepared Thanksgiving dinner for 9 and there was plenty of space in the kitchen for multiple cooks.

We lounged in the hot tub on the cool evenings and the stars were amazing.

Shady Cove store was within walking distance and well stocked.

Everyone had a great time and it will be a Thanksgiving to remember.

Very nice, great location spacious but a bit pricey

  • 4 of 5

Folks had a great time. We likely will be back but may look for something a bit less pricey. Our deposit has not yet been returned, it has been over a week now.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your Review. I am disappointed that you gave it 4 Stars, as all of my other Reviews over the past seven years, save one, and yours, have been 5 Stars. Additionally, it appears that your Tour Guide rented my home through VRBO and then provided pricing for his private Fishing Trip to his clients. I was paid through his agreement with VRBO, which was anything but “pricey”, but was at a Winter Discount Rate. My rates are available to all through my Listing 429511 with VRBO, so I suggest that you might check these rates and see if they were what you were charged by your tour guide. I understand you had extras such as a private, live in Chef, which would definitely be “pricey”, and for which I received no benefit. I am sorry that this happened to you and to me, if I am correct in assuming that you were charged rates using my home and benefitting the tour operator. If there is a next time, please check my rates privately before booking with any additional operator. Please also call me to clarify any questions. The level of secrecy demanded by your tour guide included not letting me know who was staying in my home. This was insulting and made communication difficult. Good luck to you in your future trips with VRBO. Sincerely, Suzanne

Perfect getaway anytime of year

  • 5 of 5

Nine people in our bridge group stayed there and we loved it. The property is spacious and overlooks a forest and hills in the distance. It's a very complete kitchen too, which is great for our group that tends to fix gourmet meals whenever we travel. The house felt opulent and yet every bed was separated by a door from the main part of the house so that everyone could fall asleep when they were ready. The hot tub was completely private. The property is also the last house on a street, with undeveloped land to the west and north. The owner came by when we checked in and was very nice. NOTE: If you cook, use the fan in the kitchen! We learned the hard way on Saturday morning what happened when you don't follow that advice.

Outstanding home for exploring South Central Oregon

  • 5 of 5

This log home in Shady Cove, Oregon is spectacular! The house is relatively new and modern, very spacious, with high-end kitchen appliances (for those who love to cook). It is not just a house, but the owner maintains it for renters as a "home" with beautiful and very comfortable furnishings. The three main bedrooms all have their own bathrooms (complete with showers & tubs), and there's an extra small room upstairs that is suitable for small children. Great entertainment areas are both upstairs and downstairs.

While the inside is fabulous, what's just as special is the huge deck on the backside of the house that runs the length, with sweeping views of the forest and mountains (just like the photo). At one end is a very upscale hot tub, at the other end is a top notch grilling set-up, and in the middle are many chairs and a couch and lounge chairs -- almost like another big room but outside!

What's ideal about this location is the central proximity to key attractions including Crater Lake (about 1 hour away) and several nearby beautiful lakes and waterfalls, and about 45 minutes to Grants Pass for the Rogue River jet boat experience as well as the same to Ashland for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (not to mention numerous wonderful wineries).

We've been renting VRBOs for our vacations for several years, and this is definitely one of the best! The owner took great interest to ensure our stay was as perfect as possible.

Owner's Response: Dear Craig and Friends: It was my pleasure to host your friendly and caring group. You left my home in excellent condition, and availed yourselves of much that the Rogue Valley has to offer. You were perfect guests. Thank you for your wonderful review. I hope you will all return one day. Suzanne
