Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing our family to be together at your house in the mountains the weekend before Thanksgiving to celebrate a 7 year olds’ birthday! We had 5 adults and 3 children and plenty of room to play with room to spare. The house was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The kids loved playing with their helium balloons in the tall ceilings and their car and train tracks on the roomy floors. It was great to have 2 awesome spaces to watch TV, one for morning cartoons and the other for morning news at the same time. The thermostat controlled gas fireplaces were a new experience for us – amazing how pretty and warm they made the rooms. Even though our weekend was cold, we spent plenty of time outside too. We hiked Crabtree falls to mile marker 1.1 – about as far as our group could make it with lunch and nap time approaching, especially since the 2 year old was in a carrier on his mother’s back and one was a Gramma. We enjoyed the fire pit in the back yard roasting marshmallows and watching the fire. Even with icicles forming on the boulders in the Tye river, we did a little rock hopping and exploration. Thank you Kealy, for so generously sharing your house with visitors from the city.

Perfect getaway. We were secluded, but in close proximity to a lot of places to check out

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, clean house with all the amenities we needed for our stay. Very spacious and private. Between the deck, yard with a fire pit, gorgeous inside and river across the street, we had everything we needed to have the mountain experience we were looking for

Great location for hiking!

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice getaway spot that is really close to great hiking! Crabtree Falls in nearby, and the AT is not far either. Other fun hiking can be found near the fish hatchery which is a short drive away.

Be prepared to be away from internet and cell phone service. I personally like that aspect but it is tricky if you need to be in touch with other people in the area.

Overall a nice place to stay!

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful property. It was very comfortable for our family of 6. It has every amenity except for cell service and WiFi, but we liked getting everyone off of their phones. We intend to stay there again.

Beautiful house with amazing location and views.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay, I will definitely be recommending this house to friends. Beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you need to be comfortable. We only had 2 adults and 3 children but the layout would comfortably fit a larger family with the dual master bedrooms and living room areas. We could see the falls from the glass doors. This was a quick trip to take my 15 year old skiing but we look forward to another visit soon when we can spend more time at the property enjoying the falls.

Awesome Venue!

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet is beautiful! There was plenty of room for the 8 of us and it was very kid friendly. With 4 kids, that was a big deal for us. Since this was our youngest child's first trip to the area, the safety aspect was very important to us. We love that you moved the fire-pit into the yard area and had a wonderful time roasting marshmallows every night. The location is perfect for hiking, visiting the Tye River, and horseback riding. My favorite part was waking up early (before the kids) and opening the windows to hear the river and enjoy the fresh, cool mountain air. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you so much for a lovely stay :-)
