Overview

About the property

One of a kind 2 bd retreat close to town on 2 acres of pine and aspen groves

Caroline's Chalet is the quintessential retreat for your Central Oregon vacation. Let this cabin be your home for awhile. This charming and authentic 2 bedroom lodgepole pine chalet is situated on 2 acres of Pine trees and Aspen groves in a quiet wooded neighborhood three miles from the historic town of Sisters providing easy access to golf courses and endless outdoor activities, summer and winter. For the golfers, Aspen Lakes, Black Butte and Eagle Crest are within 15 miles of the Chalet.

For the avid fisherman or fisher woman, birder and hiker, the blue-ribbon native trout waters of the Metolius River offer unparalleled scenic beauty and relaxation. This is the enchanted area of explorers Lewis and Clark offering miles and miles of rivers, lakes, forest, and stunning mountain peaks. Just 5 minutes from the charming town of Sisters, you are free to explore the delightful, unique shops and enjoy delicious restaurants and plenty of live music and seasonal festivals.

The Chalet is 20 minutes to HooDoo, just 30 minutes west of Bend, and only an hour to Mt. Bachelor, as well as miles and miles of cross country skiing and snowmobiling within 10 minutes of the cabin!

Enjoy a movie or a game of cards with family in the large, open loft entertainment area, or cozy up near the fire in the wood burning stove nestled in a stunning lava-rock hearth with a good book. Gather with family and friends in the dining room and cook an unforgettable meal in the fully-equipped kitchen. Relax and unwind on the large outdoor covered deck and patio that overlooks a natural area filled with birds, butterflies, and deer…a great place to relax with afternoon wine, famous brews, cheeses, fresh bread or pastries, and chocolate fudge, especially after an adventurous day of activities. Sit on this deck, rain, shine or snow, enjoy its peacefulness, and stay dry.

Caroline’s Chalet offers new, high quality beds with luxurious, high thread count European style linens and down duvets. The home is equipped with free wireless internet, essential cable TV, DVD, games, books, and so much more for you to discover!  

The charming town of Sisters is noted for its varied events and festivals such as the Sisters Folk Festival and the world famous Sisters Quilt Show, and the Biggest Little Rodeo Show in the World. Hike through many State and National Parks to see astonishing vistas or stroll through meadows and mingle with nature all day. Swim at Camp Sherman, only 15 minutes away, and dip into pools in a bucolic mountain setting, or bring a picnic. Best of all, meet the friendly faces  of the local community…at the events and festivals, and at the museums, restaurants, brew pubs, and boutiques.

In the afternoon when you return to Caroline’s Chalet, unwind on the side porch with the best ice cold well-water in the area right from the Cascade Mountains and share days' adventures with family and friends, play a game of horseshoes, relax, BBQ and suspend time for awhile.

This is an ideal destination for families, couples and small groups who desire comfortable accommodations away from busy cities, but surrounded by multiple activities with lively town life easily accessible.

About Caroline Matz

Doug and I have wanted a home in the woods and we were so glad we found The Chalet. Doug has been a builder most of his life and I was a teacher for 35 years. In retirement, we are enjoying outdoor activities while working on maintaining and updating our homes. We want to provide a one of a kind vacation experience that allows guests to feel truly immersed in their destination! The unique charm of Sisters surrounded by the extraordinary natural beauty of Central Oregon inspires us to create comfortable and exciting accommodations that accentuate the authentic, down-to-earth Central Oregon lifestyle.

We are passionate about our community and hope to share with you the magic of all that Sisters and the surrounding area has to offer!

Caroline Matz purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Caroline Matz chose Sisters

My husband, Doug, and I chose this custom log home for its uniqueness, its setting and the size of the property. It was built by a father and his two sons, which made it special. A lot of special touches were included in its building. He was a cabinet-maker and built the cabinets as well. All space was utilized. Inside, the lava rock fireplace is spectacular, absolutely breathtaking, and does the job of heating the home (even though it has an effective heat pump and air cooling.) It is in Crossroads subdivision in the Pine and Aspen trees. The Chalet is centered on a knoll in the middle of 2 acres, so there is separation for privacy, yet you can easily say hi to neighbors walking by. The sun rises and shines through the loft into the cabin, shines on the kitchen and living room side of the cabin and sets on the front porch. There are 4 hiking trails out to the Sisters Trail Alliance which extends through the Deschutes National Forest. We fell in love with the property!

What makes this chalet unique

The position of the building on the site is perfect to receive the sunlight throughout the day. The sun rises at the back door and in the window of the loft bedroom, travels along the living room side of the house, and then sets at the front of the house. The Chalet gets sunlight all day.

The lava-rock fireplace is awe-inspiring...you will see it when you arrive, and hopefully use it when the weather gets cold!!

The porch and outdoor living area is so special, you can choose any spot you desire to settle in. Watch the deer graze in the yards, squirrels play and gather nuts, birds eating seeds. Sit on the western swing...and relax.

There's no doubt that a good night's sleep makes for a fantastic vacation! But what makes a vacation truly remarkable, truly memorable is when you get to experience the authenticity of a place. To feel its 'vibe' and know it's people. To live for a weekend, several days, a week or more... as the locals live. To feel truly immersed in your destination.

Quentessential Log Cabin tucked against the Cascade Range Mountains

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous Log Cabin in Sisters, OR. This is our second visit to the cabin and it's only gotten better. The owners have added a beautiful wrap around porch and covered patio off the back. The location is fabulous, as it's just minutes from Downtown Sisters, trails, falls, etc. The owners have done a great job making sure that everything is comfortable, the beds are cozy, there are extra supplies (coffee, spices, toiletries, blankets, dishes, etc), a fire ready to be lit in the log fireplace, that the house is clean, stocked and fun. We definitely enjoyed our stay and plan to return very very soon. Sisters is well known for the beauty and the festivals and this is the perfect place to stay to enjoy your true log cabin feel in a mountainous town. A+

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay! Quiet location, we saw deer in the yard on two different days. The bed was comfortable, the cabin was spacious. Good wi-fi connection and short drive to town.

Warm hearth, Warm heart

  • 5 of 5

I recently took a road trip from San Francisco, California to Sisters, Oregon for Christmas and stayed at Caroline's Chalet. It was absolutely fantastic. Caroline was super friendly, warm, trustworthy and easy to communicate with to make the booking. The cabin itself is gorgeous and you can see by the pictures. Note: The building on the side of the cabin is not actually attached to it and is just a storage barn, no one lives there. The property is close enough to town to feel super convenient, yet isolated from the other houses around it to feel very private and special. The wood burning stove in the fireplace is definitely one of the highlights of staying here in addition to the log cabin architecture. Caroline provides lots of wood and we used lots. I was able to get the temperature on the mezzanine level up to 80 degrees using just the fireplace...in the middle of winter. Toasty! The kitchen is fully stocked and fun to cook in. In addition to the property, the property manager Beverly (and neighbor) is incredibly helpful and kind. Since we arrived after dark after a slightly harrowing drive through a winter storm, Beverly offered to meet us on the edge of town and have us follow her to the cabin. I've stayed at 5 Pine Lodge in town once before which is really nice, but the cabin felt extra special. I went with family this time, but could see it being great for a romantic getaway too. Highly recommend!
