Awesome Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying at this cabin. There was more than enough room for the three of us. The cabin had everything we were looking for: Cozy, cleaned, and lots of little nice touches. My son loved the giant screen LCD TV. We would definitely stay here again for our next ski trip.

This cabin is so hospitable, one of my house guests compared it to staying at the four seasons... Because of its thoughtfulness in comparison to other cabins. The owners have clearly gone above and beyond with the little touches for our rental experiences. Thank you!!!!

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Finding somewhere for the perfect "Fall Girls Trip" was the goal. After looking at hundreds of homes and places to accomplish it, the Arnold Chalet was our #1 choice to make as our home base. From the moment we arrived at the chalet we felt at home. With it's location, it was close to all of the activities we had planned on doing, and the quiet neighborhood was so peaceful, it would have been perfect as a home base without even opening the door. But, the inside was warm and comfortable, with quality furnishings and appliances. The spaces were cozy but open enough that you didn't feel cramped. You could truly have your own space to read or write in your journal. The outdoor furnishings were a big hit. Mornings started with hot beverages on the loungers as we listened to the birds and watched the squirrels, chipmunks and deer start their days. We literally spent hours around the fire enjoying one another's company after breaking bread at the big outdoor table. We even ate breakfast there each morning with our deer family looking over us. Music was created indoors by the musicians amongst us before retiring to our VERY comfortable beds. Days were filled with hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and paddle boarding. What a gem to return to after a day of play. Mission Accomplished, it was the PERFECT GIRLS TRIP!!!! Thank you to the Davis Family for sharing your beautiful home. If you'll have us, we'll be back!

Warm and comforting home.

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is very clean and wonderful. Well stocked and just a delight to stay in. Beyond that though there is a deep sense of peace and love that just emanates from this home. A real blessing to stay here. Thank you so much.
