!The Village Chalet was the perfect place for our group of 8 girls looking to escape the city and celebrate our 30th birthdays. We especially enjoyed the outdoor patio and proximity to the Village. We are all very close and enjoyed the "cozy" atmosphere of the Chalet. However, if you were a couple of families or larger men it may be a tight squeeze. All of the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was perfect (just missing a wine opener which we left for the next guest!). The owners were wonderful to work with and very prompt at answering any questions. Can't wait to return :)
All in all, we had a very good experience. The cottage is right at the entrance to the Village and you can walk to the shops and the lake. The kitchen is nice and well equipped, the living room with flat-screen TV and wood-burning fireplace (though we did not use it) is very comfortable. The deck is large but private and gives a good view of the street and shops below. The only reasons that I did not give it a 5-Star are: though technically it can house up to 10 people, it is a little small. Except for the master bedroom, the other two bedrooms all have bunker beds. It would be OK for kids, but it won't be very comfortable for adults. Also, the bed in the master bedroom is way too soft for my (and my girlfriend's) weary back, but that I understand for a personal preference. Nevertheless, it is an ideal vacation rental for a couple or a small family with young kids.
