About the property

2 Bedroom Ski Chalet In The Heart Of Muskoka's Premier Recreation Area

This house is a quaint 2 bedroom ski chalet with an 2 queen size beds and an extra single bed in the walk out basement. The airtight woodstove in the main floor living room makes the space warm and cozy in the winter months. There is a large screen TV with surround sound, DVD and bluray player and full laundry facilities in the basement. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, dishwasher and full set of dishes. The home will comfortably house 4 - 5 people.

Guests will have access to the private Hidden Valley Beach on Penn Lake. The house is up the street from the ski hill and a short drive to HV Resort, Deerhurst Resort, Deerhurst Highlands Golf Course, Lakeside Golf Course, Clublink's Mark O'Meara Golf Club and only a few minutes from Huntsville's historic downtown core! We are only a 45 minute drive to the west gates of Algonquin Park.

The close proximity to all the recreational amenities of the area make this location ideal for a getaway. It is a very private lot in the summer months so you can enjoy a fire at the fire pit in the middle of the beautifully landscaped yard. The chalet is not air conditioned.

Just ok

  • 2 of 5

This was a pretty basic, bare bones cabin. Nothing really wrong with it other than it is showing signs of age in the flooring, stairs and ceiling, but there was nothing that stood out about it either. Many places offer some form of welcome from the VRBO host or references to what is in the area - anything to show an interest in the guest experience. This place did not have that and although it had a fireplace, there is no wood provided which made for a chilly arrival this week and a return to the store. The place is also not nearly as remote as the pictures indicate - there are rear neighbours a stone’s throw away with no window treatments on the main level. Not private, if that is what you are looking for. Considering all the options for rentals and resorts in the area, I would look elsewhere. Expensive and cleaning fees seem unecesssry.

Needs some freshening up

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed amenities like the BBQ, fire pit, full kitchen, laundry and front porch area.

Cottage showing significant exterior wear and tear. Especially around eve's troughing that is collapsing / broken significantly. Possible safety hazard. Also, the 2nd floor deck from the master bedroom is very worn down.

Interior is functional but could use some freshening up. Specifically, around some broken chairs, and window rods / coverings.

Owner was responsive to needs for additional paper products and BBQ propane. He compensated us for expenses as well. Much appreciated.

Would strongly consider renting again if these minor / major renovations were addressed.

This chalet was the perfect place to enjoy what Huntsville and area have to offer.

  • 4 of 5

The property is well appointed, was clean, and close to the ski hill (a short walk away!), the downtown area, two Provincial parks and many other amenities. Deer wandered around, squirrels played and the snow was heavenly! Very comfortable for two couples, although it is necessary to be able to manage stairs.
