Cabin, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Located within two to three blocks to the center of The Village and just a five-minute drive to the Snow Summit Ski Lifts. Everything you will need is within close proximity once you land at this resort-like vacation rental. In the summer you can swim, boat, fish and sight-see from your own backyard. In the winter you can go skiing (alpine or cross-country), snowboarding, sledding/tubing and enjoy the beautiful snow. This is lakefront at a fraction of the cost of renting lakefront.
This beautiful lakefront condo is one of three units in a triplex. It was built in 1977 and the given name of the complex is: Lake Chalets. The name of our unit is: Lakefront Retreat. There are two buildings on the lot. The 1st building facing the street has garages and a unit above. The rear building has two units. Our unit is the top floor of the rear building, which has no shared walls and a huge deck with unobstructed lake views.
The two-story condo feels much more like a private home than a condo; there are no hallways to get lost in and it is very private. It has cathedral ceilings and tudor details. This does not feel like a condo or a triplex; it is much more private and feels like a cabin. The lot is over 9000 square feet sitting 'on' the lake. There is plenty of room for activities while waiting for your next boat ride/water ski, your next big catch, snow play or simply watching the boats come and go from the nearby, adjacent marina.
Bedding Configuration: The master BR has a queen-size platform bed featuring a down comforter with duvet plus down pillows with high thread count linens. The master features its own large closet with remote color 20-inch TV with DirecTV and DVD player. It also has end tables with lamps, alarm clock and antique armoire for storage of all additional linens, towels and blankets.
The second bedroom has a queen-size bed with down comforter and duvet plus down pillows 'and' a matching bunk bed separated by an end table with lamp and alarm clock. A modest stackable washer/dryer is in the closet for easy storage and access.
The third and fourth bedrooms are dual lofts separated by its’ own bathroom on the second floor. Each loft is open, with no walls, and has two full beds sleeping four total in the loft area. By the textbook real estate definition, these are not actual bedrooms. There is a closet in the bathroom and a hanging rack in the hallway. Drawers for clothes should be kept under the bed; each bed has three drawers under it.
Living Room: 40-inch Flat Screen TV with DirecTV, wireless internet (airport and ethernet), mac computer and DVD player. Enjoy a crackling fire in the rock fireplace on our comfortable ultra suede sectional couch.
Deck: Just off the Kitchen sits the Deck, that includes views of tall pine trees and clear skies for stargazing or snowfall. Enjoy the sunset from the sit-down views, while melting away the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Backyard: Oversized and huge, the backyard has room for any outdoor activity you can think of including, in the winter, making snow angels in the snow-covered backyard which lies just a few steps down from your own shared dock.
Kitchen: Fully-equipped kitchen with travertine floors, dishes and settings for 12 persons, and all appliances - oven/range for big meals, microwave, toaster, dishwasher, coffee maker and a steak knife set for your steak dinners. With amazing views of the lake through the sliding windows above the sink, and all kitchen utensils, pots and pans - you'll be hard pressed to find a better-stocked kitchen.

Wonderful family vacation July 2016
Lovely place. Was all it was cracked up to be. Kitchen had everything, needed to bring nothing. The deck was a highlight with great views of the lake. Walking distance to the village, marina and many other attractions. Enjoyed parasailing, wave runner, pontoon boating, go-carting, alpine slide, shopping, and eating at the local restaurants. I highly recommend Kari's Lakeside Chalet!
Great place for a girl's getaway!
This place was perfect to celebrate my 60th Birthday with my three sisters! It was quiet, very clean, every bed very comfortable and well stocked. The balcony was so perfectly shaded and a great place for any meals. It's such a short walk to the town also. I highly recommend this place!
Best 4th of July location
I almost hate to write this review because it's going to make it more difficult for my family to find availability to visit the cabin again :-) ...but, I have to be fair and share this place with others :-) Because IT IS AMAZING !! My family and I have been to this location in July for the last 3 years. Kari's Lakefront Paradise is truly that....once you arrive, you will not want to leave. The views and the atmosphere are perfection !! I love sitting on the balcony overlooking the lake with my early morning coffee...watching the lake come alive with activity. The village, which is quaint and always busy with happy travelers, offering ice cream shops, sports bars, great restaurants, crafty stores and outdoor music is a 10 minute easy walk from the cabin. The cabin itself has a warm "mountain cabin" feel, Beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked. Plenty of room for families with young children or grown children like my own. We have such fun playing board games inside or outside games on the grounds next to the lake. Kari is very easy to work with and quick to respond if questions arise. Rent this mountain paradise and you will not be disappointed. (Although I sure will be if there is no availability left for my family and I LOL) Enjoy!!
Family getaway favorite!
My family and I absolutely loved this place! Came out for Father's Day weekend with my husband and 2 kids. Location is ideal - walking distance pretty much to everywhere, the village, boat rentals, etc. Loved waking up to the beautiful view of the lake. The place is very well kept, has all necessities and amenities. Kari, the owner, was very responsive and helpful throughout. We definitely want to come back!!!
My family and friends loved this place. The dog and 3 year old loved jumping in the lake, rolling around in the mud and chasing ducks. They had a blast. There's a hose to wash off, a yard to play in and the balcony has railing with a gate - very safe. Loved how close it was to everything. We never used the car. We would definitely stay here again. 👍🏼😀
Great Girls' Getaway!
My two friends and I just stayed here for two days and had an excellent stay. We spent most of our time on the deck looking at the lake or at the village which is within walking distance or a very short drive. The unit is clean, well-equipped and peaceful. Kari was easy to work with and returned calls and emails promptly. This would not be an ideal location for anyone with mobility issues or heavy suitcases as there are stairs to climb to reach the unit but for most people this wouldn't be a problem. We had a fun stay and I would definitely rent here again.
