Spent 2 glorious weeks at this beautiful, well-maintained home on the East Side of the Lake attending my 50th HS Reunion from PYA and celebrating our son's 30th birthday and just visiting with family, the neighbors, a couple of wineries (of course), and just chillin!!! Linens and towels, paper products, condiments as well as kayaks and life jackets were provided for our use. While there is no washer/dryer, that was not an issue for us since we still have family in Penn Yan and made use of their appliances. Even if that were not the case, there is a launderette not 5 minutes up the road from the cottage. We had our coffee every morning on the deck and many family evening bar-b-q's were held after the family went swimming/boating (brother has a boat) kayaking or just sitting around talking. Neighbors are just terrific and even though The Chalet is close to the Marina, the area is incredibly peaceful and beautiful with the sunsets. The only drawback to sitting on the deck in the afternoons from around 5 to 7pm was the glare of the sun on the lake. Since there were no shades to pull down, we improvised by hanging beach towels from the top of the deck to cut down the glare so that we could sit and enjoy the beauty of the lake without being blinded. We had rented last year on the West Side and were so disappointed that absolutely nothing was "as advertised". This was not the case with THE CHALET... It was everything as advertised AND more. We were so pleased with the property, we are planning another trip next year to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
