Wonderful, clean house located in a beautiful, quiet area, but close to two great restaurants and hiking. The view from the deck is breath taking. Loved my weekend there and will definitely return! I loved the heated bathroom floor.

The view is spectacular. The house is clean and comfortable, secluded but not too far from town. Super communication and hospitality from the owners. Our two children, aged 5&14 also had a great time. We had a wonderful weekend.

The place is very quaint and extremely remote and quiet. I enjoyed my time there. Phone service is sketchy. There is no Wifi nor cable ... which kinda feeds into the purpose for renting such a place. I reccomend this place for anyone who wants to get away from everything and relax!

Dear Morris, thank you for your review and comments. You are right, we don't have cable tv but there is a roku box, and a wifi setup with a fiberoptics network; should be blazing fast. I am confused why this wasn't available when you were up, but I will make sure to inform guests of these services. All best

The location is very convenient as it is near Bovina Center where you can go out for dinner or breakfast, and near Delhi where you get all your groceries; but at the same time it feels very private, you will not find neighbors around or road traffic. The house is beautiful, i loved the art! The view from the deck is amazing and as Cay Sophie suggested the sunrise in the morning was incredible. We had very good weather but in case you need to spend time indoor it has a very nice living space for reading and hanging out, and dining area. Everything in the house works really well, nice comfortable beds, good bathroom and outdoor shower, and if you want to cook the kitchen has a really nice stove and any tool you'd need. Cay Sophie was very helpful from the beginning with instructions, and easy to reach by email, but we didn't really need to contact her as everything worked perfect. I highly recommend her place, we will definitely go back. Thanks!!

We spent a very pleasant getaway here. The house is on a dead-end road shared with the occasional car going to or from just a few homes and farms. Trees keep it fairly private, a meadow of wildflowers on the side facing the street makes for a great stroll. The house is nicely decorated and comfortable. Kitchen and bath are excellent!

Response from Sophie:
Wow! If the Chalet Shack seems only "fairly private" and not extremely remote, Liz's best next option would have to be a deserted island. Our home at the near end of a cul-de-sac, on a mountain top, 7 acres from the closest neighbor whom one could see with good binoculars ... that this is not private enough? We sincerely wish Liz all the best and hope her next Airbnb host will make it happen.
