The space
Still Point Chalet is surrounded by 160 acres of pristine forest and wildlife. The chalet itself is nestled between an inlet stream, a secluded lake and a marshy bog, hosting myriad birds (majestic blue herons, yodeling loons), otters, beavers & deer. A 1 mile private nature trail leads you by beaver dams, wetlands, birch and pine forests & marshy bog. While its Adirondack park location offers many outdoor fun activities nearby (hiking, skiing, canoeing, biking etc.) the chalet itself offers a wrap around deck, cozy fireplace and indoor jacuzzi for "apres-ski" relaxation. Surrounding autumn colors are spectacular! Winter snows invite cross country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities on the lake and through the forests. Canoeing & kayaking opportunities return in Spring.

We live in the northern California countryside where we run a small business distributing organic produce locally. We love sharing fresh quality food with our local community. We also love the thought of sharing our beautiful family chalets in the Adirondacks (NY) and Laurentians (Quebec) with fellow Nature lovers. I (Michael) am an avid, lifelong hiker (doing some or all of the Appalachian, Pacific Crest and Continental Divide trails). Isabelle is French Canadian from Montreal and is an avid world traveler, bringing us to Europe, Bali, Morocco, Vietnam, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Belize. Apart from world travels, we also love "gourmet camping", which combines 2 of our favorites: fine restaurant dining while enjoying outdoor camping. Michael's parents built Still Point Chalet and were both Adirondack 46ers -- love of adventure and the mountains runs deep in our family -- while Isabelle's mother (a French gourmet) gets fullest credit for our finer culinary predilections!
