“Good size for our family reunion, but needs some updating”
Reviewed 31 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Opinion of house guest, not the person who signed the lease agreement.
The size of this house was perfect for our family reunion of 19 people. The house could use some maintenance improvements. The walls were scuffed, the front wooden steps need replaced. The banister on the steps upstairs is loose and hazardous. This house is advertised to accommodate 20 people, but there are only 17 forks. The counter in the kitchen island is too tall for the bar stools making it difficult to eat from. The beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were adequate, but a little outdated. One disappointment was the view from any of the balconies...the trees are so overgrown that there is limited views of the beautiful mountains. The drive up to the cabin was treacherous even when we took the short cut through the hotel located down the mountain from the cabin. The wifi didn't require a password so was not secure and it due to the mountain location, our devices often didnt connect. We enjoyed our stay and slept well at night, but for the price, the house needs some cosmetic updates.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

I am sorry that you didn't have enough hot water during your stay at Chalet Mignon. We had not had any complaints about this issue prior to your stay. Perhaps the house full of teenagers overly taxed the hot water heaters. The refrigerator also was working prior to your arrival. Often times guest in larger properties fill the refrigerator with food when they arrive and overload the refrigerators capacity to cool the items. Again I apologize for the problems you had during your stay.

“Promising property, but needs a lot of TLC”
Reviewed 27 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for a family getaway with 10 people. Overall, the property is nice in size and pretty true to the pictures. However, upon entry into the chalet it was very, very clear that the property mangers need to spend about $1000 to address the concerns that stop this place from being as nice as it could be.

The carpet on the floor at the entryway is very dirty and ugly. Not a good sign as the first thing you see when open the door. The kitchen and dining room walls are in need of a paint job badly. There Are grease stains and other stains all over the walls and it looks really bad and made the place feel unclean. The walls have also been gone over with a paint roller in multiple places that are not the same color as the original paint--very sloppy.

Many of the blinds need changing because they are mangled and there are lots of places that have chipped paint, peeling wallpaper, etc. Also, the entire place is in need of a DEEP cleaning, not just the type of cleaning that is done when guests check out. The baseboards in the kitchen and dining room have build up of both dust and dirt.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Chalet Mignon, however it was disappointing to know that these concerns that would not take much time or money to address have gone undone. I've stayed at plenty of cabins with groups before but this one misses the mark because the aesthetic oversights left me feeling slightly cheated. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this place to a friend to stay In only because at this price point, there are many other cabins in the area that have been given better maintenance and attention over time.

For what it's worth, I will be sending this same review to the cabin owners because they could be losing repeat and new business from these oversights and with a little TLC this place could stay true to the description that is given by the property managers.
