There's just one word for Wes and his Atomic Chalet: Cool. I found this place on a Google search for Snow Basin hotels/B&B's. The Chalet is a charming little wood shingled cabin about 10-15 minutes away from one of the most beautiful mountainous areas of Utah, (Snow Basin). Part of the structure is dedicated to Wes' living quarters which is of no intrusive consequence to his guests. Another small quirk is that guests are asked to remove street shoes upon entering. Slippers are provided. I didn't mind this in the slightest as it contributed to what was immediately apparent upon entering: this place is immaculate. IMMACULATE.
The pictures don't really do this place justice. We stayed in "The Pine Cone" room. Thick down bed linens, massive king size pillows and rustic, thick curtains adorn this sizable room. There is, in true European fashion, a wooden window seat complete with plush pillows that completes the homey atmosphere. Wes provided an evaporative, movable air conditioner but with the windows open and a cool mountain breeze blowing in we found it unnecessary after dark. I was surprised by the bathroom. The shower is really, really large and has been redone with high-end marble tile. A full sized hair dryer is provided. The bath products are grocery store standard and I would advise women or anyone who requires luxury branded products to bring their own. This room also has a loft. Being only two, we did not use it. However, upon taking a peek, it looked really comfortable (with a pull down ladder for extra excitement) and good for kids. Some fairly ancient televisions and VHS players are provided along with a fun selection of movies you've forgotten you once loved. Again, like everything else, both t.v. and VHS players were in perfect working order. Very retro! Wes provides a homemade breakfast served in an Austrian Stube-style dining room with furniture so accurate to my experience there I had to ask him if he had, in fact, purchased them abroad. Drinking strong, black coffee, looking at the mountains, sitting on this furniture I felt somewhat transported. I digress. The breakfast spread includes granola, fresh fruit, fresh baked bread, butter, jam and coffee. Wow.
A couple of things I forgot to mention: There's a pool table off of the dining room, an outdoor ping-pong table and what I believe was a hot tub outside (that I wanted to but didn't have time to use...I'd ask about this when you call to book if hot tubbing is important to you).
If you ski, hike, love the outdoors (or are going to a summer Snow Basin wedding like we were) and hate big retail, no personality corporate chain hotels (like we do) then, by all means, visit the Chalet. This place is an authentic labor of love for the proprietor which makes for a fantastic customer experience. Indeed, Wes runs one super cool little inn and we thank him for a fun stay.
