    The Chalet of the Bears (le Chalet aux Ours) is an authentic Swiss chalet brought from Interlaken, Switzerland, and constructed on its current site in 1929.

Perfect getaway to recharge from a busy, stressful lifestyle. The woods are gorgeous, the beach is quiet and the lodging is well provided for. An all around winner. more
