We spent five days at this wonderful gem in pristine Plumas County. This area reminds me of what the Lake Tahoe Basin was like in the 1950's--unspoiled, charming and majestic. The Chalet View Lodge is located a short drive from two quaint towns, and yet each is established and has anything a traveller might need, as well as activities and plenty to do. This Lodge is best described as a hidden secret. The rooms in the main lodge have high quality mattresses, arching ceilings with lofts above, great wi-fi and a refrigerator large enough to store plenty of food. They even contain wine racks racks with temperature control settings (nice touch for those who want to bring a bottle or two to enjoy next to the outdoor fireplace). Our room was immaculate.
One striking feature about this lodge was it's quiet nature. It was filled to capacity while we were there, and yet the grounds were so large we could always wander off to a private scenic corner and enjoy staring up at the Milky Way. The fire pit near the pond has Adirondack chairs and pre-stacked wood, so we lit a roaring fire, roasted marshmallows and listened to the crickets. The atmosphere is intimate, the layout spacious, and at night the solar path lights snake through grounds and you almost feel like you are at an old-fashioned summer camp.
The breakfast offering is standard HEALTHY fare, so anyone criticizing it is probably more of the eggs and hashbrown type. They had the most delicious granola I've ever had, yogurt, fruit, hardboiled eggs, oatmeal, bagels and cream cheese and all sorts of other treats. If you are the hashbrown type, they serve those five minutes away in a cute little diner. As the old saying goes, "The attitude is gratitude."
Lastly, the owners go way out of their way to make your stay perfect. We plan to return next month for another short visit. Can't wait.
