The Stay: We stayed in one of the cottages. With high ceilings and open layout, the cottage felt spacious and was the perfect size for the two of us. These cottages were saved from the landfill and were fully refurbished to have a rustic and homey feeling. The only downside was not being able to enjoy the porch because of the large flowering bush which attracted bees. Thankfully, you can enjoy the same beautiful valley view from the safety of inside, where we ate breakfast every morning. We loved our stay and would go back again.
The Food: We had dinner here once and it was outstanding from start to finish. Be sure to call ahead and make a reservation because it is a small kitchen/dinning room. Highlighting fresh, local ingredients, and cooked with heart, Chanterelle is not a spot to miss. With a menu that lets you know exactly where your food comes from, we were impressed by the fact that my Halibut dinner was line-caught. We were then told the fisherman just lives "down the way." Sharing their passion for great, local food just comes naturally here.
