Top 10 Reasons to Vacation at Brown Bear Chalet:
10 - Splendid Views
The home is situated adjacent to Whitefish Mountain Resort and overlooks the lower mountain from the back windows and deck. Sit back, relax and enjoy the alpenglow views and the snow gently falling on those cold winter days.
9 - Castaway Master Suite
Brown Bear boasts double master suites. The Castaway Suite is a secluded master suite located above the garage and hosts a king bed, views to the mountain and a full bath. Perfect for a getaway within a getaway!
8 - Fireplace Master Suite
The main master suite is located on the second floor in the main portion of the home and houses a king bed, ample floorspace, fireplace, and large master bath with a double vanity, jetted tub, and a full washer/dryer tucked inside a closet.
7 - Open Concept Layout on Main Level
While the layout of the bedrooms in the home allow for plenty of “away time” after hours the main level of the home offers an open layout perfect for gathering after a fun day’s adventure. The generous kitchen has plenty of room for multiple cooks in the kitchen, the bartender in your group can man the wet bar, the two-sided fireplace adjoining the living and dining rooms keeps the whole area nice and cozy, the dining table and kitchen island allow for seating for 12. The large flat panel smart TV in the living room offers cable viewing as well as streaming for your viewing pleasure and much needed downtime. The large dining table can also double a game table if your group decides on a game night. The kitchen is fully stocked with a gas stove, microwave, large refrigerator, cookware, utensils, and a drip coffee pot.
6 - The Bunkroom
If the kids just can’t get enough of their friends or cousins, just check them into the Bunkroom located in the basement. It sleeps 7 comfortably with room to spare. A sliding glass door steps out onto a seasonal (summer only) patio to enjoy some fresh air. A full bathroom and full washer/dryer are also in the basement so they can just leave all their smelly clothes in the basement, thereby keeping the main level blissfully clean during your stay. Vacation is a break from reality!
5 - The Gameroom
Conveniently located in the Bunkroom downstairs the gamers will find a foosball table, smartTV with DVD and a few family friendly movies, board games, puzzles, Nintendo Wii with several games, and indoor basketball shooting hoop. Kids, the adults are invited too since they’ll be paying for your trip. And YES, adults, there is a door to close to keep all that joyful noise downstairs!
4 - Outdoor Grill
Grilling is always a great way to get some more people on the cooking team, but get some of the cooks out of the kitchen! Bring on the meats and veggies and load the grill full. Propane included.
3 - Large Six Person Hot Tub & Spacious Deck Overlooking the Slopes
All season outdoor spaces are a definite luxury in mountain towns. In the summer enjoy late evening sunsets and cool breezes and in winter enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub. Six jetted seats and a large foot well make this a terrific hot tub for a larger group.
2 - Access to the Elk Highlands Lift & Proximity to the Ski Village
With the nearest ski run (Home Again) just a short ski trail ride through the neighborhood you’ll be at the lift in minutes. When your legs decide it’s time to call it a day just head on over to the private Elk Highlands Lift* to get back to the neighborhood and Brown Bear Chalet. The home is located just a two minute drive to the Base Lodge, the five-star Cafe Kandahar restaurant, and also the Ski Village where you’ll find a small market, ski rentals, and resort restaurants like The Bierstube and Ed & Mully’s.
1 - Main Level Accessibility
This one could prove important for you aggressive skiers or mountain bikers who end up with a wonky knee or ankle during your stay. The main level houses a half bath and two queen bedrooms that share a joined full bath with a walk-in shower.
