Join Us on a Walkthrough of Cedar Chalet…
Walking in from Cedar’s covered bridge, you’ll find that thoughtful design begins before you even walk in the front door, with a cabinet for your skis or snowboard conveniently located on the porch. As you enter the chalet, you’ll find the turret stairs and our welcoming entry area to your right, which has a cushioned bench to let you put your ski boots on in comfort as well as shelves and cubbies to store all your gear. There’s a full bathroom to your left, so when you’re hustling in from the slopes it’s easy to take care of urgent business!
As you explore the main level’s open floor plan, the jaw-droppingly spectacular great room with cathedral ceiling will unfold in front of you. Suspended above the forest floor, with floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides, you’ll feel like you’re living in the trees every moment of your stay. With a beautiful free-standing gas fireplace in the corner, the great room’s cozy ambiance also creates a toasty atmosphere throughout the chalet. And if after a long day of skiing or hiking you just need to relax a bit, you’ll find a television with Netflix.
Those trees are what will draw you outside, as you slide open the six foot window wall and step out onto your 384 sq. ft. deck wrapping around the back of the chalet. With a large upscale dining set and a quality grill, you can cook and dine al fresco as much as you’d like.
Returning inside, you’ll find the gourmet kitchen – a chef’s dream! – to the left. With a gourmet Thermador gas range and oven, a built-in microwave, dishwasher and french door refrigerator/freezer, you’ll have all the conveniences of home. We provide upscale dishes, glassware and utensils for 12, as well as basic pantry items such as spices, sugar, flour and condiments. To help you get going in the morning, we have an easy to use coffee maker with a separate kettle for tea or pour-overs.
The dining island seats ten at mealtime with six on stools and four on a pull-out dining bench. The island also functions as an additional prep area or a workstation. With high speed wifi throughout the chalet and plenty of outlets underneath the island countertop, you’ll be able to get things done and keep all your devices charged when you just can’t escape that pesky inbox.
In the turret you’ll find the stairs up to the loft, as well as a washer and dryer tucked under the stairs. The loft, open to the great room below, features a queen and two twin beds and is perfect for small families as it has its own full bathroom as well.
From the loft you can take a ship’s ladder to the top of the turret – a favorite place to be. This cozy 8′ round room is the perfect viewing room to the slopes, and with the double papasan cushion, can be used as another sleeping area. For a really killer experience, turn off the lights and enjoy the 600 fiber optic twinkle lights in the ceiling!
Heading back downstairs all the way to the lower level, you’ll find the lower level bathroom immediately to your left. As you continue along, the master bedroom with its ensuite bath will be on your left while the four coach-style bunks will be on your right. Just before walking outside you’ll find the lounge, with a second television, books, and games. Outside and onto the lower patio you’ll find that your own private hot tub awaits you tucked in amongst the trees to help soothe those aching muscles after a long day on the mountain. (For your health and safety, we change the water between every rental.) From top to bottom, inside and out, you’ll love every part of our beautiful treehouse chalet!
No matter what you’re feeling like, each chalet has something for everyone. In addition to the television in the great room and a Sonos system for music throughout the chalet, we have cards, some popular board games, and a small selection of books.
And when you’re ready to head out, you're located right on the slope at Whitefish Mountain Resort, so feel free to bring your own skis or snowboard during winter or your mountain bike during summer, to enjoy the miles and miles of mountain biking trails. You can also rent whatever equipment you need from one of the shops in the resort’s main village no matter the season. All resort amenities, summer and winter, are within easy walking/skiing distance. Just a few blocks away, you’ll find bars, restaurants, and shopping in the main village at Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort!
Snow Bear Chalets is a brand new, unique property with THREE "treehouse" chalets - high above the ground - ON the slopes of Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. There's nothing like it on any ski mountain in the US (that we're aware of!). From the front door to the snow, you'll be shushing down the mountain within 30 seconds of leaving your private chalet!
Ponderosa is slopeside and is our highest in demand. Tamarack is identical to Ponderosa and less than 30 feet from the slope. Cedar is our largest chalet and great for groups. Each Snow Bear Chalet is available for rent by the week, Saturday to Saturday. Book one, two or three chalets and sleep up to 22 guests!
Snow Bear is not for everyone. It's literally the ultimate in luxury living for those who choose a unique, decadent holiday experience. If you're ready to be spoiled on a gorgeous mountain escape, you've found the right place!
