Awesome 4 bedroom chalet located only a 3-minute drive from Mt St Louis Moon Ski Hill, We love to cook and entertain. Our kitchen/dining/living was designed as 1 big open space that leads onto big deck overlooking the forest. It's great for couples, adventurers, families (with kids) and groups. Private trails from our lot, skiing, snowshoe, biking/hiking, 5' X 8' Pool table, darts. Well behaved dogs welcome. Things to do in area. Search 'the chalet moonstone' on youtube.

The space
PLEASE NOTE. NIGHTLY RATE INCLUDES 13% ONTARIO HST.

Guests find The Chalet is amazing in all seasons. There is much to experience or you can have a quiet fire and read a book. There is also a pool table and dart board if you feel like being competitive. It includes satellite TV and the Internet. There are 2 bedrooms each with Queen beds. There is an open loft to below with a double futon bed looking out onto the backyard forest. And in the basement are 2 single beds. Minutes from MtSt Louie and 10 minutes to Horseshoe Resort. Cute local town of Coldwater and not far from Midland for night life. Lot 102 is great fun and good food! Wasaga and Orilla is about a 20 minute drive along the back roads if you are looking for summer beaches.

We have a fireplace which you are welcome to use but PLEASE BYO WOOD

3 season fire table on the deck is fuelled by propane. 1. Turn propane on at source. (Propane tank) 2. Turn knob on and hold in for 10 seconds after ignition by pressing button. 3. Pour wine. 4. Relax and enjoy.

We sometimes stay in the loft above the garage but this is a completely separate building.

Things to do near The Chalet

We are down the road from Mount St. Louis Moonstone ski resort. There are many walking and hiking trails and we are close to Copeland Forest. It is also great for mountain biking.

If you search YouTube 'The Chalet Moonstone' I've made a video showing you some of the things you can do nearby.

The Chalet backs onto a managed forest and while the trail is marked 'Private' or 'Closed' In a few places, we have permission to walk through the land and while some tree harvesting and forestry is obvious, it's a wonderfully private space where you can walk for miles in natural bush. By the way, we're told the fences that crisscross the area and made of the round limestone that give Moonstone it's name, were built by slaves back in the day. If you walk out the basement door and down past the firepit, you'll pick up the trail. Make your way left.

Quayles Brewery is awesome and only a 12-minute drive from The Chalet. The beer is excellent ...I'm an expert! :-) they are dog friendly, offer delicious food and, at the time of writing this, regularly have live music Friday and Saturdays afternoons from 5 to 8pm. Just search 'Quayles Brewery' for open times and latest info. (See image in pics)

We are 20 minute drive to Orilia, Wasaga, Midland and all the lakes and beaches they offer. We are surrounded by woods in the summer and winter activities are in abundance and the fall leaves are magnificent colours!

There is a beautiful little town called Coldwater that is 10 minutes drive that offers Golf (Bonaire), a train museum, grocery shopping and unique shops and is where the beer store and LCBO are located.

The gas station at Warminster (about 20 minutes) heading towards Orillia has an LCBO sub license which is handy if you miss the Beer store or LCBO hours in Coldwater

We are also close to Horseshoe Resort if you want to be busy. There’s good golfing there too.

Gravenhurst, the gateway to the Muskokas, is a stunning 46 minute drive on Hwy 11. Or you can go the long way via Bala on lake Muskoka and see a bunch more lakes. (See image in pics)

In Midland there is great night life at Lot102 for weekend nighttime dancing or great food.

I'm in marketing and software. Christine is an IT engineer. We're into skiing and snowmobiling (our chalet is only a few minutes from Mount St Louis Moonstone... The best snow close to Toronto) We love to travel and explore the world when time permits. I play guitar, host a regular podcast and we enjoy cooking up a big feast for friends and hiking the amazing trails around Moonstone with our dog Roxi.
