To introduce our guests to the splendour of fall + winter at Lake Ainslie and surrounding Inverness County and since social travel restrictions due to Covid-19, we reduced the nightly rate for the West LA Chalet by DMNikas from $399 to $245 (sorry, no weekly discounts).

This is a cozy all-wood Chalet in a spectacular lake escape. Soothing sounds of gentle waves & flying eagles overhead provide a memorable & peaceful retreat at this 5-STAR Chalet.

Looking forward to welcoming you!


The space
One queen size bed in the ground floor bedroom + one full size bed on the 2nd floor loft. There is also a full size pull-out sofa bed in the living room. The Chalet is ideal for up to 4 adult guests and can accommodate up to 6 adult guests (add'l fee for each adult guest after 4 will apply). The interior of this Chalet is well appointed and efficient. It is an open space with high ceiling and warm/cozy setting with excellent views of the lake and early morning sun rises. One complimentary kayak and canoe with paddles + life jackets await you (at no extra cost).

At the lower level, there is an 8' X 22' wood deck facing Lake Ainslie - There is a ramp that leads to the Lake and allows access for swimming, kayaking + canoeing (with wooden steps to safely walk down to the water).

Our satisfied guests have given this West LA Chalet by DMNikas 5-Star enthusiastic reviews.

Thank you!
