Chalet L' Etoile


"Chalet L' Etoile" or House Under the Stars" is an absolutely amazing custom chalet located in Placer Valley which is just 15 miles from Breckenridge. The home sits atop a ridge overlooking white-capped mountains and Montgomery Reservoir. The views from the home are breath-taking. The great room with 2 story vaulted windows capture this view. The kitchen, dining  room, great room, several of the bedrooms, the deck, and the hot tub all share this indescribable view of the mountains. The property is secluded and you will not see any other cabins. It is also beautifully wooded. It is very common to see Moose, Elk, and Deer right on the property. Montgomery Reservoir is within walking distance of the home. Chalet L' Etoile is truly a House Under the Stars!

The Chalet has an enormous great room with all glass on the West side that overlooks the majestic mountains of the Continental Divide. Nestled among these mountains is the picturesque Montgomery Reservoir. You will want to take a walk to the lake. There are old historic mines, hiking trails, and the famous Lincoln Falls. The kitchen adjoins the great room. It has just been remodeled with all new appliances. The stove is a gorgeous vintage show piece and will be a joy to cook on. It is a double oven so holiday cooking will be a breeze! This home is set up for entertainment with the great room, kitchen and dining area all open with lots of comfortable seating to enjoy the views.

Fairplay and Alma are the activity center of the Colorado Rocky Mountains and is often referred to as the Base Camp for all activities some of which include skiing, snowboarding, hiking, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, horseback riding (winter too), ice climbing, fishing, hunting, rafting, snowmobiling, 4-wheeling, ATVing, mine exploring, canoeing, kayaking, and much much more.
If you can think of an outdoor activity, you will probably find it within 10-20 minutes of the cabin. It is a great area to call your "Base Camp". Enjoy your stay!
