We suggest booking a Deluxe or Premium Chalet to enjoy a full living room or an Open Chalet which has a studio-style living room. All three of these room types offer two bathrooms. One bathroom options include a queen bed in the master bedroom, a living room, and a loft. You have a choice between a Chalet with Queen Loft, which has a queen bed upstairs, or a Chalet with Twin Loft, which has two twin beds upstairs. If you don’t need two bedrooms, we suggest booking our Vintage Single Deluxe room with a bedroom and living room, or Vintage Single without a living room.
