The guest may be notified via US Mail or email. Other fees may include but not limited to, linens, furnishings, electronics, structure, property, and surroundings.
CHALET DESCRIPTIONS AND RATES: Information regarding the individual chalets is believed to be accurate but cannot be guaranteed. We have made every effort to ensure that all the information on PMCC’s website is current and accurate. The possibility of errors and omissions still exists. Rates, furnishings, fees, and taxes are subject to change without notice. Most of our properties can be rented for a two-night minimum stay. Minimum night requirements may vary, but the standard is the two-night minimum for non-holiday, there is a three or four night minimum for some holiday weekends and special events.
All of our Chalets are three bedrooms or more. However, we have found over the years that couples and families of four wanted just to rent part of the chalet at a lower rate. To accommodate this, we introduced the two (2) bedroom program. Some chalets can “lock-off” the extra bedrooms, giving the guest full access to the living/dining room, kitchen, one bath, and deck, yet only paying the two bedroom rate. Refer to the Chalet Details to see which units can be rented this way. Dates and restrictions apply. (Bed sizes and lock-offs are pre-determined, call for more information.)
