Almost all of our guests have taken the time to leave us a hand written note in the cottage or send us an email upon departure telling us of the great time they had.
Other comments, We just couldn't keep up.... Logview and Peaksview 2019 Just a note to say kudo’s to you and your team at Peaks View Chalets for making our June 21, 2019 “Family reunion” such a success. The accommodations exceeded expectations in every way. Your suggestion to take the 2 adjoining chalets ( Peaks View and Log View) was spot on. Peaks View afforded us a great place to serve meals on the large table just off the well equipped galley kitchen and the oversized deck served as our oasis for everything from quite chats to spirited dancing after suppers. While both chalets afforded an upscale rustic experience that lacked nothing in amenities with access to ATV trails, the beach and golfing, I have to say that I keep thinking about Log View with it’s hand pegged wide plank pine floors to the chinked log walls. What a place for a romantic get away in the fall, with a photographers palette of colors waiting out side and a warm fire inside it would be like stepping into a Harlequin romance novel. Family members from the West coast commented that with the ski hill in sight of the chalet and only minutes away from the chair lifts a winter get away at Log View would rival staying in Whistle, BC but without the cost. All this and only an hours drive from Ottawa. Kevin Maberly. Ontario
Mountainview May 2018 We highly recommend this cottage- loads of space and great amenities. Everything about it was easy and convenient which isn't always the case with rentals! The downstairs bedroom is a great teenage pad and the house provides many areas for guests to spread out and enjoy. Randy and Larry were great hosts and always available via phone or email. We felt very welcomed the moment we arrived to find chocolate on the table! K&P trail is scenic and awesome for biking and nice hiking across the way up to eagle's nest. We love the calabogie area and Ottawa heritage radio completed the ambiance for the adults. We will be back!
May 2018 Mountainview Hi Randy - just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all the extra little touches at the house- chocolates, toothbrush, full propane and firewood- don’t want to forget the coffee pods! Wow. Thanks so much! Karen and Dave 2018 Cottage is very cosy, clean and well equipped with everything you need! We rent several times a year from various peaks cottages and they all boast these same characteristics! Highly recommend. Lisa Feb 2018 Hi Randy, We really enjoyed our stay. It is always such a nice, quiet getaway. We took some business cards to pass around as people have been asking us about your cottages. Hopefully it will bring more business your way. Michelle and Alain Lakeview Oct 2017 Another excellent experience at Lakeview Chalet! The chalet was spotless on arrival and was well stocked with all amenities. We were so happy with all the little extras we found throughout our stay like toys for our children and a huge selection of DVD's and board games. The beds were so comfortable and there was a great selection of different pillows to choose from. We will definitely be back again next year and would highly recommend this property! Thankgiving 2017 Good morning Randy, I didn’t get a chance to leave a message in the guest book, but I just want you to know that me and my family enjoyed the Logview Cottage very much. The cottage is beautiful, very clean and well equipped. I have rented cottages in the past, but yours surpass all of them. We went for walks, drives and we even got to fish. My grandson enjoyed the air hockey and football game table. The weather was good, except for a bit of rain. Hopefully we will be back next year. Thank you for making our Thanksgiving weekend a memorable one. Logview 2017 I booked the Logview Cottage for our Thanksgiving weekend. The cottage is beautiful, very clean and well equipped. I have rented cottages in the past, but Logview surpassed them all. We went for walks, drives and we even got to fish. My grandson enjoyed the air hockey and football game tables. The weather was good, except for a bit of rain. Hopefully we will be back next year.
Thank you for making our Thanksgiving weekend a memorable one. Xmas 2016-2017 Dear Randy and Larry, Joe and I had a wonderful time staying at your cottage. Although the weather was a bit of an issue, we still had a relaxing and enjoyable time. We would like to thank you for the gift of Champagne and Chocolates…….that was very thoughtful and appreciated by both of us. Also, we would like to say that your decorating for Christmas was lovely and your choice of excellent quality appliances b.b.q. and kitchen accessories etc. does go along way to enhancing the experience. Hello Randy and Larry... Just a quick note of thanks for the long weekend rental of the Peaksview Chalet. The four of us really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and orderly, and in particular, I appreciated all the thought that has clearly gone into the chalet to make it relaxing, easy, and comfortable for guests. We all felt at home immediately.
Hope to be back for a longer stay later this summer or sometime in the fall.
Many thanks again.
Hi Randy. We are just back from the lakeview cottage. It was great! Thank you for the lovely setting and we really appreciated the well equipped kitchen. The kids loved the toboggans (as we had forgotten to bring ours).
Thanks Randy. This was our second stay, our first being last March in your chalet near the ski hill. We enjoyed both very much. This one was perfect for just my husband and I. A lovely getaway. The first one was better suited for families, especially in winter on account of the proximity to the ski hill and the games room. Good to have the variety of choices with your various properties. Were impressed as last time with the cleanliness and with how well equipped the chalet was. Thanks again,
Good Evening Randy & Larry,
We can’t tell you enough how much we loved the Peaksview Chalet when we stayed for the Calabogie Rib & Blues Fest a couple weeks ago. Although the weather was not the greatest, we had a wonderful time with our friends who also loved the event and the chalet and we want to make it an annual thing now. I especially loved all the little “extra touches” you left out like the chocolates, which we devoured!, the napkins and what a thoughtful gesture to leave the toothbrush and paste in the bathroom cabinet! You sure made it feel like home.
Dear Randy, We wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time at your cottage (Peakscottage) this week and have now returned home.
Thanks again for making our stay so lovely in such a beautiful, well-appointed cottage. Until next time, Marcia
Thanks for having toboggans for the kids. They have already had some fun exploring the hill behind the cottage. They also love the fooseball table. Thanks also for the hot chocolate, marshmallows and chocolates!
Thank you, we enjoyed the long weekend and were very happy that we chose to stay at your chalet. It sure is a wonderful place to relax and unwind! Both Jerry and I will certainly recommend your properties to others.
Thanks Randy and Larry, everything superb. Loved all the extra touches. chocolates the kitchen provisions, we wanted for nothing. thank you. Sophie
Dear Larry & Randy,
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The equipment you have in the log place is excellent. We wanted for nothing. We hope to come and stay again soon, maybe this Spring or Summer.
With thanks and best wishes, Chris
Just a note to thank you for having a really great place to stay. we really had a good time and your attention to detail is the very best. would not hesitate to stay there again.
thanks, jeff and deb
we certainly did enjoy our recent stay.
In fact we enjoyed it so much we’re hoping the school holidays work out next year so we can come back again.
The chalet is just lovely and suits our family perfectly; and of course Calabogie is a delightful spot.
We appreciated you stopping in the day the power went out. It was nice to know you’re looking out for us.
All was just fine in the end and the kids quite enjoyed the drama!
Trish & Randy

Just a letter to thank you for our stay at your Chalet...We had a fabulous 6 days. I just want to tell you again how impressed we were with the Chalet, you guys have outdone yourselves when setting up for guests.

Many thanks for all the conveniences of home. Hope to do this again.

Hi Randy and Larry
We just wanted to Thank-you for our stay at Peaksview ! We had such a wonderful time and absolutely LOVED the area !
We found it so beautifully peaceful and relaxing. The cottage was everything that we had hoped for and more- your attention to detail in having all the little things we probably would have forgot to bring along was incredible.
We loved the area so much that someday we hope to move to the area and escape the city life!
We hope to return to Peaksview again in the future, and will highly recommend the cottage if anyone is asking us for recommendations!!
Hoping you enjoy the remainder of your Summer!! All the best,

Hi Randy, Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peaksview Chalet and have already been recommending it to friends and family. I have no suggestions on how to 'improve' the Calabogie chalet. It was very well equipped, clean, comfortable bedding, plenty of kitchen ware and in a fabulous location. We will definitely return. Thanks again Charlotte

Thank you for sharing your chalet.

Adam & Carol & Family July 2008
We wanted to say how much we appreciated staying your chalet, and the small touches such as things you might forget; the area information; wonderful variety of videos for evening; being incredibly well appointed; the friendliness and helpfulness of your neighbor; and a spice rack! - all added to the welcome you afford to your visitors and the homeliness we felt.
We did leave behind a couple of things - purposely left the ice cream for the next visitors to enjoy, and accidentally our freezer pack, which must only mean that we will be back for another stay sometime!
Thank you indeed

We sincerely thank you for your hospitality, and we would certainly come back again.
Shelly & Family January 2008

December 2007 Klassen family
This was the 1st Xmas with the passing of our father and we wanted a different place than home to celebrate this year.
We could not have asked for a more charming place to celebrate this year. Your cottage is magical and so cozy. Thank you so much for the little special touches, the wine, the chocolates and the Christmas decorations. You have thought of everything. We will definitely be back to this special place.
Christine & family Xmas 2007
We could not have asked for a more charming place to celebrate our holidays. Your cottage is magical and so cosy.
Thank-you so much for the little special touches & xmas decorations, you have thought of everything. We will definitely be back to this special place.

It is us who thank you! We had a wonderful time there and will for sure recommend it !
Thanks again! Christine
Ron and Maryane and family Thanksgiving weekend 2007
Cannot stress enough how perfect your cottage was for all of us!
I have been raving about it to everyone at work, we had the best time. I was shocked at the well stocked cottage and all of the little extras like the thanksgiving napkins, wine and pumpkin at the door you left behind.
We are already planning our thanksgiving 2008 with you. It rained quite a bit but no one seemed to notice with the cozy woodstove and all of the dvd's and magazines that were there.
Thanks again for the best time ever!!
Chantal Sept 2007
Thank you so much Randy. All four of us just loved your Cottage. It was so nice to be away from the City life awhile and to just sit back and relax.
Your Cottage was a very quite and cozy place to escape the world if only for a few days. We will be dealing with you more thought the skiing season and for ATV trails in the near future.
Again we would like to thank you for your hospitality.
Fran & Ed August 2007
Hi Randy, We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage in Calabogie. P.S. everything was good at the lodge. Notice to other people that ask you about ATVing, there are many trails out of Calabogie and right from your cottage. There are also a lot of trails around Black Donald lake. Those are the trails that we wish to explore further.
Fran and Ed
The Reid's August 2007
Hi Randy...just wanted to tell you how wonderful your cottage was! We had absolutely no problems and nothing but a great time! A fantastic first family holiday for us and our 6 month old! You really weren't kidding when you said it came stocked. This was cottaging......first class style! The Reids
Monique August 2007
Just wanted to let you know that we were very happy with our stay and enjoyed the time relaxing, swimming, biking and hiking. Thanks again for everything and we will definitely keep it in mind for next year!
Thanks again, Monique
Greg July 2007
Hi Randy; Thanks for having us, we had a great time! And thanks also to Steve for helping us get settled, we weren't at all disappointed with the switch to the chalet as the sofa beds were in nice shape.
The place really felt like a home away from home. We had a few guests and now I fear we may need to compete to book the place the next time we come to the track. :) Oh well, at least I have the satisfaction of knowing I found it first.
Earl, Connie and Nathan July 2007
Hi Randy; Thank you for the wonderful opportunity of renting the chalet this past weekend. It was exactly the relaxing getaway that Earl and Nathan and I needed. Unfortunately the weather was not the warmest but we still made it down to the dock daily to teach the little guy how to fish and to sit and relax.
The chalet itself was very nice and all the room that we needed. We will check back with you shortly for winter availability. We might take a look at the other chalet too. We are looking for a weekend getaway in the winter with our family and our stepchildren.
Take care, and thanks again. Earl, Connie and Nathan.
Jenna May 2007
The girls and I had a wonderful time up at the cottage. Everything was provided for us and many little extras.
Thanks again for letting us stay, and we are already trying to get time off work to visit again.
Suzanne May 2007
We had a great time at the cottage. I would like to thank you as well for this opportunity, we really enjoyed our stay. You have a beautiful place up there. Suzanne
Donna & Family May 2007
Thank you so much - the chalet was lovely! Great view of the peaks too. I think the kids outnumbered the adults at the party - everybody had a great time and the location was perfect. Brendan was pretty impressed with the "indian teepee" out back. Calabogie has definitely changed since I was there - the Porsche's in the parking lot at the Peaks outnumbered the "regular" cars.
We'll definitely keep the chalet at the top of our list when we're heading back that way and have already recommended it to a number of others.
Thanks again!! Regards,
Jennifer & Devin February 2007
We wanted to let you know that our stay at Peaksview Chalet from Feb 23-25 was fantastic.
The chalet was more than we ever imagined. Not only was it clean and well equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, but the view and the sunlight that streamed through the large open windows was phenomenal.
We enjoyed our time playing some of the board games in the chalet, hiking on local trails, and building warm fires in the woodstove. We found our stay incredibly relaxing and comfortable. We are eager to return to your chalet over the next year to enjoy the area throughout the different seasons.
Thank you very much for renting your chalet to us and offering us a little haven away from the city. You'll definitely hear from us again, as we find ourselves already trying to plan our next getaway...
Thank you and take care, Jennifer & Devin
Cheryl February 2007
It was fantastic! One of the comments upon arrival was, " it is even more beautiful than the pictures", and truly is is a special place. I overcame my apprehension and even tried downhill skiing once again, after viewing the hill all week how could I not try it.
Jim and I enjoyed the tranquility for the week and the group of women who arrived on Friday had nothing but praise for the beauty of the location and of the chalet.
We most certainly will return if you will have us and will recommend your home to our friends.
Thanks again Randy for a wonderful stay.
John January 2007
Thank you. Yes, we had an excellent stay at the chalet even though the weather this winter has been extremely sub normal. We will definitely be in touch if we choose to visit again.
Lisa & Dave January 2007
Randy, We had a wonderful time during our stay - even with the usual weather. We were very pleased with the chalet and all that was offered. We most definitely would recommend your place to others and will return when we come back to Calabogie again. Thank you
Jeanne January 2007
We loved our stay at your chalet. It was beautiful. My daughter enjoyed going snowboarding, along with her boyfriend. My husband and I enjoyed walking up and down Viewmont Drive, such beautiful scenery.
Again thank you for the chance of renting your beautiful chalet. We will definitely consider renting again in the future.
Janice December 2006
We absolutely loved the place...it was so quiet and peaceful...just what we needed.
Boy, when you said everything is included except for linen, towels and food, you weren't kidding!!! We were touched by the Christmas decorations, lights and the "Welcome" gift. They were a wonderful surprise. Scott was happy to find the axe in the basement...he was in his element chopping extra kindling and smaller chunks for the woodstove. We kept it going for the whole time we were there because of the weather. We definitely intend to go back...this time with the gang (our 4 teenaged/young adult children) if they can swing it. How fast does it book up in the summertime? I have already been telling lots of people about your wonderful chalet. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in Peaks Chalet. Cheers, Janice
Kate November 2006
We had a great weekend at the chalet, and I'll be sure to recommend it! We loved the place! It was just the getaway that was needed.
Thanks again! Kate
Beej & Clan October 2006
Hi Randy! We had a wonderful time on the weekend, played golf, hiked, etc. Your chalet is very well equipped and very comfortable. I cannot think of any improvements at all and I'm sure we will use it again and will highly recommend it to friends!
Thanks again for "your hospitality"!!
Sharon & Trevor September 2006
Thank you for your email and of course for having Trevor and I stay at your beautiful chalet!
The area around the chalet is great. It stopped raining long enough for us to do the short hike up to Eagle's Nest - the view was amazing! I thought the chalet was very clean (cleaner than our house!) and the whole system of booking, getting the keys etc. could not have been more well organized. Trevor is already talking about wanting to come back and go skiing one weekend over the winter.
Thank you again,
Lori, Gerry, Tess and Emma-Grace September 2006
Thanks very much for all the effort taken to make our stay at Peaksview Chalets a really pleasant one. The chalet itself is a dream! It's beautifully designed and decorated, and truly equipped with everything we might have needed. The kids loved the spiral stairs and their loft bedroom, not to mention the beach, while we older folks appreciated the quiet, natural setting (with every modern convenience at our disposal), and the proximity to the Ottawa area (I'm still a city girl at heart...). So thanks again, we'll be sure to keep Peaksview in mind, and to recommend the chalet to anybody we know who is planning on traveling in the area. Best, Lori, Gerry, Tess and Emma-Grace
Dan and Susanne August 2006
Good Evening Randy. The four of us had a wonderful stay. I only have one compliant... the holidays were over too soon. The chalet is very nicely laid out and it make anyone staying there feel at home. Thanks again and yes I have told a few of my co-workers about your chalet as they were interested.
Thanks Dan and Susanne
Ewa & family August 2006
Hi Randy, We had a very pleasant stay in your cottage. The cottage met all our expectations, and we certainly will consider it for our next vacation (or sometime in the near future) and recommend to friends. We felt like at home, and our daughter appreciated the kids movies as well as toys and puzzles she found in the bedroom upstairs. Thanks Ewa
Sylvie & family July 2006
Thanks for renting us your cottage, we had a great week!
We enjoyed playing many of the games you had at the cottage. Our eldest is just old enough now to play along, we bent the rules a little for Sarah the 4 year old!
Calabogie beach was nice, we rented a kayak for a day, I spotted a loon, a turtle and a Blue Heron. We enjoyed visiting Burnstown (I had to get my cafe au latté fix).
We got all dressed up to go to the Duck restaurant on Tuesday night to find out they are closed on Tuesdays, so we ate in Renfrew.
So we'll have to come back to eat at the Duck sometime!
Thanks again! Take care.
Michelle, Larry, Justin, Ashley June 2006
Hi Randy & Steve
Thank you so much for the great chalet. We all loved it! My kids drooled over the movies & had to restrain them from watching them! We are all looking forward to our next visit, probably in the winter.
Kylie April 2006
Thank you so much for the use of your chalet. It was a comfortable stay, we felt right at home. Also thank you for allowing us to bring our little dog, on late notice, we truly appreciate it. My husband and I will be sorting out summer holiday schedules this week; we would like to rent the chalet again in the Summer time. We will be in touch soon.
Thanks again Kylie
Sandy & John March 2006
We had a great time at the chalet....thanks. the skiing was good too.
Ron February 2006
Thanks, we had a great week.
Chalet had everything we needed, and it was especially good to have the basement to store and tune skis.
Whitney February 2006
What a beautiful chalet you have. We enjoyed ourselves immensely. It had everything we could possibly need or want. The weather wasn't on our side unfortunately, but there were lots of movies and board games to keep us busy by the nice warm fire place.
We definitely plan on coming back another time, and we will recommend it to others. Thank you for your hospitality, and we hope to come back soon.
P.S. Thanks for the chocolates.
Ann-Marie January 2006
The chalet was a real treat again this year! The weather was perfect and the ski conditions the best we have had at Calabogie. Packing is a lot easier when you don’t have to bring all the extras. The kids really enjoyed the movies and games in the evening. The wood stove was warm and cozy in the evening.
Your new floors are beautiful.
We’re all looking forward to returning again next year.
Jess January 2006
Pete and I had a wonderful time at your cottage and even ended up getting engaged on the final day of our trip!
I'm sure that we will always hold a special place in our hearts for Peaksview Chalet.
Jim, Gisele & Jonathan Xmas 2005
Randy: Our stay at Peaksview Chalet was without a doubt a wonderful Christmas retreat for our family. Your chalet provides all the comforts of home. It is very comfortable, clean, and well equipped with everything you could possibly need.
The chalet is situated on a beautiful piece of property with a spectacular view of the mountain. It provided something for everyone in our family; hiking, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, movie watching, board games, reading or just relaxing.
We would definitely recommend Peaksview Chalet to our family, friends and co-workers and look forward to an another opportunity to return.
Thank you for your hospitality.
Marc & Lisa October 2005
Lisa and I spent a very nice weekend at the cottage. Great walking trails in the area with spectacular view at Eagle's nest. Very clean and quiet location, we got some great relaxing done. thank you, Marc
Anne October 2005
Hi Randy We enjoyed our three days at your chalet immensely. The weather wasn't the greatest, raining quite a bit, but the chalet is lovely and made the indoor time very enjoyable and comfortable. We arrived to find the cottage very clean and welcoming. We had no problem locating anything and all worked perfectly-the woodstove, the dishwasher (wonderful!), stove, bbq, water cooler (fantastic!), plenty of hot water, etc. I could tell that you enjoyed the cottage very much yourself and wanted to have everything set up to ensure the pleasantest of stays for those who rent your cottage.
Thank you. The choice of wines was a surprise and welcome touch. The cottage is quiet and private, in fact we seldom saw anyone.
The surrounding area is beautiful. Such a lovely view from the front of the cottage. We were able to enjoy several of the trails when it wasn't raining, including the Eagle's Nest-wow!!! To think that we didn't even realize there was a Calabogie in our province until I found your site. So glad that we discovered you and the area. Thanks again for sharing the Peaksview Chalet. Anne
Jayne October 2005
We had a lovely time despite the rain. Your cottage is beautiful and exceptionally well equipped and welcoming. Cheers and thanks again. I will definitely be recommending you to our friends who like to ski. Thanks.
Sherry October 2005
Thanks Randy! We had a really nice stay and even saw some wild life -- well, a skunk. No close encounters, however.
Rose & Family September 2005
Hi Randy! Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time! Here are our favorite things....
Savannah - satellite tv, Zach - movies and mountain biking, Holleigh - scrabble and Cranium, Gabrielle - twirly stairs and twirly bar stools, Quinton - the fire "pit", Kelvin - no work, BBQ, movies, Rose (me) the amazing view (day and night) mountain biking, cozy well equipped chalet, the games and nice new appliances!
We hope you get a chance to visit your own place too!
Thanks again! We have already recommended the Chalet! And because the family hardly wanted to leave the chalet, we have to go back to Ottawa again...we know where we would love to stay!!
Take care, Rose and Family
Melanie August 2005
We absolutely loved it. There was more gadgets and things in that kitchen than what I have in mine. What a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy the countryside.
Everard August 2005
We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay at Peaksview......The Chalet was everything we expected and more, and had everything we needed to make our all-to-short vacation a real pleasure. I'll definitely be calling you again.
Gene & Lois August 2005
Enjoyed our stay here,. Thank you for the wine too! Had a great view from the ski lift, could always see the red roof of the chalet. Its been a relaxing stay.
Steve was a great and helpful neighbor.
Leslie & Family March 2005
Hi Randy, we had a wonderful family get away. We enjoyed your chalet so much that no one wanted to leave it to go out for dinner! Next time we come we'll stay longer.
The chalet was even better equipped than home....:-) Thanks again.
Kelly March 2005
I just wanted to let you know that our family had such a wonderful time in Calabogie. Your chalet is so beautiful. I will be looking on the website to see what is available for the summer months. We would love to visit again. I will recommend your chalet to everyone I talk to about Calabogie. I will also put my comments on the website, but I just wanted to send you a personal note. What a beautiful place you have.
Kelly & Gerry February 2005
Hi Randy, we had a fabulous team in Calabogie. The accommodations were fantastic. We said that next time we need at least one more night! I'm attaching a couple of pics. Thank You for Everything Kelly
Bert February 2005
Good morning Randy
We had a blast. What a great family get away. Everything was perfect. Your chalets are outstanding with all the comforts of home. Great skiing weekend. We certainly plan on returning.
Suzie February 2005
Hi Randy ,
We enjoyed our stay and were completely seduced by the countryside under the magical snow last week-end. You sure are honest when it is mentioned on the web site that it's very well equipped, we were surprised how well!
My stay was great! Again, my thanks for all your help! We had such a great time last weekend that my husband wants to rent the chalet again!
Anne-Marie -December 2004
Just wanted to follow up and let you know that we had a great visit to your chalet at Calabogie on December 29 & 30th. Great place! We'd love to do it again next year!
Tate & Family -December 2004
Thanks for a great holiday! My family and my boyfriend's family had an absolutely fabulous time and we intend on returning some time, so I will keep your email handy! :)
Mariana -December 2004
I just wanted to tell you how pleased we were with everything. My husband and I couldn't have been happier with everything. It was truly everything we were looking for and more. The view was spectacular, the cabin was so cozy and beautiful and we had everything we needed right at our fingertips.
Thank you so much for everything. I will certainly recommend your beautiful chalet to all of our friends and family and I'm sure my husband and I will be back. Thanks again! Mariana
Barbara & Family -October 2004
We had a wonderful time and are already talking about when we can go back. The chalet is quite perfect. Really, I can't think of anything that would make the chalet any more perfect. It's very well stocked. We enjoyed the Lego and children's puzzles too with our 2 year old, and she became very attached to the little white stuffed bear. It made for a very friendly place to call home for a week. Thank you.
Natalya - Sales Manager for an Ottawa 4 Diamond Hotel -August 2004
We loved Peaksview Chalet, it was a perfect getaway from Ottawa. One of us commuted to work and the drive was a breeze.
Chalet is incredibly well laid out and even better equipped – just bring food and everything you have at home is already there (and more!). The deck was nice, large and perfect for star gazing at night. Chalet is really close to amazing hiking trails and is really close to the beach.
We cannot wait to come back in the winter and again next summer! Everything was exactly like it looked on the pictures and even better!
Rod July 2004
The cottage was great - we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend it to others.
Karen, Rick and Family May 2004
Just a brief note to thank you for our stay at Peaksview Chalet. The chalet was very comfortable, clean and well-stocked. We had an enjoyable time there, although we were not outside much due to the weather. Thankfully, you had some videos and Nintendo for the children. Once again, thanks for making our stay pleasant.
Brenda March 2004
Hi Randy, everything was wonderful at the chalet and the skiing was superb. I cannot think of anything that I would suggest to change as I feel the chalet is well equipped and has a nice homey atmosphere.
Linda March 2004
I am back to reality (work) now after my stay at Peaksview Chalet. It is a wonderful spot and my family enjoyed it thoroughly. The skiing was great. There is nothing but good I can say, everything was at our disposal
Scenery is breath taking Comfortable and relaxing chalet, very cozy Pleasure renting from you (ease) - felt at home Will definitely be calling again to rent
Bert March 2004
We had a wonderful trip... The four of us enjoyed our stay very much! A very relaxing (emphasis on the "x" zzzzz) weekend. Weather was excellent. Accommodations we're great! We were all very impressed, and some of the women in the group are hard to impress :) :)
Excellent weekend all around, We'll be booking with you for the summer with my children....
Carey Feb 2004
The boys were snow skating down the front walkway and we got new snowshoes for Christmas that we were able to try out. I am sure we will rent again and that we can also drum up some business for you!
Carrie Oct 2003
Thanks for everything we loved staying there, very lovely cottage and beautiful nature.
Thanks for the hospitality and I will spread the word of what a great chalet you have!
Guy Sept 2003
Had a great time at your chalet. We found it very nice with the open concept and cathedral ceilings. The furniture complimented and gave a nice atmosphere.
Had a great BBQ on Friday night with great cuts of steaks.
We spent Saturday on the lake and caught 6 walleye and on Sunday 7 walleye. ( best part )
I want to thank you for renting me the chalet and look forward to doing it again.
Aditya Sept 2003
First of all - I will congratulate you for being able to setup and maintain the Chalet so wonderfully. It was a real pleasure seeing such a nice place you have.
Everything was taken care of. If someone really needed something while there - they would find it. I never expected that we will find a electric hand mixer (we needed for making the pancake mix from scratch). Lo and behold - we found it.
We really enjoyed your place - and you bet - we will be back some other time for sure.
Raymond and Fiona - August 2003
We all had a great time at your Chalet. Everyone was quite impressed with the cleanliness, size, and amenities provided. It certainly was a great help with water and other household supplies (paper towels, cutlery, plates, glasses, etc) being provided. As it was, our vehicle was packed to the brim with food, clothes and other things we needed during the week.
All in all, we would love to come back someday and spend another relaxing week. Weather was great when we were there so we couldn't ask for more. Oh, and the Duck restaurant at the Lodge was fantastic (we decided to give ourselves a break from cooking and cleaning on our last night there), great food. Thanks for a great week.
Fay - March 2003
Randy: the gals and I are already planning a third visit to Peaksview, next winter. This is becoming an annual retreat for us: we call it the Spa-de-dah retreat (which is mostly just lah-de-dah talk for a weekend without husbands, computers, pets'n'kids--you know the drill!).
Arriving for our second visit was like coming home.
You and your co-owner(s) have done a lovely job and I hope you get to spend as much time there as you want, too!
On Sunday morning after the big snowfall, two of us went outside to shovel. I had done half the driveway when someone came and plowed the rest. Now, Peaksview is so well equipped that I was sure the lane would be blown clear by someone you hired, but the snow was so light and the morning so engaging that we just had to get out and do something in it.
Lee-Anne - March 2003
I just wanted to let you know that everything was WONDERFUL last week at the chalet. I love to cook and your kitchen was just perfect to feed three hungry skiers! All of the little extras were what made the difference. ( the well equipped kitchen, videos, stereo etc.) The view out our front window allowed me to watch the guys as they skied. They would radio me and I could grab the binoculars, (another nice touch!) and I would watch them come down! As I said, I logged a lot of time in there last week and it really couldn't have been more comfortable. We look forward to renting from you again.
Paul- Jan 2003
We had a great time last weekend. Love the place. looking forward to returning in February.
Brendon- Jan 2003
The Chalet was more than I had expected. We had a wonderful time with the brisk winter days, the beautiful views and all the amenities of home. You really do have a wonderful place here. Thanks again and I am sure you will hear from us again in the future.
Sonia & Francois- Jan 2003
We just came back from your cottage and it was great. We had a great time, both inside and outside. Thank you very much
Christa- Jan 2003
Thank you so much for everything. It was so thoughtful of you to leave us a bottle of sparkling wine. It came in very handy on New Year's Eve. The bottle was so pretty that we brought it home with us to make a candle holder out of it.
We really enjoyed our stay at Peaksview Chalet. The chalet is incredibly well equipped. We went a many walks on the trails in the woods. I picked a few of your business cards and have begun handing them out to friends who may be interested in renting.
(Christa even left us a wrapped Xmas gift which is now a part of the chalet)
Fred - Travel Agent -Algonquin Travel Ottawa -November 2002
We enjoyed the chalet and the services provided. We had a lovely hike and did not see any hunters!! I thought the chalet was very well equipped and offered a great tranquil setting. I would not hesitate to recommend the chalet to my clients as a retreat for a bit of R and R or an alternative to a hotel accommodation for golf or skiing. I think it is well located with easy access from Ottawa or other areas linked to the major highways in the Calabogie region. I also enjoyed the view from the balcony and the living room. -Fred
Joanne- November 2002
The chalet was PERFECT! We absolutely had a great time and I know for a fact that the other girls feel the same. The best was the beautiful windows, the wood stove and the wonderful and peaceful ambiance of the chalet. Thanks again!
Tina- August 2002
(Hand written note) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful Chalet. It is extremely well equipped and the property very private and peaceful. Thank you for a wonderful week in your beautiful Chalet. (Email) One other thing. The chalet was extremely well equipped. Have you considered listing on your web site the items that are included such as: a coffee maker, fans, wine glasses, pots and pans, a toaster, etc. Just an idea. That's about it. Of course we'll recommend the chalet to friends and family. (thanks for the idea Tina (Chalet supplies) )
Michelle- August 2002
Thank you letting us enjoy your chalet. The view was fantastic & so is the beach. The kids had the time of their lives.
Terry- July 2002
Thank you for the great week. We found everything as advertised. We will happily consider Peaksview in the future. We loved the fans and the trails.
Jocelyn, Jo, Rowena and Joey- April 2002
Had a Wonderful four days. The cottage is delightful and so well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Neil- March 2002
Thank you for having such a nice place. The weather cooperated and the kids enjoyed most of the week skiing at the Peaks. We enjoyed our stay and expect we will consider the Peaksview Chalet the next time we want a get away from the city. It took a little while to get use to not having a phone, especially when our cell phones were just out of range. Sure saved us a bundle when it came to the Pay TV that was available through the Bell ExpressVu.
Michel - March 2002
We had a great time. The chalet is very charming and the view is lovely. We even went skiing! My friends are already talking of returning next year – early February 2003.
Robert & Michelle - February 2002
We had a great time here this past weekend and also enjoyed two days of Skiing! We will definitely be back!
Dan - February 2002
By the way, thanks for the cottage it was a great weekend. You have a very nice and comfortable cottage, we were impressed. The view to the ski hill is really nice at night with the lights. We enjoyed an afternoon of downhill skiing and made it back to the cottage in approx 3 minutes.
Iulian - December 2001
The service was impeccable, everything was fine, new and functional. The chalet is very well located and maintained, we were enjoying every minute there. I will recommend the chalet to my colleagues and friends here in Toronto and also to our relatives and friends in Montreal. I’d like to come over there in the summer time too. Until then, thank you again and have a good and happy new year.
Vida -November 2001
Thanks for the opportunity to stay at the Chalet. It was wonderful. The weather was spectacular, but I was almost hoping for some rain or snow so that we could stay inside where it was cozy and watch the rain.
Sophia -November 2001
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful weekend - it was surreal. The view was just breath taking and the chalet was far better / more comfortable / prettier than I could every imagine. We couldn't be more thankful for your hospitality and hope to visit the chalet back soon.
Lisa and Allan -October 2001
We enjoyed our stay at the Chalet this past weekend. The chalet was exactly what we expected, it was cozy and quaint; a perfect getaway not far from home. We would love to go back and stay again sometime.
Brian and Diane -Summer 2001
Had a relaxing 10 days of R & R! This is a beautiful place to visit . I'm sure other people who rent the Chalet will enjoy it as much as we did!
Darren, Nikki and Ashley -Summer 2001
We wanted to thank you for the rental of the cottage. Our daughter enjoyed herself thoroughly and thought the slanted roofs in the bedrooms were really neat.
The beach was great....we were able to go out in a canoe and try the new kayaks as well. Thanks again
Cilily and Michael -Summer 2001
Just to let you know.......we all had a wonderful time!! Peaksview was so well equipped and comfortable, all we had to do was relax and enjoy ourselves. For sure we would not hesitate to return for another vacation, or to recommend Peaksview to othersCilily and Michael -Summer 2001
