Sir Branson’s Chalet

Enter into, The Lodge,
a blissful chalet and hang your stresses on the heated boot warmer rack. Bam
Bam, the adorable lodge dog (cocoa colored flat coated retriever) runs over,
tail wagging and then goes to seek affection from another guest in the cushy
light-filled living room complete with roaring fire—which leads to a
large terrace decked out with stylish furniture, an outdoor grill, hot tub and
skating rink for kids! 

I really loved my stay
here and rank it in my all time favorites worldwide for its range of comforts,
style and service. “Home-away-from home” is overused, but it so
describes my stay here and the other guests I asked as well. The 5 min walk to
the Medran ski lift and 10 min walk to center of town make it handy (but NB:
while views are very pretty, it is not as high up as one may expect from
Branson). Generously sized bedrooms and suites are spread out over three
floors, and include a duplex and one kids bedroom with six(!) bunk-beds. There
are 7 bedrooms & 2 suites total. Underfloor heating throughout the chalet
is just one of the extra touches, which also include: a spa/ treatment room with
impressive menu, a huge library of adult and kiddie DVDs and games, WiFi
throughout and a swimming pool, steam and sauna. Kids are looked after super
well here—they transform into “Lodge Rangers” who go on
treasure hunts, have paint parties, story breaks and of course, out on piste
with ski instructors.  Love it.  Highly recommend! (and as wonderful
in Summer)

Rates: €350 and up per
room nightly bed & breakfast basis. Seasonal rates apply so do inquire.
