If you’ve already been a guest at one of my Innsbrook rental chalets, you probably have a good idea why I love Innsbrook so much and rent and sell vacation properties there. If you haven’t stayed with us yet, I can’t wait for you to experience it.

For me, it’s all about disconnecting from your busy, everyday schedule and reconnecting — with your loved ones, with nature, with yourself.

We built our first home at Innsbrook in 2005. I wanted my 3 kids to experience summer vacation and the outdoors the way I did as a child — unhurried and unprogrammed. I added two chalets to my inventory in 2008 and 2010 to give others the opportunity of an Innsbrook vacation without the commitment of buying.

Innsbrook has been the perfect place for my family to have a simple life in the summer time. Together, we explored the trails, swam, canoed, biked and barbecued. We stayed up late to see the stars, built campfires and got up with the sun to look for bluebirds and deer as we ate breakfast on the screened-in porch.

Today, all of my kids are teenagers. You know how teens can be, but thankfully, they still love family time at Innsbrook. We have our favorite spots and our traditions. A big night out is heading over to the Farmhouse Field for an outdoor concert.

Whether you’re thinking about buying at Innsbrook and just want to try out the lifestyle, or just need a quick getaway for a couple of days, your family can make memories and start traditions there too. My rental chalets are open year-round (if you last visited in the summer, I can tell you that winter in the woods is amazing — and spring and autumn are beautiful, too.) Interesting in purchasing your own chalet? Just let me know and I’ll show you some favorites.
