Blue Mountain Chalets: The Benefits of Choosing a Chalet vs. Hotel


1. Chalets Offer Significant Savings

One of the biggest benefits of choosing a chalet instead of a hotel is the fact that you will simply have much more space – often for a price comparable to that of a one-room hotel! This is especially true if you book for one week or longer.

For example, an entire chalet-like townhome that sleeps 6 guests, located right by the Blue Mountain slopes, will only come out to $155 per night for an 8-night stay. Compare that to a hotel, which often costs $250-$350+ for a suite (typically one room with a seating area), and the savings are huge.


You can often get an entire chalet for prices comparable to a luxury suite in a hotel!


Not only that, but chalets come with everything you need – multiple bedrooms, entertainment spaces, and full kitchens. The average American spends $33 per day on food while on vacation. Convert that to Canadian Dollars, and that’s $44 per day! For one week, that’s approximately $300 spend on food alone – and that’s on the lower end of the spectrum.

A family of four could easily rack up over $1000 in food if every meal was spent at a nice restaurant. When you book a chalet, you can choose to cook all or some of your meals right in your ‘home’ for the week. That will help you save a significant amount of your budget.

2. Larger Spaces For Families and Groups

Chalets offer multiple bedrooms – ensuring everyone has a great night’s sleep!


The Blue Mountains attract visitors and tourists from all over Ontario, Canada, and the world! In the winter alone, Blue Mountain sells over 750,000 lift tickets per season – and that’s only counting those who visit for the slopes!

The Blue Mountain area is a place that includes tons of family-friendly activities, such as Plunge! Aquatic Centre – a giant water park perfect for kids of all ages. Or, if you’re into family hikes, there are lots of kid-friendly trails and places to explore, like the Scenic Caves!

Because it’s such a great place to bring the entire family, you will want to ensure you have accommodations that can suit your immediate family – or your extended family too! If you are visiting with a group, it can be hard to fit 4+ people into a single hotel room.

You may also not love the idea of sharing a room with your friend known for snoring! A chalet offers multiple bedrooms and typically 2-3+ bathrooms, so you and all of your friends have a bit of space to yourselves.  


3. Chalets Provide a Private and Quiet Experience

Unlike a hotel, where you are likely to run into many people as you go to and from your room, or have to wait in a crowded elevator to get to your floor, a chalet provides a quiet and private experience for you and your whole group.

Even if you choose to stay in a ski-in/ski-out townhouse chalet located right on the mountain, you will still get a much more private experience than a room in a busy hotel. The Blue Mountain area offers both the hustle and bustle of busy, city life when you visit the Village – but it also is filled with plenty of green space, forests, and quiet retreats.

A chalet in the Blue Mountains allows you to be close to all of the excitement by the slopes or in the Village but provides a quiet place to retreat to after a long day. You won’t have to worry about dozens of noisy neighbours or guests who stay up until 1 or 2 in the morning!  


4. A Luxury Space To Enjoy Your Vacation In Style

Many people only get to go on a big vacation once in a while – whether that’s every year or every few years. Why not spend the time you have away in luxury?


Chalets and similar vacation rental homes can give you a taste of luxury


A chalet offers a luxurious experience, and many come with extra features such as hot tubs, private pools, or even an indoor sauna! Vacations are often the place where families splurge a little, and many families or groups feel it’s worth getting larger, luxury spaces so that their entire vacation is more comfortable from start to finish.  


5. Greater Selection of Accommodations Available

From modern rental homes to traditional, private chalets – there are so many options!


When it comes to hotels, if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all! Of course, that is a bit of a generalization – there are many unique hotels out there. However, most hotels are part of larger chains and follow similar formats. The interiors will generally look the same – when you think ‘hotel room’ it’s pretty easy to envision what that looks like.

However, if you choose a chalet, you will get to pick from a wide variety of different styles and sizes of vacation rental homes. From rustic townhouses located right on the Mountain to picture-perfect chalets and cottage-style accommodations located on lots of land in forested retreats, when it comes to chalets, there really is something for everyone.

For example, at Blue Mountain Lodges, our largest 5-Star accommodations can sleep up to 20 guests, while our smaller 1-2 bedroom condos and townhouses are perfect for couples or small families. Whether you have a big group or a small family, prefer to be right by the action or want full privacy, there is a chalet for you!

“Just what we needed! An affordable and spacious chalet for a girls weekend away. We had some problems with the hot tub when we first arrived but maintenance came immediately and fixed the challenge (it was really more our challenge than the hot tub). I would definitely return.”
