WHAT OTHER GUESTS HAVE shared
"The Hale House is a great family/friends wilderness getaway where our nine family members were able to create a memorable holiday experience. The historic home is rustic, spacious, and homey and sits on a lake. We had the house to ourselves, but there is staff on the property round the clock readily available for help or questions. We had our own private chef so we didn’t have to give meals a second thought. They were able to accommodate all our food requests and restrictions. All the meals were awesome - fresh, abundant, with plenty of choices – and we are pretty particular foodies!! Chef Gordon also made freshly baked snacks for us to take on our hike up to Table Rock one morning. One afternoon we had a target shooting contest on the property. We also liked the BYOB policy as it made it fun and easy for everyone to have their desired beverages. We made a fire outside in the evening where we enjoyed some pre-dinner cocktails and apps. After dinner there was plenty of room to spread out in the living area, where we exchanged Secret Santa, played games and cards and set up ping pong in the screened in porch. A few miles up the road in the town of Errol we discovered LL Cote’s – an old fashioned general store on steroids where we all shopped for our Secret Santa gifts. We were hoping to snow shoe and hike some more of the many scenic trails but we ran out of time! And when it was time to check out, Chef Gordon had extra croissants for us for the ride home. We really had an amazing couple of days (including our dog!) and hope to revisit in the future." - ANNA & MICHAEL M.
"Thanks to you and the Balsams Team for the hospitality provided while staying at Hale House at The Balsams.
As innkeepers of a historic home ourselves, we truly appreciated the history of Hale House. It feels like you are stepping back in time. The home is so spacious and relaxing and I will admit to taking at least 4 naps while relaxing with our covid bubble family.
We also took advantage of the vast space. We sledded, snowshoed, hiked and even enjoyed an outside fire. The fresh 8 inches of snow while we were there was sooooooo pretty, picture perfect actually." - COLLEEN & DEAN N.
"We had a wonderful time. It was a great experience and brought back many fond memories of when the kids were younger at the Balsams. I must say that the quality of the food and service was outstanding, so kudos to Gordon and the team. I had brought a book with me but it saw little daylight as we spent one day hiking up around the golf course, one day snow mobiling through the beautiful trails of the north woods, one day in the backyard acting like little kids building a snow man, forts and having snowball fights and the final day snowshoeing on the foot and a half of fresh powder.
Being that we had 5 kids between the ages of 18 and 25 with us there was no shortage of energy so the fire pit was sparked up each day as the sun went down and board games followed soon thereafter. One of the more wonderful surprises was how great it was to have our dog Jake with us. It was awesome to watch him to run around and explore all the beauty of nature with us while we hiked and snowshoed.
I know it takes a lot of effort to make such a wonderful experience possible so please pass on our thanks." - ED & SANDY L.
