When Terra and her husband Tony discovered the home and property of 399 Chalet Beach Road in Matlock, Manitoba, they knew instantly it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Since taking ownership in 2015, they have worked tirelessly to establish a top-notch destination venue for organizations and individuals. Say goodbye to stuffy boardrooms and windowless meeting rooms. Once you experience the panoramic lake views at Chalet Point, you will change the way you do business forever!
Constructed in 2000, Chalet Point’s exquisite log home design complements the surrounding beauty of Lake Winnipeg. Perched on the “Point” of a peninsula, Chalet Point is literally surrounded by water views: the expansive Lake Winnipeg, the marshlands of the Interlake, and a shimmering golden pond. Upon arrival, you will feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Nestled among 25 acres of greenspace and forests, with one mile of private shoreline on Lake Winnipeg, the majestic views of Chalet Point do not disappoint.
Outdoor amenities include: private beaches on Lake Winnipeg, balconies and decks, screened gazebos, walking trails, outdoor gym, obstacle course, gardens, kayaking, bicycles, and meditation gardens.
Workplace retreat bookings include private use of Chalet Point’s corporate meeting space, with a board table that accommodates twelve people, two break-out rooms, three piece washroom, kitchenette, billiards table, hot tub, living room, and fireplace.
Chalet Point is the perfect place to host your next corporate retreat, team-building event, or workshop training.

My wellness retreat at Chalet Point was just what I needed: the beautiful lake views, the private beaches and walking trails, and the opportunity to leave the city behind for a couple days, unplug and soak up the serenity and peace of nature. I feel rejuvenated.
“As a senior leader in my field, I’ve worked with a lot of great visionaries, but Terra is one of those special people who can both generate great ideas and bring them to life. Her ability to inspire and her solution-focused approach have ensured the success of many innovative projects.”
As a non-profit organization working with vulnerable populations in Manitoba’s northern region, it is important to work with individuals who use a strengths-based approach and who share our goal for social justice. We saw this in Terra, and we hope to work with her again on potential future projects.
Chalet Point provides a winning combination for small businesses and organizations: professional consulting services and a venue that can’t be beat. With panoramic lake views and a cozy log home setting, this unique venue inspires creativity and innovation. Great ideas take flight at Chalet Point!
