Transforming SOJOURN Chalet: A Bathroom Renovation Journey

Updated: May 8


We're thrilled to announce the unveiling of our newly renovated bathroom, a space that has undergone a remarkable transformation and is now ready to welcome guests with open arms! Join us as we take you on a journey through the highs, the lows, and the countless hours of hard work that went into creating this luxurious sanctuary.


Dreams Turned Reality: The Journey Begins


From the moment we first laid eyes on our charming chalet in the Pocono Mountains, we knew that it held endless potential. But like any dream home, there were areas that begged for a touch of modernization and refinement. Our primary bathroom was one such space, but budget constraints initially prevented us from pursuing a complete overhaul.


Instead, we focused on making modest updates to enhance the existing features, ensuring that our short-term rental guests could enjoy a comfortable and inviting space. However, the desire to align the bathroom with the cohesive ambiance of the rest of the house persisted, and we knew that we needed to make it happen.



Turning Vision into Reality: Saving, Planning, and Designing


With determination in our hearts, we set out to make our renovation dreams a reality. Over the course of two years, we diligently set aside 3% of our rental profits, inching closer to our renovation goal with each booking. And finally, the time had come to tackle this long-awaited project.


Armed with a clear vision and a carefully curated Pinterest board, we delved into the design phase with gusto. Endless trips to home improvement stores became the norm as we searched for the perfect tiles, fixtures, and fittings to bring our vision to life. Online retailers like Amazon, Wayfair, and Lowes became our go-to destinations, offering convenience and savings as we navigated the purchasing process.


Navigating Challenges: Delays, Budget Woes, and Unforeseen Chaos


Despite our best-laid plans, the renovation journey was not without its challenges. Unexpected delays in shipping threatened to derail our carefully crafted timeline, forcing us to pivot and problem-solve on the fly. Dust seemed to infiltrate every corner of the house, turning our serene sanctuary into a construction zone chaos.


Yet, through it all, we remained steadfast in our commitment to creating a space that would truly elevate the guest experience. With the help of a reliable contractor and cleaning team, we navigated the obstacles that came our way, ensuring that the project stayed on track despite the hurdles we faced.


A Vision Realized: The Features of Our Newly Renovated Oasis

And now, as we stand on the brink of unveiling our newly renovated bathroom, we couldn't be more proud of what we've accomplished. Handcrafted European tiles adorn the walls, while a modern black vessel sink and luxurious golden fixtures add an elegant touch to the space.

Stepping into the shower, guests will be greeted by an oversized rain shower—a rejuvenating experience akin to a spa retreat. Illuminating the space is a state-of-the-art LED-lit niche, showcasing locally sourced and eco-friendly toiletries, adding both functionality and style.


One of the standout features of our revamped bathroom is the sleek sliding glass door, which not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also maximizes space efficiency. And let's not forget the pièce de résistance—the innovative light fixture with Bluetooth connectivity, offering customizable lighting options and the ability to play music, allowing guests to create the perfect ambiance for relaxation and indulgence.
