Ann outdoor fire pit in the back yard is perfect for star gazing and making S'mores!

We started fishing for Steelhead and Salmon over 25 years ago and fell in love with the Northwest corner of Michigan for fishing and for family trips to see the colors in the fall. Our family and friends have come to love the Chalet as the perfect get away for any season. I hope you will, too.
Chris purchased this house in 2005
The Chalet is located in the middle of where you want to be when you travel to Northwest Michigan. It's a block off Crystal Lake, it's 6 minutes to Beulah, 15 minutes to Lake Michigan, 20 minutes to Crystal Mountain, 25 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes and the great towns on Leelenau Peninsula, and 40 minutes to Traverse City. Two fishing and canoeing rivers, the Platte and the Betzie, are very close. Frankfort has an A&W, a family favorite, and many other attractions.
The Chalet has lots of room and the comforts of your own home to spread out for a very relaxing vacation. It's well equiped with all the kitchen and grilling supplies you need to craft a gourmet dinner or a casual meal. The large deck overlooks a beautiful meadow - if you're lucky the deer and turkeys will pay you a visit!
The accommodations at the Beulah Chalet were outstanding during our visit in August! From the kitchenware/supplies to the towels, linens and detergents, our extended family felt right at home. The Chalet was able to provide for our large group and make use of the lovely deck and view. We saw deer, birds, chipmunks and even stray cows that wandered through the meadow! Bonfires (wood provided) were a treat in the evenings as well as the use of grills provided. It truly felt like home away from home!
Other activities during our stay included canoeing the Platte River, golfing, jet skis, putt putt golf, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, antiquing in Beulah, shopping in Frankfort, breakfast at The Cherry Hut and a delicious dinner at The Manitou Restaurant.
We would highly recommend the Chalet for larger families/groups. The owner has thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible!
We had a great stay at the Beulah Chalet! It's a large house with plenty of space. Our kids loved loved the bunk room and it was nice to have plenty of room to spread out for the adults too.
The kitchen and bathrooms, etc. had everything you would need and the outdoor space was also very nice.
And it was centrally located around lots of things - we canoed, went to the drive in, biked, checked out Sleeping Bear Dunes and more!
We would definitely recommend it!
This is such a fun and comfortable house, and the owners have furnished it so nicely, it felt more like staying with friends than a rental. The style and floor plan are very unique, kind of euro/retro/chic, lots of decks, very private and quiet setting. We are a family group of 8 adults and 8 teens, and stayed for a week in mid-July 2012. There are lots of convenient closets and shelves, enough bedding, pillows, towels for several houses, and the kitchen/pantry supplies defy adequate praise. We left the windows open on the upper floors all day and night and enjoyed the fresh air.
Great location, we went to Manistee, Traverse City, Frankfort and took multiple trips to Sleeping Bear Dunes, all 30 minute drives or less. Beulah, a cool little town, and the city beach on Crystal Lake are 5 minutes down the road. There is a boat rental marina on Crystal Lake about 2 miles from the house. Benzonia and Honor are about 6 or 7 miles away, groceries and restaurants are convenient in all these small towns. We rode bikes from Beulah to Lake Michigan at Frankfort and back on the trail, which runs along Crystal Lake and through the woods.
The VRBO listing and photos are accurate, the house is very clean and well-maintained. Chris sent a nice set of instructions before we left home and we had no problems whatsoever. We watched deer in the meadow daily. A black squirrel and several entertaining crows apparently live nearby. We cooked smores over a campfire in the backyard, the firewood and fire ring were ready for use. In short, our family had a fabulous time at the Beulah Chalet. Some teens might think they are a little old to appreciate the bunk beds upstairs, but ours had so much fun talking and playing games late into the night, there were no complaints. We all agreed that we would love to stay here again.
Just came back …. Rented house for 4 of July weekend, got there on the 1st, and right away got in love with the scenery. The Chalet is hidden in the woods; it is so quiet and beautiful….
We were a group of 16, and have enough beds for everybody. Two kitchens, makes it easier when you travel with kids, we used both. Kids loved the build in bunk beds that was their private hideaway place from adults. The house is filled with more than enough pillows, sheets, blankets, towels, and even with all the spices in the kitchen, are ready for you to use.
Amazing!!!! Loved it!!! Without any doubt would rent it again.
Just stayed in this house last weekend with three other families to enjoy skiing on Crystal Mountain and the house was perfect. The kids (ages 11 to 17) all loved the built in bunk beds. The bedrooms were so nice and clean and the beds were very comfortable. I absolutely love the antiques and all the woodwork in the house. They provide you with more than enough towels, pillows, sheets, etc. I was amazed by all the kitchen ware, spices, and everything you need to cook up a meal. We had 17 people in our group and this place was PERFECT! We absolutely loved it and would rent it again.
