Beautiful cedar ski chalet with large deck, located in woodsy area. New 2006 back deck with with 7 person jacuzzi on it; get ready to relax after some skiing. Chalet is practically new with full kitchen. Billiards, ping pong, foosball and video game in the basement. Across street from Boyne Highlands Ski and Golf, the largest resort in the midwest. 20 minutes away from beautiful bay harbor exclusive up north golfing on the edge of Lake Michigan.
Rentals available for weekend, long weekend or full week. You will not be disappointed. Winter fills up extremely fast for skiing, you can walk to the hill. Very popular in the fall to watch the trees change color. Summer great for the beach and Mackinac Island. Great shopping in downtown Petoskey.
Great Home for a family Christmas vacation. We had 8 people stay here very comfortably. We went downhill skiing, cross country skiing and a little snowshoeing on the north country trail. Kids loved the game room and the adults loved the hot tub.
Upstairs master room: King Bed
Upstairs Loft area: Double Photon
Main level room 1: 2 twin beds (We pushed together)
Main level room 2: 2 twin beds
I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a great northern Michigan adventure.
We just had a group stay at the chalet for a snowboarding trip last weekend. This place was so great and walking distance to the slopes at Nub's Nob. The owner, Guy was very helpful with setting up everything for our trip. If any questions came up, he responded to emails within minutes. It had plenty of places to sleep and all the entertainment we needed for the weekend. The hot tub was a huge bonus to the rental, especially after going snowboarding! I have never played so much ping pong in my life. Guy, even had his maintenance guy drop off a new ping pong net and paddles during our stay. The location really worked out well for a trip to Odawa Casino on Saturday too. The casino had a shuttle service that picked us up right at the chalet. The house rental was equipped with everything we needed for an awesome weekend! Thanks again Guy! We hope to rent again next year!
We stayed at this great chalet in January, we are regular skiers at Nubs Nob and decided to find a location closer to the ski field, we were not dissapointed! Guy has the chalet setup extremely well for groups, we skied during the day and relaxed at night, the kids totally entertained in the games room, whilst the adults relaxed in the hot tub, TV not required!
My wife and I love winter. It is our favorite season of the year, mostly because we get out to play in the snow. If you can imagine those classic Hemingway stories of skiing and snow shoeing, then this gem of a home is that ideal realized. Everything you need is here, plus those lovely little extras that add up to a winter getaway that you won't want to leave. We have skied in the Alps, the Rockies, Lake Tahoe and Utah, but this cabin and the surrounding hills never get old. Our fifth visit to Guy's immaculate cabin starts soon, and we are as excited as ever. Viva sweet winter!
We rented this house for the week of New Years with 2 adults and 4 children. The location was perfect for what we were looking for, since we spent most of our time at Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands. It is located in a cute little subdivision with lots of trees. The house was nicely decorated for the holidays including outdoor Christmas lights which was a nice surprise.
The house had plenty of room for 6 people and the beds were extremely comfortable, which is not very common in other rental homes we have stayed in. We ate most meals at the house and the kitchen was nicely stocked with pots/pans and tableware. We enjoyed the fireplace and especially the hot tub after skiing/boarding most days. There was plenty of room for all our equipment and ski attire in the basement. Also, the game room in the basement was a big hit with everyone, especially the kids. We watched more football than movies, but it was nice to have all those movies and board games available. The house also has wifi, which all the kids were happy to hear when we arrived!
Guy was easily reachable and very accommodating in all communications. We really enjoyed our stay at his property and highly recommend this home.
Wonderful is the only way to describe this place. It was perfect for all ages (we had 4-57 years old). We were able to do a variety of things at the cottage or around town. The place had a large number of movies and games if you were relaxing in the cottage. Very close to Nubs Nob, perfect for a walker in the summer or skier in the winter. Location is perfectfor day get aways, Mackinaw, Petoskey and Indian River.
Our family will definately return.
Everything you could want to do is nearby including Petoskey State Park with the sand dunes. Also nearby are Jeep rides through the sand dunes. 30 minutes away from the historic Mackinac Island and the upper peninsula. Great place to vacation for winter or summer.
