3,200 SQ. FT. LUXURY LOG HOME MINUTES FROM LAKE MICHIGAN

Harbor Springs Chalet Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 14-20)

The Victoria, tucked into nature and surrounded by Boyne Highland's world-class ski and golf resort, is available for year-round vacationing. Our new 3,200 square-foot full log chalet boasts breathtaking views of the resort overlooking Lois Lane at the top of Boyne Highlands Andover Club. The Victoria holds the distinction of being the highest residence at the Highlands and is truly ski-in, ski-out. Our backyard runs parallel with Lois Lane trail.

This 5 bedroom/4 bathroom home with additional loft space for sleeping, features an open floor plan on the main level with vaulted great room, gas fireplace and huge windows creating the perfect luxury retreat for your friends and family. Catering to large groups, you'll find 2 suites with queen beds and private baths and 2 bedrooms each with 2 full beds. The 5th bedroom also has a queen bed and the loft features a futon and a chair that pulls out to a child's bed. Finally, we added 6 cots that can be set up in any of the bedrooms or the loft.

The gourmet kitchen includes everything you'll need to prepare and enjoy great meals in a setting that is perfect for entertaining. The huge deck overlooking the slopes features a six-person hot tub, a gas grill and a large patio set. And, you'll love the entertainment room with pool table, air hockey, gas fireplace, flat screen TV and a second full-size refrigerator. Enjoy all the beauty and activities that Northern Michigan has to offer in accommodations that are second to none.

Boyne Highlands features 54 meticulously groomed slopes for all levels of skiing ability and a terrain park and halfpipe with rails and jumps. They have consistently received top honors for best mountain in the Midwest by Ski Magazine. Miles of state snowmobile trails are easily accessed less than a mile from the main lodge. Snowmobiles and trailers may be stored at the main lodge parking lot and are available for rent at Country Wide Services.

Boyne Highlands offers four world-class golf courses including Heather Course, ranked one of the top 100 courses in America by Golf Magazine. You'll also find hiking and mountain biking trails, horseback riding and tennis courts on site at the resort. Within 5 minutes from the resort you'll find several beaches including Petoskey State Park and Zorn Park and Zoll Street in downtown Harbor Springs.

Petosky State Park, minutes away on the north end of Little Traverse Bay, is situated on 305 scenic acres. The mile-long sandy beach is famed for its 'million-dollar sunsets.' Other amenities include picnic areas, paved bike paths, hiking, fishing and more. Boat launches are available at nearby Harbor Springs and Petoskey.

Harbor Springs and Petoskey are well-known as pristine resort communities. Harbor Springs, the deepest natural harbor in the Great Lakes, is a haven for boaters. Charming is the best way to describe the downtown areas that boasts boutique shopping, varied dining, marinas and beaches. Transient boat slips are available at both the Harbor Springs and Petoskey marinas.

The famed 'Tunnel of Trees' located on M119 on the coast of Lake Michigan is beautiful during any season, but especially spectacular during the fall. Be sure to visit historic Legs Inn as you enter Cross Village for an authentic polish meal and an amazing view.

The Mackinac bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge between ancorages, is only a 30 minute drive from our home. Visit the many waterfalls and lighthouses throughout the UP or take a day trip to historic Mackinac Island.

My husband, our friends and I have been taking annual ski trips to Boyne Highlands for the past decade. One year, we decided to try Shanty Creek. We loved the house we stayed in but were not so impressed with the resort. Our solution: build a luxury log home at Boyne Highlands that easily accommodated large groups like ours with the convenience of ski-in/ ski-out access right out our back door. In December of 2007 we completed construction on the Victoria.

Jessica Wynn purchased this chalet in 2007

We wanted to build our home at Boyne Highland in Harbor springs because it is a four seasons resort. It is perfectly situated between downtown Harbor Springs and downtown Petoskey. We enjoy the great skiing and golf, but we also enjoy hiking, mountain biking, horseback trail riding, the zip line course, tennis, swimming and dining at the Highlands. The amenities at Boyne Highland are excellent. There is always something to do. And, occasionally we make the drive to nearby Boyne Mountain for disk golf and the indoor water park... Avalanche Bay. We love to visit all of the beaches, shops, eateries and nature preserves in Harbor Springs and Petoskey. And our favorite place to dine al fresco is Leggs Inn. We have also traveled to the UP hunting waterfalls and lighthouses and a favorite place to bring new guests is Mackinac Island

The privacy that this home offers is second to none yet you are less than half a mile away from all the resort's amenities.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 13 (8 adults, 5 children under 9) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Victoria this summer. The setting was beautiful. The house was spacious, well-appointed and comfortable, allowing for togetherness as well as private space for downtime. The amenities provided really enhanced the experience, whether it was time for a meal, a game, or simply, relaxation. The area activites and attractions offered something for everyone, regardless of age.

Also, the fact that the entire rental process was handled so professionally and smoothly, from beginning to end, was greatly appreciated.

Everyone agreed it was our best family vacation. We hope to be able to do it all over again someday!

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
We have never stayed in a ski in/ski out property before. We loved it. I don't ski, I stay back with our two young children so it was so nice for my husband and son to just pop in at lunch. And in the morning just put their skis on and go out the back door. This location was amazing. The slope is literally outside the back door. The house was beautiful and very clean. The internet worked really good which was a relief for my husband because he had to do some work at night. This house seems perfect for any season. The owners are amazing to work with. We had a great time. My kids asked if we could move there. : )

GREAT SKI HOME

  • 5 of 5
This home was perfect for our group of 17 during our annual ski trip. The house was exceptionally clean, the setting was gorgeous (ski-in/ski-out at the top of a nice long green run), and we can't wait to return next year. Lots of fridge space, nice game room, only one other house nearby. Very highly recommended!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT SERVICE!

  • 5 of 5
We travelled from England in August, along with our daughter and family to stay at the Victoria for a week. Our son and family, who live in Michigan, also joined us. We had a wonderful time with all the family. The house is spacious, clean and well equipped. The location is perfect with good facilities at the resort. Our grandchildren loved going to the swimming pool in the village every day. They also loved the games room in the house. We have rented houses in Michigan in the past but this has to be the best. Jessica was so efficient and organised, everything went very smoothly. The information provided proved very helpful, especially with us travelling from England. There is everything you need at the house, including laundry detergent. One thing to be noted, there are stairs from the great room leading down to the basement and we had a one year old who was crawling around. We were worried about her falling down the stairs but found that one of the spare cribs made a very useful stair gate. Harbor Springs is a beautiful area, plenty to do. The kids loved the chocolate tour at Kerwin's chocolate factory in Petoskey. I would definitely recommend the Victoria as a vacation property to spend quality family time. Thank you Jessica, we hope to be back some day.

SUMMER FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The cabin was on the end of a paved road and there was only 1 other house around it. The location was perfect. Far enough from anything to be secluded and quiet and close enough to Petoskey/Harbor Springs that if you needed anything it was not a long journey to the store. Jessica answered all my questions promptly and professionally. She provided a list of ponts of interest and is available with a quick phone call. I would highly recommend this home to anyone who is looking to vacation in Nortwest Michigan. The house was beautiful. My only comment other than praise is the great room sounds carried throughout the house and it became a little loud if very many people were talking in the room. Beds were comfortable/clean and the deck was wonderful. Thank you again for opening up your home to share with our family.

GREAT TIME WITH FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented the log home for two weeks during the month of June 2013. I do not think I can say enough good things about it, it was very spacious for our family. We loved the fact that there were bathrooms off the bedrooms. The hot tub and the basement were definitely a bonus. Our children and grandchildren just absolutely loved it. Very spacious kitchen area and great room where our family gathered and we absolutely loved the wrap around deck. Wonderful grill and table for outdoor eating. The location is awesome, lots of privacy and the fact that you can use that amenities at Boyne Highlands made it a great two weeks.. We definitely are looking forward to returning next year.
