Gary purchased this chalet in 2005
I desingned and built this hosue for my famliy get away.
Very Comfortale and Private Setting
Secluded and Quiet
Our stay was nothing short of spectacular. You have a beautiful home (we all LOVED the glassed wall and cathedral ceilings). The fire warmed up the main space beautifully and efficiently; we appreciated that although your home felt spacious, it was cozy enough that noone was ever out of earshot; the natural light the home allowed for made mornings easy and inviting; the surround sound was indeed amazing and made our movie viewing feel like a theater experience; and the area around the home is quiet and most definitely beautiful (especially after a fresh fall of snow). And the skiing--wow! What a thrill--but that's the last time I go down a slope titled "Surprise"! Surprise indeed it was and our excursion to Schuss made for some hilarious stories at dinner.
We had a great time at this house. Nice kitchen setup to prepare meals and enjoy association in a n open setting. Would definately stay again.
There was 5 of us and we loved the view, the wild turkeys, the horse farm and riders. The house has great views, comfortable beds, great decor, was very clean. We had a James Bond marathon each night after coming home from playing golf or tourist in the greater northern MI. Great TV and surround sound. We had a honda pilot and a toyota prius, since was summertime we both could make it up the drive and around the house with no problem. If have more vehicles or don't want to drive on the sandy driveway you can park at the end of the blacktop and walk in. I can see in the winter you would need a 4wd or all wheel drive if there is snow. Gary is wonderful to work with and in his contract he mentions the high mineral content in the water. Beware: take your own drinking water for drinking, making coffee etc, the sulpher and iron content is high in the water. I would have given this place 5 stars but I can't recommend using the clothes washer since the minerals will stain your clothes, one of our friends find out the hard way, you will notice it on the towels. There is a laundry mat across from Glen's Market. We recommend Short's Brewery, Toonies, The smokehouse and Moka's in town. Over on Torch Lake is Docksides, typical bar type food but neat place to seat outside. The area is mainly golf, mountain biking, hiking and boating/kayaking in the summer. If get a chance travel a short distance to visit Traverse City and Charlevoix. If want to find petoskey rocks go to Fisherman Island State Park just south of Charlevoix.
The Chalet was wonderful and the views were amazing. We were gifted with about 6 inches of fresh snow on top of the 2' already on the ground for our ski trip which made it perfect. We visited Schuss and Nubs Nob. There is ample room for 10 people if you want to double up in beds or 6 beds total. The cabin is decorated nicely. I love the old ski decorations and the prints. The satelite was nice to have and the DVD collection was ample (love me some James Bond). The only thing I would add is that if you are going to do alot of cooking (which we do), bring mixing bowls, electric mixer and your own crock pot etc. The previous guests left alot of condiments, popcorn, coffee, spices, pop and adult beverages of various flavors to greet us. That was very nice to find after a long drive. Heed the warning about AWD or 4WD. The road can be difficult, but my AWD had no problems. The drive was plowed the morning after the main snow came.
Thank you for sharing your home with us and we will be looking forkward to visiting next year for our annual trip.
Great house, we would absoultley rent it again, near golf, lakes and a nice little village
We had a group of people from Chicago and Detroit come out for a ski trip, and this place was perfect. You definitely need 4 wheel drive, or else you will get stuck on the road to the cabin. The cabin is located at the end of a quiet road, with spectacular views and plenty of deer to see. The cabin is modern, with lots of natural lighting, very clean and organized and everyone slept very well. There is food left in the fridge from previous tenants, and we had over-shopped, so we left a few things that may come handy for the next tenants. The price is perfect when split amongst a group, and Shanty Creek and Bellaire are just minutes away.
Spent a weekend here with a group of friends for our annual northern trip. The home was spacious and everyone had their own space. The home was pretty clean and there were plenty of supplies. We really enjoyed being in a secluded area that was very close to Shanty Creek. It was recommnended that you have all-wheel drive but if you're going in the winter, it should be changed to required. There are many steep, curvy hills to get to the home and we got stuck after it snowed the first night. There was one TV in the home that only had two channels and the stereo system didn't work which prevented us from watching movies. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay!
