Overview

Harbor Springs Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

PLEASE IGNORE THE STANDARD RATE AND SEE OUR RATE NOTES.

We are now taking reservations for the summer. During the summer we usually rent by the week (or preferably more) and usually Saturday to Saturday, but we will consider shorter times at somewhat higher rates. Many thanks to our many returning guests and don't wait to make a reservation.

Why stay at a rental condo or motel when you can have your own delightful Chalet!

Our newer Chalet has a year-round wooded setting that is very close to the Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands ski resorts and the world class shopping, beaches, lakes, golf courses, and restaurants in the famous Petoskey-Harbor Springs area.

SUMMER and FALL are always 'high season' with the famous Harbor Springs/Good Hart/Cross Village area a few miles north and west, and Petoskey/Bay Harbor & Lake Michigan a few miles south, with many beaches, inland lakes, and great golf courses in-between.

In WINTER the Chalet's location is exceptional since the Nubs Nob parking lot is just a long block away. Nubs was named Ski Magazine's #1 Ski facility in the Midwest for the last 3 years. (For more info see the Nubs Nob webpage) and the large Boyne Highlands Ski and Golf resort is just a mile away, and together these two great ski areas have over 100 ski runs!

And if you are not familiar with this wonderful area we have numerous 'insider tips' and recommendations on restaurants and places to see and things to do.

The first floor of our spacious Chalet has a great room with a vaulted ceiling and large windows, a dining area with a table that seats 8, a modern fully equipped kitchen, a full bath with tub, a large entry/laundry area, and two good sized bedrooms each with closets and twin beds. The second floor has a comfortable loft area with stereo/TV/VCR/DVD, cable TV, broadband internet with WiFi, & movies and games;a large Master Bedroom (with a queen sized bed, large closet,vanity & sink,and desk); a fourth bedroom with twin beds and a closet, and a large bath with shower.

The Chalet is beautifully furnished and decorated and has an Up North warm wood interior with many vaulted ceilings and skylights (night snow making can be seen from the master bedroom skylight). The kitchen is fully equipped, the laundry has a full-size washer & dryer, the entry area has ample places for coats and gear, and there is a large front and side deck with a table, chairs and a gas grill.

This is not a typical rental property and is only available certain times throughout the year. PLEASE: No Pets and No Smoking. Families, adult groups and longer term guests are preferred.

Many return year after year and comments from past guests include: “You represented your chalet perfectly on VRBO. It was exactly as I expected and we had a wonderful time.” D.D. “It was a perfect setup for our family and we would love to do it again.” A.L. 'Awesome chalet!' C.C. 'One of our best family vacations ever!' L.B. 'What a wonderful time we had in your beautiful and accommodating chalet' C.W. 'Thank you... We had a wonderful time. It is the perfect family spot.' J.B. 'We are use to being pampered and this chalet is perfect.' J.L.

About Dan

I was born in the area and spent 60+ years as a summer person. Now we spend over half the year Up North.

The area has a magical hold on many of us, including Ernest Hemingway who spent all of his early summers on Walloon Lake just south of Petoskey.

Why Dan chose Harbor Springs

When our children were younger we all skied at Nubs Nob and the kids could walk back to the Chalet when they were tired or the slopes were crowded. And in the other seasons it has a secluded wooded setting but is still close to everything.

What makes this chalet unique

While fairly new with vaulted ceilings, the wood walls give the Chalet a warm Up North feeling. This is not a typical 'rental' property.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Our two families rented this for a ski weekend and we were very pleased with the chalet. A true up north feel. The kids absolutely loved it, especially the little loft just for them. Very spacious for a group of eight. It was exceptionally clean and everything you could need was provided. Very close to Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands.

The owner was great to work with and we would love to rent here again!

Exceptional Chalet in the Woods - Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is lovely. My Mom (89) and I enjoyed our time together here.

A few miles to Downtowns - Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Many fun things

to do. Many great places to dine. Wonderful kitchen here to dine in also.

The chalet is perfectly presented. It was spotless. We enjoyed Harbor

Springs Winery and Pond Hill Farms.

My son is a scholarship student and performing at Bayview Music Festival. Don't miss

Bayview - performances all summer long!

Thank you D. Rupp for allowing us the privilege to rent your charming chalet in the woods. We would like to come back!

Wonderful Chalet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and another couple stayed in this wonderful chalet over Labor Day weekend. We were Up North for the Labor Day Bridge Walk at Mackinaw, but did not want to stay in the immediate Mackinaw City area. This chalet and location proved to be a wonderful choice.

The listing presents the property very well. The chalet is very well furnished and had everything we needed during our stay. It provides a very warm and cozy environment for coffee and conversation in the mornings and a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine, playing games at the awsome and unique dining table.

The 2-story layout is perfect for two couples, allowing each to have their own space.

The neighborhood felt very secure and people we saw on our morning walks were very friendly. The location, just a short drive to lakes, golf courses, shopping, dining, skiing was perfect for us.. So much to do, so little time to do it all.

Thank you Dan and family for allowing us to use your wonderful Michigan vacation home. We hope to have the opportunity to visit again.

Week in comfort

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property while my husband & a few buddies were competing in the Michigan Amateur golf tournament. It's a very long & stressful week filled with golf from as early as 7:30am in the morning to as late as 9pm at night! Having this cottage to call "home" for the week made it so much nicer! No worrying about where to eat after a very long day! The beds were all very comfortable & they had all the amenities available (linens, paper products, soaps, etc). I reluctantly post this because I know the more popular it gets the less likely we'll be able to rent it again (which we're considering for the next tournament in September). I promise you won't be disappointed. That being said...the ONLY downside is there really is nothing to do if you don't golf (or ski I suppose). There is no fire pit outside & considering the wooded site, you probably wouldn't want to sit outside in nice weather without mosquito repellant!

couldn't have chosen better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was so more than pleased to stay at this easily 'home away from home'! so close to both Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands. Picturesque and private! All the amenities of home. It makes you scoff at hotels for the same cost!! This perfect 'landing' couldn't leave you asking for more. All the comforts of home and then some. We felt so welcome and comfortable....like we were renting from friends... you won't go wrong renting this perfectly situated and located - A-frame, up-north-cozy and well supplied, roomy 'lodge'. I hesitate to rave so much because I'd love to keep it secret!
