INVITING LAKE MICHIGAN CHALET ONLY 90 MILES FROM CHICAGO!

Stevensville Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 10)

Chill out, put your feet up, and relax on the shore of Lake Michigan, in Unit # 8 , at the Chalet on the Lake compound, 90 miles from Chicago.

Located in the town of Stevensville, directly off I-94, Exit 22, John Beers Road, we are positioned for easy access and convenience. Between Michigan's harbor country and the vineyards, we are close to shopping and restaurants, from Stevensville, to downtown St. Joseph, to the Starbuck's in Martin's Hilltop supermarket, beachfront living has never been easier.

Our 3 bedroom air-conditioned chalet unit offers all the amenities of home, including outside seating, directly on Lake Michigan. The compound is nestled between 2 beaches, has 2 pools, plus a 1 foot deep toddler pool, tennis, volleyball, and basketball courts, as well as a duck pond and playgrounds.

My husband has owned and operated a hardware store in Chicago's Old Town for over 35 years, as well as served on the chamber of commerce as president + board member for many years.

I have owned + operated my interior design showroom for 16 years, and served on our neighborhood park's advisory council as president + board member for over a decade.

Combining talents, we raised 4 children and developed real estate projects from purchase + gut, to finished marketable homes.

We are now grandparents sharing the Michigan shore with another generation.

Kim Tipre purchased this chalet in 1992

When our youngest was one, we happened upon the Chalets for our first rental season. As part of the 7 unit family group, the chalets became an annual reunion.

When the lake-front unit became available for purchase, we bought. That was 20 years ago.

The care the management provides, as well as our interest in having our guests returning year after year, has made a visit to Unit 8, as well as the Chalet on the Lake Compound memorable.

How can you beat 90 miles from Chicago? Easy access off of I-90? Being surrounded by protected wetlands limits any new building on both sides of the compound, so nature surrounds us, yet a quick jump in the car offers restaurants in Stevensville, and plenty of shopping down I-90 towards + in St. Joseph.

Downtown St. Joe's has the boardwalk and summer art fair, as well as plenty of shopping, restaurants + the children's museum. Fireworks can be seen all across the lake's edge on the 4th of July.

Are you a golfer? Courses are close by. Take a tour of the vineyards, or the Cook Nuclear plant. Captain Mike's, family fun with bumper boat and go-carts, is a quick trip to Exit 16.

Take in a movie at the Cinema at Exit 29.

I personally love the down time, after an afternoon at one of the pools or beach, a game of volleyball or tennis, just to sit, listen to the waves, + let the sun warm my face. Life is slower, easier, and although I'll soon be back at work in the big city, hanging out on the Michigan shore replenishes me.

Oh, and have I mentioned the sunsets?

THE VIEW, THE VIEW, THE VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
A group of six moms from three states descended upon the chalet for a weekend away. We found the rental to be clean, comfortable and as described. However, you cannot fully describe the VIEW. We loved falling asleep at night to the waves of Lake Michigan. The decor is typical "up north" Michigan feel, with knotty pine and thick wood pieces. The view is incredible and the lake is just a few steps outside the back door. We loved walking up and down the beach, enjoyed each having our own bed and the thoughtful details like games and books if you wanted to do so. Great view of the St. Joseph lighthouse down the way, too. The stairs are a bit steep, so I would be nervous if little ones needed to sleep upstairs, as the only bathroom is on the main floor. But it worked for us nicely. Owner was fantastic to work with and we hope to be back! St. Joseph is close by for shopping, dining and beach. All you need for gas and food is in Stevensville and is right off the freeway, very easy for all of us to find, coming from three states!

BEAUTIFUL BEACH VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been coming to Chalet on the Lake for 25 years and we are already looking forward to next year's trip. We have stayed in this particular Chalet for so many years that I have lost count, but it is our favorite! Over the years there have been many upgrades, including the kitchen cabinets and counters, A/C in the bedrooms and family room, shleves that double as storage under the tv and comfy bedding to name a few. Plus you can't beat the view from the patio - it is incredible! We have spent many hours sitting on the patio watching the colorful sunsets, reading, playing board games and enjoying a cocktail or two. This is a great place to rent if you are looking for a fun and relaxing vacation at the beach!
