Perfect for peace and solitude

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting, and I must say that everything was perfect. If your looking for peace and solitude, you can't ask for anything better. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had. I hope to make a week of it next year.

Winter Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This Chalet Retreat was everything we were looking for, plus more. If you enjoy northern Michigan this is the perfect place to stay. Secluded but not rustic by any means. We were able to snowmobile right from the chalet. Not having to trailer to a drop site is so convenient. The homeowners were great to work with - My husband is already planning a return visit for next winter! Thanks again, Carole - we had a wonderful time.

Not a Happy Experience.

  • 1 of 5
Very Inconsiderate - Owners did not have to path to the cabin shoveled (12 inches plus) snow to get to the cabin -My husband did that after driving 13 hours. . . Nor did the road to the cabin get snow plowed everyday as they stated it would, which lead to us getting stuck a couple of times. . . . Very small hot water tank which ran out of hot water daily; Toilets would not flush unless the plunger was used, washing machine is rusted - unusable (well I wasn't putting my cloth in it) and the sheets on the downstairs bed were not clean when we arrived. Cabin and view are beautiful but would not recommend renting due to the poor up keep and owner indifference.

Owner's Response: Dear Mendy and Trevor:
I just received your comments on our property. I am so sorry your experience was so challenging and feel bad that we were not able to fulfill your expectations. The winter in Michigan this year, although the snow is beautiful, has been difficult to keep up on.
Thank you for your input. I appreciate your time to help us create a better experience for our guests.
Sincerely,
Carole
