Overview

Oden Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12

**SPECIAL - 'Pay For 2 and Stay 3 Nights'** (applies during off season only - Nov, Dec, March, April, May)

Ideally located, you are invited to this Petoskey Michigan Lakefront Ski Chalet Vacation Rental of unmatched beauty and unrivaled seasonal activities. This Chalet offers year attractions including water sports steps from your door, great snowmobiling to miles of trails, skiing, golfing and absolutely gorgeous views of the lake.

With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on you list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the Odawa Casino in town.

The shared resort offers 450 feet of waterfront access, with a one-of-a-kind shallow, hard bottom, sandy beach that stretches out at least 300 ft., with only waist deep water. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake. Sorry. no pets allowed.

- Inquire about our off season 'Three for Two' package -

The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your water crafts of up to 26 feet. Also included is a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.

From the lake, you can cruise the famous and historic inland waterway. It starts on Crooked Lake, goes to Burt Lake to Mullett Lake, then out to Lake Huron! There are two marinas located within 2 miles for your watercraft rental needs.

Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 20 minutes from your Petoskey Waterfront Rental.

Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your chalet. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation.

Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 25 minutes from your Petoskey Michigan Lakefront Beach Chalet Vacation Rental.

About Jim Suzak

Hi,

We are a family that love and cherish the experiences we get everytime we visit our Lakefront Chalet just outside of Petoskey. We have watched our kids play, learn and grow and have been cherishing those memories that we have been experiencing for the past 16 years or so at our Beachfront Chalet. We would like to share our unit so you too can experience your own lifelong memories.

Jim Suzak purchased this chalet in 1996

This is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I was planning a family gateway up north, and the biggest decision to make was where to stay. I wanted to go to different places, including Mackinac, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Travel City... so the location was very important to us.

Once I saw the add for this Chalet I initially thought: "This is too good to be true". (Actually it turned out to be even better than expected). The first thing I did was to contact Jim; he was extremely nice, very reasonable, helpful, enthusiastic, and efficient. It was a pleasure to make business with him.

Once I got to the Chalet, it was exactly what I expected... actually it looks even better than the pics. It is gorgeous! Just by the lake with a private beach. The Chalet is equipped with everything you need. Four bedrooms with ceiling fans and an amazing balcony in the second floor, two bathrooms with enough supplies, very nice fireplace in the living room, brand new plasma, big kitchen with everything you need. But the best part is the view! Gorgeous view... to seat by the lake, bonfire, some grill, and relax. Everything the add says is there. The property is in perfect conditions. Jim makes sure that you feel at home, and actually provides you with a Binder with all the activities, dinning, Marinas of the area. I felt I was in a Resort. We were there late May and actually were able to swim in the lake. I am from Dominican Republic and you would imagine that I am used to great beaches with white sand. But this was actually very nice. The Crooked Lake had very clean water, sand up to ~1 mile, calm.... it was perfect.

The location was one of the best things. It was really central. Just took us 25mins to get to Mackinaw City, 10mins from Petoskey downtown, 15mins from Charlevoix, about an hour from the Dunes (Traverse City). It made our lives easier. We spend all mornings traveling and knowing these amazing places, and in the afternoons enjoying the Chalet.

I am a physician working at the Detroit Medical Center, and I can guarantee that you will not regret renting this property. Jim is amazing and he will make sure that you have everything you need.

Exactly as presented in the description.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it; we were on the beach of an inland lake, with everything needed for a relaxing vacation. Bedrooms & baths were more than adequate, with plenty of extra towels. Our adult children and families were very comfortable playing volleyball and "horse", football in the lake and just hanging out on the beach. We had kayaks and paddle boards delivered; two of our kids road their bikes, on the nearby paved path, into town to play tennis. Petoskey, with grocery stores and restaurants, was just a short drive away, through, we grilled out most nights. Perfectly restful!

Fantastic winter sunset over the frozen lake!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a great place to hang out with some friends for a weekend ski trip. All the amenities were up to date and clean. I'm convinced my group of friends won't think twice about renting this great little cabin again!

Wonderful winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as advertised: spacious enough to easily handle six adults and yet cozy enough to make this a perfect place to build a fire and enjoy our evenings together. The view of the frozen lake only a few yards outside our window was beautiful. The cottage is very close to the Harbor Springs/Petoskey ski areas, which made our daily trips back and forth easier. We would definitely go back again.
