NORTHERN ENCLOSURE LODGE is a four season chalet located only five minutes from Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob ski areas and the quaint villages of Harbor Springs and Petoskey.
Northern Michigan, much admired for its superb skiing, is also known as a fabulous summer destination. Our home is within minutes of the beautiful sandy beach and dunes of Petoskey State Park on Lake Michigan.
We are close to many inland lakes and canals, ideal for swimming and boating; slow meandering streams, perfect for canoeing; and 20 championship golf courses. Many of our guests visit the famous tourist destination of Mackinac Island, located in the nearby Straits of Mackinac.
The chalet is a cozy, three level, rustic lodge. It features a loft with two bedrooms, a first floor master bedroom, and a walk-out lower level with another bedroom. There are two bathrooms, utility area, and a large rec/media room that will accommodate your entire party.

About Bill and Chris Nixon
We are a family of die-hard Northern Michigan lovers that discovered this wonderful area as Honeymooners in 1969 and have returned every summer and winter since. We finally were able to purchase our own retreat and keep finding new places and experiences as well as frequenting old favorites!
Bill and Chris Nixon purchased this Chalet in 1991
Why Bill and Chris Nixon chose Pleasantview
We were drawn to this house because of it's great location , the skiing and summer activities, the relaxed atmosphere, and yes, I confess, I love knotty pine! After many upgrades over the years , I feel that we have established an atmosphere that not only we enjoy but others will as well when they visit.
What makes this Chalet unique
Make your own memories in this wonderful area from our comfortable and cozy lodge. Children love the loft and judging from our now 3 or 4 guest memory books, all seem to enjoy their stays. Guests provide their own bed sheets/pillow cases and towels which helps to keep our rates low and maintains each guest's own standard of quality as well. Blankets and pillows provided.

Great location and excellent vintage chalet
We stayed at Northern Exposure in early January for ski trip. Two of Michigan's best hills are within minutes (seriously less than five minutes drive either way) of the cabin. We skied both Boyne Highlands and Nub's Nob and enjoyed them both. The cabin had comfortable beds, a nice fireplace and a well stocked kitchen. Even though we were there during an extreme cold snap, the cabin was warm and comfortable. It was also roomier than expected with a nice basement family room. Bill and Chris are great to work with and easy to book with. We hope to return.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay! The snow levels are shaping up to be one of the best of our 27 years there ! The atmosphere and fun of a traditional ski lodge is one that we and many of our guests have enjoyed through the years, salted with selected upgrades to enhance our guests' experience. We hope that you can return!

Thank you! We hope that you and your family can return!
Comfortable and Roomy in a Great Location
Our party of nine fit nicely in this cottage. We enjoyed the fireplace, and the proximity to the slopes. We would definitely stay here again!
Cozy and Convenient!
We stayed at Northern Enclosure Lodge with our friends and family while on a skiing vacation and really enjoyed it. There was plenty of room for everyone and we loved sitting near the fireplace after each day of skiing. The kitchen is compact, but had everything we needed fro make breakfasts and crockpot dinners. The location is wonderful being so close to Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands. The owners are super nice too. Very thoughtful and caring. We’ll definitely stay again!
Thank you very much, you and your party set the bar for a tidy house at your departure! Appreciate that and we hope that you can return again!

Northern Enclosure Lodge
Very relaxing, clean, and well stocked
Myself, my 4 adult kids, and my parents stayed here. It was perfect! Had enough space for everyone. I had the lower level BR and the bed was very comfortable, my parents had the bedroom on the main floor, the 3 girls had one side of the loft and my son had the other side. Even though there was no air conditioning the ceiling fan with the front and back door open allowed from a great breeze. Chris and Bill were great to work with, the wifi was not working when we first arrived, they had someone out to the house by 9am and it got fixed right away...it was on the side of the internet company which had to be reset by them. The kitchen was so well stocked, there was nothing that we needed. Had caphelon pots and pans, plenty of cups, mugs, dishes and silver where. Cooked several meals including breakfast and dinner. The only suggestion that I would make, is there were no blinds to cover the big sliding door at night which faced the road. Would recommend this place and would stay again if we go to that area.

Thanks Debbie! After 27 years of business, we believe that attending to details and service are what our guests expect! We certainly hope that you and your family will return!
A great place to relax and get away
We had about 10 people and never felt cramped in. It was an affordable place that made you feel like at home. It was clean and neat and warm. The furniture was nice and the beds were comfortable. I really like it when I found out the water pressure in the shower was strong. We had cable to watch NHL playoffs and it was on HD TV's. The location was great as it was close to a store, a restaurant and ski hills. We will definitely try to make it back.
