Overview

Northern Michigan Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Close to the Famous Torch Lake Sandbar & with a dock for your boat or rent ours!

It's the prettiest and most peaceful vacation rental in our area. Many 5 star reviews best describe this log chalet rental during all 4 seasons! Nestled in the hills near the south end of the beautiful clean waters of Torch Lake we offer privacy, comfort, and great memories!!

Our Number # Attraction is the World's Third Most Beautiful Lake, TORCH LAKE and our Famous Sandbar!! Our Beautiful acreage with Sunset views from our fresh and clean Hot Tub is very affordable compared to the shoreline rent of Torch Lake.

We are a day's outing to the most popular Sleeping Bear Dunes, or the Big Mac Bridge and Mackinac Island. Traverse City and the Turtle Creek Casino is 10-20 minutes away.

How long has it been since you counted the constellations on a clear, bright starry night? Or listened to the howls of coyotes or seen a family of wild turkey strolling by?

Isn't it time you and your loved ones escape out of the city lights and come up to our northern lights for an extended weekend or even for a week long break.

Our log chalet is cozy enough for honeymooners or couple retreats, (we have many) yet large enough for family and friends!

All year long, the Torch Lake/ Traverse City area is buzzing with events, festivals, concerts, restaurants, wineries,and shopping!

Our detailed cabin is furnished with all the necessities inside including quality cookware, linens and towels! You will never run out of hot water for showers because we have an on demand hot water heater. We clean the hot tub and its filters between each renter and fill it will hot water before you arrive. We also include fire wood to roast those marshmellows while watching the panoramic sunsets from our cedar swing!

You can rent our pontoon for the day for fishing, playing, or relaxing on the famous Torch Lake sandbar by taking advantage of our multiple day pontoon discounts or dock your own boat at a rented dock space just for our guests!

On our property, there are many walking trails and places to sit to take in the views or engage in conversation with your friends. We have even provided a space just for sun bathing or book reading.

We hope you will consider coming to our secluded chalet with a view. We have many return visitors...check out our reviews! Come to Torch Lake, stay and play! Thanks for reading. God Bless!

Thanks for letting us stay in your charming chalet! We had such a great time hiking seven bridges and sleeping bear dunes. We enjoyed visiting the nearby lakes- though still frozen. Sunset with hot tubs are always nice too! We hope to be back soon!!

Tidy log cabin, amazing views, hot tub & comfy beds!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 had a very good experience renting the chalet in February for a ski trip to Shanty Creek/ Schuss Mountain. The chalet is conveniently located a short drive to Bellaire, Traverse, and many other great MI destinations.

The home is very well cared for with attentive owners. Beds and bedding are some of the nicest we've experienced with a vacation rental and the hot tub is a major bonus! Our only limitation (and recommended improvement) was the dining table (seating for 4) that didn't accommodate our whole family.

This affordable, tidy and well decorated vacation home has a lot to offer for year- round fun and relaxation!

Thankful

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving in this perfectly equipped Chalet. The only thing that could have made anything better was beyond anyone's control, and that was the weather!!! Our intentions were to spend most of the time in the GREAT hot tub, but we only were able to enjoy it one time due to rain & light snow. We ventured the grounds very briefly (due to the same reasons...), and just kept imagining our next visit, with more friends & even our kids!!! This place is a definite treasure!!! Thank you Dale & Mike!!!!!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the property with our grown kids. We used the pontoon to explore and fish the lakes. We couldn't have asked for better hosts, Dale and Mike were great, always available to help in any way. The guys loved the loft area, which they used as their "mancave". Everything was clean and as promised.

We will be back!

Lovely little spot with fantastic views...

  • 4 of 5

Everything was as expected during our stay. Mike and Dale were extremely kind and made our stay easy, comfortable, and enjoyable. The property around the house is a joy to explore. The horses in the pasture were a nice touch of county livin'. I would highly recommend staying at this wonderful little chalet.

Great Getaway!!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I booked the cabin for my birthday/Valentines Day. We loved the cabin, it was very cozy inside with the fireplace as the temps dropped outside to -24 with 30mph winds. We spent most of the time in and out of the hot tub as it was way too cold to ride our snowmobiles that weekend, I tried a 2 min ride and it was unbearable but the hot tub was nice and toasty! The cabin has everything you need and is set upon a beautiful overlook making the scene in the winter a true wonderland. We did have some struggles making pancakes in the morning, there is in fact a well equipped full kitchen but they need a griddle:) The local area taverns are close as is a family dollar (griddle shopping) and a fully stocked grocery store is just down the road a bit. We ate dinner on Friday at the Alden Bar and was not impressed at all, the second night we stopped into the local tavern Kritters and the food was super and the décor wild! Take the trip up to Rapid City, very quiet and cozy getaway for 2.
