For large parties, good for sleeping but not much else
The good: This chalet had plenty of comfortable sleeping space for everyone in our party of nine. It was cozy, had a beautiful view, and was in a great location close to Bellaire in a peaceful woodsy setting.
The not-so-good: Even though this cabin's sleeping arrangements fit ten people comfortably, the rest of it did not. There were only four chairs around the dining room table, no bar stools, and not even a coffee table on which to eat. With only one sofa and one chair in the living room, there was not enough comfortable seating for our party. We were forced to find folding lawn chairs in the basement so that everyone would have a place to sit. The gas fireplace worked fine most of the time we were there, but it took a bit of ingenuity to get it to start when we first arrived and by the evening before we left, we couldn't get it going again. I understand that kitchen and other items often "walk away" from rental units, but someone should really see that the kitchen remains well-stocked with basic items, such as measuring spoons, at least two large-sized pots, more than two wine glasses, mixing bowls, strainer (which we had to purchase), and several more decent knives. Oh, and a hair dryer. And lastly, we were disappointed when we could not watch the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day because the Dish Network in the house didn't have the right channel showing the game. And my team was playing. Bummer!
Finally, we were there to ski and were fortunate to receive about 16 inches of snow during our stay. While the small subdivision road was regularly plowed, the windy and hilly driveway was less-so. So, that made driving up and down the last stretch of driveway tricky even with a 4x4 with snow tires.
I truly hate to write negative reviews, and if you have significantly fewer people in your party, then this chalet is a perfectly fine place to stay. For larger parties, I think most of these issues could be remedied to some degree by adding the right furniture, but it would still be close living quarters.
-Pictures of the rooms and furniture lay out are on the web site
-We have basic functional cooking equipment and utensils nothing fancy
- The house is back in the woods I can't control a record 16" of snow in one day . but snow was plowed every day .
- We have a basic TV dish package can't guarantee I will have guests favorite sports team .
Beautiful spot. Easy owners to work with.
The place was beautiful and the view unsurpassed. It did take some getting used to getting up the steep drive, (and we were there in August), so heed warnings about the need for 4-wheel drive in winter weather. The owners were very responsive. Other commentators have noted that they had no dishwasher, and the home is on well water. But, for our three couples, we managed just fine. The close proximity to horseback riding and to Bellaire (and Shorts!) was certainly a plus.
Great location. Clean and updated.
Booked it for a golf trip with a large group. Didn't disappoint. Good view, nice and secluded. Close to Bellaire, Torch Lake, and multiple nice golf courses. Would love to get back and see it in the winter.
House was nice area beautiful
Well stocked, comfortable accomdations. Enjoyed the firepit and sitting on the porch. For a family using this house having a TV in the master and the other two rooms would have nice. Having WiFi would also have been nice. But overall a nice vacation spot.
Perfect, private weekend getaway with great space for 6 peolple.
Beautiful home located just outside of downtown Bellaire. Convenient location for quick grocery store visits, pizza delivery, and even Fire wood delivery! Was the perfect stay for a quiet weekend!
Picturesque but somewhat out-of-the-way location; comfortable condo in need of a few improvements
We had a nice stay at the condo but found some aspects of it to be frustrating. First, the good: the condo is comfortable and quiet, with very nice shared living space, a gorgeous deck with a great view of trees and a horse barn, and was a relaxing place to return to each evening. However, we were disappointed with the lack of a few basic amenities and conveniences that would have made our stay a lot better. First, there is no dishwasher (and, bafflingly, no drying rack!). With four adults and two toddlers, dishes became a dreaded task each day. The kitchen was also poorly appointed. For example, there was only one, huge bowl, and only four small steak knives (no knife for chopping). Since the condo is a bit out of the way, I would imagine most guests would want to do a good amount of cooking there, so it was strange that the kitchen was missing such basics as a knife. There was also no wifi, which was frustrating since half of us were from out of the country and thus had no access to internet for the entire week. Finally, the house had some odd features. The ground floor bathroom door did not shut properly and would swing open at inopportune times (there was no lock). That same bathroom had a toilet that was not properly installed. The bedroom with bunk beds also had a door that did not shut. These seem like little fixes that should have been taken care of before guests showed up. Location wise, the condo is out of the way. It's a short drive to downtown Bellaire, but a good 20-30 minute drive to any public beaches, which is what we were interested in. The location is nice in that it's quiet and pretty, but it's not super convenient. Although we had a good time, I would not book this property again.
