This is a great house, in a good location. Plenty of things to do and very private. Me and a couple of guys stayed here on a work trip and had no issues at all. The house is very well priced and the owners take great pride in keeping the property in good shape. Would def stay here again.
Amazing trip! Booked in the winter and had a great snowfall right before our trip so the lake and everywhere around were gorgeous. House is clean and INCREDIBLY stocked for a rental home. Very thorough and prompt communication with the owners. Would book again!!
I would like to thank the owners for allowing us to stay
The grandkids got to see snow for the first time and they had an awesome time playing in it. We did not have any problems the place had plenty of space for ten of us. Also, the owners were quick to respond and were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to others.
My husband, myself and our 2 pups stayed at this home for 2 1/2 months (from Oct - Dec) and thoroughly enjoyed it! The property is gorgeous, peaceful and full of wildlife. There is always something or someone to watch off the deck or you can just enjoy the wonderful sunsets. It was fun to see it change from summer to fall to winter. We didn't use the actual lake or those amenities but loved staring at it each and every day. The home is cozy and the different levels made working remotely and privately from here convenient for us. The beds were also fabulous!! We had a couple of small things that needed repaired during our stay and Jenna and Marshall took care of them with lightening speed.
The chalet is tucked back in a cove and has wonderful privacy but as soon as you leave the driveway you are back to conveniences. We grew up in Michigan but we were unfamiliar with this part of the state. From the smaller towns to the city conveniences, it is quite a treasure. We hike everyday with our pups and were pleasantly surprised with so many wonderful parks right around the corner to take advantage of! If you love being outdoors this property and location is for you!
