Space 1,750 sq ft
Property type chalet
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Chalet, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

NOTE: DURING THE SUMMER WE ALMOST ALWAYS RENT SATURDAY TO SATURDAY since our cleaning people typically do not work on Sundays and since traffic heading north can be heavy on Fridays.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE THE INSTANT QUOTES PROVIDED ON THE WEBSITE OR EMAILED TO YOU FROM VRBO MAY NOT BE ACCURATE since our rates vary considerably depending on the time of year, number of people, and our cleaning people's schedule -- which we may not be able to confirm in a short time frame. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR A QUOTE which may be MORE or LESS than the instant quote. SORRY!.

Since we are considering selling the Chalet we have just started taking reservations for the Summer. As a result most weeks are open.

And note that since all of our renters have taken good care of the property CLEANING IS INCLUDED IN OUR RATES..

Why stay at a rental condo or motel when you can have your own delightful Chalet!

Our newer Chalet has a year-round wooded setting that is very close to the Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands ski resorts and the world class shopping, beaches, lakes, golf courses, and restaurants in the famous Petoskey-Harbor Springs area.

SUMMER and FALL are always 'high season' with the famous Harbor Springs/Good Hart/Cross Village area a few miles north and west, and Petoskey/Bay Harbor & Lake Michigan a few miles south, with many beaches, inland lakes, and great golf courses in-between.

WALK TO NUBS NOB. In WINTER the Chalet's location is exceptional since the Nubs Nob parking lot just one long block away. Nubs was named Ski Magazine's #1 Ski facility in the Midwest for the last 3 years.

And if you are not familiar with this wonderful area we have numerous 'insider tips' and recommendations on restaurants and places to see and things to do.

The first floor of our spacious Chalet has a great room with a vaulted ceiling and large windows, a dining area with a table that seats 8, a modern fully equipped kitchen, a full bath with tub, a large entry/laundry area, and two good sized bedrooms each with closets and twin beds. The second floor has a comfortable loft area with stereo/TV/VCR/DVD, cable TV, broadband internet with WiFi, & movies and games;a large Master Bedroom (with a queen sized bed, large closet,vanity & sink,and desk); a fourth bedroom with twin beds and a closet; and a large bath with shower.

The Chalet is beautifully furnished and decorated and has an Up North warm wood interior with many vaulted ceilings and skylights (night snow making can be seen from the master bedroom skylight). The kitchen is fully equipped, the laundry has a full-size washer & dryer, the entry area has ample places for coats and gear, and there is a large front and side deck with a table, chairs and a gas grill.

This is not a typical rental property and is only available certain times throughout the year. PLEASE: No Pets and No Smoking. Families, adult groups and longer term guests are preferred.

Many return year after year and comments from past guests include: “You represented your chalet perfectly on VRBO. It was exactly as I expected and we had a wonderful time.” D.D. “It was a perfect setup for our family and we would love to do it again.” A.L. 'Awesome chalet!' C.C. 'One of our best family vacations ever!' L.B. 'What a wonderful time we had in your beautiful and accommodating chalet' C.W. 'Thank you... We had a wonderful time. It is the perfect family spot.' J.B. 'We are use to being pampered and this chalet is perfect.' J.L.

About Dan

I was born in the area and spent 60+ years as a summer person. Now we spend over half the year Up North.

Since this is the only property we occasionally rent we cannot operate like the larger rental groups that have full time cleaning people, etc. As a result it may take a day or so to confirm our cleaning people's schedule. Sorry.

Why Dan chose Harbor Springs

When our children were younger we all skied at Nubs Nob and the kids could walk back to the Chalet when they were tired or the slopes were crowded. And in the other seasons it has a secluded wooded setting but is still close to everything.

What makes this chalet unique

While fairly new with vaulted ceilings, the wood walls give the Chalet a warm Up North feeling. This is not a typical 'rental' property.

Nub's Nob Ski Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was perfect for our family of 4 and would sleep up to 8 comfortably. It had everything we needed. The owner, Dan, was very helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with. We've been coming up to Harbor Springs for a few years now, but this was the first time that we stayed here. I can't imagine why we would want to stay anywhere else going forward. A little pet peeve of mine that I've developed from previous places we've stayed is a lack of hooks to hang coats, pants, etc...after a day of skiing. It's such a simple thing that seems to be often overlooked. That's not the case here. There are plenty of places to hang all your stuff.

The home is less than a 2 minute drive to Nub's and right across the street from Boyne. It's a short drive into Petoskey and there are several great restaurants to choose from here. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Awesome rental!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect rental for a ski trip to Nubs Nob. The owner was very helpful and always available by phone. Very close to Nubs!! We had 6 people and didn't even use one of the rooms! It was very clean, cozy, and comfortable. Thanks for a great trip, we all were very pleased and plan to rent the chalet again!

It was perfect for our needs

This place is great. We rented it for a weekend golf trip with four guys. Chalet is smartly laid out, well appointed and very clean. We would certainly rent it again. Dan, the owner, was a pleasure to work with. Thanks Again!

Location Location and Todd "Superpipe" Jurgens!

  • 5 of 5

4-5 hundred yards from the base of Nubs, 4 minute drive to Boyne Highlands. Easy kitchen for cooking meals, room to spread out and yet come together in the living room. We had 4 kids and 4 adults and it was plenty big. Very quiet and relaxing and so close to the resorts the kids rode on the back of the tailgate to Nubs. Big thrill to meet Nubs Nob legend Superpipe Jurgens. Owner very easy to work with and you will have a chance to catch up on your Hemingway and Tolstoy. Owner has thought of everything and clearly explains procedures.

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

PLEASE NOTE: our rates vary considerably based on the time of year, length of stay, number of guests, and our cleaning people's schedules. AS A RESULT THE INSTANT QUOTE RATES MAY BE HIGHER AND OFTEN ARE LOWER. Also because our rates include cleaning and towels and linens the weekday and rentals of less than one week are usually higher than the computer generated rate

Smaller groups and families and mature adults preferred.

WE MOST ALWAYS RENT SATURDAY TO SATURDAY DURING THE SUMMER. Since we are considering selling the Chalet we will not take reservations for the later Fall or Winter for some time yet.

A security deposit may be required for new guests, and discounts may be offered for long-term and near term rentals.

This is not a typical rental property. Please email us for a quote. Thanks!
