About Alison & Brian

We're a close-knit family living in the Midwest that really treasures togetherness, making loving memories and healthy, wholesome fun.

Alison & Brian purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Alison & Brian chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

We have a large family and extended family. This property allows multiple families to be close together and really share each other's company. Nobody has to jump in a car or go back to a sterile hotel room in the middle of the evening. Family and friends can hang out as late as they want and retire to their beds a few steps away.

What makes this chalet unique

The surroundings are serene, pure and breathtaking. Ski Brule has one of the earliest starts and latest ends to skiing in the Midwest. And, excellent fishing and hunting are nearby. The town of Iron River can provide golf, restaurants, groceries or antiquing just a few minutes away. This property also boasts a hot tub, sauna, scenic deck and fire pit. It's also great for large groups and multi-family outings. It also has two full kitchens and two bathrooms. Nordic Haus is also just a few 100 yards from one of the county snowmobile trails (#15). So it's ski-in/ski-out, and snowmobile-in/snowmobile-out.

Incredible home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a wedding, we had 5 adults, no children; however, when they say 10+ can comfortably stay here, they aren't joking!

We had people with different dietary needs so the two kitchens were marvelous for preparing different meals! They're full kitchens that mirror each other.

The second floor has a hot tub, of course, which was fast to heat and clean when we arrived.

We didn't need to use the heaters, but I did test them quickly and they worked well.

The hot water in the showers was sufficient for 5 adults to shower consecutively, really nice!

The beds were SO COMFORTABLE! I'm an avid lover of hotel beds because they have a foamy feel that allows me to sleep comfortably, these beds were essentially the same :) I slept soundly every night.

Speaking of soundly, the area is extremely quiet, not a sound can be heard, extremely peaceful.

We didn't ski, it is summer, but we went to the ski area to look, it's only 3 minutes down the road, great location. It's also only 15 minutes to the center of town!

Lastly, great communication from the owners.

We will be staying there again when we visit. :)

Great place to stay for a large group of people. Centrally located for many days of exploring the area. Clean and comfortable. Would recommend as a nice place to stay.

Good location, cute and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Everything was good, and more than ample for our needs. As we were preparing some of the food for a larger family gathering it was nice to have two kitchens to use. In the summer, bring mosquito spray! The "serene woods" which are certainly lovely in the winter, tend to attract those little buggers. Every contact with owners was prompt, satisfactory, and helpful. The only unfortunate thing was that prior tenants' trash was not removed for a few days after our arrival. We appreciated everything about our stay, especially wifi capability since cell phone reception is nearly non existent.

Beautiful chalet just next to Ski Brule

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay with my family at the Nordic Haus. Loved the cozy atmosphere with big comfy couches surrounding a warm fireplace and plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed getting to use the spacious kitchens to cook together. I would highly recommend!

The chalet was great - in comfort and value

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find a place for 20 people to stay together for such great price. This is one of those places! We had a great stay with many comforts in a beautiful setting! The beds were really comfortable! The only bad part was that we went to ski for 3 days and the ski area was closed for two of them due to high winds (not that that has anything to do with the chalet, but that part of our trip was a bummer).
