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 Iron River

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. :)

Awesome Place to stay for skiing!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year we have stayed at the NordicHaus. We have been taking our kids and grandkids for an annual ski trip to Ski Brule as a Christmas gift since 2013. Last year we stayed here and were able to book it again this year and just had an awesome time. Its large enough for all of us to stay in the same home. We usually have 13-15 people. Its great to come back and sit in the hot tub after a day of skiing. Lori the care taker was great. When we called she responded quickly. I would definitely recommend this home!! Thank You Brian and Alison for the use of your home!!

We had a wonderful time, as always!

  • 4 of 5

The chalet was wonderful as usual. Everything was ready for us. The downstairs fireplace wouldn’t turn on; that was only glitch. Everything else was great! It feels like home to us after so many years of visiting the chalet.

Comfortable rustic remote getaway

  • 5 of 5

Went snowmobiling with a big group (11) for 2 days and skiing on the 3rd day. Nordic Haus was set up perfectly for both. Definitely will come back when we have the chance!

Second stay here went without a hitch. Will be back next year too!

  • 5 of 5

This is my second visit to Nordic Haus. Obviously, I liked it enough the first time to come back. The house is spacious, well maintained and sleeps A LOT of people in very comfortable beds. There are two well supplied kitchens to help with keeping a group fed, two living rooms, two bathrooms - all which make for easy living. There is a hot tub (fantastic) and a dry sauna (not tested) in the home which make your stay even more pleasant. The owners are helpful and easy to contact should the need arise. I would recommend Nordic Haus.
