Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 20)

Situated on a cul de sac in Boyne Mountain Resorts Exclusive Edelweiss Gated Community - for Private Homes only - the magnificent Edelweiss Lodge is completely ski in/ski out for winter vacations and sits at the first tee for both the Alpine and Monument golf course for summer, spring, and fall vacations.

The owners of the Edelweiss Lodge have spared no expense to make this a truly world class property and have installed the following technologically advanced features:

- Dedicated Internet Connection. Unlike the condos at Boyne Mountain Resort, the Edelweiss Lodge has its own dedicated internet connection so it has extremely fast wireless internet speeds despite how many people are at the resort!

- Key Less Entry. The Edelweiss Lodge is equipped with a Nexia Home Intelligence system so you have no worries about lost keys. Rather, you will have a personalized four digit code assigned to your group that provides key-less access to the chalet during the rental - your group can come and go with ultimate convenience.

- Unlimited Movie Rentals. For additional comfort and enjoyment, all seven televisions in the Edelweiss Lodge have Netfilx accounts so you can watch unlimited movies - for free!

- Stereo Throughout the Lodge. There is a Sonos system in the Edelweiss Lodge which unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. You can play whatever music you want in every room over the dedicated wireless network. Use your smartphone, tablet, or computer to stream different songs in each room, group rooms together, or hear the same music everywhere.

- Monitored Climate Control. The Edelweiss Lodge has base board heating on the main level of the home, radiant heated floors on the entire lower level and air conditioning on both levels. These systems are connected to the Nexia Home Intelligence System and monitored by a local HVAC company so dispatch will be notified, and the problem mitigated, before an occupant even knows there was a problem.

About Lexis Hornbeck

We both grew up in Michigan and the husband grew up in Gaylord and has skied Boyne Mountain his entire life. We enjoy renting our Edelweiss Lodge out to people who will treat it like their own and build lifelong memories as we do every time we set foot in it.

Lexis Hornbeck purchased this house in 2014

Why Lexis Hornbeck chose Northern Michigan

You should rent Edelweiss Lodge because it includes complimentary daily housekeeping and the following technology features everyone is sure to enjoy: - Wireless Speaker System Throughout. That’s right, you can connect to the wireless speaker system via your iPhone/iPad and use the Sonos wireless system. - Unlimited Movies via Netflix. Local Wireless Internet. We have a dedicated internet connection in the mountain cabin so no matter how many people are at Boyne, your internet will be very fast.

What makes this house unique

First of all, this is a spacious and elegant place so it gives us great joy to entertain our family and friends. The wooded setting is wonderful and is the wood burning fireplace (the only ones allowed at Boyne) and unlimited firewood. The private decks are great as is the fully finished basement with separate living area if more than one family is sharing this home. Another plus is that the unit has its own washer and dryer which is great for week long get a ways.

Reviewer Comments:

Unforgetabble time, beautiful location. However, they were doing construction on the back patio during our stay that we were not made of aware of until we showed up to the property. This created a lot of dust and it was hard to be outside while they were working.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback Michael. We did leave several messages to alert you of the fact the owner, without our prior knowledge, started a major landscaping project. We also offered a full refund or to move your party in the event the landscaping was an issue but we never heard back from you. We certainly apologize for the confusion but its great to hear you had such a good time at our beautiful property.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

We frequently travel with 8+ adult couples and finding places to accommodate our luxury AND space/privacy needs is often hard to find. The Edelweiss Lodge surpassed all our expectations! There was more than enough beds and bathrooms for all. It was truly impressive. The home was immaculate and the location was wonderful and excluded. I threw my fiance's surprise 30th birthday at the house and it was incredible. We went in November and the weather wasn't great; however, the house provided lots of entertainment for us to stay inside. The guys enjoyed the second living room for football, others used the theater and the women all enjoyed cooking together in the gourmet kitchen! Plus, the Sonos system throughout the house was a huge hit. The housekeeper (Ashley, i think) stopped by each day and was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be returning again in the near future.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

Okay, let's talk about this property. It sits up at the top of the hill, right on the first tee. Don't let that make you think it's not private enough. It's very peaceful and the golf stops in the later afternoon. It's actually fun to sit and watch the golfers tee off. Everyone is so friendly, and most of them enjoy the audience. And you are far enough away that you don't know they are there unless you choose to watch. At night it's like you are in the country. You can sit out around the fire pit and it's as quiet as if you were camping. If you are a big group, it's got a large, open living area, with a dining room table big enough to sit everyone. (Something not every large home has.). The master suite is incredible, truly unique. The home theatre is also first class. When you're here, you feel like your in a high end property. There aren't any cut corners. The furnishings, kitchens, baths, dishes, name it. It's been done right. On the first level, there is another living area and three bedrooms. There's plenty of beds and they are all comfortable. No cots here! Even your youngest kid will get a real bed. We went in the summer and it was a great base from which to explore Lake Charlevoix and Petoskey. I can't imagine how awesome it would be to rent this home in the winter! The lift is not far and you could ski right out of your back door and the lift would return you almost in your backyard. We looked around at other properties while we were there, and for ski in/ski out potential with a family or large group, we didn't see anything that could beat this property.

What a pleasure!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 13 women rented this for a Friday through Sunday stay and we really loved the house! We had plenty of room and really appreciated the large dining room table as we love to play cards games together. Everyone commented on the cleanliness, the decorating was beautiful and made us feel very at home. The kitchen is a masterpiece to cook in and worked out really good with 13 women. This is a great location within easy driving distance to many of the activities that our group wanted to participate in. I as one of the lucky ones and got to stay in the Master bedroom suite. What a dream! Very comfortable and would definitely like to stay again and would recommend to anyone looking for a house you want to feel comfortable in.
