About Connie Kolat

My family loves to spend time up north year around. There is something to do in every season. Skiing, golfing, hiking, biking, canoeing, boating, kayaking and our fall colors are spectacular.

I pride myself on having very clean cozy condos.

Facebook page:

Connie Kolat purchased this condo in 2014

Why Connie Kolat chose Northern Michigan

We chose this condo because it is off of the main road in a quiet end unit yet close to the slopes and action of the resort. The cross country ski trail is literally out the back door. You will be a short walk to the slopes, the club house, pool, hot tub and Ivan's restaurant.

What makes this condo unique

We have tried to stock this condo with as many items as we could think of to make your stay as comfortable as home. You will have TV with DVR and high speed wireless WiFi internet. A Kuerig coffee brewer, regular coffee pot, dishes, pots, pans and kitchen utensils. All linens, soaps and paper products included. Our unit is well maintained and very clean. Professionally cleaned between each guest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Connie,We thoroughly enjoyed your condo, from the nice snacks on the table to the wonderful TV's in the living room and bedroom. The spacious bathroom was wonderful and we enjoyed many of the amenities you had to offer. We went swimming enjoying the views the ski slopes and even ventured to Petosky and Traverse City. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay at such a nice place, we would recommend your condo to anyone. Thanks again, maybe we'll stay again soon..Dean

Relaxing getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time using your condo. We grilled out while there. The bed and furniture are comfortable. The firepit was a plus. We walked to the Cedar River and the driving range. The location is perfect for going to Petoskey or Traverse City. We will definitely stay again this summer.

Super nice getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We experienced a delightful stay at the Levilla Condo. There was just two of us, so the size was perfect. The facility was clean, very well maintained, and centrally located to our needs. As the visit was in late May, neither the heat or the air conditioning was required. Due to the time of year, (pre Memorial Day) we found very few, if any, of the resorts amenities open. Which was fine as we weren't around to use them anyway. The golf course was open, but we're not golfers. The grounds were beautiful, and very well kept. The location is accessible to Charlevioux , Traverse City/Old Mission, and Torch Lake. A couple of eateries each in Mancelona and Bellaire. The Iron Skillet and Pizza Shoppe in Mancelona, and Shorts Brewery and Toonies (Wednesday rib night for superb ribs). For music lovers, the Music House Museum on highway 31 just north of the 72/31 intersection at Acme is a must see.

We most certainly would recommend the condo to any couple looking for a clean and very reasonably priced getaway.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband has taught skiing on the weekends for over 40 years in the Grand Rapids area and decided that he wanted to try teaching at Schuss every other weekend for the 2015-16 season. When we made the choice at the end of last season, we both knew we did not want to stay in a hotel each time we made the 3 1/2 hour drive from home so I looked online for a place to rent that was affordable and close to the slopes.

I found the listing for both of Connie's condos and emailed her what we wanted to do. She got back to me with-in half an hour and, after speaking with her, we hoped we had found what we were looking for.

We made the trip up in October to stay over and check out the condo and knew from the moment we walked in that it was perfect for our needs.

We stayed in both condos throughout the ski season and each stay was perfect.

The condos are both extremely clean, comfortable and have all of the amenities. Kuerig, microwave, fridge, large TVs etc. She truly has thought of every "comfort from home" and I never once felt like a renter, more like a guest in her home.

You can park your car and never drive it again until you leave. The slopes are within walking distance, the free shuttle bus will take you to the other areas of the resort and downtown Bellaire (just remember to tip them!) Definitely visit Shorts Brewery, the Bellaire Bar and the Shanty (up at the Summit) for good food and and a fun time.

You also get a pass for the pool and hot tub at Schuss Village with a Preferred parking pass if you do not want to walk over to the lifts.

The area has it all and you can rent downhill or cross country skiis, snow shoes and boards. Golf on multiple courses in the summer and close to several nature preserves for hiking and lakes and rivers for paddle sports.

Connie asked me after that first visit if there was anthing I could think of that she was missing. I mentioned possibly getting boot trays and 2 days later she emailed that she had picked them up and they would be there for the season.

She truly cares about her properties and her guests and I can not say enough good things about the entire experience.

I have recommended the condos to several friends abnd we will definitely be back to stay again next year.

Thank you Connie for an awesome, hassle free experience!

Great Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is wonderful. It was plenty big enough for me and my husband. Large bedroom and bath. The living room had a nice set of windows looking into the snow covered woods. Connie did a great job making sure everything was set for our stay. There was a nice welcome basket with snacks. A little bit of a hike to the lifts but still convenient enough. A little hard to find in the dark...just make sure you turn before the sign that says the "yellow lift." The condo was way better than any of the accommodations at Shanty Creek.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We try our best time make our condos comfortable. We do provide very specific directions with a picture because our condos are tucked away off of the main road and traffic which makes it very quiet and still only about a 5 minute walk to the slopes.
