About the property

Studio / Hotel Room

This is a fantastic little get away spot. 1 Double bed with a twin on top plus a sofa bed. We are equipped with a small table and 2 chairs. Perfect for a quick breakfast or computer work (yes, we have high speed wireless). There is a full bathroom plus a small refrigerator, coffee maker, and microwave for your mini meals and snacks.

This is a peaceful summer location and a no car needed in the winter. The slopes are less than 500' from the front door. This is a perfect location to come off the hills for a potty break or nap.

There is an adjoining 2 bedroom condo available as well. Reserve homeaway #3651219 with this studio to make a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Bergrand 525 was exactly what the pictures show on Homeaway. A hotel style Condo/Room that will sleep 4-5 people. We had 4 adults. A little tight at times but for the most part you are only in the room to relax or sleep. We spent most of our time on the slopes or out by the resort campfire. The really nice part about this room is it is very close to the Yellow lift and Ivan's restaurant. You can ski right down to the parking lot by the room. We came to the room to warm up and have lunch during the day. The room was neat and clean. We had a great time at Schuss and I would recommend this room to others.

Nice hotel room/living room. A bit small and compact, but really not a problem. Has microwave, coffee maker and refrigerator so bring your own food. No utensils provided beyond coffee cups. Furniture and decor are up to date and beds are very comfortable. Step out the front door and the hills are right there. Walk 250 yards to the main lodge and beautiful indoor pool/hot tub/sauna. Close to everything you could need in Bellaire (don't miss Shorts Brewery!)

Great location, just steps from everything you'll need for a weekend of fun!

  • 5 of 5

Nice space, lots of beds and fold out sofa's for sleeping. Literally just a few steps from the yellow chair lift and a minutes walk over to Ivan's for food / drinks / entertainment.

Basic, but can't beat the location!

  • 4 of 5

The location of this condo is perfect for the weekend ski trip. Short walk to the yellow and blue lifts on the Schuss side.

Accommodations are pretty basic when just renting the studio (twin bed, kids only loft/bunk and a pull out sofa). A little smaller than we imagined, but suitable for a shorter stay.

Some frustrations during the stay, but hardly the owners fault. WiFi is hit-n-miss (don't count on it or the Roku for your kids viewing pleasure). Blue lift was down due to damage which made the lift lines on an already busy weekend even busier. And our friendly neighbors in the adjoining unit serenading us at 3am on New Years Eve was entertaining.

All that being said, if priced right we would definitely recommend/rent again.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay - it's been a while since any northern Michigan resort had such nice conditions on the holiday week. Just to clarify for other travelers looking for a hotel room to rent: beds are a double with twin over top + 1 sofa sleeper. We notice whenever house counts are at peak capacity the wifi tends to be sluggish (I'm sorry!). A 3 am serenade isn't nice but I'll extend grace to the neighbor since it was New Years Eve - thanks for letting me know.

Manager Integrity!

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as we expected. However, the Roku stick was missing, so we had a very limited amount of channels to watch and no movies. When the Manager and I discovered the last renters must have taken it with them, the Manager immediately made things right by crediting us for this unfortunate event. That's what I call integrity!

The location of this unit couldn't be close to so many of the great Michigan destinations.

Owner's Response: Thanks again Amy for working with me. It's discouraging that someone took the Roku stick, however, I find the majority of guests/renters are like you. Kind, honest, and great to work with. Come back soon!
