We have been looking for a property that we felt had all the requirements for our vacation home. It is our goal to make this your favorite vacation spot. We are Michigan residents living in Zeeland. The short drive for us allows us a great vacation spot for a quick get-a-way, less then 2 hours.
Jane and Ben Phillips purchased this house in 2015
We fell in love with the view, nature at its best, especially from the three season room. Our family likes to four wheel and snow mobile on the hundreds of miles Baldwin has to offer. We also enjoy the golf coarse right around the corner. We are close enough to home but far enough away to feel like a vacation. The home offers all the amenities you get at home without the stress.
The three season room, beautiful deck and hot tub over looking the fire pit area, open concept home, a huge sleeping loft, 55 inch high definition TV with satellite, and internet. It's just a great location! State of the art water filtration system by Culligan for pure clean, soft water without rust.
My husband and I stayed with another couple October 2016 and had a wonderful stay. The cabin was clean, beautiful, secluded with lots of amenities. We enjoyed the hot tub, fire pit and great kitchen for entertaining. Would definitely return.
My husband, son and and I really enjoyed our time at the Chardonnay Chalet. It was very clean, well organized and perfect for the three of us. When we had a few questions, we sent the owners an email and they responded within a few hours. We'll definitely consider returning in the future.
This was our second time at the cottage! We loved being there. The house is beautiful and the sun room was perfect for breakfast! The hot tub was an extra treat with the great view of the woods! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need! The washer and dryer are great to have! The owners left us a nice treat for s'mores by the camp fire, our kids loved it! We will be back next year!
The house was perfect. It was supplied with a bunch of unexpected supplies and everything looked brand new. I would definitely recommend this place to all of my friends.
Stayed for a wedding at big star lake and it was only 2 miles away! The owners were very communicative and place was clean! Bonus is they provide everything you don't have to bring your own towels, sheets, pillows, etc! Also enjoyed the brand new hot tub! Book here for a cute place near the lake! One suggestion is to get very clear directions most of my friends got lost trying to find the place. Only spot with wifi is ice cream store near by!
Had a great time. Just what we were expecting and needed for a fishing trip. Located only a few miles from 37 south of Baldwin was a convenient location for fishing the Pere Marquette. Thanks Jane and Ben.
The Chardonnay Chalet is a newer property designed for the vacation renter.

Hot showers, washer and dryer, pizza oven, fire pit, satellite TV, toaster, micro wave oven, central air-conditioning, DVD, internet and even a pellet stove for cold wintery days, also a screened in room , just to name a few. We have made sure every need is met on this property. The unit sleeps 10 with 3 queen beds along with 4 twin beds.
Wildlife is always in view if you pay attention, deer, fox, coyotes, squirrels, chipmunks roam the banks of the pond, and even red headed wood peckers, or even an eagle may fly over.
ORV groomed trails are in the hundreds of miles for snowmobiling and ATV riding. Fishing for salmon, trout and steelhead are world class. The Big Manistee is world renowned for fly fishing (10 minute drive), and Pere Marquette and Pine Rivers also offer great opportunities to catch a wall hanger. Local lakes also offer pan fishing for the kids.
We are sure this property offers the best vacation value you can find.
