About Jane and Ben Phillips

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

Why Jane and Ben Phillips chose Western Michigan

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 (Lake County) 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.

What makes this house unique

The three season room, beautiful deck and hot tub over looking the fire pit area, open concept home, a huge sleeping loft, 60 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.

Great couples get away

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Very clean and well kept. We saw a mama deer and her two babies pass through one morning. Very peaceful. Will stay here again.

Great for a relaxing weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Chardonnay Chalet! Jane and Ben were great with commumication, and even promptly refunded some of our payment because we had less guests staying than originally anticipated. The cabin was so beautiful, and had plenty of room for all seven of us. We really enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit, and the beach was fantastic. The only downside was that the neighbor came over twice to check on us while we were in the back yard, making us feel as if they were keeping tabs on us. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely rent again!

Very good!

  • 4 of 5

High quality building, hot tub, loved the three-seasons room, and the close proximity to a variety of activities such as the Lake Michigan beach, river rentals, and ATV rentals.

We have provided a fully stocked property in a beautiful wooded area located in the heart of Michigan and it's best outdoor activities. Camping without tent stakes. Hot showers, washer and dryer, dishwasher, fire pit, satellite TV, 60" flat screen, 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.
