About Nicole Sauvola-LaMay

Originally from Clio, Michigan, Nicole purchased this property because she loves the things Michigan has to offer -- beautiful scenery, fresh air and amazing down-to-earth people!!!

Nicole Sauvola-LaMay purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Nicole Sauvola-LaMay chose Bellaire / Shanty Creek

The location is one of the most friendly and family-friendly locations for all year round sports -- the Chief Golf Course and its sister course, Hawks Eye are two of the most beautiful and challenging courses anywhere in the country!! A place I wanted to come several times a year to relax and enjoy!

What makes this cottage unique

The King-sized bed in the Upper Unit Master Bedroom is one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in -- I copied the Hilton style of matteress, down mattress cover, and ultra soft sheets....you will return again and again!!

Very nice experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved the family time that we had at the Chief cottages. Nicole's place is beautiful, comfortable and is stocked with everything that is needed to enjoy a peaceful getaway. The location was great and central to the plans that we had with friends in the area. We rented both condos and had room for our whole family. We especially enjoyed the deck and having coffee outside while watching the golfers. We tried out several local restaurants and shops. We boated on Torch Lake and enjoyed lots of sun and fun in northern Michigan. I would rent again from Nicole.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The location was private and only a few minutes to the ski lifts. The home was warm and housed all 14 nicely, it was especially nice being able to keep all the kids in the lower unit and allow the adults some time upstairs alone. Very clean, with super easy access to get in and out! Will be booking again for next year's ski weekend!

Great condo ON the golf course!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was clean as you would expect but you couldn't ask for a nicer view. Right on the 5th hole of The Chief golf course looking directly at the green. We rented both up and down and had 4 bedrooms for the 7 men who stayed there. It worked out so perfectly for us we will definitely stay again! While we didn't use the kitchen (think 7 men) it had all the equipment had we known how to use it... It is close to golf, skiing, Lakes Bellaire or Torch, the town of Bellaire, Short's Brewery and everything Shanty Creek has to offer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

Heaven in the Hills of Northern Michigan

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to have secured an extended weekend stay over the Labor Day weekend at this beautiful home. The cottage was settled into a quiet area in the hills on the edge of Bellaire, MI. The residence was very clean, well organized and beautifully decorated. The rustic decor was inviting and cozy, and prepped us for an amazing weekend of nature walks and scenic views.

Thank you for an amazing stay!
