About Michael and Kimberly Mack
I grew up in Metro Detroit, and enjoyed spending the weekends in beautiful Northern Michigan with my family. Although we like spending time on the golf course, or out on the lake, our passion will always be skiing.
Michael and Kimberly Mack purchased this Chalet in 1998
Why Michael and Kimberly Mack chose Harbor Springs
This home provided us with a home away from home, on weekends and holidays, as our son pursued his skiing career, and our other children enjoyed snowboarding.
What makes this Chalet unique
The uniqueness of the area quickly drew us to live full time in Northern Michigan while our children were still of school age. The area is full of wonderful amenities, and charm, and this home is in the center of them all!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Springtime at the slopes
We stayed at this property May 30th through June 2nd.
It was very quiet & we enjoyed sitting on the deck in the mornings. We also LOVED the sauna! It was just cool enough outside to enjoy that feature in the evenings.
Kim was easy to get hold of with all our questions & even gave awesome advice on good resteraunts & petoskey stone picking areas & places of interest that aren't well know to 'tourists'!
FYI- Little flies of sorts were quite plentiful by the lake this time of year...they didn't bite just kind of flew in your face a bit...but when you are bent down looking for stones they really weren't an issue!
Disappointed but great location for skiing at Nubs Nob.
First although advertised pets allowed, 4 days prior to arrival received rules that stated 'Absolutely No Pets'! Our dogs are well trained working SAR dogs and Therapy dog. It was obvious that other dogs had been on the site as I cleaned up after many others on the property. Next very difficult to get into the house. Second lacked linen including bedding and towels for 8 people. The bunk beds were extremely uncomfortable, ended up on the coach and recliner for 3 nights. WiFi was questionable most of the time. Many cigarette buds next to the doors and we do not smoke. Disappointed in the accommodations but loved the location!
As a host I'm very disappointed to see a review like this, especially after I gave an all over 5 star review to this guest!!!
During this guests stay there were many phone conversations, as we make ourselves always available to our guests for anything!!
First, we had accommodated pets in the past but have had issues of urine, and destruction. We love furry family members, but because of the issues, and people with allergies we had to change our policy. The change was recent, and the guest had said she received the rules and regs in the email on 3/25 and everything "looks good". We had previously discussed the pet issue of Therapy dogs and I oked them to stay. She stated they are always with them, and never alone.
As for POOP, yes I'm sure there was some from previous dogs, and neighborhood dogs as well. As snow melts it just appears.
We have a very simple push button entry, but the guest had a party member arrive beforehand and couldn't seem to open the door. Even trying to walk them through while on the phone seemed difficult.
1. Push blue button
2. enter 4 number code
3. turn the knob.
We received another phone call about linens stating not enough, so we gave them the code to our locked closet which our cleaning crew has for supplies.
Bunk beds are never too comfortable, never have box springs, don't know what else to say. :/
Another phone conversation was about the wifi not working....the plug had been bumped, and needed to reset.
We DO allow people who smoke, BUT NOT in our home. It is rare that we see any ciggerets on the ground.
We have shared our home with hundreds of guests, since 2015, and I am sorry and sad to read this review. We have always tried to make our guests comfortable by making ourselves available, always!!!!!
We are a Premier Partner with a 4.5 out of 5 rating. I don't feel 2 stars is fair.
Great place to stay!
Great little spot to stay and ski!
Great guest! During their stay she said yes! it was wonderful for him to share a proposal photo with us.
Hope to have you back in the future. Congratulations!
Great location - could be much better with a little TLC with kitchen/bathroom supplies.
Great location! The place hosts 6 comfortably - technically sleeps 8. A couple recommendations to keep up with other local rentals is to restock the kitchen to include all standard cooking items that are newer, leave some space for renters to put their food.belongings and provide towels, washcloths, hand towels and kitchen towels for all. Owner was easy to work with and responsive when wifi went out.
Thanks for the review. We try to keep items stocked, but bath towels seem to disappear! We always welcome ideas, and suggestions.
Thanks for staying with us, hope you will visit again.
adorable and comfortable house in great location
This house is located just 10-15 minutes walking or 2 minutes drive to Nubs Nob ski resort and just 10 minutes drive to beautiful Harbor Springs downtown area. The house is very comfortable with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with a jacuzzi tub and sauna), and sleeping for up to 8 persons. My family really enjoyed the warm and pretty atmosphere of this home! We would definitely return!!
Thanks for your great review! We would love to have you return for another visit, and if you do we offer a discount to returning guests who love our home!!
A wonderful home super close to Nubs Nob
We had a great time staying here with our group. The home was clean, had all of the needed amenities, fast internet, and was really close to Nubs for some excellent January skiing. We will be back again for sure!
Great Guests! It is always nice to hear a guest would like to return for another visit. Thank you!! We always try to achieve the best experience, and that includes great communication between both parties, a clean and inviting home, ideas to our guests about the area, and a locker at Nubs for easy in and out during the stay. Thank you for being respectful of our home, and hope to see you again. Summer is beautiful here!!
