Fife Lake chalet description
A large manicured lawn with beautiful gardens surround this chalet retreat. Tall plank cedar ceilings and large windows reflect the water and sunlight of the day.

Located on 160 private acres, it has a private gated drive to the home, and sits on a private natural spring lake, with only two other homes on it. Enjoy your own small dock, kayak, row boat for fishing, paddleboat and swimming raft! Terrific pan fishing, swimming, ice skating, hiking and more.

The main level bedroom has a queen size bed and full bathroom also located on the main floor (all linens are provided for your convenience), as well as washer and dryer. The living room is openly layed out with high ceilings, a large fieldstone fireplace and amazing views. There is a nice size sun room off of the living room that houses a futon for sleeping as well. This spacious chalet has a loft with 2 full beds, a large full bathroom, and fabulous views of the lake from the large lakeside windows.
This retreat sits on 160 acres of private land with plenty of wild life (so be careful driving). The property sits on a private 25 acre lake called Downs Lake. This is a natural spring lake that is as pure as they come! Great swimming off the swim raft, and fabulous fishing with fishing boat, or use the kayak included with this rental. No motor boats are allowed.
Other exterior features include a large fire pit for sitting around the fire in the evenings making smores. Extensive decking on the house provides a perfect place for entertaining, along with a gas grill.

This Chalet Retreat was everything we were looking for, plus more. If you enjoy northern Michigan this is the perfect place to stay. Secluded but not rustic by any means. We were able to snowmobile right from the chalet. Not having to trailer to a drop site is so convenient. The homeowners were great to work with - My husband is already planning a return visit for next winter! Thanks again, Carole - we had a wonderful time.

Not a Happy Experience.
Not a Happy Experience.
Very Inconsiderate - Owners did not have to path to the cabin shoveled (12 inches plus) snow to get to the cabin -My husband did that after driving 13 hours. . . Nor did the road to the cabin get snow plowed everyday as they stated it would, which lead to us getting stuck a couple of times. . . . Very small hot water tank which ran out of hot water daily; Toilets would not flush unless the plunger was used, washing machine is rusted - unusable (well I wasn't putting my cloth in it) and the sheets on the downstairs bed were not clean when we arrived. Cabin and view are beautiful but would not recommend renting due to the poor up keep and owner indifference.

Owner response: Dear Mendy and Trevor: I just received your comments on our property. I am so sorry your experience was so challenging and feel bad that we were not able to fulfill your expectations. The winter in Michigan this year, although the snow is beautiful, has been difficult to keep up on. Thank you for your input. I appreciate your time to help us create a better experience for our guests. Sincerely, Carole
