Ontonagon chalet description
Visit our chalet to relax and get away from it all(don't worry we have internet and cable so you don't really have to get away from it all). We are located on 3 acres of wooded property right across the street from Lake Superior. Walk along the beach and watch the sunset. For the kids we have a variety of old fashioned games and there is a fantastic playground(3 blocks away) in the Ontonagon Park which is adjacent to the property. And of course there is the pristine beach and lake for them to play in while you sunbathe.
Your spouse can even camp in the park while you enjoy the comforts of your own home.
In the winter spend the day at the Porcupine Mountains(15mile drive -check out the porkiesfun website) sledding, skiing- downhill and cross country, or snowmobiling(rentals close by) and come back and warm yourself by one of the two fireplaces and enjoy hot cup of something. We have a two person sled that you can use on the hill next to the house. Locals sled over at the golf course where there are two huge hills. One is for the very brave...super steep and fast.
In the summer/fall hike your way to stunning views of waterfalls and fall colors or tour the mines. Hunters love this area too.
Houghton and Ironwood are just 50 minutes away if you need to see a movie, go to a fancy restaurant or do some antiquing.
The chalet reminds me of my grandparents house.... an odd assortment of furniture with original bathrooms. But don't worry about the pink toilet because it is very clean. The beds are firm and have snuggly down comforters to keep you warm.
The loft area has two queen size beds and a half bath, as well as a mini office area. It has a huge built in desk for your spouse to get some work done or for art projects for the kids. This area also has an assortment of books and board games. The main floor has two bedrooms, full bath, kitchen and a living room with fireplace and cable TV. You can walk out to the huge deck from this level. The entry level has another full bath and living area with TV, sleeper sofa and fireplace. The kitchen has all the utensils you need to make scrumptious meals(not included).

Great Place to Relax
Great Place to Relax
All the comforts of home right across the street from Lake Superior with its endless beach. The owner has everything you need for a clean, comfortable stay. He is easy to work with and quick to answer any questions you might have. The pictures are accurate in describing the property. No complaints from the six of us after spending a week at the chalet. The house has plenty of room for activities and even a lower level for some private time. Everything was in good, working order. As mentioned in the listing, there are stairs to the main level, either from inside or outside but they can be bypassed by walking on the grass down a slight slope to the new driveway. The property is an easy drive from the Porcupine Mountains, Bond Falls, Adventure Mine Tours, and many other places in the U.P. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this place has it all.

About: My dad bought this cabin to live in during the summer. I call it a chalet because it reminds me of a swiss chalet with views of the Matterhorn that I stayed in a number of years ago.
Ontonagon is a peaceful place. Sometimes you need to get away from the big city and relax. My dad loves the outdoors so he really loved it's proximity to all the state parks and of course Lake Superior.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The sand at the beach is so fantastic. Great for sand castles and soft enough to walk on with bare feet.
