About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 3 Baths (Sleeps 14)

Make your reservations now for The Beulah Chalet - modeled after a chalet in Zug, Switzerland. The WiFi and Phone equipped Chalet features a brand new kitchen with custom cabinets, granite countertops, new refrigerator, gas stove/oven, over-the-stove microwave, built in hutch, and kitchen table/chairs. It has wood beamed ceilings, paneled walls on the main floor, three balconies, and a fireplace as the centerpiece of the family room. The Chalet is the perfect place for your summer or winter Northern Michigan getaway!

The Beulah Chalet has room enough for a multi-family vacation, sleeping 8 in three bedrooms with queen size beds and 2 more in the first floor apartment equipped with a trundle bed, and as many as six more in the built in bunk beds. One of three full bathrooms with shower or shower/tub is located on each floor.

The fully equipped eat-in kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, as well as ample pots, pans, and cookware gadgets will satisfy any gourmet chef. The dining room table provides seating for 6 - 8, and the kitchen seats 4. Two full size Weber grills with charcoal, lighter, and tools are ready to prepare the feast that doesn't belong in the oven. The pantry is stocked with spices, seasonings, oils and vinegars as well as all the other things you'll need to make your favorite meals. There is a crock pot, blender, toaster, and coffee pot in the kitchen.

All linens, towels, and paper products are included in your rental. You will find high count sheets on all beds, plenty of sleeping pillows, and all paper products including paper towels, toilet tissue, Kleenex, and napkins. Soap and shampoo are in the three bathrooms.

A huge raised deck overlooks a beautiful meadow - deer and turkey can often be seen, and the bird feeder (seed provided) invites lots of birds. The family room with fireplace and upstairs sitting area provide a relaxing place to read, watch HD TV, and visit. The kids will love the built in bunk beds in the 'bunk room' as well as the bunk beds built around the chimney on the third floor. An outdoor fire pit in the back yard is perfect for star gazing and making S'mores!

The Beulah Chalet is one block North of Crystal Lake, 2 ½ miles South of the Big Platte Lake, 6 minutes to downtown Beulah, 10 Minutes to Lake Michigan, and 20 minutes to Frankfort. Sleeping Bear Dunes is an easy 20 minute drive North. Several vineyards and wineries are within an easy drive. The Crystal Mountain Ski and Golf resort is 20 minutes away. Two casinos are just 45 minutes away. Traverse City, with all of its attractions, is 45 minutes to the North.

Activities (on site and nearby):

Indoor and outdoor activities abound in and around Beulah. Outdoor activities include several golf courses, fishing (lake and stream), boating, camping, hiking, backpacking, biking, walking trails, snow skiing, cross country skiing, canoeing, putt-putt golf, go-karts, and outdoor water park. Indoor activities include shopping in all the small towns within easy driving distance, shopping at the Traverse City Mall and Outlet Mall, several day spas, vineyards, wineries, and more.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We started fishing for Steelhead and Salmon over 25 years ago and fell in love with the Northwest corner of Michigan for fishing and for family trips to see the colors in the fall. Our family and friends have come to love the Chalet as the perfect get away for any season. I hope you will, too.

Why the Owner Chose Beulah, MI, USA:
The Chalet is located in the middle of where you want to be when you travel to Northwest Michigan. It's a block off Crystal Lake, it's 6 minutes to Beulah, 15 minutes to Lake Michigan, 20 minutes to Crystal Mountain, 25 minutes to Sleeping Bear Dunes and the great towns on Leelenau Peninsula, and 40 minutes to Traverse City. Two fishing and canoeing rivers, the Platte and the Betzie, are very close. Frankfort has an A&W, a family favorite, and many other attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Chalet has lots of room and the comforts of your own home to spread out for a very relaxing vacation. It's well equiped with all the kitchen and grilling supplies you need to craft a gourmet dinner or a casual meal. The large deck overlooks a beautiful meadow - if you're lucky the deer and turkeys will pay you a visit!
