Lake Leelanau Cozy Chalet
average rating of 4.25 based on 4 reviews

Great weekend stay on Lake Leelanau!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the Cozy Chalet for the Memorial Day weekend. We were there for several of us to run the Bayshore Marathon, which is a great event! We had 4 adults and 4 kids and the house was perfect for us. Very clean upon arrival. Beautiful view of Lake Leelanau! The adults slept in the two main floor bedrooms and the kids slept in the loft. There was plenty of room for what we needed and we would definitely stay again. Only 15 min drive to downtown TC. Thanks, Tom!

Perfect Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

The cozy chalet was perfect for our group of four adults staying the weekend. The cabin had four great queen size beds, two of which in the loft and two of which in their own bedroom. The bathroom was very clean and worked great. The kitchen and dining area worked well for cooking our own meals and eating together. The living area was cozy but accommodated the group of us playing games and relaxing. The cabin had plenty of parking and a nice field next to it as well as short walking distance to the big lake. Overall we had a great experience at the cozy chalet and would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

Would not stay there again

  • 2 of 5

Dishes in the cupboard were not clean! Something was spilled down the front of the dish machine. Not very good up keep on the place! Furniture, mattresses, pillows are worn out and need to be replaced! Paint pealing off bathroom walls. Never got a key to lock the door, called the owner but he didn't come over, just said he would have the cleaning lady check on it, but she never showed up either! No extra blankets or sheets.

Would not stay there again.

Great family vacation! Going back this summer!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Lake Leelanau and we had a great time. This location was perfect for our family reunion, where we actually rented 3 different cabins, including the Cozy Chalet. There was plenty of space for getting together in the pavilion for cookouts or even in the porch areas for the adults while there was room to play games for the kids.

We stayed in the Cozy Chalet, with 3 kids upstairs and two sets of adults in the two bedrooms downstairs. It was good sized and clean. The air conditioning and washer / dryer were great for the long stay, which is something that you don't always get in a rental.

The owner was very helpful in setting things up and was around every day to ensure our vacation was going well.

The views were great from all rooms, even the Cozy Chalet which was slightly up the hill had a beautiful view. While there is no beach, the kids did play in the water and Lake Leelanau has several sand bars that we took the kids to on a boat. Finally, it was only about 20 minutes to the sand dunes of Lake Michigan when we decided to take a trip.

All in all, an excellent vacation and we are coming back in 2013!
