About Kathy Mantey

My name is Kathy Mantey. I decided to get involved in vacation rentals after renting one in Florida many years ago. The experience is so much better than being in a hotel. It feels like a home away from home. I am married to Jerry Mantey and have 3 children. I value dearly the "family vacation" and having the time to be together and share experiences and make beautiful memories. . I look forward to time together with them along with other family and friends.

Kathy Mantey purchased this chalet in 2016

Why Kathy Mantey chose Bellaire

This truly offers the home away from home experience. We purchased this Chalet because it offers many activities year round. The setting is peaceful yet so close to everything. There is plenty of room to have multiple families and spread out.

What makes this chalet unique

Golfing and skiing/snowboarding are right here in the resort and Lake Bellaire is just a short drive (3 miles) away. The benefit of the private beach club and use of indoor/outdoor pools and hot tub make this location ideal. There is always something to do around the area!

Very comfortable and everything we needed for our friends getaway

  • 5 of 5

Every summer, a group of our friends rent a house in Northern Michigan. This year we stayed at Mantey's Chalet for the first time in Bellaire. The Chalet was very welcoming and clean when we arrived. Loved the large yard for the kids to play and the bonfire pit was a great night cap every evening. The Chalet had plenty of room for all 12 of us, with more than enough beds.

Many golf courses within a mile and we played Hawk's Eye on Saturday morning, beautiful course. 15 minute ride to Torch Lake and very close to Short's Brewery.

The main floor toilet was acting up but Kathy was extremely attentive and had her handyman over ASAP to get it fixed. She was amazing to rent from and offered many suggestions for us around the area. We never made it to the beach club unfortunately but I imagine we will be back soon.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend staying at the Chalet with friends and/or family. Big house, lots of space inside and out and very relaxing. We loved it!
