The Chalet is a cozy retreat on the shores of Lake Michigan... And is part of a more expansive property (see listings of the Large Thatch House, Sunset Villa, VRBO listing #892820 and The Cottage #892824).
Set back behind the main house , The Chalet is entirely separate with no access from the main house. With its own private entrance, The Chalet offers a "secret hideaway" made for the romantic at heart.... Perfect for honeymooners from Castle Farms, anniversary celebrations, romantic birthday getaways, and so much more!
A "magic" spiral staircase leads to the secluded couple's bedroom on the lower level, while the children can play and sleep on the level above, in the "overhead" loft.
The kitchen and living area offer rustic charm, being handmade by "unknown small mystical craftsmen" working late at night by candle light. It is said that if one sits quietly on a moonlit night, these magical gnomes can be spotted checking on the Chalet to make certain that everything is still in perfect condition....
The charming Chalet can be enjoyed as a romantic getaway for a couple who will find their master suite downstairs and a living area and custom-made kitchen above, or for family visitors, there is the awesome carpeted loft area with two twin beds. The main floor also has a full size futon that will function as a bed along with a half-bath.
During the day, walk to the white sandy beach, just steps from your door, to enjoy the beautiful lake, or walk 3 or 4 minutes into town for shopping and restaurants. You'll walk to the beautiful Charlevoix marina/park in under 5! It all adds up to a very relaxing stay.
For those interested in lengthy exercise sessions, there are beautiful walking paths and bike trails and even 2 fitness centers nearby. The Chalet's close proximity to the beach makes it ideal for those who enjoy water sports. During the summer months paddle boards are rented right at the shore.
The Chalet is a magical vacation experience. Please read the reviews of The Chalet to see what our guests thought of their visit.
