About Andrew Danowski

As a Michigan native, Northern Michigan was always full of some of the best memories I had growing up. The last 12 years I have lived abroad serving in the Army and later supporting the Army as a contractor. I was finally able to save enough money to buy my dream vacation home close to the tip of the mitt. However my wife and I would like to rent our home so you can also share the same memories we have been able to enjoy since purchasing this property.

Andrew Danowski purchased this Chalet in 2014

Why Andrew Danowski chose Nunda

This is a cozy Lake Side Chelat hidden 10 minutes off I-75. Just enjoy the Day on the all sports lake with the family. We offer a paddle boat, two kayaks and there is a public launch if you decide to bring or rent a water craft. Kids like to search and catch frogs and turtles or just jump of the dock and swim with a raft. In 2015 we put up a new swing set and dumped 30 yards of sandy beachfront. This is not just a rental property but what we call home when we are in the US and take care of it as such. Our goal is to make sure you are as happy and as comfortable as we are when we are home.

What makes this Chalet unique

Perfectly located to visit near by towns, like Petoskey, Gaylord, Mackinac and Rodgers City are all roughly 30 minutes drive if you want to get out and explore the Northern tip of MI. Indian river is a 10 minute drive if you want to rent virtually any kind of outdoor utility vehicle or water craft. When you are done exploring you can come back to the quite lake of Wildwood and listen to the Loons calling and enjoy the sunset view.

                                                                  John M.

                                                                  The house is beautifully updated, spacious, and comfortable. The owner supplies all necessary amenities. The beds are plentiful and comfortable for large groups. My Dad caught 4 pike from the lake through the ice. Close enough to ski resorts, but far away to be quiet.

                                                                  Plenty to do on down days including games and hot tub. Owner is very responsive via email to questions and suggestions. Would definitely stay here again

                                                                  Hidden Gem...perfect for families.

                                                                  christina w.

House is beautifully decorated and couldn't be any cleaner. It was stocked with everything you could need including board games and movies for the children. All of the beds were comfortable, the kids just loved the bunks. We never ran out of hot water! The hot tub was fabulous... both adults and kids enjoyed it very much. This place truly is a gem!

                                                                  Owner's Response:


                                                                  Thank you for taking great care of our home and we are very happy we could accommodate your families stay for a winter break in Northern MI. We are also glad you were able to visit Boyne to enjoy some down hill tubing with the family. We would love to have your family back again and if you are looking to enjoy the summer on the lake, remember to look for our newly remodeled rental coming up on the market this summer as our current home is already booked for this summer season.

A polar Plunge and outdoor BBQ... I am jealous. Just wanted to say thank you for taking care of our home and glad you enjoyed the Hot Tub and of the view of Wildwood Lake. Hope your group can make it out again.

                                                                  Thoroughly enjoyed a long winter weekend with friends. The accommodations were excellent and exceeded our expectations. We did not have a single issue with our stay and the owner is very easy to work with. I highly recommend this place.
