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 Wolverine

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.

Awesome winter wonderland

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.

Owner's Response: Melissa, Thanks for choosing our home this holiday season and I am glad the kids got to enjoy sledding from the driveway down to the lake.

Awesome Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had an old fashioned family Christmas in this beautiful cabin and everybody loved it! We enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, PlayStation, watching movies and playing games. We went to Cook Family Farm outside of Gaylord for a beautiful horse drawn sleigh ride. Sledding on the property and Christmas Eve service at Indian River UMC were highlights. The house had plenty of space for 3 generations with teens. Would love to come back! Communication before the trip was excellent, owner helped make sure we had Christmas decorations! It will be even better when the fireplaces are usable, I know that is in the future plans. We experienced some single didit cold weather, the lower level got pretty chilly. A space heater down there would help. Overall, an awesome house and owner, I would highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: We where so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and celebrated Christmas at our home. This was our first year to do decorations because I was in the Up North early December and I knew we had the holiday season booked this year. It was not much but it was something. Glad you enjoyed them and I was able to respond to all your questions before your arrival. I also took into consideration the chilly basement and ordered an electric space heater for the basement from Amazon. Shipping is taking longer then usual but hopefully cut the chill a little. I hope to come up with a more permanent solution in the next year or two. Any how thanks again for choosing our home. Drew
