  • Our Home Away from Home

    "This was an exceptionally wonderful experience for my husband and myself, along with my daughter and her family. Our two granddaughters loved the pond and the deck. We loved watching the Lake Michigan sunsets and the wildlife. With so much acreage, the property is quiet and relaxed, yet so close to Lake Michigan and Petoskey and Harbor Springs to the south and Mackinaw City and beyond to the north. We took full advantage of the proximity, swimming on a beautiful Lake Michigan beach recommended to us by Margaret, the chalet's wonderful owner, and took the easy drive to catch the ferry to Mackinac Island and to see the Soo Locks and museum. The house is so pleasant and easy to be in. Margaret and Stan have thought of everything, and it is every bit as beautiful (and more) as you see in the photos they have posted. Margaret met us the first night and oriented us to the house and the area and then we were on our own to spend the delightful and delicious week at the house together as a family, making memories. I would Most definitely recommend this rental to anyone. Beautiful house, beautiful area and wonderful, easy to work with owners. Thank you so much, Margaret and Stan!"

  • Family Vacation

    "This is our 3rd time renting these cottages. There have been several updates done since the first time: new sheets, blankets, pot & pans, silverware (enough for everyone), new docks and new appliances in the lower cottage. Had a wonderful week, rented both cottages for our extended families. Swimming was great, the lake was warm. Did several kayak and canoes trips thru the different lakes. The older kids especially enjoyed the fishing, caught enough that we had fish for dinner one night. Had a campfire several nites even though the weather was quite warm. Had one rainy day but there was easily enough room at the main house table for several rounds of cards which kids and adults enjoyed. Fred and Sue were very accommodating and the rental process was easy."

  • Love this place!

    "We were plesantly surprised and found everything to be beyond what we were imagining with our stay at the Red Chalet! This is a very nice spacious home with everything that you will need. It is very easy to feel at home here. There are two bedrooms downstairs and a loft with three beds. A nice downstairs bathroom with shower, and an extra room with laundry, toilet and sink. So plenty of room for multiple couples, and to each have their own space. The house has gun games to keep you entertained and a table and chairs outside to enjoy. I can't wait to go back and enjoy this nice place in the future!"

  • Big rambling old house a short walk from downtown Charlevoix

    "We stayed at this fine old house as part of a family reunion at the end of July. With 9 in our party we appreciated the spacious downstairs areas with a living room large enough to accommodate us all and a dining room to match. There are two window air conditioning units, one in the living room, the other upstairs in the master bedroom. Other bedrooms have box fans to keep things cool. None of the other houses our extended family rented had a/c so we came out ahead. All bedrooms are upstairs. Downtown Charlevoix with its shops and restaurants is only a five minute walk away. We found ourselves timing our excursions around the drawbridge which goes up every half-hour (approximately). The wireless network was good. Beds were adequate. The kitchen lacked for nothing. A large two-car garage made it easy to keep our cars off the street (not that that would have been a problem). The only negative aspect of the house is due to its proximity to the four lane highway that runs past the front. The windows are new and well sealed, keeping much of the street noise out although from time to time the house would briefly shake when a passing truck hit a bump. Traffic dies down in the evening making this less of a problem then. Pulling out onto the highway is a bit tricky due to the curve it takes in the vicinity of the house, part of which is obscured by shrubs. Still, this was never a problem for us. Terri, the owner, is very pleasant and helpful and we enjoyed meeting her. All in all, a great base for your vacation in Charlevoix."
