Ideally located, you are invited to take part in a vacation of unmatched beauty and unrivaled seasonal activities. This Petoskey Michigan Vacation Rental Lakefront, Beach and Ski Chalet Home offers year attractions including water sports steps from your door, great snowmobiling to miles of trails, skiing, golfing and absolutely gorgeous views of the lake.

With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on you list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the "new and ultimate" Odawa Casino in town.

The shared resort offers 450 feet of waterfront access, with your chalet being the only one on the one-of-a-kind shallow, hard bottom, sandy beach that stretches out at least 225 feet, with only waist deep water. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake.

The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your watercrafts of up to 26 feet. Also included is a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.

From the lake, you can cruise the famous and historic inland waterway. It starts on Crooked Lake, goes to Burt Lake to Mullett Lake, then out to Lake Huron! There are two marinas located within 2 miles for your watercraft rental needs.

Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 30 minutes from the resort.

Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 15 minutes from your doorstep.

Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your chalet. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation at this Petoskey rental vacation lakefront home.

This is the place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
I was planning a family gateway up north, and the biggest decision to make was where to stay. I wanted to go to different places, including Mackinac, Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Travel City... so the location was very important to us.
Once I saw the add for this Chalet I initially thought: "This is too good to be true". (Actually it turned out to be even better than expected). The first thing I did was to contact Jim; he was extremely nice, very reasonable, helpful, enthusiastic, and efficient. It was a pleasure to make business with him.
Once I got to the Chalet, it was exactly what I expected... actually it looks even better than the pics. It is gorgeous! Just by the lake with a private beach. The Chalet is equipped with everything you need. Four bedrooms with ceiling fans and an amazing balcony in the second floor, two bathrooms with enough supplies, very nice fireplace in the living room, brand new plasma, big kitchen with everything you need. But the best part is the view! Gorgeous view... to seat by the lake, bonfire, some grill, and relax. Everything the add says is there. The property is in perfect conditions. Jim makes sure that you feel at home, and actually provides you with a Binder with all the activities, dinning, Marinas of the area. I felt I was in a Resort. We were there late May and actually were able to swim in the lake. I am from Dominican Republic and you would imagine that I am used to great beaches with white sand. But this was actually very nice. The Crooked Lake had very clean water, sand up to ~1 mile, calm.... it was perfect.
The location was one of the best things. It was really central. Just took us 25mins to get to Mackinaw City, 10mins from Petoskey downtown, 15mins from Charlevoix, about an hour from the Dunes (Traverse City). It made our lives easier. We spend all mornings traveling and knowing these amazing places, and in the afternoons enjoying the Chalet.
I am a physician working at the Detroit Medical Center, and I can guarantee that you will not regret renting this property. Jim is amazing and he will make sure that you have everything you need.

Not so senior citizen friendly

  • 3 of 5
The chalet is conveniently located and adjoining grounds beautiful - lake access is wonderful.The four of us are 70+ and totally mobile but we do have joint replacements.
The spiral staircase was scarey going either direction - we thought some padding on the stairs would at least soften any falls. The mattresses were so soft and lumpy that a good night's sleep was not to be had. The living room couches were not comfortable so we sat in the kitchen which was nicely furnished.We all agreed that our age and stage in life demands upgrades in creature comforts. We did not call you Jim, since solutions to the staircase and bedding did not seem fixable. The chalet is probably more suited to a young family who spend a lot of time with outdoor activities.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the area and grounds. It is unfortunate you did not see the spiral staircase in the photos on the website. All of the mattresses are new (less than 2 yrs. old) Sealy Posturepedics. We are sorry the leather couches were not to your liking. We certainly would always welcome your return to our get-away chalet.

Great location

We traveled to Michigan from our home in Texas. We loved our home away from home. It was so comfortable and well supplied. The beds were very comfortable with soft. I would recommend this place for a girls get away or family vacation or just anyone wanting a nice place in a central location. It was so easy to get to and literally steps from Crooked Lake.

The Beachfront Chalet was awesome! It was very family friendly- enough to do for everyone! Great beachfront! It was nice to have things to do that were right on sight (basketball, volleyball, marina, fire pits). It was very clean and comfortable! My family can't wait to go back! Would recommend to anyone!

Great Chalet

  • 5 of 5
Took the family for snow and skiing in the Boyne area recently, and stayed at Jim and Elizabeth's wonderful chalet. Was really a great value, very clean, and well appointed - even a couple logs for the fireplace. It was only a short drive to the supermarket and ski hills, and had everything we needed. Adults and kids loved the place. Rank 9/10 Highly recommend!
