house rental amenities


This spacious chalet has a master suite loft with two full beds, a large full bathroom, and fabulous views of the lake from the large lakeside windows.  The main level has a  kitchen with everything that you need right down to the dishwasher.  The main level bedroom has a queen size bed in it (all linens are provided for your convenience).  Another full bathroom is also located on the main floor, as well as a full size washer and dryer.  The living room is nice and open with amazing views and has a large stone fireplace.  There is a nice size sunroom off of the living room that houses a futon for sleeping as well.


This retreat sits on 160 acres of private land with plenty of wild life (so be careful driving).  The property sits on a private 25 acre lake called Downs Lake.  This is a natural spring lake that is as pure as they come!  Great swimming off of the swim raft, and fabulous fishing with one of the many boats included with this rental.

Other exterior features include a large fire pit with numerous chairs for sitting around the fire in the evenings making smores.  Extensive decking on the house provides a perfect place for entertaining, along with a gas grill.

Come explore....come enjoy....our Chalet Retreat!

traveler reviews for this fife lake house rental

From tragedy to a treasure

Review submitted: December 30, 2012   Date of arrival: December 18, 2012

This was a wonderfulful find for us, we absolutly loved it and felt quite at home here. Private but close to stores and shops. We can not wait to come back for a visit in the summer. Linens and towels were a plus for us as we flew in from Wyoming, we needed to buy only our food, even a washer and dryer was provided. Thank you Carol and Steve for all your help during the power outage, we will be back. Vickie and Larry

Downs Lake Chalet!

Review submitted: July 23, 2011   Date of arrival: July 16, 2011

Relaxing and peaceful chalet retreat! Located on a mostly private lake allows serenity and the ambience of the remote cottage feeling! There are three private sleeping quarters. The loft with two full beds, a first floor bed with a queen and sunroom with a futon. The couch, loveseat and chaise lounger can also be used if needed. The whole chalet looks directly onto the lake and has central air throughout or the ability to open windows and french doors for a nice breeze on those mild days!

The chalet features a multi-level deck as well and row boat and paddle boat to take you out to the floating swim dock to swim. Nice warm lake temperature to get right in.

A quick five minute ride to fife lake with a nice public beach and snack bars and ice cream. A 30 minut drive to downtown Traverse City ....West on Fife Lk Rd, Left on Suppky Rd, Right on High Lake Rd, Left on Hammond Rd then make a Right on Three or Four mile or Garfield Rd to take you into the city. Nice drive and eady route complete with signs.

Ken Knapp

Owners response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay Ken! You are welcome any time to come and see us again!
