About Harriette Leiby
I grew up in Michigan, and I feel nothing compares to time spent and memories made in a cottage. My husband and I enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, and spending long days on the can't get enough! We enjoy a good competitive game of cornhole, and nights sitting around a bonfire. We love to watch the wildlife (eagles, osprey, ducks, loons, swans, and deer) as they swim and fish on the water.
Harriette Leiby purchased this Chalet in 2017
Why Harriette Leiby chose Stanwood
The uniqueness of this chalet caught our attention 10 years ago when we bought a cottage down the road. We always said we would love to have this place someday. The original owners sold the house to us in August 2017, and we have been renovating as time and resources allow.

MI Chalet Stay
If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it! We spent MANY hours at the river's edge. The accommodations were clean and comfortable; Troy and Harriette are great hosts. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to do it again.
Very nice property, great location and had a good time
Perfect Get Away
My husband & I loved our stay at the chalet! It is very clean and cozy. I love the decorations, you can tell they put time & effort into making this a great place to relax.
Before we came we weren't sure how well the kitchenette was going to work or if being in the lower level would be an issue for noise. They provided a full grill with side burner, so we were able to make every meal without an issue. As far as noise between floors we could hear when people were upstairs, but it didn't disturb us, even our 7 month old didn't notice (although I'm sure he was heard by others!).
We loved the porch swing, watching the sunset & going on the river in the row boat. Thank you so much for the great anniversary trip!
It was wonderful to have you and your husband and baby stay with us. We hope to see you again sometime.
Cute as can be, right on the water!!
The location is awesome with gorgeous views. While there is no full kitchen there is an ample fridge, microwave and full size grill provided. The hosts where very nice and accommodating! Love the small details including napkins, travel shampoo, extra blankets and even a bowl of ice in the freezer for drinks! The towels and blankets where so soft and comfy! Love the decor and woodsy feel of the place! Thanks for sharing with us :)
Quaint and charming chalet on the water.
This quaint and rustic chalet was perfect. My friends and I needed a place stay while our daughters attended cheer camp at Ferris State. The lower level of the chalet was the perfect choice. The view was beautiful, the cabin was cozy and the owners were friendly and readily available if needed. They had even written a cute welcome message to us Cheer moms on the chalkboard door. I wish we had planned a day to spend at the chalet to utilize the kayaks , the fire pit and to just relax and enjoy the scenery. We all enjoyed our stay. Kerry B and The other Cheer Moms
Thanks cheer moms! It was great having you, and we're happy that you enjoyed your stay.
