Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chalet in Michaywe - Cawthorne's 4 Seasons Chalet

5 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Retreat on a wooded acre lot near golf, lakes, & trailhead

Make this spacious chalet your up north hideaway! There’s plenty of room for your golf outing, family gathering or skiing destination during the winter months. Featuring a large wrap around deck, gas grill, sun room, foosball table and 5 bedrooms, our home can accommodate up to 12 comfortably.

Nestled on over an acre of pristine Northern Michigan forest, this the perfect location for those seeking the serenity and beauty of Northern Michigan!

Our kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes and utensils…and a ton of storage space! We have all of the conveniences of home including coffee maker, fridge and freezer, range and oven, microwave, toaster & dishwasher!

This home is the perfect getaway, no matter the season.

Winter enthusiasts can enjoy snowmobiling, skiing, sledding, ice fishing, and hunting.

Fall is the perfect time to view the incomparable colors of Northern Michigan.

During spring, watch nature come back to life.

Summer at our home is pure bliss, with multiple golf courses within walking distance, and numerous lakes a stones throw from our front door.

There are over 20 golf courses, several casinos (Turtle Creek, Odawa, Leelanau Sands), numerous downhill ski resorts (Boyne Mountain, Shanty Creek, Treetops Resort), cross country skiing trails, Avalanche Bay indoor water park and many beautiful state parks (Otsego Lake, Young, Hartwick Pines) all within minutes of the retreat.

If a day trip is your idea, we are only 45 minutes from Traverse City, Mackinaw City or Mackinac Island and 30 minutes to Petoskey, Charlevoix and Elk Rapids. There are also many beautiful smaller communities, festivals and events that make Northern Michigan a great place to vacation.

Cousins Weekend

  • 4 of 5

It was an over all great place for our cousins weekend. There are stairs to the main level and another set of stairs to the upper level. We "thought" the house was supplied with basic necessities, which was not true in our case. Had to make a quick run out for TP. It was again, very suitable with open area between kitchen and main living area. Owner was great at communicating from beginning of rental through. Thank -You!

Snowmobile getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property. The owner was very prompt in all of our dealings. The home was very clean and well stocked. We had a couple of families and had a great stay. The trails were close and in the afternoon we enjoyed sitting around and playing some games. We will be renting this property again.

Nice enough for an older home, NO AC, pricey

  • 3 of 5

House was ok, but it has no AC. Our fault I guess for not noticing that in the description, but should be noted. Pluses include the number of people it can accommodate, and the supplies included were plentiful (TP, paper towels, etc). Main sofa is in need of replacement. One TV by today's standards is not up to snuff....esp if your main selling feature is bigger crowds. Grill needs replacing. Fixed main screen sliding door myself. We do this sort of rental every year, and this was the most expensive we've done in 8 years, and tbh, the least appealing of them all. Sorry. Needs some tlc esp at this price point.

Owner's Response: Brad: As you are aware, this home is new to us, and we are still trying to glean what our guests do and do not care for. Thankfully, every review with the exception of yours has been overwhelmingly positive. That being said we will always work to address VALID concerns for future guests. A couple of points I would make...95% of northern Michigan homes do not have central A/C , as it is rarely necessary. Our location in the woods, and proximity to the lakes make it even less of an issue at our home. Additionally, our home has multiple windows, sliding doors, and fans provided (as detailed in our listing) in those rare instances where the clean northern air needs to be piped in. As for the TV, grill and couch, these are all items accurately represented in both the description and photos of the listing. I apologize if they did not meet your standards. Frankly, the idea of having a single TV in the open living area is to encourage family interaction, and to accentuate the natural beauty and allure of the surrounding area. Lastly, in reference to price point, I spent a lot of time researching surrounding and comparable properties and have to tell you, we offer great value. You will be hard pressed to find any rental property which sleeps twelve, and offers the amenities and surroundings of our home at our price point. Again, you are the only guest to have raised THIS as an issue. Thank you for taking the time to share your insight. I wish that you would have contacted me on the personal phone number I provided to you over the course of your week long stay, so I could have worked with you at the time to rectify any legitimate issues. We will continue to work to insure a quality experience for all of our guests. Wishing you the best in the future.
