Description

INSIDE THE VACATION RENTAL
 
This 2-and-a-half story Chalet will charm you with its soaring ceilings, 3 tier open layout, and stunning overview of the lake. 
 
On the main floor, you’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, dining, and living room centered around an island counter. Dine on the expandable dining table or on the deck; both tables seat up to eight. On the lower level of the deck, a gas grill and lounge furniture look over the bank (perfect for a sunset barbecue!). The entire house has a UV Air purifying system installed which kills at least 95% of the air-born viruses.
 
The main floor bedroom comes with a Sleep-Number bed, remote control ceiling fan/light, and views of the lake over the deck. Across the hall, the bathroom includes a washer/dryer. Upstairs a playful loft overlooks the great room below. There are two twin beds in the loft, a queen bed in the 2nd story bedroom, and a half bath. Climb up the ladder and find the attic loft in the ceiling’s peak, a delight for kids and board-gamers alike.

OUTDOOR SPACE
 
Parking: There is space provided for up to 2 cars in the driveway. Unload in any weather parked adjacent to the covered entrance area. 
 
On the way to the beach, a swing set offers a swing and gymnastics bar. 
 
Follow the stairs from the deck all the way down the bank to the private beach - seating and storage on landings along the way. 
 
The ebb and flow of the lake are always changing the beach and fragile bank. The private beach is usually between 10-30’ feet wide, boasting soft white sand and a gently sloping sandy lake bottom. Enjoy a walk in either direction along the waters’ edge right of way. 
 
THE LOCATION
 
Nestled atop a wooded dune, this stunning Chalet replaces the family’s small 1950’s cottage. Located 10 miles north of Benton Harbor and 10 miles south of South Haven along the lakeshore, this secluded getaway offers easy access to the region’s attractions and a remote locale that never fails to transport its denizens further than any road ever could.

Jaqua was very responsive, as was the Chalets owner, when we had questions and requests.

The Chalet is in a wooded spot, perched on a sand dune bluff high above Lake Michigan. Its fairly close to two other houses (one on each side), so not completely private, but theres still plenty of space. The access to the lake is what we came for, and it was great. As of July there was a good amount of private sandy beach. Note that its a hefty walk up/down a nice staircase. The house is a little smaller than anticipated, but was clean and totally comfortable. Theres a great two-level deck and nice grill. Only minor complaints are that the only full bathroom is pretty small with a really tight stand up shower (no tub) and theres no dishwasher.

Washer & Dryer - very nice! New patio decking & umbrella makes a great space with grill below. Gill still works well. Completed stairs is a engineering marvel and makes trips from the beach for a 70 year old, a walk in the park!
