Lost Lake Chalet (Hawks, MI): Sleeps 6, Swimming on property. Gorgeous view, 1 hour from Mackinaw






Lost Lake Chalet
*Only 20 minutes from Rogers City!

SLEEPS:  6-7 Winter 

*LAKEFRONT (Lost Lake)
*PRIVATE DOCK (across the driveway, directly in front of the cabin)

*There are NEIGHBORS on both sides, which are closer than may originally appear. We ask that our guests stay ONLY in the area directly in front of the cottage. The cottage is surrounded by private land with private cottages. Having good relationships with our neighbors is important to us.

There will be a parking area plowed in between the shed and the road for you to park your vehicle or trailer. Please park your vehicle next to the shed in the plowed space so you will not have to drive down the hill and risk getting stuck. **Steep driveway. Be sure your car can handle snow or park by the shed for easier access**

Arriving at the Lost Lake Chalet, overlooking Lost Lake, head down the driveway with a noticeable incline. This is NOT EASY trailer parking. 1 small trailer MAX.  NO TURN-AROUND.  Feel free to park (with your brakes on, of course) alongside the driveway.  The shared (with the cottage next door) driveway extends downward and crosses in the front of the cottage (between the waterfront and the Lost Lake Chalet itself).

From inside the Lost Lake Chalet, you can not easily see moving vehicles, as the cottage is set at a perfect space to focus solely on the gorgeous view of Lost Lake.

This beautiful 3-bedroom, 2-bath cozy (1200 sq. ft.)  cottage is tucked off the main road and directly faces Lost Lake, in Hawks, just outside of Rogers City. While the cottage has the appearance of a chalet with the eaves and stilts facing the lake, it is actually a ranch-style home on the inside. There is not a basement.

We ask that you do NOT SMOKE (cigarettes and/or marijuana), either inside or outside. The smell easily blows back into the cottage and/or  over to the neighbors.

Walk up the stairs to the entry of the Lost Lake Chalet.  Entering the home through the foyer, you immediately will see the comfortable kitchen which overlooks the lake. Cooking in front of the lake is soothing with its openness and sense of togetherness.  The kitchen and the living room both overlook the deck, which captures the beauty of the lakefront setting of Lost Lake. 

Next to the Lost Lake Chalet is another vacation rental. If you are concerned about your outside, water's-edge privacy, this may not be the place for you.  The Lodge Lake Getaway is next door and shares a long driveway. Both cottages have their respective parking (marked) AND water access in front of or alongside their cottage.

The large deck that is constructed of cedar planking wraps around two-thirds of the home, allowing for spectacular views of the lake. Don't just look at Lost Lake, cross the driveway and jump on in! With a small sandy beach area and sandy-bottom lake, you will enjoy relaxing down by the water. The fire-pit and propane grill will top off your lake house vacation!

Inside the Lost Lake Chalet, enjoy a majestic stone-fireplace, fully-equipped kitchen with all the basic amenities, and comfortable beds! Play board games with the kiddos or grab a cup of Joe and cuddle up to watch a movie. 

Charter fishing is also available in Rogers City, just 12 miles from the Chalet, on Lake Huron. Or, you can travel 10 miles to the gorgeous Ocqueoc Falls area which offers spectacular hiking trails and swimming opportunities. Close to the Alpena to Mackinaw Snowmobile Trail, and the Hike & Bike Trails, there is tons of fun for the whole family all year round.

As an extra layer of security, we do have video cameras in the back and front of the cottage. There are no cameras inside the cottage.


Air Conditioning:  A portable air conditioning unit can be found in the chalet along with many ceiling fans throughout the home.

ATV's: YES, they are allowed! However, no driving on the lawn…only on the driveway. There are ORV trails nearby, just 15 minutes away and if you are savvy, you are able to take the back roads to get there.

Animals:  Deer, bald eagles, variety of birds, squirrels. The basics for Michigan!


     Bathroom #1: Connected to master bedroom--Full bath with jet-tub

     Bathroom #2: Full-bath with stand-up shower only. 

Beach/Swimming:  It is a sandy bottom lake. Lost Lake, at its deepest, is 17 feet. By the property there is a very shallow drop off, so it is great for small kids. Lost Lake is considered an all-sports lake, but boats generally do not come in close. The swimming area is laid out as such: Grass, to 20 feet of sand, to sandy-bottom lake. There is a swim platform for your use, it is also shared with the vacation rental next door. 

Bedroom Configuration:
                    Master Bedroom: Queen

                    Bedroom #2: 2-twins (We can convert the twin beds into a King bed. Just ask.)

           Bedroom #3: 2 -twins
           Sleeping Porch: CLOSED IN THE WINTER --Daybed with trundle---in summer only. Closed for use on October 1st.

Boat/Outdoor Toys:  Chalet has 3 canoes, but no kayaks. Life jackets and paddles are provided. 

Boat Launch: Within a mile of the chalet, you can find the Lost Lake Boat Launch which is right across the lake.  

Bugs: Typical Michigan bugs- Mosquitoes love waterfront cottages! Escape to the sun room in the evenings.

Cell phone service: AT&T=nonexistent. 

              * Boyne Mountain: 1 hour 18 minutes away (67 miles)
              * Mount Pleasant: 2 hours and 42 minutes away (168 miles)
              * Traverse City: 2 hours 22 minutes away (125 miles)               
              * Tahquamenon Falls: 2 hours and 43 minutes (144 miles) 
              * Mackinac Bridge: 1 hour and 12 minutes away ( 62 miles)

Dock: There is a 32 foot private dock that you are welcome to use. Feel free to launch your boat on the other side of the lake and dock it right outside the Chalet! (Dock is pulled for winter around the first weekend in October)

Fire-pit: Yes! Guests need to supply their own wood.

Fireplace (available October-April ONLY):  Yes, inside enjoy a natural gas fireplace in the family room (creates a wonderful peaceful, cozy atmosphere!). Does not have a blower.

Fishing: Crappie, Bass, and Northern Pike are flowing in Lost Lake!

Grill: There is a propane grill onsite. Propane is provided.

Grocery Store:  Family Fare -  100 S Bradley Hwy, Rogers City, MI 49779    (989) 734-4182    (15 minutes)

Internet/ WIFI:   Yes! Internet is available.

Lake: This in NOT an all sports lake.  Fishing boats with small motors and pontoon boats are allowed.  Jet skis and ski boats are NOT allowed.

Linens: Yes, we provide your sheets and linens. Just like a hotel, the beds will be made for you upon arrival. If you are fussy about the thread count of your sheets, just let me know, and I’ll make sure we leave a bed open for your sheets. We have just the basic sheets, pillows, pillow cases and bath towels. Swim towels not provided, please bring from home.

Neighbors: Please adhere to the property boundary lines (to the left if looking out at the water) separated by a split rail fence. The land next door and down the road is private property and not public land for hiking or exploring. There are Private Property signs up at the beach, driveway and along their yard. Please be conscientious of the nearby neighbors, especially on the driveway. You are within a cottage community.  Please, no loud music or smoking (of any kind) either inside or outside the cabin. We have other places for you if you would like to blast or smoke your favorites while on vacation.

Parking: The driveway is on a hill and at the end of the hill you can park in front of the chalet. This driveway is also shared by the cottage next door (Lost Lake Getaway) as well, so you may encounter a few cars crossing in front of the Chalet, as they head to cottage next door. Two cars easily or truck/trailer combo. Guests will park in front of chalet on driveway. The driveway also extends past the Lost Lake Chalet to the cottage next door, known as the Lost Lake Getaway. Your cars/trucks/trailers/ATVs/boats/snowmobiles must not block the driveway.

Pets:  Guests are not permitted to bring pets.

Privacy: On the northern side of Lost Lake Chalet, there is the Lost Lake Getaway (which sleeps 6 people). On the southern side, the other cottages are not easily visible. This is not a place if you are looking for a guarantee of exterior privacy for your family.  While the cottages are not on top of each other, as the cottages are in some more popular tourist areas in Michigan, yet they are within 20 feet. There are not any fences which delineate the spaces. Still, our expectations are that of a good neighbor policy. 

SmokingCigarettes or marijuana is not permitted at this property (homes are too close together). Any violation may result in the guest asked to depart with no refund given. 

Space: Nice, modern, log cabin interior ranch-style home which appears to be an exterior chalet.

Televisions:  TV with DVD player available

Towels: Yes, we provide basic bathroom towels. Please bring your own beach towels. There is a washer/dryer you may use during your stay.

Washer and dryer:  Yes, guests are open to using the stackable washer and dryer. Laundry soap is provided.

Wood: Guests will need to purchase wood either at the grocery in Rogers City or on their way up to the Chalet along the side of the road.

Lost Lake Chalet
What a beautiful location with all the amenities! The house was very clean and having the beach for our granddaughter was just wonderful. We would be happy to use Freshwater Vacation Rentals again they were very responsive and a joy to work with!


Thank you Benjamin for the lovely compliment to our staff, as well as the home itself! We are so happy your granddaughter was able to have a great time at the beach, and we hope we can have your family back again!

Amazing lake home stay
We loved our stay at Lost Lake Chalet. The photos don’t do the home justice. The lake setting was so peaceful and relaxing.

Gloria, we're so glad that you found peace and relaxation at Lost Lake Chalet.  That is what vacation is all about!  We hope to see you back again.

Open, decent layout, really nice deck
Overall the stay here was nice. We had all the beds filled and didn't feel cramped at all. There are a few items that would be nice to see fixed up (screen doors and a few bulbs were out). It would also be amazing if the light switches were labeled. I know I read this in several other reviews as well in the guest book. Overall our stay was fantastic and I would happily rent these cabins again.


Roy, we would love to have you back to Lost Lake Chalet.  We're so happy to know that overall everything was fantastic.   We appreciate your feedback and will pass it on.

Beautiful property!
The lost Lake chalet is a great rental. I take my nieces and nephews on an Auntie trip every year and this was the trip of the ages. The kids loved having their own rooms, the lake, the comfy living room, the kitchen and breakfast bar and of course jumping off the swim deck.

Great holiday at Lost Lake
I stayed at Lost Lake Chalet with my family over the New Year's Eve holiday. The house was adorable, comfortable and super clean! The Christmas tree and holiday decor were much appreciated! It was a great place to relax, get outdoors, play games and enjoy movies by the fire. We would love to come back and see the lake in the summertime!

Dana, we'd love to have you come back in the summer!  We're glad that you enjoyed the holiday decor, and that you had a great stay.

Very nice. Very clean - great setting with gorgeous views. The beds were comfortable and the two bedrooms we used were separated by another bedroom. So good privacy. We hope to return again in the summer to enjoy the lake!

Nancy, we would love to have you come back in 2021!  It's great to know that you had a good stay.  We enjoyed having you as our guest and will look for you again next summer.

Very Fun Stay in Northeast Michigan
We loved the Lost Lake Chalet! The cabin was very nice, spacious, and clean. The utensils, etc. on hand were great. Our kids loved using the boats, building in the sand, and swimming in the lake. Outdoor fires were nice as well. Checking in and out was very easy and the deck overlooking the lake was also nice. The boats were fun but we would have enjoyed having kayaks as well. Fishing was also very limited, we weren't able to catch anything. The lake is beautiful, especially at night and in the early morning, and it's great being away from things where it is so quiet. Highly recommended!

Andrew, thank you for this great review and recommendation!  It sounds like you all had a blast.  We loved having you as our guests and hope to see you again.

When we first arrived we were token back by the beauty of the lake and the cabin. As we walked in we were just as pleased with the set up and the coziness of the cabin. They had everything you could think of ready for us from groceries, board games, sun screen, floats, anything you would need. We will definitely be coming back hopefully every year. We just want to thank the owners for such a great weekend!

Robert, what a great review!  Thank  you for that.  We love when our guests like a property as much as we do.  Lost Lake Chalet sleeps 8-9 in the summer months in 3 bedrooms.  The deck surrounds 2/3s of the cottage, which is perfect for looking out over the lake.  We look forward to your return!

Very clean and everything as expected and more

Robert, we are so pleased to hear that Lost Lake Chalet was even better than you expected.  At the Chalet, guests can enjoy a majestic stone-fireplace, fully-equipped kitchen with all the basic amenities, and comfortable beds! It sleeps 6-7.  We hope to see you back again.

The cabin was beautiful. The fireplace blower motor did not work, other wise everything was excellent.

Fall Weekend on Lost Lake
Such a beautiful view of Lost Lake and the fall colors! Our chalet/cabin was quite nice. Most kitchen utensils provided (But, there were no steak knives, baking sheet, or strainer for meal preps. We worked around them.) We suggest bringing gallon jugs of water to make coffee and for cooking. Overall, the accommodations were very good and we enjoyed our extended weekend stay.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Michele, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed Lost Lake Chalet.  Fall is a gorgeous time to be there.  It sleeps 6-7, and guests are welcome to bring their snowmobiles and ORVs.  There is a great deck for morning coffee.  We'd love to have you back again.

Wonderful Weekend Retreat
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lost Lake Chalet. The house was clean and cozy. The open floor plan and barrier free entrance made it easy for our daughter that is wheelchair bound to enjoy the space with us. Just about anyone that can not navigate steps would be able to enter the home from the screen porch or deck to enjoy the cabin and beautiful view of the lake. The driveway is a pretty steep incline so getting her to the beach was tough but we did do it. The lake is so nice!!! We loved that fast boats and jet skis arent allowed on the lake. Because its quiet, we enjoyed the wildlife - a loon entertained us every day. Docking the boat for my son to fish at his leisure was perfect. The beach and fire pit area were great. The neighbors to one side are very, very close and share the driveway. With our 2 vehicles and a boat, parking was tight. It was probably harder on the neighbor than us because they had to go by us to get in/out. Overall, our experience was so awesome that we didnt want to leave. We would love to go back.

Sarah, thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review.  Anytime a guest says their time was awesome, we know we have succeeded.  We hope to come back to Lost Lake Chalet.

Loved the Lost Lake Chalet!
We loved our stay at the lost lake!!! The property was well represented in the pictures and the view onto the lake is magical! The property was clean and well taken care of. We would love to come back!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Amy, it so good to hear that you loved Lost Lake Chalet!  With a deck that wraps around 2/3 of the house, it's a pleasure to sit outside and enjoy the fabulous lake views.  There is fishing, hiking, swimming, biking - it's all there for your enjoyment!  We do hope that you come again.

This was an excellent vacation rental! Great property with plenty of space even with the shared driveway and lot... Tons of things to keep the kids busy! Only request would be central air and possibly more sand added to the water in the beach area; it gets pretty mucky about half way down the dock....

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
Brook, we are so happy that you found Lost Lake Chalet to be  an excellent vacation rental.  The property has amazing views that can be viewed from the deck that goes around  two-thirds of the home,and it is only 1 hour from Mackinaw Island.  Inside you will find a large stone fireplace for cool evenings.  There is a paddle boat and a canoe for the guests to use.  We will let the owners know about your suggestions.  We hope to see you back again

Lost Lake Chalet
Wife and I enjoyed this mini-nirvana so much. Thanks for renting it to us!

Freshwater Vacation Rentals Response
William, we love your description of Lost Lake Chalet as a mini-nirvana.  How perfect.  There is a large deck that is constructed of cedar planking that wraps around two-thirds of the home, allowing for spectacular views of the lake.  It also has a fabulous fireplace in case the mornings or evening get cool.  You can see deer, bald eagles, and a variety of birds during your stay.  A  mini-nirvana indeed!

Awesome stay!
Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation! We will be back!:)

Sora, the best thing you could say is that you want to come back!  Lost Lake Chalet is set at a perfect space to focus solely on the gorgeous view of Lost Lake. A deck wraps around two-thirds of the home and it has a majestic stone-fireplace inside.  One paddle boat and one canoe is available for your enjoyment.  The perfect summer vacation spot.
Jul 2019
What a perfect getaway for my family. The house was perfect and the grounds were well kept. The beach and swimming area were perfect for young children. We spent a lot of time on the deck and it was the perfect spot. Great getaway

Matt, it is great to hear that Lost Lake Chalet worked out so well for you and your family.  It certainly does have a gorgeous view of Lost Lake, and the sandy bottom of the lake makes for great swimming.  We'll look forward to your return!

Jun 2019
Such a wonderful and peaceful place.

Cynthia, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Lost Lake Chalet.  It is a gorgeous property with windows across the front of the lodge for you viewing of Lost Lake.  The lake has a sandy bottom, and by the property there is a very shallow drop off, so it is great for small kids.  we hope to come back again!

Love Lost Lake Chalet!
My husband and I just loved it there! It was so quiet and peaceful! The sun hits just right in the living room for an afternoon nap! Will most definitely be back!

Kristine, we are so happy that Lost Lake Chalet worked out well for you.  Given that the lake is not an all sports lake, this is a quiet property, making it easy to relax.  We look forward to your return!
