Seniors: Come one, come all! This space is great for those over 60. Sometimes when renting a home, you are never too sure about the terrain: is the home on top of a hill, is parking on a steep slope, are there 100 steps to the beach or the unit, etc. There are 3 levels to this home, however the steps are average between levels.  This home gets the FVR approval for the young at heart!

Silver Chalet - Quiet destination, beautiful Chalet
We were upgraded to the Silver Chalet by Freshwater vacation customer service(outstanding by the way) after our original rental turned out to be quite unacceptable. It was a half hour from our original stay, and absolutely perfect! We were looking for an isolated stay, where we could enjoy waterfront and a nice home away from home. Silver Chalet has all of those things. It is a very clean, well kept chalet, and we thoroughly enjoyed all of its upgrades and amenities both inside and out. Thank you Freshwater!


Kim, we're so glad that everything worked out well for you.  Thank you for the kind remarks for FVR.  We make every attempt to make sure that our guests are happy with their choice of property.    We do hope to see you back again.

Awesome place, very clean, beautiful cabin
This cabin looked brand new; construction is so high quality, and the decoration details were beautiful. The location is so remote, but once in the cabin, the view of the lake, the trees, the surroundings are so peaceful. The weather happened to be perfect the 5 days we stayed. Our stay here was absolutely perfect, I never had to call the manager. We had a great vacation


Claudia, thank you for this lovely review!  5 days of sun and fun in Michigan is pretty great.  We're glad that you chose us for your vacation, and we hope to work with you again.

Silver Chalet Review
A wonderful home with lots of space. If you are looking for a decor that is very cottage/lodge style, this home is the place. Its located on a secluded road with a few places. Lots of amenities, a well equipped kitchen and home. The agency was great as the grill was having some challenges and got us another the next day. The home says close to snowmobile trails, its 6 miles to Trail 8 in the North and about 8 miles to UP18 in the south. If you are looking for a high end home, we would recommend checking out this property.

Martin, thanks for this great review!  Silver Chalet, as you said, is a fabulous property.  It has a magnificent stone fireplace and  a sauna for relaxation.  It sleeps 6-8 in 4 bedrooms and also has 4 bathrooms.  There is a washer and dryer for guest's convenience.  We hope to see you back again.

Wonderful Stay!!
Absolutely beautiful property. Home was fully stocked and very comfortable. The family thoroughly enjoyed the sauna, pool table and ping pong table. We had a minor glitch with directions to the property - management company was very responsive. I would highly recommend.

Carol, we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed staying at Silver Chalet, and that you recommend it.  Having 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, it sleeps 6-8.  It is on Lake Michigamme, and in the winter guests can snowmobile right from the property.  It has a magnificent stone fireplace to warm up in font of after after playing outside.  We look forward to your return.
