About Alison & Brian

We're a close-knit family living in the Midwest that really treasures togetherness, making loving memories and healthy, wholesome fun.

Alison & Brian purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Alison & Brian chose Upper Peninsula Michigan

We have a large family and extended family. This property allows multiple families to be close together and really share each other's company. Nobody has to jump in a car or go back to a sterile hotel room in the middle of the evening. Family and friends can hang out as late as they want and retire to their beds a few steps away.

What makes this chalet unique

The surroundings are serene, pure and breathtaking. Ski Brule has one of the earliest starts and latest ends to skiing in the Midwest. And, excellent fishing and hunting are nearby. The town of Iron River can provide golf, restaurants, groceries or antiquing just a few minutes away. This property also boasts a hot tub, sauna, scenic deck and fire pit. It's also great for large groups and multi-family outings. It also has two full kitchens and two bathrooms. Nordic Haus is also just a few 100 yards from one of the county snowmobile trails (#15). So it's ski-in/ski-out, and snowmobile-in/snowmobile-out.

Beautiful chalet just next to Ski Brule

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay with my family at the Nordic Haus. Loved the cozy atmosphere with big comfy couches surrounding a warm fireplace and plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed getting to use the spacious kitchens to cook together. I would highly recommend!

The chalet was great - in comfort and value

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find a place for 20 people to stay together for such great price. This is one of those places! We had a great stay with many comforts in a beautiful setting! The beds were really comfortable! The only bad part was that we went to ski for 3 days and the ski area was closed for two of them due to high winds (not that that has anything to do with the chalet, but that part of our trip was a bummer).

Great 1st year at the Nordic Haus

  • 4 of 5

This was our first year here at the Nordic Haus and would definitely stay again. Great location to the ski slopes. We had plenty of room for our family as a couple of them were not able to come as planned. We made a lot of great memories here with the kids and grandkids. The house felt like a home. The hot tub was a blessing.

The inside was freezing when we arrived and we were not familiar with the type of heat but we figured it out. There seemed to be a lot of light fixtures, like ceiling fans etc with light bulbs burned out. The bathroom on the second floor did have some mold around the shower door and towels racks were coming off the wall. The new TV's were nice but like they said they internet was not the greatest.(But we were there to ski). The above issues we feel do not warrant a bad review just need a little more TLC. My communication with the owners was minimal but they were very quick to respond. We would definitely stay here again!!

Another great year at Nordic Haus!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Nordic house for more then 15 years. You go where it feels like home. We always know what we will get when we arrive. Brian and Alison are great communicators and have gone out of their way to make sure our stay is a great experience. It's better then when we first arrived long ago. If you are a snow loving group, this is the place for you! Thank you again and we look forward to next year!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Nordic Haus for our annual golf weekend in the UP for over 15 years and every year we are so happy with the lodging and accommodations. Its perfect for our group of 10-16 people. Good location, near town, lots of space and beds for everyone, and the condition of the chalet is very nice. We will be coming back again next year!
