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.

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!

Nice place, good location.

Overall, reasonably happy with the Nordic Haus. A bit tired but after sharing feedback directly with the owner, he appreciated the comments, offered a small refund and assured us he would make the upgrades, repairs and changes.

Such an incredible stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have brought a large group to stay at the Nordic Haus, and I will continue to book! The house more than provided the room and amenities we needed, and the owners are very accommodating. The look on the students faces when we pull up to the house and as they explore the house is priceless :)

Thank you for another INCREDIBLE experience!!

Great Value, but in need of improvements

  • 3 of 5

The process of renting this Chalet for a family wedding over the Memorial Day weekend was pretty easy. The owners answered all questions and emails promptly. The property itself was quite large. We did find the property to be a little on the run-down side. The furniture was very old and damaged. The bathrooms were small and not very clean. The carpets throughout the property were stained and very dingy looking. Many of the windows would not open (damaged cranks) or did not have the screen in them. We opened the hot tub on the first night, and it was green with a lot of foam and debris on the top. However, after a few days the discoloration had cleared and it was able to be used.

There is a nice fire pit in the front of the property, with a lot of wood to use. This was nice, but during that use the septic system had overflowed and ran down the hill right were the pit is located. The overflow happened twice during our stay, once in the evening and the following day.

The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/cookware. However the refrigerator on the upper level was very difficult to keep cold.

Not everything was bad. The beds were comfortable (memory foam mattress), and there was a sauna upstairs (did not use). The Wi-Fi and Television(s) worked well. As we said, the chalet is a great value for large groups when you compare against other options in the area. We just feel the property could use some basic updating.

Owner's Response: My apologies for your less than stellar experience. We work very hard to provide a clean, comfortable and enjoyable experience for all of our guests. And, as you noted, we respond promptly to the questions and concerns of our guests. We had never had a problem with the septic before. And we have since switched to a more septic-friendly toilet paper to avoid that problem in the future. Nonetheless, we had the septic promptly pumped. And I am confident we will never have that problem again. We bought the chalet 3 years ago, and it has gone through many updates and upgrades. We recently had all of the kitchen cabinets and counters in both kitchens replaced. The three 43" HDTVs are less than a year old. And, we have replaced or upgraded about half of the beds. Every dollar we receive is invested back into the house, and then some. But it takes time to make things nicer and to improve things. We thank you for your patience as Nordic Haus continues to improve. And, we continue to make upgrades to Nordic Haus. For us, this is a labor of love. We share our house with families like yours, so that they can share great memories in the Yoop, like we do. Kindest regards, Brian & Alison
