We had a great time hitting the slopes over MLK weekend. The trail across the street from the home leads directly to a green trail that you can ski down to Schuss lodge. We also enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen and wood burning stove. Thank you!

Great Chalet, Great Location, and Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

The Byron Chalet is a slice of Northern Michigan heaven! The layout of the chalet, the views they have from the top of Schuss, and their central location to all the Shanty Creek ammeneties made this a great spot for my group. The owners were very flexible and accomoditing to our requests which made our trip that much more enjoyable. We look forward to renting the place next year and also plan on getting another group back up for ski season! Thanks again!!

Great Chalet, Great Location, and Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

The Byron Chalet is a little slice of Northern Michigan heaven! It is exactly as described and more - the location on top of Schuss that has amazing views from the top of the hill along with the central location to the Shanty Creek resort offerings. The owners are also very flexible and accomodating which made the trip even better for our group. We are already looking forward to our return next year and also are working on a plan to rent for the skiing in the winter! Thanks again!!

Cozy chalet

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Byron chalet. The owners were nice and accommodating. The place was clean and cozy. It had plenty of room for us and our four teenagers for the weekend. The view into the woods from the family room was very pretty and the wood burning stove was nice to snuggle in front of in the evenings. The kitchen was well stocked and even had a crockpot which was really handy. The pathway to the hill was right across the street and was super convenient for the downhill skiers in our family. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home with easy ski in/ ski out access

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice vacation...this home has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The bunk beds are very sturdy and well made and the decor throughout is very nice! We arrived to a very clean home, which we really appreciated. The wood burning stove was easy to use. Overall, a vast improvement to properties we have rented in Bellaire in the past. We look forward to renting this property again!

Fun week

  • 4 of 5

All in all we had a great time. The location was great. We enjoyed the pools and hot tubs close by. The owners were very receptive to our needs even when we needed to change dates. We only had a couple challenges with the cabin this week. The main one was no A/C upstairs. When we would go to bed, the temp upstairs would be upper 80's even with attic fan and regular fans running. So with 3 couples, a baby and 2 puppies, we all tried to sleep downstairs on couches, air mattress and one bedroom. No one really slept bc everyone kept waking each other up. Long story short made for some grumpy people in the mornings. A couple people struggled with their allergies this week. A fire pit would be a great addition outside. Would come back just not in August.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments! We do not advertise Air Conditioning as a property amenity specifically because the A/C is not operable upstairs. The property is very shaded and generally not missed. We did have some unusually warm weather (mid-90s) the week you stayed. We'd love to have you back this winter and enjoy the property for all of the winter activities and scenic view the property has to offer. Our room-by-room heat control is sure to provide you the climate control you seek :-)

About Cortney John Byron

Lifelong vacationer at Schuss Mountain. Have both lived and worked on the property. One of the most special places to spend time with family and friends.

Cortney John Byron purchased this chalet in 2015

Why Cortney John Byron chose Bellaire

The access to the ski slopes is one of the best in all of Northern Michigan. This property is perfect for my young family to be able to ski in and out throughout the day. The hiking path is also right out the front door for adventures everyday in the off season.
