WINTER PARKING FOR TRAILERS AND VEHICLES:
There will be a parking area plowed in between the shed and the road for you to park your trailer or another vehicle. There will also be a spot plowed by the entrance to the Chalet for you to park your vehicle so you will not have to drive down the hill.
Arriving at the Lodge Lake Chalet, overlooking Lost Lake, head down the driveway with a noticeable incline. 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.
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) 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 Boyne Mountain, 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.

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.

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.
