As we all know, Cooperatives are formed for many uses; agricultural, retail, grocery, and of course some of the most beautiful properties in the world. They come in all shapes and sizes; high rise buildings, senior communities, town home communities, and much more.

Tailor Made Property Services, Inc. AMO has the privilege of introducing another “if not the only, one of a few” cooperatives that operates in a variety of ways:
• Individual Chalet ownership
• Standard Cooperative with assessments for common areas And Vacation Rental Property!

The majority of these Chalets, located on beautiful Lake Michigan are rented as vacation rentals for supplemental income for the owners. We were truly blessed to have been chosen as the new managing agent of this property January 1st, 2008. But that’s not the reason for this article.

We think everyone should know about this wonderful property
before you plan your next vacation or event!

Chalet on the Lake Cooperative in Stevensville, Michigan (exit 22 right off I-94, approximately two hours from Detroit and one and one half hours from Chicago) is a duplex a-frame cooperative development having 102 units within fifty one buildings. Have we mentioned yet that it sits along the shores of Lake Michigan? Oh yeah, and let’s mention again that they are operating a rental program that is open year round for people to come and spend a weekend, a week, a month or more. Chalet sits along the shores of Lake Michigan and only minutes away from golf courses, winery’s, a casino only 20 miles away that opened in May of 2007 and is getting rave reviews called Four Wind Casino, less than two miles from Downtown St. Joseph that offers quaint shopping and some great restaurants, and much, much more.

The property offers a private beach, two swimming pools, and a pond that you can fish from, volleyball and basketball and tennis courts, playground, bicycle rentals, horseshoes and shuffleboard. Each suite comes with a fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining area, two bedrooms with double beds and bunk beds in each room with all bed linen and kitchen items furnished.

We cannot think of a better way for “cooperative members”, their families and friends to look at a new kind of vacation on 36 acres where you can tailor your time to suit your style. You can reach The Chalet on the Lake at 269-465-6365 or
Isn’t the Cooperative enterprise the must unique business in the world?
Did we mention it was on the shores of Lake Michigan?
