Charlevoix cottage description

Welcome to 'Young at Heart', named in homage to local architect, Earl Young, who renovated the house, adding his distinctive features, and as our wish to all who stay here. Charming cottage features 4 bedrooms and two full baths. The home was completely remodeled in 2003 and includes a new kitchen with stainless appliances. Conveniently located one block from Lake Michigan Beach and two blocks from downtown Charlevoix. Walk to many of the Charlevoix attractions while many golf, skiing and recreational and cultural events are a short scenic drive away.
