You will enjoy the new hardwood-type Pergo floors and new area rugs. This ideal vacation home has two bedrooms, plus a loft with 3 twin beds that the kids will love (our 3 kids do!!) There is a KING bed in one bedroom, a QUEEN bed in another bedroom, and THREE TWIN beds in the loft. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need, including a new dishwasher and a breakfast bar.
Everything is very well maintained and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!! Our family takes our vacations here, too, so our standards are high!
Water skiing , swimming, boating, sunbathing, sailing, tubing, windsurfing, and 'the best fishing spot on the lake' are just steps away from the front door.
THERE IS NOT A ROAD OR STREET BETWEEN THE HOUSE AND THE LAKE !!! THIS TRULY IS A LAKEFRONT HOME SITUATED AT THE WATER'S EDGE!! THE PRIVATE SANDY BEACH TRULY IS PRIVATE!
Bring your ski boat, or rent one of the ski boats, pontoon boats or jet skis available at the marina just 1 mile south of here.
There are so many fun ways to spend the days here, just to name a few... Jump into your boat and cruise north on Lake Charlevoix, passing the Ironton Ferry then heading into Round Lake, then continue on through the Pine River Channel out into Lake Michigan. From there you can explore many places along Lake Michigan such as Harbor Springs, Petoskey, Bay Harbor and Little Traverse Bay.
It is so much fun to park your boat at the courtesy docks to explore any of the three unique downtown areas on the lake - East Jordan, Boyne City and Charlevoix.
Enjoy fishing, where you will find 14 species of fish, including walleye, bluegill and yellow perch, just to name a few.
This area is known as Michigan's 'most beautiful area in the state for Fall colors', which you can enjoy while hiking, biking, walking or hunting.
If you enjoy snow skiing, Boyne Mountain is just 15 minutes from our door! Also in the winter you can enjoy snowmobiling on the many miles of well-groomed trails.
Bikers, hiker, runners and walkers will love the Little Traverse Wheelway path that is 29 miles long, and runs from Charlevoix all the way to Harbor Springs.
The pristine Jordan River is just 3 minutes away, where you can enjoy canoeing, kayaking and rafting.
There are so many choices of fun things to do around here, but truly you may never want to leave this great location, because the setting is so perfect.
Very important...there are NO ROADS between the house and the lake. You will NOT need to cross a road to get to the lake, and you will NOT be sitting on the side of a road when you are on the beach. This house truly has a private grass yard and private beach, situated away from busy roads.
Lake Charlevoix is known for its 'million dollar sunsets' and is nicknamed 'The Beautiful'. Once you've visited here, you'll completely understand why.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We live in Cincinnati, Ohio, but we try to spend as much time as we can on beautiful Lake Charlevoix!!
We enjoy everything lake-related:
sailing, skiing, tubing, fishing, swimming and just spending family time together at the lake.
Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix: We chose to buy a vacation home on Lake Charlevoix because we think it truly is the most beautiful lake we have ever been to!!
We love the south arm of the lake because it is so peaceful and calm, perfect for water skiing and tubing.
My husband grew up going on family vacations to various lakes in Michigan, and always dreamed of having a lake home to share with his own children.
We were on vacation on Lake Charlevoix a few years ago and found this charming log cabin and fell in love with it!! We had looked at so many homes listed as waterfront homes, only to find out that we had to cross a road to get to the water... and if we wanted to sit at the beach we would actually be sitting a few feet from a busy road where everyone driving by could clearly see us. When we saw this house we loved the location and privacy.
We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this House: We absolutely love the setting of our home - down by the water, tucked into the tall trees, with our own private beach - it just can't be beat!
We also love the convenience of our location because we can very easily get to any of the three downtown areas on the lake-either by car or boat! We bought this as a summer home, and were pleasantly surprised at how much we love being here in the Fall to enjoy the great weather and beautiful changing colors. In addition, we are just 15 minutes from Boyne Mountain, and we enjoy snow skiing and snowmobiling in the winter.
Most of all we treasure every moment relaxing together with our family!
