              Year Purchased: 2004

              About: My favorite thing to do is to relax with family and friends. This place lets me invite all of my friends and family members, that I love most, to come and get together once again. It's a great place to connect to my family, after having so much time apart. I work hard and when I am off from work, I want to have the option of playing hard or relaxing. With so many different activities here, I am finding new things to do every day. I am able to play games or go out in the towns during the day, and relax on the beautiful beach at night. This place is my heaven.

              Why Charlevoix:
              My cousin has a house on this beach and I have visited with his family for years. After coming there time and time again, a house down the beach from him became available. I grabbed it immediately as these homes do not become available often. It is a lovely place, miles of beach to walk on, quiet, secluded yet close to everything. When I want to get away, there is where I come.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              My property is just down the road from a natural preserve. There are wonderful places to bike and hike. I love to wake up and see deer, wild turkey, eagles, swans and owls right outside my door. The beach is right at my door. I can easily go into Charlevoix to shop, go see a movie or eat a great meal. In the other direction I love going into Elk Rapids and having some ice cream or shop for antiques.
