Boyne City cottage description

LOCATION, LOCATION! The best view of Lake Charlevoix from the swing of this charming Cottage's porch on Front Street's 'Golden Mile' OR out the door and across the street to the Marina where you've rented a slip OR 3 blocks walk to this Premier Main Street community's small town festivities, concerts, farmer's market, restaurants OR a 4 mile drive to Boyne Mountain resort and spa OR a few minutes more to many quaint cities or harbor towns all the way up to just a 45 minute drive to catch the Ferry to Mackinac Island for the day!
This family cottage is complete with all the comforts and conveniences you could dream of while still packed with loads of cottage charm. The adults will find the two main floor master suites (queen beds) a nice respite after a full day of activities and the kids or an extra family will beg to return every year when they climb the winding stairway to the 3rd bedroom / sleeping loft- appropriately named the 'orphanage' with it's 1 full bed, SIX twins, and one youth / crib, the whole room painted in Boyne City FUN!
Just kick back and watch the sun sink into the lake night after night from the front porch or grill, have s'mores with the family in the private patio/garden in the fenced back yard, after a big day of anything you choose to do from sports to splash year-round fun in this small town, simple-life atmosphere ...have your cake AND eat it too...in this family memory making cottage on the lake!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: We have 6 kids, 3 of them adopted, two are former grandsons and one of them is Ugandan. We are missionaries helping orphans and widows (grannies) to survive and thrive in Uganda East Africa. When we're not in Boyne City, we're in Jinja Town overlooking the Nile River!

              Why the Owner Chose Boyne City:
              We are born and raised Michiganders from Southwest Michigan....when we began our second phase of life in the mission fields of Africa...we sold out of the busy down-state life to own a piece of the UP-NORTH dream...heaven IS a little closer in a house by the LAKE :)

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              We are a walk or a short drive away from anything our heart desires YEAR 'round!...who could ask for anything more?
