Charlevoix cottage description

Large home with a private beach on Lake Charlevoix and very close to the town of Charlevoix. Unbeatable location! You can be in the town of Charlevoix within 5 minutes.

You can swim, boat, fish or lounge on the water during the day and still be very close to town to shop and eat! We have a short dock for sunbathing or swimming. It is fun, any time of the day, to watch the boating activity on Lake Charlevoix.

Our cottage faces southwest, so wait until you see the sunset from the living room, or the patio, or from the beach! Nothing is more relaxing than watching the sun set over the water.

There are great views from the upstairs master bedroom (with balcony) and beautiful views from the living room, dining room and kitchen too!

We have a well appointed kitchen with new stainless steel refrigerator, gas stove, microwave and a dishwasher. There is lots of nature light and as you stand at the sink, you have windows to enjoy both the view of the water and the view of the landscaping. The large downstairs bathroom has a bathtub. The upstairs bathroom is brand new. We gutted the old bathroom upstairs and created a beautiful new bathroom with double sinks, huge walk in shower and a walk-in closet.

Everything is very clean and well kept. It is a perfect situation for two couples. Each couple has their own large bedroom with private full bathroom. One bedroom has a queen and one bedroom has a king size bed. The bedroom with a queen also has a pull-out-queen couch. If needed, the couch in the living room is also a queen pull-out bed.

Charlevoix is a great vacation destination with incredible dining and wonderful downtown shopping. Lake Michigan is within minutes from the cottage-- you can walk out the pier(breakwater) or enjoy the beautiful Lake Michigan beach. Golf courses are plentiful or you can ride your bikes on the bike trail from Charlevoix to Bay Harbor to Petoskey and onto Harbor Springs, if you are really energetic.

You can also travel by car to Petoskey (15 minutes away), Bay Harbor (10 minutes), Boyne City (25 minutes away), Traverse City (60 minutes away) or all the wonderful vacation places in Michigan like Mackinac Island or the UP.

Our home is just north of downtown Charlevoix, on Raspberry Bay. We all have beautiful beaches along Raspberry Bay!

                                  About the owner: We live in Traverse City and own this home for both your use and ours. We have owned rental properties for years and this one is our favorite.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix:
                                  We loved being so close to town that you can pop in for a grocery store run or a nice dinner out...or a day of shopping. I love being so close to Charlevoix but still be at a quiet, private beach front home.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                                  Central location to all sort of places to explore, but our favorite benefit is the sunset view at the end of the day. What a great place to just sit on the patio and relax and watch the colors of the sunset on the water .
