Property description

Mountain Views Resort

NEW FEATURE: I just added a family membership to Boyne Rapids Adventure Golf. It's across the road from me and has 18 hole putt putt surrounded by 18 of the nicest manicured chip and putt. There are several waterfalls and a cave. Educational placards about history of logging here. There are two batting cages as well and you have unlimited complimentary use!

Located conveniently right on main road (M 75) between Boyne Mountain (3 miles)and less than 2 miles to center of Boyne City & harbor of Lake Charlevoix. Walk to Boyne Adventure Golf, BC Lanes with live music, BC Pizza, Quick Care Medical, Challenge Mountain Thrift store, Up North Party Store, Chase Bank

Less than 3 miles to Young's and Whiting State Parks each with beautiful beaches.

45 minutes to Mackinaw, 15 minutes to Petoskey, 25 to Charlevoix, hour to Traverse City , 30 to Gaylord

Boyne City has at least 4 city parks, very nice farmers market, and in the summer closes main street each Friday Night for 'STROLL THE STREETS' and has a party with several live musicians and groups and other performers from 6-9 or 10. Great way to catch the sunset into Lake Charlevoix. Another great way is Wednesday's concert in the park gazebo park.

The whole downtown area of Boyne city is one park after another along the shores of Lake Charlevoix and the Boyne River feeding into it snakes it way through the back side of main street into the lake.

I have 9 kayaks, 3 6 footers made just for children, and there are several rivers to choose from in the area. The put in for the Boyne River is less than a mile away and I pick you up where it feeds into Lake Charlevoix in downtown Boyne City.

You can also walk to three small fishing decks across the highway in Boyne Aire Biz Park. Hardly anyone knows about them. Nice hike down a trail to the river bank.

Property is nestled at the base of one of the tallest mountains in the area called 'Old Maids Nipple'. The view up the mountains through the exotic swaying fern grove is breathtaking from back of the house. Gardens everywhere and solar lights abound at night to create a fairy tale space day and night.

During ski season I have about 30 pairs of boots and 20 skis for just about every size except the really little ones...Gear also in case you need a face warmer , pair of bibs, helmet or googles.

I am a massage therapist, energy healer, and now studying to teach yoga. Special offers and access to my therapy room and library located on the property to all guests. You can schedule massage, Trinfinity 8 sessions, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy, Inversion Table, Chi generator, detox,specialty facials, among other treatment modalities. One day I hope to open a free pathway through the chakras to enlightenment traversing my mountain to the top.

Please call me about availability, I don't mind the call or inquiries and I may be able to help you find the perfect spot even if it isn't mine! I know the area well and am happy to help! many of my friends have different size and locations, i may be able to help!

Main house is surrounded by an enormous fenced with bushes and flowers spilling over and around everywhere. The house is wrapped in a deck and surrounded in bamboo fence for shade and privacy. Some like it best of all features here.

large (huge) french door refrigerator, Stove, outdoor gas or charcoal smoker and grill, toaster, George Foreman, crock pot, blender, Pots and pans, and plates and glasses.

Living rooms,
40' HD flat screen LED TV , Charter Cable, DVD, stereo with free fast WIFI internet.

master room has a king and the "kids" room has 3 sets of bunks with one having a double bottom. There is also a twin set to one end of the living room.

Large full bath with half bath on back porch

I do not have central air. FYI I have one window unit and will purchase a second but with the lake effect we have few hot days and they are followed by cool crisp nights!

Boyne city has won Main Street Michigan two years running for their outstanding community events and overall cute main street with so many activities going on you need a copy of local paper'The Graphic' on hand all the time. Lake Charlevoix of which we are the primary port town was voted by USA today as the most beautiful lake in the US or the world (will checklol) All 4 seasons there is something to do here. Summer beach fun, rivers galore, fast and pristine with rugged beauty. Fall color tours and hunting, winter skiing and winter sports, spring brings the morel mushroom hunters... There are concerts in the park gazebo free on Wednesdays with incredible sunset views of the lake. Every Friday night they close down main street and musician populate 6 blocks and the whole town comes out for 'Stroll the Streets'


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Spent my first year out of college as a Chemical engineer from MTU in Chicago working for Amoco chemicals. Corporate life in the big city didn't seem to fit so off to med school with the US Army to Med in a research position. I was retired after being injured and spending three years in Walter Reed Hospital. Tired of medical world I got an associates in interior design and went on the art show curcuit literally traveling and selling my arty creation around the world. When my son was ready to start school, I decided to settle down and got into the periphery of medicine, hired as a drug rep for Easai selling Aricept for Alzheimer's and Aciphex for GERD. Though the money was good I knew I had a calling for more meaningful approach to healing. Back to massage school,(I know, seems like I am always in school!) The staff nicknamed me Sparky for my abundance of both healing energy and energetic personality. They recommended me to move into energy medicine and I started the 3 levels of Reiki upon graduation. I am now a third level master teacher meaning I can teach and attune others to this form of healing. Ultimately I want to turn both houses and the therapy room to an all inclusive place where people can come for as long as they need for healing. I have 15 certifications in bodywork and have formed many working relationships with other gifted healers in the area for things outside of my specialties. That's besides the hiking trail traversing the mountain each time passing through a representative chakra area to promote awareness, balance, and healing. Each time I rent one of my homes the $$ go to improving property and preparing to make it a place of respite and healing on all levels for those suffering.

Why the Owner Chose Boyne City:
I LOVE BOYNE. The mountain, the spa, the city, the lakes, rivers, people. It is a 4 season wonderland here. My place is conveniently located between the ski hill and the beautiful Boyne City featuring magnificent Lake Charlevoix! Also you can walk across the street and enjoy Boyne Rapids Adventure Golf unlimited FREE!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy: Technically located in the business park there are no residents for miles around. The business park is across the road and mostly within their large cul-de-sac and very quiet. You feel you have the whole mountain to yourself and can make as much noise as you wish, only the deer and other forest critters will hear you! The back yard is literally nestled into the base of the steep side of the mountain, sunsets over the excavated area next door are spectacular. There is a hiking path to the top. Convenience: Right on the main road M75, Halfway between Boyne mountain skiing, spa, zipline and all the fun there ;and beautiful Boyne City cutest harbor town on beautiful Lake Charlevoix. We have won Main Street Michigan 2 years running for all the great community events and offerings. Also less than a quarter mile down the road is a BP Gas station liquor convenience store that is well stocked with many common items. BC Pizza right across the road from them. Directcare walk in medical service is directly across the road.
