Boyne City cottage description

Mountain Views Resort
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.

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

45 minutes to Mackinaw, 15 minutes to Petoskey, 20 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 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.

Free unlimited access to Boyne Rapids Adventure Golf right across the road. There is an 18 hole chip and putt wrapped around it with two speeds of batting as well. Check out the facebook page. Very nice value for families, especially moms, safe to send for a little quiet time of your own lol!

I have 7 kayaks and there are several rivers to choose from in the area. I will help you with porting, the put in for the Boyne River is less than a mile away and I pick you up where it feeds Lake Charlevoix in downtown Boyne City. There are 7 river tubes with back supports for just floating and playing at the beach, life jackets, air mattress and just about everything else for fun in the sun!

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.

Cottage has Fire pit and grill area complete with new 10x12 screen house and lawn furniture. Very private and cozy, sunset over the side of mountain beautiful for fire in the pit and marshmallows (firewood and smores provided .

large (huge) french door refrigerator, glass Jenn Aire cook top, microwave, convection oven, outdoor gas or charcoal smoker and grill, toaster, George Foreman, crock pot, blender, Pots and pans, and plates and glasses. There are also spices, olive oil, a welcome fruit bowl, coffee and breakfast items like oatmeal and brown sugar to start your day right...ketchup, mustard, syrup, hot chocolate, coffee, tea, marshmallows and many other condiments to use if you like!

Queen in master bedroom and 2 sets of bunks in second bedroom. All linens top quality new Egyptian cotton at least 400 count.Your comfort is job 1 to me! The leather couch also folds down to very comfortably sleep 1 or 2 more.

I will plan, port, and guide you on any of our awesome waterways here for your own private group float. There are several to chose from and kayaking is one of my passions. I have a couple of car top carriers if you just want to go down to the lake on your own. I also have a small assortment of fishing poles...don't ask me though as I know nothing about fishing...there is a dam walking distant where I often see many gathered.

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.

          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. I purchased this sprawling resort with two houses,the therapy room, and 3 out buildings in April of 2010 with the home buyers tax credit. I had not realized how much work would be needed to get both houses and therapy room up to snuff for guests. :) Finally 3 summers later, EVERYTHING has been resurfaced and 1000's of perennials, shrubs and trees landscaped to give it a park like setting. This summer main house got a bamboo lined screening and awning for it's massive overly sunny deck. Is there ever an end to the projects? Currently I'm working on a basement apartment so I can also rent out the main house. I excavated a basement walkout and LOVE it.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The privacy: Technically located in the business park there are no residents for miles around. The business park is actress 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. Boyne Rapids Adventure Golf is also right across the road. We have a membership that allows all guest unlimited putt putt, batting cages, and 18 hole 3 par FREE1
