Outside there is a large composite deck, comfortable outdoor furniture, large gas grill, and private dock.

Historic Boyne City is a quaint little town on the southeast end of Lake Charlevoix. It features restaurants to suit even the most discriminating palates, local bars with summertime rooftop entertainment, unique shops and many local events such as the popular farmer's market, Friday night 'Stroll the Streets' (June thru Labor Day) and free Wednesday 'Evening in the Gazebo' concerts. In addition, summer in Boyne City means cycling , jogging, all forms of water sports (boating, fishing, jet-skiing, kayaking, swimming,etc.), hiking, mountain-biking, zip-lining at Boyne Mountain, and lots of golf. There are over 40 championship golf courses within an hour drive.

Fall brings not only great golf and spectacular color tours, but also the Fall Harvest Festival.

The winter season in Boyne City means lots of snow and related activities. There is skiing at nearby Boyne Mountain. In addition, Boyne Highlands and Nub's Knob are about 30 minutes away. Snowmobilers have room to run full tilt on nearby trails. Kids and grown-ups alike will love the sledding and skating at Avalanche Mountain Park. Fishermen can, of course, cut a hole in the lake and try to catch a nice Walleye dinner.

Finally, for over 50 years springtime has brought the mid-May National Morel Mushroom Festival, and a beautful reawakening of local trees and flowers.

Boyne City is located in the heart of the best part of Northern Michigan and allows visitors to enjoy not only it's local attractions but is close to destinations such as Charlevoix, Traverse City, Pestoskey, Harbor Springs and even a day trip to Mackinac Island.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We grew up in Livonia, and have been vacationing in Northern Michigan since we married 35 years ago. We finally decided that owning our own place was something that appealed to us and began looking in the fall of 2012. We hadn't planned on looking at condos or townhomes, and in fact, looked at only one--this one.

Why the Owner Chose Boyne City:
Lake Charlevoix, the proximity to Boyne City, the golf, the skiing, and the fact that it is in the heart of the best part of 'Up North' made this property too good to pass up. We are busy putting our personal touches on the home as we enjoy everything ablout it.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Unlike many of the vacation condos in northern Michigan, our home is not part of a big development with shared amenities, no guarantee of water views and the other issues inherent with such complexes. Enjoy more privacy and your own beach and dock.
