Charlevoix cottage description

This perfect Lake Charlevoix Rental Cottage is located on the beautiful South Arm and will comfortably accommodate 6 people. It is direct waterfront with a sand beach and dock with boat lift.

This cottage is conveniently located just 10 minutes south of Charlevoix, Michigan on the west shore of Lake Charlevoix's South Arm. This extremely private getaway is nestled on three wooded acres. It is a direct waterfront property, and has a beautiful view of the lake. This property is yours alone to use and does not share the beach or the waterfront with any other homes.

Upon arrival, you will drive down the wooded driveway through the property to the cottage and lake beyond. There is plenty of room to park your car and boat trailer if necessary. Inside, the cottage is stocked with sheets, blankets, towels, kitchen cookware and all utensils. There is also a stacked washer & dryer for your convenience.

The cottage has a huge Family Room with a wood-burning fireplace, satellite TV, and Wi-Fi high speed internet service. There are three bedrooms and one bath. The sleeping configuration consists of one queen bed, one double bed, and two twins that are bunked in the third bedroom. There is also a queen sleeper sofa in the family room. The bathroom has one sink and a bathtub with a shower. Our deck is off of the family room and faces the lake. You can sit on the deck and enjoy a peaceful, private view of the lake.

At the lakefront you will find 180 feet of private waterfront with a sand beach area to play in, and a grassy area for throwing a baseball or frisbee. At the waterfront there are beach chairs, a second picnic table, a large fire-pit for campfires, and an aluminum fishing boat with oars. The water is shallow for quite a way out, which is good for small children. We also have a nice supply of sand toys for the kids.

One of the nicest features of our Lake Charlevoix Rental Cottage is the ability to dock your boat of up to 24' during your stay. The heavy duty shore station is yours to use and will hold your boat of up to 24' and keep it safe. The public launch in Ironton is just up the street. Our guests have appreciated all of the boating convenience that our cottage offers.

This is the place on Lake Charlevoix to be for all boating related water sports. This is also the place to be if you like to fish. The local bait shop in East Jordan usually recommends our spot on the lake. You can also fish off of our dock or use the aluminum boat.

At the waterfront, there is plenty of shade or sun, whatever your preference. The lake is shallow here and your children can wade into the water without you having to worry about a steep drop off, which is common in many areas on the lake. We have a sandy waterfront, combined with some wetlands on either side of the sand. This gives us so much privacy with our neighbors on either side, and an opportunity to enjoy nature and the beautiful water lily blooms on either side of the swimming area.

Don't forget about all of the fabulous GOLF COURSES in the area!! They are too numerous to mention, but if you are into GOLF and a golfer, you know how close they are. This would be a great rental cottage for a GOLF Getaway in May or September too.

For rainy days, we have tons of games and puzzles and a ping pong table in the garage. There is also a guest information book with directions to the many attractions in the area.

Good Morning Diane,

We had a great time at the cottage. Our son loved the sand and the sand toys were an added bonus. We brought some of our own, but he loved the ones you guys had there. As of right now we are thinking we will come back next year around the same time of year since it was so nice. This is the perfect vacation to get away with a toddler. Next year he will be 4 and will probably be more interested in the water too.

We will pass onto others the information about your place as well. I think alot of people would be interested in a vacation like this. So much nicer than a small hotel room.

Hope you have a great Tuesday.

-Victoria


Hi Diane,

We're back home, and we had a wonderful time in Charlevoix, what a great town! I see what you mean about Venetian Week now, downtown was all a-buzz! And what a gorgeous lake, we went to Swan Marina and rented a pontoon for the day, and were amazed by the beautiful homes! We enjoyed all the great restaurants! Also took road trips to Petoskey and Traverse Bay area. And were were quite amused by the Ironton pulley
ferry!

Your cottage was great - and very clean when we arrived I might add. I trust you'll find we left it in good shape for you, we tried to treat it as our own place.

That's about it - thanks!

Patty & Ed

                          About the owner: This cottage is halfway up the South Arm on the west side of the lake. The picture is of our son in the cove just off of our dock. Wakeboarding, waterskiing, tubing, jetskiing, and fishing is what he enjoys. This is the perfect location on the South Arm!

                          Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix:
                          We really enjoy the calm waters of the South Arm for waterskiing and wakeboarding. The west side of the South Arm enjoys a very calm shoreline since most of the wind comes from the west. This part of the lake is great for fishing too. We also really like the quick 10 minute trip into Charlevoix.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We really enjoy the privacy that we have here. We have a huge waterfront area to ourselves. It is so relaxing and peaceful. The campfires are great here and so is the stargazing. This is the best place to unwind from the stress of downstate! Fishing is awesome too! If you are into adventure boating, you can get anywhere from here. One of our favorites is to cruise north through the South Arm. Pass the historic Ironton Ferry and head northwest through the lake and into Charlevoix's Round Lake Harbor. From there, take the Pine River channel into Lake Michigan. Head north to explore Little Traverse Bay and the towns of Bay Harbor, Petoskey and Harbor Springs. Click on the link to send an email directly to me.
