  • Up North Meets "Urban" Fun

    "As two couples traveling together without our kids, this townhouse really appealed to us. Physically, it's very nice. What we also loved its location in downtown Charlevoix, within footsteps of restaurants and "nightlife." We loved the Tap Room next door (great acoustic guitar on Sunday night) for craft beers and casual dinner, or Quay across the street for a more refined dinner (try the mushroom salad and the whitefish provencal--both incredible!), or the bakery right across the street for home-baked goods and good coffee in the morning. The townhouse itself has a nice big deck and gas grill for dinner at home. In addition to Round Lake and Lake Charlevoix, Charlevoix itself is close to lots of great lakes for boaters (Torch Lake is a must--it's beautiful!), and less than an hour from Traverse City/Old Mission Peninsula wine country. Two golf courses very close by; Charlevoix more moderate while Belvedere challenging. We managed to do all of it in a week. Because you're so close to shops and restaurants, there's a good buzz of activity all around, loading and shipping happening in the back parking lot, etc. (This does not mar the gorgeous view from the deck.) If you're looking for absence of activity on a deserted lake, look elsewhere. If you like the feeling of being "downtown" (as downtown as Charlevoix can be for a town of less than 3,000 people) while also being immersed in the wonderful Up North culture with beautiful views and high-end accommodations, I would recommend. We hope to return next year!"

  • RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! YOU DIDN'T SPOIL OUR GOOD TIME

    "We can't thank you enough for our second visit to your wonderful home. Thank you for being so understanding of our special circumstances. The weather was great (lol lol) and we still had a good time and so did the kids. The house was spotless as always and everything we needed was right there. I love that little town, not much has changed since I was a little kid and hope it never does. Love the beach, and the bakery. Great walks morning and evening. We took advantage of the games in the house during bad weather and take out food from the local hot spots. Thanks again, and hope to see you next year. Donny and Marie and the Furballs"

  • Clean comfortable home, excellent location

    "This home was quite spacious -- more than adequate for our two families (9 people total, 5 kids under 8.) It included a well-stocked kitchen, and access to a Blu-ray player and nice TV for the couple of rainy days that we had. The grounds were beautiful -- lots of gorgeous flowers and decks. We enjoyed having access to the kayaks, and the lake was a good place to paddle. The lake is really quite shallow right by the shore, which is good for young children."

  • A beautiful way to get away for a while.

    "We fell in love with your vacation home from the pictures and hoped that they were a real depiction of the place. We were not disappointed. The home was lovely and spotless and had everything that you'd ever need to have a wonderful vacation.We had 3 girls who rode the bikes into town every day and played games in the four seasons room on rainy days. We we shopped in Alden and Bellaire and Charlevoix. We went to several good restaurants around the lake. We rented a boat and the girls went tubing and we even got to watch the Tigers on your big screen TV. Everyone was happy because there were so many options. We had all of our meals on the outside deck where we grilled and there was plenty of both sun and shade . Most days there was a nice breeze and, of course, the gorgeous lake to look at. We loved the park like landscaping and the all over beauty and serenity of the place. Everyone gave us a friendly wave as we drove in and out on the street. We ate at Dockside , the Torch Riviera, the Wild Onion , and The Alden Bar. We had giant ice cream cones at the little store in Alden. I also bought a couple of winning lotto tickets there. We replenished our spices from the Spice Mill and bought smoked fresh fish from the smokehouse in Bellaire. The entire week seemed almost magical to us and we would highly reommend it to our friends . We left reluctently with great memories and feeling very relaxed."
