  • Wonderful vacation home for weekend with family!

    "We had a wonderful stay at this home for a long weekend for a family wedding. The house has a great layout ideal for entertaining, visiting and perfect for groups. The bedrooms were large and there were plenty of bathrooms. It was a short walk to downtown Charlevoix and in a great location. A perfect house for our weekend with multiple families (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins) all under one roof! The new renovations to the home were very well done!"

  • Perfect Family Vacation Spot

    "First let me say that Dean and Melissa made planning our rental a breeze. So organized and we knew just what to expect when we got there. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and it was lovely. Plenty of kitchen seating. Our family included three generations. The grandkids played in the water all day. It's sandy and they could jump off the raft and dock. We had fires every night, we put together puzzles when it rained and took bike rides into town. There are golf courses nearby and the little ones enjoyed fishing with Grandpa. The older kids took their jeep to a local off road track. Thanks Dean and Melissa, we had a great summer vacation!"

  • Beautiful Property with Nice Home and Lots of Amenities

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Boardman Retreat. The property is beautiful and expansive; the river and woods are breathtaking while the rest of the property has well-maintained lawns, pretty flowers and plenty of room to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The home itself is very clean, roomy and has many amenities such as a large, flat screen TV, Wii for the kids, comfortable beds, newer towels and bedding and ample seating and kitchen. Some of the issues we have had with other MI properties we rented such as inadequate bathrooms, lack of cleanliness, slow drains or not enough towels are not the case at the Boardman. The bathrooms are clean, have great water pressure and the showers drain well while the dining area and family room had plenty of seating for our family. The kitchen has a dishwasher, double sink, plenty of utensils and place settings and all that you would expect from a premium property. We especially enjoyed eating most of our meals on the large deck off the kitchen that has plenty of seating and large shade umbrellas to get out of the sun when we wanted. We took full use of the hot tub off the master bedroom as well. We spent time each evening in the screened in porch and had coffee each morning on the banks of the river. The feeling of seclusion was invigorating and wonderful and a needed change from our big city living. We would not have considered this property if it was not pet-friendly and our 25 lb., Shih Tzu miz loved the property as much as we did! Overall, we would definitely consider the Boardman Retreat for our next visit to Traverse City and would highly recommend this lovely property for those looking to get away."

  • Amazing Cabin with an Amazing Trip

    "What an amazing place! The cabin was so beautiful and the beach was wonderful and warm. The cabin was close enough to the water to make it an easy trip if we forgot something in the house and the dock sections in the water were perfect for laying out and relaxing while the kids were in the water swimming and having a great time. During the day, my family spent the entire time in the water while nights were spent on the beach by the campfire. There was also a shed with so many great and fun water toys that all the kids loved! Overall this was a very fun and relaxed trip, and my whole family decided we would definitaly go back again!"
