Tucked away from the world, down a small path you arrive at a place to make memories that will last a lifetime! You are welcomed by beautiful white stables and fencing before arriving at the original family home that gives many stories of the successful entrepreneur and avid outdoorsman - Everett Kircher. Situated on 30 acres and 1,500 feet of the most premier and private section on the Boyne River this beautiful estate comes with a setting that can’t be matched. No matter what season you are visiting there is something that tugs at your soul. Whether it’s having a cup of coffee starring out the large back patio windows overlooking the river covered with a blanket of snow or enjoying the well manicured grounds in the summer and roasting marshmallows by the large fire pit, there is something that will make you remember your wonderful vacation spent with friends and family.
The estate sleeps up to 25 guests (lodge and carriage house - lodge only in Winter months which adjust the occupancy down to 19) with plenty of areas to gather and enjoy good food and wine. Welcomed with a grand foyer, distinctive half bath and beautiful chandelier – you may find yourself standing there trying to take it all in upon your arrival.
As you enter the master suite on the far wing of the house, a large – classic space is lined with windows letting in plenty of light, which can be covered at the flip of a switch. The sitting area by the fireplace (for decoration) is a cozy spot to relax and have time to yourself or with your significant other. The master bath has been renovated with style and class with a pebbled shower floor to ceiling and large soaking tub. Coming out of the private master suite you arrive in the well-designed kitchen, which is begging for entertainment with its large weathered island. Complete with a sub-zero fridge and La Cornue range, which will please all who love to cook! Need more space? There is a second “prep” kitchen in the lower level with a Wolf range and Liebherr fridge, great for catering and overflow. The large dinning area complete with a wood-burning fireplace overlooking the property is ideal for a family gathering, especially over the holidays! There are two living areas in the home, one of which is the traditional living area with a large flat screen TV and the other is located off the kitchen and dinning area and as well as a step from the beautiful French doors to the to the large patio area complete with fire pits, seating and a grill. You will find the other two bedrooms on the opposite wing of the house with bright colors, fluffy pillows, unique chandeliers and another full and half bath. The final room, the bunkroom, is found up the staircase which expands into it’s own full bath with a large walk in shower.
Words can’t really express the charm, luxury and authenticity that this estate offers. It’s a dream destination, a cozy getaway and a tradition that a Northern Michigan family wants to share with you!
This estate is located minutes from Boyne Mountain, in fact when the resort is lighting up the ski you can catch it on the back patio. 15 minutes to Petoskey, 15 minutes to Boyne City and a hidden secret to anyone that was driving in the area.
