Lots of room for one large or two moderate sized families!! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is basically two cabins in one - separate areas with multiple places to get away from one another or get a few good family games together. Location center to Charlevoix, close to Boyne and Petoskey and an easy one day up and back to the fantastic Mackinaw Island. AC in living room - nights get cool enough you really don't need AC in the sleeping areas in the summer. Would love to try it out in the winter for ski season...

A clean home nestled in the woods and surrounded by wildlife.

  • 3 of 5

The home was a rustic getaway, surrounded by pine trees. Animal life was plenty. We had a friendly Robin wake us every morning by pecking at the same windows. We saw two deer and turkeys out the back window. There was plenty of beds for up to 9 people.

Perfect cottage near Boyne City for 2 families!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the Hemingway Cottage - wish we could have stayed longer! It's very close to Boyne City where we rented a pontoon for the day. The location is great - close to Boyne City, Charlevoix & Petosky!

The cottage has many separate areas for families so everyone is able to enjoy their own space or be together! We loved the fire pit in the back for making s'mores. There were lots of board games available to play. We would definitely rent again if we come back to the area.
