About Rick and Dianne Behling

High School classmates, born and raised in Boyne City. After successful careers outside of Michigan, we returned to retire and enjoy the beauty and friendliness of a "Main Street" community. We have enjoyed owning and managing rental properties since 2000 and are proud to call Boyne City our home.

Rick and Dianne Behling purchased this house in 2016

Why Rick and Dianne Behling chose Lake Charlevoix

We bought this property to share with others our love of Boyne City and all it has to offer.

What makes this house unique

This home is an easy 10 min stroll to the center of town. it is located on a quiet dead end street with just ten homes. Our house sits on an oversized city lot that is two tiered and with lots of trees while the front receives lots of sun in the morning. There is also ample room for parking.

Very clean, nice neutral decor, well appointed, all necessary things were there. Even knives and frying pans that are usually so-so in rental property are in great condition. Wish we had more time. Thank you!

Wonderful - will stay again & highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is easy to find, at a dead-end street making it a quiet neighborhood, it was renovated and very well decorated. We have rented several houses and appreciated the little extras this one offered. Water & condiments in the refrigerator, a snack basket, coffee or tea, firewood for the fire-pit out back, makeup remover wipes, shampoo and conditioner, were among the extras we discovered. Boyne City is a wonderful town with a marina, beach, great restaurants, shopping and much more. As we were leaving, the owners were coming to install some new landscape materials. We would definitely stay again & have already recommended it to our friends. We are especially looking forward to the remodel that will add a second bathroom, which will only make this wonderful rental even more perfect.

Good Friends Annual Get Together

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get. Very nice home. Could live there. :) We will be back for sure. Probably one of the best places we have rented. Thanks for having us. (Of course, love Boyne City. Took a memory beach walk at Whiting Park and a ride on the Ironton Ferry)

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The place was awesome! So clean, nice appliances and pots and pans. I will definitely stay there again. Beds were comfortable and sheets were nice.

Rick and Diane had a lot of little extra's in the house. We were lucky enough to have nice weather and not use the fire pit.

Thank you so much.

Our Vacation Property is located only a mile from the city marina and boat launch, less than a mile from Avalanche Preserve with mountain biking, hiking and disc golf and ice skating and sledding in the winter. We are only a 2.5 mile drive to picturesque Young State Park( one of our favorite places to swim and relax) and the beautiful beach and waters of Lake Charlevoix. We are also only a 6 mile drive to Boyne Mountain Resort with world class Golf, I prefer the Monument Course with its signature holes)Skiing and Snowboarding, and Dining ( check out the weekly specials at Everetts)
