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 Boyne City

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 plenty 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!

Fantastic property for any getaway

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property at the last minute for an unplanned ski training weekend for our son. The house was clean and perfectly appointed for us, our son and our daughter and her friend. Overall, I highly recommend this place anytime you are in Boyne - either skiing or for the weekend!

Exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at Rick and Dianne’s lovely property in the heart of Boyne City. We have stayed at many VRBO properties and this one is at the top of the list for cleanliness, tasteful decorating, and all the little extras you forget or don’t even think about. Directions for check-in and check-out were simple and communication was timely before our visit. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had just about every gadget and utensil you would need. Thank you for a great stay. We will definitely be back and will keep your Punta Cana property in mind.

Owner's Response: Sue, Thank you so much for the great comments. We strive to have our vacation home as welcoming as our own home here in Boyne City. Comments and suggestions from clients like yourselves help us to achieve our goal. We look forward to your next stay with us up north. We are heading for Punta Cana at the end of this month to check on our property there and spend time on the Sunny shores of the Caribbean.

Immaculate comfortable property, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this exceptionally clean and comfortable house 5 minutes from downtown Boyne City. The house had all details covered for an extended stay and we throughly enjoyed our stay, because all the details had already been covered. Will definitely reuse this property when we revisit Boyne in the future. Kudos to the Behling’s on this exquisite rental.

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)
