This is a cozy 550 square foot two bedroom cottage getaway that was originally part of the 1950's Shoreline Motel nestled right on M66. It has beautiful views of the lake from inside or outside on the covered porch. One bedroom has 2 twin beds and the other bedroom has 1 queen size bed. The sofa is a hide-a-bed that has a queen size mattress. The cottage has 46 feet of private water frontage on Lake Charlevoix with a private shared dock. If you are able to bring your boat, there is a 6600 lb. lift for your use at the dock. There is also a great swim raft for jumping into the cool, clear waters of Lake Charlevoix. The cottage has a great covered front porch that is perfect for sipping coffee in the morning and lounging in the afternoon. There is a fire pit to enjoy the beautiful Northern Michigan evenings with the sounds of the lake and the clear starry sky.
The cottage is located between East Jordan and Charlevoix. East Jordan has some up and coming restaurants and a new coffee shop along with a park that includes tennis and basketball courts, baseball fields, and a playground. East Jordan also has a nice grocery store, restaurants, and of course summer ice cream. Charlevoix is a more bustling town with many great restaurants and shops.
There is a friendly marina one cottage to our north, Swan Valley Marina, where you can rent powerboats, pontoons, and fishing boats which is great feature since it is only steps away. By way of water you can explore the crystal clear lake and visit Boyne City, Charlevoix, East Jordan, and really anywhere in the Great Lakes through Round Lake and the channel that enters Lake Michigan. There are some great lakeside restaurants like The Landing-right next to the Ironton Ferry 6 miles to the north, the Fish House-on the main branch of the lake, and others you can dock at the local marinas.
We are very excited to share this cottage with you. We purchased the cottage in mid June 2017 and made some minor upgrades. The months of October, November, and December of 2018 are blocked to allow us to renovate the cottage. We are installing new windows and siding as well as updating the bathroom and kitchen areas. The cottage will also receive new flooring and ceiling. Check back in the winter of 2019 to see the updated pictures. We feel very blessed with the opportunity to own a cottage on Lake Charlevoix and are happy to share it with you. We hope that you love the Lake Charlevoix area as much as we do.
