About the Property

3 Bedrooms+Loft, 2 full Bathrooms+outdoor shower, (Sleeps 8) ON LAKE MICHIGAN

The home has 213 FEET OF LAKE MICHIGAN WATER FRONTAGE at the mouth of the Grand Traverse Bay. It overlooks the Leelanau Peninsula and the Fox Islands. At night you can see the light house at Leelanau State Park flickering in the distance. The home is located in the quaint village of Norwood, just 8 miles south of Charlevoix and 45 minutes north of Traverse City. You can get to Mackinac Island, a plethora of golf courses, fruit stands, wineries, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Castle Farms within an hours drive!

Just one flight of stairs and you are on the beach! Our 213 foot beach has sand/rocks and is private. The water is crystal blue and nature is at its best. The home is located on a secluded, dead end road which offers some of the finest views for casual walks and wildlife viewing. Bald eagles, loons, swans, and hawks are seen daily! There is a county park a half mile north which connects to Fisherman's Island State Park. There is a wooded lot (which we also own) north of the house which adds to your privacy and buffers your from neighbors. If you are a boater, you can drop in your boat at various launch sites in Lake Charlevoix, Torch Lake or 1/4 mile down the road at the Norwood Park (for Lake Michigan boating).

The home has three bedrooms, sleeping loft and finished basement. There is one oversized bathroom. One bedroom features a queen size bed facing Lake Michigan, second upstairs bedroom has another queen and a pack and play. The upstairs sleeping loft has a queen bed and 1 single bed. There is one queen sized bed in the basement bedroom and three single beds in the basement rec room. There is a solid pine picnic table and deck set, 4 Anti-Gravity Chairs, charcoal grill for outdoors and a fooseball table in the basement rec room. OUTDOOR HOT WATER SHOWER on the beach makes rinsing off from the beach (or taking a morning shower!) very convenient and unique! Numerous renters (and ourselves) have showered and seen the local bald eagles flying by for their morning meal. A peaceful, unbelieveable experience!

There are so many things to do closeby: shopping, boating, plenty of excellent golf courses, or just relax in the hammock and listen to the water lap up on shore! Come and enjoy northern Michigan at its finest.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a young family who loves Northern Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix, MI, USA:
We LOVE to spend time relaxing on the 'big lake' with family and friends. We have extensive family in the area and know it is the spot we want to be in when we retire. Nothing beats a sunset over Lake Michigan with your loved ones sitting beside you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have a gorgeous view of the lake including a wooded lot so you won't encounter many neighbors. We have made our home unique and comfortable by having a grill, solid pine patio furniture, outdoor beach shower, a flat screen TV with DIRECT TV and DVD library, finished basement, and a large renovated bathroom for our guests. The close proximity to town is nice but also great to be away from it too. Also the much needed WIFI for the tech savvy!
