Property description

This charming cottage which sleeps 9-10 is situated two blocks off Lake Charlevoix in quaint, downtown Boyne City. This turn of the century home has been lovingly renovated and offers stunning architectural details. Perfect for two families or your extended family, there are two full kitchens and living areas so everyone has plenty of space. Three queen bedrooms plus a lower level bunk room with ping pong. There are two full baths. First floor queen includes twin bunkbeds with trundle. Second floor queen includes a toddler bed. Third floor queen occupies a private loft set off by french doors and overlooking the second floor vaulted living room. Ralph Lauren linens and down comforters throughout. You'll find plenty of quiet spots to read or nap. Four levels make up the house with three porches in all, two upper decks, front and back plus a covered porch off the front. The back deck adjoining the upper kitchen has a grill and outdoor dining. Also includes Internet.

Just two blocks away is Lake Charlevoix. Access to the City Marina is right at the end of our street with a giant play structure, covered picnic area with grills, sailing lessons, ball diamond and lots more.

A wonderful park is just a block away located on the River with a beautiful Gazebo. The Farmers Market resides here each Wednesday and Saturday morning. Concerts and other activities occupy the park throughout the summer. Young State Park is five miles up the road. The Mountain Grand Lodge boasts Avalanche Bay Waterpark, the largest in North America, along with many championship golf courses. The Soltice Spa is gorgeous. Also, great hiking and mountain biking trails.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: My husband and I and our three daughters have spent many special times at this cottage. We have always been skiers and our girls have developed into serious ski racers. We now spend every weekend here during the ski season and ski at Boyne Mountain when we are not traveling to nearby ski resorts for scheduled races.

Why the Owner Chose Boyne City, MI, USA:
We have always loved the close knit community and laid back character of Boyne City. The people are real and the town takes you back to a simpler time when family spent meals and evenings together enjoying one anothers company. We first owned a smaller cottage directly across the street and purchased this one when our family got too big for the one bathroom and two burner stove. We have loved having the two living spaces for friends and family. Everyone is comfortable because they have their own space and conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We have spent nearly every New Year's Eve at this cottage creating memories that will last forever. We live on Lake Erie in Ontario in the summer and are not able to enjoy Boyne City in the summer at it's best. That's why we are happy to share this special home with others who will hopefully fall in love with Boyne City like we have and want to return year after year to continue cherished family ties at a slower pace.
