About Jennifer White, Owner

Growing up on the East Coast where a beach vacation meant fighting traffic jams, strong undertows and jellyfish, I've been delightfully surprised by the many hidden beaches and coves of Northern Michigan. There are so many places to choose from to watch the sunset, whether a quick walk down the street, sunset sail, or a remote stretch of sand all to yourself. Family and friends love visiting and taking the dogs for a swim and visiting the wonderful farm markets and galleries.

Jennifer White, Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Jennifer White, Owner chose Charlevoix

I have been vacationing in Charlevoix since 2002. I'm delighted to share my home with you and know you will love the peace, tranquility and friendliness that are part of life in this adorable town. You'll never lack for things to do, and my guidebook is ready to help you start creating your own adventures and memories! Come to get away from it all, bring your family, friends, and dog, and RELAX!

What makes this cottage unique

You can walk everywhere - 7 minutes to the beach or the many restaurants and shops downtown. There's a wonderful library and small movie theater just down the hill for those occasional rainy afternoons. Cyclists will enjoy the trail from Charlevoix to Petoskey and beyond that runs along Lake Michigan. Me, I just walk along the beaches letting the stress of city life melt away.

This is a great place to stay if wanting to be near Lake Mi or downtown area. The house was clean, smelled very nice and was PERFECT for the week. Will definitely be back. Great time, great yard, even nice neighbors.

Serendipity Cottage in Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

A charming, cheerful, clean and updated house, with lots of light and pretty landscaping, deck and picnic table, basement washer-dryer combo, and large screen TV/DVD/VCR. The neighbors are pleasant, Lake Michigan beach a visible five blocks away, and the village of Charlevoix five blocks. My two dogs enjoyed it, too. I will come again!

Perfect charming house for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this cute clean house, it had everything we needed and made our stay so easy and comfortable. We all slept great on the comfy beds and the info provided and WiFi made it easy for us to make plans. We were able to walk almost everywhere and made quite a few meals at the house. We have a 1 and 3 year old and found the house to be very kid friendly and the movies really helped on rainy days. Thanks for a wonderful time!
