Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

When turning into the driveway of the Andrews home, you slowly drive from reality into a dream lakeside vacation getaway. Having 300 acres to explore and your own private 40-acre lake was a once in a lifetime experience. The house is the epitome of rustic luxury and immediately makes you feel at home. It was the most relaxing family vacation we ever had. We highly recommend it.

Excellent house for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideal for our annual family reunion. We spent much time in the living room, kitchen and adjoining porch overlooking the lake. Very peaceful, yet close to Charlevoix. Enough activities (boating, tennis, hiking) on the property to keep everyone occupied.

Best Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home and location for a family gathering. The home was extremely well done with a great floor plan. Plenty of room on all floors with good size bedrooms and bathrooms. The private lake and large acreage make for a peaceful and relaxing retreat. When you want go to town, Charlevoix is just a short drive away. When considering Northern Michigan for a vacation, this luxury log home should be on your short list!

Five a Weeks in a Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We spent five amazing weeks at the Andrews beautiful home. Words alone, can't describe the home or peaceful surroundings. We left the hustle and bustle of Dallas, to find cooler weather and peace. We found much at Lake Moblo. Our days consisted of morning coffee on the large deck overlooking the beautiful wooded lot, lake and wild life. We took hikes on the extensive trails covering over one mile of trails, biked, played tennis, boated and played basketball. Every night ended where we started our days overlooking the lake drinking fine wine, only to be capped each evening with a fire roaring on the deck. We went into Charlevoix often, and ventured to Bay Harbor several times. We rented a boat a few times and took our various guests on Lake Charlevoix, ranked the second most beautiful lake in the US only behind Lake Tahoe. The house offers everything you could ask for, with two masters bedrooms on the top floor, two on the main and two with extra beds and bunks on the ground floor. We had tough time leaving this piece of heaven and we highly recommend this home to others. Thank you Margolyn and Charles.

A Treasure in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a 2 weeks stay at the Andrew's Log Cabin, and all of us agreed that it was a perfect place for a vacation. Their home is so well appointed and spacious, but homey, too. Although we were a crowd, there was ample space for all of us; with room to spare.

The appeal was not only indoors, but outdoors as well. Manicured lawns, groves of birch trees, meadows, lots of hiking trails and a peaceful lake with fish....and loons!.

Although Charlevoix , Petoskey and Lake Michigan were only a short distance away, there were many activities available right on the premises; enough for each one of us(ages 6-81). We all agreed that it was an ideal week, and that we would recommend it to our friends in a heartbeat!

Thank you to the Andrews for sharing their is a treasure!
