About Lara Phillip

I grew up spending as much time as I could at my family's vacation home on Lake Charlevoix. Summers for me were full of boating and swimming on Lake Charlevoix and taking longer day trips out on Lake Michigan; going to downtown Charlevoix and watching the boats pass under the drawbridge; watching the boat parade and fireworks during the Venetian Festival; and playing on the many sand beaches in the Charlevoix area. During the Fall, we would take walks or drives and admire the glorious Northern Michigan Fall color show. Winters were spent skiing, snowmobiling, sledding and ice skating. In Spring, we would take walks in the woods hunting for Morel mushrooms and admiring all the beautiful wild flowers or we would stroll in charming neighboring towns like Petoskey, Harbor Springs, and Boyne City. After meeting my husband while living in New York City, he too fell in love with Lake Charlevoix so much so that we packed up the family and moved to Michigan hoping to one day fulfill our dream of having a vacation home on Lake Charlevoix. I am thrilled to now be able to share this magical place with my own family and to be able to invite you to come and enjoy Lake Charlevoix and our beautiful home. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do and find that you will want to come back again and again.

Why Lara Phillip chose Lake Charlevoix

This lakefront site on the widest part of the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix is ideal. There are gorgeous unobstructed views of Lake Charlevoix from all over the house, deck and property. The South Arm of Lake Charlevoix is more sheltered from other parts of the lake, which is perfect for swimming, boating, water skiing and tubing. Lake Charlevoix is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world and provides direct boating access to Lake Michigan through the channel in downtown Charlevoix. The house is conveniently located between the towns of Charlevoix and East Jordan; is only three miles South of the Ironton Ferry (which provides easy access in season across Lake Charlevoix to Boyne City); and is only minutes away from Boyne Mountain for winter skiing.

It's got it all!!!

  • 5 of 5

This turned out to be one our our best vacations ever. This property is absolutely beautiful. The house is great and set up with everything that you would ever need. We brought numerous things out of habit, that we never took out of the vehicle. The cabana and all the amenities for the lake were perfect. We enjoyed the laid back quiet town of Charlevoix and all of the restaurants that Lara recommended. 8 out of 8 of our crew wants to come back to Rabbit Hollow!

Better than we remembered

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a second summer at Rabbit Hollow and it was better than we remembered it to be! The house is perfect, with all the amenities you could desire. The location was ideal for boating and water sports, or just lounging in the cabana by the water. Overall, we had a wonderful time and hope to come back again!

Delightful lake escape

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious, especially the master suite and common areas. The kitchen is particularly well equipped. There are multiple comfortable sleeping areas. The waterside area has a marvelous cabana and beach, fire pits, and dock. The south arm of Lake Charlevoix is great for water sports and it's a short drive to Charlevoix.

Our amazing week at Rabbit Hallow

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from a week long stay at Rabbit Hallow with two other families and had the most wonderful experience. The listing/pictures were very accurate and the house exceeded our expectations. The property is beautiful and extremely well maintained. There is every possible amenity you could need which made our trip easy, fun, and relaxing. We had 6 small kids and 6 adults and there was more then enough room and things to do for everyone. In our week stay we only left the house a handful of times because we enjoyed being on the property so much. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked almost every meal at the house. The bedrooms were extremely spacious and comfortable. The beach and pier were great for swimming, fishing, and use with a rented wave runner. The owners were not only very helpful ahead of time with answering any questions we had in planning for the trip, but we happened to run into them on our arrival and got a tour of the property. They were wonderful to work with and we look forward to renting from them again.

The town of Charlevoix was very charming with quaint shops and restaurants. The location of the house was also great for seeing some of Northern Michigans other sites. We took day trips to Mackinac Island and Sleeping Bear Dunes. The location was great for water sports and we would definitely recommend calling ahead to rent boats/wave runners if you don't have one to bring. All three families agreed this was by far our best rental stay yet and we would definitely recommend it to others looking for a great vacation.

The perfect Up North Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for a better place to bring a big family together in Charlevoix for a vacation. The amenties are first class, the place was spotless and the decor truly makes you feel at home and comfortable. The open floor plan makes big gatherings very eay to manage. We love the big kitchen table for eating or playing cards. Very functional house all around. Kids have so much to do in the cool and warm weather from the swing set, to hanging out at the beach to making a fire in the evening and ending the night with a movie on the flat screen curled up on the comfy couches...the options are endless.

The owners are wonderful hosts and very accomodating to our needs.

I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone and would stay again during my future visits to Charlevoix.
