Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Your place was wonderful and can't wait to come back. Very clean and tidy. The pictures do not do the grounds and lake justice, it is beautiful.

We kayaked the lake every morning with the loons and biked the roads of Charlevoix County. You must eat at Smoke on the Water in town.

Great cottage in a pristine lakefront setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cottage. Loved the lake view with lots of windows. Clean and so cute. Owner was friendly and quick to communicate. About a 5 min drive in to Charlevoix, past some gorgeous views. We enjoyed having a great U pick farm a mile down the road where we picked strawberries, kale, chard and herbs. Lovely sunset view from cottage. We will be back!

Adorable, quaint, and relaxing cottage on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a nice, relaxing long weekend, and that is exactly what we got. The cottage is super cute! Seems much bigger that it really is because of the vaulted ceilings. Everything was clean and comfortable. If you want to take time out from a busy life, this is the place! We enjoyed the patio out back and also the purple chairs by the water. My husband did some fishing off the dock. The lake is very peaceful and quiet. It takes about 10 minutes or so to get to Charlevoix. Had dinner on the water at The Landing in Ironton, which is only about an 8 minute drive. We had both a fire at night outside and a used the woodstove one night. Lyn was very easy to work with and responded promptly to any questions that I had. We will definitely be coming back when life gets hectic and we need some relaxation.

Cozy, beautiful, serene.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it! The cottage is amazingly well decorated, obviously much love went into that. That's just the start though. Everything is there for most all your needs, great local info, a full kitchen and silverware, clean functional bathroom, beautiful dining table, and a spacious, cozy living room with great views of the lake. We enjoyed the books, guides, etc also. The place was just what we wanted, peace and quiet. We enjoyed watching the loons and their babies on the lake, and the hummingbirds at the feeder. You're very close to Charlevoix and all the other communities which are very friendly and beautiful themselves. Would love to go back.

Great Getaway

The rental was great! Pictures were exact to cottage, very clean and well maintained. Owner was very helpful with all my questions. The kids loved the loft and the beach. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking in the Charlevoix area. Lots to do and see in the area.
