Cottage, 3 Bedrooms (2 with Lake view) + 1 sofa/bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)
Enjoy the solitude of your own private cottage, tucked in the north woods on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix, just four miles north of East Jordan. Offering 100' of sugar sand beach (one of the very best on Lake Charlevoix), enjoy morning coffee on the beach, swimming and boating during the day and evening sunsets beside a private beach fire. Surrounded by white pines, white cedars, and white birches, the 1950's remodeled white cottage offers a quiet retreat for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of northern Michigan. The kid-friendly beach has a gradual slope for lots of wading, water play and swimming. There is also a dock and buoy for tying up a boat or personal water craft. A 14 acre woods with a stream offers room for hiking directly behind the cottage. The cottage is 70' from the sandy beach; 100' from water's edge.
Since VRBO/Homeaway can't handle our pricing to your advantage, let me explain:
Our standard pricing of $900 per week is for 5 or fewer adults (kids, no charge). If 6 or more adults add $50 per night to the weekly rate. More than 8 total people (adults and kids), add $50/night.

About Bob Pursel or Sherry Pursel
We are a retired couple who have lived here on Lake Charlevoix since 2005. In 2003 we removed the old family cottage built in 1913 by Sherry's Grandfather and built what is now our year round home. Our home is next door to the White Cottage that we purchased from family members in 2008.
Bob Pursel or Sherry Pursel purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Bob Pursel or Sherry Pursel chose East Jordan
We live next door to this cottage and purchased it to provide a rental for family, friends and others. Now that we have this beautiful spot, with a beautiful 300 ' sandy beach, we have a decided it's too good not to share it with others. It's a great place for young children to build sand castles and swim with shallow water quite a ways out into the lake, plus there's a swing set. .
What makes this Cottage unique
There is a 14 acre hiking woods with a stream located across the narrow lane (Oneonta Beach Rd.) that leads to the property. The cottage property is a very private setting, with one of the nicest sandy beaches on Lake Charlevoix. There is woods on one side of the cottage as well as behind it. It's a great place for dogs, too. From the cottage it's a 5-minute drive to shopping.

Great Spot on Lake Charlevoix
I grew up spending my summers on the south arm of Lake Charlevoix and this cottage was the perfect spot for me to share that experience with my children. The cottage was well stocked, and the beds were comfortable. The beach is beautiful and perfect for young kids to play -- all sand and little to no rocks or stones. We look forward to staying here again soon!
Thank you, Vince and Nicole, for taking time to write such kind words. Your opinion means a lot to us. We enjoyed meeting you and your family and are looking forward to your return. Bob
Nice little rustic quiet cottage. Excellent hosts
Quiet peaceful place. Beautiful lake front property. Great walking trails. Our hosts were more than accommodating. The cottage had everything you could ask for. We will definitely return and would recommend it to everyone
Thank you, Eric, for your kind words. We work hard so that guests have a pleasant experience. Glad to know you will return in '18.
Very accomodating lodging on beautiful lake made a happy spot for our family
Our family with four small children and a large dog were delighted with our stay here! And the owners next door were very hospitable and happy to have us as their guests in their special lake cottage. Beds were comfortable, dogs are welcomed guests, many games and movies provided, kayaks and canoe ready, shed full of beach toys, firepit and plentiful seating on the beach, great water pressure and plumbing, quiet residential area, long and shallow lake entrance great for young children swimming, many windows and fans to welcome fresh breezes throughout cottage. Central location to Boyne City, Charlevoix, East Jordan, and Petosky. Many u-pick farms in the area. And not far from the "big lake" Michigan. This certainly is a special place in Northern Michigan! Many thanks to the owners for sharing this place with our family!
Thank you, Shalyn, for your kind words. We sure enjoyed having you here and it's great you are returning in 2017. Bob
Accommodating owners and dogs
Myself and three other people and my 2 dogs stayed here for a month. The owners and their dogs are very accommodating and saw to our every reasonable need and beyond. This was exactly the type of place that I would like to stay in on the beach in warmer months. The beach and dock were right outside the back door and all we had to do was walk out to the kayaks to go for an adventure. I would certainly come back again.
A Month Tucked Away in the Woods
The owners were super accommodating, extremely pleasant and kind beyond words. They freely shared their time, ears and thoughts. The dogs really loved the place and they even let us use a collar for their invisible fence. We caught dozens of fish right off the dock and trolled for pike in the neighboring coves. I highly recommend this cabin and it's wonderful owners.
2014 will be the 4th consecutive year we've spent a week at the White Cottage, so obviously we love it, and the owners are the best. One year our daughters & 5 grandchildren were with us. The last 2 years a sister & brother-in-law, who is somewhat disabled by MS, were with us. We bring our Sunfish sailboat & sail off the beach...some of the best sailing we've had anywhere. Everything said by the owners & previous reviewers is absolutely true. It's a rustic quiet hideout within minutes of fine dining & shopping. It's also a great base from which to explore a beautiful area ranked tops in the USA, from Mackinac Island & Sault St. Marie, Canada to Sleeping Bear Dunes Natl. Lakeshore & three of the Great Lakes.
There are some great towns/cities within 30 miles in which to shop and dine...Charleviox, Boyne City, East Jordan, Petoskey and Gaylord. Plus, there is a very nice indoor water park at Boyne Mountain, just 15 miles away. Nice tennis courts in East Jordan plus an excellent disc golf course 4 miles away in East Jordan. There are other disc golf courses in Boyne City and Charlevoix.
