Property description

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 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; 130' from water's edge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: 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. We are living next door to the White Cottage that we purchased from family members in 2008.

Why the Owner Chose East Jordan, MI, USA:
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. .

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
