3rd bedroom needs attention

  • 2 of 5

The house wasn't bad, but when you rent a 3 BR house, you'd like to be able to use all three bedrooms. One of the bedrooms had a really bad musty smell, maybe even a mold issue. The other two bedrooms were fine. When I brought this to the attention of the owner, he wasn't very understanding. I had to fix the owner's shore station/boat lift upon arrival as well. I'd consider other properties that are probably better taken care of.

Owner's Response: The back bedroom had NO mold issue. Was recently completely redone in cedar and new furniture is also in place. We are sorry you had to fix our dock or shore station however we have a service that maintains it and we could have called them ourselves. The dock and shore station are seasonal docks and sometimes mother nature is not cooperative. Shore station is not included in rental but is negotiable. We have our own boat that has to be removed for you to use it. We do take great care to ensure all of our guests feel at home while on holiday.

Family Fun Time on Lake Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 adults and 3 kids spent last week in this wonderful cottage. Upon arrival we were very impressed by both the roominess and cleanliness of the cottage and grounds. It's obvious the owners know what it takes to create a relaxing, fun-filled week on the lake, by providing many toys, lounge chairs, boat hoist, wood for the fire, etc. The extra fridge in the laundry room was so handy to keep all our beverages in, reserving the kitchen fridge for food. The kitchen was well stocked, clean, with plenty of counter space. We all enjoyed the large dining table and game table in the same room as the couch so we could all be together without feeling on top of each other. The neighbors were all helpful and friendly, making us feel welcome. The owner Mike is very pleasant to work with. Thank you Voorhees View for making our week so wonderful!

Great spot on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better weather and a better spot on the lake. The cottage is much larger then appears in pictures. Our family of 5, 3 kids ages 10-16, had plenty of space for down time. The cottage is well laid out with great views of the lake from most of house. The house and kitchen were well supplied and very clean. The owner was easy to work with and even had full time residents nearby in case anything was needed.

If It Wasn't for the Lake!!

  • 1 of 5

We stayed there in 2014 in month of July. The house was dirty, smelled damp. Esp. In the far back bedroom with wood paneling. The Kitchen was the best room. It was clean and cozy like a cottage. The large couch in living room was uncomfortable and noticeably old.

The blue bathroom was dirty on arrival. The garbage can was still full from last renter and the neighbors/caretakers finally picked it up. They had been on vacation.

I've stayed on this lake many times and this property is by far not near the price they charge.

Lastly the dock was rickety and wobbly which is bad for children and elderly adults.

Owner's Response: We have no record of This person having rented from us (Either Lou or Staci C). If you have rented under a different name please contact us. We go through great effort to make sure the property is great condition for the renters. Also, it says you rented in July in your opening statement, but also state you rented in August. We have searched both months for record of your visit. Why did you wait a year to post a negative review?

Had a beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several lakefront homes/cottages, and this was truly our favorite! The house was clean and comfortable - nice furniture and new carpeting. Plenty of room for us and our 4 kids, but may have been a little crowded with 8 or more if you get a couple days of rain. Two TV's with movies and video games to kept the kids happy in the evenings and on rainy days - we didn't hear "I'm bored" once. The nearby nature trails allowed the older kids freedom to explore and have some time to themselves.

The house had everything we needed - beach toys for the younger kids, kitchen utensils and flatware, lawn chairs, and two refrigerators eliminated the need for repeated trips to the store. It's obvious that the owners put a lot of effort into making sure we had everything - right down to the beach towels and the spare LP tank for the grill.

The location was perfect - 15 minutes to either Charlevoix or Boyne City, and perfect distance for a day trip to Mackinac Island or Traverse city. The lake is big enough that we didn't hear the constant droning of jet-ski's typical of smaller lakes.

If you have one, definitely bring your boat! Shoppers' docks at Charlevoix, and public slips at Boyne City allowed us to do most everything we needed to do from the water, without the need to deal with peak season traffic and parking. Plus so many other things to see and do on the boat - Lake Michigan, Oyster Bay, waterfront dining, sunsets - you can spend the entire week on the water.

The neighbors were welcoming, friendly, and very helpful. On our day of departure we had to pack up and hurry off ahead of an approaching storm, so we never had a chance to thank them, but they truly made the difference.
