150 feet of Lakefront property on Lake Michigan + 3 Bedroom, 3.0 bath cottage makes for a great place to spend a week or much of the summer--or fall--or spring. Close enough to Charlevoix to enjoy the 'city life' but far enough away that it is a true summer retreat. Guests are entranced with Lake Michigan from this contemporary and secluded lakeside home. Home is located in a birch and hemlock grove, the home looks out over Lake Michigan and south to Grand Traverse Bay. Guests can beachcomb and hunt for Petoskey or Charlevoix stones, swim or canoe on the lake. Others jog or walk the country lanes. From Charlevoix, travelers can take the ferry to explore Beaver Island (but why go? this place is nicer).
The property is architect designed and was built in phases with the most recent phase a master bedroom suite. The master bedroom is lovely with separate entrance, full sized bed, sliding doors to deck overlooking the lake and its own bath. A quiet and private spot, even if the kids and in laws are in the rooms next door.
Another bedroom has its own bathroom and is located at the other end of the house. This room has bunk beds and can sleep 4 people. It is quiet and light. It has an additional art and drawing room attached which looks out over the nearby woods. The drawing room also has a washer and dryer.
There is a quiet library/TV viewing nook off the living room with a DVD player, 42 inch plasma HDTV, and Roku box streaming high speed internet video interface. Also a wide selection of books with an emphasis on northern Michigan.
There is a large living room/dining room which is associated with a sitting area and which has cathedral ceilings and large glass windows and sliding doors which open to a large deck overlooking the lake with many chairs and tables for eating, sunbathing, reading, or watching the lake and sunsets. Outside, greenery including evergreens frame the lake view and provide shelter from excess breezes.
Off the living room is a full bath (shower) which has unique barnwood paneling, a real 'up north' experience.
The kitchen has the needed elements, is cozy and has a sink and work area which overlooks the lake. Yes, there is a dishwasher and a gas grille for BBQ (outside).
An ideal room for children is at the top of the spiral staircase which is the 3rd bedroom which has room for two in a full sized bed.
There is a full complement of kitchen applicances, dishes, etc to allow one to prepare gourment meals while looking out at the lake. Have your breakfast and meals overlooking the lake as well, either in the combined LR/DR or on the deck.

The NONSMOKING GreatLakeMichiganCottageChvx is near the Antrim Dells Golf Course which is an 18 hole facility with rolling terrain and great up north Michigan character, yet at reasonable prices. Less than a mile walk is a county park and the nearby Fisherman's Island State Park. While there is great privacy with the 150 feet of prime Lake Michigan frontage, a 10 minute car ride will reach Charlevoix which has shopping, many excellent restaurants and several grocery stores, in addition to the waterfront attractions. This cottage is the best of both worlds, privacy and quiet yet proximity to 'city life' . It is only a 45 minute drive to the Traverse City Airport so that jet setters can fly in, enjoy the 3rd coast of the US, and fly out. If you want a quiet week of rest and relaxation, the GreatLakeMichiganCottageCharlevoix is the place for you to recover. Or for the more energetic, to have a romantic week on the Lake, there is considerable privacy and a lovely master bedroom.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: My wife and I bought this place as a retreat and for possible retirement (at least in the summer). Since we are both still working we cannot be there as much as we would like and want to share this special property with the right renter. We purchased this property after many many trips to northern Michigan in which we had hoped it would be possible to buy. ..We finally did--and believe you will enjoy this spot.
Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix, MI, USA:
The property is located near the village of Norwood which is about 8 miles south of Charlevoix. This is an ideal location as it is near commercial air transport (Traverse City); relatively near a major highway, easy to reach from southern Michigan in 3 to 4 hrs (with a radar detector), quiet and beautiful, yet close enough to Charlevoix to make use of the city amenities with just a 10 minute drive. The location on a small bay on lake Michigan with some dark stones on the floor of the lake makes the water warmer than some other aeas.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sunsets, quiet, varying light off the lake, reading quietly on the deck listening to the wind in the trees, watching the birds, sleeping soundly with a breeze off the lake keeping temperatures comfortable, a quiet master suite with a door that locks so privacy can be maintained even if there are other guests--including a separate entrance. A huge deck on essentially the entire lake side (west) of the house. Opportunity to take hikes and walks and enjoy nature and continued lake views. Access to the internet at high speed if the need strikes you! Go play golf at Antrim Dells or many of several nearby courses. Go buy a home made pie at Friske's orchards, cherry is very good or some pastries. There are 2 nice 1 person Kayaks and a canoe for activities on the lake on calm days.
