Property description

Come to Abide, and enjoy our uniquely crafted 'Mushroom House' nestled in the midst of Charlevoix the Beautiful.

Come to Abide and relax in this fairy tale-like setting, conveniently located within walking distance of the downtown drawbridge, Round Lake, East Park, and public beach, with lighthouse.

Come to Abide, where the farmhouse sink, wrought iron bed, and stone fireplace will remind you of a place long, long ago.

Come to Abide, and sit outside with a book in one of our red Adirondac chairs, while breathing in the flower-scented lake air.

Come to Abide.

Keywords: This charming stone cottage with thatched cedar roof is located directly across the street from Lake Michigan, and is just 3 short blocks from down town. Walk to the public beach, with lighthouse, and watch the boats go by. Watch the drawbridge go up, while the sun rises and sets across beautiful Lake Michigan.

Why Charlevoix, MI, USA:
My family has been coming to Charlevoix the Beautiful since the early 1900's. Purchasing Abide was a dream come true. I am happy that I can share my dream with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I love the peace of this little village, nesteled between Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. I love to ride my bike to the lake and go swimming early in the morning when no one else is around. Most evenings, my family and I watch the sunset together, while swimming, flying kites, playing football, building sand castles, or just simply abiding.
