Why Susan Boyd chose Charlevoix
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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".

Cozy cottage near lake & town
This historic Earl Young “mushroom” house is like something out of Hobbiton! Across the street from the beach and a short walk into town, restaurants, etc. it is small - ideal for a couple - but has everything you need, including a beautiful native stone fireplace. The mattress on the bed was a little mushy for our taste - otherwise, we loved it!
We loved the house would love to stay again. Great sunsets from the lighthouse directly across the street, fun finding Petoskey stones, and Charlevoix was wonderful this time of year.
Awesome again the second stay
This was our second stay and it was great!
Abide (otherwise named as Snow White’s Cottage by my kids)
Adorable!! Great location, Close to skiing. We loved our stay and hope to return next year☺️
Unique, comfortable historical home.
We were in Charlevoix to attend a wedding at Castle Farms. Decided to make a long weekend. Absolutely loved our stay at Abide. Susan was quick with replies to questions; very accommodating. Abide is a beautiful home. It was comfortable and clean. Great location any time of year. Highly recommend staying here. Be sure to watch the Earl Young DVD by the Charlevoix Historical Society.
Cozy and comfortable
Loved it. What a beautiful place to spend a relaxing weekend.
Enjoy a Sunday service by the lake, cool off in the musical fountian by the harbor, or visit the fish pond in East Park. Walk downtown and shop for fresh fruits and vegtables at the Farmer's Market, and browse the arts and craft shows. Your children will love our local summer camp at Mt. McSauba.
