VERY Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (6 adults 4 teenagers) totally enjoyed this spacious VERY comfortable home. We rented a pontoon boat and paddle boards to take full advantage of beautiful Lake Charlevoix- cruising to restaurants on 3 sides of the lake. We loved s’mores at the fire pit by the lake. Two patios with shade, and plenty of sun on the large dock. Large lawn for volleyball and croquet. A/C was great for the warm days which warmed up the lake. Most refrigerator space ever. Very nice golf courses nearby.

Beautiful winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous weekend with friends at this cozy cottage buried in snow on Lake Charleviox. The kitchen was well equipped for us to make our meals, and the whole cottage was clean and comfortable. Located close to Boyne Mountain, we were able to take in tubing adventures as well.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with a bunch of other couples and couldn't have asked more for a superb place to relax together. The cottage and setting allowed us to have lots of fun and fellowship. The cottage itself was spacious, comfortable and very clean. I would recommend this beautiful place to anyone and any family size who is looking for a home away from home.
