2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Home On Beautiful Lake Charlevoix
A perfect private getaway, sleeps 5-6 people, great for a family or 2 couples with kids. Our home has panoramic views from a large deck overlooking Lake Charlevoix and a charming covered porch with lots of comfortable seating. The large rooftop deck is just steps out the front door, with plenty of seating, and a tiki bar and palm tree! The view from the house, porch, and deck are unbelievable! Relax on your private sandy beach and have a bonfire in the fire pit. You can tie your boat to the mooring ball at the end of the dock or bring or rent kayaks to explore the lake. It is a five minute drive or bike ride to downtown Boyne City, a premier Main Street Community, where you can enjoy the many small town festivities, concerts, farmers market, restaurants, or Stroll the Streets on Friday nights. Drive 6 miles to Boyne Mountain resort and spa, with world class golf, water park, and skiing, or just 45 minutes to catch the ferry to Mackinaw Island for the day, or check out the historic and quaint Ironton Ferry, just 7 miles down the lake and a shortcut to the beautiful town of Charlevoix! This family cottage is complete with all the comforts and conveniences you will need, a well-stocked kitchen with everything required for cooking and dining as well as a gas grill and patio tables for barbecuing. There are 2 large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has a queen bed and a twin bed with a private half bath. There is a full bath between the 2 bedrooms with a large walk-in shower and lots of vanity space and storage. The living room has plenty of seating with amazing views of the lake, the dining table seats 6, and there is a sun/family room with an extra table and seating area, and a queen size sofa bed. The kitchen, dining room and sun room also have unbelievable views of Lake Charlevoix. There is a washer and drier and we provide plenty of linens and towels, and paper products to start you out. If you rent for ski season, keep your car warm and dry in our attached 2 car garage, with lots of room for skis, boots, and equipment. We are only 15 minutes from Boyne Mountain, and minutes away from several cross country ski trails. All you need are your clothes and food for a week of relaxation and fun, or a season of skiing!

About Barbara Ellwanger
We live and work in Boyne City year round, and moved here several years ago because we love the area & enjoy boating, golfing, and skiing. We actually met while skiing at Boyne, and were married at the top of Aspen Mountain 10 years ago. We only live 4 miles away, on the other side of the lake, so we are always available for any questions or information about the area. We love Boyne City and Lake Charlevoix and there is no place else on earth we would choose to live!
Barbara Ellwanger purchased this House in 2012
Why Barbara Ellwanger chose Boyne City
We purchased this house in Sept of 2012. Known as the 'pink house', it is a landmark for local boaters and fishermen, so we have decided to keep it's unique color. It was a well-loved and maintained home so we have only had minimal sprucing up, painting and decorating to do. As we are both do-it-yourselves, this has been a fun project that we both enjoy. We recently worked on some fun additions to the large deck, including a tiki bar and a palm tree! We would like this to be the kind of place we would pick ourselves for a vacation away from home.

Great property with an incredible Lake view
We enjoyed the house for the month of September. It was perfect for the two of us, plus company for a few days. All the common areas have a view of Lake Charlevoix plus the Tiki bar deck. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware. The linens are in good supply. The beds were very comfortable too. The front porch always catching the breeze from the lake! The location is perfect, as a few miles to Boyne City, and Charlevoix and Petosky have whatever you need if you don't find in BC. The restaurants and shops are very good in Boyne City, with very friendly folks. We enjoyed biking, trips to Mackinac, and the wine country. We highly recommend this house for rental. The owners are great to work with and respond to any needs quickly.
Beautiful view of Lake Charleviox from the living room to the outdoor deck and tiki hut. Like what our granddaughter said the first time she stepped in the house...wow,wow,wow! Barb is a real joy to work with the arrangements. Very pleased.
Very nicely maintained very clean cute house
House was amazing
Tracy & Brian Freeman
The pink house was the perfect getaway. It had beautiful views from the entire front of the house. Sitting on the porch and having coffee while taking in the view was a wonderful start to the day. The house had everything we needed to cook pretty much anything we wanted. It was very well stocked. For the nights we wanted to get out, we were only a short drive to boyne city or Walloon lake. Plus, we were able to take some longer trips to local breweries and even a day trip to traverse city. We had a spectacular and relaxing 10 days. The house was very comfortable and we were able to get out and the location was great. Highly recommend.
I spent 3 beautiful days at the pink house, saw spectacular fall colors from the top of Avalanche, enjoyed outstanding food at the local restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The house is comfortable and very well equipped in a great location. The only thing more welcoming than the pink house are the owners, Barb and George. There is so much to do in the area I may just need to come back!
Located on beautiful lake charlevoix, voted 2nd best lake in the US by USA today. Just minutes from boyne city's many activities, restaurants and shops, and 15 minutes to charlevoix.
