Property description

A perfect private getaway, sleeps 5-7 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. Last spring we added a tiki bar with the best view on the lake! 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! 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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Boyne City, MI, USA:
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.
