About Owner/Property Manager

I grew up in Charlevoix, a true native, and my husband and I are excited to be able to share it with you.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this House in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Charlevoix

You don't know how good you had it until you move away. We have been fortunate enough to be able to capture that in this house and share it with you. This house has amazing light; it is like a breath of fresh air. A newly remodeled kitchen, freshly painted interior, with natural light that lends to that cottage feel.

What makes this House unique

Location, location, location. This property sits at the top of the hill on the northside; next door to Aaron's Windy Hill Bed 'n Breakfast (across the street from The Lodge). Park your car for the week and walk to everything. Lake Charlevoix, 2nd most beautiful lake in the USA; come see what it's all about!

                                                        Nice cottage in a great location

                                                        Carol C.

                                                        My family and I had a wonderful week here. The cottage is in a perfect location to walk into town or to nearby beaches. The owners thoughtfully provided every amenity needed including some extras for children which were much enjoyed. Also, there is a deep backyard which is perfect for picnics, grilling, or playing with children.

                                                        Charming cottage retreat

                                                        Barbara S.

                                                        Our extended family enjoyed our stay at Hilltop Cottage, loving it's short walk to downtown and the lake. The back yard and grill was well utilized and we especially treasured sitting on the front porch. The location also made for easy driving on our many day trips to other tourist sites in the area. The owners were wonderful to work with, quick to respond to questions.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        So glad you enjoyed your stay Barb! We loved having you and your family!

                                                        Family vacation week in Charlevoix

                                                        Gregory L.

                                                        We enjoyed our stay at the Hilltop Cottage. The home is cozy, comfortable, and quirky. The owners were very prompt with answers to my questions and thorough. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation/getaway.

                                                        Great Stay

                                                        Melissa Z.

                                                        Great place to stay - clean with lots of room. Great backyard for BBQ's and to let the kids play. Outside of the noise of town but easy walk to everything.

                                                        Great house in a terrific location!

                                                        Karol T.

                                                        We were attending a wedding at Castle Farms in July and decided to make a family vacation out of the trip. Charlevoix is a nice place to spend some time. There's a lot to do and see. The house was just as pictured and described. It was more than enough room for 7 of us. Having the sheets and towels included made packing for the trip so much easier.

                                                        The owner is very friendly, easy to get a hold of and seems to truly want you to have a fantastic time! Thanks for sharing your home with us!

                                                        Amazing location

                                                        mmcgraw17Highland Park, IL

                                                        We stayed a week in this charming house. The decor was charming, the beds were amazingly comfy, the kitchen has everything you need, and the location simply cannot be beat. We highly recommend it. Our only snag was that it took about a week to get the check-in info from the owners, who didn't understand that we wouldn't have access to email the day before we checked in. That said, other than that event, the owner was very responsible, helpful, and friendly.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.

                                                        Regarding the delay in receiving check-in information; we have a lockbox and for security reasons we do not send check-in information until a day or two before your arrival date.

                                                        Again, thank you so much for your review. We'd love to have you again.
