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.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Northwest

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.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic week at Hilltop cottage in Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

My family and I, (4 adults and 2 children) enjoyed a fantastic week at Hilltop cottage in Charlevoix in August. The cottage is full of charm and perfectly located within easy walking distance of Charlevoix. There is a wagon you can use at the cottage which you can walk into Charlevoix, take straight into the supermarket and do your food shopping, perfect. So, leave the car behind once you reach Charlevoix and enjoy all the charms Charlevoix has to offer. Hill Top cottage is a lovely place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed our week there.

Couldn't Have Been More Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been traveling to Charlevoix for over 40 years. When our daughter decided

she wanted a destination wedding, Charlevoix was the perfect choice for her. She was married on July 19, 2014 at Castle Farms. There were 190 guests that traveled from all over the United States, with some of them this being there first visit ever to Northern Michigan. What a pleasant surprise for them!

When deciding on the best option for where our family should stay for our wedding/vacation we decided that renting a home would be our best bet. From the moment we located the house on VRBO, the home owners were nothing but accommodating and helpful in making our decision very easy. Securing the house on VRBO was also extremely easy. When we arrived at the rental home a few days before the wedding/vacation we couldn't have wished for anything more. The house was exactly as is it was described in the information on VRBO and more! The home owner's instructions were very helpful and made us feel that their home was our home too. When

we had a couple of questions during our extended stay that needed to be answered, the home owners were readily available to help by email. Although we knew this before our arrival, the house could not have been in a more perfect location. There is easy access to

shopping, the beaches, great restaurants and last, but not least, some of the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. During our stay, we also took a couple of day trips to Harbor Springs and Mackinaw Island. As I stated earlier, we have been coming to Charlevoix for very long time and have stayed in many different locations over the years. However, from now on, I am very sure that we will never stay anywhere else and can't wait to come back!!

Charming Charleviox Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cozy and inviting feel of this home; location is also wonderful. I will definitely stay here again if I am able. In order to make the house perfect, I would suggest a handheld shower on the upstairs bath (since part of our stay was with another couple) and some way to cool the upstairs; 2 box fans to pull up the cool air or a portable air conditioner. Aside from these things everything was delightful!
