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 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.

What makes this house unique

Nice cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Stay

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.

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.
