About Debbie Singer
Our family has been coming to Charlevoix for the past 40 years as campers and for the last 25 as home owners. We vacation year round and have enjoyed discovering all of the wonderful sites in Northern Michigan.
Debbie Singer purchased this House in 2006
Why Debbie Singer chose Charlevoix
Earl Young is the defining architect in this area. The opportunity to own one of his homes presented a wonderful vacation destination.
What makes this House unique
1 block from Lake Michigan Beach. 3 blocks from town. Park the car and forget it while on vacation. Watch the sunsets from the adrirondack chairs on the porch.

A vert well kept property. Everything you need for a great vacation in Charlevoix.
I do have a couple items that I feel need to be addressed.
1: The bolt on t he door lock needs to be adjusted so that it goes in.to to th e jam much easier. Very hard to unlock and lock the door.
2: I feel that the owner should supply the RED bags for trash. Went to the store to buy some and only sell in lots of 10 for $25.00. I believe most people would use 1-2 bags a weeks stay. We got a bay from family of ours that live there. With cleaning and service fees, this added cost is not acceptable.
Al in all this is one of the best places to stay in Charlevoix. Closes to the beach and if you known your way around town it is in a good location to be able avoid most of the traffic. Would recommend it to everyone who wants a nice vacation up north.

Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions. Red bags used to be sold one at a time. I will indeed supply them.
As for the lock I assume you are referring to the front door. That door has a mind of its own. We adddress it each season with little change. We have found pulling the door towards you and then unlocking works well. I will include that information In Our welcome.
cozy cottage, perfect location, can hardly wait to return
We are so glad we were able to share our home with you. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and welcome you back with open arms.
Very comfortable cottage with a beautiful kitchen and bath.
This Earl Young cottage is quiet and private, but Adirondack chairs in front invite conversation with walkers while enjoying coffee in the mornings. The kitchen and bath which are outfitted with highend appliances are not large, but were perfect for us. We do cook some meals--we prepared whitefish dinner for twelve on our rainy first night. It was perfect. The master bedroom is roomy and has plenty of closet space and the king size bed is great.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. We find the unique house is just right for a get away from the day to day craziness of our daily lives. We hope you will join us again.
Excellent summer getaway experience
We had a wonderful week at the Betide Cottage in Charlevoix. This is a beautiful home within very short walking distance of an excellent beach on Lake Michigan (with dramatic sunset views) and fine dining and shopping in the village. The Earl Young cottage is an impressive historical property located in a beautiful neighborhood. It was extremely well equipped, immaculately clean and well maintained, convenient, and comfortable. Charlevoix itself is a terrific location - right on beautiful Lake Michigan beaches and a calm inland lake - and the location provides convenient access for short day trips to Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes to the south (~60-90 minute drive) and the Mackinac area to the north (~60 minute drive). We would recommend this property in the highest possible terms. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed our home as much as we have over the last 10 years. We hope you will return for another stay in the future.
This Earl Young cottage is as the pictures show. It's quaint, small, recently updated inside, about a block from the sandy beach of Lake MI below and about a third of a mile from the main street. It has location! The interior has many amenities, looks like the owners leave much of their personal effects there. The kitchen is adequately supplied with dishes, appliances, etc. The leftover/remaining food items in the cupboards, frig and freezer were numerous. Not sure if these items are for use or are there for the owner. I simply moved the stuff aside, no worries. We very much enjoyed our stay, we would like to return again as we frequent the area to visit local family.
The house is indeed used by its owners. We leave all food stuff for our renters to enjoy. We look forward to your return visit and are glad you enjoyed our unique home.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Betide. As a former Michigander I had driven down Charlevoix's Park Avenue and admired Earl Young's handywork from the street. But it was delightful to call this place "home" for a week. And how fun seeing a parade people in cars snapping pictures of the house you're lucky enough to be staying in?!? The owner was easy to work with and the house was utterly charming.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It is important to us that while you are staying at Betide you feel at home just as we do. Our house is your house for your stay.
We look forward to your return visit.
Charlevoix has been a vacation spot for many years. The town offers good food, outdoor entertainment, art fairs and plenty of beach front activities. Outstanding golf courses are a short drive away. Enjoy walking the beachfront in search of Petoskey stones.
