Comfortable Relaxing Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! The location can't be beat - 2 minute walk to the beach and 5 min walk to all restaurants. This is a historic home with a lot of charm. The home was very comfortable, quiet, and relaxing which I definitely appreciated since I arrived to vacation moderately stressed out. We had a nice family dinner at the large dining room table and really enjoyed having breakfast on the front porch. We would stay here again, for sure.

Perfect Location and Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My family all stayed in this charming home and the accommodations were spot on. The location was perfect for walking to town, the beach or the infamous Mushroom Houses! There was plenty of sleeping space and the kitchen was perfect for us.

I would recommend this home to anyone!!

Charming Charlevoix Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for allowing us to use your beautiful home in downtown Charlevoix our family had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed the amenities your house provided .

The location was Fabulous, allowing my older children to walk into town and explore the beach .

The size of the house was an added plus even though we didn't need all the bedrooms it was nice to have the space to spread out and enjoy some individual quiet time when needed .

Our favorite amenity by far was the wonderful front porch, enjoying the Michigan breeze and even watching the rain was a delight 😊

The backyard was great for yard games and allowing the kids a place to hang out as well 👍🏻

Thanks again for your hospitality and allowing us to utilize your house,you truly have a gem in a wonderful city .

Excellent Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an fabulous time in Charlevoix at this home. The property sits just a quick 3 mininute walk from downtown and the beach. The home was clean with amazing charm. We loved the front porch. The owners were great to work with and very accommodating. We had plenty of room and enjoyed cooking as it has a large kitchen and dining area. We will definitely be coming back time and time again. We loved our stay and can't wait to come back!

Great Vacation for my family

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 3 children and I had an amazing time at this home. The property owners were very accommodating and informative of the activities available to us in this beautiful town of Charlevoix. We had plenty of room for our children to play. Had the best time relaxing and having appetizers on the large front porch. The home was easily walking distance to Michigan Beach and to the heart of Downtown Charlevoix. We will definitely be coming back time and time again. Thank you to the home owners for providing such a safe and comfortable place to stay. My whole family loved it. Can't wait to come back.

Lake Michigan

Our home is in an outstanding location -- 1 1/2 blocks from downtown Charlevoix and five doors from the Lake Michigan Beach.. We are a short walk to the city's new park w/ bandshell, marina, dancing fountains,, boat rental, shopping, restaurants, state of the art library, beaches, and more.

Charlevoix is an extremely beautiful and peaceful area of Michigan, surrounded by Lake Michigan, Lake Charlevoix and Round Lake. We have always enjoyed the beaches, recreational activities and the golf in the area.
