About Helena Palazzola
Currently live downstate and hoping to make the move to the beautful Boyne City area in the future. We fell in love with this place because of the many year round local activities and festivals. We love skiing at Boyne mountain and boating on Lake Charlevoix.
Helena Palazzola purchased this House in 2012
Why Helena Palazzola chose Boyne City
We love the friendly people in Northern Michigan and the clean, safe environment. Everyone who comes to visit just seems to fall in love with this place and don't want to leave! Lake Charlevoix was recently voted one of the prettiest lakes in the country.
What makes this House unique

Ants and unresolved electrical issues
Downstairs sleeping area is noisy due to a/c unit, leaking drain pipe, etc
Direct tv didn’t have major channels so had to go to bar to watch the Michigan game
Ants- we live on a lake in the south so I know about them but I also know they can be controlled with pest service. They were all over the counter tops, food containers and bathrooms.
Most disturbing was on our first morning I plugged in the coffee pot and the outlet immediately sparked and started smoking. I called Helena and was told to move pot to another outlet and not use the defective one. No one came out to look at it or repair it while we were there. Hopefully, they fixed it before the next renter arrived. So unsafe.
The view of the lake and swimming area.
Helena was easy to work with, promptly answering all questions.
This quaint cottage met my family's every need. It was well equipped with everything we needed for a week of fun!
Cozy and cute
Very comfortable cottage and a beautiful view of the lake. Good restaurant close by and only a few miles from town. Cottage had everything we needed and highly recommend.
Very nice cottage, great location, excellent for families
Our family of four stayed at this cottage for a week this summer. It is a great location, on beautiful Lake Charlevoix. We spent our time swimming, grilling, making s'mores at the fire pit, playing cards at the large kitchen table, dining outside and relaxing. Despite having a small footprint, this nice, tidy cottage has a comfortable flow and tons of sleeping space. We could have easily slept 4 more people. It also has a lot of storage/closets/dressers, which we didn't really need but would definitely come in handy if you have a lot of stuff or visit in the cooler months where you'd have jackets and boots and things.
The location is very convenient for an Up North vacation. It's minutes from downtown Boyne City, about a half hour in one direction to Petoskey and the other direction to the city of Charlevoix and Lake Michigan, plus about an hour to Mackinac, Harbor Springs and Traverse City. It is a convenient location for families in that there is a grocery store close by as well. We also enjoyed shopping at the Farmers Market while we were there.
The one concern I had before arriving at the property was the road between the cottage's yard and the lake. Turns out it was not an issue at all. We crossed it multiple times a day to and from the lake from the backyard, and traffic was so light that we only rarely had to stop wait for cars to pass -- and half the time they'd stop for us first. We enjoyed the large yard as well. Great spot for playing badminton or frisbee or other backyard games.
Highly recommended --- we would definitely come again for another visit!
Great location, great view
The house was very nice with plenty of room for our family. Great location and we loved the very large yard. The lakefront area was perfect and in a nice neighborhood. We had a great time.
Relaxing experience with a lot of amenities
My wife and I had a great two night stay in the house. We got to swim the first day and decided to spend day 2 with the windows open enjoying the great temperature in the area (75 degrees, amazing compared the high 80's low 90's I was used to from the city). We had a great time in town as well, a farmer's market on Saturday and a city wide "Stroll the Streets" on Friday night.
Also the house included a tv in the basement with video games and a few beds. Plus some unexpected extras like games to be in played in the basement and some to play outside. For my wife and I this was a great experience and one we hope to have again by visiting again next year (or if I can convince my wife maybe a winter retreat for a few days. :)
This property is located in Advance just minutes from downtown Boyne City. Close to golfing, parks and excellent restaurants. The beach is located across the street and has 100 feet of beautiful frontage.
