Can't wait to go back !

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed for 2 weeks at the Wendling house and was very pleased ! Its a very nice house

with a great view. I was able to launch our sailboat at the Dutchmans Bay boat launch which is only a mile or less from the dock. The sailing on the South Arm and Lake Charlevoix main is simply spectacular. Clear, deep water and great breezes added up to some fun times. The Wendling dock is very sturdy and the beach right next to it is like something from Florida. I had my 2 well behaved dogs with my wife and I and they enjoyed walks in the nature preserve right off of Bracey Road. I loved it and hope we get to come back next year. The Rifes

Cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home surrounded by beautiful trees with an amazing view of the water. We came when there was about 8 inches of snow, and left when it was all melted!! So we got to see this home in all it's coziness. The fireplace was amazing and we burned a lot of wood while watching snow fall. The king bed was sooooo comfortable, and the owners provided all the comforts of home including a thoughtful basket on arrival. Charlevoix is only about 25 min for quaint shopping. We can't wait to go back in the summer to enjoy the beautiful beach!!! This is the place for rest and relaxation!!
