Downstairs on the renovated side, there is a large open kitchen with granite countertops, soft close cabinets, and a bar stool eating area. You can watch the water while enjoying your meals at the dining room table. There is a large TV room with a bay window and another bedroom off the kitchen.

Upstairs there is a beautiful tiled shower in the bathroom with a separate tub. A pull-out couch is in the bonus room at the top of the stairs, as well as a balcony with a spot light for playing bean bags in the large yard. The kids room has 4 bunk beds and can sleep 5 comfortably.

Another bedroom is opposite the kids room and there is also a laundry room upstairs. Walk down the hill to the gorgeous Lake Charlevoix where you can swim and soak up the sun. There is a boathouse with a refrigerator and bathroom making it convenient to stay by the water all day :)

About Shaina Allen

We have 2 children and enjoy vacationing in Boyne City for the summer.

Shaina Allen purchased this house in 2010

Why Shaina Allen chose Lake Charlevoix

Boyne City is such a quaint town with many summer festivals and wonderful winter skiing. We love that we have the option of swimming, boating, or downhill skiing while being closely located to Charlevoix, Petoskey, and other gorgeous Northern Michigan cities

What makes this house unique

We love snuggling around the stone fireplace in the winter and making Smores on the patio fireplace in the summer. It is incredibly relaxing to enjoy your cup of coffee in the morning on the Adirondack chairs while watching the waves come in.

Stunning Views and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place and location. Minutes away from quaint little Boyne City, fishing and shopping. The spacious home was very nice and comfortable beds. Lots of room for all 9 of us. The boat dock was an added bonus for my son's boat. The kids loved going to town on bikes and I got to go with them on the bike that is on the premises for use. Nice little bike for me (I'm the grandma). We didn't want to leave and we certainly would love to rent this property again. The owners are so easy to work with as well. Shaina is very prompt in returning phone calls, emails or text messages. She was awesome!! Please browse the photos but remember they don't do the place justice. It's so comfortable, beautiful and relaxing. The kitchen is spacious as well. We were outside most of the time because of the great views of the lake and the fire pit. Enjoy!!!

Great Vacation on beautiful Lake Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home in August 2016 along with two other families (12 total) and were very happy with the accommodations and waterfront. The home was clean and welcoming and the homeowner (Shaina) was extremely pleasant to work with. Location was very convenient, located very close to Boyne City, Charlevoix, Petosky with reasonable drives to Mackinaw, Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes. With three families, it would have been ideal to have three bathrooms with three separate showers, however everything worked out great in the end.

Wonderful experience on beautiful Lake Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property this past July (2016). There were 9 of us the the home accommodated us all quite comfortably. The beds are excellent, the layout of the house is great, and Lake Charlevoix is absolutely beautiful. The location of this property is perfect - less than a mile walk to Boyne City. This gave the teenagers access to the downtown activities which was a big plus. Charlevoix, Petosky, and Traverse City are all a short drive. I recommend this property for a great family get-away.

Beautiful house, great location, lots of space!

  • 5 of 5

My friends & I rented this property for New Years Eve (12/30-1/2) & we had a BLAST! The proximity of the house to Boyne Mountain is perfect (10 minute drive) and Boyne City is 3 minutes away. There was enough space for 13 adults to sleep and we were all extremely comfortable. It truly felt like a home away from home.

Thank you for your hospitality!
