Property description

Enjoy a great family vacation in Charlevoix by staying at The Bonnie Lodge! We are perfectly located less than one block from Lake Michigan Beach and one block from downtown Charlevoix. The Bonnie Lodge has 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, kitchen, spacious breakfast room, dining room, laundry room, and a front porch that views Lake Michigan's most beautiful sunsets in Charlevoix!

The Bonnie Lodge was built in 1897. Our parents purchased our summer home from an Aunt in 1975. Our Mother was born on Beaver Island and was raised in Charlevoix.

Make fun family memories in Charlevoix like we have for years! Enjoy the two beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan (Michigan Beach) and Lake Charlevoix (The Depot Beach). We enjoy spending the day at The Depot Beach playing volleyball, swimming, and barbecuing. Michigan Beach includes concessions and swimming along the Charlevoix Lighthouse. Also, steps away fish off the pier with no boat needed to fish. Drop a line and catch your small mouth bass. Take time to experience the best golfing in the Midwest! At Dunamaglas you will enjoy the peaceful scenery. Take the Ironton Ferry for 9 holes at Ye Nyne Olde Holles. In town take the kids to the oldest golf club in Michigan, The Charlevoix Golf Club (9 holes). Take a walk downtown Charlevoix for some shopping and dining. The Bistro I highly recommend for lunch or dinner from sushi to their lobster mac n cheese. Terry's is ideal for families. Plenty to choose from their menu but known for the best white fish in town! For fine dining I recommend The Grey Gables on the south end of town. Enjoy the piano player on weekends with your special someone.

Thanks ~ The Bonnie Lodge
