A charming home, well located, fully equipped and large.

  • 5 of 5

This is a home, fully furnished and equipped, not just a house, and we enjoyed our time here. It is not on the lake, but is just a short, pretty walk to lake or town.

The back porch and swing were great places to relax, and the quiet, tree-shaded residential street it is on is pleasant and neighborly. The kitchen is great for cooking, and the beds are comfy with good clean sheets. The basement, which has the laundry room and an extra bed and sittting area, is just slightly musty, but the owners have a dehumidifier running and this did not bother us at all.

We especially loved sitting by the gas fireplace in the great room at night and catching up with family in the area. The extended family had several places rented in the area, and this house was where everyone gathered up - the clear favorite!

Nice home in quiet, wooded setting, but close to town. Just what we were looking for.

  • 4 of 5

The A-line roof and dormer peaks make for an interesting interior design. Loved all the wood on walls and ceiling, and the beautiful decorations. The spiral staircase down to the lower level family/bedroom and laundry room was fun! Living room and dining room had plenty of seating for us, and the kitchen was well stocked (dishes, pots and pans). It was delightful watching the deer wander through the woods out back and through the neighbor's yard across the street. Our only issue was that our group contained an elderly person who could not easily get in and out of the tub/shower in the main floor bathroom due to the high sides - it was not a problem for other members of our group.

A great time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time in Charlevoix. The house was comfortable and well equipped. There were four adults, two 13 year olds, and two 17 year olds. We were able to walk to the beaches and into town. Some of us enjoyed biking as well. A good time was had by us all. Kay

Spent a week with my family here and was quite comfortable with 4 adults and 3 kids. Nice quiet location and pleasant walk to Lake Michigan. Enjoyed searching for rocks with grandsons! Perfect base for visiting surrounding areas.
