About Carrie

What makes this house unique

This house feels like a cabin in the woods with its Chalet style nestled under the canopy of trees. But it also has the privilege of being lakefront on one of Michigan's most beautiful lakes. The south arm of Lake Charlevoix enables boaters to ski, tube, swim, float your way to Lake Michigan or to the larger part of Lake Charlevoix or the Chain of Lakes. Inside the home it feels quaint and cozy with views from the lake from all levels. The wood beams and cabin theme add to the vacation feel while including all the amenities of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great Cottage! So comfortable! Loved everything about teh cottage! Lake was beautiful and we had PERFECT weather! Went to Murrays just about every night to watch the Tigers games. Found the best quilt shop in Charlevoix. Loved Fisherman's Island State Park. Took side trips everyday. Enjoyed the deck, dock and those cute green canvas chairs on teh middle deck. Thank you!

great cottage, beautiful place!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home because we had a Wedding at Castle Farm's in Charlevoix. It was perfect for my family of five adults. With all the wedding plans we didn't get time to use all that they have to offer. I would have loved to spent time boating, fishing and having a camp fire to name a few. The owner was also kind to answer all my questions and very understanding. Treat them well and they will treat you well! Thanks for renting me your home!

Awesome Northern Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE northern Michigan and had the pleasure of enjoying Dan & Carrie's fabulous place in East Jordan! The house is nicely laid out, clean and well-stocked with anything you could need. It has a great deck area and gorgeous view of the lake! We took our boat and appreciated using the dock (and found a lovely sand bar right near Ironton). This awesome 'treehouse' is a perfect get-away for any family, couple or adults looking for a peaceful vacation in beautiful northern Michigan. You will also love working with Carrie & Dan! They are the best!

Fabulous Weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Cabin! It was close to the water to fish off the dock. We went to both beaches in East Jordan and Elm Pointe and our kids loved swimming there. Charlevoix was a short drive where we enjoyed dinner, shops and watching the boats. The cabin was clean and spacious. Our kids loved exploring in the loft. It had a fully equipped kitchen and grill to cook on. The nature around was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the boats go by, drinking our morning cofffee. We would highly reccomend this place! Great owners!!
