About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Welcome to Two O' Five!!

We purchased this charming house in October 2013 after renting in Charlevoix for 16 years.

After alot of searching in Charlevoix and neighboring towns we decided Charlevoix was the right place for us.

With beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix within walking distance and only two blocks from downtown this charming house was an easy decision.

We have spent the last months making it our own the way we like to vacation and hopefully the way you will enjoy it.

Having been renters for so long ourselves we have tried to think of the things that we felt were missing and the things we really appreciated in the houses we have rented.

Two O' Five is in walking distance to most everything Charlevoix has to offer like dining, concerts in the park, movie theater, shopping and of course the beautiful beaches.

This house has been completely updated with new electrical, plumbing fixtures, light fixtures, hardwood floors, remodeled bathrooms, new carpet in basement with a home office and wireless printer if you absolutely have to work:( ,new stone tiled basement bathroom with heated floors and rain shower, all new mattresses and beds (two twin , two full ,one king and one full pull out sofa-bed, open kitchen with maple block island that seats four and a dining nook with four more seats, all new kitchen appliances , two flat screen smart tv's , wifi and cable TV , large laundry room in basement, Weber gas grill, large fenced in adjacent lot with flagstone patio,fire pit and plenty of room for games like badminton, flag football and more.

Charming spacious getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this charming home. There is plenty of space and every convenience you will need to enjoy your stay. While we were there for a winter getaway I can only imagine how incredible this spot is in the summer! Just wow!

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Two-O-Five is without a doubt the premier rental in Michigan! It was such a pleasure working with the owners, and the property is beautiful! Everything is very clean and organized, and the decor in the house makes it feel like your home away from home! We had more than enough space for seven people, and the multiple bathrooms/showers made mornings and evenings very easy and efficient. Great location so close to downtown Charlevoix & Round Lake/Lake Charlevoix, definitely within walking distance, we parked our cars and did not move them all weekend. We were all very sad to be leaving such an amazing place, and we have plans for return trips!

The owners did a wonderful job of labeling where items were throughout the house, and provided a very thoughtful packet of information on local eateries and attractions! Thank you so much for everything, we truly loved Two-O-Five!

Home Sweet Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Two-O-Five is one of the best rentals we've had in Michigan ever. We have been coming to vacation with family every summer for over 14 years. That said, these owners are attentive to detail, easy to work with, and have provisioned the home as if they themselves were staying. Nice layout, room for everyone, games and activities, the hammock, fire pit, generous yard, pleasing landscaping, and hey! look at that! the twinkle lights are on a timer? How cool is that? The home is in walking distance of the marina, downtown, the pier, the beach. The Charlevoix Community Pool is a clean, well-run facility. One of us is recovering from a Total Knee Replacement and made the short drive daily for fitness classes there. On our last night we treated ourselves to a fish fry- More than half of the lake perch came from nearby Nowland Lake, the walleye and just-in-case perch came from local John Cross Fish Market on Belvedere. This location is an easy starting point for sightseeing throughout the region: some of our group made it to Petosky, Traverse City and even Ludington this week. Thanks for your attention to detail, for this comfortable home, your charming and innovative use of space. We had a great week!!

This home is the cutest! Everything about screams beachy charm. The entire place was super clean! The beds were comfortable. The yard is perfect and spacious, with an awesome bon fire pit and picknick table. The owner is very friendly and easily accessible for any questions.

This sweet home named 2 O 5 is beachy sweet. Four comfortable clean bedrooms with 3 baths too to accommodate 4 teenagers along with the parents. A quick walk into town to enjoy Lake Charlevoix and all the shops! Would love to come again to 2 O 5 with a fire pit and all the essentials of home!!! Thanks for the great stay!!

One of the best things about Charlevoix's location is the proximity to Lake Michigan beaches with its wildness and to the calmer beaches of Lake Charlevoix for paddle boarding, wind surfing, kayaking, boating, sailing etc.

Downtown Charlevoix offers amazing dining, concerts in the park, movie theater,great shopping and an amazing library. Charlevoix is a short drive to other beautiful towns like Petosky, Boyne city, Harbor Springs,Traverse City and Mackinaw Island so there is always something to do even on a rainy day. Other nearby activities are zip lining, horseback riding , mountain biking and more. The Sleeping Bear dunes west of Traverse City is definitely worth a day trip. Charlevoix and all the nearby towns are always hosting special events like Art Fairs, various Festivals and concerts.
