About Al and Patty Walton

Patty was born and raised in Boyne City and was thrilled to be able to return to her hometown with her husband Al. They love all that this area has to offer year-round and call this their 'stay-cation'.

Al and Patty Walton purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Al and Patty Walton chose Lake Charlevoix

The view of Lake Charlevoix is stunning. You can start your day on the deck watching the sunrise and later pull out the awning if the sun gets too warm. Keep the lights low and enjoy the wonderful starry sky at night. This home is bright yet cozy and we have renovated it as if we were going to rent ourselves.

What makes this cottage unique

Golf, skiing, biking, fishing, boating, hiking, walking, swimming all right here. Festivals everyweekend , farmers market Wed and Sat and Boyne City 'Stroll the Streets' with music and events every Friday evening throughout the summer. Concerts, shopping, restaurants all within 1- 30miles. There is more to do than you will have time--- as you will want to also relax, read a book and take a nap.

THE COTTAGE WAS CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, HAD EVERYTHING WE COULD NEED. THE

GOOD TIME AND FOOD. WOULD ABSOLUTELY GO BACK. THANK YOU PATTY AND AL.

Excellent accommodations. Beautiful location, views, and water access. Great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was an excellent experience! The property is in an excellent condition. The owners have everything organized and available for you to have a perfect vacation. They have thought of everything. They are very attentive and accommodating. We cooked breakfast, lunch, and some dinners in, and all the kitchen tools we needed were available. Town is very close and the marina is just a a couple miles down the road if you have a boat. That was excellent too. We will be back back and for a longer vacation next time.

Wonderful Cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

If you want to wake up to a beautiful sunrise and be steps away from the best lake in Michigan, this is the place for you. The house was very comfortable and stocked with everything you could want for a great vacation. In addition to the comfortable beds, brand new laundry room and a new wrap-around deck, you have your own, private dock on the lake. We loved being in the lake so much, we hardly left the house. Patty and Al were gracious hosts and answered any questions we had. We hope to come back as soon as we can.

This location is located where you can enjoy the Lakeview and view of Boyne City right from the front deck. Summer you can see the 4th of July Fireworks and enjoy the rising sun. This bay stays calm when standard Northwest winds come up.

Fall - watch the changing colors and enjoy the many wonderful leaf peaking drives. Many days are warm and sunny. The Farmers Markets continue and the Apple and Harvest festivals are worth the trip.

Winter: Pure Winter white and perfect for a drive to Boyne Mountain for skiing or Young State Park for cross country. Mid Winter--- the Lake is frozen- so the ice fishing begins.
