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.

Our third trip to the cottage and Al and Patty as usual were extremely accommodating and everything looked and worked great. The new deck is really nice! Always a great time and always such gracious hosts!

INCREDIBLE HOSPITALITY and AWESOME VIEW

  • 5 of 5

I Rented this house from Patty during the month of October. It wasn't your usually request for rental, I had some pretty needy demands. We were renting the house because we had a bass tournament on the lake, and needed a place to park 4 trucks with boats and trailers. Al and Patty didn't hesitate to help us. They were incredibly great to work with, and EXTREMELY accommodating to us needy fisherman. The rental was clean, exactly as described. We had 8 guys in the house and made it work thanks to Patty. The house had everything we needed and was an absolute joy to stay in. Anytime I'm near that area again my first call will be to patty . I may have forgot to mention the VIEW! it was amazing. Everything was great and the homeowners were excellent.

Great Cottage for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Patty was an exceptionally gracious host/owner! Checking in with us, answering questions, etc before and during our stay. Everything we needed was provided for a wonderful vacation. The view overlooking the lake was beautiful at all hours of the day and we enjoyed a lot of our time relaxing on the deck out front and behind the cottage. Be careful if someone is sleeping on the top bunk and you turn the ceiling fan on! Would highly recommend staying here! Our family is already thinking about when we can come back!

Owner's Response: UPDATE: The fan above the Bunk beds has been removed and replaced with a flat light. We have added a fan in the upper corner of the room. Also added room darkening curtains. See updated photo.

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.
