About Michelle Gormas

We live in mid Michigan area with our four year old and two year old children. We spent years searching for the perfect vacation home in Northwestern Michigan area. Loving the City of Charlevoix and its convinient location, we purchased our condo 'Boat House' spring of 2013.

Michelle Gormas purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michelle Gormas chose Northwest

We were sold after stepping into the condo and seeing the breath taking views along with available boat slips out our front door, a heated pool, Ferry beach next door, short walking or boating distance to downtown. Also nicely located between Traverse City, Petoskey, Boyne City, Bay Harbor. Boyne highlands, Knobs knob, and Boyne mountain are within a 40 minute drive.

What makes this condo unique

Heated swimming pool, boat slips available for rent at Northwest Marina. Clubhouse with shower facilities and washer/dryers. Walking distance to town and only minutes to Petoskey, Harbor Springs or Boyne City. Over 15 championship golf courses within 25 miles of our condo.

Amazing view

The condo is great, spacious, comfortable amenities and a central location for day trips. e.g. Beaver Island and Cross Village/Tunnel of Trees.

Beautiful condo with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

My family of two adults and two young children recently stayed for a week. The location is fantastic with beautiful view of Lake Charlevoix with a private balcony.

The condo itself was in immaculate shape with all of the amenities necessary. The pool was nicely heated and clean, which was nice since the lake was still pretty cold. Space for grilling as well as a luandry center.

One nice surprise was the condo's cable package. Every channel you could imagine was available. Although not typically a big deal for us, the rain days where we were stuck inside gave us plenty of options to keep the kids entertained.

The only detail I could complain about was the bed size. It advertised one queen bed, but both beds appeared to be full size. A little tighter sleeping accommodations than what I am used to, but overall not a big deal.

Would absolutely stay here again!

Cute condo in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Condo was small but nicely decorated and in a great location. Equipped with everything you need including shampoo, lotions, etc. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the marina and Lake Charlevoix. Our only complaint was the noise from the window type A/C units and the refrigerator which ran constantly. Would definitely rent it again however.

Owner's Response: Laureen, thank you for your nice response and we are happy to hear you love our place as much as we do. Not only is the view spectacular but the location is perfect also. We try to make everyone's stay worry free as that is what we are looking for when we travel. We arrived shortly after you left and the fridge was unussually noisy as the 'cold' knob was turned all the way up. After adjusting the setting down the fridge noise disappeared. Please let us know when you are in the area, as we will be happy to host you again.

A great place to vacation with spectacular sun rises on Lake Charlevoix & sun sets on Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo is a very comfortable place to stay. The pictures and description accurately represent the way it is. The unit is very clean and all the basic supplies were well stocked. Whether using this location as a home base for travel to other places or staying in the Charlevoix area you will not be disappointed. We hope to be able to return to this unit soon.
