About the owner: Charlevoix and Foster Boat Works are special places for us. We first came here in July 1994, shortly after we met. We immediately fell in love with Charlevoix. When we got married in October 1994, we came here for our honeymoon and for twenty two years we have been spending coming back several times a year. Now that we have our own condo here, we come with our family for the summers and every other chance we get. This place is special to us and holds many memories. It is our paradise. We are glad to be able to share it with you and hope that you can make some fond memories for yourselves.
Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix, MI, USA:
This is our paradise where we can . . . Stroll down a white sandy beach searching for unique Michigan rocks surrounded by the golden sun . . . Travel along on a country road and see the most spectacular fall foliage ever . . . Listen to the mesmerizing sound of sailboat riggings chiming and clear blue waters rolling onto shore . . . Enjoy shopping, dining, an art fair or outdoor concert or just watching the boats float by under the drawbridge . . . Ski down a hill with an unmatched view of Lake Michigan . . . Simply relax and be in a place where our only concern is washing the sand from our toes or planning our next adventure... where the perfect life becomes a reality… where we can find ourselves. . . and realize what life should really be about . . . We always imagined this: paradise. Paradise is a reality for us when we are at Foster Boat Works in Charlevoix, Michigan. It's our Paradise Up North.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Foster Boat Works is a friendly and quiet community located in the midst of all the joys and necessities of a vacation place in any season. We love that we can sit on our patio and enjoy the sunrise, sounds of the boat rigging clanging, and the water lapping up on shore. We enjoy getting out and exploring the nearby beaches and hiking and biking trails. We like to get our city-fix by visiting downtown shopping and dining area. The free arts and entertainment opportunities are endless and we take advantage of as many as we can. We are appreciative that the necessities of a grocery and general store are within walking distance. This place does not disappoint.
