About Alison Gillespie

We purchased our Charlevoix home after years of enjoying Charlevoix and the surrounding areas. We grew up in Charlevoix and Horton Bay and continue to love spending time in the area. We love playing beach volleyball, snorkeling in Lake Michigan, swimming all the time, paddle boarding, kayaking, running wooded trails and boating with friends. The slow-paced, carefree Charlevoix lifestyle brings peace to our minds. We look forward to hearing about how Charlevoix renewed your soul and offered you a perfect Up North, Pure Michigan Vacation!!

Why Alison Gillespie chose Charlevoix

Location! Location! Location! We also love the historic charm of 3 Lakes Vacation Home nestled among other historic homes and mature trees. 3 Lakes is sandwiched between the excitement of Bridge Street and the hushed grounds of the Belvedere Club.

What makes this house unique

The location of our home is wonderful and truly unbeatable. We enjoy walking out the front door and walking into a coffee shop less than three minutes later. Our cozy home is full of character and functions best when full of friends and family who simply want to spend quality time together.

Always enjoy stay

  • 5 of 5

I go every year with a group of female relatives (8-10 of us) up to Charlevoix to the apple festival for a long weekend. We have tried different accommodations but this is the best we have stayed at. The location is excellent and they have made some really nice improvements.

Decided to head back to Charlevoix for some Fall colors and to relax after our son's wedding. We are SO HAPPY that we did. The house was warm and welcoming. Alison is excellent to work with. We truly have fallen in love with Charlevoix and this house. Felt like we were at home.

Located downtown Charlevoix, 0.5 miles from the City of Charlevoix waterfront East Park. Enjoy a grassy, waterfront lawn overlooking the Round Lake marina that is across the street from all the shops and restaurants Charlevoix has to offer. Music in the Park on Tuesdays and Thursdays floods the Pavilion Band Shell (or just listen from the deck at home!) Kids will enjoy the Splash Pad and adults will enjoy views of Round Lake. Again, this multifunctional area is less than a half mile from 3 Lakes Vacation Home!

Three PUBLIC beaches (Ferry Beach, Lake Michigan Beach and Depot Beach) are all close by ready for sunbathing, beach volleyball, paddle boarding, and swimming. Fisherman's Island State Park is only 7 miles away and offers all kinds of activities for the Nature Lover. Not to brag, but Lake Charlevoix was rated the 2nd best lake in the US by USA Today (Lake Tahoe was #1)!

Whether you're looking for a beach vacation, a culinary and shopping experience, a family getaway, a ski weekend or you want to do a little of everything, Charlevoix and surrounding Northern Michigan towns will offer an affordable retreat for you, family and/ or friends!
