Magnificent Lakefront Retreat set on private, heavily wooded 2 acres with 200 feet of frontage on "all sports" Lake 27.

Mackinac Island, Traverse City & Petoskey/Charlevoix are all less than 1 hour away.

The views of the lake are Gorgeous. The warm, clear water and beautiful, sandy beach make great swimming for all ages. Your family can enjoy using the Stand Up Paddleboards, Kayaks, Canoe, Trampoline Raft, etc. The lake side patio has electric and is set up with lounge chairs, picnic table and grill. The large fire pit is great for star viewing, smore making, and story telling.

Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

I have rented from VRBO numerous times and this house was one of the best appointed places to stay. Very clean, spacious and a responsive owner. I would highly recommend for all seasons but summer would be preferable with lake access and many toys. It is very close to Boyne Mountain so for those winter ski folks it would also be great. My friends of many years and I enjoyed spending time in this beautiful part of Michigan. (Thanks Joe for your patience in directing us to the "hidden drive"!!!) October 2017

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This group of 2 adults and 2 kids (10 & 13) had a great time playing on beach. We had 1 all day rain but inside activities offered pool table and games. The cleanliness of the home is A+ and the owner a great guy!

I would book here again in a heartbeat!

LOVE this house and the lake is very clean!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything is really nice! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you may need for cooking which is a big bonus for us. Nice patio for a cookout and bonfire. House was very clean. Couldn't ask for a better getaway house and vacation spot with town being only a couple mins away..

Spectacular Vacation Home! 5 STARS

  • 5 of 5

Our family really knows how to have a good time and Joe's vacation home was perfect! This is our 3rd year renting for a week long vacation and this home was the sweet spot. There are 9 of us from 3 families (my family with 12&14 year olds, my sister with 23&21 year olds, and my parents).

The place was spotless and items inside are top notch. The beds were comfortable, bathrooms spacious, plenty of chairs and areas to spread out. We appreciated the extra parking pad right next to the cottage - with 5 cars, no one was ever parked in, no getting someone to move their car in order for someone to leave. We appreciated the Wi-fi, the coolness of the house on warm days, the pool table, the secret kid play space under the stairs, the washer and dryer, the extra full size fridge on the lower level.

Others mention about the stairs, yes, there are stairs leading down to the lake, but they are gradual, not too steep and not as many as I've seen at other places. The lakefront is perfect with a patio for sunning and a nice sandy beach and a variety of beach chairs. We had a campfire in the pit most nights. We rented a pontoon from a nearby marina for the week and enjoyed sitting on that dockside. The shed is full of life vests in every size. The stand up paddle boards, little boats and kayaks were great!

The location was perfect secluded, yet golf and meijer were nearby, plenty of roads/trails to explore if you like to walk- we enjoyed the wild berries on the hikes we took.

I wish I could post photos here - as a tradition, we divide into family teams and have theme days. We had a "birthday party for all" one night with a piñata under the deck, pizzas and a 70th bday roast, one day we had beach theme with a concession stand style dinner and a sand castle building contest. The big hoorah was the 50th anniversary celebration where we had a surprise vow renewal ceremony on the dock followed by a steak dinner, a "reception" and dancing (still just 9 of us).

We enjoyed boating and tubing around the lake (didn’t have much luck fishing) and checking out the properties. We did break something (a stove knob), and we had it replaced immediately. Joe was so great to work with and has much family in the area and next door houses. I know Joe appreciated our cleanliness and integrity (respect, no pets, no smoking) and I hope he continues to get renters with the same values. We wouldnt hesitate to vacation here again!!

This is a wonderful property for both adults and children. The beautiful views, fire pit, lake and well managed property made for a perfect summer vacation. I would highly recommend and look forward to returning at a later date!
