About Jon Hess

I am a realtor from Texas that loves Charlevoix. I have been coming to Charlevoix to vacation since I was a child and am now happy to own a home there. Beechwoods Cottage has many beautiful paintings, furniture and artistic pieces that were in my family for many years. I hope you will enjoy your visit!

Jon Hess purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Jon Hess chose Charlevoix

Beechwoods Cottage is very spacious and great for large groups, whether it be a family vacation, wedding or reunion. The living room is a nice quiet place to read or visit, while the family room has a vaulted ceiling overlooking the woods and yard. A large flat screen TV is in the Family Room (cable hookup). Master and lower Bedroom have Flat Screen TV's

The newly renovated gourmet kitchen opens up to the dining area with an antique table that seats 8. The dining room in total can seat up to 13 people at two tables and the kitchen bar area.

The house is fully stocked with everything you need to cook for a group and serve a lovely meal.

The lower level has two bedrooms and a new full bath with an alcove room (10 x 10) that includes a twin bed and seating area. This area would be great for kids to play without disturbing the people upstairs.

The spacious master bedroom has a newly renovated connecting bath (with deep tub and separate shower) and has a lounging chair, TV and large closet.

-- Main floor: Large living room; Kitchen with dining area that connects to the family room. One half bath off hallway. Off the kitchen is a laundry room with new washer and dryer and a door that goes to the two car garage.

What makes this cottage unique

- The back deck has a table and chairs and lovely views of the yard and woods. If you go a short distance through the trees, you will be on the public golf course which is nice for long walks in the evening.

-- A neighborhood Lake Michigan Beach access is only a short walk (8-10 min) from the house or you can drive there and park for free. Watch the gorgeous sunsets on Lake Michigan each evening.

-- The town of Charlevoix is about a 20 minute walk or ten minute bike ride along Mt. McSauba Road and then onto Michigan Ave, one of the loveliest streets in town with turn-of-the-century summer homes.

-- The Cottage is great for entertaining with serving platters and large dishes, plenty of silverware, wine glasses, coffee maker (round filters), toaster, table cloths and cloth napkins.

-- Gourmet kitchen was updated in 2014 with new Bosch dishwasher, double stainless steel ovens, a JennAir stovetop and stainless steel large refrigerator. New granite counter tops were also installed in 2014. There are also two bar stools in the kitchen area so people can hang out while you cook.

-- Cottage has high-quality linens for the beds and fluffy towels. There are two sets for all bedrooms. (no beach towels are provided)

-- This house is great for two families since each family can have their own floor for sleeping.

perfect place for a 10-12!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Jon's place. There were 11 of us, with plenty of room. The kitchen is terrific, as well as the rooms and living room. A 20 minute or so walk to downtown, and a 10 minute walk to lake michigan. Easy access to Rt 31. Hope you don't mind deer in the yard in the early morning as there were a few (they were very peaceful :)).

Jon was extremely accomodating and a great host!! He made everything very comfortable and convenient. Would definitely stay here again and plan on it for next year.

Charlevoix is one of the top resort towns in Northern Michigan. There are three public beaches, lots of activities in the park downtown with many free concerts, hiking and biking trails, lake or stream fishing, and great restaurants. You can walk or bike to town from our cottage along a lovely street of old original summer homes.
