Property description

Treat your family to a vacation they will cherish for a lifetime. This recently remodeled Lake Michigan beach house includes period hardware and lighting details and professional décor finished with fine art, oriental rugs and many antique pieces. The landscaped grounds are designed to return the lake side of the property to its indigenous state. This home accommodates 16 people with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths…the perfect location for your extended family. The large formal dining room provides ample room for your gatherings, complimented by gorgeous sunset views. There are four bedrooms on the second floor, three with queen beds. The magnificent master suite has a king bed, private walk in closet/dressing room, lavishly appointed bath and Lake Michigan view from the balcony. Two of the second floor bedrooms have additional sleeping porch access with a twin trundle bed on each porch. The third floor has been converted to a “kids sleeping loft” with five twin trundle beds, several window seat nooks in each of the four alcoves, lots of games and fun kid things and a phenomenal claw foot tub.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We're an extended family hailing from Detroit, Chicago, New York, San Francisco, St. Louis and other far flung parts. We cherish our time together in this home - and hope you find the same magic there that we do.

Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix, MI, USA:
Northern Michigan has been a touch point for our family for years - the summertime biking, golf, and water sports can't be beat and the off season solace and serenity pair well with winter sports. Area restaurateurs rival those we favor in our home town big cities, as do the many antique shops and art galleries - at a fraction of the price. We stumbled on this property in the fall of 2008, and fell in love on the spot.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Spend quality time with family on your private sandy beach or stroll the shoreline of Lake Michigan and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. From the lakeside porch, watch the sailboats and freighters coming in and out of the Big Lake through the Pine Lake Channel to harbor in downtown Charlevoix. Or, enjoy your morning coffee or a chat with neighborhood strollers from the wrap-around street-side porch. Treat your kids to s'mores roasting in the fire pit on the beach; take a swing on the hammock as you watch the stunning sunsets from a hidden wooded perch; or take the ten minute walk to town for dining or shopping. Be sure to keep an eye out for eagles - they're often spotted on a perch overlooking the lake. This is a magical property - one where lifetime memories are created and cherished.
