Beautifully furnished upscale log cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property tucked away on a quiet secluded lake. We rented it for my family to enjoy during the weekend of my daughter’s wedding at Castle Farms, just down the road. The views of the lake alone are worth renting this property, but the inside of the house is spectacular as well. Much attention has been paid to detail and the kitchen is a cook’s dream. Two of the bedrooms upstairs have multiple beds. Very clean, organized and comfortable home.

Lovingly built and well-maintained. Excellent spot for children and families.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this vacation. The home is spacious, the kitchen is perfect for cooks of all skill levels, and the outdoor area is hard to leave. The lake is shallow at the dock and safe for kids to swim in, and the small kayaks and paddle boat make accessing this small lake easy (I went in my pj's for a daily sunrise paddle--highly recommended if you can beat your family to the launch). The lake is swimmable (both experienced and inexperienced swimmers enjoyed swimming across the lake and back with escorts riding in the kayaks) and the wildlife is beautiful (the lake loons are pretty comfortable with people, a pair of blue herons make the lake their home, and I enjoyed seeing two pileated woodpeckers one morning on the far side from the cabin). The lake is warm in late summer and the development around the lake is responsible enough to keep it pristine.

We recommend visiting the farmer's markets around for local, fresh produce, and John Cross Fishery in Charlevoix can provide Lake Michigan trout, perch and walleye. Perfect cooked on the Kettlers' indoor or outdoor grills, or fried in the large iron skillet!

Do book, but not before we get our week scheduled for next year. . .

Beautiful home!

We had a fantastic time at this home. Every detail has been thought through and the view is spectacular. Just a short drive to Lake Michigan beach and Charlevoix.

Our experience at this home will remain our favorite for so many reasons! From our personal greeting by the owner through our personal good-bye to an undeniably superior week - it was perfect! The home is beautifully appointed-designed with a discerning eye and laid out with entertaining and comfort in mind. There is absolutely nothing wanting especially in the spectacular kitchen area fit for accommodating gourmet meal preparation and socializing. The outdoor deck and seating areas offer privacy and face a beautiful lake providing breathtaking sunsets with kayaking, fishing off the dock, horseshoes and a great fire pit. The home is laid out with sleeping quarters that are amazingly spacious and comfortable; the master suite on the first floor was convenient and spacious without needing to navigate any stairs. The showers throughout the house belong in a magazine!

Located with easy access to the ferry at Lake Charlevoix, it was simple to visit Boyne City or take a quick trip to Charlevoix and beyond, we enjoyed endless possibilities for day trips to Petosky and Harbor Springs. There was also great golfing in the region.

It was truly difficult leaving this piece of heaven lovingly shared by the owners! We will be returning next year-after all, when you find perfection in vacation accommodations why look any further!

Great, relaxing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great week here for a family getaway. The cabin has everything you need and tons of space. The pictures don’t do it justice! The lake was wonderful and the sunsets were beautiful. Charlevoix is very close and is such a cute, little town. Great week!
