Fantastic location and wonderful house. We rented a boat for the week and had it moored off the dock. Boat trips to Boyne City and Charlevoix were the highlights of the week. We also visited the Lavender Hill Farm and Traverse City. House had everything we needed - loved the couch. The owner was extremely helpful and communicated well.
Great place to swim and enjoy family time.
The star of the show for this rental is the deck and the view, and they do not disappoint. The railing, while it is great for keeping the view, is swaged cable, no issues for adults or older kids, but I could see it being scary if you have young kids. The kitchen is well equipped, though typical nitpicks of older rentals apply, pans stick, knives are dull, etc. Paper plates and paper towels were provided which is nice. The bedrooms are clean and mattresses are good. It seems like maybe Ikea furniture/mattresses. They're not luxurious but they are supportive and I had no issues waking up sore or tired. Fans are provided in the bedrooms which is great. One odd thing, one day I was out swimming with my daughters and two sketchy looking shirtless dudes just showed up unannounced to work on the lift. It wouldn't have been an issue if it would have been communicated, we weren't using the lift, but it was weird to just have 2 random people just show up. I should have been told they were coming. Overall we enjoyed our time there and it was one of the better places we have stayed on Charlevoix (we have stayed in 10 or so, and a few of them were very dodgy). That being said, it could stand to get a "deep clean", things like air vents, ceiling fans, etc are caked in dust. The dock was too short/shallow for us to use with our boat (24' inboard that draws 36") at all. It would be nice if it was 15'-20' longer (as the neighbors are) Access to the washer/dryer would also be greatly appreciated. 8 people at the lake for a week really need a way to dry things.
This home definitely has a million dollar view that will not disappoint you. Me and my family had a wonderful week here. We spent hours in the back yard at the beach and dock area fishing, rock hunting, swimming and kayaking. We found several petosky stones. The house was a reasonable proximity to all of the places we wanted to visit. We went to Mackinac Island 1 hour 12 minutes away it was awesome! Sleeping bear dune 1 hour 30 minutes it was amazing! If you go there have an amazing sandwich at the shipwreck cafe best sandwiches my family ever ate, Shopping in Charlevoix and Petosky was 30 minutes away both had quaint little shops. We saw Lake Charlevoix, Lake Michigan, Torch Lake, Lake Huron, and all of them were stunning! Thanks Larry for sharing your wonderful home with our family!
Beautiful Location and Lake View as advertised..
We loved this house and location for our family trip. It was perfect for our children to play in the sand, and collect rocks. Larry was wonderful and very responsive. We also enjoyed visiting Boyne and Charlevoix downtown.
The house is spacious and the property is amazing. Wonderful views! Larry, the homeowner, was easy to contact and quick with replies. My family and I had a wonderful time!
Gorgeous view and peaceful surroundings. We were glad to be able to bring our dogs with us.
Great Michigan “cottage” feel and perfect for a large family gathering! Larry is very responsive and truly wants his guests to have a good time!
Amazing view and great lake access. Would highly recommend.
