This cottage was perfect for my family
We stayed here for the first time the last week of July 2017. It was perfect for my family of 5 and a friend. We were also able to bring our dog which is so nice to have him along with us. The cottage had everything we could need, kitchen supplies, towels etc. The interior designs were updated and had a homey feel that made it easy to relax. Although it was a few miles from Boyne City, the drive to and from was so nice along the lake we didn't mind it at all. The lake access was a short little walk up the road and was secluded, private and just beautiful!! We would highly recommend this place.Jennifer C.

This charming home set in the woods is a great place to relax and take in all the Boyne/Charlevoix area has to offer, which is plentiful. Bob and Mary are very welcoming hosts and always able to answer questions and provide suggestions as to area dining or activities. They have renovated this home and the décor is updated and like a B and B. We liked the open concept for the living/dining, and kitchen area. The big deck is great as well. It backs to a golf course so it's great for those that want to be close to a course. Early morning does bring the golf course lawnmowers near the back of the home but they aren't there for long. We have stayed here three times and enjoyed all our stays.Boyne City Hideaway

Our family (3 generations - adult children and grandchildren) stayed here over the week of July 4. The home accommodated everyone nicely and had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing family vacation. It was a bonus to be able to bring our dog along. We especially enjoyed the back deck and having bonfires, playing at the beach (although the water was on the chilly side) and the guys took in a round of golf too. The home is tucked away down a quiet road next to the golf course - we missed it and drove right past the first time, even though we had directions! The beach is down across the main road, a nice walk, or a quick drive, and was enjoyable for building sand castles, flying kites and relaxing in the sun. The only down side, and not necessarily a bad thing, was that to the best we could tell, the nearest grocery store is about 20 minutes away. We have never been to this area before and discovered some fun things (holiday festivities in Boyne City, and the shops in Petoskey), but would love to come back and really explore the area better. Would definitely consider returning to this rental if we vacation in the area again and our family hasn't expanded too much.Audrey K.

Family Fun on Lake Charlevoix!
This Lake Charlevoix home is AMAZING!!! Newly renovated, spacious, comfortable, smoke free and clean! Our family had a week long vacation here and we loved it! At this private home your family and friends will have the tranquility of Upper Michigan, view of the 6th hole - Ye Old Golf Course from the back porch, and access to the beautiful blue Lake Charlevoix across the street. The french country kitchen is stocked for your cooking needs, and you can dine at the breakfast bar, dining room table or on the back porch. The family room has games, fire place and flat screen TV, with WIFI connectivity for your internet needs. There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a large bathroom that has a shower and a tub, for the little ones. The second floor has a lofted bedroom, private bathroom and private balcony. Hardwood floors are throughout the home, and a stack able washer/dryer set. The photos provided by the owners were great, but you have to see it to believe it! The owners, Bob and Mary were excellent with the rental process and returned our deposit check promptly upon departing the vacation home. They were our personal concierges for the area and made sure we had everything needed for a wonderful vacation. Downtown East Jordan is 5-10 minutes away and Boyne City is 4-5 miles down the road along the lake shore. We rented a boat from Captain Ron's for the day and explored on Lake Charlevoix. There are several marinas in the area for your rental needs, shops, restaurants, parks, play areas and so much more! We would recommend this vacation home to our family and friends and plan to return for a future family vacation. Thank you Bob and Mary for sharing your home with us! It was truly a blessing!Family Travelers

Perfect for our family of 4
This house was perfect for our family. Private road with beautiful view of golf course but still close to everything. Walking distance to Lake Charlevoix, short drive to Boyne City. Nicely decorated inside with everything you need.Jim Youngblood

Very clean and accommodating
We stayed here in September of 2017. The weather was fantastic! The home itself is secluded, but close enough to Boyne City and Charlevoix and Petoskey to be convenient. The home was very clean. The beds and furniture were comfortable. Bob was very easy to work with, and a really nice guy. We will definitely be back! My Response Thanks for the great review, Candace! I'm glad Brian and you enjoyed your stay with us! Thanks for staying with us and I hope we can accommodate you again in the future! Best regards, BobCandace D.

Nice, spacious, clean, good location to many towns and site seeing.
Very nice private in the woods home. Roomy and clean. The private beach, however have to drive a short distance was very pretty and quiet, nice sandy beach! Also for a bigger beach Whiting Park a mile away is very nice for extended time on a beach with toilets. The homes deck was large and roomy spent time reading playing cards etc. The fire pit was nice for evening gatherings. We had cooler weather so we enjoyed exploring Castle Farms and Lavender farm and Pond Hill Farms, Lake Michigan all the near by cities for shopping and eating and great harbor views. Like Charlevoix and Harbour Springs, Walloon Lake, Petoskey or the Michigan Shore line tunnel of trees, to name or favorites. Great home for staying put or site seeing We even spent a day at Mackinac Island. Only downfall is the uncomfortable mattresses, but the rental fee is fitting. And a shovel in garage would come in handy for the few times a neighbor dog left his "goods" Diane WilsonDiane G.
