BETTER THAN ADVERTISED!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The listing doesn't really give all the great things about this home, & there probably isn't room anyway. I stayed Saturday to Wednesday with my adult children (all in their 40's). They left & two lady friends (of a certain age - I'm 70) joined me. It was perfect for both groups! Deborah has supplied this charming home with everything you could want. There are games, books, music, all paper products, even a picnic basket outfitted with everything!
The home is in the middle of a whole block of other "Mushroom Houses". It is such a great place. It is in a wonderful location and city as well as being close to Mackinac Island and Traverse City for easy day trips. One of my children is a real "foodie" and we had wonderful meals in the restaurants nearby.
We are so enchanted with "Young at Heart" we plan on renting it again next summer!
The only possible caution is the stairs are steep with no hand rail but I had no problem - just be careful.
I don't know how it could be improved upon for a great vacation rental.

LOVELY PLACE, WONDERFUL TOWN, GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this Ear Young remodeled home for three nights. It was a great place to serve as home base for exploring the area and a quiet refuge at the end of the day. Deborah was very accommodating and went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable stay.
The house is located only two blocks from Lake Michigan with a public beach and playground. It is 3 blocks from Bridge Street so it is an easy walk to shops and restaurants and a grocery store, and the city band shell or the marina.
The house has been updated with a small but efficient kitchen and main floor bath but retains the "Earl Young" flavor and charm. It was clean and well equipped and would easily sleep seven people. The kitchen table could seat 4 - 5 people and there is a second drop-leaf table in the living room if your group is larger.
There is a washer and a dryer in the basement which was very helpful for us. They even supply laundry detergent. The basement has the original stone foundation and no railing on the stairs and watch your head. It would not be suitable for small children or the elderly. It also smelled a bit moldy, though the place is very well maintained. I think it is just the nature of the age of the building and the damp weather.
It was also fun to walk around the neighborhood as there are several other "mushroom houses" next door and behind "Young At Heart". A big motor couch tour bus went past the house while we were there pointing out the houses to the tourists.
Deborah has compiled a three ring binder with information on the history of the house and area attractions. It is within sight of the public library which is well worth a visit if you are staying more than a day or two.

FABULOUS WEEK IN CHARLEVOIX

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week in Charlevoix in early October where "Young at Heart" served as the base of operations for our daughter's Castle Farms wedding. The house was exactly as advertised and the owners were very easy to work with. The location was perfect for our needs and your cottage was a wonderful gathering spot for our family and friends throughout the week. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch and watching the people go by on their sightseeing tours to look at the mushroom houses. The weather was perfect early in the week, even got in a short swim in Lake Michigan on Oct 1, and while it rained the day of the wedding it let up in time for the outdoor ceremony to take place as planned. It was truly a fabulous week in Charlevoix!

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This house has it all and it's in a great location. It was too cold to go to the beach but it is within walking distance as well as within walking distance to town. Deborah is amazing and very accommodating. Great spot and we'll be back - thanks for having us!

VENETIAN WEEK

  • 5 of 5
We loved out time in Young at Heart. The Mushroom houses area Charlevoix landmarks and it was fun to be near them. The cottage is perfectly situated for a great summer vacation, it is close to the beach and downtown. The cottage is well appointed we felt like were home immediately when we arrived. The owners were great to work with from beginning to end. We had six people, four adults and two children and had enough room. Main floor bathroom with the shower got a lot of use.

WINTER TIME IN CHARLEVIOX

  • 5 of 5
The house is very charming. Very clean and organized. Would definately stay again at the home and enjoyed out time there.
The owners were wonderful to work with and provided so much detail. They were even concerned about us traveling during the snow storm that was happening.
