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!

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!

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.

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.
