About The Owner

This family cottage has been our vacation home and then year-round home for about 25 years. It is a beautiful, peaceful, and quiet location just 12 miles south of Charlevoix and directly west of the Antrim Dells Golf Course (open to the public). It located just 20 minutes from two of the best restaurants in Michigan: Tapawingo and Rowe Inn; both located in Ellsworth. Don't miss these gourmet restaurants and make sure to make reservations in advance as they are quite busy in the summer months.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1983

Why The Owner chose Charlevoix

We chose this 'Gold Coast' location for our family cottage because of the beautiful beaches and sunsets. The peaceful and tranquil location is the ultimate in 'laid back.' The beaches are perfect for walking, running, playing or swimming. The water is totally safe and clean. Nightimes and mornings, you will find perfect silence except for the lapping of the waves or the call of the Seagulls.

What makes this cottage unique

The Antrim Creek Natural Area is just 5 cottages down to the north. You will easily recognize it as the boundry is marked by a little stream that kids and dogs love to play in. Cross the stream (it is easy to wade through, and sometimes to jump over) and you'll find 156 acres of rolling sand dunes and over one mile of pristine beaches which fade into woods on your right. There are no homes and no buildings in this area. Just acres of woods and beaches with few people. There are some great trails through the woods. After more than 25 years, we have yet to see a group over 10-15 people in the entire area. The Antrim Creek Natural Area is a Prehistoric Native American site dateing to the Late Woodland period. Based on the recovery of small triangular arrowheads and distinctive cordimpressed pottery fragments it probably is Late Woodland in age (circa A.D. 600-A.D 1600) For more details and some beautiful photos of the area, go to the Antrim Natural Area Website.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Debby - We loved it there. So did Celia. It was so quiet there - we saw a couple people at their homes/cottages outside but overall it was very quiet and peaceful. The walks on the beach were exactly what we'd hoped for and the fact that we could bring Celia with us was such a bonus. She behaved herself beautifully because she was exhausted most of the time from running outside and exploring all around your cottage and the lakeshore etc. She's a high energy lab full of potential. The trick is to burn up some of that high energy!! Wish I could tap into it and take some for myself!!

Happy travels to you and who knows, we may be contacting you again to stay in your lovely cottage on the water.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5
Location, location, location! This Lake Michigan cottage is perfectly located on the shore of Lake Michigan. It feels remote, yet it is conveniently close to great hiking, shopping, and restaurants. We loved listening to the waves crashing on the beach all night after a nightcap curled up on the couch in front of the fire. The cottage has everything you could need and was clean and comfortable. We took long walks along the beach in front of the cottage, but also made forays into Charlevoix, Petosky, and Traverse City. We were there in the autumn and the colors were spectacular. We live in Los Angeles and absolutely loved our Michigan getaway.

Relaxing fall weekend away.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful three night stay in this cabin this fall, (2014). It is close to Lake Michigan - in fact if you stay in the bedroom facing the lake, and don't close the blinds, that is what you wake up to in the morning - a view of Lake Michigan! We brought our lab, Cecelia, and she loved it. We went for walks down the beach with her several times. Though the cabin is old, it is nicely kept, and has everything you need. In the evenings, my husband and I would sit out on the screened porch and watch the sunset while Celia nosed around in the little plot of trees near the cabin, and in the sand. As most of us Michiganders know…there is no place like Lake Michigan! We only used the main floor of the cabin but there is also a large area upstairs with beds. This would be a fun cabin for a family vacation as well. And you're not far from Charlevoix or Petoskey here. We came here to relax so we were not looking for activities in town, but we know if we'd wanted to eat out or go to different events, that they were available to us. We came here for the view and time away together. The view was fantastic and the time away was peaceful and fun.

Our family stayed at this quaint cabin directly on Lake Michigan. We were close to nearby Charlevoix, Traverse City, and were even able to drive to the Dunes to a spectacular lake on a private beach where we had taken our children years ago. The refrigerator and stove were convenient and we took turns cooking our meals as we visited on the beautiful screen porch.

Falling Apart!

  • 1 of 5
I have rented many homes on Lake Michigan over the years, and have always had a good, well taken care of home. This one let me down! Broken stove, broken picnic table, broken railing to the upstairs room, two broken lawn chairs, grill without a grill grate, queen size mattress on a twin frame with a twin sheet fitted on it, two cabinets with broken drawers, doors with broken locks, dirty bathroom, multiple chairs with badly torn covers, a boat filled with garbage on the side of the driveway and weeds everywhere. The photos are definitely from a few years ago!
The worst problem is the owner will not even respond to your e-mails, and has no phone number you can call. Sad.
Look around before you book this "getaway".

Owner's Response: The renter wrote this review after I let him know I would not be returning his deposit. I sent Mark the e-mails that I had received from my housekeeper and my neighbors

My housekeeper had written me that Mark and his eight children had left the cottage unusually dirty with things out of order, missing, and broken. There was sand in the frig, frig drawers out of the frig and filled with sand, chairs broken, and mini blinds taken down (left filthy on the porch). The garage door openers, and the lid on the trash were are all missing. The overflowing trash container, three very large bags of trash, and a variety of broken beach toys were left. The trash was not take out on Friday as required in the rental contract. Subsequently, the animals got into the trash, and it was strewn around the yard. My housekeeper commented that it looked like Mark and his eight children had had some wild kids party, messed the place up, and broke things!

I have rented for over 20 years. It is very unusual to have this sort of thing happen. Most of Mark's complaints were highly exaggerated, and at the same time, I sent his letter to my handyman asking him to evaluate his complaints and make the appropriate repairs/adjustments. I am always available by e-mail to my renters, and I have support in the local area should a need arise.

Wonderful Family Hideway!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is absolutely charming!! Very clean, well maintained, fully stocked (anything you might need), with comfortable furnishings and beds. The porch is wonderful! Great place to enjoy your morning coffee and a beautiful view at sunrise... and the sunsets! The Lake Michigan beachfront is gorgeous, rustic and secluded... close to a beautiful nature preserve. We had a fabulous time making special family memories. Would highly recommend this location to anyone!

We just returned from a wonderful week at this cottage! The site is amazing, looking directly onto Lake Michigan from a lawn chair outside or from the screened in porch. Site is next to a nature preserve for hiking. Just a few miles south of Charlevoix, and also nearby Petoskey. The cottage is lovely, white log inside, immaculate and well furnished. The upstairs "loft" is huge with a queen bed and set of bunks. No a/c needed for the cool lakefront nights. The added benefit of bringing your pets is great, our 2 goldens loved the water! Great nearby fishing in Lake Charlevoix and beautiful beaches there too. BBQ grill provided so I never had to cook! Plan to visit; it is well worth it. Nearby Castle Farms is a great family day trip.
