A perfect all year round vacation home. Conveniently located just a short walk or bike ride (approx. 3/4 mile) from Boyne City's Main street shopping and fabulous restaurants. Public access to Lake Charlevoix with a small beach is one block away; a public boat launch is a few hundred feet away; Young State Park is one mile away; and Boyne Mtn. Golf and Ski Resort is seven miles away.
Ranch-styled home sits above the Lake Charlevoix shoreline giving you a relaxing view of a true Michigan treasure. Very spacious and clean with an adjoining door to a second unit for families and friends vacationing together. A large private backyard is perfect for daily play and evening campfires. And, we have yet to see a mosquito!!
A 25' x 25' great room, with a view of Lake Charlevoix, is perfect for a large gathering or families just needing extra room. This room was once a store front for a small business and has unique characteristics with a nautical theme. The master bedroom includes a queen-sized bed and wood-burning fireplace, the second bedroom has a set of built-in bunks, and the great room includes a pull-out sofa.
Guests who have enjoyed their stay typically participate in outdoor activities and/or nearby attractions and appreciate a clutter-free home at an affordable price. We do not recommend our home to families with young children who need constant supervision or guests with physical limitations that prevent them from climbing steps.
The south unit, built in the 1940s, is primarily available for vacationers with enough beds for six (6) people and enough floor space for two (2) more. This unit has a maximum occupancy of eight (8) people with a maximum of four (4) adults. The north unit, a later addition, can be rented as an additional unit for larger families or more than one family traveling together however the time available is limited. We do not allow smoking or pets.
We accept checks and PayPal.

Our names are John and Jackie and we live in the Grand Rapids area in Michigan. We enjoy many outdoor activities including downhill skiing, hiking, biking and sailing. We purchased our home on December 26, 2007 just in time to spend New Years Eve at our vacation home.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
Boyne City is in the heart of Boyne Country. There are many things to do in the area both inside and out. Many people come back to Boyne City year after year. It is within 20 minutes of the very popular tourist destinations of Petoskey and Charlevoix, yet it is quieter and less crowded. Boyne City is located on Lake Charlevoix, a large lake known for fishing and boating. Boyne City is very convenient for us to enjoy skiing in the winter and water activities in the summer.
Our home is within 1 mile of Boyne City Mainstreet and Young State Park and has a wonderful view of Lake Charlevoix. The grocery story is within walking distance. There is also a small public access within a few hundred yards of our home. Everything is close by. Our home is a two-unit home. We use one unit as our vacation home and the other is rented to vacationers. Because we do not have to share the time, there are plenty of dates to choose from when planning your vacation. We periodically rent out our unit when two families would like to vacation together but still want their own space.
Your offering is well balanced (quality/price). Hope to deal with you again sometime soon.
My family has stayed at boyne mountain for several years but with growing teens we wanted more space to "hang out." This home is a gem of a find; and is Stocked with board games, a blender for shakes, and cable television. The local family fare grocery is a minute away and has a Starbucks. We ate at a great local Latin American restaurant: I recommend the house margarita and quinoa burritos. And we enjoyed shopping downtown boyne city at the tea shop. My teen boarders enjoyed the challenging terrain parks at boyne highlands. We got the flexible pass off liftopia. We were rained out of a second day of skiing and ventured into petoskey for a movie and shopping. The home was the perfect spot to spend Christmas with our three teens. I Highly recommend this home for any vacation time. The owners were also very accommodating and easy to communicate with via email and phone.
We enjoyed staying at the South Marina because it is close to downtown. The living room is huge for families with children. Beds were comfortable and the shower was good. We could see the lake from the front windows - a real bonus!
We stayed at the South Marina unit the second week of July and were very comfortable. It is clean, well maintained and the neighborhood is very quiet. It's quite spacious for a small family; lots of pleasant details in the furnishings (nautical theme throughout) and nice fresh linens in the bedrooms and bath. The second bedroom is small, and, as noted in the owners' documents, the upper bunk should only be occupied by a child. Having full laundry facilities is a real plus. The listing photos were good representations of how the unit actually appears. The owners were pleasant and professional, easy to deal with.
Great place to stay and was great for my family of 6. Nicely located to Boyne Mountain, very close and very easy to get back and forth. Nicely located close to town and also the grocery store. Highly recommend!
My family stayed in this great centrally located home during spring break 2011. We were excited by the value and the pictures on the website, but when we arrived we couldn't believe how big and nicely done this home is! There are two units that are connected by locked doors to provide either privacy or fellowship. Both units are much bigger by themselves than the pictures suggest, but together this place offers a LOT of space for the money. The unit not shown in the pictures is even nicer than the one in the pictures! Very, very comfortable and clean, which you can only get when the owners vacation here as well, which they do. We loved the quietness and location right across from the water with great views and easy walking access to town. The extras of kayaks and other water toys was a real plus! We are looking forward to staying here again soon! Thanks John and Jackie for keeping such a nice place for others to enjoy in this beautiful area!
This home was perfect for us. It was a walk to downtown Boyne, just a couple minutes from Young State Park and beautiful beaches. We have a young son who loved it. The living room and kitchen are very open and clean. It was also great having a big backyard with a firepit for the evenings. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a place in this area.
Casinos, skateboarding parks, free outdoor ice skating, music on the city streets, variety of festival and flea markets all summer long.
