The character, the spaciousness and the absolutely priceless, unmatched year round, expansive, one of a kind, Lake Michigan and wilderness views. The view is the #1 compliment received when people visit. It is stunning year round.

This stunning home with unquestionable character is unlike any other you've experienced. Completely rebuilt in 2005, the first life of this home was as a boarding house in downtown Charlevoix. It was disassembled, moved and reassembled at it's current location. All of the systems of the house were replaced including electrical, plumbing, heating, etc. Multiple decks with collectively over 3000 square feet of space, stainless appliances, expansive granite counters, high ceilings, original hardwood floors, 5 original claw foot tubs, 52 new Pella windows, 2 new 8'x8' double pane glass panels overlooking Lake Michigan on the 3rd floor, and multiple original windows add to this home's incredible uniqueness.

Rural, remote setting. Wildlife abounds. All within 10 minutes of downtown Charlevoix.

Our greatest thanks for an incredible experience from beginning to end! Stan was great in communicating via email, phone or text even before we arrived. Very prompt! The place is amazing! Three floors so that everyone has plenty of space to spread out. And the house is stocked with every thing you might need. We hosted dinner for family in the area 2 nights in a row (total of 24 people for dinner) and it was fabulous!! Plenty of fridge space, cookware, eating space! The views are amazing, and the property is just the right distances to TC and Charlevoix (not too far, but not too close). It is also close to the secluded (but small) Norwood beaches to make you feel like you are really somewhere special. Our kids roamed the fields on the property- picking berries in the morning and flying kites in the afternoon. What a treat! Thanks Stan! We will definitely recommend your place, and might even be back ourselves!
Owner's Response: Jennifer,

Thanks very much for your kind words. I'm glad that you and your guests enjoyed your stay, this home and the surrounding property. When I have guests staying in this or any of my vacation properties, my goal is always to be as accessible as possible. Vacations are supposed to be relaxing and I do what I can to help out before, during and even after. It was a pleasure meeting you and your guests. I hope to see you back here. You and your guests will always be welcome.

Stan

Castle Farms Wedding Retreat

Stayed at this place for a week this summer after a wedding at the Castle. Short drive to the castle. Far enough away from everything but close enough too. House (or should I say "mansion"?) is clean, well maintained, stocked with necessities and includes a sweet view.

My wife and I were referred to this home by a friend that had stayed at the place last year (2010). We heard of a very accommodating, eclectic property owner, a very unique home with old world charm and all the modern conveniences necessary and of course the views. I'm quite comfortable in saying that ALL of the above are true and more.

You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thanks Bill!

Glad to hear Steven thinks I am "accomodating AND eclectic". ;) I enjoyed meeting them equally as much as I enjoyed meeting you and Lindsay. Good people! Hopefully the next time the weather will cooperate though. Of course weather in Charlevoix will NEVER compete with yours in Malibu.

Thanks for the kind words. Looking forward to seeing all of you again soon.

My colleagues and I stayed at this property during a medical conference in a neighboring town (Traverse City). 5 couples, 10 total in our party. My best advice is for anyone deciding whether to stay at this property or not is to read all of the previous reviews. They are all very accurate. An incredible house with an incredible view and an outstanding, very personable, unique owner.

A winning combination. Don't pass on this experience.

And Stan..... The next time we rent your beautiful property I WILL bring my Harley and go on a ride with you. Your enthusiasm and passion for riding rubbed off on me and I will take you up on your offer to ride to the UP.

We spent a wonderful week at this house in August of 2009. There was nothing more that we could have asked for! The views were spectacular. Plenty of space in and around the house for privacy, dining, sunning, etc. We all love to cook, and the kitchen provided everything we needed. Though the house is not on the water, it is a very short (3 minute) drive to a lovely, secluded beach. Charlevoix, Traverse City and Petoskey are all less than an hour's drive away. The house is also near a nature preserve.

We would (and will!) rent this property again.

Midwest Living Magazine has ranked the Charleovoix/ Petoskey area (aka, Michigan's 'Gold Coast') the #2 destination in all the Midwest! 'These neighboring resort towns along the Lower Peninsula’s northwestern shore began entertaining vacationers who came by steamship more than a century ago. No wonder they’re so good at it, offering an ever growing to-do list for travelers and a relaxed attitude. Petoskey climbs hills along Little Traverse Bay, and Charlevoix nestles between Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix. The beach and harbor are steps from the 100 shops and galleries of Petoskey’s Gaslight District and landmark Stafford’s Perry Hotel. Charlevoix’s boutiques string along the waterfront. Local restaurants, including Chandler's and Jesperson’s deliver memorable meals. In the warmer months, visitors golf at the Inn at Bay Harbor, a first-class resort with courses heralded as the Midwest's Pebble Beach.

Other Activities: Excitement is all around this property! Shopping, swimming, world class golfing, charter fishing and more! ------------------ Don't forget Fall on Michigan's Gold Coast! ---------- Experience Fall colors like never before right from the comfort of this property. ---------- Winter is fun up here too! Snowmobile out your door. Snowshoe and cross country ski out your door ---------- Multiple casinos within 45 minutes ---------- Great Cities! Charlevoix, Traverse City, Petoskey, Mackinac City ---------- Multiple breweries within 45 minutes ---------- Paved Bike/Walking Trail from Charlevoix to Petoskey ---------- World Class Dining and Shopping ---------- Avalanche Bay Water Park, Solace Spa and Boyne Mountain golf and skiing within 40 minutes ---------- Semi-private Lake Michigan beaches, rustic parks and trails within 2 miles or just walk the property and enjoy the scenery! ----------
