About Rhett Lloyd

Ned and Amey. We live in Rockford, Mi. We bought the cottage 6 years ago We come up whenever we can. Love it here on the lake.

Rhett Lloyd purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Rhett Lloyd chose East Jordan

Ned grew up here as a child.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is set close to the water. Kids love the sandy beach and swimming area.

The South Arm of Lake Charlevoix is great for boating, because it is usually calmer than the rest of the lake.

Swimming, waterskiing, fishing, hiking, biking Boating Sunbathing Canoeing Tubing.

Beautiful little cottage on gorgeous beachfront property....well stocked with the essentials and spotlessly clean. We absolutely loved our week there and plan on a return visit next year.

RE: Lake Charlevoix is Gorgeous!

  • 3 of 5
The house was very nice just as many of the other reviews indicated. The kitchen was well appointed w/paper products included. The bedrooms are tight but it is not as though you are in them very much. The deck is shaded which is nice when you are spending all your time in the sun at the beach level. The beach was really great, the kids and our lab could walk out quite a distance without hitting deep water and it was sandy w/minimal muck and/or rocks. We rented kayaks and a paddle board and they were perfect for mornings on the lake. We also rented a jet ski from a local marina and that was fun.
A few complaints...there is no air-conditioning in the house and we had the misfortune of being there during the hottest week of the year- temps inside reached 100 and it was literally unbearable. We ended up going home a few days early, so bring your box fans from home for sure. Second concern is the long, narrow drive that leads to the cottage...it is a bit over grown and left scratches down the side and on the roof of our truck. This really needs to be trimmed back. Lastly, there is an expectation that you will clean the unit before you leave (not just pick up, but really clean and wash etc). I have rented through VRBO several times for other properties and the cleaning fee has always been included, this was an additional fee. The washing machine is a stackable unit making washing bedding a major task. It also made me question how clean the place really was when we arrived as it was likely to have been done by the previous renter, to me this is not a plan and there should be a professional cleaning service as part of the deal, especially at the rate we paid for the week.
Overall, it was a decent place to stay- you just need to understand the limitations and decide of the draw of Lake Charlevoix makes it worth it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to comment regarding your recent cottage visit. We appreciate your choice to stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed the many aspects of your visit as the vast majority of our guests have for the past 4 seasons. Our location here on beautiful Lake Charlevoix with a 125' of private sand beach is our main feature and I'm glad you enjoyed that so immensely.
As to the concerns noted regarding your stay we are sincerely sorry you had a less than a perfect stay. We strive for everyone to have a wonderful memory to carry home with them.
The high temperatures you experienced during your stay are very uncommon here in the northland. Usually we jump for joy if we get too hot, so we can jump in the lake. You make a good point that we could use additional cooling for those rare hot days, so I have added two large fans to the cottage inventory.
You made a very good point about the cleaning charge. We did not charge you for cleaning and we never have in the past to any of our guests. I have changed the agreement form to spell this out more clearly and to make it clear that we do have the cottage professionally cleaned after every visit. I apologize for the incorrect and poor wording in the agreement to that effect.
The 1/4 mile drive down to the cottage is through a beautiful forest and our guests love the canopy of trees that shade it. We have elected to not clear cut a swath thru it to disturb that feeling. We do trim back the road each spring and now I realize that an additional trimming is required.
Again we thank you for your choice with us and I look forward to seeing you in the future should you choose a visit up North.

All the Best to you both,

A great cottage on the south arm

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The cottage was clean, fresh, and well equipped (especially the kitchen). The beds were very comfortable. This side of the lake is calmer for smaller boats, on the other arm, when we rented a place there, we often could not go out because of big waves. The deck is beautiful and we enjoyed our meals outside. The wireless internet was appreciated as both couples brought laptops. The beach is great for sunbathing and there is a Glen's in East Jordan for groceries. Side trips to Charlevoix, Boyne City and Petoskey were great! Thanks for your hospitality!
