Under New Ownership ~ Property is being updated and will be sparkling and ready for rentals as of April 2015. This is a very unique property! Ground floor 1,650 sf. condo in downtown Boyne City, on the shores of beautiful Lake Charlevoix in the small (12 unit) Harborage Bay development. We have a HUGE grassy yard as well as a HUGE sandy beach with fire pit. There is a small dock for fishing and a designated swim area. We are literally a 60 second walk to downtown Boyne City, located directly NEXT to the One Water new development (Cafe Sante, anyone?). There are restaurants (including the famous Red Mesa!!), bars and shops in walking distance, as well as several city parks, ice cream and chocolate specialty shops! The Farmer's Market is close by and there are always great activities going on in town - including Friday night 'Stroll the Streets' featuring lots of live outdoor music, balloon twisters, and shop specials all summer long. The property features BEAUTIFUL and expansive sunset views year-round!! The large dining table is perfect for dining, entertaining and gaming with it's square shape and 8 seats. There are 4 upholstered bar stools which provide additional seating/entertaining options.
It is just a five minute drive to Boyne Mountain – 3 championship golf courses and skiing, along with the awesome indoor water park, Avalanche Bay - a trolley service from Boyne Mt. to Downtown BC is available during the ski season.
It is a short 20 minute drive to shopping (and the newly renovated casino) in Petoskey.
Boat, sea-doo, kayak and bike rentals are available nearby, as well as ski and snowboard rentals at Boyne Mountain. Nearby marinas and docks can accommodate your boat.

I was practically raised in Boyne City - I have close family that has lived in town for 25 years. We use the property as much as possible when it's not rented, and thoroughly enjoy all the Boyne and the surrounding areas have to offer.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2003
We originally purchased this condo as a single-family vacation home, and had no trouble choosing Boyne as the location. I have been coming here since I was a child.
We enjoy being right in town with the ability to walk (even with the kids!) everywhere. Additionally, we have our own private beach RIGHT there! We can go for days without driving the car.
We had two couples and 4 kids stay very comfortably in this condo. The bedrooms were positioned nicely to allow both groups to have their own space. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are very spacious and complementary for large groups in a condo. We also love the proximity to downtown and the beach. The ease with which you can walk to both is outstanding. The icing on the cake is a direct view of the water. We have stayed in many places in the area and both couples agree this is our favorite location of all.
What a great stay we had at this condo in Boyne! You can't beat the location! Walk 100 yards for your morning coffee at Johann's, or skip over to Cafe Sante for a great dinner. Watch the sunset from your front porch. Great accommodations for a family.
We have vacationed in the Boyne City area for several years. This condo was nice, the water levels in the designated swim area were very low...not able to swim comfortably at all...ended up further down the beach area to the public swim area. Did, however, sojourn most every evening to the Alpine Chocolate Haus which is steps away for warm homeade caramel corn and Moomers ice cream...yum. Cafe Sante had very good food also. Thank you again for sharing your home.
I have spent part of every summer in Boyne City since I was born. Once my father died, I started renting places. This is by far the best place my family has stayed to date. I have stayed at this condo twice and both times we loved it. The location is ideal, beach and town all in one location. The sunsets are magnificent. The condo is roomy, lovely, clean and has a washer and dryer plus full size kitchen. The beds were comfortable. the only thing I would change would be to make the outside patio rain proof as we had 3 days of rain and would have liked to have sit outside a bit but water dripped down from the upstairs deck. I highly recommend this condo.
My family visits Boyne City every year, but this was the first time we stayed at this property. We were all very pleased with the size and appearance of the condo, very bright and homey. Beautiful view of the lake and a private dock for fishing or boating. It was nice to be right on the lake, but be only steps from shops and restaurants, privacy and convienance at teh same time. We would definitely stay again.
My family and I had a wonderful time in this nicely appointed unit. Being right downtown was very convenient and fun for our kids. Owners are very responsive and helpful.
