Enjoy the solitude of your own private cottage, tucked in the north woods on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix, just four miles north of East Jordan. Offering 100' of sugar sand beach (one of the very best on Lake Charlevoix), enjoy morning coffee on the beach, swimming and boating during the day and evening sunsets beside a beach fire. Surrounded by white pines, white cedars, and white birches, the 1950's remodeled white cottage offers a quiet retreat for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of northern Michigan. The kid-friendly beach has a gradual slope for lots of wading, water play and swimming. There is also a dock and buoy for tying up a boat or pwc. A 14 acre woods with a stream offers room for hiking directly behind the cottage. The cottage is 70' from the sandy beach; 140' from water's edge.

We are a retired couple who have lived here on Lake Charlevoix since 2005. In 2003 we removed the old family cottage built in 1913 by Sherry's Grandfather and built what is now our year round home. We are next door to the White Cottage that we purchased from family members in 2008.
Bob Pursel purchased this cottage in 2008
We live next door to this cottage and purchased it to provide a rental for family, friends and others. Now that we have this beautiful spot, with a beautiful 300 ' sandy beach, we have a decided it's too good not to share it with others. It's a great place for young children to build sand castles and swim with shallow water quite a ways out into the lake, plus there's a swing set. .
There is a 14 acre hiking woods with a stream located across the narrow lane (Oneonta Beach Rd.) that leads to the property. The cottage property is a very private setting, with one of the nicest sandy beaches on Lake Charlevoix. There is woods on one side of the cottage as well as behind it. It's a great place for dogs, too. From the cottage it's a 5-minute drive to shopping.
Myself and three other people and my 2 dogs stayed here for a month. The owners and their dogs are very accommodating and saw to our every reasonable need and beyond. This was exactly the type of place that I would like to stay in on the beach in warmer months. The beach and dock were right outside the back door and all we had to do was walk out to the kayaks to go for an adventure. I would certainly come back again.
The owners were super accommodating, extremely pleasant and kind beyond words. They freely shared their time, ears and thoughts. The dogs really loved the place and they even let us use a collar for their invisible fence. We caught dozens of fish right off the dock and trolled for pike in the neighboring coves. I highly recommend this cabin and it's wonderful owners.
2014 will be the 4th consecutive year we've spent a week at the White Cottage, so obviously we love it, and the owners are the best. One year our daughters & 5 grandchildren were with us. The last 2 years a sister & brother-in-law, who is somewhat disabled by MS, were with us. We bring our Sunfish sailboat & sail off the beach...some of the best sailing we've had anywhere. Everything said by the owners & previous reviewers is absolutely true. It's a rustic quiet hideout within minutes of fine dining & shopping. It's also a great base from which to explore a beautiful area ranked tops in the USA, from Mackinac Island & Sault St. Marie, Canada to Sleeping Bear Dunes Natl. Lakeshore & three of the Great Lakes.
We spent one night at the cottage while touring Michigan in September '12 from Arizona. We were looking for the "Michigan Experience" - cottage, woods, lake, bonfire, peace and quiet... and that's exactly what we got! The cottage is well suited for great family fun. The owners are extra-accomodating, helpful, and make excellent hosts. If you like rustic living in the woods, on a lake, far from the chaos of the "real world"... you'll love staying here!
We stayed at the "White Cottage" for an extended weekend and it was delightful. We found everything to be clean and there where many amenities that you do not usually find in rental cottages: a well appointed kitchen (with all of the necessary equipment to cook a full meal if you wish), books, games ample blankets and pillows. The setting is lovely, being among the trees with a beautiful view of Lake Charlevoix. Due to the fact that this is the only rental on the property, we felt as though it was our own getaway rather than a resort. The cottage provides a quiet, traditional "Up North" experience while still not too far to from the busier areas of Charlevoix. Petoskey or even Traverse City. For any one who enjoys stargazing, definitely the night shy was spectacular! The most difficult part of our weekend was having to leave when it was over. We would definitely considerer staying here again.
Have stayed here for the past two years. One week for family reunion with all the kids & grandkids coming by and one week for our anniversary. Wonderfully quiet. It is all that the owner has described and reveals in the pictures For a rustic setting it still has many comforts, but you'll find yourself using the beach most of the time!
We also brought our motorcycle up last year and enjoyed the many beautiful roads all around the area. The property is well maintained and the owners, being next door, are super with any questions or needed help!
Will go back again and would recommend it to anyone.....
There are some great towns/cities within 25 miles in which to shop and dine...Charleviox, Boyne City, East Jordan, Petoskey and Gaylord. Plus, there is a very nice indoor water park at Boyne Mountain, just 15 miles away.
