My husband and I, together with our son, daughter in law and their almost two year old twins just returned from a near perfect vacation at Lake Charlevoix. (The only thing that was imperfect was a few days of weather.) The home is more beautifull and spacious than depicted in the photos. The open floor plan was comfortable and worked perfectly for us. The house and yard (including deck) were clean and well-maintained. We (and the kids) were delighted with the assortment of sand toys and the swing/slide set. The kitchen was very well-stocked with utensils, cooking tools, etc. The grill and hot tub were an added plus. (Our only "complaint" is that there could have been more towels--both bath and beach. To make matters worse, we left 3 towels on the boat we rented right before we left. I suspect that we may not the only ones to contribute to a towel shortage, of which the owners may not have been aware. We reported our "loss" to them.) The location was ideal--only a few minutes from downtown Charlevoix and a reasonable drive (maybe 20 minutes) from Petoskey. Highly recommend the house and the owners, who made the whole transaction simple and pleasant.
Our family rented this home over July 4th week and had an unforgettable time. The home was spacious enough for our party - 11 and left us with wonderful memories. Everything was in great condition, and the home was very comfortable. Everything you needed was provided by the owners. The view of the bay is one of the best parts of the home and the living space was great both inside and out. The beach is fantastic. The shallow water was great for the kids and the kayaks and paddle boat offered additional recreation for both the adults and children. We had beautiful weather the entire time we were there, so the bay was part of the everyday routine. Definitely get a sitter and check out Esperance for dinner. You won't be disappointed. Can't make it for dinner, go in during the day and purchase some wine from their excellent collection, get an assortment of appetizers and enjoy them back at the house. There is more than enough around the home and in Charlevoix to keep everyone entertained should you want a change in scenery. There is always great shopping and great eating to be done in downtown Charlevoix. This home is perfectly located to do it all. Otherwise, pack a cooler for the beach, set up the lounge chair and enjoy.
We've rented 3 years in a row! Great location to Downtown Charlevoix. Fantastic house, private beach and clean calm water. Brand new 6 person hot tube. Boat dock and even a sunken shipwreck you can swim to. We've been renting on Lake Charlevoix for over 20 years this is the best cottage we've found.
My family and I rented this home for one week in August 2013. After seeing the negative review posted, I spoke directly with the owner who assured me that the negative review contained numerous falsehoods. After arriving at the home, I can say that the owner was correct and that the individual who posted the negative review could not have posiy stayed at the same property. The home is ideal. It was very clean, spacious and offered excellent amenities. Indeed, it actually exceeded our expectations in every way. It is absolutely the best location in charlevoix. Having rented different homes in the area for the last several years, my entire family agrees that this property has been our favorite so far. We look forward to coming back for years to come!
I have left a full detailed review of this property at HomeAway rental site. but would like to expand on further details. This house is not a property that is rental ready by any means, when you have to clean out drawers and clean before unpacking, vacuum, clean the oven, empty the nasty 2 month old ice in the freezer, find the towels you need to use, and finding in every bathroom even the kitchen used old tooth brushes, nope not!. The upkeep of the property is also in need of some TLC, weeds everywhere, lawn not cut, dock falling down held up by CBS, Hot tub not hot, never did get hot,,,, first night we lost lights, heat, and second day no hot water..... right cold showers everyone! when it was 50 degrees!,,,, the smell of propane/ gas coming out of the garage was enough to kill you or blow us up......! oh and the best part is your on candid camera!!!!!! audio and video inside the house.. yup did not read that in the listing! further the owner has decided to make the A/C-Heat a smart control unit, where they feel they can monitor it as needed,.not in the description either! If you can not sense it was not a great experience for the rate charged, then you should absolutely pay the money and see for yourself..... now they have it renting for even more. wow.....oh and if you need the caretaker to come out as we did get ready because, he point blank told us He did not care about the issues, and if we had a problem with them he was just going to leave! so we did manage to make it through the week, although I kept wondering why every time I took a shower my feet were black!,,,,, well I figured it out,,,,, black shower floor hides mold and dirt,,,, yup you guessed it,,,, filthy and moldy, how do I know? because we cleaned the house from top to bottom before we left!!!!!!! and the amount of grime and dirt I got out of that shower has been there for quite some time....I would highly suggest they hire an new cleaning women! oh yes speaking of, I had emailed the owner the day before leaving asking if it would be ok to leave at noon instead of 10am, she said no problem,,, well the cleaning woman shows up at 11am, and starts to argue with me about the fact we should be gone! when I explained we were leaving with consent from the owners at noon,,, she still argued... lord !!!!!! So in ending, when we left at 11:30am a half hour early, I text the owners asking when we would get our security deposit back, 10 days was the answer, it took 18 with alot of pushin
