Why Susan Boyd chose Charlevoix

My family has been coming to Charlevoix the Beautiful since the early 1900's. Purchasing Abide was a dream come true. I am happy that I can share my dream with you.

What makes this cottage unique

I love the peace of this little village, nesteled between Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. I love to ride my bike to the lake and go swimming early in the morning when no one else is around. Most evenings, my family and I watch the sunset together, while swimming, flying kites, playing football, building sand castles, or just simply abiding.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Abide to celebrate the last 10 years of marriage and couldn't have picked a better place. This cottage has history, charm, and is perfect for a couple that wants to enjoy time away.

Charlevoix is an amazing location! We fell in love with this town and all it has to offer. We loved everything about our stay and the people in Charlevoix. The cottage is in a great location, close to Lake Michigan, downtown, and can walk everywhere.

UNIQUE MEMORIES

  • 5 of 5

A week in Abide - the very definition of cozy and comfortable. The house is small, but provides perfectly adequate space and amenities for one or two adults. Loved the gas stove, "drawer"-style fridge/freezer and farmhouse sink in the kitchen. We enjoyed wonderful sleeps in the soft queen bed as summer breezes wafted in. The location is perfect - only a couple of minutes walk into the quaint downtown and just around the corner from the beach and spectacular sunsets. Charlevoix itself has so much to offer to visitors, and it's very close to other places of interest: Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Traverse City, Leland and area. Excellent places for food: we enjoyed the Bridge Street Tap Room's beer tasting, excellent fish from John Cross, an exquisite wine dinner at Chateau Chantal (Mission Peninsula) and a great breakfast at Smoke on the Water. Golfers will relish the challenge at Belvedere and particularly at Dunmaglas. One caution: you will see many tourists ("fudgies") who are understandably interested in the house, so be sure to keep the front door locked. One bold couple actually tried the door and would have walked right in! A small price to pay though for the privilege of spending time at Abide. Thank you, Susan!

Simply charming!

We absolutely loved it! It's a charming and very cozy cottage near Lake Michigan. The history behind the Earl Young homes is quite interesting as well. Looking forward to staying again next year during softball tournaments.

Wonderful Experience!

We rented this cottage as a Christmas present for my in-laws. It was the perfect little winter get-a-way! The cottage was so charming, and Susan was an absolute joy to work with! Thank you so much for the extra touches to make their stay special. :)

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This amazing little Earl Young cottage is so convenient to the beach and downtown Charlevoix. Most days we walked everywhere we went, and the house is perfect for two or three people. We loved being amongst all the amazing Earl Young homes in the area, even with all the tourists and picture takers! We are already looking forward to staying again next year!!

Enjoy a Sunday service by the lake, cool off in the musical fountian by the harbor, or visit the fish pond in East Park. Walk downtown and shop for fresh fruits and vegtables at the Farmer's Market, and browse the arts and craft shows. Your children will love our local summer camp at Mt. McSauba.
