Overview

Boyne City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

LOCATION, LOCATION! The best view of Lake Charlevoix from the swing of this charming Cottage's porch on Front Street's 'Golden Mile' OR out the door and across the street to the Marina where you've rented a slip OR 3 blocks walk to this Premier Main Street community's small town festivities, concerts, farmer's market, restaurants OR a 4 mile drive to Boyne Mountain resort and spa OR a few minutes more to many quaint cities or harbor towns all the way up to just a 45 minute drive to catch the Ferry to Mackinac Island for the day!

This family cottage is complete with all the comforts and conveniences you could dream of while still packed with loads of cottage charm. The adults will find the two main floor master suites (queen beds) a nice respite after a full day of activities and the kids or an extra family will beg to return every year when they climb the winding stairway to the 3rd bedroom / sleeping loft- appropriately named the 'orphanage' with it's 1 full bed, SIX twins, and one youth / crib, the whole room painted in Boyne City FUN!

Just kick back and watch the sun sink into the lake night after night from the front porch or grill, have s'mores with the family in the private patio/garden in the fenced back yard, after a big day of anything you choose to do from sports to splash year-round fun in this small town, simple-life atmosphere ...have your cake AND eat it too...in this family memory making cottage on the lake!

About Russ and Marcia Baugh

We have 6 kids, 3 of them adopted, two are former grandsons and one of them is Ugandan. We are missionaries helping orphans and widows (grannies) to survive and thrive in Uganda East Africa. When we're not in Boyne City, we're living in the 'bush' near the Nile River, in Nasuti Uganda!

Russ and Marcia Baugh purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Russ and Marcia Baugh chose Boyne City

We are born and raised Michiganders from Southwest Michigan....when we began our second phase of life in the mission fields of Africa...we sold out of the busy down-state life to own a piece of the UP-NORTH dream...heaven IS a little closer in a house by the LAKE :)

What makes this cottage unique

We are a walk or a short drive away from anything our heart desires YEAR 'round!...who could ask for anything more?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Family Cottage Owners,



We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at your lovely cottage! In fact, none of us were ready to come home just yet! Your decorating skills are absolutely wonderful. The cottage was so charming and felt like home.

We rented a slip for our boat at The Harborage Marina and it worked out great having it accessible just across the street. Your Cottage manager was very pleasant and accommodating. Only recommendation would be to have roasting sticks for marshmallows & hotdogs for the firepit! we got creative and made some out of wire hangers - ha ha!

Thanks again for sharing your cottage. God bless!

P.S. The kids loved the orphanage and we heard lots of giggles coming from up there throughout the nights! Good times!

weekend of warmth

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home this is! We just returned from a ski weekend with our four children. I was worried that the cottage would feel small, but it was perfect--space for everyone. The cottage was clean, and charming, inside and out. It had everything we needed, and more. When looking for a movie to watch in the drawer by the television we discovered puzzles. It had been years since we had completed a large puzzle. My husband and I plowed into it, and our children followed. What a blessing! Perfect quality family time--close enough to Boyne Mountain Resort for a great ski weekend, but perfect location to feel away from it all. The children's room was an escape for our four monsters--truly they felt like they had a place of their own. The sitting room with gas fireplace and view of the lake was magnetic; we consistently gathered there. All in all it was a great rental!

Owner's Response: A retreat for quality FAMILY time is our focus...so you've given us the highest compliment by your "family-time" review... so creative of you to title it a 'weekend of warmth' when the temps were below zero OUTSIDE and the city mandated to keep water running, LOL! ...thank you and please hurry back :)

Polar Vortex Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay during some of the coldest, snowiest weather. We had two families consisting of 4 adults and 5 children ages 3 to 7 and never felt like we were on top of each other. The children loved the "Orphanage" upstairs and chose to spend much of their time there. The adults enjoyed to cozy front room where we sat by the fire and watched the snow pile up on the lake. Even during the Polar Vortex, the home never felt cold or drafty. It is cheerfully decorated with fun colors, comfortable furniture, and the kitchen is well stocked with everything a person who cooks often would need.The house is very conveniently located; Just a few blocks from town and a quick drive to Boyne Mountain. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again. My only suggestion: Families with little children may want to bring a baby gate for the the top of the orphanage stairs. It is a winding metal staircase to the first floor and there was a little concern of children trying to come down them in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, or nightmares, etc.

Owner's Response: Great suggestion Polar Vortex families! We will try to make that happen before your next visit. We think you guys win the prize for turning the 'extreme' up-north conditions into an 'extremely' fun family weekend ;) We hope you hurry back!

Excellent vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a perfect fit for our family get together over New Years. There is plenty of space for relaxing, meals and sleeping. It was a quick trip to Boyne Mt and to local area restaurants. I would highly recommend this and look forward to renting again in the near future.

The owners are very nice and emailed questions were answered quickly.

Beautiful and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

loved the fact that there were gathering places on the front porch and on the back patio. The cottage is beautiful and comfortably laid out. Only surprise was lack of screens to get fresh air and the fact entry to the Orphanage is through the Master bedroom. But we loved it and will return.

Up North

  • 5 of 5

Perfect convenient location for visiting family at the Harborage and hanging out Up North. Came with my three children and each brought a friend, ages 19-25. Plenty of room for all. The kids made a fire every night in the backyard and we would all sit around till the wee hours and make smores. Not once were any of the T.V.'s turned on which is very unusual for this age, the kids also spent a good deal of time sitting around the table playing cards when we weren't out on the water. I did prune your rose bushes out front so hopefully will continue to produce beautiful pink flowers for a while. I also clipped some low hanging branches over and around the driveway, hope that was o.k. This place met my expectations and I would definitely come back again. Thanks for letting us share your home.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We all had such an amazing time. The cottage was perfect for both our families. Everything was clean and decorated so nice, very comfortable. We loved our time in the evening watching the sunsets from the porch, so beautiful! We did that just about every night. During the day we had plenty to do. Our children's ages ranged from 7 - 17 and fun was had by all. We rented a boat and tube from Josh at One Water Street, went rafting down the Jordan River, bikes in Petoskey and visited Mackinac Island for a day.....highly recommend all of these activities as well as this cottage. The quaint town of Boyne has very good restaurants. To name a few, Red Mesa, Cafe Sante, Thick and Juciy were just a few of our favorites. Once again had a wonderful vacation!
