This charming classic clapboard cottage on the South Arm of beautiful Lake Charlevoix is situated in the heart of Northern Michigan's Water Wonderland. Nestled in the woods and on the lake, this spot is quiet and cozy! This delightful little red gem has a sandy beach for superb swimming and beach fires, a dock for fishing, a screened in sleeping porch, and the great out of doors all around. Also, a bar-b-que is provided.
Sleeps 6. The master bedroom has a queen bed, private bath, two windows that face the lake and a walk-in closet. The sleeping porch, which also faces the lake, has two built-in single beds, ideal for kids or anyone under 6ft. tall. The living room has a queen size hide-a-bed and a queen size futon. The main bathroom is off of the living room and has a shower, along with a washer and dryer.
The family kitchen is large, cheery and well stocked; great for family gatherings, board games or just hanging out.
Other gathering spots include a lovely old fashioned garden with 4 adirondack chairs and an umbrella, a very large shaded lawn, a great sandy beach and of course, the dock!
A great place to relax, read, play, fish, swim, shop, dine in or out and make memories with your family and friends.

Great granddaughter of original owners and granddaughter of original builders. I live near by and am the caretaker along with my brother (who also lives in Charlevoix) and our families.
This cottage is my family heritage and is where my favorite lifetime memories were created. We grew up here during the summers enjoying camp fires, s'mores, swimming, fishing with my mom, waterskiing, reading under the shade trees and just plain being kids. Every day was an adventure! As an adult, I appreciate this unique setting even more. We would like to share this with you so that you and your family may create similar memories.
As you drive down the tree shaded drive, you can spot Mimi's red cottage at the end of the road. You step out of your car and take in a deep breath of fresh lake air. Walk through the garden into the country kitchen and immediately feel right at home. Don't bother to unpack, instead head down the expanse of lawn right to the lake. Walk out to the end of the dock, take another deep breath and RELAX! Your vacation has now begun!
Castle Farms is nearby with activities / shows/weddings every weekend. Strawberry, raspberry picking nearby at Kitely's farm. The Jordan River is great for canoeing and tubing. Lake Charlevoix is wonderful for swimming, fishing, skiing, kayaking, sailing, and most water sports. Petoskey stone hunting is a favorite past-time.
