About Ted Macksey

Our families have been coming to this area since we were both kids! Then as life would have it, we both met at Boyne Mountain in 1990, and knew that we both wanted to live here some day! We owned lake front up here for many years and traveled up every weekend from downstate, then finally moved up here 5 years ago permanently! Our dream come true! Life is good!

Ted Macksey purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ted Macksey chose Boyne City

Close to everything! We moved our business up here from downstarte and have been looking for real estate for our business for years. Then we were blessed to find the perfect lakefront spot with a condo with an amazing view in the building... So, we have the best of both worlds now! We have the perfect location for our business, and a fabulous condo to let our parents enjoy while visitng and can share with others to enjoy what we live everyday! Life is good!

Perfect - divine location, great decor

  • 5 of 5

I'm currently sitting on the red sofa in the pictures. This place is great! It's really beautiful, and the kitchen has full trim if you feel like cooking. I'm here with just my wife and we have waaaay too much room. It's really designed for four, could do six without much fuss, and is technically an eight sleeper with four beds. The location is absolutely perfect - it's next to the river, and directly across from the waters of Lake Charlevoix. Anything in town is literally under two blocks away. The morel festival was this week, and this place is across the street from it - you can watch it from your perch, and it's quite fun. We're here for four days, doing the mushroom festival, boyne mountain biking, kayaking, mackinaw island, and hitting up the local restaurants, and we've been completely happy since anything is at most a 10 minute drive. I highly recommend this place, and it's so great my wife wants to move up here!

Single gripe : Shower stays warm about 12 minutes. Plenty, but don't dawdle. The owner agreed it seemed short and was going to check it out. Five stars regardless, this place is worth every penny and more.

Oh yeah : Double bonus - the internet is blazing fast. I'm a tech guy on vacation and it was reaaaally nice considering cell and 3G/4G service is spotty up here.

Great Boyne City location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location...you can walk or bike to everything. Wonderful view of Lake Charlevoix. Well decorated, neat, and clean little condo. Good for a couple or a couple with 2 small children. At times can be a bit noisy[traffic], but you get used to it. Owners Ted and Pam are great hosts!

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lakefront property will make you feel right at home. The tasteful European décor and high quality furnishings/bedding were wonderful. The owner was so accommodating and kind, making sure everything was to our liking. I would definitely recommend this property and plan to stay here in the future on our visits to the Boyne area.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this condo while in Boyne for a family reunion and it was perfect! There are great restaurants and friendly shops all within walking distance. The view of the lake is fantastic and the beach is just steps away. We loved sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee and letting our cares just drift away. We felt right at home in this comfy and charming place. The hosts were most helpful in giving us tips on places to see and things to do along with making sure all our needs were met. It was just the two of us so we had more than enough room. I would definitely recommend this to our friends for a great place to stay.

Nice Unit - As Long as Expectations Are Set

  • 4 of 5

Let's start with the good. The owners are great and will try to accommodate your every need - no matter how large or small. That is really a huge benefit and should not be overlooked. The unit itself is nice, clean and "cozy". The view is to die for - looking right out onto Lake Charlevoix and a marina. You are definitely in the center of everything so expect it to be noisy. There are plenty of pillows, blankets, towels etc. Kitchen is equipped well, but not great especially if you are baking.

Now for the disadvantages. First and foremost this is not really a 2 bedroom unit. It has 1 bedroom on one side of the unit and the other room (across the steps) is the living room, dining room, kitchen and bath which also doubles as the 2nd bedroom. This unit is cozy - meaning limited space. Don't get me wrong, every inch of space is utilized almost to a fault. There is no room to store suitcases, or much else.

The bedroom has 1 chest of drawers and basically 1/3 of a closet even though there are 2 queen-size bunk beds in the room. The ladder to get to the top bunk is difficult to access as you have to step over the dresser to get up or down. And don't even think of sitting up in bed while in the top bunk, it is not going to happen without a serious head injury. Closet and drawer space are at a premium.

This unit states it will sleep 8. Unless you are really, really comfortable with the other folks in your party, 8 is a serious push. 2 queen beds in the undersized bedroom with limited closets/storage will sleep 4. Murphy bed sleeps 2 and sleeper sofa in the same room sleeps 2 more. In order to utilize the sleeper sofa you have to move the coffee table to get the bed to open. With the sleeper sofa open and the bed pulled down there is little room to maneuver. Oh, and there is only 1 bathroom and no dresser in the living room.

The layout is important to understand. You are on the 2nd floor of a retail business. While it didn't happen often, the phone does ring at odd hours at the downstairs business and can be heard upstairs. Also, there are a fair number of steps to get to the 2nd floor "condo" which is not really a condo but an apartment.

No ice maker in fridge is a disadvantage as is the noise from the Eagle's lodge right next door.

As long as you understand the layout and the limitations the unit has, you will likely be prepared to enjoy the unit. I had a different expectation which is why I wanted to comment on the layout.

Owner's Response: This is the first comment we have ever received regarding storage... Everyone else has let us know that there was plenty. It appears that this party had a baby or two with them, and I remember all of the extras we had to bring along with us when we traveled, so I relate can relate to that comment ;) We tell every one that our vacation rental is above our 1 person office, which is on the first floor. We own a I person real estate company and this is my husbands office. He is not there much as he usually is out side of the office dong business. This unit is right down town and is in the center of everything. There are 2 cabinets on each side of the murphy bed and 2 closets in the living and kitchen and living areas for our guest's use, as well as an 18 inch hanging area and a dresser in the back bedroom. The kitchen is fully stocked, but if someone were into doing a lot of baking, I will probably consider adding some more. Again, this is the first time I have heard of this concern, so I appreciate the feed back. We do everything we can to accommodate our guests. I explain the layout in detail to our guests when they inquire. There is one bedroom separate, but there is a queen sized murphy bed and queen sleeper in the living room, which doubles as the 2nd sleeping room, but there is no way to list this on the vrbo site, so I explain it when talking to those inquiring about our rental. It does sleep 8, but I tell guests that that is a squeeze, and it is most comfortable with 4 to 6. Yes, you do have to move the coffee table forward when using the sleeper, as you would any sleeper with a coffee table in front of it, and yes it does become tighter when both beds are fully extended, but this is only at night when the beds are pulled out, and in the day, they both fold back. I really appreciate this feed back from our guests which will help us make any improvements for future guests. Thank you.

Perfect Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent a long weekend here. The location is absolutely perfect! Condo looks out over Lake Charlevoix, walking distance to great restaurants and shops. Also it is a 7-10 minute drive to Boyne Mountain. The accommodations are quaint and comfy. The owners go above and beyond to make sure that you stay is a great one!! We will definitely be back! So glad we decided to take a chance staying off (Boyne) property.
