About Bob Oles

We were both born and raised in Michigan and truly enjoy the four seasons that Michigan has to offer! Boating & golfing in the summer and skiing & snowboarding in the winter...a truly year round resort area. Lake Charlevoix is a short walk and Boyne Mountain is a short 15 minute drive away.

Bob Oles purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bob Oles chose Boyne City

Our cottage sits on a quiet lane and backs up to a golf course with shared Lake Charlevoix access. We feel anyone who stays here will thoroughly enjoy it and return again!

What makes this cottage unique

When we purchased this cottage...we fell in love with the high ceilings, quiet setting and its location - having access to the lake didn't hurt either. The home had been vacant for quite some time and we had fun restoring it back to life!

Extended Stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I rented the home in the summer and later for an extended stay for 3 months, Oct.-Dec., 2014.

We enjoyed our time there. The large lot is adjacent to a beautiful golf course with fantastic views. The heavily wooded area gives a feeling of seclusion but is not to far away from Boyne City and the Ironton Ferry for trips to Charlevoix. The large garage is great for storage and for keeping your vehicle in.

The large lower deck is nice for sitting and watching the golfers and makes for great entertaining because of the expansive built in seating.

The interior is in good condition and has adequate furniture and sleeping arrangements. Our son and wife loved the upper suite with the deck and private bath with a garden shower.

The kitchen was well stocked with many new items that Bob purchased. The appliances all worked well including the stacked washer and dryer. Basically you need not bring anything when renting except personal items; towels, linens, etc. are numerous.

The owner, Bob, was fantastic to deal with concerning any problems. One call and he took care of the concerns 100%.

Feel secure with this home rental and enjoy the area.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

This charming home set in the woods is a great place to relax and take in all the Boyne/Charlevoix area has to offer, which is plentiful. Bob and Mary are very welcoming hosts and always able to answer questions and provide suggestions as to area dining or activities. They have renovated this home and the décor is updated and like a B and B. We liked the open concept for the living/dining, and kitchen area. The big deck is great as well. It backs to a golf course so it's great for those that want to be close to a course. Early morning does bring the golf course lawnmowers near the back of the home but they aren't there for long. We have stayed here three times and enjoyed all our stays.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 generations - adult children and grandchildren) stayed here over the week of July 4. The home accommodated everyone nicely and had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing family vacation. It was a bonus to be able to bring our dog along. We especially enjoyed the back deck and having bonfires, playing at the beach (although the water was on the chilly side) and the guys took in a round of golf too. The home is tucked away down a quiet road next to the golf course - we missed it and drove right past the first time, even though we had directions! The beach is down across the main road, a nice walk, or a quick drive, and was enjoyable for building sand castles, flying kites and relaxing in the sun. The only down side, and not necessarily a bad thing, was that to the best we could tell, the nearest grocery store is about 20 minutes away. We have never been to this area before and discovered some fun things (holiday festivities in Boyne City, and the shops in Petoskey), but would love to come back and really explore the area better. Would definitely consider returning to this rental if we vacation in the area again and our family hasn't expanded too much.

Family Fun on Lake Charlevoix!

  • 5 of 5

This Lake Charlevoix home is AMAZING!!! Newly renovated, spacious, comfortable, smoke free and clean! Our family had a week long vacation here and we loved it! At this private home your family and friends will have the tranquility of Upper Michigan, view of the 6th hole - Ye Old Golf Course from the back porch, and access to the beautiful blue Lake Charlevoix across the street.

The french country kitchen is stocked for your cooking needs, and you can dine at the breakfast bar, dining room table or on the back porch. The family room has games, fire place and flat screen TV, with WIFI connectivity for your internet needs. There are two bedrooms on the first floor with a large bathroom that has a shower and a tub, for the little ones. The second floor has a lofted bedroom, private bathroom and private balcony. Hardwood floors are throughout the home, and a stack able washer/dryer set. The photos provided by the owners were great, but you have to see it to believe it!

The owners, Bob and Mary were excellent with the rental process and returned our deposit check promptly upon departing the vacation home. They were our personal concierges for the area and made sure we had everything needed for a wonderful vacation.

Downtown East Jordan is 5-10 minutes away and Boyne City is 4-5 miles down the road along the lake shore. We rented a boat from Captain Ron's for the day and explored on Lake Charlevoix. There are several marinas in the area for your rental needs, shops, restaurants, parks, play areas and so much more!

We would recommend this vacation home to our family and friends and plan to return for a future family vacation.

Thank you Bob and Mary for sharing your home with us! It was truly a blessing!
