We are a family of 5, and love the outdoors. Skiing, boating, golf, fishing hunting you name it! This is a second home for us and we currently live in Spring Lake MI.

Matthew Isard purchased this cottage in 2010

We have both vacationed in northern MI as kids and have family in the surrounding area. Our intentions are to eventually retire on Lake Charlevoix and enjoy everything the area has to offer. But until then we want to share the opportunity with anyone else, to experience northern Michigan at its finest!

This home gives you the best of both worlds, the old style Northern Michigan cabin along with a quaint homely decorated 'A' frame.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE AND SANDY BEACH

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful, spacious cottage for a large family - grandparents, parents and grandchildren, 10 people in all. We found the place exactly as advertised and were pleased with the many pots, pans and refrigerator space. We like the extra beachtowels available and thought it one of the best vacation places we had ever been. Children and grandchildren enjoyed nearby windsurfing and paddle boarding and the farmers market in Boyne. We are definitely recommending this property to our friends.

GREAT LOCATION AND BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Our family returned to Lake Charleviox after a twenty-five year absence. Upon arrival we found the place clean and well maintained. The owner had a new refrigerator delivered during the week and was very responsive during the process. The two cabins worked very well for our group of ten.

We would definitely rent again if we return to northern MI.

SOME PROBLEMS

  • 2 of 5
One week at this rental on the lake proved to include too much cleaning for us. There was an abundance of dead insects and dust in cupboards and dresser drawers. A shower of flies poured down when we opened the living room blinds. And there was no excuse for the dishes, flatware, pots and pans having encrusted food on them. One of the frying pans was put away with scrambled eggs still in it! Although this rental has a "no pet" policy, we found clumps of white fuzzy pet hair everywhere and a strong odor of eau de wet dog in the bedding of one bedroom. We spent the first day washing all of the dishware, dusting bugs and debris (screws, nails, hair, parts of toys etc.) out of drawers/cabinets and sweeping up dog hair.

On the positive side, our family reunion of nine enjoyed the nice beach and canoe (provided by the owner). The location is great, and we rented paddle boards from Summertime Rentals in Ironton.

It would have been nice to have the refrigerator in the cabin working with this large a crowd. The A frame frig was already partially filled with items from the owners so space was tight. The owner tried to get the frig repaired, but it was not done until after we left. He also let us know where the key to the shed was so we could turn on the hot water in the cabin.

Bottom line, this is a nice place if cleaned properly. It irritated us to have to prepay a hefty cleaning fee and then have to do most of the yucky cleaning ourselves. Don't be the first renters of the season!

PS: Although VRBO suggests paying by credit card or PayPal, this was not an option with this owner who accepted only checks.

Owner's Response: We apologized for any inconvenience, talked to the cleaning service and advised them of the issues. They responded to me after addressing the issues and didn't find the complaints to be quite to this magnitude (flies, pet hair/smell and dishes). We have 2 refrigerators (1 in cabin and 1 in A frame) The cabin fridge was brand new and was replaced the week later under warranty. We strive to give all of our renters a nice clean place with all the amenities need to enjoy their stay. As you can see with past review our place has been enjoyed by many and has always been clean. We do not accept any type of credit card due to the fees associated with it. This was explained to the renter prior to them renting the property.

RELAXING!

  • 5 of 5
This place is one of a kind because of the seclusion and frontage! No surprises and as-described. We really enjoyed the beach and the cottages. The A-frame is tastefully decorated and has high end furniture and the cabin is rustic, but perfect. Beds were very comfortable. My family and friends loved the place and we look forward to making it our annual summer get-away!

Thank you for allowing us to stay.

SUMMER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful location on Lake Charlevoix. Plenty of room for multiple families made for a nice vacation. We enjoyed the privacy, sandy beach, beautiful sunrises, boating, golf and much more. Our days were filled with lake activity, water sports, local attractions followed by evening camfires on the beach. A relaxing vacation with all the amenities and comforts of home and much more. Already made our reservation for next year! Thanks Matt you have a beautiful place!

TOP NOTCH ACCOMMODATION !!

  • 5 of 5
We took our two family's and 6 kids (ages 3-8) and had the time of our lives! The "cabin" as Matt calls is is Northern Michigan at its best! A very rustic warm feeling, and the cottage that its attached to is beautiful to say the least. Sandy beaches, privacy and crystal clear water. The place was very clean and everything was there that was needed to make it a enjoyable stay. We were very surprised to see how much Boyne City had to offer! in fact we took a vote on the way home and decided that Boyne City won over Charlevoix! I would highly recommend this place for any multi family or large family get away. See you next year!
