Boyne City House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Home On Beautiful Lake Charlevoix

A perfect private getaway, sleeps 5-7 people, great for a family or 2 couples with kids. Our home has panoramic views from a large deck overlooking Lake Charlevoix and a charming covered porch with lots of comfortable seating. This spring we have added a tiki bar with the best view on the lake! Relax on your private sandy beach and have a bonfire in the fire pit. You can tie your boat to the mooring ball at the end of the dock or bring or rent kayaks to explore the lake. It is a five minute drive or bike ride to downtown Boyne City, a premier Main Street Community, where you can enjoy the many small town festivities, concerts, farmers market, restaurants, or Stroll the Streets on Friday nights. Drive 6 miles to Boyne Mountain resort and spa, with world class golf, water park, and skiing, or just 45 minutes to catch the ferry to Mackinaw Island for the day! This family cottage is complete with all the comforts and conveniences you will need, a well-stocked kitchen with everything required for cooking and dining as well as a gas grill and patio tables for barbecuing. There are 2 large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has a queen bed and a twin bed with a private half bath. There is a full bath between the 2 bedrooms with a large walk-in shower and lots of vanity space and storage. The living room has plenty of seating with amazing views of the lake, the dining table seats 6, and there is a sun/family room with an extra table and seating area, and a queen size sofa bed. The kitchen, dining room and sun room also have unbelievable views of Lake Charlevoix. There is a washer and drier and we provide plenty of linens and towels, and paper products to start you out. If you rent for ski season, keep your car warm and dry in our attached 2 car garage, with lots of room for skis, boots, and equipment. We are only 15 minutes from Boyne Mountain, and minutes away from several cross country ski trails. All you need are your clothes and food for a week of relaxation and fun, or a season of skiing!

About Barbara Ellwanger

We live and work in Boyne City year round, and moved here several years ago because we love the area & enjoy boating, golfing, and skiing. We actually met while skiing at Boyne, and were married at the top of Aspen Mountain 9 years ago. We only live 4 miles away, on the other side of the lake, so we are always available for any questions or information about the area. We love Boyne City and Lake Charlevoix and there is no place else on earth we would choose to live!

Barbara Ellwanger purchased this house in 2012

Why Barbara Ellwanger chose Boyne City

We purchased this house in Sept of 2012. Known as the 'pink house', it is a landmark for local boaters and fishermen, so we have decided to keep it's unique color. It was a well-loved and maintained home so we have only had minimal sprucing up, painting and decorating to do. As we are both do-it-yourselves, this has been a fun project that we both enjoy. We recently worked on some fun additions to the large deck, including a tiki bar and a palm tree! We would like this to be the kind of place we would pick ourselves for a vacation away from home.

Family Style

  • 5 of 5
The "Pink House" was perfect for us. We had a family gathering at Whiting Park and needed somewhere to stay. It really did feel like home while we were there. The patio was a great place for all of us to relax after a long day at the park. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to relax, but if I did that the word might get out and then it would be booked so that it wouldn't be available for me! Just kidding, It really was great! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had two couples there for the weekend. The location is beautiful, the cottage, clean, neat, comfortable and move-in ready! The garage was handy as we had rain one day and could come and go with cover. Will recommend to friends and will rent again!

The Pink House

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I spent one week at The Pink House and had a wonderful time enjoying the weather, food, sunsets and friends. The house is beautifully appointed and leaves the renter wanting for nothing. The beds and furniture were comfortable, the kitchen is equipped with all the gadgets and appliances one needs to prepare a meal. Everything in the house was clean and in good condition. This was indeed a home away from home. We were sad to leave after a week and plan to visit again. The owners were particularly cordial, met us at the house when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. The area around Boyne City provided beautiful sighseeing opportunities and shopping. I would recommend Boyne City and the Pink House to anyone looking for rest and relaxation.

best winter of our life's

best winter of our life's
  • 5 of 5
I rented the pink house for ten weeks this past winter. The two car garage made life so easy not having to deal with the weather conditions in northern Michigan while unloading food or kids. We left our ski equipment on site and only brought food on the weekends. We eat family meals after skiing at Boyne . The kitchen was well equipped to handle a family meal or a fancy dinner party. The best part of the vacation was waking up every morning and having breakfast over looking Lake Charlevoix. Boyne city is 5 minutes away and they offer some of the best places to eat in the state of Michigan. They also have a washer and dryer on site we did our laundry every weekend and when you are working full time & have a family of five it was big plus. It was relaxing, and it had all the comforts of home. The beds and bedroom were very comfortable. The kids had there space to sleep and we had ours. And the two bathrooms worked out well. It was a great winter in northern Michigan. I wish you were there:) Pure Michigan at its finest!

We rented this house for several weeks so we could ski at Boyne, and it was perfect for us. The house was spotless and had everything we needed for my husband and I and our 2 teenage sons. There were lots of towels and extra bedding & a washer & drier, and the kitchen was set up with everything we could want. There was plenty of room for our sons to spread out and large closets for storage. The views of Lake Charlevoix were outstanding even when it was frozen over. It makes us want to come back in the summertime and tie our boat out front, and enjoy the beach and the large deck and porch. The attached 2 car garage was a nice plus for coming in and out of the cold and storing our ski equipment. It was also close to Boyne City, so we could enjoy the nice restaurants and activities there. We loved it!

Three kids (one pre0teen) and two adults the Pink House accommodated us quite well. It is fully equipped with everything you need. The view out any window was beautiful. Easy drive into town, Avalanche mountain and Boyne Mountain. We will certainly be back!
