This is what dreams are made of! This custom log home is situated on over an acre, elevated wooded lot surrounded by trees. Stroll through the woods to the deck overlooking stunning Lake Michigan. This home is located near some of the most beautiful white beach shoreline, located just North of Charlevoix.
Located only short walk to historic Michigan Avenue and downtown Charlevoix you can walk to town or choose to ride one of our several bikes, and be there in minutes!
No cost was spared in building this one of a kind log home, constructed with rare, enormous 1 1/2 foot wide Maple logs and 2 large field stone fireplaces that run floor to ceiling… this home is truly unique. Surround yourself with warm, custom touches throughout, including reclaimed hardwood flooring, forged iron hardware, 2 custom stone fireplaces, a 30' x 8' deck that overlooks the woods and Lake Michigan, deep seating, outdoor furniture and a free standing double hammock for those lazy afternoons listening to the waves lap against the shoreline. But we didn't stop there...the kitchen sports brand new, high-end stainless steel appliances; two coffee makers (pot and single serve), a commercial blender for afternoon margaritas and a fully supplied kitchen for the cook in you!
The living area is awash in handcrafted furnishings including leather seating, warm tones and wood furniture. Three floors of living space and an open floor plan make the home feel much larger than it is. The main level has the kitchen, two bedrooms with queen beds, a full bath, a large dining room and living room .
The third level is where the master suite is located; this VERY private level of the home has custom built closets, a claw foot tub, stand up shower and a king size bed with all new bedding including: high thread count sheets and brand new, designer bedding and hypoallergenic foam pillows. Just outside the master suite is a large reading loft and seating area great for reading or working.
The bottom floor is meant for kids! With two sets of custom log bunk beds, (queen over queen), a full bath, seating area to play the Wii or watch movies as well as a closet full of board games, playing cards and more! The bottom floor also has a walk out patio with seating and the custom field stone fireplace for those cool evenings.
There is plenty more outside, including a basketball hoop, stainless steel grill and custom detached wooden deck for roasting smores over the fire pit, lounging below the tree line or drinking wine with family and friends. Two car garage sports 4 adult bikes and one kid’s bike, and a myriad of outdoor games.
Also Included throughout: all new bedding with high thread count, designer bedding, hi-speed internet/wifi, cable TV, phone, washer and dryer, Wii, chairs for the beach, beach towels, coolers and a second refrigerator for drinks in the garage. You will want for nothing in this beautiful custom home.
I was raised in Michigan, but have lived in Dallas since 1993. I have always loved Charlevoix and have vacationed along Lake Michigan my entire life. Having this home in Charlevoix has always been my dream, and now my reality. We want to share our love of our Log Cabin and Charlevoix with others. It's such a rare find, and perfect setting. The best of both worlds includes proximity to town, yet privacy and wooded setting on the beach, is what makes this such a special home.
My husband is from San Antonio. He loves Charlevoix as much as I do and has a unique perspective on it's beauty! Our kids love being here but our active lives makes it impossible to spend the entire Summer here, so we are sharing it with you!

Location; privacy, proximity to the beach and downtown Charlevoix and over an acre of woods!
There is no warmer rental home in the area. Everything is very high quality.
Charlevoix is one of the most prestigious resort towns in the Midwest. Lake Charlevoix has been ranked the second mosts beautiful lake in the US just behind Lake Tahoe! Sleeping Bear Dunes (45 minutes away), was ranked by GMA as the MOST beautiful destination in the US. Mackinac Island is less than an hour drive, to the ferry in Mackinac City. From the beach access, you can walk south to the channel and pier and famous Charlevoix drawbridge, or North to Mt. McSauba State Park, which has miles of hiking trails, white sand beach , public beaches and amazing dunes.
