Fantastic 2800 sq ft cottage in the heart of Lake Charlevoix!

It will become your 'home away from home' to if you are looking for a high quality location that offers a gambit of activities with a real feeling of relaxation and peacefulness.

Tri-level, brown cedar cottage built in arts and crafts style. Please see the entire listing for more information about this stunning waterfront retreat!

110 yard long dock that includes (2) manual jetski lifts as well as 6,000 lb boat lift for run about's and deck boats to 24'. (Pontoons will need to be moored)

About Tim McCain

As my wife grew up in Michigan and spent most of her summers at Grandparents cottages mid state, it was only natural that while looking for a summer home in 2005, that we looked Up North.

After an exhaustive search, we found a quaint blue cottage that sat on a beautiful piece of waterfront property with a babbling brook that ran thru it.

Needless to say, we were sold and once in the cottage, the quaint 963 sq. ft. was not enough as visitors came from far and wide.

Tim McCain purchased this house in 2005

Why Tim McCain chose East Jordan

After purchasing the cottage in 2005, we basically rebuilt from the ground up with the highest quality builder in the area with warmth and usefulness in mind.

Two story home that features a lower level that sleeps most guests and a master bedroom area that is split away boasting a steam shower and flat-screen TV.

What makes this house unique

Just a tremendous opportunity for a family or group that wants a warm, inviting place to spend some days of relaxation and happiness. A great home base in the middle of a lot of activities!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeous property with plenty of room! Great views! Kids loved the size of the yard and made good use of it. Sandy beach area is bigger than advertised. Nothing but good things to say about the property, owner, and caretaker. You will not be disappointed with this house.

Pure Michigan!

This is a beautiful home on a beautiful lake in a beautiful part of Michigan!

The owners were very helpful, responded to all of our questions quickly and made the rental process a breeze. On the day of our arrival we were met with the owner's local agent who was very nice and helpful in walking us through the home and explaining all of the home's details. While we did not need to contact him during our stay, we were given his cell phone number (and had the owner's cell phone number) just in case.

The home was well equipped and had everything we needed for our family of five and so much more! The landscaping was beautiful and the kids enjoyed the creek and visiting the frog friends they found there each day.

Lake Charlevoix is a gorgeous lake and small enough to navigate easily but large enough to be not too busy or noisy with boat traffic. The home is located on a "rough" part of the lake and does not have a mooring buoy. We rented a pontoon boat from Summertime Rentals in Charlevoix (very helpful and highly recommended) but after they inspected the home's dock, they would not let us dock at the house for fear of damage to the boat. We docked it a few minutes drive away in Advance for $10 a day. Not a big deal but do yourself a favor and bring/rent a power boat and/or jet skis and use the lifts available at the home.

The beach was large enough for our three kids (14, 11, 10) to play in and many a sand castle was built and destroyed in battle. The entrance to the lake from the beach is rocky but look closely and you will find many Petoskey stones to collect and treasure. We swam in the "rough" (not really rough at all) lake almost every day and enjoyed swimming to and diving off of the yellow island platform.

The location of the home was perfect and ideal for traveling to Charlevoix (via the neat Ironton Ferry) Boyne City, Boyne Mountain, Petoskey, Traverse City, Mackinac Island, etc..

Thank you so much to the owners for sharing your special home with us!

We would highly recommend this vacation home to all!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the time taken to post this review! Sorry the pontoon could not be moored at the dock, and we will make sure to look into that...but beyond that, it sounded like you had an awesome time. Thanks again and always welcome.

Beautiful house with lake access

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful Lakehouse. The pictures do not do the house justice! The house was well laid out so we all had privacy. The kitchen was great for cooking for several people. The house had everything we needed (games, towels, kayak, etc). You could tell the owner put a lot of thought into the house. We highly recommend and would consider returning next year!

Perfect waterfront location as home base. Only an hour and a half to the Traverse City Airport or Mackinac Island Ferry Boats.

Great location to be completely active or stay at the cottage and enjoy down time together.

During the summer months, Charlevoix, Boyne City and East Jordan do a great job of having a ton of activities from Craft Fairs, to jet Boat Races to Sailing Races all only minutes away and/or right outside your porch!

One of the secrets of East Jordan is a great six mile kayak experience down one of the cleanest rivers in the north, East Jordan River.

If you need to go into 'the big city', Petoskey is only 30 minutes NE. Walmart, Kmart, Home Depot, Bed-Bath & Beyond and the Odawa Casino!

The great thing about Northern Michigan is how long the days are! Many times a Sunset Cruise on the boat and an Ice Cream run is the perfect way to end the day.

No boat? That's OK...You can still cross the smallest ferry in the Northwest (Ironton Ferry) and head into Charlevoix to get some Kilwin's Ice Cream and walk down the board walk to the Light House at the end of the Pier and Lake Michigan Beach.

Boyne City has 'Dancing in the Streets' most Friday evenings and a host of activities and great restaurants for your enjoyment.

East Jordan is a quaint smaller city south of the cottage that has some nice activities and a bowling alley if the mood strikes you!

Also, there is a 'Freedom Festival' at the end of June.

Traverse City, again, is roughly an hour and a half from the cottage and has many other activities to enjoy. Sugar Beaches along with a fantastic number of wineries

Shopping down main-street Traverse City is a blast and there is so much to do...
