About Barb Murray

Unlike a lot of people, I didn't grow up in the area nor had I ever been here until 2002. Friends invited me up for a visit almost every year and I fell in love with Charlevoix. As I got more and more familiar with the area, I grew to love it more than some of the neighboring communities.

Barb Murray purchased this cottage in 2007

Great downtown location for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upper floor Antique Quilt Cottage unit with our two energetic young boys during Venetian Week in Charlevoix and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. The location is absolutely perfect being both a few blocks walking distance to downtown, walking distance to the Lake Michigan beach, and very short driving distance to the other beaches on Lake Charlevoix. It is also just one block over from the beautiful public library that has an amazing children's area - don't miss it if you are coming with young kids. The apartment decor was beautiful and with high quality finishes often not found in rentals. The kitchen was superbly stocked with all those essential disposable items most rentals don't supply like paper towels, garbage bags, dish soap, etc. The bathroom towels were plush and plentiful. The unit also included use of beach towels and chairs and beach toys. And for the parents' pleasure in the evenings after putting the kids to bed, the tv had netflix! The owner was a great combination of very friendly and helpful while allowing us privacy. When she saw how much we liked to walk with our young boys she quickly pulled out a Little Tykes wagon from the basement that we pulled those happy boys around in for the rest of our visit. Our older son still talks about the "red cottage near the drawbridge", and we will surely be back for another stay!

We stayed in the Red Quilt Cottage and had a wonderful week. The cottage is charming--and the perfect base from which to explore Charlevoix and the area. The owner and manager were pleasant and very nice to work with. It is an easy walk from the cottage to the Lake Michigan beach, the downtown area, and the amazing public library. We had 3 generations of family, and the cottage was perfect for us. It is well-appointed, well-decorated, and well-maintained, inside and out. We especially loved the outdoor sitting areas, and I returned home wishing I had a place for a porch swing! We look forward to staying at the Red Quilt Cottage on our next visit to Charlevoix.

Perfect A++!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Red Quilt Cottage this July. The location was such that it was a short walk to town and Michigan Beach. The cottage was a great place to come back home to put your feet up. Perfect home in great setting and neighborhood. The owner has gone over and above to make her guests welcome!

It was hard to leave the Red Quilt Cottage and I look forward to returning to it next year.

Absolutely Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at The Antique Quilt Cottage for the last 4 years - need I say more?

This home is located walking distance to both Lake Michigan and the charming downtown Charlevoix.

It is lovely - comfortable beds, modern kitchen and baths, beautifully decorated, spacious, well equipped.

The owner of this home has thought of everything! The flowers and landscape make sitting outside delightful, and we spend many evenings around the firepit that the owner has provided. We travel with another couple and there is plenty of room for the 4 of us. I highly recommend this property! You won't be disappointed at all!
