Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 People)

Beautiful fully equipped home built in the last 10 years is located in a development on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix and offers many amenities for your summer vacation. Located between Charlevoix and East Jordan, the home is located on a heavily wooded lot with lakefront access that includes a beach house, a sandy beach with a gradual slope for safe swimming and a raft for your use. Adjacent to the 2,700 sq/ft home is a large fire pit for campfires and a sand volleyball court. On the rear of the home is a sunroom that opens to a large deck with a new propane oversized BBQ grill and a patio set for your enjoyment. The home also has wi-fi service for your use.

The home has a fully equipped kitchen with a Kitchenaid built in convection oven and microwave, a Jenn-Air island cook top that includes 4 burners and a grill, an Elite side-by-side refrigerator with an ice dispenser, a built-in Maytag dishwasher and a food disposal. Sitting on the granite countertops is a coffee maker, a toaster and a blender. The kitchen table seats 6, while 4 more can be seated on the adjacent island countertop. The dinning room table can seat another 8 people. The home is entirely trimmed out with oak baseboards, moldings and interior six panel doors.

The first floor of the home offers hardwood floors with a 60+ inch television for your enjoyment. Although the home is air conditioned, all rooms offer ceiling fans. All 3 baths come with ceramic tiles and Corian countertops, with the master bathroom also offering a Jacuzzi. The first floor has 3 sofas and a fully equipped laundry room.

The home has ample parking in its' circular driveway and along a quiet neighborhood street. The neighborhood offers a beach house on the lakefront which has multiple picnic tables and another fire pit beside the beach. As the home is located on the second lot from the lake access, you easily can be on the beach in a couple of minutes. In the garage, we have both bicycles(3) and kayaks(3) available for your use. As the driveway leading to the home is circular, and heavily landscaped, it will not accommodate a personal boat in terms of parking.

About Greg Kehoe

Both of us are life long Michiganders, with my wife having grown up in Muskegon, and I in Detroit. We eventually settled in the northern suburbs of Detroit where we raised four children.

Greg Kehoe purchased this house in 2004

Why Greg Kehoe chose Northern Michigan

For the better part of ten years we had been looking for a location along the west coast of Michigan to build our eventual retirement home. This location outside of Charlevoix put us close to that resort community, plus offered many recreational activities throughout the year. Being just steps from the water is also what attracted us to this area.

What makes this house unique

The home, and 100% of it contents, were all purchased new when the home was built. Quite often people will build a second home up north and furnish it with worn items from their primary home. Not the case here! Also as the floor plan is entirely open no one ever feels isolated in one part of the home. Once you arrive at the home, you'll immediately notice it's strong curb appeal as we've planted 1000's of perennials over the last ten years.

Peaceful and Pleasant Home in Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time in five years that my family and I have stayed at this beautiful home in the peaceful environs of Lake Charlevoix, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again in the future. The home is exactly as pictured and offers a comfortable and spacious location for family get-togethers and summer fun and relaxation. The owners are very diligent about maintenance and are a pleasure to work with. There is plenty to do in the area, from utlilizing the property's three kayaks at the nearby beach to taking the short jaunt into nearby Charlevoix, Boyne City, and Petoskey for sightseeing and other fun. Lake Charlevoix is a beauty! Try renting a pontoon boat for an afternoon of special delights! You can dine in at the well-equipped home or try one of the many nice restaurants in any of these cities. There is golf, jet skiing, shopping, sunset watching, and more to keep everyone entertained. There are public beaches at both Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix that young and old will enjoy. And after a day of busy exercise, the big couch is a comfy spot for the whole family to relax on while watching a movie together. For a lovely up-north trip, this home is a great option!

Owner's Response: It nice to know that our home lived up to your expectations and the fond memories you had of it from 5 years ago. As we plan on retiring in the home in the near future, and want our guests to feel as comfortable as do when visiting, we make the extra effort to insure that the home is well maintained. We're glad to hear that you really your stay with us this year and hope you consider staying again in the future.

Perfect for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfectly maintained, and perfect for everyone to stretch out and relax. Four large bedrooms; 3 full baths; family room; sun room; living room; dining room; eat in kitchen; laundry---it is perfect for multi-generations! Six adults and 1 teenager had a great time kayaking, cycling, hiking, and traveling around the area. The location is great to get to so many places, events, restaurants. The owner is proud of his home, and it shows in how well everything is organized and maintained. Volleyball net; fire pit; easy beach access, and large back deck only add to the enjoyment of this home. This was the first time we used VRBO, and we could not have picked a better choice. Thank you Greg and Marlene.

Owner's Response: Glad this work out so well for you. Both of us have a lot of pride in this home as we were the general contractors who built it over a 3 year period. The open floor plan just lends itself to family gatherings while still providing some private space when required. Often mention that once we get to this area of the State, and into this home, find it awfully easy to relax and leave our worries behind us!

Beautiful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Being from Ohio, we have rented homes in Michigan for years, each time trying to improve on the last rental. As the family grows, our need for space increases. This is the most beautiful home we have rented to date. The furnishings are comfortable and the rooms clean and spacious. Beach access is right next door and the bicycles, kayaks, fire pit, etc. make for an entertaining stay. We all loved this vacation "home away from home" and would certainly choose it again. Also, the owners were gracious beyond compare.

Owner's Response: Hi Martha, Glad to hear that you and your family members enjoyed your stay. Unlike some vacation properties, this home was specifically built for our retirement and we maintain it in a manner that will be comfortable for anyone who visits. Each Spring, we spend a week shampooing carpets, cleaning the hardwood floors, dry cleaning all the bedding and curtains to insure that everyone who visits has a memorable experience. It's a retreat that we always look forward to visiting as do many of our relatives and friends.
