Duke's Lake Retreat, on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix, is perfect for a family vacation or a group of friends getaway. The property is great for all seasons - the view of Lake Charlevoix transitions throughout the seasons, but remains the highlight of our home.
Winter: Easy access to tons of winter sports! 20 minutes to Boyne Mountain (downhill and cross country skiing, tubing, skating, Avalanche Bay waterpark, spa etc). Also, only 1/4 mile to state groomed snowmobile trails
Summer: 100 feet of lake shore on one of the largest and most pristine lakes in Northern Michigan. The South Arm (the smaller part of Lake Charlevoix) is perfect for water sports including sailing, jet skiing, tubing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing or cruising on a pontoon. Just a few nautical miles north, the South Arm opens up to the bigger part of Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan. Rent or bring a boat! This property features a dock that can accommodate up to a 26 foot boat. You can stay connected with the home's free wireless internet or 'unplug' yourself and put your feet up to relax with the calming sound of waves.
Fall: Color tours - including drives or bike rides through the Jordan Valley
Spring: As the snow melts and Northern Michigan starts to bloom, the spring brings a season of adventure. With fewer tourists, it is the perfect time for outdoor adventures (mushroom hunting!) or to explore the many places to eat, drink and be merry!
