East Jordan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Comfortably Sleeps 6

Enjoy lake living in this cozy loft-styled Lake Charlevoix cottage. Totally renovated in 2001, this 1100 square foot home offers all the amenities of home and more. Double sliding glass doors open up right on water. Your drive into the Jordan Valley in the Fall is spectacular as the hardwoods show off their colors in the Fall. If you're a boater, you'll love being just steps from a full-service marina, but feel free to tie up your boat to our cottage dock.

Great swimming for small children: shallow & sandy bottom. Small deck right on the seawall is great for sipping morning coffee! Outside you'll find a wonderful shade tree, BBQ grill and fire pit ready for family fun.

Autumn on the South Arm: Autumn is spectacular on Lake Charlevoix, one of Northern Michigan's most beautiful inland lakes. Take in the beautiful fall colors as you drive through the Jordan Valley or take a canoe or raft trip down the Jordan River. Cozy up next to the fireplace on cold nights and enjoy coffee dockside on sunny fall mornings.

Location! Location! Location! This cottage is situated in the middle of it all. By land, it is just 20 minutes from Charlevoix, 20 minutes from Boyne, 30 minutes from Gaylord and 45 minutes from Petoskey. If fine dining is in your plan, you'll be thrilled to learn that The Rowe Inn is just minutes away in Ellsworth.

Not ready for fall fun? Think ahead to the winter wonderland of Northern Michigan. For skiers, Boyne Mountain is just 20 minutes away, and snowmobilers will find groomed trails just steps from the cottage door.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this cottage over Labor Day weekend and was extremely pleased with the location, cleanliness, and friendly neighbors. It is completely updated and very fresh and open but with the privacy for bedrooms that many cottages do not have. I plan on going there again once the leaves begin their show. It is only 45 minutes from Traverse City and so easy to get to from lower MIchigan.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I found exactly what we were looking for in East Jordan. We enjoyed a very relaxed and eventful week. We boated, floated, fished, and did lots of sightseeing. The cottage is modern and nicely situated with all of the amenities you would need. The location of the cottage is perfect for exploring the area. We toured the Jordan Valley, kayaked the Jordan River and traveled to Boyne Country, Charlevoix, and Walloon Lake. I also trailered my boat to a couple of nearby lakes for some additional great fishing. What a nice time. We highly recommend this property.

Beautiful and Clean

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us. The cottage was very clean, and decorated beautifully, and stocked with all the necessities. It was very nice to be able to sit out back, have a bonfire and enjoy the lake. We hope to return next year.

Wonderful Place! We had a fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay! The cottage is clean and so nicely decorated and has every amenity to provide a relaxing weekend on the lake! The cottage sits right on the water offering breath taking views, gorgeous sunrises and a bonfire pit for sitting fireside on the lake singing campfire songs and star gazing, we even heard the loons! We also utilized the bbq grill for a delicious cook out. The cottage is centrally located for any scenic drive of Northern Michigan. We traveled into Boyne City and visited their Farmers Market and also took a Sunday drive through Charlevoix, Traverse City and over to Glen Arbor. What a fabulous weekend we had, we highly recommend a stay here! Thank you for such a great place to stay...

we will be back!

Beautiful, Charming, Serene,

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in October, 2014, and could not recommend this place any higher. As soon as I walked in the door, I felt a relaxing peace in this charming, beautiful decorated cottage. The tall ceilings and open views took my breath away. Honestly, I could not think of one negative thing to say about it, and will absolutely be coming back to this charming cottage, and am very much looking forward to enjoying the summer weather as well! The town had some great restaurants, with home-style cooking. I especially enjoyed Murray's Bar and Grill. The owner was very easy to work with, and made sure that the place was sparkling clean prior to our arrival. I highly recommend this cottage as a peaceful, charming getaway in Northern Michigan.

AWESOME Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

What a find! As an amateur landscape photographer, I was looking for a long weekend get-away to snap some cool photos when I happened upon this little cottage perfectly situated on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix. What a treat to stay right on the water and witness the miraculous sunrise every morning while enjoying my morning cup of coffee. This place is clean, very well maintained and perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing stay in Northern Michigan. While there, I explored the downtown Charlevoix area and found great restaurants, quaint places to shop and awesome picture taking opportunities!

Once I booked, the owner of the cottage contacted me with all necessary information. She was very professional and wanted to make sure that I had good experience. I sure did and I can’t wait to return! I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks for making my vacation so enjoyable!
