Excellent house for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideal for our annual family reunion. We spent much time in the living room, kitchen and adjoining porch overlooking the lake. Very peaceful, yet close to Charlevoix. Enough activities (boating, tennis, hiking) on the property to keep everyone occupied.

Best Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home and location for a family gathering. The home was extremely well done with a great floor plan. Plenty of room on all floors with good size bedrooms and bathrooms. The private lake and large acreage make for a peaceful and relaxing retreat. When you want go to town, Charlevoix is just a short drive away. When considering Northern Michigan for a vacation, this luxury log home should be on your short list!

Five a Weeks in a Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We spent five amazing weeks at the Andrews beautiful home. Words alone, can't describe the home or peaceful surroundings. We left the hustle and bustle of Dallas, to find cooler weather and peace. We found much at Lake Moblo. Our days consisted of morning coffee on the large deck overlooking the beautiful wooded lot, lake and wild life. We took hikes on the extensive trails covering over one mile of trails, biked, played tennis, boated and played basketball. Every night ended where we started our days overlooking the lake drinking fine wine, only to be capped each evening with a fire roaring on the deck. We went into Charlevoix often, and ventured to Bay Harbor several times. We rented a boat a few times and took our various guests on Lake Charlevoix, ranked the second most beautiful lake in the US only behind Lake Tahoe. The house offers everything you could ask for, with two masters bedrooms on the top floor, two on the main and two with extra beds and bunks on the ground floor. We had tough time leaving this piece of heaven and we highly recommend this home to others. Thank you Margolyn and Charles.

A Treasure in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from a 2 weeks stay at the Andrew's Log Cabin, and all of us agreed that it was a perfect place for a vacation. Their home is so well appointed and spacious, but homey, too. Although we were a crowd, there was ample space for all of us; with room to spare.

The appeal was not only indoors, but outdoors as well. Manicured lawns, groves of birch trees, meadows, lots of hiking trails and a peaceful lake with fish....and loons!.

Although Charlevoix , Petoskey and Lake Michigan were only a short distance away, there were many activities available right on the premises; enough for each one of us(ages 6-81). We all agreed that it was an ideal week, and that we would recommend it to our friends in a heartbeat!

Thank you to the Andrews for sharing their is a treasure!

"On Golden Pond"

  • 5 of 5

This property is secluded and very relaxing for the older members of the group yet offers wonderful activities for the younger age groups. It is a well-equipped and clean residence with plenty of character. We usually rent on larger bodies of water but decided to try something different. We were delighted with the variety of amenities that entertained pre-schoolers to social security recipients. This is a wonderful property for family reunions! The 40 acre lake was great for kayaking, canoeing and fishing. The owners were very cooperative. Charlevoix is about 20 minutes from the property.

Bert & Jo Anna - Marble Falls, Texas

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 helped us celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary at this wonderful place. It was more than we had expected. The home itself, was beautiful, large and had all the bedrooms and baths needed for our size family. The view was outstanding, as we sat on the porch looking out across the lake. We have never had such good fishing either. We all caught 4-5 # bass as we listened to the loons on the lake. Everyone felt this was a dream vacation. We hope to return someday. Thanks again Charles for letting us share this beautiful place.
