Perfect Charlevoix Location

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best houses we have rented from HomeAway. The house itself was awesome and perfectly kept. The walk to town and to the beach across the street couldn't be beat. It was a short drive to the other beaches in the area - all of which we used. This was a tremendous experience and we hope to be back!

This is the second time we've stayed in this lovely home and we had an absolutely wonderful week in Charlevoix! The house perfectly fit the needs of our multi-generational family. The living and dining area are spacious and the kitchen is well equipped and modern. The bedrooms and bathrooms worked out perfectly for our family and our grandchildren loved the four bed "cousins room"!! We also enjoyed using the bikes, ping pong table, and gas grill. We loved the swings on the front porch and spent lots of time out there, enjoying our morning coffee and watching the sunset over the lake. Our family universally gives this house "five stars" and we hope to stay there again for our annual Charlevoix vacation.

Wonderful even when it rained. Only issues were that one bedroom got warm at night. No ceiling fan. Being a veteran I would like to see a new flag. Great vacation and excellent property.

Fantastic experience in all ways!!

  • 5 of 5

From booking through the end of the stay, all went well! Responses and interest from owner were prompt and helpful. The location is amazing with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan from great swings and rocker on the front porch. We were able to take picture frame worthy shots of beautiful sunsets over the lake. In a quiet neighborhood and short walk to the action in quaint Charlevoix. The interior of the house is beautiful and it is stocked with everything desired. All rooms nice and perfect for multiple families. We had 2 toddlers who loved the spaciousness of the main living area and 6 adults who had privacy when needed with great sitting areas in front and back. Highly recommend and would reserve again! Thank you Tim!

This is a great house, in great condition, with all the amenities you could need. After car trouble on the way to Charlevoix, we were so relieved to find the house even better than advertised. We had an awesome time while in town for our son's wedding and 4 full updated bathrooms were great for getting ready for several events. We loved the outdoor space and were able to store items in the garage for a party we were hosting at a beach pavilion. The location is perfect for walking to town and our 2 grandsons (2 and 4) loved the beach, the ferry boats and bridge openings. Thank you for sharing your house with us, we will be back.

Our vacation was the first week August 2016. This is a beautiful home with plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 5 kids. My g-kids loved all the games. We walked to town many times, it is close to the beaches and many activities in the area. Our favorite was the front porch and its view. We plan on returning to this property.
