About John & Jeri Duerr

I loved growing up on Dixon Avenue in Charlevoix. When my children were young, I wanted them to have some of the wonderful experiences I had during my childhood and when the opportunity presented itself to purchase this charming old house, I couldn't resist. We remodelled Dixon House in 2008-2009 with the idea of providing modern amenities while retaining its original character and its comfortable atmosphere. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with family or friends, we think you will like Dixon House.

John & Jeri Duerr purchased this house in 1989

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Needed a place to stay for a Wedding at the Castle! The Dixon House was perfect! We had 6 people, my husbsnd and i plus our adult children and their significant others. The owners were very nice leaving us wine and chocolates for arrival and comunication was great! Everything you needed during the stay was provided. Walking distance to beach and town. The porch was my favorite, whether coffee in the morning or a drink in the evening! Would rent again for a longer stay

Front Porch Magic

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came down for a wedding at Castle Farms for the weekend. We all can't believe how perfect the Dixon House was for us. We spent as much time out on the porch every morning just enjoying the neighborhood and each other's company. I agree with another review that the pictures don't do it justice, but it fit 8 of us just fine and dandy. I highly recommend this property and will tell everyone about it. We not only loved the house itself, but we loved the location to downtown. The walk over the bridge and into downtown is not only very manageable, but nice to have after all the delicious food we were consuming. Thanks Dixon House for a wonderful visit!

Family Charm

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Dixon House. If you love historic homes, this is the house to rent. It is clean and comfortable. It has everything you need. The owners are wonderful to work with and our pets were welcome. The owners welcomed us with chocolates and wine. The communication from start to finish was excellent and prompt. The price is very reasonable. The location is great as it is close enough to walk down town and to the lakes, yet you are off the beaten path. The porch is beautiful. We will choose to stay at the Dixon House again. We have not stayed in Charlevoix in the past, but, needed a place to stay for our son's wedding at Castle Farms. Now, we will visit for pure, simple relaxation and time away. It was beautiful and the Dixon House made it a comfortable stay. Really, though, I think the best part was the owners. They were so very nice and were willing to accommodate our extra requests.

Front porch perfection

  • 5 of 5

We just returned form a wonderful weekend in Charlevoix and the best thing about it was this amazing house! Everything was super clean and so well stocked! The location was an easy walk to downtown, but far enough off the main road to be quiet and peaceful. The front porch was our favorite part! The owners were gracious and helpful with all of my questions. If this home has a vacancy during the time that you are looking to travel to Charlevoix do not hesitate to make your reservation, you will not be disappointed!

Loved the Dixon House

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved this house! the pictures do not do the property justice. We rented the house for a wedding at the castle. The shuttle for the wedding was just down the street. We stayed with my two grown kids and spouses. We all loved it & hope to return soon. Mary

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Charlevoix and were very happy with the Dixon House. The house has plenty of room inside along with a beautiful front porch and patio area at the back of the house. The house is in a very nice neighborhood and only 1-2 blocks away from town. We would definitely consider staying there again.
