The South Arm of Lake Charlevoix is great for boating, because it is usually calmer than the rest of the lake.

Took advantage of the lake everyday, ate great food in downtown Charlevoix relaxed.... the perfect week! Cottage was great we loved our stay here very much! We look forward to staying here again next year, So relaxing! Don't want to leave Thank you for sharing your home with us
We have loved the Charlevoix area and have been coming here for many years. We came upon this lake front home and it is one of our favorites places now. The lake, the water, the amenities of the rental home were all more that we ever expected. Management was helpful and accommodating. Home was very neat and clean!
The house Looks tiny from the outside but we shocked by how big it felt on the inside!!! The house was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook meals with ease, and plenty of blankets and pillows. The contact person was VERY quick to respond and even let us know on checkout day that no one was renting the house immediately after us so we could stay as long as we liked (no checkout time that day). It was fantastic, we absolutely plan to stay again!!
We had an excellent stay at this cottage. The cottage was very clean and WELL WELL stocked with everything we needed. There was never a time we didn't have something we needed. Everything from beach towels, to kitchen supplies, and everything in between. This seemed to be the quieter side of the lake, which was great! The water was great for swimming, and the beach chairs at the end of the dock were great for sitting in the sun and watching the boats and the world go by. We were surprised to have cable and internet, which were convenient to have for the one rainy day we had. The property manager lived near by, and stopped by the first day we were there to check in and see if we needed anything. The cottage is very centrally located to Charlevoix, Petoskey, Boyne City, Waloon Lake, East Jordan. We did several day trips to these cities and had a blast. Thank you for a great week away!
Beautiful little cottage on gorgeous beachfront property....well stocked with the essentials and spotlessly clean. We absolutely loved our week there and plan on a return visit next year.
The house was very nice just as many of the other reviews indicated. The kitchen was well appointed w/paper products included. The bedrooms are tight but it is not as though you are in them very much. The deck is shaded which is nice when you are spending all your time in the sun at the beach level. The beach was really great, the kids and our lab could walk out quite a distance without hitting deep water and it was sandy w/minimal muck and/or rocks. We rented kayaks and a paddle board and they were perfect for mornings on the lake. We also rented a jet ski from a local marina and that was fun.
A few complaints...there is no air-conditioning in the house and we had the misfortune of being there during the hottest week of the year- temps inside reached 100 and it was literally unbearable. We ended up going home a few days early, so bring your box fans from home for sure. Second concern is the long, narrow drive that leads to the cottage...it is a bit over grown and left scratches down the side and on the roof of our truck. This really needs to be trimmed back. Lastly, there is an expectation that you will clean the unit before you leave (not just pick up, but really clean and wash etc). I have rented through VRBO several times for other properties and the cleaning fee has always been included, this was an additional fee. The washing machine is a stackable unit making washing bedding a major task. It also made me question how clean the place really was when we arrived as it was likely to have been done by the previous renter, to me this is not a plan and there should be a professional cleaning service as part of the deal, especially at the rate we paid for the week.
Overall, it was a decent place to stay- you just need to understand the limitations and decide of the draw of Lake Charlevoix makes it worth it.
We had a wonderful time. The cottage was clean, fresh, and well equipped (especially the kitchen). The beds were very comfortable. This side of the lake is calmer for smaller boats, on the other arm, when we rented a place there, we often could not go out because of big waves. The deck is beautiful and we enjoyed our meals outside. The wireless internet was appreciated as both couples brought laptops. The beach is great for sunbathing and there is a Glen's in East Jordan for groceries. Side trips to Charlevoix, Boyne City and Petoskey were great! Thanks for your hospitality!
