About Joanne

We love the outdoors and love to be in it. We fell in love with the drybed Cedar forest on this property and then viewed the perfect natural place to build the log home. With the assistance of a local builder and dear friends we spent years of weekends finishing the house for occupancy with plans to move North. Much to our delight we had a grandson join the family then another, then another and we just can't leave the delightful little ones yet in Southern MI. MI is the state we both grew up in and after traveling to what we thought were our dream states realized we have the best right here. Someday ahead we hope to enjoy the Log Home full time but for now are willing to share our dream.

Joanne purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Joanne chose Boyne Falls

We built it because of the many outdoor activities in this area. We love the snow, snow ski, snowshoe, hike and snowmobil, and the same love in the Summer with so many lakes and outdoor activities or just a walk in the great fresh air.The view from the front porch with total Fall color change or the morning sunrise with a cup of coffee or evening happy hour.

What makes this cabin unique

We have many lovely neighbors that live there yearround and others that are weekenders like us. With all of us having acreage and busy lifestyles we enjoy our privacy in a friendly manner. Sitting in what I call our fairy forrest I love the tranquility of listening to and watching the rushing river on a hot day. We snowshoe in the woods on the most blistering winter days totally protected from the winds. Lake Louise is minutes away in the Summer with a wonderful park, public access and beach area that is usually not crowded. Lake Charlevoix is 5 minutes away. Private side deck for sunbathing. Plenty of room to throw a ball. The mushroom hunting is great. Boyne City has street music & events ever Friday during the Summer months. We do share a portion of the Cedar Forrest with a neighbor and request consideration of their privacy in their posted region. The large bridge across the river is theirs and private. Thank you!

Extremely impressive!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing and I feel we got a lot for our money. Even though we couldn't find a place to rent snowmobiles in the area, there were many things to do. The house was amazing and Joanne was equally wonderful keeping in touch with us. The house was very clean and stocked with whatever you needed. Simply stunning views and relaxation! I'll definitely come back:-)

Amazing cozy cabin: perfect winter and Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful stay at this beautiful cabin which is nestled within beautiful trees creating such a peaceful and relaxing stay. The views from inside the home looking out to the snow covered trees were truly breathtaking while a beautiful fire crackled within the fireplace created the picture perfect setting for time spent together as a family. While it is quite peaceful and secluded, it is also quite convenient to Boyne Mtn (4 miles) where we enjoyed a beautiful day of skiing. We also enjoyed renting snow mobiles one day enjoying the beautiful freshly fallen snow at a park nearby. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare and enjoy family meals together. The fireplace was beautiful and the family room was well used by all of us enjoying our time together. Our time was filled with playing games, reading, talking and exploring outside. I look forward to bringing my family here again. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us to enjoy this past Christmas. Many special memories were made!!
