AFTER spending years exploring many lakes in Northern Michigan, we decided that nothing could compare to what Lake Charlevoix and the surrounding resort towns along the amazing 56 miles of Shoreline had to offer. We are a short scenic drive from other favorite cities like Petoskey and Traverse City. We chose the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix in particular because we like to water ski, wake board, knee board, and fish. Wake up in the morning and find glass like conditions. Pull the boat out drop the skis and you're off! Mom can watch the kids easily from the windows and deck because the view is unobstructed.
Our location on the West side of the lake gives us great sunrises and sun all day and late afternoon/early pm shade. Our property is spacious. The views are unobstructed and amazing. There is a boat slip available at no extra charge. Our property is well appointed and comfortable. We bought this one b/c it served all our needs. It's easy to get to all the sides of the lake, especially in the winter when the Ironton Ferry is closed. It also puts us closer to Ellsworth which has my all time favorite restaurant The Rowe Inn (1 of Michigans 5 star restaurant. We chose this townhouse in particular because it included nearly everything we needed in a vacation property.
It gave us the space we wanted and flexibility so we can share it comfortably with our friends and family. It included an on site boat slip and parking and storage for the toys. It has amazing views with easy access to the boat, jet skis, and water. I prefer grass common area over sandy beach! Though the sandy beach is pretty, I don't like sand blowing all over my sun drenched skin or into my summer cocktail or into the house. This property has the 2nd family room that has extra sleeping which is GREAT if you have teenage or grown adult kids (lol) who want there space or for company. Offers much flexibility.
BOAT SLIP AT NO EXTRA CHARGE. WASHER AND DRYER. WIFI.
ON THE WATER. WELL APPOINTED. REASONABLY PRICED COMPARED TO STAND ALONE COTTAGES.

We rented this townhouse on Lake Charlevoix with our two young children and another family. We had a such a wonderful time! The townhouse is very clean, with updated fixtures and appliances. The furniture was comfortable. The townhouse is on three levels with more than enough space. We spent quite a bit of time sitting on the porch or in the yard while the children played along the shore and in the water. It is shallow for quite a ways which is great for little ones. The property is very well maintained. The weather was great. The townhouse came with a boat slip that was easy to access and use. Lake Charlevoix itself is just beautiful. We were spoiled by our many adventures on the water. The home-owners have gathered all sorts of local information and made a wonderful reference binder with lots of things to do. The townhouse is located close to Charlevoix, Boyne, Petoskey and even Traverse City isn't too far - all great locations for both summer and winter activities! We found the owners to be very nice and a pleasure to work with. We have finally found a place that we could rent as "regulars" and we are so excited about that!
We are so happy that your family and friends had a great vacation! Thank you for being awesome guests and for treating our home like your home. We welcome you back any time of year and look forward to helping you make awesome memories next summer and every summer thereafter!
We absolutely loved staying at this property for our family vacation. The condo is clean and very well maintained. The amenities provided made our vacation very smooth and seamless.
The property is perfect for a family with young or grown children. It is large enough for many people or for just a single family. We have 2 little girls and the "kids room" where they slept had large bunk beds that the kids loved. The property has lots of closet space, and storage in case you over-pack like we did :) There are 2 full bathrooms that are very clean and a half bath off the kitchen which was very convenient. The kitchen was stocked with pots and pans for easy cooking and the outdoor grill was very convenient for our family. The appliances are newer as well.
The property sits right on the water and the basement door walks right out to a small personal patio and right to the lake. The lake is quiet and most of the week we had the entire place to ourselves. The neighbors arrived on the weekend and were very nice. Right off the kitchen/ living room area is a large balcony overlooking the water we loved sitting out here in the morning having coffee.
The location is fantastic if you wanted to day trip to other local cities. Very close to Charlevoix, Boyne and Ironton and a short car ride to Traverse City and Petoskey. There is a local sandy beach nearby with a park and baseball field. A grocery store in town and lots of local food options in East Jordan and surrounding areas.
The owner is incredible to work with. She is very prompt in communication, organized and the detail to which she helps you to prepare for your stay is so helpful. This meticulousness is reflected in the beautiful condo as you can tell pride of ownership during your stay.
Needless to say, I would highly recommend staying here for your next vacation. We had a great vacation! Love, The May Family
LLoyds of fun has done an outstanding job of making this place feel like home. The condo was equipped with everything that a family needs for vacation! The place was clean, well maintained and offered a spacious floor plan that accomodated our family. The balcony was relaxing to sit on during the morning while drinking coffee and offered a wonderful view of the lake. We saw a pair of swans daily. The beach was sandy and the dock was perfect for our boat.
The owners were very accomodating and have done a good job of keeping you abreast of restaurants and activities. They were excellent in correspondance if questions needed an answer. We enjoyed our stay.
Our family stayed here this past summer hand had an amazing time! First of all, the condo is very spacious and very clean and we had more than enough room for our family. My boys loved the bunk beds, the main level deck and the lower level walkout. The pictures don't to justice to the view and calming effect this lake has-none of us wanted to come home! The dock is real nice with your own boat slip, perfect for our boat! The lake is beautiful and the south arm is calmer than the north arm. Our boat ride was short to reach the main lake for excellent fishing! The condo is very close to many neighboring areas, such as Boyne City, downtown Charlevoix and Petoskey. The owners are fantastic to work with and answer all questions quickly. We are already planning another trip up here next year!
