This charming classic clapboard cottage on the South Arm of beautiful Lake Charlevoix is situated in the heart of Northern Michigan's Water Wonderland.

Also, a bar-b-que is provided.
Sleeps 6. The master bedroom has a queen bed, private bath, two windows that face the lake and a walk-in closet. The sleeping porch, which also faces the lake, has two built-in single beds, ideal for kids or anyone under 6ft. tall. The living room has a queen size hide-a-bed and a queen size futon. The main bathroom is off of the living room and has a shower, along with a washer and dryer.
The family kitchen is large, cheery and well stocked; great for family gatherings, board games or just hanging out.
Other gathering spots include a lovely old fashioned garden with 4 adirondack chairs and an umbrella, a very large shaded lawn, a great sandy beach and of course, the dock!

About Karen Hadley
Great granddaughter of original owners and granddaughter of original builders. I live near by and am the caretaker along with my brother (who lives next door).
Karen Hadley purchased this Cottage in 1937
Why Karen Hadley chose Eveline
This cottage is my family heritage and is where my favorite lifetime memories were created. We grew up here during the summers enjoying camp fires, s'mores, swimming, fishing with my mom, waterskiing, reading under the shade trees and just plain being kids. Every day was an adventure! As an adult, I appreciate this unique setting even more. We would like to share this with you so that you and your family may create similar memories.
What makes this Cottage unique
As you drive down the tree shaded drive, you can spot Mimi's red cottage at the end of the road. You step out of your car and take in a deep breath of fresh lake air. Walk through the garden into the country kitchen and immediately feel right at home. Don't bother to unpack, instead head down the expanse of lawn right to the lake. Walk out to the end of the dock, take another deep breath and RELAX! Your vacation has now begun!

Charming home away from home!
We had several wonderful days of truly great weather! The lake and boating couldn't have been better for 3 kids under the age of 9 and our lab. They enjoyed fishing and swimming from the dock. We hope to return again for more memories!!!
So glad you had a great time with your family. I think you hold the record for fish caught this summer! Hope to see you next year!
Cozy, quiet, place to recharge your batteries!
Lovely location and lovely owners. A delightful week on a quiet part of the lake. The perfect getaway.
Thx so much for the review. We enjoyed having you as guests and we are glad you had a good time! It is a great place to get away and recharge!
cozy cottage on Lake Charlevoix
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful rustic cottage right on the lake. It is a great place to get some much needed rest and relaxation. We came with our family of 7 and it worked well. It was so peaceful and we recommend to anyone looking to explore beautiful northern Michigan.
Thanks! We are happy you and your family enjoyed your stay! I know from personal experience that it is a great place for families to connect and make memories
A Great Summer Retreat
I grew up spending many summers on Lake Charlevoix. This cottage allowed me to share my love for Charlevoix with my kids. The sleeping porch is perfect for young kids, the house has rustic charm and is perfect for that old world feel. I highly recommend Mimi's Cottage!
Fantastic Vacation. Whole family had a great time.
Weather was great and so was the cottage. My family had a great time. We look forward to visiting again in the future.
Thanks! We are glad you had a great time and hope to see you in the future.
We really enjoyed the location...not as busy as the main lake. The house is so quaint! It is stocked with all the supplies you will need. Great dock to fish from and a canoe to use to tour the lake. You feel secluded :) Our 3 daughters enjoyed their stay as well! Highly recommend!
Castle Farms is nearby with activities / shows/weddings every weekend. Strawberry, raspberry picking nearby at Kitely's farm. The Jordan River is great for canoeing and tubing. Lake Charlevoix is wonderful for swimming, fishing, skiing, kayaking, sailing, and most water sports. Petoskey stone hunting is a favorite past-time.
