About Ted Macksey

Our families have been coming to this area since we were both kids! Then as life would have it, we both met at Boyne Mountain in 1990, and knew that we both wanted to live here some day! We owned lake front up here for many years and traveled up every weekend from downstate, then finally moved up here 5 years ago permanently! Our dream come true! Life is good!

Ted Macksey purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Ted Macksey chose Northern Michigan

Close to everything! We moved our business up here from downstarte and have been looking for real estate for our business for years. Then we were blessed to find the perfect lakefront spot with a condo with an amazing view in the building... So, we have the best of both worlds now! We have the perfect location for our business, and a fabulous condo to let our parents enjoy while visitng and can share with others to enjoy what we live everyday! Life is good!

Wonderful place for rest and relaxation!

  • 4 of 5

We are just finishing two weeks at the property -- the location is fabulous and within walking distance to almost anything you want to do. The view of lake Charlevoix is spectacular in the mornings and afternoons and the sunsets are breathtaking.

Ted was great to work with and helpful. He was always available to answer questions or provide information. We felt totally at home. Loved happy hour on the deck. All of the comforts of home. We would recommend this property to anyone and plan to return again next summer.

Boyne City Getaway

Location was prime, the view was incredible! There were all the necessities one would need for a vacation stay. Working with Ted was super easy. Would recommend this property to anyone. We stayed with our two girls and they loved the bunk beds.

Perfect - divine location, great decor

  • 5 of 5

I'm currently sitting on the red sofa in the pictures. This place is great! It's really beautiful, and the kitchen has full trim if you feel like cooking. I'm here with just my wife and we have waaaay too much room. It's really designed for four, could do six without much fuss, and is technically an eight sleeper with four beds. The location is absolutely perfect - it's next to the river, and directly across from the waters of Lake Charlevoix. Anything in town is literally under two blocks away. The morel festival was this week, and this place is across the street from it - you can watch it from your perch, and it's quite fun. We're here for four days, doing the mushroom festival, boyne mountain biking, kayaking, mackinaw island, and hitting up the local restaurants, and we've been completely happy since anything is at most a 10 minute drive. I highly recommend this place, and it's so great my wife wants to move up here!

Single gripe : Shower stays warm about 12 minutes. Plenty, but don't dawdle. The owner agreed it seemed short and was going to check it out. Five stars regardless, this place is worth every penny and more.

Oh yeah : Double bonus - the internet is blazing fast. I'm a tech guy on vacation and it was reaaaally nice considering cell and 3G/4G service is spotty up here.

Great Boyne City location!

  • 5 of 5

Great can walk or bike to everything. Wonderful view of Lake Charlevoix. Well decorated, neat, and clean little condo. Good for a couple or a couple with 2 small children. At times can be a bit noisy[traffic], but you get used to it. Owners Ted and Pam are great hosts!

This beautiful lakefront property will make you feel right at home. The tasteful European décor and high quality furnishings/bedding were wonderful. The owner was so accommodating and kind, making sure everything was to our liking. I would definitely recommend this property and plan to stay here in the future on our visits to the Boyne area.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this condo while in Boyne for a family reunion and it was perfect! There are great restaurants and friendly shops all within walking distance. The view of the lake is fantastic and the beach is just steps away. We loved sitting on the deck with a cup of coffee and letting our cares just drift away. We felt right at home in this comfy and charming place. The hosts were most helpful in giving us tips on places to see and things to do along with making sure all our needs were met. It was just the two of us so we had more than enough room. I would definitely recommend this to our friends for a great place to stay.
