About Bob Oles

We were both born and raised in Michigan and truly enjoy the four seasons that Michigan has to offer! Boating & golfing in the summer and skiing & snowboarding in the winter...a truly year round resort area. Lake Charlevoix is a short walk and Boyne Mountain is a short 15 minute drive away.

Bob Oles purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bob Oles chose Northern Michigan

Our cottage sits on a quiet lane and backs up to a golf course with shared Lake Charlevoix access. We feel anyone who stays here will thoroughly enjoy it and return again!

What makes this cottage unique

When we purchased this cottage...we fell in love with the high ceilings, quiet setting and its location - having access to the lake didn't hurt either. The home had been vacant for quite some time and we had fun restoring it back to life!

Peaceful Hideout

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the winter months and thought it was very comfortable. We truly enjoyed the peace and tranquility that this home has to offer. It is 3/4 of a mile from some awesome hiking trails on one side of the road, or a stroll along Lake Charlevoix Beach along the Whiting Park Campground. If you want total privacy a block down the road is a lot on Lake Charlevoix that goes with the property. It's a very nice beach to bask in the sun.The home is aprox 6 miles from Boyne Cty, 9 miles from East Jordan. If you are looking for a great place to hang out, read a good book and relax, look no more.

Fabulous week!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I have rented this house. Bob,the owner is very available and accommodating. There is no air conditioning, but there were several fans and it cooled off in the evening. The kitchen is well equipped. The bedroom on the first floor has bunk beds and the bottom bunk mattress is challenging if an adult sleeps on it. But there is a roll away bed in the closet as an option. The house was clean and comfortable. About six miles from Boyne City and the view of Lake Charlevoix driving into town is is SO beautiful. Lots of deck space if you like to BBQ and deck off upstairs bedroom was special.

Nice Family Trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely time and there was plenty of space for all.

It was a little too tucked away for our liking, but the home itself was nicely kept. Bob was very helpful and quick to respond to our request t trim the weeds--done first thing the following morning! Bob was also helpful in finding some nice restaurants in the area. Boyne City was a great place to spend the evenings walking through the shops and along the water. Thanks for a nice family vacation!

Extended Stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I rented the home in the summer and later for an extended stay for 3 months, Oct.-Dec., 2014.

We enjoyed our time there. The large lot is adjacent to a beautiful golf course with fantastic views. The heavily wooded area gives a feeling of seclusion but is not to far away from Boyne City and the Ironton Ferry for trips to Charlevoix. The large garage is great for storage and for keeping your vehicle in.

The large lower deck is nice for sitting and watching the golfers and makes for great entertaining because of the expansive built in seating.

The interior is in good condition and has adequate furniture and sleeping arrangements. Our son and wife loved the upper suite with the deck and private bath with a garden shower.

The kitchen was well stocked with many new items that Bob purchased. The appliances all worked well including the stacked washer and dryer. Basically you need not bring anything when renting except personal items; towels, linens, etc. are numerous.

The owner, Bob, was fantastic to deal with concerning any problems. One call and he took care of the concerns 100%.

Feel secure with this home rental and enjoy the area.

Great retreat

  • 5 of 5

This charming home set in the woods is a great place to relax and take in all the Boyne/Charlevoix area has to offer, which is plentiful. Bob and Mary are very welcoming hosts and always able to answer questions and provide suggestions as to area dining or activities. They have renovated this home and the décor is updated and like a B and B. We liked the open concept for the living/dining, and kitchen area. The big deck is great as well. It backs to a golf course so it's great for those that want to be close to a course. Early morning does bring the golf course lawnmowers near the back of the home but they aren't there for long. We have stayed here three times and enjoyed all our stays.

Hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 generations - adult children and grandchildren) stayed here over the week of July 4. The home accommodated everyone nicely and had everything we needed for a wonderful relaxing family vacation. It was a bonus to be able to bring our dog along. We especially enjoyed the back deck and having bonfires, playing at the beach (although the water was on the chilly side) and the guys took in a round of golf too. The home is tucked away down a quiet road next to the golf course - we missed it and drove right past the first time, even though we had directions! The beach is down across the main road, a nice walk, or a quick drive, and was enjoyable for building sand castles, flying kites and relaxing in the sun. The only down side, and not necessarily a bad thing, was that to the best we could tell, the nearest grocery store is about 20 minutes away. We have never been to this area before and discovered some fun things (holiday festivities in Boyne City, and the shops in Petoskey), but would love to come back and really explore the area better. Would definitely consider returning to this rental if we vacation in the area again and our family hasn't expanded too much.
