About Matthew Isard

We are a family of 5, and love the outdoors. Skiing, boating, golf, fishing hunting you name it! This is a second home for us and we currently live in Spring Lake MI.

Matthew Isard purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Matthew Isard chose East Jordan

We have both vacationed in northern MI as kids and have family in the surrounding area. Our intentions are to eventually retire on Lake Charlevoix and enjoy everything the area has to offer. But until then we want to share the opportunity with anyone else, to experience northern Michigan at its finest!

What makes this cottage unique

This home gives you the best of both worlds, the old style Northern Michigan cabin along with a quaint homely decorated 'A' frame.

Quiet, peaceful setting with beautiful view of lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and just as pictured, and well stocked with the basics (trash liners, paper towels, etc). The lake was beautiful, clear water and found several petosky stones. Very quiet and peaceful setting. The woods were not "hikeable" as we hoped (dense, no trails) however they provided very nice privacy. Handrails at entry would make this property more 55+ friendly. Nice proximity to Boyne for easy shopping, and Ironton Ferry for a day in Charlevoix. Loved the canoe and shallow water. Overall a great home for multiple families!

Awesome vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for our family vacation the past two years, and absolutely love it! The cottage is spacious, immaculate, and equipped with everthing you will need. We had three generations of family here, and there was enough room for all of us. The location is perfect. There is lots to do, or just relax and do nothing! I would highly recommend this cottage. We definitely would like to come back.

My 60th birthday

  • 5 of 5

My 60th birthday is in Sept. but we celebrated it in June. My kids, grandkids, my husband and I (10 in all) stayed at this cabin for a week. Had a wonderful time. We were afraid we wouldn't be able to get in the water in June but we had 3 days of near 90 degrees and the water felt great. It's close to everything. Went to Sleeping Bear Dunes and Macinaw Island on 2 different days. Not far at all. The cabins were great. It has everything you need as advertised. The water was a little high but all the more shallow for the grandkids. We all had a wonderful time. With 10 people it wasn't crowded at all. I would definitely recommend this place for your vacation. June is still a good month to go.

This place is perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place in 2013 and again this year for a week in the summer. Our group has been renting for our annual summer vacation for 10 years now and we like this property the best. We have 11-12 of us and the two separate cabins give us plenty of space, sleeping options, and opportunities to be in your own space if you need some down time. Great combination of modern amenities along with old fashioned rustic comfort. The porch off the main cabin provides grandma and grandpa with their preferred shade while giving them a great view of the lake and beach below. Very clean, well appointed, and welcoming atmosphere. The owner is easy to deal with and very responsive to any request or issue that might arise.

2nd Year/Better than the first

  • 5 of 5

I don't know how it's possible to have more fun the second time around. we love it, love it, love it. We shared with our family. Brought our Bryant speedboat(24.5')parked it out front. Brother rented pontoon. Played beach badminton, ladder golf, speedminton, campfires, swam, lounged on the floating oasis(inflatable). We found it to be clean and comfortable. Used the laundry great asset. Was nice to meet you Matt. Look forward to next year!
