Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Interior completely renovated.

Ask about our 2nd vacation rental to be completely renovated by late Spring 2016, just a block away from this unit vrbo # 888504. The Adams "Hobby House" sits on 3 lots, has secluded country feel, but it's downtown where all the action is! In the Summer featuring 'Concerts in the Park', Friday Nights 'Stroll the Streets', you can have cocktails downtown and walk back to your vacation home. Enjoy the backyard with burgers on the grill or try our great restaurants including Red Mesa, Cafe Sante' or the Boyne River Inn. In the evening kick back around the fire-pit and enjoy quiet time with your friends and family. In the summer, enjoy badminton, horse-shoes, bocci-ball in the back yard...all provided for your fun.

Bring your fishing poles, kayak and canoes, the Boyne River is only a block away. Also plenty of room to park your boat and trailer, the city marina and boat launch is just blocks away.

World class golfing and skiing is just a few miles away at Boyne Mountain.

For your kids, send them walking to the parks, visit downtown or hit the beach. They can play volleyball, basketball, baseball or try para-sailing over Lake Charlevoix, voted one of the best lakes in the USA.

No need to drive as everything is within easy walking distance.

We just finished renovating the entire interior, this beautifully decorated home is now ready for your vacation getaway.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the nicest rental house we've ever stayed in. Everything is decorated beautifully, although the furniture is a bit worn, it's still reasonably comfy. They had lights on, the fireplace going, and delicious fresh baked muffins waiting for us upon our arrival. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need, including condiments and seasonings, making it much easier to cook while we were there. The drive to the mountain was short, so we didn't miss staying at the resort. Had the weather been nicer, we would've walked to town for dinner, but it was raining, so we took the very short trip there in the truck. Dinner at the Red Mesa Grill was fabulous! We could easily imagine how nice it would be to stay here during the summer months, with downtown, the lake, and the park all within walking distance. Not to mention the fire pit and grill in the back yard. Having wifi was nice so we could get some work done while there too. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay any time of the year. :)

Perfect size for our group of 4

  • 4 of 5

Nice location with privacy all around. Having two baths was great and as the guest before us, the porch enclosure was a great place to store the skis and coolers of beverages. We had the coldest weekend of the year so far so we weren't able to take advantage of the fire pit outside but it looked charming. Thanks to Shannon and Lindsay for having the lights and heat turned on. The music was a nice touch too :) Cute place. Loved all of the pewter/tin decorations. Fits the house perfectly.

Great little house, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a two night ski weekend at Boyne (it’s a short ten minute drive from the house to the Mountain). The house was just as advertised and had everything we needed. The entranceway was great for storing ski and snow boots and afforded us extra space for temporary storage of beverages and ski clothing, this space really help keep the house from cluttering up with gear. The kitchen contained all we needed for quick meals and BC Pizza is on our way home from the Mountain for when you are too tired to cook (BTW: BC Pizza is great, highly recommend it) . We enjoyed both the interior electric fireplace and also the outside wood burning fire pit after long days on the mountain. The kids loved making s’mores outside while adults enjoyed a beverage around the fire. Bedrooms and bed were comfortable and easily slept our group of 6 and having 2 full bathrooms was a great amenity. House worked perfectly for our ski weekend, highly recommend it. Owners were great to deal with and went over and above in preparing the house for our stay!

Wonderful place to stay and very convienent!

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing and enjoyable time with our two kids (11, and 12) for a two night ski weekend at Boyne Mountain which is 10 - 12 minutes from the house. We loved being within a very short walking distance of downtown Boyne City (5 minute walk). We arrived at the home in a snowstorm to find the entrance way freshly shoveled and loved the warm welcome with electric the fireplace lit and all of the lights on.

The home is warm and cozy with the master bedroom feeling like a separate suite offering privacy and coziness. We also really enjoyed a nice mudroom area to place our snow covered shoes and hang our ski clothes. There is also a very large foyer to place ski's pole's etc... Perfect for the family of four for a weekend or week.
