Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Cozy lakeview home with two car garage, boat lift, dock, and linens.

Our home has a dock and V hull boat lift for your use, bring your boat to Swan Marina or public access (just down the street) and you are set for the whole week! Local boat rentals and charters are also nearby for cruising, fishing, para sailing, canoeing etc. The lake is sandy around the dock so it is perfect for a quick dip, letting kids splash around, or floating on a raft for the afternoon.

Multiple deck areas have a grill, patio furniture, picnic table, spring fed pond and large front yard. Back deck has two brand new anti-gravity chairs and is the perfect place to unwind after a day of adventure.

This home is the PERFECT central location for many adventures. Mackinaw Bridge, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leelanau Peninsula, Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands, Traverse City, Petoskey are all within an hour or two from the home. Come relax on Lake Charlevoix and enjoy all Northern Michigan has to offer!

The perfect spot for family vacations, a honeymoon, hunters, fishermen, girls getaway, or golfers. There are so many activities to offer within a short drive. Come check in and relax!

Nestled into the edge of the woods with a large deck facing Lake Charlevoix's South Arm, this home has lots of 'up north' appeal and charm. There is a queen bedroom on lower level, dry kitchen, half bath, and living area; main living area on middle level with queen bedroom, full bath, living room, kitchen; and loft area has built in desk and three single beds. There is plenty of room to spread out kids vs. adults when you are not out enjoying the gorgeous LAKE CHARLEVOIX!

What makes this house unique

This house feels like a cabin in the woods with its Chalet style nestled under the canopy of trees. But it also has the privilege of being lakefront on one of Michigan's most beautiful lakes. The south arm of Lake Charlevoix enables boaters to ski, tube, swim, float your way to Lake Michigan or to the larger part of Lake Charlevoix or the Chain of Lakes. Inside the home it feels quaint and cozy with views from the lake from all levels. The wood beams and cabin theme add to the vacation feel while including all the amenities of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great Cottage! So comfortable! Loved everything about teh cottage! Lake was beautiful and we had PERFECT weather! Went to Murrays just about every night to watch the Tigers games. Found the best quilt shop in Charlevoix. Loved Fisherman's Island State Park. Took side trips everyday. Enjoyed the deck, dock and those cute green canvas chairs on teh middle deck. Thank you!

Awesome Northern Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We LOVE northern Michigan and had the pleasure of enjoying Dan & Carrie's fabulous place in East Jordan! The house is nicely laid out, clean and well-stocked with anything you could need. It has a great deck area and gorgeous view of the lake! We took our boat and appreciated using the dock (and found a lovely sand bar right near Ironton). This awesome 'treehouse' is a perfect get-away for any family, couple or adults looking for a peaceful vacation in beautiful northern Michigan. You will also love working with Carrie & Dan! They are the best!

Fabulous Weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Cabin! It was close to the water to fish off the dock. We went to both beaches in East Jordan and Elm Pointe and our kids loved swimming there. Charlevoix was a short drive where we enjoyed dinner, shops and watching the boats. The cabin was clean and spacious. Our kids loved exploring in the loft. It had a fully equipped kitchen and grill to cook on. The nature around was beautiful. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the boats go by, drinking our morning cofffee. We would highly reccomend this place! Great owners!!

Lake Charlevoix Summer Vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

Our family has come to the area for many years and we decided to stay somewhere new this year. We opted for Carrie's rental on Lake Charlevoix. It was a great location. Close to Charlevoix, East Jordan and Ellsworth. The home was very neat and clean and had a great up north feel to it. We were very happy with the home and all the things you would need to cook in the kitchen were available. Many times you rent and there are sparse items. The kitchen here was fully ready for use. The deck overlooks the lake and we left the sliding glass door open all night and the lake breeze was wonderful!

The boat dock offers a place to leave your boat and Lake Charlevoix has a marina on the water to gas up. It is a great small mouth lake. We caught consistent 4-5 lb small mouth bass.

If your older or have health limitations, there are a lot of steps up and down to the unit. But it is a beautiful spot and home.

Favorite places to go: Charlevoix to the Argonne Supper Club (great shrimp dinners with early bird from 5-630pm), Charlevoix lighthouse, fishing. Marty's in East Jordan by the park for ice cream and chicken dinners.

Great up north property that will surely be fully rented each season!

Thank you for your hospitality! We enjoyed it.

Car: recommended

Dock your boat in the front yard and you are all set for the week of fun on Lake Charlevoix! Centrally located between Sleeping Bear Dunes, Mackinaw Bridge, Traverse City, Petoskey, and Castle Farms. Within 30 minutes of Lake Michigan, tons of golf courses, hiking areas, shopping, and small town charm. So many fun things to do!!!!
