This home and the one next door has been in Sally's family for decades and we are thrilled to share it with guests! Sally lives full time in the home next door over the summer months (Bob visits whenever he is able) and is a wealth of information about the area. Think of her as a complimentary concierge service.

Charlevoix home

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough wonderful things about the Winter's lovely home in Charlevoix! Our family was there for my daughter's and her fiance's engagement party and bridal shower.

The house is darling, the view spectacular, and all the personal touches the owners added made this one of the best getaways our family has ever had.

We felt so at home.

Thank you!

Summer Cottage? This Is It

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, just book it! HABOR VIEW is straight out of Cape Cod envisioned to be the laid back summer cottage we all remember as kids. This is a true cottage cottage with everything that you'll need for a magical getaway. Situated on a high bluff over looking the harbor, HV is relaxing as it is beautiful:

Wicker furniture, cozy fireplace, comfortable beds, (Even bikes) room for the whole family and situated on a beautiful tree lined street in the heart of Charlevoix, however, the thing that will bring you back time and time again are the priceless patio views of Round Lake Harbor. ABSOLUTELY MIND BLOWING. The owners, Sally and Bob, are the best people you will ever meet and have quickly have become our friends from the north. Best of the best.

About Bob & Sally Winter

We spend our summers and part of the spring and fall in gorgeous Charlevoix, Michigan. Our 2 homes are next to one another and we've decided to rent out the one to make some extra money and to share the beauty of Charlevoix with visitors.

Sally has been spending summers in Charlevoix her entire life and the house used to belong to her parents. We both love this little corner of the world and take advantage of the area to boat and be on the water whenever possible.

We are blessed with five children and two grandchildren.

Bob & Sally Winter purchased this house in 2009

Why Bob & Sally Winter chose Charlevoix

This is family property, Sally's parents purchased the home in the 1960's. It is a very special house with an extra welcoming and special feel about it. We redecorated it a few years ago, refinished the floors and added modern amenities like air-conditioning and cable TV.

What makes this house unique

By far the best thing about this house is amazing view it offers of the harbor. From boats passing through to sun dancing on the water to the hustle and bustle of downtown there's plenty to watch from the comfort of the backyard.
