About The Owner

I went to high school in Charlevoix and miss the beautiful summers. The residents are all very friendly and the town is a nice break from big city life. While staying at the house, we enjoy walking downtown and seeing the drawbridge. There are many shops and restaurants to enjoy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

This property is just a few blocks from everything in Charlevoix. You do not have to drive at all to go to grocery stores, restaurants, Downtown Charlevoix, Michigan Beach, or East Park.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for the use of your house for the week in Charlevoix, we had a great time. We were able to hear and see some of the best fireworks in the country for Venetian. Charleviox is a beautiful place and the weather was great compared to what we are having in Indiana. We will keep you place in mind if we travel up that way in the future.

Charming home, perfect location and a great price!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a two-week vacation in Charlevoix and were lucky enough to find this home. The home has been updated to include air conditioning, Internet, cable TV and more. The property was clean and well maintained and talk about a great location!! A two-block walk one way and you're on Bridge Street in Downtown Charlevoix with all the shops, restaurants and Marina. A two-block walk the other way and you're at Lake Michigan with a beach and a wonderful walkway along the water with a lighthouse at the entrance to Lake Michigan. I love to walk in the mornings and I was up bright and early and walked every day (sometimes even twice a day) because it was such a nice area in which to walk. The house is also located across from the Charlevoix Library. You may not think about that being any big deal, but the Charlevoix Library is so awesome! They had several events at the library which we attended (inside and outside). I encourage guests to try and catch one of their lectures on the history of the museum - fascinating. If you're a golfer (which we both are) you are close to many of Michigan's fantastic courses. You're also a close drive to Harbor Springs and Petosky but you'll be delighted to return "home" to Charlevoix where I find it to be much more relaxing and the hustle and bustle of traffic is much less. I could go on and on about all the close destinations for fun and activities within a short drive from Charlevoix but you should try them for yourself. The owner, Laura, could not have been more helpful with providing information that we needed to know whether by providing a basket of informational brochures kept at the house or by being able to call or text. I would highly recommend this property to our family and friends. We definitely will be back and this property is at the top of our list when we visit Charlevoix.

Family Vacation in Vintage Charlevoix Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including kids and grandchildren, rented this vintage home for a week's vacation. The home had plenty of room for all of us; the media room upstairs was a great place for the kids to play games in their own space. Our goal was to find a home that was within walking distance for all to the downtown area and to the beach. This home was in the perfect location to accomplish that requirement. We greatly appreciated the home having air conditioning also! The owner was very kind and accommodating, and the caretaker was available to answer our questions. It was an enjoyable vacation, and we would recommend this home to those who are looking for a downtown Charlevoix rental.

Hickory golf long weekend for eight

  • 5 of 5

We found the house well equipped, comfortable and relaxing with a homey atmosphere. Fine dining is within easy walking distance along with downtown shopping in one direction and Lake Michigan and a park in the other.

Great Rental Home in Downtown Charlevoix

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home recently because our daughter was getting married in Charlevoix. It was a great location and had everything we needed. It also had ample space for our children and grandchildren when they arrived for the wedding. The grandchildren enjoyed the great selection of movies and games and the dedicated upstairs room so they didn't disturb anyone else. We had friends and relatives from all over the United States in town and the location allowed them to see a little bit of down town and then stop by to visit. The home was very clean, lots of lawn type chairs to sit outside. We definitely were pleased with the house, the communication by the owners and the caretaker of the home. We will be back to stay in this house again!

Could not hve asked for a better place!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay in Charlevoix, best we've stayed in yet. A short walk to the shoppes, and the best ice cream in the world at Kilwin's! Cutting throught the library (that has a wonderful outdoor music garden for the kids to explore) makes it only 2 blocks to the beach. The house was clean and stocked full of movies, everything you'd need in a kitchen, and wireless internet. It was a great stay for my family girls get away , 10 of us! We will be back to this house every year.

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was key to our family having one of our best vacations ever. To us a vacation means less stress and complication, and the house on Mason delivered with its ideal location. Our little ones (ages four and six) could easily make the short 2-3 block walk to the beach or town. There were a couple days where we didn't touch the car keys.

This house has vintage charm combined with updates in the places important to us (bedrooms and bathrooms). It was clean and well kept. We had enough space to spread out and make ourselves at home.

We certainly would recommend this house and will look no further next time we head to Charlevoix.
