Charlevoix Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

'The unrivaled beauty and charm of this classic resort town makes it the crown jewel of northern Michigan vacation destinations. Its setting in the midst of Lake Michigan, Lake Charlevoix and Round Lake provides a magical appeal that has attracted guests for more than 100 years.

Blue water, white sand, gleaming yachts in one of the world’s most beautiful harbors — that’s just the beginning of what makes Charlevoix so captivating. Elegant Victorian homes, white picket fences and vibrant petunias accent the gracious atmosphere. Wonderful parks provide the perfect place to sit back and simply while away the time.

The main street in Charlevoix is only four blocks long, but you’ll want to leave plenty of time to stroll from one end to the other. The number and quality of art galleries, clothing boutiques and gourmet restaurants is certain to bring several stops along the way (and that's not even counting all of the fudge, candy, and ice cream shops :-) ).

All this and more awaits you in Charlevoix, where your vacation memories will be treasured for years to come.'

Rent this new, beautifully appointed, two bedroom, two full bath Condo in the beautiful Charlevoix Country Club. Easily accessible lower unit with no stairs. The Master bedroom has a wonderful king-size bed with a full bathroom. The second bedroom has two full-size beds and it's own full bathroom and includes a kitchenette with sink, refrigerator and microwave (can be used as a lock-off if so desired with it's own entrance). Condo includes a fully furnished kitchen. Also includes all linens and towels. Free WiFi high speed internet access. Three flat screen TV's and cable TV are available. Unit also has full-size washer and dryer. The walkout patio off the back on the first fairway of the Country Club Golf Course is a great place for the morning coffee while watching the golfers go by, or a relaxing place in the evening to watch the deer enjoy the golf course.

Renters will get unlimited golf at the country club (contact the proshop for current green fees, ranging from around $25 to $75, depending on the day and time) and can eat at the country club restaurants. Renters can use our Country Club membership for free use of the fitness center, swimming pool and tennis courts. (Edit; Currently, as of August of 2016, the Country Club has said that renters may not use the pool or fitness center. They waiver on this periodically, so check with me if this is important to you.)

Charlevoix is an excellent area for year round family fun. From the many lakes, beaches and parks for Summer fun, the most beautiful area in the State for colorful Fall leaves, to the many surrounding Winter Ski resorts. Also, loads of local cross country skiing and snowmobiling trails. And don't forget the many special weeks around Charlevoix, such as the Venetian Festival around the third week of July, AppleFest around the middle of October, and many other shows, festivals, and fairs.

And bikers, joggers, hikers and skaters, don't forget the Little Traverse Wheelway bicycle path that cuts right across the front of the Charlevoix Country Club. This 29 mile long paved path runs from Charlevoix all the way to Harbor Springs. Just north of the Country Club, the trail offers a unique 3/4 mile long boardwalk bridging a wetland area rich with wildlife. The trail includes several beautiful stretches directly along the Lake Michigan shoreline, perfect for finding Petosky Stones, and includes two parks that are perfect for a picnic or scenic resting spot.

Charlevoix is the perfect hopping off place for exploring northern Michigan. Almost everything in northern Michigan, including Traverse City, Petoskey, Gaylord, Mackinac Island and the Mackinac Bridge, Leelanau Penisula and the Leelanau Sands Casino, Sleeping Bear Dunes, wineries, and many of the Midwest's best downhill ski resorts.

About Steve Bowen

We loved the Charlevoix area so much that we purchased this condo to use ourselves so we could visit often... and shortly after buying, we realized we loved the area so much, that we never wanted to leave.... to we bought a house and moved here. So now we live here year round (yes, even thru those darn winter months), and rent our condo out to others so they can come visit and enjoy Charlevoix.

Why Steve Bowen chose Northern Michigan

We looked at every place around when we were looking for our own Charlevoix vacation spot, and this is hands down the best place to stay in Charlevoix. Perfect location not only for exploring Charlevoix, but also perfectly centrally located in northern Michigan for visiting Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Traverse City, the ski resorts, Mackinac Island, Leelanau Penisula, and everything else northern Michigan has to offer. And with all the amenities that Charlevoix Country Club has to offer, including the golf course, restaurants, swimming pool, tennis courts, a top notch fitness center, wonderful hiking all on the paved golf cart paths, the Little Traverse Wheelway bicycle path that cuts right across the front of the Charlevoix Country Club, you would never even have to get into your car or leave the country club to have a wonderful stay.

What makes this condo unique

Our Country Club membership is transferrable to our guests so that you may use all of the amenities of the club, including golf, restaurants, swimming pool, tennis courts, and fitness center... (Edit; Currently, as of August of 2016, the Country Club has said that renters may not use the pool or fitness center. They waiver on this periodically, so check with me if this is important to you.)

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, 5year old son and I stayed in this beautiful condo in August 2008. We have stayed in Charlevoix before, but were very pleased with the accomodations this year. Steve and Carol maintain an inpeccably clean place and it is very nicely decorated. The location is perfect...close to downtown, Petosky and Mackinac Island. We would definately consider staying here again. My son loved the Gem car!!

Beautiful Grounds and Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. The pool and tennis courts were great (never crowded). Charlevoix is the perfect vacation spot for families. It was not too touristy yet had plenty of fun activities. One of the best vacations we've had!

Very comfortable condo, beautiful setting, great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I stayed at the condo in October of 2011 while visiting Charlevoix and were very pleased with the accomodations. The condo was clean, very tastefully decorated, comfortable, and had a beautiful view out the living room window. The condo was even nicer than the pictures reflected! It had everything we needed. The kitchen had necessary equipment and utensils, laundry room, TVs with cable and DVD and VCRs.

The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. The owner has an electric cart (like a small car almost) that you can use to drive around the golf course and we really had fun riding on it.

Charlevoix has some great restaurants, Grey Gables and Whitefish and Chips. While there we went on the "Tunnel of Trees" ride and the fall colors were beautiful. We stopped at Leggs Inn in Cross Village for lunch. We also went Zip Lining at Boyne Mountain. I went Salmon Fishing on the Boyne River with my Dad. Great shops in Petoskey, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix. Be sure and get some cookies at Tom's Mom's Cookies in Harbor Springs. So, there is lots to do!

I would definitely recommend the condo. We will be coming back again soon.

We have been in Charlevoi...

  • 5 of 5

We have been in Charlevoix a couple times before but never stayed overnight.

Steve's Condo is the perfect getaway for a weekend or even a week.

It is very lovely furnished with much detail and you can see they put lots of effort into it. The surrounding area is also very nice.

We made trips to Petoskey, Mackinac Island, Traverse City and the UP.

I would definitely stay here again.

Highly recommended!
