Guest Reviews of 19 foster boat works

Charlevoix , MI


See my VRBO review.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Thank you Katelyn for the 5-Stars!

Quiet and clean!

The rental was spotless, the location was perfect, and loved the view. We only spent a weekend so the size was fine for 2 of us, might be a little small for a longer stay. We appreciated the supplies and the manual with condo and local information that was supplied. Our only suggestion would be to upgrade the sofa to a comfortable sectional and replace or remove those chairs. It would be nice to have a comfortable place to sit inside for evenings or rainy days. Also a bigger coffee maker would be great. Otherwise, it was great!

Clean and cozy!!

Review by Amy M.
We were very pleased with the accommodations for our long weekend. The condo was impeccably clean. Some parts are slightly dated, but the parts that truly matter, are not! The view of lake charlevoix is beautiful! I would definitely stay here again!!!

Decent place to hang your hat

Review by Wayne H.
The area is amazing, with terrific shops, hiking trails, and (in our case) gorgeous fall colors. This property has a great view of the lake and beautiful sunrises and is a decently maintained suite.

Manager Response:
Thanks for the great review Kevin. The marina view at Foster Boat Works is second to none. Perfect balcony to enjoy coffee and pastries in the morning or a drink and snacks in the evenings and enjoy the cool lake breezes. The owners did a great job remodeling the bathroom making it a great place to enjoy all that Charlevoix has to offer. Terri and the entire staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

First time to Michigan

Manager Response:
Kelly, Thanks for your great review for this cozy little Condo. The views are second to none and hope you had nice enough weather to sit out on the deck and watch the boats come into the marina. The owners are in the process of updating the condo and just recently completed the bathroom and will be doing other rooms as they have time. We look forward to the possibility of working with you again on your next trip to Northern Michigan. Terri and the entire staff of Northern Michigan Escapes

Review by Gary P.
Very quiet, relaxing week. Close enough to bike to Venetian activities without dealing with traffic. Everything we needed, minus WiFi, in an efficiency unit .

Lake Charlevoix 2019

A two week stay in a clean unit, a great location and accommodating weather! The entire facility is well maintained. The only issue (which did not affect us but could be a problem for others) was the elevator which was nonoperational the last 3 days of our stay. Highly recommend for a quiet, peaceful vacation!

Nancy thank you for your wonderful review of 19 Foster Boat Works. We are so glad that you were pleased with the condo and the location. We are sorry about the elevator, and know that that is being taken care of by the Foster Boat Works Association. We look forward to serving you in your future Northern Michigan vacations. Jodi, Northern Michigan Escapes.


Review by Steven B.
Top notch. The room was beautiful clean above and beyond what we could ask for.

Manager Response:
Steven, Wow- what a great review. Nothing is better than being able to step out on the deck and watch the boats come and go as you enjoy your morning coffee or your evening cocktail. We look forward to being able to work with you again. Terri, NME

Relaxing Retreat

Review by Roselyne P.
We had a wonderful week at Foster Boat Works Condo. The view over the marina and the Charlevoix Lake were gorgeous with paradise like sunrise and moonrise. The condo was ideal for two people; we appreciate being able to use the laundry room and the pool from the marina. Just one problem; no wifi available in the condo, so we used phone hotspots.
5 out of 5 stars
Manager Response:
Roselyne, I am so happy that you were able to enjoy your week at FBW. It is the perfect place to sit on the balcony and enjoy your morning coffee as well as a nice glass of wine to watch the sun and moon rise as you mentioned. I hope if your travels ever bring you back to Northern Michigan you look us up. Terri and the entire staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

Great Condo for 2 People!

We feel we had plenty of room and the everything was very clean. With the mini kitchen we were able to eat breakfast in and also had plenty of room for our snacks in the refrigerator. Loved the balcony!Ony suggestion would be to add wi-fi and a small grill for the balcony

Great stay!

Review by Bryan C.
Wonderful location, quiet and comfortable. Beautiful view of Northwest Marine and the East Jordan. Only gripe would be the lack of wifi. Although the complex has it the signal is very weak or will not connect.
