Guest Reviews of charlevoix's hidden gem

Charlevoix , MI

Charlevoix Fun

Excellent on all counts. Daring 'hidden' gem close to town and gorgeous sunsets. It had a large patio and was in a quiet neighborhood. We would rent there again in a minute.

Truly a Gem

Review by Tammy W.
We had a wonderful stay in Charlevoix. Being walking distance from town, Lake Michigan and Lake Charlevoix was the best of all worlds. The house was perfect for us - charming quiet neighborhood, plenty of space for two couples and our dogs, great outdoor space, and plenty of kitchen accessories, tools and gadgets. We hope to be back next year!

Hidden Gem Charlevoix

Review by Dale B.
Great location near downtown and beaches in a quiet neighborhood. Home is very comfortable and very clean. Home had everything needed for a week’s vacation. Kitchen and bathrooms well supplied . Backyard very nice with great deck which we used for meals and just enjoying the evening. Butterfly bush really attracted monarchs, so fun to watch. Dog friendly is important to us so the house is very accommodating. My only add on would be a mat/rug by the front door to wipe your feet upon entering. Don’t know if you can do that for safety reasons. We would enjoy renting the house again.

Quick Summer Get Away

This house was very clean and in a nice quiet neighborhood. Took our dog with us and he enjoyed the fenced in back yard. Location was great for going to Traverse City and Mackinaw City and close to town. Would definately recommend this rental to friends and family.
