5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
Exactly wat we needed! Very clean comfortable place to stay and less than 45 minutes to Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands. Had fun exploring the Christmas lights through Charlevoix and Petoskey too.

5/5 Excellent

Positive stay
There were 7 members of my family who stayed for a week. The kids really enjoyed the air hockey table. It was a bit too chilly to spend time outside. Kristen was very prompt when we had questions. We did think two of the rooms had a double bed and a twin bed, based on the photos, but they were all twin beds. We were able to improvise and made for a very comfortable stay. Close to downtown Charlevoix and other sight seeing opportunities! Overall, we had a wonderful week!

5/5 Excellent

A quick getaway
Everything as advertised. Although more space than my wife and I needed, it was everything w wanted.

5/5 Excellent

Good location
We had a very good time staying in Charlevoix ... Had only one issue with the wifi that was not working but overall our stay experience was good.

3/5 Okay

Not a 1 family house
We loved the area; without question, we will visit again. The house was clean enough, and we certainty enjoyed our stay. However after renting a property listed as a house under the description of “off the beaten path”, we were surprised to arrive next door to a bed & breakfast with another guest sharing our rental in what turned out to be a duplex. Again, we enjoyed our stay very much. We had no complaints other than the inaccuracy of the listing.
