Sitting on its own sandy beach in a nature reserve, this newly remodeled Lake Michigan home offers stunning views and beautiful sunsets. The master bedroom suite has a picture perfect view of Lake Michigan that you can view from your California King bed or step outside onto the spacious deck to have your morning coffee. There are two other roomy bedrooms, one with two twin beds and the other with a California King bed. The lower level hosts a new bunk room with two sets of twin bunk beds. The home has lots of natural light, beautiful white-washed ceiling beams, and a very open feel. The kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances and the dining room seats 10 people, which is perfect for those family dinners. There is even a wine and cheese bar. All of this, and only a quick bike ride to downtown Charlevoix and short drive to Boyne Mountain.

Charlevoix , MI

Family vacation

Review by Gail G.
We had a wonderful time with the family at this vacation home. It was perfect for the ten of us! The house was great, the private beach was perfect, the rooms were large...we loved it,Our only suggestion was the drinking glasses were scarce.the kitchen was supplied for everything possible, but we had to get glasses and dish towels. Other than that, it was perfect,!

Manager Response:
Gail, I am so glad this home offered everything you needed to have a great family vacation. I will absolutely talk to the owners about getting additional glass wear. I am sorry you had to purchase dish towels- we provide 2 sets per kitchen in hopes that you can always have one clean. We look forward to the possibility of working with you again. Terri, NME

Delightful for Young and Old

We stayed at Lake Michigan Retreat for a week; my husband and me, our daughter and son-in-law, and their boys, ages 4 and 1.The sand beach was perfect for the boys. The chairs on the beach were great for the fire pit, and watching the boys, and watching the water and sunsets.The house was wonderful. Nicely equipped and plenty of space. Safe (mostly) for the little one. Short drive into town. An hour away from Mackinac Island. It was a good location and we had a great time.

Beautiful home with a stunning view of Lake Michigan

Check in was a breeze with the manager texting me timely instructions. We were staying for the wedding of our son with nine family members including 3 grandsons. The beach had a play area with a slide but the beach itself was a great draw for the grandkids. The fire pit was used and is very safe with decorative block and a fire ring and perfect for making s’mores. The interior was spacious with useable furniture that looked great. The beds were very comfortable-even the downstairs bunk beds. Kitchen was well stocked for a lot of meal prep we did. Washer and dryer a great plus. Overall I could not have chosen a better place for our 6 day stay.

Elizabeth, Thanks so much for the great review. The owners of this property have done a great job at making it the perfect home away from home for all to enjoy. The beach and back yard are even better when there is not a layer of snow on it. See you soon in the sand vs the snow. Terri, NME

Great Northern Michigan Experience

Location is great, very close to Charlevoix, not too far from Petosky, Harbor Springs or Traverse City. Discovered Michigan's wine country and near lots of golf. Best part was s'mores on Lake Michigan beach and fantastic sunsets. Fell in love with "up north" again. Thank you.

Jacqueline- Whats not to love about Northern Michigan and this house. It does have it all and is close to so many wonderful small towns and all that Northern Michigan has to offer. We hope to see you again soon. The bonfire and sunset are Terri, NME

Nice home

Review by Dyania M.
Overall the house is very clean and modern feel to it . It has a beach front and nice outdoor seating . A great place for a big family to go on vacation together has a grill and cute playset and bonfire all on lake you really don’t ever have to leave the house . One complaint I do have is that I was not aware that the extra room with the bunk beds is in the basement and with young children this isn’t a practical room to be used I was a little disappointed in that .

Hi Hussein, thanks for your great review of the house. I did just check real quick to verify that we do describe the house as having a set of bunk beds being located on the lower level of the house. I apologize for any confusion there may have been. This home as you described is the perfect place for a vacation with things to offer every age group. We hope to see you back in Northern Michigan during your next vacation. Terri,NME

Our perfect Lake Michigan vacation

Review by Rebecca T.
I hate to let the secret out, but this property is everything we were looking for! Super cute, comfortable, freshly renovated home right on Lake Michigan with a private sandy beach. We loved being close to Charlevoix and Petoskey and our kids had the time of their lives. We want to come back every year!

Manager Response:
Rebecca, I am so glad that you all were able to enjoy this great home. You had the perfect family dynamic for this type of home. The boys could run and play in the sand and swing set while your husband and parents watch, while hopefully you had your feet up and concentrated on that baby belly. I look forward to meeting the little one and welcoming you back next summer. Terri, NME


Review by Michael L.

Spring Wedding

Upon arrival we found the home to be as described on the website. The interior of the home was beautifully decorated, the furniture was spacious and comfortable, and more than met the needs of our family of five. We found the home to be furnished with all of the amenities that we would need for a long weekend. The view from the west side of the home was complimented by the many windows which afforded a great view of the landscaping, surrounding wooded area and lake. Even though it was an April visit, we were blessed to have been able to enjoy spending a little time outside on one of the many decks. The representative for the Lake Michigan Retreat (Ruth) went out of her way during our entire stay to ensure that our needs were met. She was welcoming, gracious and very accommodating. We truly appreciated all that she did for us during our stay in Charlevoix. We look forward to returning to this beautiful home next May.
