The location of the guest house is perfect for getting away from everything for a few days. The house is bigger than I expected it to be and the location was everything I was hoping. I would definitely go back again!

On balance, this is a wonderful place for a couple who are on intimate terms and do not mind walking out of a shower while the other partner is making coffee in the kitchen. Can be very romantic in fact... However, I would not recommend this place for a family with kids who are old enough to be self-conscious! The hosts are super - very friendly, always available and happy to help with any needs. The location is fantastic - we spent most of our time outside, enjoying the little strip of private beach. There is also a larger - public - beach a short walk from the home, which was not busy at all. The location really is superb. Description was fairly accurate but failed to mention that one of the bedrooms has no windows. In our opinion it really cannot be considered a bedroom. The bed mattress was on a makeshift foundation of two other mattresses which were smaller in size than the top mattress. Also, the room had a very strong musty smell which made the space uninhabitable for our kids. We ended up using the room to store bags and two of us slept on couches in the living room. Listing also did not mention that the bath/shower was connected to the kitchen (around a corner), without any door separation. As a small aside, the electrical wiring is a bit funky - when the lights are turned on in the shower area, they also go on in the living room. This made for an odd situation when mom or dad wanted to shower at night, after the kids were asleep (one of them slept on a sofa in the living room, as noted above). In general, the property is somewhat in a state of disrepair - the second-story window of the secondary building (facing the water) was propped up by 2x4s and looked like it could easily collapse if someone bumped into a 2x4. We made sure the kids did not come near that area. It appears also that a stairs/deck project - leading down to the water - was started some time ago but not completed (the area does not appear to be under construction now), just the support beams are in place. We are reluctant to write this mixed review but feel it is important to let people know about some of these considerations. It seems the owners have made a real effort to create a nice space for visitors and have the best intentions. The per-night cost is quite affordable for a place that's right on the water so we do not feel the space was overpriced. You get what you pay for. It's just not an ideal space for four people. Just fine for a couple who do not plan to cook much (other than grilling) and can roll with the somewhat funky amenities.

Nice views of Lake Michigan and reasonably close to Charlevoix to go into town. Our main issue was no wifi despite it being listed as available. Our Att cell service was quite spotty in the immediate area. If you want a nice remote off the grid ( there was a small TV available ) spot it is fine. Kitchen adequate for small meals with coffee maker and microwave and small dorm style refrigerator. Main bedroom was quite comfortable.

I cannot rave enough about the picturesque destination of this wonderful cottage on the lake! The convenience of the location was exactly what we'd hoped for to explore the area, and Steve was on property to greet us when we arrived. He was very accommodating and knowledgeable about events taking place in the area during our stay, and we felt very welcomed. This quiet little gem is a must see, and we definitely look forward to returning in the future. We took part in every aspect of the offerings from Steve, Janice, and Sarah's place, the kids swam in the lake; while my husband and I enjoyed sunsets on the beach. If your looking for a family friendly get away you've found it!

Steve, Janice, & Sarah's charming compound provides an adorable two-bedroom cottage with a living room & kitchen separating the bedrooms. There is easy beach access & a sweet little porch perched above Lake Michigan for perfect sunsets. The cottage is cheery & has a little kitchen w/essentials provided. The hosts are very nice & very knowledgeable about the area. Charlevoix is just 8 miles north of the cottage & Elk Rapids is about 25 miles south, Traverse City is about 45 miles south. Petoskey is an easy drive 27 miles north, & Boyne City & the skiing area NE of Norwood are nearby.
