The Association property consists of about 140 feet of water frontage with two large stair cases to the shoreline and a new beautiful docking system with steps into the water. Our unit comes with a private boat slip that can hold up to a 30 foot boat. The area of the lake between the shoreline to the docking system is shallow and particularly great for little ones as the docking system also creates a nice barrier between the shallow and deeper waters. The water is not mucky or full of weeds. This is a massive inland lake so naturally there will be some stones washed closer to the shore. Areas on the South arm are generally not as rocky as the North arm. Because this is an inland lake, this property like most have some type of retaining wall to prevent damaging erosion. Personally I'd rather lay out and relax in my lawn chair than on ground getting sand in my refreshment. ; ) If you are looking for a sandy beach we are located extremely close to two public beaches or enjoy boat ride to Young State Park to the north.
Prices vary and are seasonal.
MORE ABOUT LAKE CHARLEVOIX:
Lake Charlevoix the Magnificent is the 3rd largest inland lake in Michigan and was recently voted 2nd Best Inland Lake in the USA. There's 56 miles of shoreline which is surrounded by quaint resort towns with nice shops and excellent restaurants. Our location allows for easy access to all the surrounding downtown areas.
THE WATER: The water on the South arm is considered the calmer side of the Lake. Our area is ideal for water skiing/wakeboarding/knee boarding/tubing and fishing. And kayaking. You can fish right off the finger of our private slip. We're close to the Jordan valley river which is awesome for kayaking! If you want bigger waters then boat down thru the infamous narrows at the Ironton Ferry and venture out to the massive and beautiful North Arm. You can even boat thru Lake Charlevoix & Round Lake (downtown Charlevoix) and go out into Lake Michigan.
In the Winter: We are located within 15 minutes of every small town surrounding magnificent Lake Charlevoix, We are 12 miles from BOYNE/MOUNTAIN AND AVALANCHE BAY. We are close to THE BREEZEWAY. Awesome location for snowmobiling and we have seperate parking for your trailer and snowmobiles.
IN THE SUMMER the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix is the place to be for EXCELLENT fishing right off the dock. This side of the Lake has the best water conditions for jet skiing, water skiing/tubing and knee boarding and kayaking. The South Arm of the Lake is not as Rough as the North Arm, but you have access to the large North Arm from the South Arm thru the famous Narrows by Ironton Ferry. We are close to the Jordan Valley River and Highly recommend kaying down the River. It's beautiful and fun - a great experience!! If you don’t have your own boat or jet skis, all you have to do is go a few doors down to Swan Valley Marina where you can rent one! We have a private boat slip where you can park your watercraft. We are not on Round Lake or within walking distance to downtown Charlevoix, which overlooks Round Lake.
IN THE WINTER were ideally located in the heart of snowmobiliers heaven as we are near the East Jordan Valley and only 12 miles from Boyne Mountain and Avalanche Bay Waterpark! THIS IS A GREAT LOCATION FOR ICE FISHING!!
The location is ideal because it gives you great access to all your favoite attractions. Were close to the City of East Jordan and the best snowmobing trails. Remember Lake Charlevoix is huge!

Reviews for this vacation condo rental in Charlevoix, Michigan
September 5, 2013
We rented this townhouse on Lake Charlevoix with our two young children and another family. We had a such a wonderful time! The townhouse is very clean, with updated fixtures and appliances. The furniture was comfortable. The townhouse is on three levels with more than enough space. We spent quite a bit of time sitting on the porch or in the yard while the children played along the shore and in the water. It is shallow for quite a ways which is great for little ones. The property is very well maintained. The weather was great. The townhouse came with a boat slip that was easy to access and use. Lake Charlevoix itself is just beautiful. We were spoiled by our many adventures on the water. The home-owners have gathered all sorts of local information and made a wonderful reference binder with lots of things to do. The townhouse is located close to Charlevoix, Boyne, Petoskey and even Traverse City isn't too far - all great locations for both summer and winter activities! We found the owners to be very nice and a pleasure to work with. We have finally found a place that we could rent as "regulars" and we are so excited about that!

We had a great time. The condo has beautiful water views and is very clean, though a little off the beaten path.
Our awesome Lake Charlevoix just took runner up to Lake Charlevoix as the Best Lake in America Competition by USA today! : ) The location of our waterfront condo on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix which places you within 3-15 drving miles from Boyne City, City of East Jordan and city of Charlevoix which actually overlooks the marina on Round Lake. Check out this USA Today Article of Why you should visit Lake CharlevoixBy Laura Bly, USA TODAYUpdated 6d 3h ago Comments
Tahoe came out on top in our recent reader poll on America's best lake, and I'll be exploring the popular alpine outpost later this week for a travel story running Aug. 10. But as its many fans made clear, the second-place finisher has plenty to offer, as well.
Just east of Lake Michigan, this inland lake offers an idyllic getaway.CAPTIONBy Harbor House Publishers
Though I grew up in southern Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Mendota (a sentimental favorite, but not on our shortlist), I wasn't familiar with runner up Lake Charlevoix, Michigan - or another nearby lake north of Traverse City that earned several write-in votes, Torch Lake.

Now, I'm "smitten with the mitten" (a reference to Michigan's hand-shaped geography).
A few arguments in its favor from our readers:
Nancy M. Dammann: "To be fair, all these lakes are amazing. But here are a couple of other Lake Charlevoix facts worth mentioning--from any point on Lake Charlevoix, you can sail to any ocean in the world and many other lakes. Near the mouth of the lake, there is a natural safe harbor that often shelters international sailors and boaters who have left the oceans in the fall, under the false assumption that the Great Lakes will be safer than the oceans. Charlevoix's harbors have often hosted storm fleeing sailboats and provided them a home throughout entire winters. Lake Charlevoix has also been a seasonal destination since pre-Columbian times, providing an important summer place to Native Americans in the area. In addition, residents are also trying to raise funds to buy a significant chunk of lake shore (a former summer camp) and turn it into a permanent public park. The lake is 18 miles long, 3.5 miles wide at its widest, and has two arms (the South arm is 11 or 12 miles long and often much calmer than the Northern arm). It is home to loons, and ducks, and fish, the occasional otter, gorgeous boats, and amazing people and communities."
Karen Kent Guzniczak: "We've owned a retail store in Boyne City for 22 years and talk to thousands of people every year from all over the world. The comments we hear are always about how blessed we are. People are amazed at how clean and clear Lake Charlevoix is. A young child from our area went on vacation with his parents to the Caribbean and when they they flew over the water he said 'Look Lake Charlevoix.'"
Stephanie Balch: "Sandy beaches, access to restaurants, great fishing, gorgeous harbors in quaint Northern Michigan towns ... and a short boat ride through Round Lake and the Pine River Channel puts you on Lake Michigan! Not a more beautiful lake to view the fall foliage."
Laurie Szabo-Dill: "Got married overlooking Lake Charlevoix, and still have people tell me it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to!"
Chase Petroelje: "With several small, tourist-adored towns surrounding it, Lake Charlevoix boasts some of the world's finest sunsets, beaches, boating and gastronomy ... a shallow ledge outlines the entire lake, making it ideal for families, and anchoring for a day of relaxation. If that's not enough, it was the location for the wedding of world-famous author Ernest Hemingway and his wife. You know you've found an extraordinary lake when much of it is bordered by multimillion dollar houses, private water planes, and some of the largest yachts you'll ever see!"
G.T. Long: "Lake Charlevoix is where the Gods swim....other lakes may be pretty, but Lake Charlevoix is spiritual in its beauty, clear, clean, deep, and big, situated on hills and a hundred shades of green
Charlevoix, Michigan Condo Experience
July 22, 2011
The condo is clean, clean, clean. The beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything a cook needs and more. It is easy driving to Charlevoix, Boyne City and Petoskey. There is a nice firepit for evenings. It is directly on the lake which is clean, and also is a good fishing lake. If you decide to rent, there is a marina within walking distance. It is far enough removed from town to have some much needed peace and quiet from our busy lives yes close enough to get to the action if you wish. Have a great trip and don't miss this condo!
