About the area

The city is situated between Lake Michigan and the western end of Lake Charlevoix, which drains into Lake Michigan through the short Round Lake/Pine River complex in the heart of downtown Charlevoix. The Charlevoix South Pier Light Station marks the opening of the channel onto Lake Michigan. Charlevoix’s Round Lake has been called the best natural harbor on Lake Michigan. The only way to get from Lake Michigan to East Jordan, Boyne City and other sites on Lake Charlevoix by boat is via Charlevoix. As a result, much commercial, industrial, and recreational boat traffic passes through Charlevoix. About the owner: Growing up in Northern Michigan and spending summers there, we have been spoiled with all that Charlvoix and the surrounding area has to offer year round. Our entire family of all ages loves being “up north” anytime of year. We can be your personal concierge to anything in the area. Why the Owner Chose Charlevoix: We chose this cottage because it is located down the street from our childhood family home where we grew up spending summers. The lake front, the neighborhood and all the wonderful people that live there year round/seasonally. Most of all location, location, location. Knot Just A Cottage is 2 1/2 miles to downtown Chalevoix. 15 minutes to Petosky and Boyne City. Traverse City and Mackinaw are only an hour drive. You have plenty to keep you busy ( or not) for an entire summer! Our kid’s grew up coming here and it’s become a se!cond home to us that we love to share with other people who will appreciate and enjoy it like we do. At 17,000 acres, Lake Charlevoix is the third largest inland lake in Michigan with access to Lake Michigan. It is a great destination for boating, sailing, skiing, and fishing. The city of Charlevoix is 2 miles away with many excellent restaurants, shopping and public park w/concerts and festivals Find us on FB & Instagram at Knot Just A Cottage for more info.photo's and area information. Pine Point Beach is 2 blocks from cottage and a great swimming beach for all ages . Downtown Charlevoix is only 2.5 miles and offers great restaurants and shopping. Boyne City, Bay Harbor & Petoskey are only 15-20 min. away with more options. The famous newly re-opened Landings Restaurant is 10-15 min. away and in Charlevoix.

“Loved knot just a cottage”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

We stayed at the cottage at the end of June at had a great stay and didn't want to leave. The owners along with Ellen the welcome person were awesome in communicating everything to get the week off on the right foot. The place is in a great location not far from town and not far from other destination cities. It's also in a pretty quiet place even though there is a road out front there is hardly any cars that come by. Its also great just sitting out on the front deck and relaxing and grilling. The place is also laid out very nicely and the rooms are all spacious with excellent views. My favorite was to have the awesome view while taking a shower in the upstairs master bath. You have to see to believe. The place also has everything you need for cooking, grilling, partying, etc. Also have kayaks, basketball hoop, games etc to occupy everyone. The beach is not far down the road but we also swam right out in front off the dock. Also awesome that they supply firewood for fires which are right out front with great views. Only remote negative was that we were there when all the mayflies came in and they would swarm to any light at night. Supposedly they only come from inland lakes that are clean water sources so I guess it could be construed as positive also. My only regret was that I failed in my attempt to fill up the bottle cap jug but I guess maybe I can do it next year. This is truly a great place to stay with owners that really care about their place and strive to see that everything is in place so you can enjoy yourself. Thanks again for great experience.

Owner's reply: Jim- So happy you guys had a great time at Knot Just A Cottage. Thanks you for the nice review. We appreciate any and all feedback to ensure every guest has as good experience as you did. You are welcome back anytime. Thanks for taking care of my flowers. Suzy

“Amazing, PERFECT Cottage!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2016

Knot Just a Cottage is a one of a kind experience! We didn't want to leave! The cottage is adorable, cozy, stylish, clean, and so much fun. It was fully stocked with anything that we might need, with super soft bedding, and towels, to adorable furniture and decor. The front patio with uncompromised views of Lake Charlevoix that you get to enjoy from the beautiful outdoor furniture was definitely my favorite part. I spent every morning enjoying my coffee staring at the crystal clear water. Working with Suzy (the owner) was such an amazing experience, she is by far the most wonderful lady I have ever worked with. She sent me a care package weeks before the trip with brochures, menus, restaurant guides, and upcoming events, and when we arrived we had an adorable gift bag with toiletries, k-cups, bumper stickers, and more travel guides! Everyone we met in Charlevoix had amazing things to say about her, and the cottage. All around it was an unforgettable experience, and we cant wait until we come back next year. It is definitely an every year destination for us. You NEED to stay here to experience everything that Knot Just a Cottage is.

Owner's reply: Lindsie- So happy you enjoyed staying at Knot Just A Cottage and it exceeded your expectations. We look forward to having you back again soon. Suzy

We loved Knot just a Cottage! It was absolutely beautiful and extremely clean! The location is perfect for day trips and only a few minutes away from downtown Charlevoix. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a place to rent up north! We hope to be back again soon.

My family of 4 just left the cottage. We stayed for 5 days and loved every minute. Kitchen was stocked w/ all the pots/pan/cork screws we needed. Ate dinner on the deck and after the kids cleaned and my his am and I sat on the dock and watched the waves go by. We brought bikes and rode north from Petosky into the state park. Great spot. I'd stay there again. My kids said they wanted to go every year!

My husband and I had wonderful 5 days at this cottage. The weather was just perfect so we spent most of our time outside on the deck, relaxing and just taking in the views of the lake. The outside furniture is really comfortable, lots of seating, lounge chair and dining table. I spent a lot of time in the hammock reading a book. The cottage inside is super nice decorated and has everything you need. The kitchen if fully stocked and even comes with my favorite coffeemaker (Keurig). All the linens and towels are top quality. The whole house is very clean. A very nice touch, upon arrival a very nice lady ( Ellen, thank you) greeted us and showed us the house and answered all our questions. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. She helped us renting a boat for the day. We are looking forward to spend a couple of days this fall at Knot just a cottage .

The prettiest lake I've ever seen.....

Suzy,

Thank you for your prompt attention to the refund. We really enjoyed our time at the cottage! Everything was just as we expected and then some. My husband was very impressed, and he is not a guy who is "wowed" easily. Hope enjoyed herself too! She loved sitting outside, taking in the breezes and staring at the lake. Thanks again for allowing me to bring her, I so appreciated it and I understand why you don't usually accept pets...I wouldn't either If I owned your beautiful place ! Hope is 14, VERY attached to us, and has had two major orthopedic surgeries in the past 3 years, so I will not put her in a kennel and I even hesitate to have a good friend keep her.

I am thinking about coming back, maybe next August. Thanks again for making such a beautiful place to stay.

Cheers,

Sheryl
