Prepare to fall in love! Our charming knotty pine cottage is located right on the shores of beautiful Lake Charlevoix in the quaint town of East Jordan. This lakeside town is a hidden gem in Northern Michigan! The serene property boasts 50 feet of private lake frontage/beach with a gorgeous sunset view overlooking the South Arm. This is the perfect base for fishing and skiing adventures! A private dock and boat hoist are available for your boating pleasure (during June-August)! We provide a canoe and two kayaks, making this the ideal place for enjoying the beautiful lake and nearby river! The gradual drop off out the back yard is perfect for swimming and paddling. Unlike many other waterfront properties in the area, this cottage is located on a quiet street off of the main road, with public parks and a ball field located right across the street. This is the perfect spot for families!
In addition to the breathtaking lakefront, the yard provides the perfect space for barbecues, fires and frolicking. A lake-side fire pit and new Weber grill are included. The large pines and serene landscaping on the property offer privacy and shade. Our cottage is the perfect getaway for all, including couples and families with kids.
The cottage is walking distance to the quaint downtown of East Jordan - with restaurants, shops, and recreational areas all within walking distance. The cottage is just steps away from the East Jordan tourism park, which includes public amenities including a large playground, tennis/basketball courts (tennis rackets included), a boat launch, and beach. In addition, there are also boat and canoe rentals located near the property. Rent a boat or bring your own! We provide two kayaks and a canoe for your use. We have a private dock/hoist (up to 5,500 lbs) available for your boating adventures (during summer season).
Lake Charlevoix is considered one of the best lakes in the United States based on a poll by USA today. In addition to the lake, access to the Jordan River is a short paddle from your private beach and is a popular destination for canoeing and kayaking. Beach toys are also provided for kids. The cottage is the perfect location for those who enjoy swimming, boating, paddling, and other aquatic adventures!
