Peaceful family vacation spot
This quaint cottage in Charlevoix is situated on the south arm of Lake Charlevoix in Villa Nueva. There are about eight or ten cottages in this neighborhood which has an exclusive, private beach area that was never crowded. There is little boat traffic past this beach, which made for a peaceful, relaxing experience. The lake does have a raft for the kids, which was fun for them to play on. It should be noted that the cottage does not sit directly on the beach; there is a little bit of a walk to get there. However, it is not long and we actually appreciated having our own private space to congregate for dinner on the back patio. The property was very well maintained and clean. The owner was a pleasure to work with--friendly and provided accurate details of the property. The cottage was comfortable and homey. There were no surprises regarding the information I was given; it was as I expected. We enjoyed going into the town of Charlevoix to visit the many shops and restaurants. The pier is another beautiful attraction to visit, especially during sunset. You must visit the fresh fish place (right on the water; can't remember the name of it!) in order to try the catch of the day and the whitefish pate. Charlevoix is also close (withing an hour or two) to Petoskey and other northern Michigan attractions, including Traverse City, Leelanau, Sleeping Bear Dunes. and Mackinaw Island. If you are looking for a peaceful location to vacation with your family, this cottage will provide the relaxation you are looking for along with proximity to northern Michigan cities that provide an excellent tour of what makes Michigan great!
