Lake Charlevoix was named the first runner-up for America’s favorite lake by USA Today!



Lake Michigan Life

It’s hard to know where to even begin describing this 4 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom Michigan Norway red pine log home. We could start with the expansive kitchen, the inviting mother-in-law suite, or the incredible view of Lake Michigan. 

It’s artistically non-conformist: an eclectic mix of the expected western ambiance combined with urban reclaim chic. Each of the 8 fireplaces has salvaged architectural elements. Can you find the confessional door, the leaded doors from a Chicago industrial building, or the cleverly disguised file cabinet? Elegant but relaxed; delightfully one-off. Ready to take a look?

As pristine as the day the first wave swept across its shore. 

This home was built to the highest standards and has been maintained in the same way, with large diameter, hand-peeled Michigan Norway red pine.

The home speaks for itself. It’s not just about the nuts and bolts of the house — numbers of bedrooms and baths, counter top materials and square footage — it’s also got heart. A lot of heart. The nooks and crannies. The extra-special details. The places where love shines through. 

Tranquility at its finest

Master the art of sleep in this cozy bedroom. Or choose from one of three additional bedrooms, one with bunkbeds! Just imagine drifting away to sleep whilst gazing at the stars, only to be awoken at dawn with an incredible view of sun dancing across the water.

We saved the best for last…  the ever-enchanting mother-in-law suite! We will warn you that once you’ve laid your eyes on this fortress, you may never forget it…and that’s a great thing.

Staircase from heaven

Imagine sweeping down this curving staircase to make your grand entrance for the evening. With quality construction, maintenance, décor, landscaping, neighborhood—this house is truly the whole package. Clean lines, quality features, spirited character, and remarkable views are part of what sets this lovely home apart from its neighbors. (The other part is a nice buffer of woods.)

Office Space

With two private offices, you would actually never have to leave home again. Sit and read (or write) numerous tales, pen a thank you note, or check off your daily digital tasks. 

Picture perfect

What a spectacular place to watch a meteor shower, boats drifting along the shore, or children building sandcastles. Whether you prefer the sunrise or sunset, this view is captivating for anyone.
