One of the most iconic homes on Mackinac Island is coming for sale! This beautiful cedar sided home is aptly named "Boardwalk Cottage". Once inside this lovely home, the bustle of the summer day fades away and one is greeted by the cool breeze off the lake and the sounds of the waves and the rustling trees. This amazing home was built by the McIntire family, the previous owners of The Hotel Iroquois. Mr. and Mrs. McIntire owned The Hotel Iroquois for over 65 years, and painstakingly took it from a boarding house, to an amazing Conde Nast award winning boutique hotel. In the early 1980's the McIntires started construction on Boardwalk Cottage. They built this premiere home that has become a grand jewel of the Island. This home has over 4200 square feet and has been lovingly cared for and meticulously maintained. There are three bedrooms, overlooking the Straits of Mackinac, each with its own sitting area, walk-in closet, and private bath. The astonishing views take your breath away! Wake up each morning with an expansive view of the vast blue and beyond. The primary master is located on the first floor with exceptional views of Lake Huron. The home features a front patio that one will never forget. Just steps from the lapping shores of the lake, where the views of the boats are the most amazing sights you will experience, and the energy of the water will flow throughout your soul. There is another patio for grilling off the kitchen along with the convenience of a butler's pantry. There are two fireplaces for the cool evenings that Northern Michigan summers can bring, The home was designed by Rich Bos from Royal Oak Mi. The exterior landscape is designed and maintained by landscape architect Jack Barnwell. The grounds of Boardwalk Cottage are some of the prettiest on the Island. This once in a lifetime opportunity is as special as they come. Please call for a personal tour.
