Take advantage of this rare opportunity to experience the calm, comforting beauty that is Lake Michigan Living, 'Grand Olde Cottage' Style. This home is only rented 2 weeks per year.

Enjoy stunning sunsets, gently lapping waves and the freshest breezes to be found in the midwest.

About the neighbourhood
At the turn of the 20th Century, many wealthy Americans moved their families north to their Charlevoix 'Cottages' to escape the oppressive heat. During that time, the Chicago Club, Belvedere Club and Michigan avenue streets bustled with uniformed maids and nannies as well as chauffeurs in full livery. Our 'cottage' home was designed by Will Levy in 1911 and built shortly after by David May, a Commodity Dealer and owner of the famed May Department Stores. The St. Louis Geological Society was kind enough to donate the original architectural drawings to the Charlevoix Historical Society, copies of which can be seen on display in our home.
