A perfect private getaway, sleeps 5-6 people, great for a family or 2 couples with kids. Our home has panoramic views from a large deck overlooking Lake Charlevoix and a charming covered porch with lots of comfortable seating. The large rooftop deck is just steps out the front door, with plenty of seating, and a tiki bar and palm tree! The view from the house, porch, and deck are unbelievable! Relax on your private sandy beach and have a bonfire in the fire pit. You can tie your boat to the mooring ball at the end of the dock or bring or rent kayaks to explore the lake. It is a five minute drive or bike ride to downtown Boyne City, a premier Main Street Community, where you can enjoy the many small town festivities, concerts, farmers market, restaurants, or Stroll the Streets on Friday nights. Drive 6 miles to Boyne Mountain resort and spa, with world class golf, water park, and skiing, or just 45 minutes to catch the ferry to Mackinaw Island for the day, or check out the historic and quaint Ironton Ferry, just 7 miles down the lake and a shortcut to the beautiful town of Charlevoix! This family cottage is complete with all the comforts and conveniences you will need, a well-stocked kitchen with everything required for cooking and dining as well as a gas grill and patio tables for barbecuing. There are 2 large bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has a queen bed and a twin bed with a private half bath. There is a full bath between the 2 bedrooms with a large walk-in shower and lots of vanity space and storage. The living room has plenty of seating with amazing views of the lake, the dining table seats 6, and there is a sun/family room with an extra table and seating area, and a queen size sofa bed. The kitchen, dining room and sun room also have unbelievable views of Lake Charlevoix. There is a washer and drier and we provide plenty of linens and towels, and paper products to start you out.

About Barbara Ellwanger
We live and work in Boyne City year round, and moved here several years ago because we love the area & enjoy boating, golfing, and skiing. We actually met while skiing at Boyne, and were married at the top of Aspen Mountain 10 years ago. We only live 4 miles away, on the other side of the lake, so we are always available for any questions or information about the area. We love Boyne City and Lake Charlevoix and there is no place else on earth we would choose to live!
Barbara Ellwanger purchased this House in 2012
Why Barbara Ellwanger chose Boyne City
We purchased this house in Sept of 2012. Known as the 'pink house', it is a landmark for local boaters and fishermen, so we have decided to keep it's unique color. It was a well-loved and maintained home so we have only had minimal sprucing up, painting and decorating to do. As we are both do-it-yourselves, this has been a fun project that we both enjoy. We recently worked on some fun additions to the large deck, including a tiki bar and a palm tree! We would like this to be the kind of place we would pick ourselves for a vacation away from home.

Great place to stay!!!
The property was clean, comfortable furniture, beds & plenty of room. The views of the lake were amazing & Barb was gracious & very accommodating. We will definitely stay at this property again.
Great getaway destination.
Clean, comfortable house on Lake Charlevoix with all necessary amenities, a gorgeous view and just minutes from Boyne City.
Lovely Lake Charlevoix vacation
We have rented this property twice, and will be returning again next summer. Our 7 week stay each year speaks well of the property. It is a comfortable homey house overlooking Lake Charlevoix. Owners live close and respond to any issues immediately! Well furnished kitchen. Good wifi and tv service. Spacious home with two nice size bedrooms. Boyne City is a great small town with lots of dining options, farmers market, and friendly folks. Biking is safe on the roads/trails. Close to many lovely wineries, and easy to drive to the wine country, Mackinac Island, Petosky, and Charlevoix. Watch the boats on the lake from the front porch and tiki bar, or from your easy chair! Deer peek in the windows each morning! Small sandy beach just steps away. Highly recommend.
Beautiful stay and so relaxing!
This was a wonderful stay for our family! Boyne City is so close and a great town and Charlevoix is on the other side of the lake and beautiful too! Barbara and George were so accommodating and nice! I would highly recommend staying here if you want to relax and enjoy the lake! We had a blast just tying floats to the dock and floating around right outside!
We had a great stay. The Ellwanger's are very accommodating. House is well stocked and very clean.
Located on beautiful lake charlevoix, voted 2nd best lake in the US by USA today. Just minutes from boyne city's many activities, restaurants and shops, and 15 minutes to charlevoix.
