About Carol

My husband and I have been married thirty years, we have three boys and love our home away from home here in Boyne Country!

Carol purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Carol chose Boyne City

We rented in this area and on Deer Lake for many years before purchasing this property. We first fell in love with the cabin that was renovated by a wood artisan, lending to his love of wood and log and artistic use of the materials. We loved the area, its proximity to year round entertainment and activities, we loved the property on a quiet, all sports lake. This is our little piece of paradise. And we want to share it with others who appreciate the northern michigan country and all it has to offer throughout the 4 seasons of the year.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location. It doesn't get any better than this!!

In Boyne City every Friday is an event called Stroll the Streets with live music from every block, craft vendors and fun as the sun sinks into Lake Charlevoix.

Farmers Market moves outdoors to Veterans Park, Wednesday & Saturday, May thru October, 8 a.m. to noon

Absolutely perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this property and we had the most perfect getaway this year. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather! This cabin and property are fantastic, with the right amount of seclusion and access to everything you need. The owners of the property had just put in a new air conditioner and it worked perfectly to keep the family cool during the hot afternoons.

Deer lake is just perfect. The temperature is always nice for swimming, and being an all-sports lake makes it so much fun for the kids. A close drive to Lake Charlevoix, it was nice to go see the sun set there in the evening.

We will be going to this property for many years to come! We plan to make it a lasting memory in our kids lives.

Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific place to stay! 2 adults and 4 children and we had everything we needed. Kitchen and bathroom well stocked and very clean. The owners went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. This cabin is close to many different cities and Boyne was a fun town to explore. The kids enjoyed swimming, fishing and the fire pit. This was our home away from home and we would love to come back.

Great Any Time of Year!

  • 5 of 5

While we've stayed here several times before during the winter months to ski at Boyne, this was our first time staying in the summer. I never realized it before, but the cabin is right on Deer Lake with a darling path with bridge that leads down to their private dock. We loved going for a rowboat ride every morning. When we wanted a sandy beach, we went across the lake to Boyne's beach. We took day trips to Petosky and Harbor Springs, both within a quick drive. I really love this cabin's quaintness and location. We are definitely coming back!

The best cabin in the woods....

  • 5 of 5

At Camp Vieder we were welcomed with a beautiful basket of snacks and drink. Such a thoughtful touch! I found this cabin stocked full of treats from loads of towels to K-cups and even a pitcher of cold water in the frig. There were also ample supplies of toiletries for our use as well as enough towels for our stay. That was on the inside....on the outside the cabin is on a beautiful property with a stunning lake view. Certainly a slice of heaven for all who choose to stay.
