this b&b has enthusiastic newish owners.it seems like they have not had much experience with other b&bs. if they are going to compete successfully in the Up North michigan market, they need to spend some time attending to details. there were no comfortable chairs for reading, except on the porch, but no reading lights on the porch, which was noisy with traffic and needed sweeping. the furniture was generally mismatched and rather shabby and the decor beyond haphazard. yes, it is indeed convenient to downtown charlevoix and to the lake. yes, the breakfast was large if nothing special and the dog was friendly. i do not care for the sort of b&b that puts a teddy bear and a book of poetry in every room, but i do expect some basic comforts that were lacking here.

This is an awesome bed and breakfast. The owners are very nice and hospitable people, it is evident they love what they do. They make every effort to make your stay perfect....and we definitely will return if ever in the area. The rooms are clean and comfy. The location is half a mile from downtown, perfect for us as we love to walk. However, the best part of our stay was breakfast! Michelle and Armand prepare a wonderful meal that is different every morning. From smoothies to french toast (My personal favorite) the choices were many and all if it was so good. You will not find that in any hotel!! There was plenty to eat and the conversation was always good. It had a family feeling as all the guests enjoyed breakfast together. Great, Great place to stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in the front of the house and it is on a busy street. The noise lulled me to sleep, but if that kind of thing bothers you, I recommend a room in the back. The air conditioner also quieted the street noise.

Our first time ever at a bed & breakfast & we passed by it & turned around to go "check it out" but we booked it within 10 min. & so happy we did! This will be our place of stay every visit to Charlevoix. Comfy & clean. fabulous breakfast & an easy walk downtown. Michelle & Armand are the best! Thank you & we will see you again soon!

My husband and I spent 1 night in mid June and could not have been happier. The new owners are wonderfully friendly and breakfast was outstanding. At breakfast we were surrounded a German family who had just picked up their high school son from a school year in GreenBay Wi and were traveling on east, a European couple in town to participate in a triathlon, and another family coming from Interlochen on their way to Beaver Island. and the hosts kept us all fed and happy and were very helpful with ideas about the area. We will go back.

We stayed here on a recent trip up north What a cute place! Upon pulling into the driveway, we were immediately greeted by the owners Michelle and Armand who helped us get settled and carried our bags up to our room. We stayed in the lighthouse room, small yet functional, with a private bathroom. No issues with the room. Breakfast was delicious and had a definite communal feel. We loved this!

The location was close to downtown, probably a 5 minute walk, and an easy jumping point to other darling cities in northern Michigan.

Would highly recommend! I couldn't believe how reasonably priced it was! $68/night for our room! I dare you to find a better deal in Charlevoix =)

We wouldn't hesitate coming back.

Room Tip: There is some traffic noise, so if this bothers you (personally sometimes the car noise lulls me to sleep), I'd suggest getting a room in the back of the house
