The home was stocked with everything we could ask for, as we were in town to celebrate a nephew's wedding. Originally picked for its location to the Castle Farms (the wedding venue), 4 miles away, Applecore Cottage is within walking distance (1 mile) to downtown Charlevoix's stores, restaurants, and pubs. Also a plus, the property is one lot over from public beach access, which although public was never crowded with more than our group to enjoy the lake in all its beauty. Stepping out our door and having a gorgeous sunset over Lake Michigan each night was an unexpected pleasure. Applecore Cottage, named for the apple trees on the property brought the 6:00 p.m. deer out of the woods in time for dinner and lent to the beautiful surroundings. Having never been to Charlevoix for an extended stay, it was another added bonus that Applecore Cottage is a "Mushroom House" and it was a fun adventure with family learning the history and searching out other properties in town.
