Sunlight glances off the dancing waves of Lake Charlevoix, which lies surrounded by several very unique little communities: Boyne City, East Jordan and Charlevoix share the shoreline with Ironton and Horton Bay. Each community has its own rich heritage – and its share of homes, lots, condos and acreage that beckon buyers to Northern Michigan. Under the warm spell of summer, or when the countryside transforms into a winter playscape, this is a land of breath-taking beauty. Let me show you the richness of Charlevoix County real estate. Let me show you home.
Walloon Lake is Lake Charlevoix’s pretty little sister. This enclosed lake is a bit quieter than Lake Charlevoix but just as majestic in her own right. Walloon has 37 miles of mostly sandy shoreline and over 4000 acres. The lake was formed by glaciers, is spring fed, and is a true gem of the Up-North landscape.
The tightly knit community of Walloon Lake waterfront owners adds to the allure of ownership. Once there you will see why. The numerous protected bays provide great places to water ski or just hang out, the fishing is exceptional, and the water quality is excellent. Is Walloon Lake right for you?
Lake Charlevoix is a gem and was voted the second best lake in the US in a 2012 USA Today poll. With 60 miles of shoreline, more than 17,000 acres and depths over 120 feet, she’s a big-time lake, set apart from the rest with easy, direct boat access to Lake Michigan and the world.
Having several towns on Lake Michigan within 30 miles of Charlevoix can take “going out for lunch” to a whole new level if the weather cooperates. If not, take advantage of the three on the protected shores of Lake Charlevoix itself. Whatever your pleasure may be, toes in the sand, fishing, sailing, boating, or just time with family and friends, Lake Charlevoix caters to all of them. Oh, and water so clear that you can see the bottom in over 20 feet. You’ll love Lake Charlevoix!!
Ahh, Northwest Michigan, with warm days and cool lake breezes, there is simply no place better to be in the summertime! Crystal clear water everywhere, with breathtaking vistas and expansive beaches, this area is a dream location for water lovers and boaters. (PS. No, you can’t see Wisconsin, and no, there are no sharks or salt, but you can boat to anywhere in the world.)
