About Karen McKinnon
I spent a lot of my childhood on Lake Charlevoix; spending time at both my maternal grandparent's summer cottage and with my father's family-all on the south arm of the lake. It was my dream to come back to this lake where so many wonderful memories were created and have a place of my own. So I found some land in Boyne City where there is much to do year 'round and decided to put a vacation home here.
Karen McKinnon purchased this House in 2008
Why Karen McKinnon chose Boyne City
This land was chosen for the location; only one mile from town, a block and a half from one of several beaches in Boyne and a nearly private setting with seasonal lake views. There are cedar trees all around the property, the lot is wooded along Lake Street with wetlands in the back. It was important to me to keep the integrity of the watershed and in order to mitigate damage to the wetlands. The land is kept very natural and the setting is quiet and relaxing.
What makes this House unique
The home is still in the city limits but has a country-like setting. There are bikes for guest use. The ride into town is only one mile; a great distance for going to Kilwins for an ice-cream or just a nice ride around the area.
Max guests: 8
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Damage and incidentals

The house was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. We would definitely consider renting it again.
