A New Home in our 2022 Rental Program!

The Black Duck Cottage is truly a boater’s paradise but has something for everyone all year long. Featuring a beautiful lakefront cottage and a guest house at water’s edge, enjoy life on the South Arm of Lake Charlevoix with 137 ‘ of sandy water frontage and a permanent deepwater dock capable of hosting multiple vessels up to 55ft with sufficient water and power sources, or multiple smaller boats and toys.

The main house features an updated kitchen and 4 full bathrooms, 2 gas fireplaces, wood and stone floors. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything you need. The vaulted great room centers around a beautiful gas fireplace. The adjacent deck is equipped for outdoor seating and dining, plus a gas grill and cooler to keep your drinks handy. The first floor queen bedroom and ensuite bath is easily accessible just off the great room and deck. A king ensuite bedroom awaits upstairs with another gas fireplace and private deck, perfect for your morning coffee as the sun rises over the lake. A separate bunk room is ready for the kids with 2 queens, 3 twins and an ensuite bath.

The guest house is truly magical with its French doors that open on to the lake. Enjoy the king bedroom and sitting area with gas fireplace, heated stone floors for chilly mornings and updated bathroom suite. The guest house is not available during the winter months

The heated recreation room/garage will keep the crowd busy with ping pong, darts, board games, cards and a 60” smart TV. Stay connected while you’re here with high speed internet and wifi. Smart TVs are in each bedroom except the bunk room, plus the rec. room and great room.

But who wants to stay inside when just off the garage is a regulation sized pickle-ball court! Yes, the paddles, ball, and net are ready for you to join in the fastest growing sport in the country! Or enjoy the beautiful water on Lake Charlevoix on the two kayaks and two stand up paddle boards provided, along with life jackets. Don’t forget the hot tub to warm up after a chilly swim!

End your evenings at the Black Duck around the beach fire pit, listening to the natural artesian spring flowing down the property.

Please note, the Guest Home and Hot Tub are not available during the Winter Season.
