The Perfect Escape

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cottage. Sleeps 9, 3 bedrooms, 1.75 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

340 Dam Rd Boyne City, MI 49712 United States

Newly remodeled it has a gorgeous open concept kitchen perfect for cooking on the beautiful summer nights with the sliding glass door open to smell the fresh air, or snuggle up with a blanket next to the wood stove during the winter months. Also on the main floor you will find the first bedroom and den, living room, two bathrooms and a washer and dryer. Upstairs there is a loft where you will locate the other two bedrooms. Just outside and down the driveway is the Boyne River, perfect for fishing! You will find this home perfectly located with less than a 5 minute drive to Boyne Mountain Resort and just miles from Charlevoix or Petoskey. You and your family are bound to make great memories and get the true "Up North" experience. This cottage is also perfectly located for soccer tournaments, lacrosse, etc.

Please note that all pets must be house and crate trained.

While we do our best to have the driveway plowed, salted and sanded during the winter months, a 4WD/AWD vehicle and/or winter tires may be necessary for full use of the driveway. Please contact us with any questions regarding this.

    Beth H from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this vacation rental

    We had a delightful and cozy Thanksgiving at The Perfect Escape. Enjoyed a daily walk just down the road and along a pristine river. The location was a great home base to explore Boyne City, Charlevoix, Petosky, and Harbor Springs. Renee from Northern Michigan Escapes welcomed us soon after we arrived and had been very helpful leading up to our stay with changing some reservation details. The rental company also has a very helpful app that alerted us to local weather and events. A delightful location and all reasonable amenities included. (Loved having the wood burning stove on some blustery, snowy days!) We are already planning a trip back.

    a guest from Wyandotte, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Our family absolutely loved staying here for a wedding in Petoskey. The six of us had more than enough room and our dogs loved it too. It made traveling far from home so much more comfortable than staying at a hotel, it felt like home! Every morning the view off the deck didn’t disappoint and at night the fire pit was very entertaining under the stars. The location was perfect and convenient with only a short drive to Petoskey, Lake Michigan, and downtown Boyne. The decor was very cool and artfully eclectic. Northern Michigan Escapes was great to work with, I had no worries once I booked this cottage and they give you a lot of information regarding your stay as it approaches. This cottage was clean, cute, convenient, cozy and somewhere we would definitely stay again, tell our friends and family about too!

    • Manager Responded on 9/17/2018

      Hello Megan - Your review made me smile knowing that you had such a great time at this property and that you were able to enjoy having your dogs there as well.

    a guest from Caledonia, MI recommends this vacation rental

    A ladies weekend away was much needed.
    Upon our arrival , we were warmly met by Renee , as she showed us around the lovely , cozy , cottage in the woods . The beds were comfortable, the cottage was cleaned, and the back deck was where we spent mornings with coffee and nights with cocktails ! We had a bonfire , and cooked over the fire.
    The location was so close to many other beach towns, Petoskey, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs . We did day trips to these places and rock hunted , finding many
    Petoskey stones and Charlevoix Stones. The water on the big lakes is Caribbean blue! We saw deer most everyday as well.
    The one thing that we didn’t have was a DVD player to watch movies on when it rained . Also, there weren’t many hangers in the closets to hang our clothes on.

    • Manager Responded on 9/17/2018

      Hello Pamela - I always smile when I hear that a group of friends were able to get together for a ladies weekend and enjoy time with each other. I am happy to hear that this property worked out so well and that you found the location and proximity beneficial. I am so sorry to hear that there weren't enough hangers and we certainly could have run some right over to you had we known! Please do not ever hesitate to contact us, should we have the opportunity to help you in the future. Sincerely, Rachel Walsh and NME Staff

    a guest from Northville, MI recommends this vacation rental

    If you ever wanted to own a cabin in the woods, this is the place to live out your dream. Less than 10 minutes to Boyne Mountain or the cute downtown, this cabin is down a long driveway with the house tucked into the woods. If you want to immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of nature, this is the best place to do it. The house is a little rough around the edge (but it's a cabin, remember?) and is oozing with charm. We stayed during arctic cold temperatures and the house was warm, with plentiful warm water and cozy beds. There is plentiful space for sleeping and spreading out if you had a large family. When an issue arose, the customer service was fantastic and the issue was resolved within an hour. I would definitely recommend this property to others looking for an authentic up-north experience.

      Hello LeAnne - I am so happy to hear that you had such an amazing time at this property and thank you so much for your wonderful review. It sounds like this was the "Perfect Escape" for you!

    Kelsey W from Berrin Springs, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had to leave another cabin rental after the first night because it was so dirty (not from Northern Michigan Rentals) and we were SO excited that this one was available! It was super clean, well equipped, adorably decorated, and very cozy with the wood burning stove in the living room! It has a large deck that was great for looking at the fall color and watching the deer in the morning. Super peaceful and private property and would highly recommend this property!! Northern Michigan Rentals was also super helpful and great at making sure we had everything we needed. We would love to come back in the winter months too since it is super close to Boyne Mtn. Overall can't say enough good things about our stay!

    • Manager Responded on 10/22/2017

    Three generations of my family enjoyed a wonderful week at Cozy Skier Cottage. We enjoyed the beautiful woods surrounding the cabin, watched a doe with her fawn, turkeys and many other birds. The peace and quiet helped everyone relax and just enjoy some great family time. The Cottage was wonderful everyone love the decor it truly felt like a home away from home. Would recommend to anyone looking to relax and unwind for a few days.
    The staff meet us recommending events in area that we might like. We had
    number to call if we needed anything, very helpful.

    We stayed at the cottage for a weekend for a baseball tournament in Petoskey. It worked out perfectly with not a bad drive to field and so much more things to do than staying in a hotel. It rained for two days but we played board games and watched the Olympics and had a great time being stuck inside (which would have been unbearable in a hotel!) The kitchen was perfect to make a few meals and it even cleared up enough to have a campfire and roast some marshmallows. Lexi was great to work with and we would recommend this to anyone!

    Nathaniel W from Mishawaka, IN recommends this vacation rental

    The Cabin was secluded with just a neighbor barely visible up the hill from the corner of the deck in July. The setting in the woods was very nice and we enjoyed the wild life- Deer with Fawns, Turkey and family of coons moving through the ferns behind the house. We enjoyed walking the beautiful trails near the cabin, both by the river and just around the corner from the house!

    The House: We were surprised to find the house had air conditioning, which even when we inquired, they told us it did not. This was very handy. The only critiques would be a little issue at start with water, but once the breaker was turned on, this was fixed! We wish they would have done something with the deck furniture cushions to repel the water but instead we had to dry the soaked cushions out. We thought we saw a mouse inside the house twice and there was some evidence deep in the pan cupboard.

    Overall, we enjoyed our stay very much!

      Hello Nathaniel - Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at this property.
