About Lake Charlevoix
Lake Charlevoix is a true boater's paradise, connecting directly to Lake Michigan for Great Lakes access.
As the third largest lake in Michigan, Lake Charlevoix provides a unique "big water" lifestyle that no other lake in the region can provide. Lake Charlevoix connects directly to Lake Michigan through Round Lake (which most locals consider an extension of Lake Charlevoix itself). Boating enthusiasts in Chicago and other cities along the Great Lakes can pull out of port and boat straight to their own dock on Lake Charlevoix. There are three communities that make up Lake Charlevoix's shoreline - Boyne City, Charlevoix, and East Jordan. Each has its own unique character and merit, and will appeal to a different pool of prospective buyers.
