The Charlevoix Country Inn is a splendid place for gathering of large groups, family reunions and business retreats. Along the shoreline endless walks provide the solitude and conversation that build lasting relationships while enjoying each other’s company. Guests at the Inn enjoy countless variations of stone formations while strolling along the beach as the magnificent blue waters of Lake Michigan splash the shoreline. The Inn is only a five-minute walk from the center of Charlevoix and its many unique stores, art galleries and Lake Charlevoix.

Situated on a bluff overlooking the eastern shoreline of Lake Michigan, with views of the lake and spectacular sunsets, the Inn served as one of the cottages that housed the overflow of the nearby Beach Hotel around 1899, and later evolved into a bed and breakfast. Today, the facility is being used as a vacation rental property by the week with seasonal rentals from Memorial Day to Mid-October.

In 1721 a French Jesuit missionary explorer and writer by the name of Pierre Francois-Xavier de Charlevoix passed through this community that eventually became his namesake. His writings are some of the earliest written accounts of North America. Known as “Charlevoix the Beautiful,” the population is about 3,000, estimated to grow to about 30,000 during the summer season.



Art fairs, the Brown Trout festival, craft shows, free concerts in downtown Charlevoix, the Polish-American festival and the Venetian Festival are some of the events that unfold during the summer season.  World-class shopping and restaurants. Canoe trips, Lake Michigan Charter fishing trips. Near Mackinac Island. Great biking and hiking trails along Lake Michigan.
