Charlevoix is a favorite destination for "Up North" vacations. Relax on one of the unspoiled beaches on Lake Charlevoix or Lake Michigan to hunt for Petoskey stones. Enjoy the crystal clear fresh waters aboard a charted sailboat or rent a boat, kayaks or paddleboards. Experience recreational opportunities of more than 20 trails and natures preserves. Evoke a sense of years past with the historic architecture of Charlevoix, the famed Earl Young Mushroom Houses and the majesty of Castle Farms. Step back in time by visiting the setting of Ernest Hemingway's Nick Adams stories and the former kingdom of Beaver Island now known for its unhurried pace and natural beauty. Downtown Charlevoix features boutique shopping, unique restaurants, and world class events set along Round Lake which connects to Lake Michigan below the historic drawbridge.
