Clean and cozy!! We were very pleased with the accommodations for our long weekend. The condo was impeccably clean. Some parts are slightly dated, but the parts that truly matter, are not! The view of lake charlevoix is beautiful! I would definitely stay here again!!! Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Thursday, November 12, 2020 HI Amy- we appreciate the great review and so glad you enjoyed the condo. We agree the view is amazing! We hope to see you back on your next trip to Northern Michigan. Terri and the entire staff at Northern Michigan Escapes

Decent place to hang your hat The area is amazing, with terrific shops, hiking trails, and (in our case) gorgeous fall colors. This property has a great view of the lake and beautiful sunrises and is a decently maintained suite.

First time to Michigan Great rental. Quiet with a nice view. Interior was a bit dated but enjoyed stay! Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Thursday, October 24, 2019 Kelly, Thanks for your great review for this cozy little Condo. The views are second to none and hope you had nice enough weather to sit out on the deck and watch the boats come into the marina. The owners are in the process of updating the condo and just recently completed the bathroom and will be doing other rooms as they have time.

Cozy and Well Kept Very clean, quiet. Nice view of the marina from the balcony. Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Monday, December 2, 2019 Thanks for the great review Kevin. The marina view at Foster Boat Works is second to none. Perfect balcony to enjoy coffee and pastries in the morning or a drink and snacks in the evenings and enjoy the cool lake breezes.

Paper Thin Walls This past weekend, after we waited an hour to get into the unit because Northern Michigan Escapes forgot to leave us a key (because they think its 1993) we entered the unit to hear breathing on the other side of the wall, or floor or ceiling. We could literally determine that a neighbor was using a can-opener, lifting weights, and talking with a normal voice. not to mention loud music and yelling at times. Northern MI escapes cannot help you with this as they will remind you. They just manage properties that you likely dont want to stay in. Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Friday, October 16, 2020 Evan, Just as we apologized profusely for at the time, and in our subsequent conversations, we again sincerely apologize that the key was not left in the access box. We 100% made a human error and regret the inconvenience it caused you terribly. It is clear though, that this frustration was allowed to impact many aspects of your stay as reviewed, that as referenced above are in no way characteristic of other reviews for this home or these properties. We wish you the best of luck on future vacations and again apologize for our mistake with your key - but are happy that we were able to resolve that matter within an hour. -The Northern Michigan Escapes Team Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Friday, October 16, 2020 HI Evan, Our apologies for the delay in your access to your rental. We all make mistakes and our staff overlooked leaving the key for you and got to you as quickly as possible. Unfortunately every unit in this complex is privately owned and keyless entries are up to the discretion of each owner and out of our control. As for the noise, Lauren contacted the complex manager several times and they are the ones that refused to enforce any noise ordinance. Short of you contacting the police our hands were tied since the noise was not coming from a condo we manage. I can promise you that when the situation is reversed, the complex manager doesn't hesitate to contact us to call and remind our guests to quiet down. I personally spoke to the president of the association and have been assured this will not happen again. Despite your issues, hopefully you were able to enjoy all that Northern Michigan had to offer.

Relaxing Retreat We had a wonderful week at Foster Boat Works Condo. The view over the marina and the Charlevoix Lake were gorgeous with paradise like sunrise and moonrise. The condo was ideal for two people; we appreciate being able to use the laundry room and the pool from the marina. Just one problem; no wifi available in the condo, so we used phone hotspots. Response from Northern Michigan Escapes, LLC; Friday, July 27, 2018 Roselyne, I am so happy that you were able to enjoy your week at FBW. It is the perfect place to sit on the balcony and enjoy your morning coffee as well as a nice glass of wine to watch the sun and moon rise as you mentioned.

Lake Charlevoix 2019 A two week stay in a clean unit, a great location and accommodating weather! The entire facility is well maintained. The only issue (which did not affect us but could be a problem for others) was the elevator which was nonoperational the last 3 days of our stay. Highly recommend for a quiet, peaceful vacation!
