Stretching all the way from Charlevoix to Boyne City to East Jordan, you'll find the third-largest lake in the state of Michigan. Lake Charlevoix is more than 17,000 acres and boasts 56 miles of beautiful shoreline that reside in parts of six townships.
The Ironton Ferry runs from late spring to early fall across the south arm of Lake Charlevoix. It takes about ten minutes to cross and includes a neat piece of history with the ride. In 1936, the ferry made Ripley's Believe It or Not for its captain, Sam Alexander. The defining factoid about Alexander: He traveled 15,000 miles while never going more than 1,000 feet from his residence.
If you want charm, how does a castle sound? Castle Farms overlooks Lake Charlevoix and was constructed in 1918 by the then vice president of Sears, Roebuck, and Company. Housing everything from livestock to rock concerts, the castle now operates as a special events venue for premiere weddings, festivals, and more. It also boasts a dragon as well as a model railroad.
There’s so much to do and see around a lake this big, and because Round Lake connects Lake Michigan to Lake Charlevoix, you can pilot your own boat or take a chartered cruise on either. Far enough from the bustle to relax, you’ll still find yourself close enough to the comforts and activity you crave. There’s something for everyone, no matter which season and which speed you live.
