About Bruce Janssen

Bruce Janssen purchased this House in 1986
Why Bruce Janssen chose Boyne City
In 1986, Bruce's parents purchased this lovely home as a summer home. Both parents have passed on and the home is now being used as a family retreat when it is not being rented and shared with others.
What makes this House unique
This is a lovely, solidly built home which was renovated in 2011. Ranch style with a hint of Mission styling, the home has a mix of hardwood, tiled and carpeted floors throughout. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining with its open floor plan and includes all cooking utensils, large refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. A large screen television in the spacious living room can be used to watch movies while lounging in the great recliner sectional sofa or you can watch your favorite cable and network shows via the DirectTV satellite. Downstairs is roomy enough for games or just hanging out. The house is quite cozy with water baseboard heat throughout and air conditioned for those occasional too warm summer days. You can start your day with a cup of coffee watching the sun come up in the east over the valley or end the day with a drink while sitting on the deck. Any way you choose, this house has a great ambience and you won't regret spending your vacation here.

The perfect family getaway
Clean comfortable accommodations for large families and pets. Spectacular view of property from House with beautiful walking trails through the fields. Close proximity to Boyne City. Very nice owners!
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Jodie and I enjoyed meeting your family,
and the dog agility demo.
Beautiful home, great getaway!
This home is beautiful and has plenty of room for several people to stay. The property gives amazing views and is such a nice place to stay! It was perfect to have the public boat launch for Lake Charlevoix only a few minutes away so that we could enjoy our boat while staying nearby. Bruce was so easy to work with throughout the booking process and we enjoyed meeting him and chatting upon our arrival! We hope to come back for another stay in the future!
I’m glad your group enjoyed the house and the location. It seam like everyone who stays here feels the same.
Thanks for leaving the house so nice an clean, much appreciated.
I look forward to a return visit some day
Great home and beautiful land!
Clean, spacious, fully equipped house, great location, beautiful property! Deer, a coyote & some very cool birds. Loved the groomed trails! Bruce was awesome too!
From the time we arrived at the Janssen home to the time we left was a 100% positive result!!
We cannot express enough how satisfied we were staying at this retreat! The house is very clean and neat and the beds are so very comfortable! There was not a single thing we needed while there. Bruce greeted us upon arrival and made us feel so comfortable and took the time to make sure we had everything we needed! The property and surrounding area is so very peaceful and the trails were wonderful for walking our lab during the morning and evening hours. The birds outside the large window at the bird feeders were entertaining and enjoyable to watch! We definitely would come back to stay! Thank you Bruce for opening up your home for others to enjoy and for your hospitality!!
Debra & Bruce
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. You had great weather.
Thanks for leaving the house spotless. Would love to have you return someday
What a restful sanctuary!
We just completed a Memorial weekend stay at this beautiful place. If you want a peaceful and very comfortable place to stay, this is it! There are big windows to look outside at the birds, turkeys, and even some deer that stopped by in the evening. In addition, there are acres of property to walk with paths cut in the grass for you to walk. Thank you Bruce for supplying us with some good information and for your hospitality! The DJK Family
Spacious with outstanding view
Thanks Bruce we enjoyed our stay. We like the location and your rental home.
Located only 1.8 miles from downtown Boyne City this home puts you in close proximity to all the wonderful things about Northwest Michigan. Three major lakes:Lake Charlevoix, Walloon Lake and Lake Michigan are minutes away. Ranked as a top destination small town by the National and Michigan Main Street programs, Boyne City is always hopping with a variety of fun activities for the whole family from our famous Friday night 'Stroll the Streets' during the summer months, to awesome dining in any one of our fine restaurants. Additionally, this home is close to the Leelanau wine country, Petoskey's many boutique shops and the infamous M119 drive up the coast of Northwest Michigan. Enjoy all of these great activities then come home to this quiet, secluded setting to enjoy a lovely evening walk on the 70 acres with mowed trials while watching deer and other wildlife you won't find in a city.
For winter enjoyment we have groomed XC-Skiing and snowshoeing trails
out the back door, along with sledding and tobogganing
