All About Charming $5.9M Cedar-Clad ‘Boardwalk Cottage’ on Mackinac Island
This place is perhaps one of the most iconic homes on the island. The stunning and infamous 'Boardwalk Cottage' sold this past November for $5.75 million, and it's truly everything you'd expect from a Mackinac Island home.
The unique cedar-clad home is a standout for its design and beauty, and it's no wonder considering who owns the home. The home was built in the 1980s by the McIntire family, the previous owners of The Hotel Iroquois on the island for over 65 years. Much like the hotel that they brought to a legendary stage, the 4200 square foot home is considered one the island's finest.
Inside the home, you will find three bedrooms, each with its own sitting area, walk-in closet, and private bath, each overlooking the Straits of Mackinac. The first-floor master suite will have you waking up with spectacular views of Lake Huron.
Because summers in Michigan are meant to be spent outdoors, there are two incredible patio areas. One patio sits just steps from the lake and offers views you can only dream about. Not to be outdone, the other patio area is made for outdoor cooking with easy access to the kitchen area with a butler's pantry.
The home sets itself apart with its cedar-clad exterior and landscaped grounds that match that of some of the finest hotels around, not to mention the fact it sits within walking distance from town on Main Street lines with whimsical homes that the island is known for.
