Dear Valued Summertime Rentals Customers,
We hope everyone is doing well and a good 2021. We are very excited for the upcoming season and look forward to having our customers back for another beautiful Lake Charlevoix summer!
2021 brought about many great changes for our business as we moved into our own permanent South Arm Marina location on Lake Charlevoix's South Arm at 2474 S M66, East Jordan! The new location allows us room to grow, while providing better access to two nearby beaches and the calmer waters of the South Arm. We have several plans and projects in the works so please be patient as we continually make improvement to the new property.
Our fleet continues to improve with the vast majority of our fleet being new 2021 and 2022 models! These models all have Garmin GPS moving maps and digital displays. You may notice that our hours have changed and we added a “Flex 6 hour” and a “Morning 3 hour” rental for added daily rental flexibility.
We are taking reservations beginning January 3rd and highly recommend reserving in advance for best availability. We require a 30% Non-Refundable reservation deposit at time of booking and then within 7 days of the rental you would be 100% committed to the full rental cost (see our Rental Policies for additional information). Please note that if you feel there is a chance that you will not be able to commit for whatever reason (including potential issues with COVID-19), we kindly ask that you do not reserve or postpone making a reservation until any uncertainty has passed. Our rental season is very short and is the reason for our cancellation policy.
The safety of our staff and customers are a high priority, however, we feel we have reached a point that if there is a concern about mask usage and social distancing we feel you should let us know in advance of your concerns. We are happy to accommodate accordingly but the standard of service is now a no mask, business as usual atmosphere. We were very fortunate to have had high demand the past two summers and were able to do so safely, with all the precautions, despite COVID-19. Our business is naturally outside and socially distanced but customers are always welcome to wear a mask. Please call with any additional questions, concerns, or to make a reservation. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone!
All the best,
Aaron, Kim & the Marina Staff
