Dear Valued Summertime Rentals Customers,
Welcome Summer 2021! We hope everyone is doing well and had as good of a year as 2020 could have been. We are very excited for the season and look forward to having our customers back for another beautiful Lake Charlevoix summer.
Many great changes are happening for our business including a move into our own permanent South Arm Marina location on Lake Charlevoix's South Arm at 2474 S M66, East Jordan! We are on the same road but about 6.5 miles (8 min) south from our previous location in Ironton or about 1.5 miles north of 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. There are several plans in the works so please be patient as we make the transition and bring improvements to the property. We have lots of new boats and equipment this year! 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 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. 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 last summer and were able to do so safely, with all the precautions, despite COVID-19. Our business is naturally 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,
Kim, Aaron, & the Summertime Rentals Staff
