Norwood Township Reviews

1 review
Norwood is both a great place to grow up and a great place to grow old. The neighborhood is so quaint and is even safer than the neighboring town of Charlevoix (if that is even possible). In Norwood, a typical summer day is relaxing at the clear water beach all day, and enjoying the sun as it goes down on the little township school house and your neighbors. A typical winter day is watching as deer walk around in your backyard and drinking hot chocolate while watching the ice shift on the pristine Lake Michigan. Growing up here has made me become connected with the world around me. Normally, even on the clearest nights, seeing the stars is not typically feasible, but in Norwood, they are almost always visible. The overall community in Norwood is good for those looking to get involved in activities such as Halloween hayrides, and an opening day hunters brunch. You will find living in Norwood to be like living a permanent vacation.
