Located just 6 miles from Boyne City, 7 miles from Boyne Mountain Ski Resort and 9 miles from Petoskey (with nearby Boyne Highlands) this lake front cottage rents all year long for spring flowers, summer sun, fall color tour and golf, and winter snow skiing, snowboarding, iceskating and snowshoeing.
This cottage is located on the Gold Coast of Walloon Lake's South Shore! All year long enjoy beautiful sunsets from the 20'x20' lake front deck. A large, flat, grassy yard with just steps to the sandy beach and sand bottom lake. Wonderful for children and adults alike! 'Bulman' dock with spacious sun deck and one boat lift (upon request). Includes sheltered back deck for windless sunning and a beautiful flower garden for blooms all summer long!
We are conventiently located less than a mile from 'the foot' (the Village of Walloon) which features a large family friendly park and public beach, General Store, Post Office, restaurant/bar, bakery, and shopping. Lake access to launch boats, Bear River canoe trips, rafting, and hiking along Bear River also available at 'the foot.'

My sister and I own the cottage together. It has been in our family for four generations.
Jennifer purchased this cottage in 1935
As kids, we spent summers on Walloon- there is no place like it!
Summer is great for boating, swimming, kayaking, sunning, shopping, and enjoying the lake with friends. The fall color change is a must see and the local golf courses can't be beat! In the winter, the skiing, shopping, and outdoor activities are endless! A winter wonderland!
In June 2014 our entire family (6 adults, one nanny and 5 grandkids under 5) enjoyed a wonderful here and highly recommend it for other families. The location is superb, just a mile to the "foot" and 15 minutes to Petosky. The kids were able to walk right into the shallow water! The owners have thought of everything so don't bring much more than yourself !! The new sliding doors to the lawn and lakefront create a spectacular vista for sunsets/firepit evenings. The huge master suite with luxury bath is truly first class. There is a large porch across the front (great for dining) and a patio in the back of the home provides additional living space. Lot's of space for a large group. The office which is part of the master suite is a huge plus if you need to "work" while there.
We're back for 2015 !!
We take our 3 grown children, spouses, grandchilden and mother on vacation every year rather than buy Christmas and birthday gifts. We found the perfect family home, The shallow sandy beach is suitable for small children (ours are 2/ 1/2 and 4). The master bedroom suite was perfect for our son and daughter in law with a newborn. The sitting area was prefect for middle of night feedings. You have everything you could possibley need (except griddle) in the kitchen, a magnificant gas grill, and beautifull sunsets. We took a jet ski and pontoon and had ample space to dock. Our youngest son is a fisherman and he brought his bass boat. If you aren't familiar with the lake, fishing can be a little tricky but friendly natives are glad to share the best fishing spots. The house was clean and we especially appreciated the mid week cleaning. We enjoyed the late evening long pontoon rides seeing several different versions of the same sunset. Needless to say we would highly recommend the house (just not the week we want it !) . If the owners would like to use us as a reference we would be glad to share.
