Great place - lots to do - very kid friendly

The cottage is a nicely kept getaway with a great location. The place is stocked with all of you could ask for like towels, kitchen amenities, bedding, toilet paper, trash bags, soap, etc... Grocery and other conveniences are a short drive away.
For those inclined to stay in, there is a gas grill, lovely views, a hot tub, wifi, cable TV and a fire pit. If you're looking to go out to restaurants, Boyne City and Boyne Resort are five minutes away...Petoskey is less than 20 minutes away. The golf down the road at Boyne is great. The fishing straight out in front of the house is excellent (just take the paddleboat to the dropoff).
Boyne City has a wonderful farmers market on Wednesday and Saturday. Friday evening, B.C. has "Stroll the Streets", which is a great time to walk around, listen to live music and grab an ice cream cone. The putt-putt course is second to none.
Here's the deal - even if you are pickiest nit picker - it is hard to find fault with this cabin or the vacation it'll serve as a home base for. The swimming out front is not great for older kids is the only possible caveat (but it is great for young kids because it is shallow with a sandy bottom for the first 50 feet from shore).
N.B. For those with younger kids, the B.C. Pizza in Boyne City has a great play area inside and some pretty decent pizza to boot. And, on the one day it rained, we went to Avalanche Bay. My kids are still talking about it.
