Overview

Kalkaska Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Nestled in the woods about half way between Grayling and Traverse City, our clean, cozy little lake cottage is an incredible combination of cottage warmth and modern convenience. Well appointed with knotty pine throughout and decorated in a '50's cabin' motif, complete with antique maple furniture. The living room has wonderful views of the lake and is complete with a CD player and large T.V. The bathroom has been totally renovated with ceramic tile and a stand-up shower. The kitchen comes complete with all appliances, cookware and utensils. Two bedrooms have newer double beds, the third has newer twin beds. High quality bed linen is provided, please bring your own towels, washcloths, etc. The large lot is ideal for outdoor activity. The shallow sandy beach is perfect for children and the deck at the waters edge makes an ideal spot for sunbathing. Beach furniture, and fire wood are provided along with a swing for enjoying those famous Northern Michigan sunsets! The surrounding area is ideal for bike riding and hiking. ORV, snowmobile trails, and thousands of acres of State land are closeby! The Manistee River is only 15 minutes away and offer some of the areas best canoeing and fly fishing. We rent year round and are within manageable driving distance to Northern Michigans best ski resorts including Shanty Creek, Nubs Nob and The Boynes. *Please note: Beginning Sept. 2011 the cabin will rent from Friday to Friday.

Clean & Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week on the lake. The cottage was very clean and quaint. There was everything in the cottage we needed. We will definity come back. The beds were very comfortable and the lake was very quiet and peaceful. The cottage is not far from Traverse City, so there was many things to do.

Thanks,

Gwen & Chris Pinckney, MI

Great lakefront cabin

  • 5 of 5

On our first visit to this property in 2011, we noticed right away how clean and well-maintained the cabin and grounds were. We have enjoyed staying here every summer since and feel at home from the moment we arrive. Our grandsons (now ages 5 and 7) thoroughly enjoy swimming and playing in the lake. We love relaxing on the deck and enjoying cool breezes and beautiful sunsets. The owner takes pride in this lake property making it a great place to stay. We are already planning our visit next summer.

Relaxing Week At The Lake!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was just as pictured - clean, cozy and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed our week of relaxation. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and dishes, there were more movies than you could watch in a month and a number of games. Being right on the lake was wonderful and on our first morning we were blessed with a beautiful double rainbow promising a georgous day! The owners were great to deal with and you can tell they take care of their property!

Great family vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!! Relaxing and very cozy!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was very nice and clean! Has been kept in excellent condition! We had such a great time with our 3 sons and I truly feel this was the best vacation our family has ever had. We spent so much quality time with our 3 sons. So peachful, quiet, and relaxing. The water was just beautiful and we watched the sun set every day. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. Not to far away from anything you may want to do up north. We were able to take our small dog with us which was great. We grilled out just about every night and truly enjoyed the outdoors. Very private for which we truly enjoyed as well.

Owner's Response: Angie, Thanks so much for your review! I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed yourself at the cabin last month. Grilling and watching sunsets from the deck is what my family does most every night as well. Thanks again for your kind words and for your business. I hope to hear from you and your family again next season.

Fun week - great property!

  • 5 of 5

A nice, relaxing place - super clean, great fire pit with wood provided, all exactly as pictured! The lake is beautiful, and it was great to just sit and enjoy the view. Glad to have the air conditioning for a day or two of our trip, as it was hot. No need to bring outdoor chairs, as there were probably 10 to choose from! There's even an outdoor dining table and the lawn is big enough for kids to run around and have fun. Good times, and bonus points that I got my deposit check back in the mail the day after I returned home. Pizza at the Cove store on lake is yummy. Good location to drive to Traverse City or Mackinac Island for day trips. :)

Owner's Response: Traci, Thanks very much for submitting your review. It's always nice to hear that our guests have as much fun up there as we do! Our kids have always loved to play in the yard, and we chose this location partly because of the short travel time to Traverse City. Thank you again for your business and I hope to hear from you again next year.

Great Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had an absolutely wonderful time here. My kids played in the water every day from morning till night. The lake is clean, warm and shallow with a sandy bottom -- perfect for younger children to explore. We had a campfire almost every night, roasted marshmallows and told ghost stories. The TV was hardly ever turned on!

The cabin is small and a tight fit (especially for very tall people like us) but everything is extremely clean, well-maintained and very comfortable; most of your time during summer will be spent outside enjoying the view from the dock or swing or having fun in the water. It's one of the nicer cabins we've seen. Sunsets were spectacular and the best part of the day. So relaxing that I didn't think about work the entire time I was up there.

Overall, a great place to stay and the owners were great to work with and very accommodating. Highly recommended!!!

FYI, at the corner of M-72 and 571 (about 4 miles from the cabin) is a fantastic place for baked goods -- McDougal's(?) Sweet Spot I believe it was called. Out of this world, homemade fresh fruit pies, turnovers, cinnamon rolls and streudel. Worth the trip back up there just for the food.
