Azim purchased this house in 2008

This lake house is a perfect place for relaxing, enjoying sunrise and sunset, and fishing.

Families with small children are welcome, and will have a wonderful time, relaxing, swimming, canoeing or fishing.

In the evenings, gathering around the fire and making s'mores and watching sunset will leave unforgettable memories.

You can bring your own boat, jet ski, canoe, kayak or pontoon, or rent ours (if available). Or if you wish, just relax, swim and fish.

An Escape From Reality

My Family and I stayed here for one month. It was perfect in every way. Every Day was different and unique. Between the Sunsets, Swimming, fishing,Camp fires,Wild Life and pontoon usage There was never a dull moment. I highly recommend this Lake house. Too many reasons to list. The owners of the property are polite, friendly and knowledgeable of the area surrounding the Lake House. They are your GO TO people. Always available and lots of recommendations on any question asked. It was an enjoyable experience that was treasured by all including the family's dog. The Owners have done a nice job on making the Lake House feel like you are at Home.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to know that our guest who spent a month at our lake house had a good time. We really enjoyed knowing her and her wonderful family. We got the opportunity to know more about them and were greatly impressed with their knowledge of the world, their calm manner, and their enthusiastic view of life. We look forward to the opportunity to see them again.

Relaxing retreat on quiet lake

  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We planned a nice guys weekend here and were pleasantly surprised by the home and the lake...the first picture with chairs looking onward at the lake is what we'll all remember! Very nice views and provided a relaxing atmosphere. The home was exactly what we desired, something quaint and not over the top...we came for the outdoors and the setup was great. The pontoon was fine, somewhat older but served its purpose. Overall, for the price, this was a great rental and we were very satisfied. The owners were very accommodating and if we needed guidance (restaurants) or help with anything, they were on top of it. We would definitely come again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much to take time to write such a positive review of our lake house. We really enjoyed visiting you and your friends and look forward to having you for your next reunion. We also wanted you to know that we sold the old pontoon and are in the process of buying a newer one one soon.

The Most Perfect Sunset in Michigan

If you are looking for a lakehouse to relax and unwind (with the perfect back yard), you've found the right house! The views are stunning and the yard is set up just right for fishing, playing on your personal and clean beach, or just plain relaxing. I cannot say enough about how caring and accomodating Mary and
Azim were during our stay. They really went out of their way (trust me!) and we greatly appreciate it!
We've rented many homes and you don't find that everywhere. The lake is great for swimming, fishing, tubing, kayaking and all other watersports. The house was quaint and was loaded with all the necessities you would have at your own home. We really enjoyed our vacation on Upper Crooked Lake and you will too!

Great Lake House and Hosts

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Our family of 5 (kids ages 6, 11,and 12) stayed at this wonderful house over Labor Day weekend. The house was exactly as pictured on the web site. The hosts, who live right next door were extremely accommodating and very friendly. Mary braided my daughters hair (which she absolutely loved) and helped her catch her very first fish and Azim took our son for a kayak ride Our kids loved spending time in the water, jumping off the peer and enjoyed all of the water toys that were there. The pontoon was enjoyed daily for fishing, tubing, and just for taking a ride around the lake. Everyone also enjoyed the kayak which holds two. There is also a large firepit in the back yard where we enjoyed smores in the evening. The hammock was also a huge hit with the entire family and was a relaxing place to watch the sun set. The chairs by the lake were a perfect place for coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine in the evenings. The house was well stocked with all of the essentials and the sleeping arrangements were good. There is a grocery store close by where you can also rent movies. Pizza and ice cream were also very near by. Thank you for making our stay so relaxing and comfortable. We would love to return for a longer visit next time.

Great house and property

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 27, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
The listing and photos are accurate; would recommend.
The property is outstanding for a family with small children. There is a swing set that can be seen from the kitchen and dining room so the kids have a place to play when not in the water or on the beach. The lawn is large, clean and attractive for additional play space. It is shaded by multiple trees on the west but not so many that they block out the sunset over the lake. The beach is one of the best on this lake. The sand is clean and deep and extends out in to the water. The lake bottom is sandy and shallow for quite a distance so the kids have a lot of play area in the water.
The pontoon boat is clean, with adequate space for the family, and a tank of gas that lasted the whole week for us. The availability of the tandem kayak was also great for touring the lake in the quiet mornings or evenings with either another adult or one of the kids. It accommodates 2 adults but is light weight enough to allow one adult to paddle.

The house is clean, the kitchen stocked and adequate and the sleeping arrangements good. The house has AC and we could not have been without it. The weather was very hot and dry when we were there and it was great to be able to have a respite from the heat at midday. There is no dishwasher and this allowed us to teach the kids the old fashioned way of cleaning dishes - they thought it was great fun to help.

The owners are friendly, accommodating, and helpful if there is a problem. They live next door and will give advice on nearby activities, grocery stores, etc. One of our kids left a toy at the house and they were kind enough to return it to us by mail. We have left things in other homes we have rented and did not even get an notice that we had left something.

All around, this is a great place with great amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing our lake-house for your vacation. We are so glad you and your lovely family had a wonderful visit.
