SECLUDED GUEST COTTAGE ON WEST ARM OF WALLOON LAKE

Walloon Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage sleeps 10-4 Bedrooms, 2 baths + queen sleeper sofa

Our Guest Cottage is located on the west arm of Walloon Lake situated between Petoskey and Boyne City, approximately 45 miles from the Mackinac Bridge. Nestled at the end of Zenith Heights Road on three acres of land amidst scenic mature forests, our property offers a picturesque, relaxing setting. No roads intersect the area between the cottage and the lakefront.

Walloon Lake, one of Michigan’s most beautiful and clean inland lakes, with its distinctive turquoise color, is over ten miles long and has Brown & Lake Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass, and Perch. The lake bottom is free of weeds and is sandy with a gradual slope from the end of the dock outward. Our cottages share 200’ of shore front; two tandem kayaks, two swimming rafts; and a large, new Shore Station dock, offering plenty of room for you to enjoy the beautiful sunrises & your own boat. At the water’s edge a lounge deck with table and chairs, two camp fire pits, and a small sandy beach area for children awaits you, your family & friends.

The Guest Cottage is set atop a gentle, small hill overlooking the trees & lake below. This ranch style home with walk out lower lever can accommodate up to 10 people. A spacious deck complete with table & chairs, along with gas & charcoal grills make for a perfect area to enjoy a dinner on a summer evening! Located next to the cottage is a play area containing a picnic table, swing set, and a Tiny Tikes merry-go-round.

The upper level of the Guest Cottage has three bedrooms (with ceiling fans), bath with shower, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and family room with a wood-burning stove. Two of the bedrooms have queen-sized beds and the third bedroom contains a trundle bed. The family room has a TV with a DVD, two leather couches and is connected to the dining area and kitchen.

The lower level is accessed from the upstairs by a spiral staircase or from the outside. A large, open family room contains a queen-sized sleeper sofa, TV with a DVD, along with a sitting area to enjoy our many board games. This family room adjoins to the bedroom which has a queen bed and full bath, as well as to the laundry room (full sized washer and dryer & wash tub).

The cottage is non-smoking, with adjustable electric heat available in every room. Blankets, pillows, linens, and bath towels are furnished – please bring your own beach towels. No smoking, pets, firearms, fireworks, or additional guests living in campers are allowed to ensure a safe environment for all. A local caretaker is on call and mid-week cleaning is also available for an additional cost.

If you are interested in booking the cottage, please feel free to contact us at the numbers below. In order to secure your date, a signed lease & deposit is required for rental. We welcome clean and respectful guests, and look forward to making your next vacation a Walloon one!

My husband & I live in Colorado & the kids are grown, so we don't get to enjoy the cottage as often as we would like. So, we thought we would share this magical place with others allowing them to make Walloon a tradition & create fond memories that will last a lifetime.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1967

My family lived in Ann Arbor, but my sister, mom & I would always spend our summers at my grandmother's cottage in Minnesota. My dad decided to buy the property on Walloon Lake so we could spend more time together. After an exhaustive search of other lakes, we found that none could hold a candle to beautiful Walloon. We were all enchanted by the beautiful Caribbean turquoise blue color of the lake and the big, beautiful Hemlocks, Beech, Maple & Birch trees on the property. The 200' of shoreline & 3 acres gave us lots of room to play, explore & relax. The property initially had 2 small Sears & Roebuck cabins on it-that we later joined & modified to create the guest cottage after we finished building the family cottage.

Some of our favorite things to do at the cottage are: watching the sunrise over the quiet, glassy lake; water skiing; swimming; kayaking; tubing; fishing; sailing; exploring the woods & looking for morels; laying on my back looking up through the tree limbs to the tree tops-marveling at their size; curling up with a good book in front of the fire; picking cherries at a nearby orchard; taking a nap on the porch; grilling an evening meal & enjoying it on the patio overlooking the lake; looking for satellites, falling stars & the northern lights on the dock; and our favorite of course...good conversation & drinks around the campfire with friends & family while enjoying s'mores :)

Fabulous Vacation

Hands down, best owner I have ever worked with. Our three families rented both homes for July 4th week. Such an incredible lake and property. The dock system was the perfect system for all of our family's vast collection of water toys. Never have we had such a great way to anchor our boat and jet skis without worry. The landscaping and walkways were perfectly placed to maximize the natural sloping of these properties. The homes were well appointed with modern appliances and plumbing. Wonderful water pressure and comfortable beds. We loved the great touches - Like multiple hooks for towels in bathrooms, places to store water gear. Great fire pit at the shoreline. I just can't say enough wonderful things about this rental and it's owner. She goes above and beyond and she truly loves this property and it shows.

Great trip to Walloon

Thanks for a great week at Walloon. The cottage was a very nice lake cottage and had all the amenities we had hoped for including a great location on the lake. We enjoyed morning coffee and evening camp fires on the shore every day. The cottage certainly had all the supplies we needed for a wonderful visit...Boyne City was a short drive for groceries and other supplies. All in all, we had a great week and would definitely rent this cottage again. My wife is already talking about 2 weeks next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We had an enjoyable stay at the Guest Cottage, where it feels like you are staying in a tree fort. The cottage is a tight fit but the large deck provided ample space for our family to enjoy the environment. Aside from the cottage, the dock and fire pit areas on the shore were amazing. We spent most of our time on the dock, in the water and on the boats we borrowed from friends. Walloon Lake is incredible and this cottage and its location were fantastic. The cottage was neat and clean and furnished with the essentials. The owners were accommodating and quick to respond with any questions or issues. The property was well cared for and included well maintained wooden steps, seating areas and kayaks for our use. It wasn't a problem sharing the grounds with another family although next year we may rent both cottages since it was such a great experience this year.

Summer fun on Walloon

My family and I stayed here for a week this past July. What a beautiful piece of property! We felt like we were staying in a tree house! The beautiful trees with the peek of the blue-green lake below, was breathtaking. The guest cottage was clean and comfortable. It definitely has a 'cottage' feel, but not in a bad way, by any means. We loved being so close to Petosky for any rainy days too. We will surely stay again!

Great place to have fun and relax

Last summer we stayed at the property for the second time. It was the first time in the four bedroom cottage. We had an excellent stay. It is clean and comfortable. The lake front is perfect with a sandy bottom and a beautiful dock. The owners added kayaks last year which was a great addition. They are easy to deal with and very considerate. We went with our three children and our parents and everyone completely enoyed the stay in large part because of the beautiful setting. The wooden steps to the cottage are almost brand new and make the back and forth to the lake easy. There is also a great place to sit down by the lake.

Owner's Response: Each Cottage has it's own personality and I'm glad you've had the chance to enjoy both the Guest and Family Cottages now! Having them clean & comfortable is what I insist upon and I always love having respectful guests. The tandem kayaks are a lot of fun to go explore the lake or just paddle out to the rafts right in front of the Cottages. The shorefront landscaping turned out well & allows more places relax near the lake...whether it's having a picnic; lounging under the big, beautiful Hemlocks or having an evening campfire eating s'mores and savoring time spent with family & friends. I look forward to having you back again!
