We have lived in Kalkaska for the past 24 years.I (Teresa) was even born in the Kalkaska hospital.Therefore,I am a true native! My husband Rick however, is a' transplant' from Plymouth Mi. He moved here to marry me! After this many years here, He is now considered a' local-yokoo' as well. We have two children. Our son is 21, and our daughter is 12 yrs. old. We have lived out here at Crawford Lake for 22 years now.We love it here and this is why we purchased our lake front cottage in June of last year! The cottage is just across the lake from our primary home. This makes it perfect for our new venture of renting our cottage as a vacation get away /retreat. Again, we love Crawford Lake so much, as well as the surrounding area , so we thought why not share it with others! Sooo, thats what we did!! We are loveing meeting new people and makeing new friends. Our guests have been wonderful and we are grateful to have had them stay with us. So far, they love it here as much as we do!
What attracted us to the area is the fact that you have access to so many fun and exciting out door activities. There is skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing,dirt-biking, four-wheeling, hiking, boating, swiming, water-skiing,fishing,golf;and the list goes on! It is also very peaceful and beautiful . The sceinery and wildlife are breathtakeing,and all you have to do is look out the window! Lastly, we love this location because it is only 20 minutes from Traverse City, Torch Lake and the casinos. Perfect!!
AHH The View . Sitting on the deck or dock having a drink and watching the sun set over the lake and trees will leave you speechless. The fall colors over the lake reminds us of being in the smokey mountains mostly due to the fact that this lake is not jamm packed with homes one after the other. The south end of the lake has no homes, just all cedar trees. You may even catch site of the bald eagles that nest on the south end of the lake!
The Sleeping Bear Dunes and Mackinac Island are a great day trip from our cottage; as is Leelenau County for thier wine tourse. Also, the snowmobile and RV enthusiests can leave right from our cottage in order to hook up with the main rideing trails. Lastly, Turtle Creek Casino's and Resort is only 20 minutes away.
