Monthly rental minimum. Immaculate and decorator perfect home on the North Arm of Walloon. Sunny and spacious gathering areas indoors and out, including lakefront patio, firepit, and sandbox area for kids. Large dock to tie up a pontoon boat or ski boat and sunning area on the dock. Directly across from the Walloon Lake Country Club on the best part of the lake for waterskiing.
Our family of five (children ages 14, 13, and 10) had such a wonderful time here over the July 4th holiday, we were sad to leave. What a blessing to have found this gem. There is so much to tell, especially since we are the first renters of this lovely home. First, the photos do not do it justice. The house itself is both beautiful and comfortable, with many spots for gathering with family as well as spending moments alone with a good book. Details and special touches include a large and fully equipped kitchen (loved the spice drawer) plus outdoor grill, baby monitors and shelves of children's books for those with little ones, huge selection of games and movies, very comfortable beds, and a main floor bedroom and bath for those who do not climb stairs. The home sits on a large lot (1/2 acre?) with stunning views of the lake from many rooms. We loved having dinner on the deck, roasting marshmallows in the fire pit, and relaxing in the many chaises and chairs available on the lawn. There is also a dock and boat hoist (we rented a speed boat from Walloon Central Power Sports & Marine), a large shallow area, a swim platform, and while we were there we were lucky enough to have use of a tube and paddle boat. We also enjoyed the basketball hoop as well as the ping pong table. In other words, we had a lot of good old fashioned family fun and created many special memories. In terms of the rental process, Michael and Ellen were a joy to work with--extremely gracious, thoughtful, responsive, and accommodating. Our only wish is that we could rewind and do it all again. We hope someday to return.
