We fell in love with Walloon when we would come up to visit family. We live in Chicago, and have 2 children and a yellow lab and wanted a retreat that felt just as comfortable as our home, yet completely different and very 'cottage-y'. We also wanted to create a haven for our family that would enabled us to really spend quality time outside the chaos of our regular life, make lasting memories as well as enjoy all seasons of Michigan.

Christine Anderson purchased this cottage in 2013

The gorgeous turquoise water, and the warmth of an inland lake sold us on Walloon. We choose this property because it is nestled on a tiny point with recessed neighbors, making it feel secluded and private—yet still ideally located to rt 131 (great restaurants, shopping, skiing and golf...because who doesn't want to be 10 minutes away from a great restaurant?) The house has beautiful sunset views, warm clear water & hard packed sand/gradual drop off and a flat yard perfect for the kids. We found the cottage a perfect set up for our family as well as the ability to have a guest family -- 2 bedrooms with queen beds and a bunk room for the kids. Room for everyone in the open concept great room with stunning lake views and areas like the kids tv room as well as an office. It is fully renovated and decorated with a subtle up-north decor that feels welcoming the moment you step in the door and is comfortable all year long.

Our favorite things so far: Sitting on the dock at sunset, having a cocktail. Lounging in the hot tub on a chilly night. Kayaking very early when it's very quiet. Getting fresh veggies and fruit from CoveYou. Enjoying all the great restaurants from Charlevoix to Harbor springs. Taking the boat to Barrelback for dinner. Catching fish. Tubing. Walks through the forest preserves. Camp fires and smores. Looking at the stars with the telescope. Zipling. Skiing at Boyne. Snowshoeing on the lake.

A FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY - WE WILL BE BACK!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and our 3 boys stayed here for one week. This home has everything we were looking for and we are already planning our next trip. The interior is very comforable, spottlessly clean, tastefully decorated and spacious. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised the home looked even better in person than from the photos on the website. There are lots of personal touches and plenty of room for everyone to enjoy being together or have quiet time alone. The lot is perfectly located and offers just the right amount of privacy for enjoying the patio, jacuzzi, and yard which lead right to the waters edge. What a privelege to hear waves when you wake up and then be able to take a dip in clear waters at your doorstep. A perfect mix for adults and children alike. I highly recommend this home and was thrilled with our stay.
