About Christine Anderson

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

Why Christine Anderson chose Walloon Lake

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely wonderful time! We have 3 children, a 3yr old and a set of 15 mo old twins. The place was very, very clean, inside and out! The beds were comfortable. We were able to use the hot tub while the kids took a nap, or after they went to bed. This was mommy and daddy's relaxation time, and something we really wanted, since anything water related was just not in the cards for us with kids so small. There were lots of games and a nice selection of movies and books. Towels and linens provided. Clothes washer and dryer was very convenient by the end of our stay. A couple of tips if you are staying with young ones....we thought we were going to put the Pak n Plays in the "kids" area. But that area is not really a closed off room, but rather, connected to the entrance. So we squeezed 2 Pak n plays into the bedroom with the bunk beds. Thankfully they fit, and all was good. Also, the back yard that goes to the water, is rocky shoreline. Little ones would not be able to freely run around, as they might fall in the water. We remedied this by creating a make shift "fence" of deck chairs, lined up on the perimeter of the deck. This kept our little ones safely on the deck. There are only showers, not bath tubs. So we had to bath the kids in the shower. The single person kayaks were very convenient and fun to have. We were very close to Petosky, grocery stores, dining, bike riding, parks, etc. great location! With just a few minor adjustments for the kids, we were able to have a really great time, would definetly come back, and would recomend it to anyone!!

A wonderful retreat- We will be back!

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with this Walloon Lake Cottage! The description on VRBO was accurate in every detail. We enjoyed the very clean, comfortable, cozy decor, morning coffee watching the mist receed on the chairs on the dock, cool nights, sparkling hot tub, kayaking along the shores of the crystal clear lake, s'mores by the nightly bonfire and exploring the surrounding areas. Everything that you might need is in the cottage, the kitchen is well equipped, spices, condiments, etc. Towels, soap, shampoos, etc.
We had an initial problem connecting to the internet, but one text to the owner brought an immediate response, answer, and a follow-up call to make sure all was working well.
We rented a boat at the local marina and had no problem securing it to the dock at the property.

Nice, Relaxing Destination

  • 5 of 5
Our family group of three adults and three kids (ages 8,9 and 11) had a very enjoyable and relaxing time at the Anderson cottage. There was plenty of room for our group and perhaps 2 or so more. The home was clean and well-equipped, and the Anderson's have done a nice job of giving it all the creature comforts while maintaining an up-north feeling and atmosphere. The cottage is situated close to the water, so the lake view is right in front of you when in the family room or sitting on the deck, and there is privacy from the neighbors' homes that are set further back on each side. We spent the week boating, tubing, fishing and relaxing. A few short trips to pick cherries and visit Petoskey and Charlevoix were also fun. Very good family destination.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic home on beautiful Walloon Lake. The home surpassed our expectations in all aspects. The location on the lake was perfect. The home is clean and beautiful. The hot tub was very well cared for. Only a few miles south of Petoskey allowed for excellent dining! We hope to stay again next summer. This ranked as one of our best family vacations ever. Thank you so much.
