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.
