We originally purchased the property as an investment for our children's college fund but loved it so much that we decided we'd retire here someday.
We chose this location for several reasons. The other side of the lake has homes directly on route 31 which has very high traffic, noise and is not as safe for children. We are in an area of the lake that is somewhat isolated by Oden Island and not in the main boat traffic path. There are 700 acres of state land across the street from us which is great for hiking and snowshoeing. Crooked Lake is the headwaters of the magnificent inland waterway. We're 15 mins. from all of the action including shopping, casino, Little Traverse Bay, beautiful lakefront towns of: Petoskey, Harbor Spring, Bayview, Bay Harbor, plus 15 mins. from Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands.
we own the woods across the street which connects to 700 acres of state land across the street
