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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996

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.

My husband and I plus another couple stayed for 4 nights and had a great time! The size of the cabin was just right and everything you needed was right there. We met both sets of neighbors and they were both very nice. In fact, they invited us to a game of bocce ball just moments after we arrived! I really enjoyed how quiet the area was and I was able to sit by the water and read, very relaxing. We really like the Petoskey area as there is a lot to do, this will for sure be on our list for a place to stay in the future!

My wife, my in-laws, and I had a great stay and loved the house, location, and the weather! We were minutes away from Petoskey, which had a great offering of things to do, there was a grocery store nearby, and the owners could not have been more prompt, accommodating, or friendly. It was the first time up north for my wife and in-laws and it was a trip that they'll never forget

My husband and two children enjoyed our stay very much. It was our first renting experience and the owners were great to work with. The cottage was clean and cozy and the neighbors were very nice. Downtown Petosky was very close, and there were a variety of restaurants to choose from. The kids enjoyed Put-Put golf and playing in Lake Michigan. The pictures and description of the cottage were accurate. A very enjoyable experience. I would definately go back again.

Quiet Retreat!

Our week at Simple Serenity was one so well enjoyed! The cottage was cozy, clean and being on the
quiet side of the lake made it a quiet retreat. Our thirteen year old enjoyed kayaking and even paddled
her grandfather around in the canoe on a couple of fishing trips. We took many day trips and must
recommend the Polish restaurant on Lake Michigan. It was quite a drive but the location as well as the
food was wonderful! We climbed the dunes at the state park near by. Our search for Petoskey stones
along Lake Michigan proved successful and we now have many stones to remind us of our great
vacation! We enjoyed our week at Simple Serenity and thank our host and hostess for sharing their
little bit of heaven!

Just What We Were Looking For

Everything we needed to have a lovely week of vacation was available to us. My Husband and 12 year old daughter stayed at Simple Serenity for one week in August and were very content. The availablity of the canoe and kayak were a key factor in our our enjoyment. We paddled the lake once every day at least. The close proximity to Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Charlevoix made for severl nice trips to shop, eat, and sight see. The price on this rental was a great value. It is a small but cozy place and neat and clean! We were so pleased to find and choose this place!
