Awesome cottage, Awesome Location...Fun for every season!
I have been fortunate enough to stay at this property for each of the four seasons throughout the last 12 years. The house is large, beautiful, and has all the amenities for a perfect vacation (just as the photos and previous reviews depict.) The house sits nestled in a very private, wooded subdivision, but still only minutes away from Petoskey State Park and ten minutes from downtown Petoskey.
Regardless of the season, there are a variety of activities to keep the whole family occupied. The summer offers prime time fun at Petoskey State Park's beautiful beach. Also, the proximity to nearby Little Traverse Bay and Round Lake, offers all of the water sports. Salmon and Smallmouth are abundant in the Bay, and Round Lake offers daily/weekly boat and pontoon rentals.
Fall is prime time for the breathtaking colors that line the nearby hills and mountains! A definite must see for those whom have never traveled to northern Michigan this time of year.
Winter also offers a host of activities! The cottage is literally 5 minutes away from two of Michigan's premier ski areas (Nub's Nob and Boyne Highlands) and a half hour from Boyne Mountain. You can hit 3 different Mountains in 3 days if your feeling up to it! Additionally, there are groomed cross country and snowmobiling areas all within minutes of the house.
For the homebodies, a romantic weekend getaway, or after skiing relaxation, the cottage boasts a full jacuzzi on the back deck. The basement also has all kind of fun stuff for the kids, including a pool table (which can convert to a ping pong table), Foosball, and air hockey!
The downtown area of historic Petoskey boast all kinds of interesting stores, ice cream/fudge shops, tourist stores, and a even a gym. The city of Petoskey also has a variety of stores and restaurants to suit any taste and for any situation that arises, including: Meijer's, Walmart, Glen's, Starbucks, Dunhams; Home Depot, Marshal's, MC Sports, Buffalo Wild Wings, etc.
Regardless of when you plan on going there, this cottage will not disappoint! Book your trip early because dates fill up quickly throughout the year!
