We've stayed at this property for the last six years and each time had a fabulous experience with both the larger log home and the smaller cabin that is also located on the property. The Log home is well maintained, clean, has a fabulous area to cook in that overlooks the grate room and dining room with a beautiful view of Walloon Lake.
The listing is not accurate in terms of amenities, as there are MANY that are not listed. From Brose surround sound, to two first floor master suites with their own private bathroom, a gorgeous state of the art hot tub (We were there after the struck by lightning incident and the brand new hot tub cycles through pretty lights which the teens in our party loved), a large 1,000+ square feet loft that has two sets of bunk beds, a cozy viewing area for TV that the kids can relax and enjoy, a game area, mini nook near a well lit window for the readers to enjoy, another cozy area that has a big screen tv- apart from the kids loft, but close enough to hear if there are any "issues" in the other room, and two more bed rooms upstairs.
Since we've been coming here for 6 years we've gotten to know the Browne family very well and been very pleased with the friendly customer service they've provided. Barb and Booth are retired and spend part of the summer at Walloon Lake, so they're always up on the latest restaurants and can make some good recommendations. One of our favorite places to go to is Jespersons in down-town Petoskey. Great, amazing coconut cream pie - we've been going there for years and usually make Jesperson's one of our first stops. Good burgers and the coconut cream pie is amazing!
A previous review was upset they could not use the washer and dryer- while we agree this would be great, we also know and understand up front that it is not available.
Our family and my brother and sister and their kids have all been coming up to this area for years. We're very glad to have found this beach house and plan on continuing to come back as long as the Browne's have it available for rent.
