Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our week on this private lake was just wonderful. We were looking for a week of complete downtime, but this location is great for day trips to Macinaw, Traverse City, Petosky, etc. The cottage is very clean and roomy. We only had the four of us, but could easily have accomodated 10. The owner was prompt in answering any questions and following up on our stay. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage - would even consider renting again.

Amazing! Simply put.

  • 5 of 5

What was initially supposed to be a couples weekend turned into a guys weekend, and the house was perfect! The lake is amazing, and we had a blast going out on the boats and checking out the scenery, then coming back to one of the several patios that was perfect for our many games of cornhole. After dark, the fire pit gave us an excuse to look at the amazing amount of stars (and eat some s'mores). The house itself is huge and allows all the privacy you'll need, but still has all the amenities to cook a great dinner, watch TV, and play euchre (or whatever games you may like). Thanks Cheryl! We've decided to make this an annual thing and couldn't imagine a better place to do it!

LAKE ARROWHEAD COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation ever. We had the whole family together for a week in this awesome cottage, our three children, their spouses and three small granddaughters . There was plenty of space, the home was very clean, water pressure was great and the owners were good to work with. The two levels worked out for us, we kept the grand kids in the lower level so they could sleep without the adult noise. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of towels, fans for the hot days, a washer and dryer and even toys for the kids. Plenty of table space for games and dinners. We were lucky enough to have great weather everyday. We rented a pontoon boat, used the kayaks and the paddle boat and fished off the dock. We golfed most mornings and the courses are pretty close (stay away from Wilderness Valley and The Black Forest, terrible conditions). The pool is awesome, just the right temperature and within walking distance. We went to the pool at least once a day. I think our favorite spot was the long wrap around porch, we sat there most of the time just enjoying the beautiful view. The stars at night were amazing. Lake Arrowhead is a hidden gem. We have enjoyed going to a different location every year, but everyone voted to come back again next year. I highly recommended this wonderful, relaxing cottage.

Owner's Response: Stars at night are AWESOME! Pool is beautiful and refreshing. The community is perfect for families. Safe and close knit. Glad to hear you golfed everyday. Lucky for all there are about many courses to visit in and around Gaylord! The Ridge and the Natural are two of our favorites. Family gatherings are the best!

Lake Arrowhead

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for large families. Plenty of room just review the bed layout on the description. Both showers are great - we joked about this all weekend.... Lots of water and pressure....the place is clean with new carpet (or very clean carpet) any issue that came up it was resolved. Lake Arrowhead is a small little hidden jewel. the view is very nice. I would recommend a family trying this place.

We spent a long time deciding on this place, but are efforts were rewarded! This place has it all--family friendly, on the lake, clean as a whistle, fishing off the dock, a paddleboat. rowboat, two kayaks and a firepit. Very spacious and welcoming. What's not to love?
