Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

This cottage has been completely renovated (finished in 2014) and is just like new! The lakefront cottage is located on 265 acre Crooked Lake in Clare County. It has everything Michigan has to offer within a reasonable distance for an enjoyable family vacation or romantic weekend. A few of the great activities available are water sports, fishing, hunting, ATV’s, Fall hiking, color tours, skiing @ Crystal or Caberfae, snowmobiling (the Pere Marquette snowmobile trail is nearby). Golf courses and Soaring Eagle Casino within a short distance.

The lakefront swimming area has a sandy bottom with a gradual drop off. Fishing includes Bluegills, Perch, Rockbass, Crappie, and Largemouth Bass. There is a free public boat launch approximately one mile away to launch your boat, pontoon or jetski.

For your Mid-Michigan shopping experience and other activities you only need to go to Clare, Houghton Lake, Cadillac or Mount Pleasant.

Want to Hunt Northern Michigan whitetail deer, turkey, and other small game? The Au Sable State Forest and Pere Marquette State Forest only minutes away. Ice fishing produces nice pike as well as other fish.

Six guest limit. Renters must be a minimum 25 years of age, unless accompanied by an adult guardian. This cabin is pet and smoke free. Check-in time 3:00 pm and check-out time is 12:00 noon.

Communication with Tim throughout was superb....prompt answers to our many questions! The rental price was very fair! The first word out of our mouths when we walked through the door was literally WOW! The cottage has been completely updated & is gorgeous! Tim told us we just needed to bring our clothes & food...& he wasn't kidding!! You name it, it was there! Fully stocked bathroom & then some! Kitchen was well equipped! Towels, linens, paper products, cleaning supplies, etc, etc, etc!! Grill, patio furniture, fire pit with firewood, a dock that we tied our boat up to all weekend with no gosh even the fully fenced lawn was amazing! Kind & quiet neighbors :) We took our teenage daughters & they had a great time.....plenty of space for them, tons of fun tubing on the all sports lake, & they survived mostly due to the wifi!! Lol!! I wouldn't hesitate to book with Tim again & certainly hope to do so!! THANK YOU!!

Girl's getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cottage. The setting is perfect, quiet neighborhood, beautiful view, and the cottage was really clean. We had five ladies that went for a relaxing getaway and we enjoyed it thoroughly. It was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The owners have done a great job making it cozy and they have provided most everything you need. We will definitely rent it again if we get the chance. Lots of places to go walking and not far from shopping (Clare & Mt. Pleasant) if you feel the need : ) Very enjoyable stay!!

The owners were easy to work with and very polite. Very enjoyable stay!!

Great cottage on Crooked Lake

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage on a beautiful little lake. Everything was clean and new, and it had most of the things you'd need. (Dishes, cookware, utensils, towels, washcloths, etc. They even had a pile of firewood which we used several times to enjoy evening fires on the lake.

It was perfect for the 4 of us. It has a master bedroom with queen bed, and 2 small bedrooms with bunks in 1, daybed in the other. The view of the lake is beautiful from the living room and from the deck. The Wifi was also nice to have.

Perfect Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for a 4-day long weekend and absolutely fell in love with the relaxing lake life! The cozy cottage had just enough room for our family of 5--2 adults and children ages 6, 4 and 1 year. Everything in the cottage was updated and well stocked with paper products, cleaning supplies, even bug spray and band aids! The sandy bottom and shallow lakefront provided hours of entertainment for the kids! We fished right off the dock, cooked all our meals in the well stocked kitchen, made a bonfire every night and also enjoyed a few of the DVDs provided. Any food or other items you may have forgotten are available at the general store or the family dollar, just a few minutes away. We will definitely refer this property to friends and family and also plan to return ourselves!

A Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family (parents and two adult children) spent a completely satisfying and relaxing week at this cottage on Crooked Lake. The weather during our particular week was fantastic so we were able to enjoy being on the lake on inflatables and to swim everyday. The water was great and the lake seems clean. When we arrived on a Sunday there was a fair amount of boat activity but during the week the water was very quiet and we could hear a loon and appreciate other lake wildlife. We sat around a fire in the fire ring almost every night. The mosquitoes joined in unfortunately, but as the evening cooled they became manageable guests. The cottage is lovely, very comfortable in every way. We had our bikes and took the opportunity to explore many side roads and were thrilled when we found ice cream close by. We definitely recommend a stay on Crooked Lake!

So cozy and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

When we first walked through the door the house smelled really fresh and clean it was open and airy and everything was clean and in order. The view from the house onto the lake was extraordinary and we spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the view. The house was fully stocked with everything you needed and tons of unexpected items. The little town was so cute and the restaurants and stores were perfect and close to the property. Tim was so nice and was readily available for any questions that I had it was very nice that he provided firewood and I want to thank him for that. I would definitely rent this house again!
