Exceeds expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely 3 bedroom cottage and were overjoyed with the accommodations. The cottage was the perfect size for our family of four. Just enough space to be together for meals and family chats along with privacy when desired. We loved the porch overlooking the waters of Walloon with our morning coffee and wine in the evenings to watch the sunset. Our college aged daughters enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boards provided by the owners. We had fun catching fish right off the dock. We love the peaceful setting of Walloon and hope to rent this cottage again.

Beautiful lakeside cottage with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this beautiful cottage on Walloon Lake in September 2015. The cottage was so lovely and clean with a beachy feel to it and the furnishings were very comfortable. The three bedrooms were luxurious and cozy with gorgeous lake views and the updated private bathrooms with the double sinks and bathtubs were perfect for the six of us!

The outdoor space was just as beautiful as the inside with a lovely porch and cozy adirondack chairs and a picnic table overlooking the lake where we enjoyed a few dinners while gazing at the beautiful sunsets. The owner, George, was friendly and accommodating and great to work with. We will definitely rent from him again as soon as we can!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect and had everything we needed for a wonderful week on Waloon Lake. The cottage was beautifully designed for 1 or 2 families to live comfortably with private bathrooms and great views of the lake. We loved staying there and look forward to more visits.

Charming Walloon Escape

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect - from the overall decor to the appliances in the kitchen and even the chairs on the dock - making the stay just wonderful. It was easy to ease right into vacation mode. Every bedroom overlooks the lake and with two porches and a balcony everyone can find their place to escape or spend time together. The ride in was so picturesque, the rolling hills into Petoskey - awe-inspiring! Our family enjoyed every minute at this beautiful cottage on Walloon Lake!

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year we spent at this cottage as a family. The cottage is clean and very classy. We really enjoyed our morning coffee on the deck and the sunsets were beautiful. The kids loved the boat and the cottage had plenty of room for the five of us.

Absolutely Perfect Cottage and Location on a Beautiful Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a weeks stay at Walloon Lake with our 10, 8 and 6 year old and could not have been more pleased with the cottage and location. The cottage is located on the perfect spot on the lake to enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the well positioned decks, back porch or the dock while dangling your feet in the clear water. The cottage is very comfortable, clean, updated and well thought out for vacationers to enjoy. The owner was very attentive to ensuring we had everything we needed to enjoy the week. Walloon Lake is a beautiful lake with a great vibe - friendly people, great area with a bakery, local shops and a restaurant to boat to which we did many times. The location is also a short drive to downtown Petoskey, Bay Harbor, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs to enjoy boutique shopping and great restaurants. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit!
