Kalkaska Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Great for families for swimming, sportsmen looking to fish, canoeing, cross-country skiing and also great for the off-road enthusiast looking to go snowmobiling and 4-wheeling. Nice 2 bedroom cottage situated on 90 feet of sandy beach frontage on Log Lake which is a 26 acre (no wake)swimming and fishing lake two miles from downtown Kalkaska.

The lake is located in the midst of state land, so you can hike, ORV, bike, snowmobile, or cross country ski through hardwoods and pines. Blue Bear & Leetsville Snowmobile/ORV Trail is accessible from the driveway of the cottage. No trailering required.

About The Owner

We love the sun, water, and snow of Kalkaska and Log Lake.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

Why The Owner chose Northern Michigan

We chose to buy this cottage in Kalkaska for our family weekend vacations Up North. We love to snowmobile and ski in the Winter. We love to kayak and swim in the lake in the Summer. It is the perfect location for us because we like the proximity to Traverse City for shopping and Downtown events like the Cherry Festival, but we also like the secluded small lake environment to relax. No jet skis or water skiers to worry about when the kids are out in the lake swimming. We love the area and hope to retire here in the future.

  • 4 of 5

My family just stayed there recently. My grandchildren loved the lake and the kayak, I even tried the kayak too and I am a non swimmer.

The rental was close to restaurants, grocery, and gas stations.

I would recommend this rental to family and friends.

Great home. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here for a week in July, 2015 and had a wonderful time. The house was so cute, very clean, very well stocked with anything you would need in the kitchen, tons of blankets, lots of sleeping options. We spent many hours in the lake. My daughters (ages 3 and 4) had such a ball in the lake. Since they don't have much experience swimming it was nice that it's so shallow near the shore and they felt very comfortable in it. It's a very quiet lake with just a little noise coming from the campground but nothing at all bothersome. We took day trips to Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Petoskey. They were all very easy drives, about 45 min to an hr away. We also checked out the Butterfly House and Bug Zoo just down M-72 in Williamsbug. Very cool place! We really enjoyed our stay in Kalaska. We typically vacation on the east side of the state so this being our first time to the west side, their were no disappointments! What a gorgeous area. We would definitely visit again.

Perfect Family Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great for our family vacation, the lake was clean and beautiful, and it was nice to have the sandy beach for the kids. We were able to have a great variety of staying around the house and venturing out to Traverse City, and there were many modern conveniences nearby in town. Only downside was not having on site laundry, however the laundromat was right down the road and had everything we needed.

A great stay!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for a long weekend in mid october to check out the fall leaves. The house was easy to find and located just outside of town. It is near a campground which was closed at the time but i imagine could get noisy in the summer months? The house is definitely set up to host large gatherings...lots of beds, blankets, seating areas both inside and out, dishware, and the like. However, i felt that storage for our own things, luggage and foodstuffs, was very limited. The downstairs bath is a bit small but the half bath upstairs was more spacious. The staircase to the upstairs is a wrought iron spiral staircase and gave this mom of a 3 year old and an 18 month old a bit of anxiety as the master bedroom was downstairs and and the twin beds were all upstairs. Everything worked out fine however. The deck and yard were lovely, lots of flat grassy areas for the kids to run around.We enjoyed the firepit, fishing in the lake, and digging in the sand. Overall a great cottage for the price!
