Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful crystal clear lake with a great place to enjoy it in! The cottage is in great shape, just as pictured. Plenty of beds and space to house the 10 people listed. I would highly recommend using the pontoon boat to experience the lake beyond the shoreline of the property. A large living room and a fire pit by the water made for perfect places relax and unwind at the end to each day. Awesome place to spend time up-north with some friends and family!

Northern Michigan Gem

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I took our motorcycles up there to explore a portion of the Michigan Cross Country Trail and other curvy stretches of pavement near Petoskey for a weekend. We were not disappointed. To put the icing on the cake after a long day of riding through rough terrain, the amenities at the house relieved us from our aches and pains. The showers were excellent, had plenty of heat & water pressure. There is ample space at every room, the wrap around couch in the living room was perfect to kick your feet up and relax to the awesome view of the lake. The backyard is awesome to have a bonfire and I was looking forward to a warm cup of coffee on the beach the next day. If we had any regrets it would be not staying there longer. I would recommend this to my friends and family 10/10.
