Quaint cottage ideally located on Crooked Lake in a unique, park like community called Watersedge Resort. The shared resort offers 450 feet of waterfront access, sandy beach and a one-of-a-kind shallow, hard bottom beach that stretches out at least 225 feet, with only waist deep water. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake.
The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your watercrafts of up to 26 feet. Also included is a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.
Take a trip through the Inland Waterway on your boat or rent one from the two marinas less than 2 miles away. Crooked Lake is connected to Lake Huron by traveling through Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. It is a beautiful way to spend a sunny summer day.
Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Jump on the paved bike trail connecting Alanson to Petoskey to Charlevoix. Your only a 6 mile ride to the Petoskey State Park.
Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 15 minutes from your doorstep.
Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your cottage. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation.
Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 30 minutes from the resort.
With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on your list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the 'new and ultimate' Odawa Casino in town.

We stayed in the early spring. I was pretty cold so we couldn't really open up the cabin. It had a very strong smell of mold. Without that smell, it would have been perfect. Close to the towns we wanted to visit, clean and comfortable. As it was, the smell nearly drove us away early. Get rid of the small and I would stay again.
This cottage is very well located. You can see Crooked Lake from the window and it was very beautiful. I am sure it would be even better in the summer. The cottage is conveniently located about 15 mins from Boyne Highlands and NubsNob resorts. We stayed there over a very cold weekend for skiing and had a great time. The furnace was a bit loud but manageable.
This unit was clean and the owner was very nice.
We are hoping to return for more family fun.
Thanks for your hospitality,
This little cottage was perfect for our family ski trip. I have a 6 and 7 year old and this little house was perfect for us. Besides being a perfect size and great price, the house was immaculate! No strange smells and no dust in the corners. I have never felt so at home in someone else's home! Thank you so much, and we will be back for sure!
My daughter and I both loved this place. Nice beach area; close to groceries, etc.
I would like to stay here again; however, I rarely make it to Michigan.
Two suggestions only: I would have liked more light sources in the bedrooms and living room since my Daughter and I are both avid readers and also like to crochet and knit; the other suggestion is to provide measuring cups and spoons since I love to cook even when I am on vacation.
We had an amazing time at this cottage! The space and accommodations were just perfect for us and our two young boys. It was rainy and cold the entire time and we STILL had a blast. The location of the cottage was a perfect landing spot for our travels to Petoskey, Harbor Springs, and Makinac Island! The cottage was cute and cozy & right on the water as described. The owner, Kevin, was so quick to respond when I had questions or needed info. Thanks, Kevin!
We will definitely try to get this spot next summer!
Our family had a wonderful time! The cute, cozy cottage had everything we needed. Kids have already asked, "when can we go again?" It was a perfect location for us with plenty to do. Volleyball, basketball, beach and more. We hope to go again next year!
Crooked Lake is part of the Inland Waterway. The Inland Waterway connects Lake Huron to Mullet Lake, Burt Lake, Crooked Lake and Pickeral Lake. A beautiful boating experience.
