Why Pam Jones chose Oden

Northern Michigan boasts countless activities to enjoy throughout the 4 seasons. Crooked Lake is an all sports lake that is part of the famed Inland Waterway which is 40 miles long and includes 4 spring fed clear water lakes, 3 navigable rivers and eventually outlets to Lake Huron. The Inland waters are great for watersports, fishing, cruising and hanging out with friends at the many sandbars throughout the Waterway.

All new bike trails have just been added for bike riding and walking between Alanson, Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Charlevoix.

Mackinaw City is just a 35 minute drive away and from there, take a ferry to the ever popular Mackinaw Island.

The fall color tours are spectacular.

The Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob ski slopes are just 10 minutes by car.

Snow mobile trails are very close by as well.

There are two marinas within a mile of the condo, Ryde Marina and Windjammer Marina. There are also several bike rental shops close by if you can't bring your own.

So many choices!

What makes this condo unique

Great Fall get a way across the street from the 26 mile Rail- to- Trails. Bike the fabulous Fall color tour with many restaurants and brew pubs along the way.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th year in this condo. We absolutely love it.

The beach and lake are perfect for young kids. Our three-year old daughter taught herself to swim in the lake!

There are so many things to do, watch the Petoskey steel drum band, watch the speed boat races, Oden Fish Hatchery, tunnel of trees, lots of close, great restaurants. This year we even found a new favorite, the Thorne Swift Nature Preserve.

Looking forward to our stay next year.

Great property, right on Crooked Lake with a small beach to play on! Beautifully updated inside!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property! The house was fully stocked with everything you would need to be comfortable! The condo is completely renovated on the inside and is very well kept. There is a very small beach right outside the back sliding glass doors with a large sandbar that allows you to have lots of water access which we loved for our little ones! The location was pretty central to Petoskey (15 min), Charlevoix (30 min) and Mackinac Ferry (30 min) if you want to go out and explore. We loved the kids room which had two twin beds and a bunk bed (full on the bottom and twin on top). The condo offered a lot of sleeping options. The only drawback is the condo sits on a very busy street so at night, the kids room and the bedroom with the queen is pretty loud with the cars and semis zooming by. My kiddos didn't mind it too much. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in northern Michigan thanks to this accommodation.

Nice Condo and Beach Front

  • 3 of 5

I would love to rate this a 3.5 star but half stars are unavailable. 4 stars in my reviews are reserved for stays that are nearly perfect. 3-3.5 for a "pretty good stay" . Condo could be a 4 with a few changes.

I start my reviews with the Cons just in case any of these items are major deal breakers.

Cons:

No AC on main floor, or in the bedroom that sleeps the most people (Bunk Room)

Door handle to main building broken

Grill is falling apart

Living Room is very small

Pros:

Beautifully maintained condo

Updated fixtures, appliances, and decor

Can accommodate a lot of people (we had 10 sleeping here)

Close proximity to Petoskey and everything to do in that area

More in depth

I booked this condo because it said it was air conditioned. I didn't know that the only rooms that had ac were 2 of the bedrooms. The main area struggled to get below 78* even with fans and the lake breeze. This was very difficult for my mother who is older to tolerate. The bigger issue here is the bedroom that is meant to sleep the most people doesn't have AC and doesn't face the lake for a breeze. I felt really bad that one of the families that stayed with us chipped in for this place and slept in a very warm room with their baby. We ran the ac on full blast in the other two rooms with fans everywhere to bring the temp down to 73 in that room at night. This can be fixed by adding another AC or making the listing clear and people can decide to stay or not.

The main entrance door handle was broken. This wouldn't be a big deal to me if one of the people who own the condo next door didn't bark at me when I arrived to "KEEP THE DOOR CLOSED AND LOCKED" while I was bringing in 11 people's worth of luggage and had the door propped. When the door closed, I was locked out. My father and I tried to fix it but the handle and assembly needs to be replaced. This is the door that leads to the condo, not the door on the condo itself.

Overall we enjoyed our stay but truth be told had I known about the AC situation I wouldn't have booked. This was the most important factor on choosing a place to stay in this area and why I chose this one. It was large enough for my party and would keep everyone cool which was very important with babies and elderly traveling with us.

Owner's Response: There is AC listed in the master bedroom only because it faces Sourh. In 8 years of renting we have never had a complaint re: comfort. There is a gas grill in the garage, not the one in the common area falling apart. The main intrance door is being replaced along with the exterior painting project. There are 2 living areas, one up and one down with decks attached on each floor. This condo is designed with outdoor living in mind.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time in this area. You are RIGHT in the middle of Harbor Springs and Petoskey. The lake is absolutely beautiful and clear and the water is shallow beyond the length of the dock. We spent a lot of time outside. If you have a kayak, bring it! The condo is very nicely decorated. The living area is quite small, though. There is a sitting room upstairs that provides an extra "hang out " space. There is only air upstairs in two bedrooms. The air conditioners were pretty loud, and if there was not a breeze, the condo gets hot. A minor issue, but worth thinking about. The grill was also an old charcoal grill that was falling apart. We made it work, but a new grill would be nice for future renters. Overall, a great value for the location, unique and updated architecture, and water access!
