Northern Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom, 4 bath lakefront home sleeps 16

Gorgeous custom home close to Petoskey, Harbor Springs and Indian River. 163' of sandy water frontage with a beautifully landscaped yard. Bring your boat to Pickerel Lake and experience Michigan's amazing Inland Waterway. Enjoy cookouts, campfires, and some of the best fishing right off the dock. The view is stunning, facing south across the lake at the Wildwood Hills. The frontage is calm and protected from the prevailing north and west winds, allowing guests to safely moor their boat and maximize their outdoor pleasure. Covered porches and open patios surround this home that is large, but cozy at the same time, with panoramic views from indoors.

Perfect Vacation for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 spent the most delightful week at this incredible home! We walked into a stunning home that was meticulously clean and with awesome decor. There was plenty of room to spend quality time with family or alone time too! The outside is as beautiful as the inside. The description of the home is spot on. The owner, Wendy, is a breeze to work with. We are returning in 2016!

Owner thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

The owner thought of everything with this home. We rent a lot of homes / condos and it always feel like you are half equipped for your week. Not here! This owner truly wants her guests to feel at home and comfortable. The cottage provides paddleboards, paddleboat, plenty of seating for everyone, a great sandy beach, and just an overall relaxing experience. You will not be dissatisfied!

Beautiful clean enjoyable property. home is set up perfectly for larger groups of people and families. no surprises or disappointments. this was a fun and wonderful stay. Clean beach and lawn made for a super exciting week for children and adults alike. Inside the home is set up wonderfully for dining, resting, talking, or relaxing with a good book. it is a very spacious home with plenty of room for larger groups of people. Fishing was diverse, as we caught bluegill, perch, pike, bass, walleye, and even a gar fish! if fishing is your passion you will need to take your own boat however.

Family Reunion at Pickerel Lake

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home on Pickerel Lake was the perfect setting for our family reunion with five grown sons and their spouses and children. The home was spotless, the landscaping beautiful, the lake setting was perfect and we enjoyed it tremendously. The kitchen was exceptional as were many of the indoor amenities, but it was the outdoors that captivated us.

We rented a pontoon boat, at Ryde Marine, for the week. Along with the two paddle boards belonging to the property and our own kayaks, this was an exceptionally wonderful week on the water.

The hammock on the property got much use and the interesting swing made of a ski lift chair was another novelty that found many takers. The fire pit was enjoyed by the whole family every night. We particularly enjoyed gathering at the large outdoor table and chairs just through the sliding glass doors outside the formal dining room. Beautiful and cool location that felt as much indoors as out. Very nice.

The home gave a feeling of peaceful isolation; just what we needed for a wonderful get-away. It also had a nice size driveway which easily accommodated our numerous vehicles as family came from all over the country and even overseas.

The home owner was more than helpful, prompt to respond to our every question and concern and gracious to a fault. We highly recommend this wonderful property to anyone looking for a peaceful lakefront vacation.
