Oden House Rental Photos and Description

House, Lakefront (Sleeps 8)

This traditional turn of the century cottage is on Crooked Lake. Large wrap around front porch and side yard. This grand old cottage has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, large living room, dining room which seats 10, large kitchen with butchers block, maids room, and laundry. Food pantry, pan pantry, and glass pantry are just a few examples of the amenities of this old cottage. There is plenty of room for a large family. Cable boxes in living room and maids room. Large side yard for croquet, badminton , or volleyball. Sunning platform at the end of dock and a covered boat lift. This cottage has been in our family for three generations, but we are offering it to you for a few weeks this summer. Great place to bring the family together and start your own Northern Michigan tradition. We are close to Petoskey, Harbor Springs, and Mackinaw City providing a large selection of shopping, dining and golf. Miles of bike trails just steps from the cottage. Two marinas on the lake for boat rentals to enjoy the historic inland waterway, ultimately connecting you to the Great Lakes. Please call me for pricing details (we do not charge the fee.)

What makes this house unique

Lake view from the large porch. Great place to watch the beautiful sunsets, or relax after a day on the lake.

Amazing a movie set

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented this house for a week for the past two summers and it is simply incredible. It's a true lake house, with an amazing porch, a huge lawn for frisbee throwing and a swim dock into the lake. The house is wonderful with large bedrooms, lovely art and a huge dining room table for family meals and game playing. The owner is absolutely lovely and someone we now count as a friend. If you want granite countertops and stainless steel everything, this is not your spot. If you want to stay in a home that feels like it's been loved by your family for generations, this is it. We love everything about it. Look for the messages written by "summer staff" from the 20’s written on the walls of the maids room off the kitchen. This house is a treasure.
