Top notch place at a grand slam price!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are wondering does this place look as good in person as in the pictures, actually, it is much nicer in person. A totally updated home with all the amenities of your own home and is stocked to the gills with every imaginable thing you would need. Plenty of room for many boats as well as tons of seating inside and out for people in large numbers. Plus, this area is a hop, skip and jump from from Traverse City, Rapid City, Mancelona, Gaylord, Bellaire, and East Jordan.

Her lake side dock area has a sandbar with no rocks that goes far out so it is safe for children too. The water in this lake is very clear and loons/wildlife abound. One of the nice things about the lakes size is there would never be any boat overcrowding either.

Without hesitation Cheryl is one of the nicest host I have ever met and I have been traveling 40 years. We needed some extra cleats for our boats and she runs to the store immediately and brings some back for us. If you need anything Cheryl is more than available and accommodating for any request/questions you might come up with.

From myself and my group, thank you for sharing your place and being a "Great" host.

Another great year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at Critts Cove and it was another great vacation for the family. We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids - 7-6-2). Everyone had a great time on the sandy beach, long dock, and peaceful Intermediate Lake. We will definitely be coming back for a 3rd time!

All your needs fulfilled!

  • 5 of 5

If you just want to get away from it all and set yourself down in a restorative environment, this is the place. There was nothing to worry about, nothing to fret over and plenty of options on what we wanted to do with our time; experiencing the bliss of summer retreating! Would not hesitate to do it again! Thanks!

Lake House Fun

  • 5 of 5

This house right on the lake is a great find. Our family (2 adults and 3 kids) loved all the house amenities, sandy beach area, playground, and docks. It is very spacious and the home owner (who deserves all the credit for making this place so homey) really goes above and beyond to ensure your time there is the best it can possibly be.
