Enter into this charming cottage from the wraparound porch through original wood double doors. Find yourself in a cozy space with a new mid-century feel. The main level entertaining area is very spacious with a large sectional couch to fall into while enjoying the gas fireplace, music over the record player, and a few drinks with friends and family. On the opposite side of the living area is a ten-person dining room table paired with floor to ceiling original glass doors, perfect for making memories and good conversations. The full kitchen is on the back of the home with new appliances and is connected to the laundry/mudroom area leading out to the expansive fenced-in backyard. This home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms (3 full, 4 half) giving plenty of space to let your group spread out. Bedroom one is located on the main level. There is second half bath connected to the dining room to service the rest of the main level as well. Taking the staircase to the upstairs brings you to four more bedrooms and five bathrooms – all of which at least have a half bath setup in each room creating more privacy for each guest. Each bedroom has a window A/C unit, as well as a ceiling fan. The North Western State Trail is one block away, which connects to the Little Traverse Wheelway, giving you miles and miles of asphalt trails for biking and running/walking. Located across the street from Crooked Lake and near many Northern Michigan destinations, this home is sure to be a family favorite!

Our group of 8 adults and a toddler had a marvelous family get-together here. The property managers were superb in communication, both before and during our stay. They provided items we asked about, and there was plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, dishwasher soap, and laundry detergent. The owners scheduled to have the roof replaced after our checkout and the property managers worked with us and our parking arrangements for delivery of the roofing supplies.<br/>Each bedroom having at least its own half-bath was very convenient, and the home was spotless. We enjoyed the proximity to nature preserves, wineries, breweries, and Mackinac Island (only 1/2 hour to the ferry). If it had been warmer, water sports were also nearby. The house had lots of space where we could all spread out or gather together. Two of our group had to work remotely and the wifi met their needs. This was such a great place and experience - I would highly recommend it!

Six friends and I spent five days in this lovely house. The kitchen was well appointed, the porch and backyard were comfortable and the fireplace made evenings at home feel cozy. The busy road in front of the house is a challenge.

Stayed 2 days ending in March, 2024
We had a pleasant weekend at the house and service was very responsive to our questions. <br/>The big advantage to the home is a private room and bathroom which we loved. Two did not have showers but there was one in hall. Everyone loved that. <br/>It is an older property and could use some outside work. But the charming wrap around porch made it nice on a beautiful March weekend. <br/>The place was clean except for two things we brought up to the owners. They promised to follow up on our concerns. <br/>It is a nice property for a group of 10. We enjoyed our stay. Kids want to come back next year.

Enchanting stay in this beautiful, spacious yet cozy home. A separate bathroom for all five bedrooms which was amazing for this group of eight women traveling for a winter getaway. Everything we needed was available. We will be back!

We had 8 people in our party for part of our stay. Check-in was easy and well defined. All the spaces including the bathrooms were spotless. The kitchen is well equipped too. The large dining table is great for larger groups as well as the many bathrooms. The location suited our party perfectly. One thing some may find somewhat annoying is the traffic noise if you are on the front porch or in the front bedroom at certain times of the day. No problem in the rest of the rooms.Beautiful unecumbered view of Crooked Lake plus a welcome bike/walking trail to the rear of the property. Overall, we found the property to be excellent and highly recommend it. Additionally, Also Vacation Properties were very responsive to our needs.

JAN D. from Jacksonville, FL recommends this vacation rental
Stayed 5 days ending in September, 2022
Overall great location. We went to Petoskey, Charlevoix, Mackinac Island snd Harbor Springs. All within a very close drive. <br/>House was of sufficient size. We were 3 couples celebrating 75th and 70th birthdays. <br/>The couch in the living room and the front porch furniture need to be replaced. Individual rocking chairs would be great. Living room couch seating was about a foot from the floor. Very difficult to get out of. Carpeting in bedrooms needs deep cleaning or replacement. <br/>The kitchen was quite sufficient. We cooked a few meals in and had everything needed. The dining room was a great size. <br/>Unfortunately we were so tired at night we didn&#x2019;t get a chance to use the fire pit. The backyard was very large and fenced<br/>Management was very responsive for 2 small problems we had.

Property is in a great location and spacious; good communication with Vacation Properties staff as had a water issue one morning-corrected right away. Bathrooms for all bedrooms were a plus, and mattresses were great. The only things I&#x2019;d note was the lack of closet space and property exterior needs some sprucing up.

Thank you for a wonderful experience. Communication was prompt and helpful, both leading up to our trip and during our stay. The cottage had plenty of room for our family of 9 and the large backyard and fire pit was an added bonus.
