Petoskey condo description

This first-floor condo unit boasts one of the best locations possible! Not only is it on beautiful Round Lake, it's also right across the street from the State Park...and right smack in the middle between Downtown Petoskey & Harbour Springs (15 minutes either way). Historic Mackinaw City is a 25 mile trip.

A 5-minute stroll out the front door & down a flowered path will bring you to a classy little shopping area...with a unique food store, butcher shop, wine & liquor store, tasty homemade breakfast place, fresh seafood restaurant and more.

FYI, I am originally from Chicago and my husband Kurt grew up in Detroit. We discovered Petoskey nearly 20 years ago and have gone back to visit every single year since. Our son and daughter also have so many happy memories of vacation times spent there. They especially love the beach, the state park and the scenic bike paths that run through town (which are wide, safe, & far away from any cars). I've also always been impressed with how CLEAN everything is there...and the flowers everywhere. There are lots of good restaurants, shopping, nightclubs and now this brand new, huge casino.

Whatever your interest, whether it is golf, shopping, eating at fine restaurants, fishing, swimming, skiing, hunting, antiques, gambling, bicycling, hiking, boating, family activities...or just relaxing. Petoskey has all of those and more to offer. Which is why we finally decided to invest in a condominium here. We figure this area isn't going to remain relatively undiscovered for too much longer.

NOTE: Our guests receive a set of keys to the private on-site heated indoor pool and whirlpool hot tub. Which sure feels good after a busy day out exploring!

We hope you have found your next wonderful vacation home! If you've never visited Petoskey before, don't be surprised if you get hooked on the area too. It has a way of doing that.

Feel free to call us (Kurt & Karen Shader) with questions or to check the availability on the unit. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
