Walloon Lake house description
This vintage cottage sits near Michigan's most beautiful lake with a lake view. It was updated in 1999 and has been featured in Traverse, The Magazine and The New York Times. It is a perfect getaway for a family. The cottage has two porches (one screened), a living room, sitting room, and den, along with a large dining room. The cottage lives large - there are multiple areas to congregate or to wonder off for a nap or to read a book.
The cottage is not lakefront (and the rental rates are not lakefront either), it sits on the north side of North Shore Drive. A public area is directly across the street, a boat launch and public beach are within a half mile. You can walk along the lake path to the Village General Store, the library or post office.
Two great state parks are within a 20 minute drive - Young State Park in Boyne City and Petoskey State Park.
The cottage is perfectly situated to explore all of the surrounding resort towns (Charlevoix, Boyne City, Petoskey, Bar Harbor and Harbor Springs)as well as the beautiful countryside in trips further afield (Elk Rapids, Traverse City, the UP, Cross Village, etc.).

ReviewsWrite a review
We had 3 generations celebrating an anniversary and birthday together. There was plenty of room to spread out or be together. The cottage is even prettier and more charming than the photos, and very clean, well maintained, and convenient. Anything you might think of needing was there. The location was easy to find. The lake view is lovely. We rented a boat from Walloon Central Power Sports & Marine at the foot of Walloon, and we could have walked down to pick it up. We spent a day at Mackinac Island. We went biking, hiking, and exploring by car. We hope to go back again.

I echo what Sue said, except we only had three generations together. We caught small-mouth bass and walleye and perch in Lake Walloon. We especially enjoyed good weather. We loved the house, porches and grounds.

Our stay at this cottage was awesome. We had 4 generations staying together and we couldn't have asked for a better place. It was spacious, clean, comfortable - if you needed it, they had it. We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.
