Spend your days enjoying world class skiing, sledding, and ice skating in the winter, or swimming, playing golf, boating, canoeing, biking, fishing, walking, and more, in the summer. There is also a world class casino, Odawa, just a few miles away for gaming, dining, and shopping.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am a high school English and journalism teacher and my husband is an electrical engineer. I earned my bachelor's degree from CMU, master's from Wayne State. After several years in the advertising business, I stayed home with my girls until they were all in elementary school, then went back to school to get my teaching certificate. I now teach at Lake Orion High School. We have three daughters and live in Lake Orion.

Why the Owner Chose Petoskey:
I grew up with a cottage in Harbor Springs, owned by my grandparents. I fell in love with the area. My husband and I decided Petoskey was a little more our speed, and spent one weekend looking at houses for sale. We fell in love with the front porch, incredible wood trim, fire place, and potential to make the attic a play space for kids. The charming kitchens - two, making having more than one family here a breeze - were a huge bonus. Add in the carriage house with a second floor, wonderful neighbors, and ability to walk everywhere, and we were sold.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our family loves to downhill ski all winter and this location offers 3 world class ski hills within 15 minutes. In the summer, we stroll downtown Petoskey trying all of the quaint restaurants and sandwich shops, and of course, ice cream shops. We love walking along Bear River and out to the lighthouse where our children will spend hours jumping from the break wall into the bay. We also enjoy biking along the Wheelway into Charlevoix for lunch, and back again.
