Petoskey cottage description
Quaint cottage ideally located on Crooked Lake in a unique, park like community called Watersedge Resort. The shared resort offers 450 feet of waterfront access, sandy beach and a one-of-a-kind shallow, hard bottom beach that stretches out at least 225 feet, with only waist deep water. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake.
The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your watercrafts of up to 26 feet. Also included is a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.
Take a trip through the Inland Waterway on your boat or rent one from the two marinas less than 2 miles away. Crooked Lake is connected to Lake Huron by traveling through Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. It is a beautiful way to spend a sunny summer day.
Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Jump on the paved bike trail connecting Alanson to Petoskey to Charlevoix. Your only a 6 mile ride to the Petoskey State Park.
Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 15 minutes from your doorstep.
Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your cottage. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation.
Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 30 minutes from the resort.
With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on your list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the 'new and ultimate' Odawa Casino in town.

This cottage was fantastic for my family!!! I have 3 young boys that did not want to leave! It had everything you could want right there for us. We had a great time fishing, swimming, kayaking, and of course late night campfires on the beach. My boys also liked having access to a swing set, horse shoes and the beach to collect sea shells and build sand castles! This cabin was so nice with anything you need, and was super clean. I was also impressed with all the fun things to do right around the area. We had a great time and looking forward to going back in the future!!

review of Crooked lake cottage
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very nice and it was better in person than the photos. It was very clean. The area was very nice and we would definitely recommend the place and we would like to go back in the future. The lake was beautiful, we caught some fish and the leaves were starting to turn, which made the scenery even better.

Our family of 4 loved our stay here! The cottage was very clean, perfectly appointed and located in a great spot. Just 10 minutes from Petoskey State Park and the "big" lake, we could spend the day jumping waves in Lake Michigan and come home to enjoy our lakefront view for sunsets, cookouts and bonfires. Shopping/eating in Petoskey and Harbor Springs is close by, as well as bike trails and locally caught (and smoked) whitefish at nearby markets. We definately would return.

The kids loved the beach. You don't need to bring chairs or toys. There are plenty to share. The cottage had comfy beds, and great TVs. The wireless reached the beach and boat slip! If you are staying for a week, do bring enough essential clothes and extra bath towels or plan on laundry time. The cottage is right on route 31 so it is very easy to find whatever you need. Go right for Alanson and great pancakes at Pauly's Home Cooking, or left for Petoskey State Park (about 15 minutes), and the beautiful Bay. We spent some days at the Crooked Lake beach only. We rented a boat at Ryde Marine and took the waterways to Burt Lake. Burt Lake was great for tubing. It is huge. We also spent several days driving to beaches and the fun cities of Charlevoix, Harbor Springs and Petoskey. It really is a good location for getting anywhere Up North.

Owner response: Thanks for the review and we are glad you enjoyed the cottage and resort. Look forward to see you next summer.
This cottage was great for my husband and I and our two boys. It was clean, comfortable and perfect for our week Up North. The cottage itself is decorative, cozy, very well maintained and just the right size. The resort enabled our kids to never be bored. Volleyball, basketball, bonfires and the unbeatable beach. We will definitely return! It is the perfect location for a small family. Thanks.

Our family had a wonderful vacation! Crooked lake is a beautiful lake to ski, knee board, fish and to relax. The resort is beautiful. Take a relaxing boat ride through the channels of Indian River to Burt lake to Mullet lake. It has everthing you need for a relaxing family vacation! The town of Petoskey has so much to offer. The trail from downtown Petoskey to Harbor Springs is a beautiful seanic route. Stop by the Not Bar for a great Lunch or dinner! This is a Family Vacation we plan on for many years to come!

Charming 2 bedroom cottage, with a beautiful beach and lots to do for the kids. My boys enjoyed playing volleyball, fishing, swimming, horseshoes, basketball-just steps outside of the door. We had bonfires at night, and brought our jet ski-free ramp just down the road. Plenty of lawn chairs at the beach to enjoy the great sunsets. The cottage is clean and well-maintained. Lots of restaurants and places to visit nearby. We will definitely return for more vacations at this location.
