Michigan was exceptionally good with our stay at the cottage we found through VRBO
"My wife Margaret & I have traveled the world for 43 years. As "senior travelers", we look forward to trips and expect the best in accommodations/lodging.
We always heard how lovely Michigan was in the summer. Coming from the south. we were looking for cooler weather mostly.
Not only did we find cooler weather but we found the incredible beauty of Michigan with it's many lakes, forest, rolling hills & farm lands. We explored from Kalamazoo in the southwest all the way north to Munising and the Picture Rocks National Lakeshore throughout August.
Friends ask us about our favorite part of this special month in Michigan. We say our time in Northwest Petoskey. With the length of our stay in Michigan we wanted a home not a hotel room. We found the perfect cottage for us. The location was just a few mile north of Petoskey. Everything we wanted to see and do in the area was within a short drive. The cottage was very spacious. The cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. It's furnishings/decor, it's size could not have been better. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner had material in the home that provided helpful tips on things to see & do in the area. Anytime we had questions throughout our stay, the owner was always available by phone to answer our questions. We love golf & found an abundance of fine golf in the area. We love sailing and found the perfect sunset cruise back in Charlevoix. Another day was spent on the lake just across the street exploring for adventure by renting a pontoon boat.
We have seen many places in our 44 years of travel. Our trip to Michigan was lovely. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone traveling through the Northwest Petoskey area. Don & Margaret Austin, Texas"

"First just to be clear, the place is great, none of us regret staying. The front door makes you think of castles the location is about 12 minutes from ski places and the upstairs is huge.
Rules are pretty simple and the Wi-Fi is thrown in. Only gripe we had, is that heat distribution upstairs is really bad. The thermostat is in the master bedroom facing the lake, and the cold really radiates of the glass balcony doors. If you turn up the heat in that room, trying to make up for it, the other 2 bedrooms get insanely hot. Again we solved it after the first night by burying the couple in that room in blankets and keeping the doors open everywhere, but it's something to be aware of in the winter.
Again, don't let that keep you from staying there, the lady owner of the place was great at communicating everything to us and the place was amazing in every other way."

"We had the BEST week staying at this adorable little cottage on Crooked Lake! Everything about it was great! The owners are very friendly and enjoyable to rent from. The cottage met all of the needs for our family with young boys! It was clean and stocked with everything we needed for cooking meals. Watersedge Resort is beautiful! The boys had a blast playing with "neighbor" kids from the resort cottages. They loved playing on the beach, basketball court, swing set and grounds. We all enjoyed bon fires on the beach, swimming and our day spent on the lakes by renting a pontoon from nearby Ryde Marina. We had a perfect week at Watersedge; made many new friends and memories that will last a lifetime!"
