"Everything was perfect - from the overall decor to the appliances in the kitchen and even the chairs on the dock - making the stay just wonderful. It was easy to ease right into vacation mode. Every bedroom overlooks the lake and with two porches and a balcony everyone can find their place to escape or spend time together. The ride in was so picturesque, the rolling hills into Petoskey - awe-inspiring! Our family enjoyed every minute at this beautiful cottage on Walloon Lake!"

"This was the perfect vacation rental. This is our fourth year vacationing in Western Michigan and this year was the best. The house is so inviting and family friendly. Very spacious inside and out. Large deck with an enclosed screened porch to the side was great for being outside even if it rains. Large lawn area was great for the kids to play. We were 2 families (4 adults, 6 kids) and it was the perfect size for us. It's a true gem. Very clean and well-decorated, doesn't feel like you're in a cabin. The access to the lake is great and the views are breathtaking. The dock is excellent for swimming, the water is shallow and the bottom is rather sandy/rocky, which was great for the kids. Overall, I would recommend this vacation rental to anyone. We will surely be back!"

"Hot Shot Lodge is everything and more that you can imagine. Extremely peaceful, yet close to all that Northern Michigan has to offer. Little Manistee River is your back yard with decking and steps all the way down. There is even a small landing dock with pool stairs to get in and out of the river if a swim is desired. Exceptionally clean and all the conveniences of home. Lots of sleeping arrangements and plenty of furniture for TV watching or large crowds. Owner has the lodge stocked with many essentials such as a wide variety of spices, paper products, laundry detergent, soaps, and more. Basically just take your personals, everything else is there! Also on location is a nice variety of puzzles, boards games, and child themed VHS movies. No DVD movies, however there is a player for such (Blu Ray). We went prepared with our favorite DVD's for evening nights and it was very relaxing after a long day. You will not be sorry with your stay at Hot Shot Lodge. We plan to return next year for another stay. Owners are awesome and they make your booking very easy and answer any questions in a timely manner prior to your arrival. You will love it!"

"This home was very clean and well furnished. Just a few miles from Lake Michigan and close to great restaurants, this was a great place to stay. The view from deck is lovely, has comfortable beds, and a great grill. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise. Highly recommended and would definitely rent this one again!"
