"The place is awesome! It has everything you could need. Having air conditioners in every too was an added bonus. The house is much larger than the pictures depict. It also has a great private yard. We walked downtown and to the nearby boat ramp for Lake Charlevoix. I would recommend for anyone to stay here!"

"An amazing time was had by all at Shangri La. We had 16 people and had plenty of space inside and out. We had a great time at the lake and spent a lot of time at the beach. Love the screened in porch. It is a very spacious gathering place and a great way to get fresh air without bugs. The history of the area is awesome. Just a short walk to the original general store and a book store that use to be a restaurant. The locals are very knowledgeable and eager to talk about Hemingway if that interests you. A great place to feel like you are part of a great history and like you have stepped back in time. The owner was awesome. We came into a pan of brownies as a welcome. Sue came and checked on us shortly after arrival and even though they are right next door, it's like they aren't there at all. If you need anything at all, she is there to help. The house is a short drive to Boyne City and close to Charlevoix and Petoskey. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope that someday we can return."

"We really enjoyed our week at the chalet. The house had everything we needed for our convenience and was very clean. The beds were super comfortable and there was plenty of seating in the living room for relaxing and TV watching. The eating areas were good and we enjoyed our most of our meals out on the deck overlooking beautiful Lake Charlevoix. The dock is very nice and there is a sitting area too with comfortable chaise lounges. The water was crystal clear and we enjoyed our swims. The chalet is located in a good area for touring the northwest of Michigan and we had a blast in Boyne City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, and Traverse City. We swam, golfed, visited the wineries, and went to the casinos and thoroughly enjoyed our week at the chalet!"

"This is our 3rd July in a row at the Guest Cottage and the 1st stay after the remodel. We have 5 to 6 teenagers (boys and girls) ranging from 15 to 22 and they all love it. With the clearness of the lake, the sand bottom, and seclusion of the cottage, it feels like a combo vacation - all the privacy of a mountain getaway combined with the fun in the sun of a beach stay. The dock is so relaxing, we get up early to go down and sit with our morning coffee and enjoy the peace and quiet. The setup of the dock and mooring buoys make it perfect for boats and jet skis. The lake is beautiful. Coming from Kentucky where most of the lakes are from flood control, the clearness of Walloon was stunning! The cottage is very comfortable. The kids like to gather in the basement to watch movies. The remodel enlarged the main bathroom, added kitchen counter space, and brightened all the rooms. The owners are fantastic and we actually had the opportunity to meet them in person this year! We all had a fabulous time sharing stories and watching the sunset. For folks who like to get out, there are three towns within 20 minutes - Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Boyne City. If you go make sure to check out Johan's for pasties! They even have one in Walloon Village. I highly recommend either house for a relaxing get away or a base for sightseeing or adventuring."
