"Our family stayed at 'The Retreat' and every member of our family enjoyed the stay. We had grandparents, grown children, and 2 teenagers (boys). This lovely home was perfect for us.
We took advantage of the Sandy beach, hot tub, and sauna. We made crepes for breakfast every morning ... great dinners in the well equipped kitchen.... We like to cook and purchased fresh veggies from Drummond Farms...lovely.
We have teenagers in our group so going out on the trails on ATVS was a big part of the trip for them. It was great to have 3 bathrooms and a washer and dryer when we returned from our awesome dusty rides.
We had a perfect week and we highly recommend this home. It was clean and welcoming. The owners and caretakers are great.
We will be back!!!"

"Our family stayed here for a week in July. 6 adults and three children. Great place! Three bedrooms and lots of living space with two levels! Was perfect for us! We rented the pontoon boat as well and it was all very well kept and clean. Very nice kitchen that has all the supplies you could need to cook/grill in! Fire pit and great dock to fish off for fun! We caught lots of perch and bluegill! You can stand in the sandy water right off the pier or float! Very nice!The owner was great to deal with and very responsive! The car ride to town was less than 10min, very convenient. Lots of fun stuff to do in town. Highly recommend reserving a spot on the pirate boat at pirates hideaway. Very fun and family friendly. They also have a tiki bar and ice cream shoppe. Also recommend liefs cafe for breakfast and lunch! Overall we loved the house and couldn't have been happier! We will def be back!"

"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!"

"Our family of four had a wonderful time at Sweet Emma's. There are bikes, kayaks, canoes, and a row boat available to rent during your stay. The beds and couch were very comfortable. There is a crib for those visiting with infants. Sweet Emma's kitchen has everything you would need to prepare a nice dinner. Location is within minutes of shopping, restaurants, and ice cream. Looking forward to relaxing at Sweet Emma's next year!"
