About Kristin Kalush

We live in Boulder, Colorado with our two children. We love living in Colorado but always miss the lake so now have the best of both worlds.

Kristin Kalush purchased this house in 2016

Why Kristin Kalush chose Petoskey

We grew up going to Walloon Lake, so it's a very special place for us and are thrilled to have our own cottage on the lake. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. It creates the best of memories.

Sweet Walloon Lake Cottage
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Perfect summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our 4 nights at this beautiful cottage. It is cozy, yet open floor plan, and incredible views of beautiful Walloon Lake. The home was spotless, inviting and fully equipped with bath and beach towels, every kitchen utensil, brand new table settings, laundry soap, huge assortment of coffee and teas and so much more. The decor is up to date and comfortable. The mattresses were all so comfortable and the bedding all brand new. Cute touches throughout the cottage. Paddle board in the garage, plenty of beach chairs and two lounge chairs. The dock is brand new and there's a very nice fire pit next to lake. The owners are great to work with, very accommodating and provide guests with a home away from home. We also love the location. We had dinner at Terry's in Charlevoix, beers at Burnt Marshmallow brewery (3.5 miles), dinner via boat at the Bourbon Back and brunch at Chandler's in Petoskey.

We definitely recommend Sweet Walloon Lake cottage as the perfect rental!

Great way to spend along weekend in Nortern MI. The lake is great and the outdoor area is very relaxing. The owner ensures that the house is exceptionally clean. The extra's like great mattress, good sheets and fluffy towels were so appreciated. The other items that are stocked like garbage bags, toilet paper, shampoo, smore fixings, etc are such great add-on's.

Thanks for a great weekend spot to share with our family.

We loved our stay. Modern furnishings, super comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. Beautiful views and great, new dock to hang out on. Plenty of room for the boat we rented too. We will definitely be back.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to rent on Walloon Lake, be sure to check out this little gem in the North Arm. There is a sandy bottom off the dock and it is a quick, easy drive to shopping. We loved it! Its very comfortable and welcoming. The owners have thought of everything. The children were delighted with the fixings for s'mores which they had on the first night.
