Crooked Lake is a part of the famous Inland Water Route - a route of beautiful lakes and rivers connecting the Great Lakes. It is spring fed, has a sandy bottom and crystal clear water. There are marinas to rent boats and water toys, good fishing and a big sandbar famous among the locals as the great place to play. There are great skiing options for winter travelers as well.
Our cottage is in Oden, MI. It has a swimming area shallow enough for children yet deep enough at the end of our dock for just about any size boat. The dock is solid, steady, and has a large area on the end for playing, docking a boat and sunbathing. Beach towels are provided.
On the main floor is a clean, well-kept, open floor plan and a master suite. The living room houses a wood burning fireplace, game table (games & puzzles provided), and comfortable seating.
The kitchen is fully outfitted, stocked with good flatware, cutlery and cookware - including the extra cooking tools and serving pieces you’ll need for large family meals at the dining room table. The main level front porch has a table for eating and relaxing, and two of the second floor bedrooms have access to the veranda.
The beds are clad in 600+ thread count linens that are replaced each season. Each bedroom has an air conditioner, but up north, you’ll seldom need them.
A discreet housecleaning service will make a midweek visit for clean up. A laundry room right off the kitchen with an extra large washer and dryer is available to use.
With so much to do, you'll be tempted to stay put. But limitless opportunities await you outdoors. The cottage resides in Oden, and neighboring Petoskey and Harbor Springs are home to a variety of shopping, dining and recreation activities. High-demand destinations like Charlevoix, Mackinac Island and Bay Harbor are also not far. You are within minutes of some of the area’s several world-class golf courses, great fly-fishing locations, and beautiful ski slopes.
The cottage is right next to the new 60 mile rails-to-trails path that runs between Charlevoix and Mackinaw City - perfect for bikers, runners and hikers. And right outside the front door is Oden's famous lakefront lighted walkway.
