Our Family Cottage is located on the west arm of Walloon Lake situated between Petoskey and Boyne City, approximately 45 miles from the Mackinac Bridge. Nestled at the end of Zenith Heights Road on three acres of land amidst scenic mature forests, our property offers a picturesque, relaxing setting. The Family Cottage shares the property with the Guest Cottage. No roads intersect the area between the cottages and the lakefront.
Walloon Lake is one of Michigan’s most beautiful and clean inland lakes. With its distinctive turquoise color it is over ten miles long and has Brown & Lake Trout, Walleye, Northern Pike, Bass, and Perch. The lake bottom is free of weeds and is sandy with a gradual slope from the end of the dock outward.
Our cottages share 200’ of shore front, two swimming rafts and a large, gorgeous dock offering plenty of room for you to enjoy the beautiful sunrises & moor your own boat. At the water’s edge a lounge deck with table and chairs and a small sandy beach area for children awaits you, your family & friends. Each cottage has it's own tandem kayak & camp fire pit to enjoy.
The Family Cottage is set atop a gentle slope approximately 90' from the lake below. This ranch style home can accommodate up to 8 people. Vaulted ceilings and cedar walls give the cottage a wonderful “lake-home” feel. The fully-equipped kitchen lies adjacent to the laundry room (complete with washer, dryer & washtub)dining room, and master bedroom. The living room has 2 leather couches & leather chair, a wood burning fireplace, TV with DVD and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the lake.
