About the Property

Cottage-sleeps 8-with lake views. 3 Bedrooms + trundle bed; 2 baths

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.

A screened in porch lies off of the dining room, looking out to a lake front patio-complete with table, chairs & a gas grill makes a perfect area to enjoy a meal on a summer evening! The Master bedroom has a king bed & ceiling fan, bath with shower and private screened in porch. The other 2 bedrooms have bunk beds with a full bath down the hall. Outside the 2 bedrooms is a den equipped with a trundle bed, piano, stereo/CD player, and board games.

This 1600 square foot cottage is non-smoking with adjustable electric heat available in every room. A charcoal grill is also available. Blankets, pillows, linens, and bath towels are furnished – please bring your own beach towels. No firearms, fireworks, or additional guests living in campers are allowed to ensure a safe environment for all. A local caretaker is on call and mid-week cleaning is also available for an additional cost.

If you are interested in booking the cottage, please feel free to contact us at the numbers below. In order to secure your date, a signed lease & deposit is required for rental. We welcome clean and respectful guests, and look forward to making your next vacation a Walloon one!

Please email or call with any questions to request more pictures or information.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: My husband & I live in Colorado & the kids are grown, so we don't get to enjoy the cottage as often as we would like. So, we thought we would share this magical place with others allowing them to make Walloon a tradition & create fond memories that will last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Boyne City, MI, USA:
My family lived in Ann Arbor, but my sister, mom & I would always spend our summers at my grandmother's cottage in Minnesota. My dad decided to buy the property on Walloon Lake so we could spend more time together. After an exhaustive search of other lakes, we found none could hold a candle to beautiful Walloon. We were all enchanted by the 'Caribbean turquoise blue color of the lake and the big, beautiful Hemlocks, Beech, Maple & Birch trees on the property. The 200' of shoreline & 3 acres gave us lots of room to play, explore & relax. The property initially had 2 small Sears & Roebuck cabins on it-that we later joined & modified to create the guest cottage after we finished building the family cottage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Some of our favorite things to do at the cottage are: watching the sunrise over a quiet, glassy lake; water skiing; swimming; kayaking; tubing; fishing; sailing; exploring the woods & looking for morels; laying on my back looking up through the tree limbs to the tree tops-marveling at their size; curling up with a good book in front of the fire; picking cherries at a nearby orchard; taking a nap on the porch; grilling an evening meal & enjoying it on the patio overlooking the lake; looking for satellites, falling stars & the northern lights on the dock; and our favorite of course...good conversation & drinks around the campfire with friends & family while enjoying s'mores :)
