Lovely cottage with dynamite deck

  • 5 of 5

Vacationed here this summer with daughters, their spice and two kiddies. Loved the spacious living area where we could spread out in luxury. Master bedroom is huge. We guessed the owners may have done some painting because everything was spic and span. Maybe they have super cleaning ladies! The best aspect of this cottage is the deck: large and with every amenity including a great view of the lake. Pontoon works well and is great for families with kids. Would definitely return another summer.

lake vacation

  • 2 of 5

The positives for the cottage are the beautiful view of the lake from the living area and the pontoon boat. The negative was the smell of mold in the master bedroom area. It was so bad I could not sleep there but had to sleep in one of the other bedrooms. When I told the owner of the problem, I was told the master bedroom area was built at a different time from the rest of the cottage. The master bedroom area was a major disappointment! I would not go back...

Owner's Response: After talking to the renter I was very alarmed and immediately called my cleaning people who had cleaned just previous to the renters arriving to make sure everything was okay. They confirmed that there was no odor. I also called the renter that had vacated that day at noon to make sure that they did not have a problem during the week that they were there and they reassured me that they also had no problem. I feel bad that this renter felt differently.

A Little Slice of Heaven.......

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a weeks stay at Walloon Lake with my husband and two kids (11 & 14). This was our second year staying at the house - loved it so much last year we had to return again this year! The home is wonderfully located overlooking Walloon Lake - panoramic views from the upper deck and from inside the house too. Loved to sip my coffee in the den and enjoy the view. A few steps down to the private dock which was perfect for watching water skiers, boaters etc., sunbathing and swimming in the beautifully clear lake waters. Rented Kayaks which was fun too. Last year we biked from Petoskey to Harbor Springs on the Little Traverse Wheelway. A short drive takes you into Petoskey, Charlevoix or Harbor Springs with plenty of places to eat and little shops to browse. Everything about the property was a true and accurate reflection of the listing. The owner checked in on arrival & departure too to make sure all was well and was very helpful answering any questions I had prior to our visit. Would highly recommend this property!!

Splendid place to enjoy northern Michigan

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently returned from a week in this home on Walloon Lake. The house was extremely clean, and the views spectacular. We were very happy with everything. The area was quiet and peaceful. The outside areas were wonderfully laid out with lots of places to stretch out and relax. Water access and swimming was great. Inside, the furniture was comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. It is nice to have a location close to town amenities, but it still feels like it is in its own little world too. The owner checked in with us after we arrived in case we had any questions, which was thoughtful. We did have to launder all the sheets and towels before leaving, which is the first time we have ever been asked to do that after many years of renting various places. Overall, highly recommended.
