Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Quaint cottage ideally located on Crooked Lake in a unique, park like community called Watersedge Resort. The shared resort offers 450 feet of waterfront access, sandy beach and a one-of-a-kind shallow, hard bottom beach that stretches out at least 225 feet, with only waist deep water. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake.

The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your watercrafts of up to 26 feet. Also included is a volleyball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.

Take a trip through the Inland Waterway on your boat or rent one from the two marinas less than 2 miles away. Crooked Lake is connected to Lake Huron by traveling through Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. It is a beautiful way to spend a sunny summer day.

Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Jump on the paved bike trail connecting Alanson to Petoskey to Charlevoix. Your only a 6 mile ride to the Petoskey State Park.

Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 15 minutes from your doorstep.

Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your cottage. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation.

Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 30 minutes from the resort.

With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on your list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the 'new and ultimate' Odawa Casino in town.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

Perfect Location to Experience Northern Michigan

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very cute and had all the essentials for a wonderful stay. It was in a great location to see a lot of Northern Michigan. The lake was beautiful and very warm. All in all, we couldn't have asked for a better stay.

Crooked Lake cottage

  • 3 of 5

There was a definite mildew smell to the rooms when we walked in- but it got better when we opened windows, etc. We borrowed an air cleaner from our daughter and that really helped. We also borrowed lamps so we could read in the evening before bed. The cottage itself is not on the lake- but it's just a few steps to the lake.

It was clean and adequate for the 4 of us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and sorry to hear you did not think our cottage was up to a 5 star rating. In the future let an owner know of your issues so we have a chance to address your concerns during your stay. I want all my renters to enjoy their experiences. The location of the cottage is shown by the pictures on the website and stated in the description.

Nice, cozy, clean, as advertised

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a ski weekend. Close to Nubs and BH (15 minutes). Owner was responsive and easy to work with. Cottage was clean, nicely decorated, and everything was in working order. Some road noise for light sleepers. Laundry and better mattresses would complete this cool cottage. We will consider renting here again.
