Our Guest 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 Guest Cottage shares the property with the Family 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 Guest Cottage is located on a gentle slope approximately 170' from the lake. This 1600 square foot ranch style home has a walk out lower level that can accommodate up to 10 people. A spacious deck complete with table & chairs, along with gas & charcoal grills make for a perfect area to enjoy a dinner on a summer evening! Located next to the cottage is a play area containing a picnic table, swing set, and a Tiny Tikes merry-go-round.
The upper level of the Guest Cottage was renovated in 2015-enlarging the kitchen, living room, bathroom & exposing the original Douglass Fir floors! The upstairs has an open floor plan between the fully-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, kitchen table with built in benches, and living room with comfortable swivel chairs & leather couch-with wainscoting throughout. The living room also has a TV & DVD. There are three bedrooms; two with queen-sized beds and the third with 2 twin beds-all bedrooms have ceiling fans. The wainscoting continues in the upstairs bathroom & it has a new 4' shower.
The lower level is accessed from the upstairs by a spiral staircase or from the outside. A large, open family room has Cedar wainscoting, ceiling fans, a queen-sized sleeper sofa, and two loveseats, TV & DVD, along with a sitting area to enjoy our many board games. A bedroom is located off of the family room & has a queen bed, ceiling fan and adjoining bathroom with a tub/shower. The laundry room with a full sized washer and dryer & wash tub is also located downstairs.
The cottage is non-smoking & has adjustable electric heat available in every room. Blankets, pillows, linens, and bath towels are furnished–please bring your own beach towels. No smoking, pets, firearms, fireworks, or additional guests living in campers are allowed to ensure a safe, comfortable environment for all. A local caretaker is on call and mid-week cleaning is also available for an additional cost.
