About the Property

Cottage sleeps 10-4 Bedrooms, 2 baths + queen sleeper sofa

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. No roads intersect the area between the cottage and the lakefront.

Walloon Lake, one of Michigan’s most beautiful and clean inland lakes, with its distinctive turquoise color, 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 tandem kayaks, two swimming rafts; and a gorgeous, large 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, two camp fire pits, and a small sandy beach area for children awaits you, your family & friends.

The Guest Cottage is located on a gentle slope overlooking the trees & lake below. 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.

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 that none could hold a candle to beautiful Walloon. We were all enchanted by the beautiful 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 the 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 :)
