We love dogs and are glad to have them as guests too! However, they must be completely potty trained well behaved,and friendly. They also must be supervised and or be on a leash at all times! PLEASE! NO DOGS on the furniture or beds. Also if you go for a day trip, please take your friend with you or make proper arrangements for their care. There is to be no pets left unattended in the house! They also may NOT be left on a leash/chain while you are away. The neighbors frown upon this, as barking can be annoying!! Please pick up after your friend goes potty.It's only right don't you agree!!...moreless

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We have lived in Kalkaska for the past 26 years.I (Teresa) was even born in the Kalkaska hospital. Therefore, I am a true native! My husband Rick however, is a' transplant' from Plymouth Mi. He moved here to marry me! After this many years here, he is now considered a " Local-Yoko" as well. We have two children. Our son is 24, and our daughter is 15 yrs. old. We have lived out here at Crawford Lake for 25 years now.We love it here and this is why we purchased our lake front cottage in June of 2012. The cottage is just across the lake from our primary home. This makes it perfect for our new venture of renting our cottage as a vacation get away /retreat. Again, we love Crawford Lake so much, as well as the surrounding area , so we thought why not share it with others! So, that's what we did!! We are loving meeting new people and making new friends. Our guests have been wonderful and we are grateful to have had them stay with us. So far, they love it here as much as we do!
Why the Owner Chose Kalkaska, MI, USA:
What attracted us to the area is the fact that you have access to so many fun and exciting out door activities. There is skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing,dirt-biking, four-wheeling, hiking, boating, swimming, water-skiing, fishing, golf;and the list goes on! It is just so very peaceful and beautiful . The scenery and wildlife are breathtaking, and all you have to do is look out the window! Lastly, we love this location because it is only 20 minutes from Traverse City, Torch Lake and the casinos. Perfect!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
AHH!... The View . Sitting on the deck or dock having a drink and watching the sun set over the lake and trees will leave you speechless. The fall colors over the lake reminds us of being in the smokey mountains mostly due to the fact that this lake is not jam- packed with homes one after the other. The south end of the lake has no homes, just all cedar trees. You may even catch site of the bald eagles that nest on the south end of the lake!
