About Paul

I am going into my 7th season of running a vrbo property. I make myself available for my guests and feel that communication with potential guests is crutial to answering any and all questions to make sure that the roperty is a good fit.

Why Paul chose Petoskey

Currently booking forthe rest of 2018 & 19 summmers. For the 2017 season I saw a drastic change in the trend of bookings! We had 7 or 8 weeks booked a year or so. Prior to that it had seemed most of our booking came around or after the new year. Thank you to all of our guests that have stayed and enjoyed there time in the Petoskey area and on the lake, I feel lucky to have had many guests that have taken great care of our place while having a great time . I enjoy most everything that people love to come to this area for, I've lived here for 20years full time and able to have as much or as little imput for people looking for suggestions on activities, dinning, boat/bike/ water toy rentals etc.

What makes this house unique

VRBO ( for some reason???) Is making it very hard to communicate with potential guests, by not providing me as an owner with emails or phone numbers if the potential guests provide them unless we book them. I would prefer to make myself available to answer questions prior to booking to make sure it is a good fit for you, therefore I must spell my phone number out this way so you may call me directly to ask questions first if you want. Two, three, one, three, three, zero, three,eight, four, three.

Our friends and family loved it. We were not able to go this year.

Unfortunately, my husband and I were not able to join our friends and family at Walloon Lake. They all had a fantastic time, and we look forward eagerly to next year.

Beautiful location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Very relaxing. We had 6 adults and 3 children 4 and under. Plenty of room. The area is so beautiful and peaceful. Thankful that my nephew got married here otherwise we would never have seen this part of the country.

Great property in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two weeks on beautiful Walloon Lake. Paul and Tracy have an awesome property in a great location. Our large family, with many children of different ages, all had a fabulous time on the lake, at the house and in nearby cities. The house is very comfortable, clean and well-loved. The common spaces were large and plentiful, which made spending time together easy and enjoyable. The kitchen was great and the porch was amazing. We enjoyed the bonfire and the yard every day. Although there is a road out front, we found it a bonus not a negative. We enjoyed daily walks along it and met several neighbors. Traffic was light and careful and we enjoyed the community feeling of walkers, joggers and cyclists. Most importantly, we felt very lucky to have Paul's advice and help over the course of the two weeks. We can't wait to return!

Heaven on Lake Walloon

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Paul, made an excellent first impression by communicating promptly by email and phone. He has lived in the home, is very familiar with Lake Walloon, and answered all our questions, up to and during our stay. The house was very clean, attractive, and homey, with thoughtful touches that reflected attention to our comfort. When a shower head broke early on, Paul fixed it that day. One caveat: when showering in the second floor bathroom, we had to make sure no one flushed the toilet in the rest of the house, or the shower would turn painfully hot.

There was plenty of room for three couples, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus a large second floor room that could accommodate visitors, if needed. Each bedroom is adjacent to a separate common area, making it possible for late-nighters or early risers to be up and about without disturbing others. We had all the equipment we needed for cooking and grilling. The large front porch with rockers allowed all of us to sit and relax or eat at the picnic table, and enjoy the view of the lake. We appreciated not having to climb steps to get to the lake, which was easily accessible. There is a road between the home and the lake, but for adults the traffic is negligible. We enjoyed taking long walks or biking on the road around the lake. On two nights, we took our pontoon boat across the lake to Walloon Village to eat dinner. Some of us enjoyed an afternoon biking and looking for Petoskey stones on Lake Charlevoix. I enjoyed kayaking almost every day on the lake, when it wasn't too windy. The fire pit was a delightful way to end the evening. Paul connected us to boat rentals, so that our pontoon boat and kayak were at the dock when we arrived. We had a wonderful time, and will be back next year. Thanks, Paul!

Hitched at the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 15!! The bedrooms were comfortable and the family room area on the second floor was great for grandkids slumber parties and movie watching.

Paul was a wonderful "land lord" who gave us very helpful information on the area and things to see and do. He was easily accessable.

The thing I would fix is the sink drain and definitely add a garbage disposal.

It was a perfect week celebrating our youngest sons marriage at The Inn At Bay Harbor.

Thank you for sharing such a treasure!!!
