About Kirk Duncan

Watervale and Duncan Cottages was originally an old logging camp. Arthur Kraft built 8 cottages on the property starting with Hum Cottage in 1924 from a Sears Kit. These cottages are now known as Duncan Cottages, run by the daughter and grandchildren of Arthur Kraft.

Kirk Duncan purchased this cottage in 1924

Why Kirk Duncan chose Arcadia

The property has been in the family for generations. It has been a family resort since 1917.

The property is on Lower Herring Lake and Lake Michigan, beautiful scenery, amazing hikes, tennis courts, water sports, biking and so many other activities. The family based resort offers traditions at Watervale such as Bingo, Wednesday night BBQ with hay rides, and beach fires on the Lake Michigan.

What makes this cottage unique

We don't know of any other places where you have access to two beautiful lakes and hikes out your back door.
