About William Day
We currently live in Petoskey and recently had the opportunity to purchase this wonderful property on Pickerel Lake where our son and daughter-in-law got married on. Since we only live 20 miles away, we will be able to provide you with any assistance you may need during your stay in a timely manner.
William Day purchased this House in 2013
Why William Day chose Alanson
This is a great central location that can serve as your home base for all of the wonderful recreational opportunities that Northern Michigan has to offer. Pickerel Lake is the quietest lake of the four inland lakes that connects to the Historic Inland Waterway which eventually leads to Lake Huron. It is an all-sports lake with great fishing and a public boat launch and sand beach and recreation area.
What makes this House unique
A quiet and peaceful retreat that is close to everything that makes Northern Michigan the place to vacation! Great fishing and boating on the Inland Waterway. Great sandy beach and recreational facilities at Camp Petosega just across the lake free to the public. Award winning area Golf Courses. Close to Petoskey & Mackinac Island Ferry. Great biking trails. Shopping and Casino in Petoskey.

Perfect place for our family vacation, nice lake, very peaceful. Great place to relax if you want to stay put, but also close to the many recreational opportunities in the area.
Thanks again Paul. We always enjoy hosting your family and look forward to your return again next year.

A Relaxing Week With the Family
My family and I truly enjoyed our stay on Pickerel Lake. Bill and Gerry were wonderful hosts. Both of them were there to greet us and walk us around the house and property when we arrived. The house and property are well maintained and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. There was a gas grill outside along with firewood for our use. They even set up a Pack n Play for our 1 year old son to sleep in. You can tell Bill and Gerry put a lot of thought into making sure their guests feel at home. The part of the lake we were on was very quiet, did not get a lot of boat traffic and has a wonderful view. Our four year old daughter enjoyed swimming in the lake all week. The lake is shallow and sandy a long ways out so it is great for younger kids to swim in. We would definitely stay here again!
Dear Craig Jamie and family:
Thank you for taking the time to give us a positive review.
Gerry and I are always very pleased when we hear that folks enjoyed their stay.
We strive to provide a clean and comfortable accommodation that we would want to have if we were the travelers.
Continued good health and happiness to you all.
Bill & Gerry
Relaxing at the Day's
Overall, we had a great time. The cabin is well furnished and comfortable. They've added railings to the porch and strips so you can tell where the steps end for added safety. We had a great time relaxing, fishing, exploring. The cabin is in a good location to spend a day sightseeing across the bridge and still getting back at a reasonable time.
Would we plan another stay, you bet we would.
Thank you for taking the time wrte a review for us. We are glad to hear that you and your wife had an enjoyable stay at our lake house and hope that we see you again next year.
My family and I had a wonderful week on Pickerel Lake. The home was very clean and well kept with plenty of space. The lake is beautiful and this shallow, sandy, and protected portion of the lake is great for small children. We look forward to staying here again.
My family (including dogs) and I had a fantastic time during our vacation on Pickerel Lake. Bill and Gerry (Geraldine) meet us at the property, very nice people. The house was even better than the pictures and furnished with everything you need. The lake is beautiful! Sand bottom, clear water and somewhat secluded, quiet area. We really didn't want to leave....but will look forward to coming back again!
Thank you! Gerry & I enjoyed meeting and talking to you, Steve & Allie (and the dogs) and hope to see you again. You were very thoughtful guests. Good luck in school Allie and enjoy those fish you caught Steve.

Great time was had by everyone!
Very well maintained property. Bill and Gerry are wonderful and gracious hosts and do everything to make sure that everyone has a great time. The Lake is awesome! The dogs had a great time playing in the water and the dock is nice and sturdy for docking the boat. Wonderful yard, and the clothes line was a great thing to have for wet towels.
Thank you Bill and Gerry for a wonderful week!
Dear Lori & Family:
Gerry & I are always pleased when our guests enjoy their stay. We do try to make sure that we do what we can to make that happen. Thanks for taking the time to let us know and we hope to see you again. We would like to post your son-in-laws picture with his trophy walleye catch on our site if he wouldn't mind. If so, please e-mail us a picture.
