4 Bedroom And 2 Bath Cottage On Crooked Lake With Beach and Boat Docks

One of six privately owned cottages in a unique, park-like community called Waters Edge on Crooked Lake. This newly remodeled cottage has tons of charm and is very well maintained. The pine beam ceilings create a cozy yet open feel. It is perfect for one or two families and great for all seasons!

Immaculate cottage is 4 bedroom and 2 bath, fully stocked kitchen makes this cottage feel like your home away from home. Maximum of 8 persons allowed.

450 feet of lake frontage and half is a sandy beach. Shallow and sandy bottom water makes for the best and safest swimming on crooked lake. Relax and kick back in the evening by roasting marshmallows from one of the multiple bonfire pits.

Also, new in 2013- the extended Little Traverse Wheelway bike trail can be accessed just across the street from our cottage. Enjoy a great bike ride to Petoskey or the cute town of Alanson, just 3 miles north.

If you prefer a walk, there is a one mile walkway past the historic homes of Crooked Lake, which begins just down the street from the cottage. Comfortable resort also includes volleyball, small basketball court, and horseshoes. You can really relax here!

Boat slip in private marina included with cottage rental. Jet skis can be anchored in shallow water off the beach. Enjoy partial views of the lake from the deck of the cottage which sits back back approximately 50 feet from the lake.

Lots of restaurants, golfing, and shopping close by-and only minutes from Boyne highlands and Nubs Nob. The Odawa Casino is only 15 minutes from cottage and Mackinac Island only 35 miles away. A great location!

The beach and park-like setting with boat docking makes this a unique vacation property. If you need more space, we also own property #90506. Call now to reserve this cozy cottage only seven miles from Petoskey and nine miles from Harbor springs!

Maximum 8 persons. No pets, no smoking.

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was very clean and decorated very well, you could tell all was new. Very comfortable beds, pillows could be more fluffy. We had a ladies weekend and the accommodations were just perfect for the 6 of us. It is easily accessible to Harbor Springs, Petoskey, & Mackinac City. Thank You for taking pride in your cottage.

Wonderful Stay at Crooked Lake Rental

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this beautifully renovated cottage on Crooked Lake. We have stayed at this cottage before and the renovations they made are incredible it's a totally different cottage! They restructured the stairs so it's safer for children. All the furniture is new and modern as is the kitchen including a dishwasher! The bathroom renovations are lovely as well. All in all a wonderful stay at what feels like a brand new cottage we look forward to staying here again next year!

Cute, Cozy and Clean Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time at this cottage even with the weather being a little cold for early June. However, we found plenty of other things to do in Petoskey and Mackinac Island as they are very short drives. I was really impressed with the cleanliness and cute interior of the cottage. We were comfortable and felt right at home. The kids love it!!!

A beautifully decorated & functional cottage close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about our stay at the cottage on Crooked Lake! This rental has obviously been remodeled very recently and they did it beautifully! The kitchen and living area is very functional. With the kitchen, breakfast bar, dining table & living area all in one space, it allows everyone to be together no matter what you are doing {relaxing watching tv, cooking in the kitchen and/or playing a game at the plenty big dining table}. We had 6 guests total for our long weekend away {4 adults + 2 children} and we found the space to be plenty big. I could see 8 adults getting tight, but that's when you head to the great outdoors and take in the beauty around you! The drive to Petosky & Harbor Springs is a quick one, and to Boyne is just a few minutes longer. Close enough to the hill to take in some runs in the morning, head back to the cottage for lunch/relaxation, and then back to the hill for night runs. And the Mackinac Bridge is not too far of a drive if you need a 1/2 day trip for something different. We will definitely be staying here again in the future! Thanks to the owners for such a wonderful place to say.

And ps.. If you stay at this cottage and there is still the dual sledding runs on the snow mound next to the cottage...You can thank our husbands for that! :-)
