I am currently teaching at the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. I have been going to Walloon since I was a small boy. I love the outdoors, especially sailing.
Douglas Woodhouse purchased this house in 1980
It was exactly as advertised. Everything we needed for a great long weekend. Close proximity to the water and so convenient to have the boat slip. It was a great porch to relax on. If we weren't on the boat, we were hanging out on the porch!
We were all pleased with the opportunity of using the Woodhouse cottage at Walloon Lake. We had nine people at the cottage from 39 to 77 years old but found the house met all our needs. The really close proximity of the little town with the Walloon Inn, The Barrel Back, a little coffee shop, well-equipped General Store, antique/consignment store, and multiple little shops made it so convenient and fun for all of us. Everything we could have needed was so close by.
The beach was such a short walk both for the swimming and the fire pits for nighttime. Renting kayaks was right there and my son was also able to trailor his boat up and use the dock that came with the cottage.
The fact that Petoskey, Charlevoix, Boyne and Harbor Springs were so close added an extra dimension.
Not personally having used VRBO before, I was a little concerned how everyone would feel about my choice. Everyone was delighted and it was a great way to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. There was enough room for everyone without being in each others space. The porch was my favorite place to sit and enjoy each others’ company and the weather. It has such a nice small town atmosphere. We were already talking about when we would do it again. (There were lots of beach things down the basement for people to use and the washing machine and dryer added a lot to the convenience.)
Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed our stay, what a great family friendly house, so much to do in the area. Walloon is fantastic, and the village has really made a comeback! Can't wait to return next year! Thank you.
