About Jody & Harry Waite

My husband and I have owned property on Crooked lake and find it a beautiful place. We enjoy boating, fishing, and kayaking and would like to share the wonderful experience with others.

Jody & Harry Waite purchased this Cottage in 2016

Why Jody & Harry Waite chose Delton

We chose to invest in this property because it is a dream of ours to spend time on the lake and spend time in a low key, quiet, family atmosphere.

                                                          Nice cottage with comfortable furniture and plenty of room for two. Close to the lake, which is pretty and peaceful.

                                                          Quiet cozy cottage

                                                          Very cozy cottage right across from lake. Very quiet relaxing area. Good for couples who want a quiet getaway.

                                                          Value, excellent location, kayaks a bonus!

                                                          Allan M.

                                                          We stayed here for a week while visiting family in Kalamazoo. Our family ended up coming up 3 times to visit during the day because it was such a great location, just 30 minutes drive from KZOO!

                                                          The owners were great about contact and also helpful for little things we needed when we arrived, great customer service, nice family! The place has the basic cookware and amenities of a VRBO, blender for margaritas ( TIP:bring drinking water for better taste). The bonus was the kayaks ( 4 total). We took them out every day, so peaceful and beautiful to explore the lake. Also, you can rent a pontoon boat, conveniently outside the cottage, at a great rate. We watched the 4th of July boat parade and then had a memorable afternoon on the boat with the entire family: lunch in a quiet cove and a little bit of swimming near the island. Although we did not fish, we saw lots of them jumping and this lake would be perfect for it. It only seemed crowded with boats on the 4th, due to the holiday, but it was so much fun! We watched LOTS of fireworks right off the deck - all week long.

                                                          We appreciated the smart TVs to watch Netflix ( one in the bedroom and a really large one in the living room), plus a new foldout sofa, and a spare cot available so you could sleep 5. A/C in bedroom was nice, fans in other areas worked on hot days, so very comfortable temperature control. There is central heat in the winter. Lots of nice towels (big, fluffy) for the shower and the beach.

                                                          There is a major hiking trail up Norris road that is a short drive, very pretty and easy. We saw a fox! Bring insect repellent for the hike in the summer. At the cottage, however,we noted that we were not bit even once by mosquitos - you might have to clear some webs away on the deck in the morning because there are other critters outside that keep them at bay, but no bites! That's just amazing on a lake in July. Owners also provide citronella candles to use.

                                                          Parking and entry/exit was easy, resort was quiet. There is a large store in town of Delton that has most things you might need at a reasonable price. There were also lots of local restaurants that looked wonderful but we enjoyed the ability to do our own cooking in a great atmosphere.

                                                          We will definitely stay here when we visit our family in KZOO!

                                                          Thank you Allan for such a great review. We

                                                          haven't tried out the hiking trails but certainly will. Hope you are able to stay at our cottage again. It was nice to meet your family.

                                                          Very nice accommodations and wonderful owners.

                                                          Screen on door didn't work and some bedroom windows had no screens but over all very very nice place. Would recommend and come back

                                                          Thank you for staying in our cottage and we hope you vacation with us again.

                                                          We have ordered a new screen door, sorry we did not have it before your stay.

                                                          We did not realize the guest bedroom did not have a screen on the window. We will make sure either it is put back in, or another window air conditioner is added.
