2 story cottage, sleeps 10, 2 bath, lakefront
Newly renovated waterfront cottage with a 2 story deck is ideally located on Crooked Lake in a unique, park like community called Watersedge Resort. The 4 bedroom, 2 full bath cottage is located on 450 feet of waterfront, with a sandy bottom beach. The cottage is an all-season chalet which includes water sports, bike trails, skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, shopping and dinning. The one-of-a-kind shallow, sandy bottom beach stretches out more than 250 feet in less than waist deep water – Great water fun for the family. This combination of beach and park-like atmosphere makes this location the most desirable on Crooked Lake.
Fall is a special time of year when the trees come alive with vibrant colors. Jump on the paved bike trail across the road that connects Alanson to Petoskey to Charlevoix. You’re only a 6 mile bike ride to the Petoskey State Park.
Many areas to view the color changes are great, but there is nothing as commanding as the Tunnel of Trees, along the shore of Lake Michigan. This area is just north of Harbor Springs about 15 minutes from your doorstep.
The park-like property also features a private marina, with two slips available for your watercrafts of up to 26 feet. The grounds included is a volleyball court, basketball court, horseshoe pit, multiple fire pits and most of all, a tranquil setting for relaxing on a wooden swing, to watch the boats go by, read a novel or watch the fantastic sunrises or sunsets from the point.
Take a trip through the Inland Waterway on your boat or rent one from the two marinas less than 2 miles away. Crooked Lake is connected to Lake Huron by traveling through Burt Lake and Mullet Lake. It is a beautiful way to spend a sunny summer day.
Skiing and snowmobiling makes this the Midwest's Premier Winter Destination, with trails just waiting to be ridden. The ski resorts of Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob are only about 10 minutes from your cottage. The snowmobile trails are right out your door! Ice skating, sledding sleigh rides and ice fishing are also just a sampling of what is in store for you during your dream vacation.
Spring time bring out colorful blooms and the 21 championship golf courses open for the avid golfer, which are all within 25 miles of the resort. Hikers will also enjoy this time of the year, for its many trails and paths are waiting to be explored once again. Do not forget to visit the mighty Mackinaw Bridge and Island. It is only about 30 minutes from the resort.
With all the area has to offer with its unique shops, boutiques and art galleries located in Petoskey's Gas Light District and Harbor Springs, shopping should definitely be on your list of things to do. You may also want to see if Lady Luck is with you at the 'new and ultimate' Odawa Casino in town.

Great, great and great!
Just got home from a great 4 day mini vacation. The house was very cozy and clean! Great location to Boyne Highlands and downtown Petoskey. The best thing are the snowmobile trails are only a hop, skip and a jump away! We will definitely be booking again.
Looking forward to having you and your family back next year.
Everything we needed.
The cottage was perfect for our needs. Skiing at Boyne and Nubs was nearby. Snow shoeing on Crooked Lake. Beds were comfortable and we had everything we needed for a relaxing stay.
We are glad you enjoyed your Holiday Vacation at our cottage and thank you for your positive review.
Beautiful location and the perfect setup for us.
We had a great time at this location. We were only there for two nights but they were two good nights. We met our friends there and had a total of four adults and four kids between the ages of 4 and 8. The setup was perfect. Everybody had enough room, even inside when the weather didn’t cooperate. The location is great, right on Crooked Lake and short drives to Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Harbor Springs. We plan on going back next year.
Great family vacation!
The cottage was obviously newly remodeled, very tastefully done. Sandy beach, boat slip, basketball court, and fire pits were enjoyed by family. Shallow waters made it a great place for kids and easy to get out in kayaks and paddle board. The kitchen was well equipped.
Only suggestion is to add some hooks in the upstairs bathroom. We would definitely come back again.
Thanks for the review and the suggestion, we will add some hooks in the bathroom upstairs. Excellent suggestion
Look forward to having your family back in the future.

Our week at Crooked Lake couldn't have been better. We rented 2 cottages in this complex. The area was wonderful, sandy beach, fire pit, beach chairs, horse shoes, volleyball, wooden swing, large grassy area for kids to play, ample parking. The water was about thigh deep for quite a ways out, worked out well for playing in the water. We also rented standup paddle boards and a ski boat from Ryde Marine - about 2 miles away. Having very easy access to the walking/bike trail was wonderful. Had several runners & bikers in our group.
Loved the cottage. The covered deck and very large picnic table were awesome. Beds were very comfortable, good grade of sheets. Nicely decorated and comfy. Kevin was very responsive to any inquires, even mailed a forgotten item. We will definitley keep this on our list of places for future trips
Adorable cabin with great amenities. Bike paths, walking paths, fishery near by. Bakery in walking distance, sandy beach, spot to dock your boat, fire pit, beautiful sunsets. Not far from down town petosky.Highly recommended!
On beautiful Crooked Lake part of Michigan's Inland Waterway. The Inland Waterway connects Lake Huron to Mullet Lake, Burt Lake, Crooked Lake and Pickerel Lake. A beautiful boating experience. Take advantage of the near by bike path across the road that travels through Petoskey down to Charlevoix.
