Cute and cozy. Peaceful. Great location.
We had a great stay. We loved that there was everything we needed to get started. This cottage was clean and comfortable, peaceful and quiet It's definitely a place to relax after a day on the sleds. It's is close to all snowmobile trails. We will definitely stay again.
Pictures Might Oversell It
Great location, great view. But there wasn't as much room as I would've thought from the photos and ad. 5 men were too many for this cottage. The well water was a bit ripe, but you can get past that.
Overall The property and the location were excellent, the pictures really make the rooms seem larger than they are.
Crooked Lake Cottage stay Jan 2018
The cabin was large enough for four of us to stay. The original ad said it would sleep 6-8. The 5th thru 8 people would have to sleep in an unfinished basement on hideaway beds. The main draw back was the water smell. I believe a new well needs to be drilled or a good water filtration system needs to be installed. The view was great, right on the lake and very-very quiet. We were close enough to the snowmobile trails that we were looking for.
peaceful and quiet. did not like the house water at all
this could be a 5 star GEM with a little update. the water in the house is AWFUL very bad smell
we have stayed in many places with well water nothing smells like this water it stinks. we used bottled water for everything. the bed needs a new mattress very hard,we enjoyed the sunset we had bonfire going every other night my wife and i enjoyed the peaceful and quiet time we had. owner responds to any question within minutes we are not knocking the place down just telling the owner what it needs.
We had a wonderful weekend and stay. It was sad to leave, neither of us wanted to go back! Hopefully next time we can stay longer.
Thank you so much for sharing, Elizabeth. Every time I am out there, even if for a few hours, I never want to leave either! Thanks for staying, I hope to hear from you again next year!
We absolutely loved our stay! The lake was gorgeous, secluded, and not overpopulated. Exactly what we were looking for! The cabin was spacious and well stocked with supplies to get us started. It's located about halfway between Manistique and Munising, leaving about a 25 minute drive either way. Perfect! We were able to sit right next to the water and enjoy our campfire. It was such a beautiful and peaceful spot, I wanted to cry when we left. Next year we will stay longer! The only reason I didn't give this property a 5 star rating is because the beds were very firm, a little uncomfortable, and the lack of blinds or shears in the living room left us with a lack of privacy. If someone was sleeping on the futon out there, they'd wake up very early in the morning. We also wished we could have brought our dog as well but this particular property doesn't allow pets. Max the local neighborhood dog comes around a lot and gives free cuddles! He was so cute! We are already trying to plan another stay here next year! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Hi Misty! Thank you so much for sharing your stay. It sounds like you had a wonderful time. I love Max and Molly they always hang out and wait for belly rubs when I head out there! Your pooch is more than welcome next year!
Thanks again for staying, and sharing your stay review! Hope to hear from you again next year!
