Property description

Our 'Summer of 2016' rental business has come to a close. If you are interested in booking for the 'Summer of 2017' drop us a note or give us a call.

Experience a beautiful summer vacation in a lovely home...up north...on the lake. Our home was originally built in the 1930s. It was completely restored and renovated in the 1990s. It is a simple white cottage with a green roof on the outside...and a beautiful cedar home with hardwood floors on the inside.

2400 square footage includes four bedrooms (master bedroom with queen-size bed, guest bedroom with queen-size Murphy Bed, and two additional bedrooms each with a double beds). Fold out coaches are located on the porch and in the family room.

Two full baths. Spacious great room with a fully equipped kitchen. Dining room with large Amish wood table that seats eight. Separate areas for TV, quiet reading, and entertaining offer lounging for all interests.

Our home sits on 150 feet of Crooked Lake waterfront. We are walking distance to the village of Conway, five miles north of Petoskey and five mile SE of Harbor Springs. We have a spacious, open front yard (that is lake side!) and a 65' x 43' full basketball court in our back yard (that's road side!). The road our house sits on wraps one mile around Crooked Lake and is a lovely walk.

The dock and basktball court are shared amenities with my brother's cottage next door. He also rents by the week in the summer. Check out his cottage through VRBO #412557
