We had a great time at Papa Bear on Crooked Lk. The kids fished off the dock, kayaked and went for a boat ride with me. We visited Clear Lake State Park to swim one day, and also used the beach on Croocked Lake a couple times. At night we sat around the fire and listened to owls, loons, and other wildlife under a star filled sky.
The house/cabin was plenty big enough for all of us. The common space down stairs was a favorite of the kids to watch TV at night. Having 3 bathrooms was a plus also.
The property manager was extremely responsive, and very helpful when I had questions.
Only downsides are no beach at cabin for young kids to play(which we knew about going in), and the dock is old and in need of repair.
I only gave 4 stars on cleanliness, because it was clean enough for me, but my wife thought it was a bit dusty, and was not a fan of the cobwebs that were in the corners. Other than that it was pretty clean.
All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone looking to have a relaxing time in northern Michigan!
Marc is very responsive to inquiries even during your stay. The property has everything you’d need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The serene lake is just the thing for a relaxing yet fun time. You have access to several boats and motors. There’s a hot tub and fire pit and a couple of grills. Marc has thought if it all!
Had a wonderful vacation. The house was perfect for our family. Would stay again. Only problem was the fire pit was not old people friendly to steep of a climb. Owner was always communicating all the time to make sure everything was there and working. We made lots of memories thanks
Thanks for your input! Yes, I am in the process to putting stepping platforms in for all of the houses. Also, 2 of the 3 docks are in the process of being replaced.
Always room for improvements!
Solitude on Crooked Lake
Wonderful fully equipped home on crooked lake. Access to all the amenities and equipment you need to enjoy a week on this quiet gorgeous northern Michigan lake. Bring your rod and reel and leave the rest behind. Excellent communication with the owner. Loved our time by the lake
Thanks Ben, communication is key to a good experience. We were in Boston recently for our son graduation from Harvard and rented a Home Away house. There were some initial issues, but the owner was quick to respond.
The thing to remember is that you are renting a someone's home, not a room. There are plus's and minus's to both, but give me a lake front rental home any time! A quick response is the difference and key to an enjoyable experience.
Thanks again hope to see you again in the near future!
camping in woods
some furniture needs updating sharing boats with other cabins was a problem not too handy if have problems walking unable to walk down hill to lake master bedrm needs ac lovely location beach nearby ( clear Lake) was nice
Pleasant, relaxing, quiet
Our family spent a week here and had a very nice time. Marc was very helpful, and the lake was crystal clear and clean. Tall pine trees, a big deck, a dock out in the water, and plenty of kayaks made this a very relaxing spot. Had a couple of loons on the lake, plus fish, crayfish, and turtles.
