Lake (Lake Louise) about 45 minutes south of Petoskey, Michigan. We
are 30 minutes drive to Gaylord and Boyne City and about an hour’s

private sandy beach front with dock, diving board, raft, air

or biking trails minutes from the door provide endless adventure for
all members of the family.
Two separate indoor areas provide room to spread out on a rainy day. The spacious living area in the house comes equipped with TV and VCR, games and books, even an indoor hammock space. The barn loft has a ping pong and pool table, puppet theater, games, books for all ages, couches and chairs. A hot tub is part of the package and Lake Louise is renowned for its marvelous swimming and fishing. A public boat launch is located
on the lake should you want to bring your motorized boat for water skiing or fishing. The house is fully equipped for your stay with towels (bring your own beach towels), linens, dishes…. Just bring your clothes and food and have a week of fun. We are interested in
finding renters who will enjoy and care for this marvelous cottage as much as we do. Perfect location for color tour rentals.
