This spacious Crooked Lake waterfront home has it all. Over 5000 sq. ft. of living space, 5+ bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and 100 ft. waterfront. Fantastic open concept kitchen with stainless steel appliances and chef range comes fully stocked. Multiple dining areas with both an indoor and outdoor dining room table big enough for 10-12 people. It also contains a family room, sun room, game room, exercise room, and walk-in sauna.
Huge multi-level decks perfect for views of Crooked Lake with balconies off both lakeside bedrooms. Located directly across from Oden Island Nature Preserve with excellent kayaking into Pickerel Lake and Crooked River. Crooked Lake is on the "Chain-of-Lakes" and it is possible to boat to Burt Lake, Mullet Lake, and out to Lake Huron through rivers and locks.
A dock is available to park your boat when coming to stay. Water depth at the end of the dock is about 3 feet, depending on rain fall and the locks that control depth. Enjoy swimming in the warm water since this shallow lake heats up early when compared with deeper local lakes or the Great Lakes. Pull your chairs up to the break-wall and watch the kids or grand kids play in the water. The water is shallow and just a couple steps down from the lawn. The lake bottom here has no rocks or weeds, but does have clay in sections. Dock will always be in the water between Memorial Day and Labor Day each year, possibly also earlier or later in the year depending on weather.
Located 15 minutes from Downtown Petoskey and 20 minutes from Boyne Highlands or Nubs Nob. Big enough for multiple familes, this house can easily save you thousands compared with hotel rooms at nearby resorts. For winter guests, just park in the garage and don't worry about scraping your cars from snow and ice.
As you can see from the picture of the outside, this home has two sides which are connected with a short, wide hall. Upstairs on one side has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms, including the master bedroom and bathroom, a room with a queen and a crib, another room with a queen, as well as another full bath. Downstairs you will find the kitchen, two dining spaces, a living room and a family room with a wood burning fireplace and large TV. The other side of the house has a great room on the main floor that is large enough to fit two full sized couches, an armchair, a TV with XBox 360, and a ping pong table with plenty of space to move around. Upstairs you will find the bedroom with 5 twins, as well as the exercise room and sauna. All rooms have 500 count cotton sheets, towels, and soap and shampoo will make your stay easier.
2 sets of washers and dryers. In addition, the garage has an extra oven, fridge and freezer to prevent having to keep extra food in coolers and to constantly buy ice.
We also have 2 medium kayaks on site with life jackets. In addition, a new gas grill for 2018.
Air conditioning units are in ALL bedrooms and the exercise room (newly added for 2019!). The main living spaces have ceiling fans, oscillating fans and/or box fans.
Our family has an F1b Goldendoodle that is in the home with us on occasion. While this is a hypoallergenic breed of dog that does not upset the pet allergies of the homeowners, and the home is thoroughly cleaned between guests, we want potential guests to be aware in the event you may still have concerns.
