Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 5, 2016
Cottage B - Newly Remodeled Family Friendly Cottage Sleeps 6-8

Leave your cares at home and bring your family for some fun and relaxation. This family friendly cottage has been newly remodeled and sleeps 6-8. We provide a variety of amenities. All you have to do is just relax and enjoy lake life. It has 40 ft. of sandy beach with raft and pier. We provide Wi-Fi, AC, bedding and towels, full kitchen, grill and outdoor seating, flat screen with cable, indoor games and wood for the fire pit.

Early mornings on the lake are peaceful. Have a cup of coffee on the deck, do yoga on the beach or fish off the end of the pier. Slow down and take in the view.

Enjoy an evening after a long day in the sun by the fire pit or just take a stroll around the lake and stop at the ice cream shop. Jump in the car and see a movie at the old fashion drive-in. If you are looking for a night out, visit the casino or do a little site-seeing and shopping along the beaches of Lake Michigan in St. Joseph. You can bring your clubs and work on your game at the local golf course. Boat and jet-skis can be rented at the nearby marina.

Come and make some memories! Dogs welcome.

This cottage is located behind Cottage A but only steps off the sandy beach. You still have full use of yard, deck and seating, grill and fire pit.

Great Lakefront Property, Almost Great House

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed out time at the property. Heather was very responsive and helpful with our late evening arrival. The property itself was wonderful, and our kids couldn't get enough of playing in the lake and on the beach.

The only "problems" were that it seemed too many beds were put in a tight space, and the tap water was absolutely terrible. The bedrooms are pretty cramped. With all the beds in the 2nd bedroom, it seemed that the 3rd may be better used as a laundry room (although, to be fair, there is a laundry mat nearly walking distance up the road). The shower was also very dated and could seemingly be pretty easily updated and enlarged.

The water in the lake was beutiful. The water in the house, unfortuntely, was really bad. We understand that well water at a lake isn't city water. We live in the country and have a well with the same sulfur water. Our water is naturally very similar to the water we found at this property, and is made nearly ideal by a relatively inexpensive carbon filter.

The beauty and serenity of the lake (and the extent to which the kids enjoyed it) make these small sacrifices worthwhile, but a little work could easily make this a "5-star" property in our minds.

Very relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great; it was very clean, and Heather really made us feel like we could feel "at home". Heather was super responsive, flexible, and helpful throughout the rental process. The rates are also really reasonable for what you get (house, fire pit, row boat, kayaks, grill, etc.). I highly recommend this property to any one planning a stay in the area or looking for a little summer getaway.

We had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great, very clean and well stocked with the essentials with a nice open floor plan in the comfortable living room and kitchen area. We enjoyed a great time there and can't wait to return next year. The owner was very nice and was available for any questions before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time. When first arriving Heather the owner made us feel at ease and at home. Everything was provided towels, linens, kitchen items and even games and movies for the kids. We had a total of eight people and no one was stepping on each others toes. The beach and water were beautiful. We kayaked and took out the row boat which were also provided. We ended up renting a pontoon boat for a couple days which we could dock right at the house. We really enjoyed our stay and the property and can't wait to go back.

Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our week on Big Crooked Lake was delightful. The sandy beach front was perfect for our family of five. We all enjoyed the Kayaks that came with the cottage, along with the ice cream store, just a short walk away. The cottage provided all the comfort of home, with

ampe sleeping and dining arrangements. Heather was a very easy to reach and a pleasure to deal with.
