Nice cottage, convenient location
We stayed for a week. The property description & photos were accurate. The place was clean and reasonably maintained for the most part, but we'd suggest oiling some bedroom door hinges to reduce squeaking and leaving guests a list of what materials can actually be recycled in the bin provided. The owner was pleasant and greeted us in person upon arrival. Stove & dishes provided are sufficient for a small family, allowing us to reduce costs by cooking for ourselves rather than eating out every meal. There's a 24-hour Meijer within a couple miles of the cottage, so shopping was easy. Bear River Creek park is within easy walking distance and provides nice path to the Marina. Other things we visited with our toddler: beaches on Walloon Lake & in Petoskey State Park, Pond Hill Farm, Castle Farms, local playground in the Marina, waterfront in Charlevoix, downtown Petoskey. We had a good time for pretty low cost.
