Family Ski Weekend
The Hewitt Cottage is a small but well-appointed outbuilding next to Crooked Lake. It was a perfect basecamp for our small family of three, visiting Boyne Highlands over Presidents Day Weekend. The slopes were an easy 5 min drive. All the furnishings and supplies at the cottage seemed new and the owners provided all the info we needed by email ahead of time. I echo a previous reviewer's suggestion to use "Conway" as the city, instead of Petoskey. Petoskey will get you there through Mapquest, but other map programs (e.g., Bing, Google, etc.) will take you to the wrong place. The only negative was that the ladder going up to the loft bed area was a little precarious. It would be better if the top of the ladder were connected more firmly to the wall. Our timid ten year old thought twice before clambering up the first few times. I wouldn't call it unsafe, just a little wobbly. We loved it and will likely be back for another trip!! This would be a beautiful summer destination too.
