The house is newly remolded 3 bedroom 1 1/2 bath home is located in the village of Walloon lake, MI. Nestled 100 yards off beautiful Walloon lake, where the sunrise and sunsets are some of the most adored in all of Northern Michigan. The house allows you to get away from the busy everyday life and enjoy warm summer days and cool nights in the small friendly village of Walloon Lake.

The house offers public lake and dock access less than a minute walk away where you can enjoy the water and nice Caribbean like sandy beach. A full front porch, large spacious back patio and nicely landscape yard offers many family/friend gathering opportunities. The front and back yards offer plenty of shade as well as a good bit of sunshine. A very short walk to the newly restored Walloon Lake Village with several dining and shopping options.

“Amazing Summer Vacation”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2016

My husband and I found this gem when looking for an "Up North" summer vacation location. I had never heard of Walloon Lake and instantly fell in love with the village, lake, and house. We brought our almost three year old along and she is still talking about the Yellow House. The house is in a great location. Only a 2 minute walk to the a lake view and a 5 minute walk to the beach, playground, marina, general store, restaurant, and more. There is air conditioning on the main floor and plenty of fans to help circulate air upstairs for the bedrooms and full bath. The front porch was a great place to enjoy morning coffee and breathe in the fresh Walloon air. If you are looking for day trips or larger cities to visit, The house is 10 minutes from Petoskey (chain grocery store, casino, restaurants, Stare Park) and Boyne City (skiing and entertainment) and 30 minutes or so to Charlevoix (amazing boats, drawbridge, Lake Michigan access). If finances allow, I would strongly suggest renting a boat (Tommy's Marina is short walk from the house) for a day and cruising around the lake. If you're lucky, (like we were) maybe a kind neighbor may even offer a guided tour!

We loved this adorable cottage! It has an open airy floorplan. We had all the creature comforts we needed during our stay. The house is well maintained, nicely decorated & comfortably furnished. The porch is big & wonderful to kick back with a glass of wine & relax. Walloon Lake is breath taking! The water is clear, caribbean blue, & refreshing! The beach, playground & dock are all an easy walk! We loved the Village of Walloon Lake from Johan's bakery w/ their famous custard filled doughnuts, bagels & coffee! To the new Barrel Back restaurant across the street which was superb & offered amazing lake views dining al fresco! The general store next door to Johan's was well stocked with delicious sandwiches & ice cream! We highly recommend BC Pizza in Boyne City with a play place for kids & The Landings restaurant next to the Ironton Ferry on Lake Charlevoix. Our hosts were so welcoming & warm! We look forward to our next visit!

Owner's reply: Laura, Thank you very much for your kind words. We are excited that you and your family enjoyed the cottage and look forward to your 2014 return. Scott

“Great Vacation”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2011

What a wonderful cottage! We really enjoyed the location for our outings in Michigan. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. It had everything you would need in a home-away-from-home. Very nice television - we watched movies every night. I would recommend this cottage to anyone vacationing in this area. I hope we can return next year.
