This lakefront cottage is located on 265 acre Crooked Lake in Clare County. It has everything Michigan has to offer within a reasonable distance for an enjoyable family vacation or romantic weekend. There are three bedrooms. The Master has a full bath and king bed. Second bedroom has a double and the third is furnished with a Queen bed. A roll-away single bed is also available. A second full bath between second and third bedrooms. Sleeps 7 to 8 with a fully equipped kitchen and beautiful, cozy living room. The bright, sunny kitchen faces the lake with a sliding door to the deck. The deck is 15 feet by 27 feet on lake side complete with 2 tables and chairs, lawn chairs and Gas BBQ Grill (propane included.) A smaller deck is down by the water to relax and watch the boats go by. We have a dock if you would like to bring a boat! A paddleboat is available for renter's use. There is also a middle deck with fire pit (wood included) to wind down after a busy day on the water. In the evening, enjoy gorgeous sunsets. We have an assortment of bikes for our guests to use to explore the surrounding trails. The cottage is located 10 miles from Clare, the gateway to the North! In Clare, you will find several businesses that you can enjoy on a drive through the Amish countryside. Clare also has a theater with current movies being shown on Tuesday through Sunday at 7 PM and 9 PM for $5.00 a person! Downtown Clare is home to the original Cops and Donuts Bakery. Besides the delicious donuts, breads and pastries, they also have a restaurant for sandwiches etc., and they also sell souvenirs. In Mt. Pleasant, a 30 minute drive will bring you to the Soaring Eagle Casino. You can try your luck there and enjoy a fantastic meal or take in the Soaring Eagle Indoor Water Park. We have several golf courses in the area also. Snow Snake Zip Line in Harrison is approximately 30 minutes to the North of the cottage if you are feeling adventurous. Reservations are required. Right on Crooked Lake is a spot where you can rent a pontoon or kayaks. The Lakeside Bar and Grill and the Lake Restaurant can be found here in Lake for a meal out and last year The Whistle Stop opened for business serving broasted chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers and ice cream! Whatever you plan to do on your vacation, your time spent on Crooked Lake will be memorable!

Amazing location and hosts!
Beautiful view of the lake, especially at night. My family visited last weekend and brought our boat for lake activities. Everything about this place was very well thought out - Gated and locking porch to keep the small ones safe, several patios to chill on, vhs and movies (lots of classic movies) to watch, board games and cards all provided. The lake itself is really beautiful and clear. I would highly recommend renting this one! I hope to visit again soon.
What a lovely review William. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. Next time you'll have to stay longer. It was a pleasure having you and your family. We love to see our guests having fun! Hope to see you again.

If you want to enjoy sitting on the deck overlooking a lovely lake, this is ideal. The cottage is spotless, the beds are comfortable, and the owners helpful. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Thank you so much for your kind words. The best compliment I can receive is hearing our guests say how clean and comfortable our cottage is. Means a lot. Hope to see you next year!!

We rented the cottage for two weeks and hosted family for a portion of that time. Everyone enjoyed the peaceful environment of this lakefront property. A welcoming patio deck enabled family to share meals and good conversation together. The cottage was comfortable and very clean. The property was exactly as it was posted on HomeAway. Henry and Lois, owners, were welcoming and responsive to our needs. We would recommend this property on beautiful Crooked Lake.

Dear Dick and Joyce,
Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you at our cottage on Crooked Lake. We are so glad that you had a good time with your family. Hoping you will consider our cottage when planning your next vacation.
Lois Aumaugher, Owner
The property was meticulously clean, fresh and very comfortable. We loved the half-way point fire pit patio (also a nice resting point for older out of shape folks like me). We rented a pontoon boat for a day and the lake was incredibly refreshing. I would certainly recommend for any group of six to eight.
Dear Tom and Cindy,
Thank you so much for your kind review. We strive to offer a comfortable, clean cottage for our guests to get away from it all and enjoy a relaxing few days on Crooked Lake. It was a pleasure meeting you and hope you will consider our cottage for your future vacation plans.
Great vacation spot to enjoy with grandchildren.
Cottage set up was perfect for making memories with our grandchildren. Hank and Lois were very welcoming to all of us and made sure we had everything we needed.
We enjoyed your family immensely! Loved the energy that young folks bring. A mere thank you for washing all the linens and leaving the cottage spotless, sure doesn't express my gratitude. Hope you make our Crooked Lake cottage an annual vacation.
