Adorable cottage on golf course
This was a great cottage situated in the back of a golf course community. It was quiet, and except for the kitchen area, the layout is very roomy and was perfect for 6 people. The beds were comfy, 3 full baths, porches in front and back. The upstairs was a little stuffy in the warm weather and could use some fans. This unit is located across the street from Bay Harbor, so you have to drive to main building and pool, etc.

3/5 Okay

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Very nice, but not worth the money for us.
The cottages are nice, ours was at the end of the small block so not really lakeside as listed or shown. Both Queen bedrooms small and not marriott mattresses, so the comfort was so so. The property is beautiful but it just wasn’t worth the money for the two bedroom “lakeside” Would instead go stay 15 minutes away at Boyne Mountain where plenty of multi bedroom beautiful rentals at much less money are available. (Or stay In the hotel on property instead, better value).

Nice stay with plenty of space
We enjoyed our stay at the Crooked Tree cottage. The only thing that could have made it better would be some upgrades to the carpeting and more coffee pods for the coffee machine. We packed a package of coffee to brew , but were unaware that we needed to pack kuerig coffee pods instead.

5/5 Excellent
