This newly listed cottage is great for the water lover! Big Crooked Lake and Little Crooked Lake are within 1 mile from the cottage and they are both all sports lakes. They are nearly the same size - Little Crooked is 103 acres, Big Crooked 110 - their shape and the lay of the land leaves Big Crooked with nearly twice as much shoreline. Updated photos to arrive once the place has been tastefully decorated and furnished throughout. Cottage will become available April 15, 2021.

Property is in the process of being refreshed, and our unit was the last to be done - clearly not ready yet, and the unit was still being cleaned an hour after our arrival. Also, the listing showed two bedrooms, each with a double bed, but there was only one room with a double bed and the other room had a pull-out couch bed. The property manager was super responsive, and they made it right financially, so we stayed, and really enjoyed our time. We will come again and try one of the larger units that has been completely redone. Looking forward to all the improvements being done on the grounds as well, it is a very nice area, and the cabins are old timey and fun.
