Maplewood Cottages - Unit 7

Dowagiac, Michigan


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 March 1, 2021.
Not only is this home conveniently located to tourist attractions but great resturants as well. Take an evening stroll to the Sisters Lakes Brewing company of 14 microbrews produced by the owner's family or the Strand Brewery & Grill. Other dining and shopping are in Dowagiac and nearby towns. There are also public parks in the area as well as golf courses, wineries, breweries, theaters, shopping, and the Four Winds Casino in Dowagiac. The resort town of St. Joseph on Lake Michigan is only 20 minutes away. Looking for a little adventure outside of water sports... Check out the snowmobile trail that runs between Sister Lakes and Grand Rapids and a biking trail that runs between Sister Lakes and the airport in Dowagiac. The surrounding countryside is part of the Michigan fruit belt, with wineries and apple, strawberry, peach, and cherry farms with roadside stands or you pick excursions.
The entire cottage is for your private use with an easy self-check-in process to accommodate various arrival times. There is a private entrance with your own access code that will function between yourcheck-in and check-out times. Come back after a great day of exploring and enjoy access to a kitchen with a stovetop, toaster oven, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker as well as dishes and utensils. Sleeps 4 comfortably.

    Nice Cabin

    4/5 Stayed Apr 17, 2021
    Submitted Apr 18, 2021

    Place was as advertised and the room looked like it had been recently refreshed. A few small issues-there are are tons of windows and the blinds are not very effective against sunlight and the heating unit was very loud all night. Also, the sliding glass door would not lock so we had to jury rig a block.
