The Space:
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 1, 2021.

Not only is this home conveniently located to tourist attractions but great resturants as well.

Great location
This property is one of several cottage rentals on one large lot. The lake access is through the lot, across a street and down a small hill, between two other lake houses. Great fishing right off the dock. I took my kayak and found a drainage tunnel to the left with access to the adjacent lake. Nice shallow water to easily see the fish.Dockside Dan's is within walking distance easily. Great view of the lake from the patio and excellent perch dinner. A little farther is the strand which looked very fun lots of outdoor activities and drinks. Also sister lakes brewing. Great food and variety of beer. Overall great stay. I would go here again, great location. Only issues were that i had a dirty floor when I arrived and did not get the access code email or text upon arrival. Had to ask the maintenance guy for the code. During my visit they were finishing renovating the last two cottages. I'm sure these were just minor inconveniences because they are so new. Also parking spaces could be addressed. And move the fire pit so people aren't parking over it.
