Our family enjoys spending time outdoors and but we also enjoy having an option out of the elements at night which is why we loved our experience at Petoskey RV Resort.  We are definitely more of “glamping” type campers. 

According tGo RVing,  Deluxe cabins and premium cottages are also known as Park Model RVs.  They are unique units that provide temporary accommodations for recreation, camping or seasonal use.

Park Model RVs are designed to look like a home, but they need to be hooked up to site electricity, sewer, and water like any RV.  They may have a front porch, a sleeping loft, and are a great way to experience camping if you’re not ready to purchase an RV or all the gear that goes with tent camping.

Premium Cottages at Petoskey RV Resort

What to Expect in the Premium Cottage 

During our visit, we stayed in the 1 bedroom Premium Cottage that sleeps 2-6. It was perfect for our family of 4. The parents had a bedroom and the teenager got the loft as their space.

The Covered Porch at the Premium Cottage

Upon arrival at the Premium Cottage, the first impression is the covered porch that looks out to the small pond.

There are two Adirondack style chairs with a small table on the porch. In the yard for the cottage, there is a picnic table and a fire ring for campfires for each cottage. This is a great spot for morning coffee or late night chats.

The Kitchen in the Premium Cottage

One of the biggest surprises, when I went inside the premium cottage, was the kitchen area. The Premium Cottage has a kitchen with full-sized appliances, cookware, dinnerware, and utensils. You have a full refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, and oven range.

There were coffee filters supplied along several packets with coffee, tea, and sweeteners which was a nice touch.

Loft Area of the Premium Cottage

The loft area has a shorter ceiling with two separate mattress areas between the stairs. This is an area that is fun for younger kids…and my teenagers had no problem sleeping in in the mornings up there too.

My husband and I took a section of the trail going toward Charlevoix and stopped to view the bird on the bike path and also got an early morning look at the calm water that day.

It was really nice to have a bike path so accessible, and we loved the views in the morning and the last minute drives to watch sunsets nearby.
