Short-term rentals around the Lake:
The CLTA Board has received a number of complaints regarding short-term rental of Lake Homes. Utilizing a growing number of Websites, a few homeowners have been renting their homes for a week or less at a time to a variety of people or groups. The renters far too often treat the house as an all-night party house and fail to respect the neighbors' property or right to peace and quiet. We have been working with the township to develop reasonable zoning rules to help manage this situation.
Unfortunately, some within the real estate industry have lobbied the state and are supporting two bills that would prevent local governments from regulating short-term rentals. We ask that all interested home owners contact their State Representative Brad Iden Brandtiden@house.mi.govand their State Senator Margret O'Brien SenMObien@senate.michigan.gov to express their opposition to taking this issue away from local government. Our local elected officials are in the best position to determine what is best for Crooked Lake.
