Cottage was very easy to get to. Only half a mile to downtown where there is a lot going on. Not even half a mile to a section of beach right on lake michigan that is very private. Pier is around half a mile. The cottage is clean and the owner was very quick to return my questions. The rooms are fairly small. But if your not staying in the bedroom all the time it works for what we needed. The living room was nice and sunny. Would like more than one couch to sit on since there was 5 of us. The back deck was very nice and we were able to park right in front of it. Would be nice if there was a firepit outside to have a fire at night, but it was a very nice place to stay at. We were close to the beach and town, price was great, and we got to bring our pups. Definitely recommend!
