Awake to the early morning breathtaking beachfront sunrises. Walk the sugar sand beaches of Lake Huron. Enjoy a late night beach fire. Bike the 13 mile bike path from Alabaster to the Tawas Bay Lighthouse. Kayak Lake Huron, canoe the Ausable, shop Newman Street for the wines of the Brew Krew and Windjammer, O'Connor's Pendletons,and the Village Chocolatier's nationally acclaimed chocolates or catch a flick at the Family Theater. Cook on your own gas grill - or order in fantastic food from Tawas Beach Grill. Fish, golf, or just laze on your own beach in front of The Cottage. Finish off the day watching the moon rise over Lake Huron. In the fall enjoy the beautiful Harvest Moons and the terrific fall color. Fully furnished. Ski in the winter. A bottle of wine or box of chocolates welcomes you on arrival.

Dr. Murlene McKinnon purchased this cottage in 2008
I bought The Cottage because it is next to my home on Lake Huron and therefore easy to manage and deal with the needs of my clients. I also enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories! It is especially nice for families with small children
Staying at The Cottage in the Fall is a real treat. Enjoy a later night beach fire and watch the moon rise over the lake. In the winter cross country ski in the Lake Huron Forest on the Corsair trails. Sleep on a pillow top mattress and have the soothing waves of Lake Huron lull you to sleep. Sip a steaming cup of coffee or tea and watch the sun rise. This is a place to be really lazy - or indulge in as many activities as one pleases -- biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, reading, sunbathing, skiing, wine drinking, etc.
What a great get-away. Very clean and well stocked. There wasn't anything that we needed or wanted. Mac was very helpful with suggestions for dining and places to visit. Can't wait to see the cabin in the winter. Thanks Mac!
We have been to the Cottage for the last four years. The owner, who lives next door, is delightful. In addition to being fun to be around she makes sure the Cottage is in immaculate condition. Tawas and it's surrounding areas provide a beautiful scenery and a relaxed life style. If you want to relax, enjoy Lake Huron and meet delightful people the Cottage is for you.
This was exactly what we were looking for. The scenery was beautiful, the area was very peaceful and the cottage was perfect. Everything we needed was there. It was exceptionally clean which is one of the most important things to me. We had fires and wine on the beach every night and it was very romantic. This place is perfect for any type of vacation whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a fun filled week. You just can't go wrong.
My sister and I planned this trip in early February to get away from the summer heat of Florida. We were very pleased with the cottage. The location is fantastic. The views were wonderful and even the weather cooperated. The only negative for us was the beds. Although they are advertised as pillowtops, they really only have pillowtop mattress covers. Unfortunately we both woke up to sore backs. Both of us recovered later in the day. Honestly, we've already marked out calendars for next year.
We stayed in this lovely cottage while visiting our family who lives in the area. This cabin is just perfect, the sandy beach was wonderful and the grassy yard was a great alternative. We fully enjoyed our stay and felt welcome and comfortable the entire time. My teen daughter enjoyed using the canoe and it was a safe place for my toddler to play. The water was very shallow when we visited in Sept, but absolutely perfect for lounging. I would recommend water shoes or old sneakers if you would like to wander out over the rocks to where the water is deep enough to swim.
What a “Jewel” of a cottage nestled on the wooded shoreline in Tawas!
First and foremost: The cottage owner has created a northern Michigan haven, with an eye to every detail for the comfort and enjoyment of her guests!
My husband & I had to make last minute plans to travel three hours up to Tawas, MI. We came across this cottage listing quite by chance while doing an online search. We were delighted when we arrived and found the accommodations to be far superior to our expectations!
Nestled on a quite drive, the cottage is situated in a very attractive, woodsy setting. The exterior of the cottage is handsome and very well turned out. The interior is what I would describe as a modern cottage. It was impeccably clean and neat, and very up to date. Yet still had that Northern Michigan Charm.
The host/owner has not scrimped on a single thing in her vacation cottage. From the kitchen equipment, to the new plush top mattresses in both bedrooms. From the light fixtures, to the cottage decor, everything was outstanding!
And I have to mention again the cleanliness was unsurpassed.
Now the views! When you walk in, the first thing you are greeted with is a picturesque view of the lake, just a short distance from your covered deck porch. Our host even provided us with wood for a fire on the beach and a canoe. Plus a box of chocolates and a tour of the cottage.
Our host was friendly and very interesting to converse with. She provided us with good suggestions for shopping and site seeing, she even has internet access for her guests. It was so enjoyable and pleasant I wished we could have stayed more then just the one night. Plus the cottage rates were what I consider very reasonable compared to what the other accommodations in the area have to offer.
I have lived in Michigan my entire life – and traveled to many areas of the state, and this trip and the accommodations were by far the most enjoyable and pleasant that I have experienced in a very long time.
Warm thanks to our host! We had a wonderful time and hope to return again :)
