I run a training business for the criminal justice field - police, judges, dispatch, and federal agents. Served in Peace Corps in Africa. Have traveled extensively.

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!

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.

CALGON TAKE ME AWAY

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you enjoyed The Cottage. We are wondering if perhaps the beds may have been too soft for our guests. The mattresses actually are quite thick pillow tops and also have pillow top mattress pads in order to offer a luxurious sleep experience to those who stay with us. Thus far all of our guests have raved about them and how wonderfully they slept! We are sorry that your experience was not positive.

COULDN'T HAVE STAYED IN A BETTER PLACE!

Couldn't have stayed in a better place!
  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. We are delighted you enjoyed yourself. Water shoes are a very good idea as the lake changes from year to year - sometimes there is a rocky area like last year, other years it is completely sand.

A "JEWEL” OF A COTTAGE NESTLED ON WOODSY SHORES!

A "Jewel” of a cottage nestled on woodsy shores!
  • 5 of 5
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 :)

PICTURE PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Off to Michigan for a week of family time. This cottage had so much to offer; peace, solitude, great grassy yard, white sandy beach, shallow swimming area for floating and playing. It was a pleasure having the owner right next door. She is very helpful and knowledgable of the local area. We will definitely be back in the future. I already miss my coffee on the porch every morning when the lake is quiet and the sun is rising. This is a perfect place for a family with small children as well as teenagers. It is a little slice of heaven!

GREAT COTTAGE, GREAT BEACH!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (including a teenager and a pre-teen) spent a week at “The Cottage” and enjoyed every minute of it. There was plenty of room for all of us and it was clean and comfortable. The view of Tawas Bay was wonderful, the beach was clean and the lake was refreshing. We spent the mornings sight-seeing the surrounding area and the afternoons on the beach at the cottage. It is located on a quiet drive which is great for biking or walking/running. It is also very close to the bike path that leads through Tawas City and East Tawas to the state park. There are many things to do in the area no matter what you’re interested in. There are also plenty of nearby restaurants even though the cottage has everything you need to prepare your own meals. The owner, Mac, was very accommodating and a pleasure to talk to. She made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. Hope to make it back!

GIRLS WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This is our second trip at this cottage. It's clean and comfortable for 4 people. You are on the water for a beautiful view, a swim or a bonfire. The walking trail is safe and fun. Heading into town to see boats or shopping is always a fun thing to do. Sitting on the porch rain or shine is a relaxing environment. Mac takes good care of us when we are there for our stay and the cottage has everything you need.
Thanks Mac
