Lakefront cottage rental

  • 5 of 5
I was on an extended business trip in Troy Mi which is about 25 minutes away. I used this cottage as a hotel for a week of that trip. This is everything I could have hoped for and more. No matter how windy the day was the lake was always flat. The fish would come right up to you in the lake. The lake water was warm. The ceiling fans keep the air moving so it didn't get too warm. The neighbors were very nice. The wireless internet connection made it easy to work from the cottage. I would like to go back on a vacation some day.

Perfect escape!

  • 5 of 5
Being from the Detroit area, I was just looking for a quiet little getaway with a friend. This cozy cottage was the perfect spot. Even though we didn't have great weather (late April in Michigan, no big surprise right?) we had a great time in this fully outfitted cottage. So many details are taken care of: cable/internet, laundry, dishwasher and fully outfitted kitchen and all linens. We didn't get to use the outdoor space or activities, but we've already decided we'd like to go back again. Location is nice, it's tucked away north of I-75, literally on the lake, but still close enough to make trips to Great Lakes Crossing and area restaraunts and shopping. All areas of the cottage were clean and in good condition. Host was professional and considerate, the whole experience was fantastic. Thank you!!

We were going to Detroit for a hockey trip. We were looking at hotels and came acrossed the cozy cottage....the price was great and the cottage was better than we could have dreamed . even with the lake mostly frozen, it was still great. This was our second year for our hockey trip and it was the best. I hope that we can stay again next year. and we are talking about commimg back in the fall so we can enjoy the lake while it's not frozen. thanks so much Swanson family for renting us your awsome cottage!!!!

LOVED IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
The Cozy Cottage was an absolutely wonderful experience for both myself and my family. We spent two weeks at the cottage with 3 young children and could not have been happier. We had an easy, beautiful commute everyday to Pontiac for our son and it was well worth driving the extra 15 minutes vs staying in a hotel. The Swanson family was wonderful and took great care of us. The house is in great condition and the amenities were perfect. My wife and I are clean freaks and the house was spotless when we arrived. The board games, fishing poles and the John boat was great to come home to everyday and my 6 year old had a blast fishing for Largemouth Bass. If you are looking for a home away from home with zero stress this is your spot. Best of Luck and thanks again Swanson family.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5
The Cozy Cottage was very well maintained and clean. I was pleased to find a very well stocked kitchen. It is larger on the inside than it looks from the outside. Was fairly close to neighbors, but was quiet and the lake was peaceful and serene. We even had swans swimming to our lakeshore. The firepit was terrific and there was ample wood and lawn chairs. Beds were comfortable and the overall weekend was very relaxing. I had my mom, 3 daughters and a granddaughter (baby) and there was plenty of room for the 5 adults without feeling cramped. There was a grocery store a couple miles up the road which made getting food easy. There is also a nearby Subway and an Italian eatery which was very good. Overall it was a very enjoyable weekend and a great value for the money. (also the deposit was returned VERY quickly)

Back for a second time

  • 5 of 5
This was our second consecutive year at the cottage. It felt like coming home. We had a relaxing week. We did'nt need anything, and caretaker Joe (and neighbor) really went out of his way to make sure we had all that we might have needed. We thank the Swansons for the use of their cottage,(and yes it's cozy).
