Perfect Family Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed here multiple times with our two young (ages 5 and 2) children, and I can confirm that the description is very accurate. This is a GREAT family location with a very nice, private beach and dock. One of the nicer amenities is the deck with stairs to the beach. The deck is well shaded and has a sliding screen that opens from the cottage onto it so you can leave it open and hear the general lake sounds all day. There are LOTS of windows in the cottage which help give it a fairly airy feel, including two large windows in the ceiling of the living room that help bring in direct sunlight. There is also a single car garage, although I'm not sure if that is consistently available for use or not.
Lake Missaukee (the lake the cottage fronts on) is a very nice lake with a medium level of jetski/boat activity. Great sunsets off the deck pretty routinely, as well as a picnic table so you can eat out on the deck (which became a habit during our stay). There is a firepit on the beach which we also enjoyed. The town of Lake City is about a 5 minute drive away with an extremely nice state park beach access as well as plenty of little restaurants (and bars if you so desire). There is a grocery store a few miles from the cottage so you don't have to go all the way into town for your groceries, which is nice.
The cottage is in a nice little residential neigborhood with paved streets, so there is plenty of room for little ones to ride bikes if well supervised. The nearest large town is Cadillac, which is about a 10 -15 minute drive. Plenty of amenities there, though, including Meijer and Super Wal-Mart (if you need necessities) and plenty of restaurants, both local and chain. Cadillac has a nice 5 screen movie theater, as well, and a killer coffee shop just a block away (Shay Station, as I recall) - made for a perfect "date night."
That's most of what I remember - hope it helped!

Spacious, Clean Accomodations

  • 4 of 5
Our thanks to the owners for sharing their property this summer. It was our first visit to the Lake City area and we found it charming and friendly. The property was clean and updated, stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The living area was spacious and the deck overlooking the lake was beautiful all day long. The lake is very weedy in spots, but we found some nice areas to fish and swim. The water was clean and clear. There are several eateries and pubs in Lake City along with some interesting shopping. Cadillac is just 15-20 minutes away and there were several nice golf courses in the area as well. A great place to spend some time!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage the week of June 25, 2011. Although this cottage is small it is very open and gives the feeling of spaciousness. We found this cottage to be very clean, neat and cozy. We rented this cottage knowing that we had too many people staying for the space (children and grandchildren) but found it to be just fine. It was wonderful to have cable TV for all of us when grandchildren needed quiet time or if the weather wasn't so good. The kitchen was well stocked, functional and easy to clean. The washer and dryer was great - made it really easy to keep up with laundry. The deck was huge and functional with a spectacular view of the lake. The front yard was also really nice, the little kids enjoyed playing in it. The beach was clean, spacious and nice and shallow for the little ones. It has a nice dock for our boat, making it really easy to get in and off the lake. We enjoyed the neighbors and the neighborhood, everyone was very friendly. We would recommend this cottage to anyone.
