Keywords: Lake Michigan Cottage
This family cottage has been our vacation home and then year-round home for about 25 years. It is a beautiful, peaceful, and quiet location just 12 miles south of Charlevoix and directly west of the Antrim Dells Golf Course (open to the public). It located just 20 minutes from two of the best restaurants in Michigan: Tapawingo and Rowe Inn; both located in Ellsworth. Don't miss these gourmet restaurants and make sure to make reservations in advance as they are quite busy in the summer months.
We chose this "Gold Coast" location for our family cottage because of the beautiful beaches and sunsets. The peaceful and tranquil location is the ultimate in "laid back." The beaches are perfect for walking, running, playing or swimming. The water is totally safe and clean. Nightimes and mornings, you will find perfect silence except for the lapping of the waves or the call of the Seagulls.
The Antrim Creek Natural Area is just 5 cottages down to the north. You will easily recognize it as the boundry is marked by a little stream that kids and dogs love to play in. Cross the stream (it is easy to wade through, and sometimes to jump over) and you'll find 156 acres of rolling sand dunes and over one mile of pristine beaches which fade into woods on your right. There are no homes and no buildings in this area. Just acres of woods and beaches with few people. There are some great trails through the woods. After more than 25 years, we have yet to see a group over 10-15 people in the entire area. The Antrim Creek Natural Area is a Prehistoric Native American site dateing to the Late Woodland period. Based on the recovery of small triangular arrowheads and distinctive cordimpressed pottery fragments it probably is Late Woodland in age (circa A.D. 600-A.D 1600) For more details and some beautiful photos of the area, go to the Antrim Natural Area Website.
Antrim Dells Golf Course is directly east of the cottage and a 5 minute drive. This course is 18 holes and open to the public. Much of the course has great views of Lake Michigan.
