This cottage is a non smoking cottage.
My husband and I purchased the cottage from his family and two years ago totally remodeled the inside of this vintage cottage, making it look more beachy/European. We live next door to the cottage and love to see people enjoy the comfort and beach living that our area has to offer. We added air conditioning the fall of 2011.
This land has been in the family since 1919, it is a very special and secluded treasure boosting one of the best beaches that Michigan has to offer. And it is surrounded by the Grande Mere State Park, so one can plan on seeing lots of deer, wild turkeys, and many different types of birds.
Other Activities: boating, wildlife viewing, shopping, kayaking, mini golf
