McMillan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 large loft, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 5 comfortably

This Cottage-Cabin on the quaint 122 acre East Lake is perfect for the small family or couple looking for the classic cottage experience in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Fishing, campfires, relaxing all await.

The amenities from home, coupled with the beautiful view of East Lake makes for a perfect get-away. Eat inside at the wooden table or at the large picnic table outside. You can even enjoy your the deck overlooking the lake with comfy patio furniture. Sleep together in the wide-open, high-ceiling upstairs.

Enjoy fishing on East Lake either from the dock or the rowboat. Feel free to bring your own motor. Easy biking on the gravel road around the lake. The walk-out lower level with an easy access 1/2 bathroom makes it convenient to walk into the cabin from your campfire or the water. Walking distance to a little convenience store on MI-28. Pets considered.

The cottage experience: The East Lake Cottage has many amenities you are used to at home. It is a comfy, cozy place to enjoy your vacation and get away from it all. It is an easy walk to the little convenience store along MI-28. The lake is beautiful to look at from the deck there are many oppotunities to explore the beautiful U.P.

Even though the cottage is not isolated in the woods there are the normal little bugs, mosquitos and spiders that often are found around cabin/ lake-front living. We actively work at providing the best, safest insect control for you, your kids and pets. That doesn't mean they are non-existent. I especially wish I could find the cure for mosquitos at dusk.

Also, keep in mind that everyone in your group must be able to entertain themselves (fishing, reading, exploring nature, non-selective DVD/VHS watching) in order to truly enjoy the cottage experience. You are welcome to bring your own game system to hook to the TV, books, board games, DVDs or old VHS tapes.

East Lake is ideal for a couple or small families. Since there is just 1 large, open loft, it is not ideal for couples traveling together. Coupled with the incline for entering the cabin, the East Lake can be challenging for multi-generational travel as well. Keep in mind that there are neighbors, so we would recommend another cabin for groups larger than 5, or for those who enjoy loud, late night campfires.

Area attractions: Tacquamenon Falls is about 30 miles northeast. Oswald's Bear Ranch is about 20 miles northeast.

Pictured Rocks is about 50 miles west.

Newberry (a 1-picture movie theater, grocery stores, ice cream, etc.) is 7 miles northeast.

Fishing: East Lake is a beautiful 122 acre lake. Great fishing for Bass, Walleye, Pike, Perch and pan fish. Use the provided basic fishing/row boat--feel free to bring your own motor. Easy access launch is available nearby for your own boat as well. Many options.

Why Freshwater Vacation Rentals chose McMillan

The East Lake Cottage is right in the heart of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The cottage is within a couple hours drive to Tahquamenon Falls State Park, Pictured Rocks National Park and Oswald's Bear Ranch.

What makes this cottage unique

A great cottage at the right price. Simple, clean, and all the basics you need for a fun vacation connecting with your family or friends. I love the deck overlooking East Lake. The lake is great for boaters who are not comfortable in the bigger lakes. I also love that you have your own space, yet still a cottage-around-the-lake experience. There is an empty lot next door, so that makes it feel even more spacious.

East Lake cottage was recommended to us from a relative and we loved it here! The cottage was very clean and well-maintained. We enjoyed fishing on East Lake and the view was just beautiful! Everything that we needed was there for us, so that made our experience very relaxing! I would highly recommend East Lake cottage to people looking for a fun relaxing getaway! Great place for families! We can't wait to go back!
