If you'd like to roam a pretty, rustic beach, collect unusual rocks, watch incedible sunsets, be rocked to sleep by the sound of the waves, this is the place for you and your family. There is privacy, ample room, in this well kept, cottage right on Lake Michigan. The layout of the cottage is very conducive to enjoying the beachfront as much as possible. I loved listening to the rain and sleeping in on the sunporch on a very comfortable futon. Hummingbirds travel back and forth from feeder to feeder on the deck and the scent of pine is pure aromatherapy. You can tell a lot of love went in to making this cottage so comfortable and aligned with the landscape.
This was our 3rd summer renting and plan on continuing the tradition. Beautiful in every way from the lake to the layout of the cottage itself and the many amenities available outdoors to enjoy your stay. The cottage is exactly as described - loaded with all you need. The location is central to easy day trips to Mackinac, Harbor Springs, and Petoskey and the biking in the area is wonderful. If you are looking for a place to kick-back, relax, and enjoy your family in wonderful surrounds, this is it!!
We have rented a few cottages but this one is the best! This is the nicest place to stay. Gina and the caretaker were very helpful. It is a clean, well-loved cabin in the woods. Unlike other cabins in the area, this cabin has trees that allow for privacy from the neighbors. The cottage has all of your needs nested in the trees. The upstairs master bedroom was perfect for me and my children because it has a wonderful sunroom attached. My two young boys were able to sleep in privacy right next to us in a very comfortable futon. The sound of the waves at night would put us all to sleep. The view from the kitchen and livingroom was spectacular.
We were able to push the downstairs twin beds together to make it a nice double bed for our Aunt and Uncle. Everyone was comfortable and happy!
We visited Mac City and St. Ignace but mostly stayed home and enjoyed the beach. We look forward to next year!
