The frontage is more beautiful than words can describe. The cottage is sits 150 feet from the road giving you privacy and security. There are 2 cement decks right in front of the cottage each with 2 picnic tables, then 2 beautiful rock gardens, next you come to a beautiful wooden swing. The gazebo is overlooking the lake and has another 12x18 deck on it. There is an octagon-shaped built-in table, a patio table with 6 chairs and a swing on it. The view from the deck is awesome especially at sunset. The lake frontage has a firepit with wood, a boathouse, L-shaped dock, sandbox, 2 swings, a slide, 2 kayaks, canoe, paddleboat and rowboat. There is a swimming raft, a yard swing on the lake, a sandy volleyball court and our own private porta-jon for use when on the frontage.
The inside of the cottage is open and spacious with a kitchen, dining room and living room that all open into one big room. The kitchen has 2 full sz refrigs, microwave, coffeemaker and all the small appliances needed. There are pots, pans, dishes and utensils galore. The living room has a big flat screen TV with expanded cable, a DVD player, several movies, games and a woodburner for cool evenings. There is a gas furnace vented to each room.

Ken and Kelly Crocker bought the cottage from his mother in 1983, with 3 small children we knew we had to rent it out in the summer to be able to afford to keep it. We have made many improvements over the years, making it a family friendly vacation for all our guests. In the fall we rent weeks and weekends to couples looking to get away after the lake quiets downs. We really enjoy helping you have a wonderful, relaxing vacation.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1983
My family has been coming to this cottage for years. There are a half dozen boats included in the rental, and tons of extras. The lake is crystal clear and I'm told great for fishing. We love the gazebo area for outdoor meals. This cottage is on a beautiful lakefront property. The kids love the paddle boats and kayak and jumping off the swimming raft. Plenty of room: four bedrooms. The owners are lovely and thoughtful- they really think of everything! My family looks forward to the cottage every year!
This is the 2nd summer we have rented this cottage. We also rented the smaller 2 bedroom next door. Everything is there for you. No need to ever leave. 9 kids played all week in the sand, kayaked, swam, fished, woods walked. It was a great week. Fires every night after the kids went to bed. So relaxing. The house is well equipped with everything you need. Ludington is only 20 minutes away if you want a day of shopping or a Lake MI beach. We're going back,the kid's and grand-kids insist!
