Montague Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Enjoy a classic, cosy, Michigan cottage with a 50 foot deck and views of Lake Michigan. It is nestled among towering oak trees. Michigan cottages have names and this one is naturally called MidOaks.
The Fall colors are spectacular. If you are a biker, you'll love the deserted roads that circle Lake Michigan.
Enjoy a hike in the nearby White River Barrier Dunes Sanctuary. You'll see deer, raccoon, possum, beaver, cranes, swans, you name it.
In the winter, enjoy the warmth of a large wood burning fireplace after an afternoon of cross country skiing. If you're more inclined towards indoor activities, the cottage is stocked with books, games, puzzles and more. WIFI available.
The large living room has a vaulted ceiling and a wood burning fireplace. My husband chops and splits all the wood himself, so you'll never run out.
Sunsets are amazing this time of year, with an afterglow that fills the sky.
Located on a private road, yet close to many activities. 5 minute walk to miles of Lake Michigan beach which is beautiful in winter. Sometimes it freezes for 500 feet out with 10 foot drifts frozen in mid-air.
If there is snow, which there usually is, you can cross country ski from your front door through the woods. There is also ice fishing on White Lake.
We have 4 sets of cross country skis, but you'll need your own boots.
Only a 5 minute walk to the beach with no long steps. There is also a car drop off point if you are taking lots of stuff to the beach.
You can enjoy an old fashioned game of croquet in the large front yard. If you'd rather read a book there's a hammock for whiling away a quiet afternoon.
The cottage is equipped with games, books, beach chairs, bikes...everything you could want for a great vacation.
Special summer activities abound in Montague which is only 15 minutes by car. There is a supermarket, drugstore with DVD rentals, gas station and farmers market, plus fireworks on the 4th!
Fully equipped kitchen for gourmet cooking.
This has been our own cottage for over 20 years. The cottage was built in the 1940's with many updates including bathrooms and kitchen. It is decorated with country touches including lots of quilts. The cottage is located on a private road, yet still close to the beach and lots of activities.
You will find it has all the amenities you could ever want. Including no TV. Don't worry we have WIFI. But it's a great place to turn off the outside world of work.

What makes this cottage unique
Just a 5 minute walk to the beach on the forest foot path. No long steps to climb. There is also a drop off place for cars to drop off kids and beach toys The property overlooks the white lake area bird sanctuary. The area is filled with forest animals and is a great place to see great blue herons, eagles and more. The town of Montague has one of the best small independent book stores with live entertainment and a full coffee service. We are just a 10 minute walk to White Lake which is 7 miles long and home to national sailboat regattas. White Lake has a picturesque, navigable entrance into Lake Michigan. On the way to the beach is the Old Channel Inn a great place for lunch and dinner.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This little cottage in the woods was amazing. It was well kept, clean,
thoroughly furnished and even had little extras. i.e. tin full of
hershey kisses, pantry with spices and herbs, games and outdoor
equipment for entertainment.
You were very kind and helpful. You were very willing to answer any
questions we had. Even the questions you had already answered in an
email you had sent days before I didn't read until half way through
our weekend. Sorry :)
I would and already have recommended this cottage to friends and family.
Thanks so much Pam and Tim for sharing your little piece of heaven
with us! We plan to be back again sometime.
