Enjoy a classic, cosy, Michigan cottage with a 50 foot deck with views of Lake Michigan. It is nestled among towering oak trees. Michigan cottages have names and this one is naturally called MidOaks.
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.
The area is a great place for teaching kids about wildlife. White River Barrier Dunes Sanctuary is just 5 minutes away. You'll see deer, racoon, possum, beaver, cranes, swans, you name it.
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.
The Fall colors are spectacular. If you are a biker, you'll love the deserted roads nearby that circle Lake Michigan.
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 woodburning 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.
