Enjoy a classic, cozy, Michigan cottage with views of Lake Michigan. It is nestled among towering oak trees. Michigan cottages have names and this one is naturally called MidOaks.
Located on a private road, yet close to many activities and only a 5 minute walk to miles of Lake Michigan beach. No long steps to navigate. There is also a small parking area/drop off spot near the entrance to the beach
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!
Enjoy a hike in the nearby White River Barrier Dunes Sanctuary. You'll see deer, raccoon, possum, beaver, cranes, swans, you name it.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Lake Michigan freezes into a moon like landscape with 10 foot frozen drifts and a walk on the beach is actually quite remarkable.
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.
The Fall colors are spectacular. If you are a biker, you'll love the deserted roads that circle Lake Michigan.
This has been our personal vacation home for many years, It is in excellent condition with many recent upgrades. You will find indoor and outdoor games, beach chairs, bikes, books etc to enjoy a great vacation
Pam Prosch purchased this cottage in 1940
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.
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.
My friends and I rented this cottage in the later Spring of 2014. It was absolutely perfect. The cottage itself was inviting and warm. The front lawn, view of the Lake and general location are incredible. On the one hand, I would recommend the cottage to anyone but on the other hand, I don't want anyone else to know about it!! Trust me, you will not want to leave this cottage and you will be thinking about how you can get a place like this yourself. On top of it all, the owner's communication was outstanding from beginning to end. Wonderful experience. Thank you!
My family spent a long weekend at Mid Oaks, and loved every minute of it. The cottage is beautifully maintained, very clean and comfortable, with views of Lake Michigan in the main living area, the back two bedrooms, and a small view from the kitchen. We hope to be back in the near future to enjoy the best that Michigan has to offer.
Our family recently spent a week at this lovely little cottage. It is close to Whitehall and Montegue so we were able to ride bikes to these towns. The Lloyds Landing Beach is awesome and easy to walk to. It is also a short drive to some local vineyards, Silver Lake and Michigan Adventure. We would definitely recommend this property and plan to stay there again.
Great place for our family vacation. Easy access to a beautiful beach via the short walk - parking was usually available too. The house had everything we needed (including beach stuff) and owners were very helpful and friendly. Great access to canoeing, golf, waterparks and dune rides with short drives.
Our vacation at Mid Oaks in Montague was absolutely perfect! The house is big and lovely, with so many wonderful touches, like the antique wheelchair in the mudroom, the working pump organ in the great room, and the beautiful quilts on each of the beds. The deck is amazing, and the kitchen is huge! We cooked on the grill every night. The fireplace is also wonderful - we were able to cozy up to a warm fire and roast marshmallows indoors. The beach is just a short walk away, and is soft sand with a beautiful view. The area around the house is covered in beautiful trees, and we were able to see lots of songbirds, deer, wild turkeys and other animals while on vacation. Pam and Tim are great - the house is very well-maintained, and they supplied lots of firewood and even beach toys for our young son to play with. The towns (Montague and Whitehall) are wonderful - the soda fountain in Montague became our favorite lunch and treat spot (try the malts, they are awesome!), and my son loved the waterfront park and playground in Whitehall. If you are looking for a great place to vacation with small children, this is it! Even with a toddler, we were totally relaxed and had a great time. My family is hoping to return to Mid Oaks next year for another fantastic beach holiday!
This was a fun, quiet, cute little cottage to stay in for a romantic, low key New Years weekend. We kept the fireplace burning almost every waking hour, and cooked several meals in the well stocked kitchen. The winter time view of Lake Michigan out the bay window was excellent. I will definitely have to check out this cottage sometime during the summer for some Lake Michigan beach time! I'll certainly be back again!
Cozy cottage with great views of Lake Michigan and breathtaking sunsets from living room and large deck. Over a mile of beautiful beaches. Near everything including tennis, golf, sailing, kayaking and bike trails. Great restaurant a five minute walk away. Just a short walk to 8 mile long White lake where national regattas take place. True locally grown fruit and vegetables at Farmer's market every Wed and Sat. Fishing for salmon on Lake Michigan with knowledgeable captain. Music in the band shell on the lake and live theater. Antique hunting. Lots of festivals during the summer and fall, pumpkin roll, fish boil, arts and crafts etc.
