CHARMING COTTAGE WITH AND LAKE VIEWS - AUG 10-17 STILL AVAILABLE

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.

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.

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.

SIMPLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
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.

WEST MICHIGAN GETAWAY COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
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 VISIT

  • 5 of 5
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.

WE LOVED MID OAKS!

  • 5 of 5
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!

FANTASTIC NEW YEARS STAY!

  • 5 of 5
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!

FANTASTIC VACATION, VERY RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We loved the place. It was very comfortable and the house was well equipped with the necessities. But the best part was Location, Location, Location. Short walk to the beach and the Channel Inn. As someone who goes to the Ocean a lot My wife was loving the lake. Beautiful beach with soft sand. The kids loved playing in the yard when we were relaxing on the deck.

If you want to just relax, this is the place.
