Lewiston Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage + boathouse bedroom on All-sport lake!!

'Fantastic swimming, fishing, skiing, and kayaking right out your door on this large all-sport lake, short drive to golf in Gaylord or Garland, separate boathouse sleeping area with private bath overlooking lake, close to town, yet you feel like you are in the woods.

This comfortable, well maintained, lakefront cabin is located on the north side of West Twin Lake, in charming Lewiston, MI. Enjoy the views from the lake facing windows, the three seasoned porch, or out on the open patio. Have your morning coffee on the dock while watching the loons. Lay in the shady hammock and watch the kids playing on the dock.

This cabin has the authentic knotty-pine 'Up-North' feel. One of the few homes on the lake to have a private bedroom/bathroom overlooking the lake. There is air conditioning in the main house. The home is fully supplied with all kitchen/linen items. All you need is your swimsuit and fishing pole! This home is ready for kids with games and bikes to use when you are not enjoying the lake. There is a comfy fireplace to warm up the cottage on those cool nights.

The lake has a sandy bottom is fantastic for swimming and the lakefront is complete with a private, 80ft dock for boat mooring and a nice sandy shoreline. The dock is waiting for you to pull up your power boat or to use our rowboat or canoe. There is a barbeque for your family cook-outs.

Sleeps 10 very comfortably.

About Ruth Wiley

This cottage has been in the family since it was built in the 50's. Originally built as a hunting cabin, it has been expanded a few times over the years but still has it's 1950's charm. None of the family lives in Michgan anymore but we still love to come to the cottage once or twice a year. We hope you will enjoy it the rest of the summer!

Ruth Wiley purchased this cottage in 1955

Why Ruth Wiley chose Lewiston

This property is especially great for young families because there is plenty of shallow sandy water to play in. There is great 'fishing for kids' I call it 'kerplunking'!! You can walk or boat over to the canal and toss your line in and catch a little 4 inch bass or sunfish in a matter of minutes. The kids love it! Of course we throw them back so daddy can catch them when the grow up :-)

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is one of the few cottages on the lake with a sleepover boathouse - Even the McMansions cannot build this close to the water.

SOMETHING FOR ALL OF US!

  • 5 of 5
This rental gave us more than we could have expected. First impression, the place was spotless. We've stayed many places and they are buggy and cob-webbed. Not here, it is a beautiful knotty pine getaway. The lake is quiet and clear of weedy vegetation that gets in the way of relaxing swimming. The main house is roomy and the boathouse is comfy. We all had a place to relax. My 75 year old mother in law had her own room with a bathroom, so that she could step away from the excitement when she wanted. Our 9, 8 and 5 year olds swam and fished every day. The location is remote enough to be a getaway, yet close enough to go on day trips to Mackinac Island or Sleeping Bear dunes. Great summer vacation!

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect spot for our first-ever extended family vacation as adults. The cottage was clean, comfortable, and very well-equipped. My brother brought his boat and the lake yielded several days of successful fishing for our fishermen. There are a lot of steps down to the lake which could prove challenging to some people but we knew that going in. We couldn't have been more pleased. Thank you for some wonderful memories.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was just as pictured and truly delightful. It was nicely furnished and well equipped both for daily needs and family fun. The owner was always helpful in answering questions and made suggestions for nearby restaurants and shopping. The lake was shallow around the dock and very safe for young children. We hope to go back next year and I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a clean, good place to rent. You won't be disappointed.

Fabulous Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
We had 2 families stay here and it was a wonderful vacation. The cabin and the boathouse provide ample space for 2 families. It was very clean when we arrived and it is well maintained. The north side of the lake is a perfect location to get the sun and the beach is shallow enough near the shore for kids to play. We would definitely stay again.

Up North Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our week at the cottage was exactly what we were looking for.... Relaxation, boating, fishing and quiet times around a fire. It's like a scene right out of the movie "On Golden Pond". Loons and all...
The perch fishing was fantastic.... but, the fish fry was even better. This cottage was very spacious, clean and cozy. Next year we're bringing the grandkids.... Thanks Ruth and Rod for sharing your summer getaway....

West Twin Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our family had a very enjoyable week at the cottage on West Twin Lake. The cottage was very clean and cozy up north feel. The swimming was great for small children, shallow and sandy. Our adult children and grandchildren had a great time-something for everyone to do. The owner was easy to work with making all the arrangements. I would rent this cottage again! Thank You!
