This cottage was beautifully renovated from top to bottom in 2013 and is now available for rent. It is spacious, will sleep 6 and features 2 bedrooms plus a sleeping porch. It also has 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. The kitchen/ dining area is roomy and has a nice island and cook top. It is large enough to accommodate your large group. Tastefully decorated with attention to every detail, the cottage exudes warmth and comfort. It comes complete with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful vacation in Mackinaw. It is located 1 block from Lake Michigan and a short walk to Mackinaw City. You can walk to the Mackinac Bridge, Fort Michillimackinac, Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse, and to the restaurant/shopping area of downtown. They say “location is everything” and you won’t find a better location to enjoy all that Northern Michigan has to offer.
If you are interested in star-gazing, the cottage is located just 3 minutes from the Headlands - recently designated as a 'DARK SKY PRESERVE' - one of only 10 locations in the USA! This is given to a few special areas that are free of artificial light. The night sky is breathtakingly beautiful!
In the winter, you can be on the slopes of Nubs Knob or Boyne Mountain in less than 30 minutes. If you prefer snow-shoeing or x-country skiing, the area offers the Headlands, Wilderness State Park or Mill Creek - all minutes away. The beautiful Mackinaw to Midland snowmobile/bike trail is easily accessed from the driveway of the cottage. Interested in a little more adventure? Try a dog-sled ride through the wilderness from a local musher! Also a great base-camp for hunters.
In the spring, birdwatchers gather from all over the country to catch a glimpse of the incredible hawk migration. You can view it from the spacious yard!
In the summer, you can be soaking up the sun on one of Lake Michigan’s most beautiful sandy beaches in 3 minutes. Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Historic Fort Michilimackinac and the Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse are all within walking distance – as is Shepler’s Ferry dock – the ultimate transportation to Mackinac Island.
In the fall, take the color tour through the “tunnel of trees” or enjoy spectacular scenery in the Upper Peninsula, an easy drive across the mighty Mackinac Bridge. There’s nothing quite like the sound of bugling elks during mating season at Pigeon River or the mysterious call of the loon on a quiet lake. It’s all here! Hunt, fish, hike, canoe, bike – you can do it all or you can just relax by the cozy fireplace with a good book.
