Our cottage is centrally located between Grayling, Traverse City and Boyne Mtn.
Beach area has gently sloping sandy grade for easy access into the water.
The cottage offers some privacy being set back from the other cottages a bit.
We used this cottage as a base for a grouse hunting trip to the area. It was a great place to relax for two tired hunters at the end of a day. The beds were comfortable and there is plenty of room for our gear. The kitchen was well stocked and the wi-fi was convenient. We will definitely consider a return trip.
The cottage was extremely clean and well stocked with everything you need. We are a family of 5 and had more than enough room. The dock was fun and our kids loved playing in the water. Beautiful setting. The owners are super accommodating and helpful!
We were very happy with the cottage for our Memorial Day weekend get away. The cottage was very clean and well furnished. The cottage is very spacious with room to relax, sleep, grill and well stocked kitchen to make meals with several seating options for meals. The 2 bathrooms were all up to date. The deck, beach chairs, fire pit and dock all allow guests to relax outside. The water is nice with sandy beach around dock easy to walk in, swim, and do many water sports. The neighbors were friendly and we felt welcome to Manistee Lake. The gas station was close and has a small grocery and supply area. The Pizza and Ice Cream are popular and a great option for a quick dinner when you arrive. We will rent again and recommend this property. The owners were very helpful and made us feel welcome. We look forward to our next trip back to Manistee Lake and this property.
This is just a wonderful and spacious cabin. We have stayed 3 times on Manistee lake, and this is the best place yet. We fished, hunted small game, played golf and went gambling, all with a short drive from the lake.
Our stay at the cottage was wonderful and we wished we could have stayed longer. It is extremely clean and tidy with everything you could possibly need. It is decorated very nicely and is so cozy and feels like home. Although it was too cold when we were there to go in the water, the beach out into the lake looked very nice and sandy. It is in a great central location to go and do many things. Owners were nice to deal with. Would definately recommend, we hope to get to stay there again!
The home had a large open living space with windows all around so you could enjoy the view, but came equipped with nice blinds so you could have your privacy too. All of the furniture was very comfortable. The home was well stocked with anything you might need on a daily basis. The home was very well kept. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The view from the fire pit which was right in front of the dock was beautiful. I'm already planning my next stay!
