Manistee Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bed room, 1 bath cottage, sleeps 6
A wonderful family get-away opportunity! This comfortable, updated cottage has all the comforts of home. Fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, VCR/DVD, Wifi, AC, even an air hose on the side of the garage to fill your beach floaties. The home sits just across the quite scenic drive from our private beach access path. This 200' long path takes you directly to the new stairway (12 steps) down to the beautiful, sandy beach. Spend your day walking for miles in either direction, or soaking in the sun and waves. This quiet beach is miles from the nearest public access point, providing a wonderful, peaceful setting for you and our neighbors. When you get tired of the sun, you can stroll around the 4 acres that the cottage sits on and enjoy Lars Creek and the surrounding wetland. Spend your evenings on the back patio grilling dinner or sitting around the fire pit.
Our cottage has one cozy bedroom with queen size bed and one larger bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds. Both rooms have closets and ceiling fans. Living room is large and comfortable with two couches and two rocking chairs. The wood burning stove in the living room and the knotty pine trim, throughout the house, complete the 'up north' feel of this cabin. Our cottage has a single bathroom with tub/shower. Open the windows to hear the waves or use the AC on those hot summer nights. Linen closet outside of bathroom will be stocked with bath towels and linens...but don't forget to bring your beach towels :) .
Manistee, the Victorian Port City, has so much to offer you on your vacation with historical buildings and Victorian homes, lighthouse and pier. If fishing is your passion, there is Charter fishing or fishing off the pier and public boat launches. If fishing isn't your thing, you can leisurely walk around the downtown shops or along the Riverwalk and see the boats as they enter the channel.
There are restaurants, shopping and the historic Ramsdell Theater. Several golf courses are within a short drive including: Manistee National, Arcadia Bluffs, and Manistee Country Club. If you enjoy paddling the hours away, you can canoe or kayak on the Manistee River. Get 'back to nature' in the Manistee National Forest or Lake Bluff Audubon Society. There is so much to do. You can just relax, but our personal favorite, is walking the dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The Pierce Stocking Overlook is a sight you will never forget, a must see! For those that have money to lose (SMILE), there is Little River Casino nearby that has concerts from famous groups and artists, and a variety of restaurants.
The Northwest section of Michigan is a wonderful place to vacation with things for everyone to enjoy. Check out our web-site for additional info on the cottage and more pictures. www.biglakelittlecabin.com

Why Matt Barnes chose Manistee
This little get-away cottage has everything we love about an up-North vacation, the beach, the woods and the dunes. We could not have asked for more.
