QUAINT LAKEFRONT COTTAGE

Mackinaw City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Large Family Cottage, 3 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6

This quaint and spacious 2-story cottage is ideally situated on Lake Michigan overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge. Owned for 5 generations by the same family, it has been lovingly maintained and reflects the history of the Mackinac area. This 19th century lakeside cottage still offers the quiet and peaceful cottage living of another era but is fully updated to meet the needs of todays traveler. The cottage is located on the water in a peaceful Northern Michigan lakeside neighborhood, just outside of the quaint Village of Mackinaw City. You can walk to town for your evening ice cream cone; walk to Sheplers Ferry to catch a ride to the beautiful Mackinac Island or just sit waterside with a good book. This vintage cottage will take you and your family back to a simpler time with your days spent at the beach and your evenings around a campfire. Mackinaw City is a perfect location to serve as a base camp for all Northern Michigan has to offer. Swim, bike, hike, golf, parasail, hunt or fish - all within minutes. If you like to shop, there's plenty of that. There are lots of specialty shops in Mackinaw City and a day trip from Mackinaw City to Petoskey on US 31 will offer abundant opportunities for antiquing.

The cottage is clean, comfortable and very charming. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a front and back porch. The kitchen is open to the dining room and has a full size refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave. All dishes, pots & pans are included. The dining room comfortably seats 6 people. There is also a laundry room with a washer/dryer. The Living Room opens to the back deck and features a grand stone fireplace, rocking chairs and a comfy sofa for relaxing. This is a place you will want to come back to year after year.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this gem for Memorial weekend and the only thing that we didn't like was that our time there was too short! It has everything you could possibly want and then some. The highlight is the newly added covered porch that faces Lake Michigan and gives fantastic views of the Straits and the Mackinac Bridge. We didn't find it necessary to go anywhere - we just enjoyed the cottage and the Lake. It is vintage and sweet and comfortable yet has all the modern amenities. Amazing water pressure, Wifi, dishwasher? Really! We were told that it's been owned by the same family for 5 generations but it has been so lovingly cared for. It is clean and well equipped and the bed is the master was pure heaven. It had a beautiful view of Lake Michigan and the sweet music of the waves lulled us to sleep. We awoke to the sounds of chickadees and then a symphony of wildlife. We saw a bald eagle, an osprey and a pair of Loons - all from the comfort of the porch. Amazing! I would highly recommend this place and would come back again and again.
