We saw this cottage and fell in love with it! Now this is where we enjoy taking our children and making memories!

Joanna Hackert purchased this cottage in 2013

Onekama, Michigan is known as the town of two lakes. The cottage is located on Portage Lake which you are also minutes from driving your boat to Lake Michigan from Portage Lake. Both lakes offer outstanding fishing! Plus the cottage is located on the scenic M22 highway which brings you to many Michigan attractions that are close for you to explore!

GREAT LAKE FRONT COTTAGE..BIG, CLEAN AND COMFY!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week at this cottage! It was perfect for our girls kayaking week. It accommodated the 8 of us comfortably. Great location for kayaking many places. Portage lake out the channel to a very calm lake Michigan to see a beautiful sunset. The Manistee river, Pine and even the Pere Marquette rivers. We also spent a day in Manistee shopping and kayaking off the beach. The cottage was very clean and well stocked. The owner was very helpful with info and answers to questions. We would definitely go back!

GREAT COTTAGE, GREAT LAKE, GREAT OWNERS, PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE NEIGHBORS

  • 3 of 5
Everything about the cottage, the property and the lake (Minus the fact that the dock is under construction) were great. However the people that owned the cottage next door seemed disgruntled from the second of our arrival. Their passive aggressive behavior was just enough to make me not want to return to this cottage. I cannot stress how uncomfortable they made us feel by just enjoying the property and the lake, it got to the point where we felt we needed to whisper to each other.

I feel bad for the owner of this cottage as they were nothing but courteous and great and as mentioned the cottage was perfect.

JUST EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
What a delight it was to be the first renters at this lovely Portage Lake cottage. The descriptions and photos don't to justice to peacefulness of this summer cottage. Its a perfect walking distance into the town of Onekama for ice cream or music in the park, and just 15 minutes from the beautiful Lake Michigan beach in Manistee. We spent a day kayaking on the Manistee river and that was only 30 minutes away.

I was a bit concerned that the 1.5 bathroom situation would be problematic but it worked out just fine for the eight of us. The weather was perfect for our 10 day stay and though the upstairs of the cottage got warm in the afternoons, it cooled down to pleasant sleeping temps every evening.

The kitchen is generously equipped including a crock pot and an indoor grill. The pots and pans are in good condition and make cooking simple and quick. It was great to have the washer and dryer.

There's only a small beach area at the cottage but it was big enough for a fire pit and s'more making. The water level was perfect for our kids ages 5 - 15.

Josie has been delightful to work with. She has answered all of our questions in a timely manner and made us feel most welcome. We hate to leave -- and hope to return soon!
