Lake City Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 10 Sleeps
Wake up to a quiet, serene sunrise shining across a peaceful lake of glass. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake while the rest of the world wakes up around you. This northern Michigan cottage is the perfect retreat for you and your family to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Spend a week relaxing and recharging while enjoying all the amenities of up north living.
The cottage is chalet-style and located in a family-friendly neighborhood 3 miles from Lake City, MI. It's located on the southwest side of the lake which is the very best side to find the perfect waters for skiing. Cottage has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Two bedrooms contain queen bed, one has two twin beds and a full bed. There is also a pull-out couch in the living room for a total of 10 sleeping areas. Outside, beyond the deck, there is a fire-pit that’s perfect for an end-of-the-day wind down over s’mores and your favorite nightcap. While the kitchen if fully stock, we’ll guess that you’ll much prefer cooking dinner on the grill outside and enjoying it on the picnic table. If you need a break from the gorgeous lake, take a leisurely stroll or bike ride through the quiet neighborhood where you're sure to get friendly waves from locals and other vacationers alike.
Packing is easy for your trip. Just bring your clothes as the cottage is fully furnished with washer/dryer, stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, popcorn popper, dishes, linens & bath towels.
Spend your day on the lake. Lake Missaukee is the #2 recreational lake in Michigan. See for yourself that large, clear waters with a sandy bottom. Take advantage of everyone sleeping in with a 7 am ski over a lake of glass. Or enjoy a good book on the private 75’ of lake-frontage. Dock up to your own private dock in between water-skiing, tubing, or a lazy crawl around the large lake. Lake is also stocked with walleye, bass and many other fish for the avid outdoorsman. While a watercraft is not included in your rental, there are local places where you can rent speedboats, pontoons, kayaks or paddleboards.
The cottage is located 3 miles from Lake City where you’ll find a quaint, small northern Michigan town. Here you’ll find all the amenities you could possibly need, such as a grocery store, banks, restaurants/bars, churches and shopping.

About Jim VanderLaan
We have lived in Lake City all our lives. My wife and I have been married a wonderful 40 years and have raised 4 children. Most of our summer was spent on Lake Missaukee skiing and tubing so we can attest to the awesomeness of the lake! Our days are spent now 'raising' our 3 year German Shorthair Pointer, Saide and spoiling our 4 grandsons.

This cottage is located on the most ideal side of the lake. As locals, we can vouch for the location as well as the town. This is the perfect property for your up-north vacation spot!
What makes this cottage unique
We feel in love with the lake first. But once we saw the sunset from the deck of this cottage we knew this was the place for us! The sunrise is also worth the early morning wake-up call.
