Enjoy this comfortable 3 bedroom cabin resting on 300 feet of frontage! Just a short drive to the quaint resort town of Curtis. The cottage is all on one level, with a high living room ceiling. The great room is wide open as you watch the beautiful lake at every angle. A perfect place for your fishing or family get-away.

Large windows let you gaze out at the peaceful lake at every turn. Full, easy access to the washer/dryer available during your stay. It just makes your vacation with kids easier.

Enjoy the brand new gas grill this year as well.

Large birch trees surround the cabin. Plenty of space for your family to enjoy outdoors.

Swimming: The dock has a ladder attached to it at the end for swimming. You can swim around the end of the dock. it is fairly shallow out 30-40 yds or so. (3-5 ft deep). The bottom is silty sand with rocks but the rocks are generally round. There are also 3 public beaches in the Big Manistique Lake area.

About Freshwater Vacation Rentals

Mr. Donner was from downstate Michigan, He took an early retirement from Ford. He bought a marina on Big Manistique. He wanted to bring people he knew up to Big Manistique Lake. The parents of the 5 brothers who now own the cottage were friends of Mr. Donner and purchased this cottage on Donner Road. The original cottage was torn down and replaced with the current cottage about 20 years ago.

Freshwater Vacation Rentals purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Freshwater Vacation Rentals chose Curtis

Right on the lake with a large deck. It is a comfortable place for a family. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 7 beds and cable tv make it an ideal place to spend time together.

What makes this cottage unique

Very private. Large deck overlooking the beautiful Big Manistique Lake. You wouldn't know it, yet there are 'neighbors' about 300 feet away, through the trees. It feels like you are alone at the cottage, and that the lake is yours! Plus, we love offering full cable TV for those rainy days.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time at Lake Manistique! Cant wait to go back, the house was perfect; clean, well kept and well stocked with items to keep it clean despite bringing the dogs! In fact, I think I would like to live there...

The home was very clean and perfectly located. We loved the wood burning stove. Good cable and good books to read. Our siberian huskies had a wonderful time roaming around the poperty and swimming in the tranquil lake. There was plenty clean towels and blankets, and plenty of cleaning products to keep the home nice and neat. Also provided laundry detergent, which was a bonus! We purchased organic beef from the feed store down the street, which was a perfect price, so we bought it bulk! The poperty was exactly has listed though only better; the pic's provided don't do the home justice. We are planning on returning. Property owners were very kind to us, and permitted us to stay longer than planned! We made friends with other Up'ers at Repulican victory parties, as they were warm and welcoming.
