The cottage is just north of the Village of Caseville located on 12 wooded acres with 250 feet of beach frontage on Saginaw Bay 1200 feet from the highway on a private road. Once in a while, early in the morning or late in the evening some deer will visit. We have even seen wild turkeys and a bald eagle or two. It has been our getaway for more than 60 years with the current year round house having been built in the early sixties. There are 3 bedrooms, 1 sofa bed in the breezeway and 1 sofa-bed in the living room .
It is an easy 2 1/2 hour drive from Detroit. Perfect for families who just want to relax, play on the beach and watch the sunset. Sorry No Pets.
A family home: The great thing about our home is the privacy. It is also great for kids with a large lawn for games like bocce ball or just playing catch. The sandy beach is large where kids can play safely away from the water's edge. It is also great for fires at night, marsh mellow and hot dog roasts. There are no rocks in the water or drop offs--just a gradual deepening of 100 yards or more.
Attractions: Caseville has a movie house, several good casual places to eat, plus, in the summer season, boat and kayak rentals, miniature golf, batting cage, bumper boats and a giant slide for non beach activities. There are also boat charters to take full advantage of the perch and near by salmon fishing. There are several public golf courses in the area. The City pier and public beach is a 15 minute walk along the shoreline from our place. Port Austin is a short drive away to add to the list of things to do including 2 fine dining restaurants..
Towels and Linens: Please bring your own towels (bath, hand, kitchen and beach) and sheets & pillow cases. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, silverware and cooking utensils. There will be a $200 refundable damage/security deposit and a non-refundable $50 cleaning deposit.
