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

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.

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.

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.
