Our family spent two weeks in July 2011 at the Timberline Cottage. The accommodations were excellent. The cottage was clean, comfortable and has a nice "up-north" feeling. Manistee Lake is shallow and warm and great for swimming, skiing, jet-skiing, and fishing. Jason is nice to work with and made very effort to make our vacation memorable. We enjoyed it so much that we have made reservations for next summer.
Beautiful cottage , but no lakefront sandy swimming area. Very dissapointed in the beach? We had to go to another lake to go swimming with our kids. We were promised sandy beach and that we could walk in shallow water forever! No sand to play in, had to walk down a wall of rocks to get into water, lots of seaweed wash up, very small dock, very mucky past neighbors dock.Nice cottage but no good swimming area.
