Golf courses and Soaring Eagle Casino within a short distance.

The lakefront swimming area has a sandy bottom with a gradual drop off. Fishing includes Bluegills, Perch, Rockbass, Crappie, and Largemouth Bass. There is a free public boat launch approximately one mile away to launch your boat, pontoon or jetski.

For your Mid-Michigan shopping experience and other activities you only need to go to Clare, Houghton Lake, Cadillac or Mount Pleasant.

Want to Hunt Northern Michigan whitetail deer, turkey, and other small game? The Au Sable State Forest and Pere Marquette State Forest only minutes away. Ice fishing produces nice pike as well as other fish.

Absolutely loved this house!! Came here with a couple friends and we were able to enjoy the water, use the grill, and make some fires. The neighbors were all so nice as well, made it feel like home.

A nice place for a family get away.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed this clean, recently refinished cottage. We visited in the middle of the week, and there wasn't too much traffic on the lake, giving us a sense of privacy. It was a very relaxing stay. We fished from the dock and caught and released dozen of small perch, blue-gill, and an occasional bass. The kids played for hours in the shallow water around the dock and enjoyed taking the peddle boat out on the lake. The cottage appears to have been recently refinished and is very comfortable for a family of two adults and three young children.

VERY CLEAN property!

  • 5 of 5

Great anniversary getaway! Small and cozy. We enjoyed our meals on the deck over looking the lake. Fire pit available with fire wood provided. Felt like we were at home. We also brought our canoe and went all over the large lake. Very relaxing vacation! We will be staying here again!

Perfect relaxing getaway for our 10 yr wedding anniversary!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for our 10th wedding anniversary and it was picture perfect. The cottage was immaculately clean, so simple and cute. It had everything we needed. I could've packed so much less than I did lol. It had paper plates, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, towels , cleaning products , toiletries, u name it!

The view was amazing. We spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the weather and view of the water. Very peaceful and relaxing.

Tim (the owner) was very helpful and quick to answer any questions I had.

There was even firewood available for us to use, and we enjoyed a nice fire each night.

If you are bringing kids I would definitely bring toys , games, water toys/floats for them to use. The water is sandy on bottom. The yard is fenced down to the water with nice green grass, perfect for kiddos and bare feet lol.

This cottage is located about 25 minutes from the small town of Clare and about 40 minutes to Mt Pleasant where we went to the golf course restaurant called The Fireside Grille for our anniversary dinner. It had a modern feel, very clean, excellent service , delicious food, and a view of the golf course . They also have a patio to sit outside. It looks small but it was an amazing experience. They even gave us our dessert for free with it being our anniversary. So if you are coming up for a romantic getaway weekend I highly recommend this restaurant.

I have never had such a pleasant experience in traveling as I did staying at this cottage , I could not find one thing wrong with it! Not one cobweb or dust bunny anywhere. I also told my husband that although it was our first time there it felt like home, which doesn't happen often. We would definitely stay again and have already recommended this cottage to family and friends. I could go on and on about the cottage and how perfect it is. We hope to be back again sometime!
