East Jordan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Betula Cottage is located on the shores of Lake Charlevoix's beautiful south arm, this authentic cedar log cabin is the picture perfect northern Michigan cottage. Large pine trees shade this private setting only steps from the crystal clear fresh water of this famous lake. The sandy beach and sand bottom of the swimming area invite you to spend the lazy days of summer in the water.

Private dock has 6 feet of water depth at the end. Bring your boat! A large front deck has a gas grill, picnic table, lounge chairs ,round glass table and chairs for total outdoor living. Relax in the hammock strung between 2 large pines or sunbathe on the beach in total privacy.

The large living room is framed by a huge stone fire place built of native stone. Pine floors, cedar log walls and heavy wooden handmade doors complete the look. There is a queen size sofa sleeper, a second couch and numerous soft chairs to pull up in front of the fireplace.

The kitchen is complete in every way and has a breakfast bar that looks out on the lake through a picture window. The bunk room sleeps 4 in two bunk beds with a full size bed in the other bedroom with double closets. A shower, vanity and toilet in the bathroom completes the accommodations.

About Rhett lloyd

Our parents bought Betula Cottage in 1966 and it has been in our family since then. All four children grew up here in the summer and now we bring our children up each summer. We hope you will enjoy the cottage and the lake as much as we do. Welcome.

Why Rhett lloyd chose Northern Michigan

This beautiful cottage has been in our family for over 40 years. My father named it Betula Cottage after the beautiful white birches that grow on the property. Betula is the Latin name for birch. Betula is a very special place to us and has hosted many family reunions and memorable events. We rent it out to our friends, new and old when the family is not here. We hope you will become a part of our extended family as many have over the years. Welcome.

What makes this cottage unique

Swimming, boating, sunbathing, sightseeing, kayaking, canoeing, cycling, hiking.

Great way to start our summer!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Betula cottage Memorial Day weekend and we were not disappointed! I love a "real" log cabin and that describes this property perfectly. It was clean, well stocked and very cozy. You had to walk through one bedroom to get to the other, but that really didn't bother us. The fireplace was awesome and the washer and dryer was nice to have as well. We would definitely stay here again.

Just what we were looking for...

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to find a rental with a cottage feel, on a sandy beach, with some privacy, near a cool city for my husband andI...our 4 year old daughter and our TWO dogs! I had almost given up when I stumbled upon Betula! Thanks to a last minute cancelation, we were able to squeeze in a last minute get away. Even though the first few nights were a bit cold for July, we still got out in the water and made the best of it. Loved all the conveniences (washer/dryer, new grille, dishwasher)...only issue was with the vacuumn... may need to be replaced...but a broom did the trick. Water was so clear...stunning. Perfect! Reminded me of my cottage from childhood. Our dogs were so sad to leave..we all were. We definitely plan to return next summer! Thanks so much for sharing. :)

What a Trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was absolutely gorgeous, every single minute of the vacation was heaven. The Cabin is so cozy and comfortable and just the right size for my husband and I, oh & of course Molly too, our Springer Spaniel/ Poodle Mix...She also loved our stay there. The view of the Lake from the Cabin is magnificent! We did a little Canoeing, I even swam one day, the temperature was in the 70's!! We did a lot of sight seeing and we flew in a small plane around the entire area, wow...so pretty this time of year, especially if you get lucky enough to have terrific weather too! It was great and I would strongly recommend this place for a couple and their dog!!

Wonderful Log Cabin, loved Stone Fireplace and used it. The entire property was very nice and I would recommend it to any one. If we had any questions, the owners, answered them quickly. My cousin mentioned shower didn't drain well but I had no problems. Loved how complete kitchen was and loved deck with umbrella table and chairs. Beach was exceptional, sandy and so nice. Spent my summers as a child on Lake Charlevoix, so would recommend any of nearby towns; Charlevoix, Petosky, Harbor Springs and Traverse City for places to go and eat and day sight seeing. Property is very private and you hardly knew you had neighbors. We have put in a reservation for next year. A very big Thank you to the owners for keeping this property in such fine condition. We had such a good experience and are looking forward to next year. Sandy T.
