Perfect location/perfect price

  • 5 of 5

A few buddies and I stayed at this location for Labor Day weekend. We chose this property primarily due to its locality to the beach and the state park. The walk to the beach was only a few minutes.

The house was very accommodating for 6 men and was well stocked. We all have a great time!

Quiet, very private home in the woods by the beach

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying at this house with family. It is on a wooded dirt road a few hundred yards from a private beach, which you get access to. Was a great setup for us because with kids of a variety of ages, we often found ourselves stopping back for snacks, bathroom runs, etc. Having three bedrooms was a nice perk as well, and we used one of the bedrooms during the day as a screened-in porch - great place to read a book while avoiding the mosquitoes at night! Also, be sure to take a walk to the bakery on the main road, their breakfasts and treats were a big hit.

Overall, excellent value for our money and we will be coming back.

The cottage is very welcoming & comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful place to stay in the beautiful woods of Michigan! The cottage was very clean and the kitchen was well-equipped. We had plenty of comfortable bed space and really had a fantastic girlfriend reunion weekend. The beach down the road is spectacular too. Thanks for everything!
