Southeast Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 6

Waterfront cottage on an all sports lake. This is a year round fun. This is a very quiet setting. Located on a 58 acre clean spring fed lake. Relaxing in the sunroom overlooking the lake, sunbathing or barbecuing on the very large deck, or paddling around the lake in the rowboat, or paddleboat. Sandy bottom lake for swimming. Swimming and boating all onsite. Fun for the whole family. That quiet relaxing get away that we all need! Great fishing lake.

More fun for the whole family. Less than 2 miles from Mt Brighton for skiing in the winter and golf in the summer. Many fine golf courses, restaurants, and shopping very close. State parks nearby. Tour downtown Brighton with it's quaint shops, as well as it's many fine resturants. There is something for everyone.

Close drive to both U-M and MSU for graduations, sports camps and of course the big games!

RIGHT ON THE WATER: This cottage is right on the water. Walk down the steps from your deck and across the lawn and into your own private beach!

Water toys: Floating dock, with the use of a rowboat and paddleboat at no extra charge.

Fire pit: Fire pit down by the water with firewood supplied. Enjoy fires by the beach in the evening. Plenty of chairs to relax and enjoy.

Wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for a Thursday through Sunday get away. Plenty of room to spread out, perfect view of the lake, and all essentials were provided. Even an attached garage! Close enough to Brighton to enjoy walking downtown during the Christmas season!

The setting is lovely, however, the cottage did not have the amenities listed. Specifically, there were no sheets for blow up bed. There was only 1 and the listing said 2. There were stained, sparse towels, certainly not enough for 4-6 people. The toilet was broken at one point. The dishwasher and garbage disposal was broken. The garbage was piled and stinky in the garage. The home was not cleaned even though we were charged a cleaning fee. There were crackers in the couch cushions. The umbrella on the patio table was broken. The table was not secured with a weight and fell over. The boat has not been licensed since 2011. There were jumper cables on the boat and a charger, battery needed to be replaced. The cottage could be lovely but was in need of GREAT ATTENTION AND REPAIR. Would not recommend at all!

Owner's Response: I am so sorry our guests were not happy with their stay. I am sorry we had to learn of the problems at the house this way. We have full time people to address these issues, like the garbage disposal, and dishwasher. We were never told of the problems so that they could be fixed. No guests after them have had a problem with any of the items these guest addressed. Everything is working fine except the coffee pot they broke and did not tell us about and had to be replaced, and all of the towels they ruined wiping up the coffee they spilled when they broke the coffee pot. The pontoon boat was not rented by these guests, if they had contacted us to rent the boat they would have been instructed on its use. We are also learning by this review that the boat was used without permission or payment. We do everything to make our guest's stay as pleasurable as possible, I am sorry these guests did not enjoy their stay. we wish they would have contacted us during their stay so we could have addressed their concerns.

This was my first experience with VRBO and went very well. The owner was very responsive to my questions and made the experience a good one. The cottage was a wonderful getaway for us.

A Great Time.

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time! The house is very clean, well equipped and beautifully decorated. My sister had the house next door, and it was beautiful too. We spend most of our time outdoors, plenty of chairs, shade and the lake was great...The guys went fishing and the gals sat by the water and hopped on the pontoon several times, we were really glad that we rented the pontoon, it was a relaxing and enjoyable time for all of us. We also enjoyed a campfire every night. WOW. Do we have to go back to work, was the only negative thing we said all weekend. We will definitely rent here again. I would love to live felt like home. Thank you Bill.

My family and I just stayed here for the week and it was wonderful!!! The cottage is exactly as described and very clean. There is a lot to do. Bill made us feel welcome and wanted to know if we needed anything. Great host and great place to stay. I would love to come back. Great for a small family or a girls weekend or a romantic getaway.
