Overview

Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Pulling into the driveway of the newly constructed Perch Lake Lodge, the visitor will be immediately impressed by the character and design of this log home. Stepping onto the front porch, you will be greeted by beautiful etched glass loon doors with sidelights. Loons on the lake will often be seen fishing, and will be heard at any hour making their distinctive loon calls. As you enter through the door, gleaming maple floors and the soaring cathedral ceiling of the great room present you with an inspirational welcome.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped to allow our guests to prepare the finest of meals. The highlight of the kitchen is the custom made knotty pine cabinets and countertops. Perhaps you would rather use the gas grill in front of the walkout, as you sit on the patio, with its spectacular view of Perch Lake. The patio has been designed with the comfort of the guest in mind, as you gather around the fire pit. Once your meal is ready, eat wherever your fancy chooses.......you may not want to leave the patio, so there is a glass table for your convenience or perhaps you may want to enjoy a soaring view of the lake from the deck....maybe you will choose to dine in the dining nook of the great room.

As the evening unwinds, spend some time curled up on the sofa, or relaxing in the oak rocker. You can watch TV, read, or just spend time conversing. This is a place to relax and leave your worries behind.

The master bedroom and bath are located in the rear of the main floor. The king sized bed has the same Park Place mattress used in Fairfield Inn by Marriott. Sleeping on this bed is a truly comfortable experience as you have plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the cool night air entering though windows on two sides of the bed. Awake refreshed and ready to start your day in the spacious shower, which has an insertable seat, if you prefer, or maybe you will choose the oversized jetted tub.

A beautiful log staircase and railing lead to the privacy of the loft, with its own queen sized bed, and yes, it too has a Park Place mattress and a half bath. There is an exceptional view of the lake from the loft, through the character tree.

For additional sleeping and living space, the finished walkout is furnished with a sleeper sofa, TV, and small bathroom. In the rear corner of the walkout there is a game room equipped with a 72 inch, 4 in 1 game table. Guests can play air hockey, ping pong, or pool. The Pere Marquette Trail is about a mile from the lodge and is an ideal place for walking or bicycling, and snowmobiling in winter. Snowsnake Ski, golf, and zip line is only about 15 miles from the lodge. If you wish to fish on the lake, the property managers will advise you, and set up a possible boat rental. They live two doors down the street from the lodge and will help you with any concern or problem that may arise at the lodge. As our guests, you will never feel abandoned once the rental is made.

This is truly an outstanding property on a quiet and peaceful lake setting in rural mid-Michigan

About The Owner

My wife and I bought this beautiful lot on Perch Lake four years ago after an extensive search, and it took two more years to find the right builder to transform Perch Lake Lodge from a dream into a reality.

We are Bill and Jeannie Beaushaw, and we are career educators, teaching in the same high school, and residing in Pearl River, Louisiana, located on the northshore of Lake Ponchartrain in St. Tammany Parish.

I taught social studies 33 years in the local high school, where my entire career was spent. In addition, I was the head girls basketball coach for 19 years, winning 64% of the games I coached and winning numerous state playoff games. My wife taught chemistry and biology for 11 years before obtaining her Masters degree in guidance and counseling, and she has been in that position for the last 20 years.

She was a successful soccer and volleyball coach for several years, before resigning those positions last year. Our son, Derek, is a 2002 graduate and was our valedictorian. In addition he was an all-state cross country runner, qualified and ran the 2 mile in the state outdoor meet as a sophomore, and was a two time all-district second baseman on the baseball team, which reached the state semi-finals his sophomore year.

As we have aged, the heat and humidity of Louisiana summers are harder to deal with. This is why we built the lodge. We wish to share this unique property until we can enjoy it ouselves. We hope you will feel as refreshed and renewed as we did when we left in early July.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2010

Why The Owner chose Michigan

Perch lake is located in the small town of Lake, but is within close proximity to many attractions and shopping. Many public golf courses are within a short drive.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property manager, a neighbor, is immediately accessible to address any concerns.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at the Perch Lake lodge. The cabin was so comfortable, cozy and clean. The wrap around deck was extremely relaxing. The cabin was well supplied with items like towels, cookware, toiletries, blankets, etc. The lake was so relaxing. The water was warm and the beach area was sandy and great for swimming. The community was extremely friendly. We would definitely recommend this place to others. Absolutely amazing!

Beautiful Cabin and Peaceful lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend at Perch Lake. The cabin is beautiful and everything was clean and spotless when we arrived. There were plenty of "extras" available (games, cards, bug spray, towels, sheets, blankets, pots and pans, small appliances, rafts, etc.) so keep this in mind when you pack. The wrap around porch/balcony was a great spot to have dinner and to relax in the lake breeze. The steps were a bit steep but the beach and swimming area was perfect for my two little ones. The lake was pretty quiet during our stay. It's pretty small so I don't imagine there is much in the way of powerboat or jet ski traffic... just what we were looking for. We did rent the pontoon boat for a few days. The boat could use some new carpet and upholstery, but was still nice to use for an evening cruise. We didn't do much fishing, but did manage to catch a few bluegill and crappie without any live bait. Overall, i couldn't have asked for much more.

Thanks for opening your home to our family!

Incredible

  • 5 of 5

Jeannie and her house manager Lori made us feel at home and welcome. We had 5 guys at the lodge to relax after a few tough weeks of work and thoroughly enjoyed being on the lake. What a beautiful house, the experience could not have been better. Thanks so much. Great views, perfect fire pit, warm lake....the list goes on.
