Sweet Vintage Cottage
I rented this cottage for a six night getaway on my own. It was a delightful place to stay, perfectly sized for me. The beach front was a big factor in my choosing this place, just a short walk on a pay. Due to high water, the beach pretty much wasn't there, accept for an area that had two chairs, a sun umbrella, a fire pit and a bench (which was tucked back in the shade). I did walk down the shore a bit and found a small stretch of sand to walk on and pick rocks. I sat for hours watching the waves from the comfy chairs and playing in the sand, sifting for stones. The weather was varied so I got to see Lake Michigan in its many guises.
The cottage itself was charming, with a cool vintage vibe. The walls are pine; this plus the shade from trees meant the cottage was rather dark. Yes, lots of lights and lamps, which helped some. But lots of dark spots.
The bed was very comfortable. All the windows worked well so it was nice to open the cottage up to capture the lake breeze and hear the waves. The sofa by the window smelled quite musty--I just used the other one, a cool rattan piece with lots of cushions. The cottage decor was a fun blend of old and new.
This may sound silly, but I really appreciated the well marked trash and recycling bins. Most rental places I've stayed in don't have any info about recycling, which varies widely, leaving me unsure of what to do. The instructions for handling trash and recycling upon departure were very easy and clear.
Sally, the property manager was so great! Very easygoing and welcoming. She helped me find an oak tree (I collect acorn caps for fairy hats) on one of the other properties, which meant I had a fun mini tour riding in a golf cart! She knew interesting history about this and the other cottages--it's a kind of enclave, with multiple cottages and homes.
I was sad to leave this morning--I really enjoyed my time here, which was reminiscent of my childhood summers on Lake Huron.
We just wanted a little fun weekend getaway, and this place exceeded our expectations. Although it was cold, we had a blast. The fire pit by the water, roasting marshmallows, trying to fish lol, plus the view made this getaway everything our little family needed for a weekend. We easily could have stayed for the week. Even our bulldog rates this place five stars. He had more fun than all of us! Thanks Sally!
Charming little cottage on lake Michigan that my family really enjoyed. Very private area with access to the beach/water. Liked it so much we will return again!
Quick Weekend Getaway
Fantastic short weekend stay. The house was cute, clean and stocked with everything you need. The property was even better. A few feet to the beach and fire pit. Sally was very accommodating also. Will be back.
Easter weekend cabin stay
We really enjoyed the cabin. Made for a nice weekend getaway. Clean and well equipped. Nice to be able to walk right down to the beach. Close proximity to a nice state park as well as towns like Port Washington. Would like to return again in the summer.
Great start to a New year
