Why Carolyn Damstra chose Northern Michigan

We knew this was 'The Country's Most Beautiful Place' long before it got that moniker. The air is fresher, lakes crystal clear, and the quiet will bring a lasting peace.

What makes this cottage unique

Location is great! Something for everyone--beach time, hiking, biking, kayaking, wine touring, or just relaxing on our hammock. The cottage is simple but still has everything you need to be comfortable.

Great location with old school charm!

  • 4 of 5

We had two couples stay at the Mugg Cottage for a weekend. The host was very polite and communicated everything needed to make this a wonderful stay. The location was great! Although not right on the water, it was directly across from a park with water access. 20 minutes from Traverse City roughly and very close to Sleeping Bear Dunes. We would rent again!

Charming Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

The Mugg Cottage was the perfect spot for a quiet weekend get away. It had a homey, rustic feel near many scenic locations. Highly recommended for an opportunity to disconnect from the world, connect with nature and loved ones. We thoroughly enjoyed a day hike to pyramid point and cooking smores by the wood stove at night :)

Cute and quiet

  • 4 of 5

House was clean and easy to find (in my opinion). Owner was quick to respond if you had any questions-BRAVO! Loved the location and scenery. Summer is the best time to rent this property for sure but it was so gorgeous in the fall with all of the colors. house has cooking utensils but is bare besides that (no butter, sugar, coffee, etc.) plenty of fire wood for the pit. House heats up quickly! Overall my fiancé and I enjoyed our stay here and would recommend people to go there. Thank you again for letting us stay. BEAUTIFUL!

Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Mugg Cottage for a ladies weekend. The house was the perfect size for the 6 of us (everyone had a bed) and it had all the things we needed. It was about a 30 minute drive to Traverse City and has a great ice cream parlor/ shop down the street. The lake access at the park across the street was great! I would definitely rent this property again!

Lovely little cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely little cottage - I liked everything about it - not to modern and not to rustic - if I could I would like to spend all summer there. I am cyclist - so on bicycle you can get everywhere in 30 minutes, roads are bike friendly and bike/ hiking trails are awesome - Will come back for sure :)
