Sports & Adventure Activities
A healing and relaxing stay in Arcadia
My friend and I (also my pup) booked this property to get away from the loud city of Chicago. Tina was so helpful and patient while trying to make the reservation. I had a previously bad experience with another owner not being upfront about pet conditions, and Tina and the Butterfly Cottage really made up for that. The view of the lake was breathtaking! The location is perfect for day trips; you can find smaller towns within a half hour radius and larger cities within an hour. Thanks for the get away! The dog and I will definitely be back soon.
Wonderful even if the weather doesn't cooperate!
My girlfriend and I booked this lovely cottage for a weekend getaway with our dog. The weather was a bit rainy but the place is cozy and the views are still amazing. The beach is wonderful for humans and dogs alike. The owners are incredibly nice and helpful, and we had a blast talking and laughing with them. We will definitely book again so we can explore the hiking and biking in Area.
U guys were awesome! Love Sadie! Wished the weather would have been better, but it certainly didn’t dampen your spirits in the least! U certainly enjoyed the “ Up North” experience! Thanks for the positive feedback... priceless!
Clean cottage, serene setting, fantastic owner
The absolutely perfect relaxing vacation for me and my fiance'. The setting is absolutely serene. We walked the beautiful beach and never saw a soul and just enjoyed the beautiful surroundings with our dog.
On Sunday, we enjoyed going to Trinity Lutheran Church in Arcadia. Very cute traditional Lutheran Church.
The cottage was very clean and tidy and the owner could not have been more friendly. The owner went above and beyond her duty for customer service.
We will definitely be back to visit this lovely cottage and owner.
Thank you for your comments, I really appreciate your taking the time to give a review.
TAKE NOTICE - WOW RENTAL PROPERTY!!!
Got to know the owners - what a wonderful family!! This property was VERY easy to reserve, don't understand the previous comments (renter communication issue?). BEAUTIFUL SUNSET beach!! We enjoyed our wonderful beach walks. So close to Frankfort shopping. Highly recommend Glenwood Inn for dining, we had an outstanding meal. Cute cottage, so close to everything. We took trips to Point Betsie and Sleeping Bear Dunes, nice for families. Would definitely rent again!!
Quiet, cozy retreat on the Big Lake
I have been staying at the Butterfly Cottage for 15 years. Most years one or two times and sometimes more (winter time for cross-country skiing). It is a lovely piece of heaven on beautiful Lake Michigan. The cottage is cozy and inviting and through the years has been continually upgraded and made even nicer. I live downstate close by Lake MI and have watched our beautiful lake change with the seasons...water is high now and the owner has made getting to the private beach as accessible as possible. The owners are unbelievably accommodating and gracious hosts and will do everything to make sure your stay is exactly what you are expecting and need. I would and have recommended the Butterfly Cottage to family and friends and have taken many guests with me through the years even our furry ones (they love it too). It is a wonderful, private, relaxing spot and has been my salvation and refuge many times over the years....may you enjoy it as much as I have....blessings from the Butterfly Cottage. Thank you, Tina!
As usual... U r Awesome! Thanks for your wonderful comments! Tina
Cozy, quiet and quaint get away!
A hidden gem! It was great being the last house on the street and nothing for miles! Awesome deck to spend watching the sunsets and great beach to spend the day walking or just chillin' out! The owner was great and very accommodating! Will be back soon!
Thanks for the great review, I really appreciate it! Tina
