About Jeanine Michalski

My husband Dan & I are both insurance agents. We have 2 teenagers and we love to travel.

Jeanine Michalski purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Jeanine Michalski chose Lake Ann

This property has been in my family for generations. My grandparents operated a small resort with efficiency cottages in the 1950's and 1960's. This is the last remaining cottage of their resort.

What makes this cottage unique

Our little lake is quiet and peaceful yet only 15 minutes to Traverse City and 20 minutes to Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting-I loved sitting on the deck with either a cup of coffee or glass of wine either planning my day or reflecting on my day. Kayaked almost every day. Lots of fun outings to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Leland, Northport, Old Mission wineries, bike rides and nice trail in Lake Ann off of Reynolds road.

Cute little cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Loved this litle cottage! :) My hubby was thrilled there was A/C & flat-screen w/cable. I loved the screened in porch and patio and pretty plants by the patio! We all loved the lake! We were greeted with gorgeous fresh-cut flowers in a vase that lasted the entire week! :) Everything was as promised. Kayaks, paddle boat, rowboat... We dont fish; rumor was that fishing was great! Kids swam and loved the swim raft... Very quiet and peaceful here! Great for couples! No real beach though which was fine as we spent a couple days exploring beaches near Sleeping Bear Dunes and Glen Arbor. Close to bike trails and Traverse City which we liked too. Biked a lot. :) Owners were very friendly and open to helping if we needed anything (we didn't)... But they still gave us privacy all week! Loved that towels and linens were included... So nice not to have to cart a suitcase full of bed linens and towels with us! My two teens slept on sleeper bed... Wasn't sure going into it if they'd like that; it worked out fine though and they did great! Liked that all of the windows worked. Although this is a small cottage, it is well-organized and there was a storage place for everything. All dishes were provided & clean and plenty of them for all 4 of us. Security deposit refunded quickly. Beautiful and private, we would return again in a heartbeat!! :)

What a lovely week spent in Lake Ann, Mi! The Lone Pine cottage was perfect for our family. We loved the fact we could walk down the steps and head to the lake! The kids loved to go fishing! The fire pit was convenient and perfect for gathering and making s'mores. The cottage has everything we needed to complete our up north get-away! In town is a brewery, pizza place, coffee shop, store, & more. The owners were very friendly & helpful. Thank you for sharing your cottage!

Clean, pleasant, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

My husband, Bart and I had a wonderful time while staying at the Lone Pine Cottage in Lake Ann, Michigan August 6 - 13, 2016, and would certainly recommend Lone Pine to friends. We hope to return again next year. We had everything we needed to be comfortable and self sufficient. It is a perfect, central location to stay if one wants to explore the Lelanau and Benzie Counties. We found it to be very private, quiet and peaceful. Finally, it was very easy and pleasant to communicate with Jeannine and her husband and we appreciate all they did for us.
