About Matthew

We are from southeast Michigan. I am a teacher and my hubby is an electrician. We have 2 beautiful little girls ages 3 and 7. We have a cottage on Starvation Lake and have made so many fond memories. Our family and friends have rented these rental cottages in the past. We are now the new proud owners and look forward to offering other families the opportunity to come and build their own family memories.

Matthew purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Matthew chose Northern Michigan

We are the new proud owners and can't wait for you and your family to build fond memories on Starvation Lake. Right out in front of the cottages is one of the best fishing holes on the lake! The lake is stocked with Rainbow Trout, Large and Small Mouth Bass and many pan fish. All sports lake, so bring your water toys. The beach is beautiful and lake has a nice sandy bottom.

We proud ourselves in having a very clean cottage with all your families needs.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is one of the only areas on the lake you can conveniently walk right onto the beach, no long stairs to climb up and down. The lake is clear with a sandy bottom. Enjoy the wild life to include loons, deer, fox and occasionally eagles. If you like to walk, you can walk the perimeter of the lake approximately 3 miles or walk the road around the lake and it is approximately 5 miles. HUNTERS, State property begins right out the driveway.

Great place for family get away!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage before and always enjoy our stay. It might not have the best wifi, but we always have the best of laughs and memories. The lake is great for boating, swimming and fishing. The location is centrally located for trips to Traverse, Charlevoix or Boyne. We always enjoy our stay and will be back another time.

We really enjoyed staying here. There was plenty of room to accommodate our needs and the pool table was a hit. There was plenty of room for parking which worked well for trailers. The lake was excellent for ice fishing. Definitely one our favorite places we have had our annual trip.

Great family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at this rental was amazing. The owners were very easy to work with and responded very quickly. The rental was equipped with many toys for the kids, a dock for our boat, games for the family, and very well furnished overall. The home was very clean and recently remodeled. The home was very comfortable, a great setup, and lots of room. Would highly recommend this home!
