About Matthew

We are from southeast Michigan. I am a teacher and my hubby is an electrician. We have 2 beautiful little girls ages 1 and 5. 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.

Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family getaway and this place had all the comforts of home. We had a family of 7 adults and 6 small children under the ages of 8, and this place was able to accomadate us all. The sandy beach and shallow shoreline made it possible for the kids to have a GREAT time. Definately a place worth visiting.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Starvation Lake. We get together as a family every Memorial Day weekend and have stayed at a lot of different places but this is our favorite. It was a total get away. The beach is very nice and the home had enough room for everyone. We had nine people and didn't even use the upstairs beds. We usually go to a different place every year but this is somewhere we would like to come back to. Matt and Jolie were very nice and helpful. We even got a chance to meet them.

Our perfect family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time during our stay at starvation lake. The house was perfect and had everything we needed and then some. It was very comfortable and cozy and we were able to just relax and enjoy some extra time with family. We can't wait to come back and we were already trying to plan our next trip before we left

Beautiful Lake retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The day after we arrived the area was hit by a tornado, and needless to say it somewhat dampened our spirits. However, after a day or so we were back with power, water, and lots of food. It is a beautiful lake view, and the weather was lovely. We had kayaks, and my family enjoyed them so much in the calm waters. We loved that we were able to take our little dogs, and just relax. Thank you Joli, and Matt for your very prompt replies, and for your kindness.

Peace and Serenity, Away from it all!!

Planned a surprise 50th birthday party at the hide-away bar (within walking distance) for my husband. Everyone in our group had an amazing time, this cottage is beautiful, the lake and beach are beautiful, and the peace and quiet......well, what more could you ask for. I would absolutely recommend this property.
