Quaint Summer Vacation Cottage on Beautiful Duck Lake in Springport Michiga
average rating of 4.4 based on 5 reviews

Worked great for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable. Some would consider small but our family of 6 is used to small and we interact more when we can't go hideaway. One of our adult children did sleep in the couch so I would call this a 5 adult sleeper but one could fit more younger kids upstairs. Overall, being on the water in a cute community and not too far from other things was exactly what our family needed.

Fun Family Time At Duck Lake

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed ourselves at this quaint Duck Lake cottage. The cottage was clean and well maintained. Five people were plenty here as it is small, but it met our needs. Wifi was missed, but it was nice at the same time not to have to be "connected" and relaxation and conversation took its place. As long as showers are spaced out, then every guest will have hot/warm water!! Marta was attentive to our questions, concerns, and requests which we greatly appreciated. The deck was great and was the draw for our family. We relaxed, ate meals, played games, laughed and made memories on that deck. The lake is shallow next to the dock which would be great for small children to play and have fun. If your family is looking for a relaxing quaint get away this cottage is for you!!

Relaxing place to enjoy a week on the water.

  • 4 of 5

We chose this location for the size of the lake and the cottage feel. We had family flying in from Oregon, and the close access to Detroit was helpful. We spent each morning with coffee on the deck and ended the day in the same place enjoying the quiet waters. This lake was not highly congested with fishermen and boaters and provided a great week away that was just what we desired. Marta was very responsive when we had a concern about one of the appliances.

Thank you!

Comfortable vacation cottage

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Duck Lake cottage. The cottage had basic necessities covered. The cottage was clean and comfortable. WiFi was definitely missed. We survived without cable. We enjoyed the deck tremendously. Having the grill was great and the pier to the lake. It was great that it was shallow . Our grandchildren were able to swim despite the cool weather. The area was peaceful. Cottage was great for small groups. Large groups could be a challenge with small hot water tank and space. The cottage met our needs. Thank you for a great stay.

Comfortable cottage set on a beautiful scenic lake

  • 5 of 5

I visited the cottage on Duck Lake with my boyfriend and a group of our friends to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday.

We arrived late Thursday night and stayed until Sunday. We are from the Chicagoland area and so this was a perfect distance to visit for a long weekend. The lake was clean and calm. We took advantage of the fire pit and roasted marshmallows. We grilled out and enjoyed a fabulous BBQ dinner one night. Swimming off of the dock was great! The water is shallow pretty far out which is nice for kids or just wading in the water. Sleeping arrangements were a little tight for 4 couples but yet still comfortable. The neighbors were also Super friendly and even came over to point out the bald eagle that lives near by! Such a cool sight to see! Marta the property owner was great! She answered every question I had kindly and her responses were always very prompt. I did rent linens and they were clean and well organized.

We loved every minute of our trip and would recommend visiting! We hope to maybe book again in the future!
