Beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

I'm from MI but have been living in SoCal for many years & I ended up being the one in charge to find a rental , so myself,my mom, brother & his wife plus 2 dogs could go up north for a long weekend during my recent visit :) Well I ended up picking the perfect place ! The cottage is cute & clean and the owner was great as I hadn't been up north in decades and had a lot of questions,) But the lake , the lake is what I'll never forget !! It was so clean & like glass that the clouds reflected in the water :) It was breathtaking! We brought 2 kayaks & used the canoe & it was the perfect lake to do that on ! We had bonfires every night & grilled our dinner to eat outside on the picnic table overlooking the lake . I hope to go back here again ! One tip , try to bring everything you might need with you as there's a cute lil store about 2 miles away that made me feel like I went back in time , they happened to have 1 of everything I needed :) But you'd probably spend an hr & a half going to the closest large grocery store. This lake is a hidden gem in Michigan:)

Cute cottage, great lake!

  • 5 of 5

Cute cottage and great lake! We really enjoyed the canoe, the firepit and the stars at night were beautiful! We had a great time and plenty of room for the family. The dogs had fun too!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house on Homeaway and we couldn't be more happy. The place was exactly as described and comfortably fit the 8 of us. We spent majority of our time out by the lake during the day and by the fire pit at night. The water was warm enough to swim in it even if it was somewhat chilly out. Fishing was great; we caught about 10 fish and although they weren't too big and we had to let them go, it was still very satisfying. The canoe was great. No one had ever been on a canoe so that was a great experience for all of us. One of the days it rained for a bit so we stayed in and played board games and started the 1,000 piece puzzle. Anyways, we're all hoping to come back next year.

Wonderful, quiet, relaxing and beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every second of our stay. The water was warm and crystal clear. Perfect cottage for all types of visits. The lake is extremely quiet and relaxing... Great for enjoying coffee as the sun rises. We brought our young children and it was a perfect set up for little kids that need to take naps during the day. The hideaway bar around the corner has awesome food and the people were very friendly. The only warning I would give someone is to stop in Mancelona or Kalkaska for supplies before you come because the convenience store down the road does not have much stock at all. The owners made it very easy to find and the place was spotless, I can't say enough good about this property. We can't wait to go back... Plus. They provided Robo-cop on VHS. Huge crowd pleaser.

Great laid back cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 3 had a great stay at the cottage. The lake is very small and peaceful. Our son swam all week and loved fishing off the dock. Amazing sunrises every morning. We canoed around the lake each morning and came across the loon we heard each evening. Everything is included in this great place so just bring food!! Only complaint would be we couldn't start one side of the grill, but that was no big deal. Fantastic neighbors (Tina especially) helped out and firewood was provided. Great firepit overlooking lake as well. Would be great to bring a pontoon or jet ski on lake, not a too much traffic. Can't wait to go back!!
