My family have moved to Grosse Ile, MI from California more than five years ago. We love the seasonal changes and all the beautiful scenery we find here. We hope our guests will love this unique water front cottage as much as we do.
Andy purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Andy chose Grosse Ile
Although we live in a larger home on the island, but we love this little cottage for its unique setting with large open yard all around and a very private fishing dock tucked in a small bay all of its own.
What makes this Cottage unique
Kayak rental is available at Riverside Kayak Connection across from the island. They offer hourly rental and lessons from Elizabeth Park.

Great location, nice comfortable cottage .
We had a great stay ! Cottage perfect for 4 adults.
Cute cottage on the water
Very nicely kept house that is on the water. What I would say is if you are going in winter, you may want to consider 4wheel drive. Driveway is long and the road was plowed later in the day. Beautiful area, quiet!
We really enjoyed our stay!
The home was very nice and as fishermen the location on the river was excellent. Our host was also very friendly.
Homey and cozy. Great place to hang out with family.
This place had everything you need and some things we didn't. It was just like being at home. Cozy and comfortable. Quiet area and beautiful nature filled environment. We will definitely stay again!
Great place to stay on Grosse Ile
Andy and Diana's house is on the northwest corner of GI. The large, private lot fronts on the river. I believe the home was around when I was on GI in the late 1950s and 60s. It is well maintaned, clean and comfortable and well provisioned. Andy even left a bag of coffee to use in the Bialetti espresso maker. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay on GI if you are not visiting friends or relatives. It is a much better alternative than other rental rooms which I have tried over the years.

Andy and Diana's place is a small home on the West River side and north end of GI. I am sure that the house was there in the late 1950s and early 60s when I was was in high school, but it is well maintained, very comfortable and nicely furnished. Andy even left me a bag of Starbucks coffee to use in the Bialetti espresso maker. In addition, the lot is large, very private and fronts on the river. I would highly reccomend this property over the Bishop Cottage B&B or the Pilot House (both of which I have stayed in) if you are visiting GI and not staying with friends or relatives. It is more expensive, but well worth it.
Lake Erie Metropark is just 8 miles south of the property where there is long stretches of lake front picnic area. The Henry Ford museum and Greenville village in Dearborn is also a popular attraction and we highly recommend a visit.
