Our goal at Secord Memories is just that- we want you to take your own memories back home with you!
The setup of our place is very unique, it has the main cottage and a bonus detached bunkhouse. One could say it's a two for one! Both places are newly decorated in modern décor.
The cottage has a fully stocked kitchen, Direct tv satellite in the living room, master bedroom with queen sized bed plus second bedroom has a full bed and a twin. All towels and linens are provided. The cottage sleeps six ( an addition twin bed is located in the footstool in living room) In the kitchen is a frig with water and ice located on the door, dishwasher ,stove and microwave. All pots and pans, dishes and utensils included. All you have to bring is your food. The second bedroom has a DVD TV, and a few family movies . Please bring along any others you might want to watch. For your comfort the place has central heat and AC. You will find a full bath in the cottage. There is no land line phone but a brand new cell tower less than a mile away.
The bunkhouse, which is located directly behind the cottage sleeps six. It has two futons and a set of double bunk beds, a kitchenette and a half bath. A TV with a DVD player and a PS2 including many games is in the bunkhouse for our guests to use .
The laundry room can be found in this area too, along with an ironing board and iron. Inside this building is a storage area which is open to our guests. Three bicycles and many fishing poles along with family outside games are located here. Plus, if you find the need , a workbench with basic tools is available to you. This building also has a furnace and a window air conditioner for your comfort. You will find a half bath located in the bunkhouse.
Outside to enjoy our wonderful views we have supplied a gas grill and two picnic tables and a fire pit for campfires.We have added a swing so you can relax and enjoy the breath taking views of Secord Lake. To get into the Secord fun you will have full use of a 21 foot pontoon boat with a 9.9 trolling motor, a 4 seater paddle boat(life jackets supplied) plus dock space to bring your own boat. Secord Memories is a waterfront home located on 90 miles of Secord Lake. That's a lot of miles to bank those memories! One of the favorite spots on the lake are the shallow areas . Boats normally anchor the boats and spend hours swimming, playing water games and meeting others. It's a great time for all! For our guests that enjoy walks , the road views are just as pretty as the water views. Hunters will be thrilled that state land can be found just 3 miles from Secord Memories.
We have been working very hard to improve the landscape and hope our guests are as pleased as we are with the results.
Please join us and be prepared to take your own memories home.
Memories always keep us in touch !
Our family has had a cottage on Secord Lake / Tittabawassee River for over 50 years. 5 generations have enjoyed boating, skiing, tubing, fishing, snowmobiling, hunting. etc. etc. in the relaxed atmosphere of 'up north on the lake'
John and Sherry Johnson purchased this cottage in 2012
We purchased this property from our long time friends and neighbors a few years ago and enjoy the memories that came with it. We know they would be pleased that their place can now bring memories to so many.
Our goal is to provide an enjoyable and affordable stay with amenities that would require only food and clothes when using our cottage.
We just spent the last week (8/28-9/4) at Secord Memories and had a wonderful time! Both the house and bunk house were fully stocked with everything we needed. We simply unpacked our clothes and food, and were relaxing on the beach! Our 2yo daughter and 2 dogs really enjoyed the sandy beach area and the Pontoon and Paddle boat were big hits as well! The phrase "Best Day EVER!" was said several times by our little one, which will be a treasured memory, along with all the pictures that were taken.
John and Sherry, you have a beautiful home and we truly appreciated everything that was provided for us on our stay. We look forward to spending many more Summers up on the lake with our growing family!
We had a wonderful time and the house and bunkhouse was everything more than we expected! Our family had a great time and many memories to cherish. Sherry and John are wonderful people and we will miss them. Can't wait till next year.
Once again this was a wonderful experience. This was our third year at Secord Memories and every year we make more memories. The kayaks were a big hit. Every year we wonder what great new things we will find. All my grandchildren enjoyed the fishing. We had a great fish fry again. The happy faces on all the kids and adults showed the good times. I do not know how many times everyone jumped off the dock into the river. All day every day. Everything we could possibly need or want was there.It is so nice to come and just move in without having to do any cleaning. Everything was spotless. Sherry and John are just a joy to be around. We had a fire every night and enjoyed watching the stars. It was indeed a 5 star vacation. We have already booked next year.
Our visit was great and we are looking forward to another summer at the cottage/bunkhouse. It was enjoyed by all of us. 5 stars to you john and sherry! see you next year!
This cottage was clean, modern and had just about everything you could possibly need but it lacked enough storage for our personal possessions such as food and toiletries, especially since we had a party of 7. We had the great pleasure of meeting the owners, John & Sherry who where very generous, sweet, & trusting.The neighbors where friendly and Secord Lake was beautiful! All this makes me feel terrible, complaining about anything, but... This lake is a very popular place, very busy and there are no wake restrictions. Therefore the dock provided for our use could use some serious updating. It was very wobbly and I thought we'd all end up in the lake. It wasn't the greatest for tying our boat to either and we came away with some serious scratches on it. The outside area of the cottage was also a disappointment. The lawn consisted of alot of foot tall weeds and was seriously overgrown. The abundant pine trees continually dropped "stuff" all over the ground, the furniture and anything else you had outside, making it necessary to sweep & clean each time you wanted to sit outdoors. I don't know how most people spend their time at the lake, but I prefer to be outside so the outside space is as important as the inside. If the outside space was cleaned up I would definitely stay again, but with a smaller party. With 4 kids, we had way too much "stuff" and no where to put it.
Our family of 4 absolutely loved this cottage! Our boys, 12 & 14, really enjoyed having their own space in the bunk house! The cottage was beautiful inside & out. Having kayaks & a paddle boat readily accessible was great as well. Our 8 year old Jack Russell Terrier loved biting at the waves & fetching sticks out of the water. We will definitely be back!
