About Lisa

We own two cottages at Vineyard Lake, and have enjoyed the lake for many years. Our two children, ages 23 & 28, have many fond family memories at the lake. We call it our "little piece of heaven"!

Lisa purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Lisa chose Southeast Michigan

The cottage has been a convenient & relaxing family retreat. The lake is shallow & clean - perfect for all ages! It's a great place for swimming and plenty of quality family time!

What makes this cottage unique

Other than just relaxing at the lake, one of the things we enjoy most are the beautiful sunsets and relaxing by the fire at night. Roasting marshmallows & making smores have become a tradition. Children love climbing the ladder up to to the sleeping loft. It's a great area where they can watch movies and play cards or board games - like their own "clubhouse"! Overall this is a fun family get-away!

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for us and our grandchildren. They cottage was everything we hoped for. Well cared for, well equipped. Had wifi which was a blue to us and the kids. The waterfront was sandy, basketball hoop in the water was a big hit with the kids. They loved the paddle boat and kayaks. The lake was shallow enough that the kids could play several of shore befor it was over their heads. It really was perfect for us. I would guess will will visit again. Thanks again Lisa and Doug you are gets hosts!

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for myself and children over Memorial Day weekend.....The cottage was very clean and very nice, i was able to bring my boat also. Doug & Lisa were a great help with my boat and anything we needed. Kids fished, went kayaking, canoeing, and spend time by the bonfire. This was a very wonderful weekend at the lake. Everything we needed was in the cottage , i couldnt ask for a nicer spot on the lake...the lake was very very clean ...WE WILL BE BACK....if your looking for a great getaway cottage on a lake...this is your place.......thanks you Doug & Lisa for make us feel like guys are great:)

Wonderful Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect cozy cottage to get away in for some much needed family time. Our young kids (under 5) loved the loft. We were able to access the lake through Doug and Lisa's property and they helped us moor our boat overnight. We were very grateful for that extra that they did not have to do. The girls were able to swim at many of the shallow sand bars around the lake. The bottom is a nice sand so they didn't mind walking in it. They were able to play close to shore. Doug and Lisa had many water toys that the kids could use. We were lucky to find this little place to get away from reality for a weekend and recharge. Thanks for a great weekend!
