The historic Tea Room Cottage was built in 1922 by our Great Aunt Lala Garesche'. It was truly a tea room where afternoon tea and lunch were served.
Kathy Sarkisian ~ The Cottage Concierge purchased this cottage in 1922
This cottage has so much to offer: Wonderful, warm cottage feel with loads of room for everyone you love to enjoy. Large back yard perfect for games and relaxing dinners on the deck.
All this and Lake Michigan at your door ~ private beach access!
All the charm of yesteryear combined with modern conveniences and private access to the beach.

all the amenities and action you want...
We had a marvelous time with a family reunion spread across the Tea House and the property right across the street. Those of us staying in the Tea House loved its comfortable and charming interior and all the thoughtful furnishings and kitchen items. The bedrooms are all upstairs, along with a full bath, and downstairs was another bath with a stall shower, a sweet and good sized dining room, and the living room and screened porch. There is a big, flat backyard, and a deck off the back, as well as a place to rinse off sandy feet and a clothesline for wet bathing suits and towels. As some other reviewers have commented, you can just feel yourself slow down and relax while eating breakfast on the screened in porch off the living room. Sleeping upstairs under the ceiling fan with the lake breeze coming through the windows was heavenly. We loved our stay! The owner/agent, Kathy, was very helpful too, and always responded promptly to any questions we had.
We spent our summers growing up on the Lakeshore and its always great to get back! We rented the Tea Room Cottage the last week of July. My sisters and our kids enjoyed a relaxing, sunny week! This cottage is all you want for a week at the beach; great places for gathering, the dining room, living room, screened in porch, and the large back yard worked perfectly for our group. Lots of card games, beach time including sunsets, and great summer meals on the grill!
This is indeed a very vintage Michigan cottage. Path to small beach right down the road is lovely, screened porch is sweet. Beds-very uncomfortable. Baths-need updating badly. The kitchen is extemely basic and very sunny. We enjoyed our stay but glad we weren't planning on cooking. I would say overall-if baths and kitchen were updated and new beds were purchased it would be worth the price.
I stayed at the Tea Room for the Month of June this year. I'm a long time renter of this cottage and every year I enjoy it that much more. I would have to check all those boxes because this cottage is a great place to stay for all ages. I always look forward to coming back and seeing what's new in the cottage and I enjoy my summer days in Douglas.
We were guests at the tea room Labor Day 2014, had a great time!
The Tea room is a classic Michigan cottage, with plenty of vintage charm.
It doesn't have lots of extra bells and whistles, but it's clean and has everything you need to create a special vacation.
We spent much of our time enjoying the sand, sun and surf, great location with private shared beach but we had plenty of time to enjoy the screen porch, dinner and drinks on the deck and played loads of games in the great backyard.
The Tea Room is billed as a vintage cottage and is definitely worn around the edges. It is in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach and has a great backyard and screened porch for games and family gatherings. The house is advertised as sleeping up to 10. We had that number of people and feel that is too large a group for the tiny cottage to handle since it has only two small, very basic bathrooms which were stretched by constant use. The cottage was not particularly clean and could use a good handyman to patch screens, clear plumbing problems and do basic maintenance. The refrigerator died during our stay. The rental company did a great job of replacing it quickly and the owner was happy to reimburse us for lost food. Would recommend this cottage for a small family or friends group who want a relaxed, low-maintenance setting.
