Wonderful views of Lake Huron are yours with this charming A-Frame cottage, located 15 minutes from the town of Cheboygan. The beach here is just steps from the deck and cottage. The cottage has been completely remodeled inside, and is just beautiful! The cottage features an open concept living, dining, and kitchen area, 3 bedrooms, and one full bath. The cottage is located in a quiet wooded association which features four parks, complete with playground equipment, basketball courts, and a sand volleyball court. The roads in the area are great for bike riding, jogging or walking. This is an ideal cottage for families or couples. Please note that due to high water levels, the beach at this cottage has been greatly reduced in size. Wave action on the Great Lakes can change the consistency of the beach on a daily basis, from all sand to all small stones. When it is all stones, there is a nice sand beach, less than a mile away at one of the beach areas owned by the association that the cottage is in.

A-Frame perfect get-away for girl's time
This place was clean but could have used an airing out as it was musty. I do realize that a cottage in a wooded area right on the lake is going to have a dampness to it, but it could have used a dehumidifier. Other than this it was perfect and the only reason I did not give it five stars. We absolutely loved our time on the deck. It was so calming watching the clear waters of Lake Huron and we grilled out and read...We, all four women enjoyed it very much! We will go back!
Thank you for your review. It was great to read that your group enjoyed your getaway! During your stay, our area was experiencing extremely high humidity. That would most likely account for the musty smell in the cottage on your arrival. Thank you very much for your comments! We hope that you will return in the future.
A Third Return Visit
This little cottage has been a perfect location for me, my daughter and three grand daughters for the last three summers. Plenty of space, inviting beach area and rock collection, sunrise and sunset in one location, private, clean and affordable.
This year the water level was higher than previous years so we ventured out into the surrounding area a little more, going to Rogers City to a fine beach, and another trip across the Bridge.
My daughter and I would both recommend this cottage. It's a beautiful location as described more elaborately in the other reviews....and we have returned 3 times!
Our week at this cottage was spectacular. All was in order, very comfortable and beautiful. Our weather was typical Northen Michigan fall: sunny one minute, rainy the next. But the cottage was perfect for both. The improvements are very nice. I mention this because our Realtor showed us the place twice several years ago; just too early to make the move north. We came close! So, great job Richardsons! We love Cordwood and will love returning.
Thanks for a great time!
This cottage is awesome! The pictures don't do it justice. The views of Lake Huron are incredible, we sat on the deck every morning and every evening and just took the sites in. The cottage itself is great, very clean and well kept and plenty of room for my family of 4. The water is literally steps away from the cottage and we enjoyed swimming each day. The street the cottage is on is very quiet and has little traffic, our kids were able to ride their bikes everyday with no worries. The location is nice as well, we were able to take day trips to Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, St. Ignace, Cheboygan and Sault Ste. Marie. I would highly recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
Wonderful cozy cottage with great views of Lake Huron. You get absolutely beautiful sunrises and sunsets while also being able to see the Mackinaw Bridge. The upstairs has a balcony and you can also watch the sunrise from in bed!!!! It is located at a great location that is close enough to the U.P. to go check out the waterfalls and beautiful scenery. Also had a first of seeing an eagle swoop down and grab a fish about ten feet off of the beach at the cottage. The lake is great for kayaking when the wake is low and there is lots to see like a ship wreck just five houses to the east at the community beach. And you cannot forget to stop by The Big Dipper for ice cream!!!!!! If you want an adventures bike ride, take the ferry ride from Cheboygan to Bois Blake Island. Just be sure to bring snacks and water for the whole day because the island is a good size beautiful. Fully equipped kitchen with all you need to cook and bake including crockpot, blender, toaster, and microwave. Nice size refrigerator/freezer to store your food. Nice clean bathroom with great water pressure and plenty of towel racks. Great amount of parking space (fits four vehicles with comfort). Deck is huge and has nice size picnic table. The porch on the road side of the cottage has an area to wash off feet to prevent tracking the outdoors inside. May want to bring paper plates and plastic ware. The neighbors were very nice and had a very social dog that would occasionally visit. A definite vacation spot to come back to and can’t wait to do so!!!!
Our family had a last minute vacation change this summer, so we booked this cottage on the lake because the dates needed were open. This turned out to be one of the best Northern Michigan trips ever. The cottage was clean, comfortable and cozy, just like the description states. The beach was even better. We spent most of the time on the quiet beach watching the freighters pass and enjoying an evening bon fire. Cody, the neighbor dog would come visit periodically, just give him a stick and you will be friends forever.
We did spend the day at Mackinac Island just up the road 25 miles or so, but other than that, we chose the serenity of Cordwood Trail. Can't wait to go back next summer!
The cottage is located about a 15 minute drive from the town of Cheboygan. The cottage is within a one hour drive from popular attractions in Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, Indian River, Petoskey, and Harbor Springs.
