Dennis and Susan Briggs purchased this cottage in 2012
Secluded, quiet, comfortable cottage on a private, dead-end drive with no thru traffic.
Quiet, relaxing environment that has the feel of northern Michigan in a southern Michigan location.
Year 'round recreation area.
I cannot say enough about how lovely this cottage is... so, I'll simply tell you that in 3 months, my family and I have stayed there 3 times! It is simply a gorgeous & clean home in a quiet and serene setting. Susan & Dennis are absolutely LOVELY people and they are very accommodating. Fishing off of the pier is one of favorite pass times because it's so easy to catch small fish. Otherwise, relaxing by the lake or the fire pit can't be beat and the lake is small and private. Obviously, we HIGHLY recommend the cottage and willing to bet you won't be disappointed!
My parents and I had such a wonderfully relaxing time. The cottage was located on a nice, quiet, dead end road. The patio and almost all the windows from inside the house had beautiful lake views. Susan & Dennis were very nice and easy to work with as well. We would definitely recommend this cottage!
We enjoyed a wonderful weekend here and highly recommend it. The location is incredibly peaceful and provides a very relaxing get away. Though small, the lake was certainly large enough to enjoy. The lake is very nice and seems clean for a lake of its size. There were always a couple boats out fishing, skiing, or tubing, but everyone seemed to have plenty of room and it was by no means crowded. We did a good bit of fishing off the pier - which was quite easy. Though the fish were small there were plenty! The house itself is beautiful and pristine - extremely clean. The owners did a great job when they built it and have been keeping it up very nicely - they were also wonderful to work with.
I could write an essay about our fantastic stay at this beautiful cottage. But I will keep it simple and let you know that the cottage will meet and exceed your every expectation. The property is gorgeous and we absolutely loved the quiet surroundings! No matter your reason for staying at the cottage, you will be glad you did. Our only regret was not getting to properly meet the owners. Hopefully next time.
I chose this location as it was extremely close to some family I have in the area without knowing too much about the lake, the house etc. Wow PEACEFUL ! This lake is so quiet and so nice. Water is clear and refreshing. Dennis and Susan have designed the house inside and out to maximize your stay and relaxation. The outside space is so perfect for grilling, fire pit, docks. fully equipped kitchen ! I never heard a single car pass the house and it was such a refreshing setting. We are already planning on return trips. The Briggs are very easy to work with .
We had a truly relaxing mini vacation at Bristol Lake. We were able to invite my parents-in-law to join us for a day. I can not say enough about this rental, the owners were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The cottage was perfectly planned, had everything you need, and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Lake. We would recommend this property to anyone. Thank you Susan and Dennis for such a memorable get away. It was sad to leave your beautiful home, but hope to come back next year. :-)
