About Bob

We have enjoyed 'Pure Michigan' all our lives. Living and working in northwest Detroit suburbs we enjoy our Tawas getaway escapes. Not too far (about 3 hours) we can quickly get into our rest and relaxation mode. As always the lake levels change. At times there is quite a bit of beach, and at other times the water is up to the breakwall.

Bob purchased this cottage in 1955

Why Bob chose Michigan

Family owned since 1955, four generations have been able to spend many summers and created great memories. Many updates have been added through the years with careful preservation of the past as well.

What makes this cottage unique

A quiet 'piece of heaven' off the main highway. We can enjoy, biking, swimming, boating without ever leaving the place. If we want to go for ice cream, dinner, art fairs, farmers market, antiquing, golfing, shopping, they are all close.

Cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was exactly what we wanted. We all enjoyed the quirkiness and relaxed attitude of this cabin. Everything was provided, and we really appreciated the washer and dryer. There was a little problem with the wiring: we couldn'the run the microwave and coffee pot at the same time, or the dryer and microwave at the same time, but, we got used to it. It was very quiet, and the neighbors were very nice. It could have been a touch cleaner.

Could be so much more

  • 2 of 5

Awesome location and so much potential. If you need a place to stay it's fine, but it's cluttered and not very clean. I hate to leave a negative review because the owner is a nice and accommodating man but there were spider webs everywhere when we got there, the tv doesn't really work and the place looks like it wasn't vacuumed in a long time. It could be an awesome place with some de-cluttering and some cleaning.

Enjoyed the stay

  • 4 of 5

Nice place right on the water. We enjoyed the view and the breeze. The place is old, but has a nice cottage charm to it. We came on a fishing trip and needed a place to rest our heads. The bathroom is small and so are the bedrooms, but met our needs. Wireless internet access was a big bonus, since 3G service is hard to come by around the shoreline. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. I'd stay here again.

Nearest Motorway
0.25 Miles
US 23

Even though this area is laid back and not as congested as the western part of the state, there is always something to do. You can sample Michigan wines at the Uncapped & Unscrewed charity event, walk the State Dock and look at boats from all over the country, or shop some of the specialty shops in downtown E. Tawas. There is a bike path that goes along US 23 from the cottage to E. Tawas (approx. 5mi).
