Overview

Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

Rent here for a Week Of Up North Lake Fun. Close To Lake Michigan.

Welcome to the home page of Ford Lake Cottages.

We a spacious main home on Ford Lake near Fountain, Michigan. Fountain is about 15 minutes northeast of Ludington in the heart of the Manistee National Forest. The property is on a spring fed lake that has quiet hours after 7p.m. So you can enjoy the peace and quiet of a no-wake-lake after a day of fun on the water.

We have three rowboats for guests and there is a public boat launch about a mile away where you can launch your own boat or jet skis.

During the spring, summer and fall the North Country Trail is less than five miles away for world-class hiking and mountain biking. The Lumberjack 100 Mountain Bike Race is held at Big M ski area each June and draws professional riders as well as local amateurs. Summer is a blast on the lake of course with boating, fishing and swimming.

Winter in Fountain means snowmobiling. You can ride right to major trailheads right from the cabins. Baldwin, Wellston, Irons, Cadillac and Manistee Trails are rideable right from your spot on the lake.

The main house is turnkey, bring clothing, food and beach towels and you are good to go. The property is shared with three cabins that may have other guests in them but there is plenty of room for all.

To make reservations for the 2015-16 season or ask for more information call or email us.

Perfect Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here three years running and can't be more pleased. The owners are very nice to deal with and are very accomodating. This house has tons of room inside and is extremely well kept, clean, and fully stocked with everything you need. Just bring yourself and your beach towel and everything else is already provided. The lake has great fishing as we have caught many large Bass and Northern Pike. If you have kids there are a ton of willing blugills to keep them busy for hours. There is a private boat dock and a great swim dock for swimming. The lake is spring fed and very clean. There is a nice fire pit with wood included and the views of the lake from inside the house are outstanding. This place is so very relaxing!! If your a Trout or Steelhead or Salmon fishermen the house is close to the Pierre Marquette, Little Manistee, and Big Sauble Rivers. You can also shop and enjoy the towns of Manistee and Ludington which both also have Lake Michigan beaches. I know we will be back !!

We have been renting lake homes for the last six years and this home has the best layout of any we have stayed at this far. The home and property is very clean. The owners are accommodating and attentive. The swim area and beach is wonderful for children with plenty and the fishing was great.

We rented this property for the 4th of July weekend. 4 adults and 4 kids. Our kids had a blast!!! Plenty of room for the kids to play inside and outside. Really nice place.I would recommend this property to anybody leaving for a family get away. Very comfortable and spacious. Thanks for the use of your home. I'll definitely be back and tell all my friends.
