Return trip a joy

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed Brownlee Cottage several times. Ted and Debbie are such gracious hosts and always available to ensure your vacation is pleasurable. The cottage is immaculate, well equipped, comfy beds and beautiful setting. Great store - Kris Mart - minutes away has everything imaginable for your needs. The fishing was great, glorious sunsets, evening fires, morning coffee on the boathouse deck, wine under the starry night sky...who could ask for more? Come prepared to be amazed!

Just Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

I really can't say enough good things about this place. The location was great with an excellent view of Brownlee Lake. The house was clean, cozy, spacious and had everything we needed to prepare meals. Mom and I spent a lot of time on the deck above the boat house. We enjoyed the view and sitting by a warm fire. The owners are so welcoming!! They had a sign for mom and I and even my dogs name was on there too!!! They also left a bottle of wine and a basket of fruit for us which we also enjoyed by the fire. Please note...there is a grocery store right down the street and it has EVERYTHING!! No need to bring groceries all the way from home...just stop there when you get in town. You can't go wrong with this place!!! It's perfect!!

More than what was expected!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great cottage and wonderful owners! Relaxing, comfortable with a wonderful view of the Lake. Spent time reading, painting, fishing and enjoying the area. Close to Harrisville, Oscoda and Tawas. Cottage was filled with everything you'd need! Just sorry we couldn't get together with the owners for a cocktail one evening.

Relaxing Cottage Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing stay on Brownlee Lake. The cottage was perfect and was exactly as pictured. It was just the right size, immaculate, well stocked and nicely appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the welcome basket provided and fresh vegetables the owners shared with us. It was fun to watch pontoon boats go back and forth across the lake and the king fisher and the heron searching for their next meal right in front of the cottage. We would have liked to have made use of the pedal boat and the patio on top of the boat house but the weather did not cooperate as it rained the majority of the week we were here. These rainy days were bearable because the cottage was so nice. We arrived in time to attend the car show in Lincoln on the final day and another day enjoyed a day of wine tasting in Alpena. Our boat was too big for the lake but the owners offered us a safe, secure place for it during our stay. The weather finally broke just before our last day and we were able to take our boat and spend an enjoyable day on Hubbard Lake just a few minutes away. The owners were gracious hosts, and checked in with us periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely enjoy a return trip and would highly recommend this as a wonderful getaway.

This is a charming beautifully decorated cottage on a small inland lake. It is very quiet and has a comfortable nook with settee and rocker in the front of the cottage to lookout on the lake, have your morning coffee, read, or birdwatch. There is a deck on top of the boat house to take in the sunset, socialize, and observe the changing light and weather and it's effect on the lake. The owners are nearby and eager to help with any question that may come up. Definitely a positive experience!
