What makes this cottage unique

Onekama, Michigan is known as the town of two lakes. The cottage is located on Portage Lake which you are also minutes from driving your boat to Lake Michigan from Portage Lake. Both lakes offer outstanding fishing! Plus the cottage is located on the scenic M22 highway which brings you to many Michigan attractions that are close for you to explore!

Great place for a family stay!

  • 5 of 5

The family enjoyed the easy of access to the lake every morning. Wake up and go fishing! There was plenty of space for everyone. The kids had fun swimming and kayaking. The closeness of Lake Michigan was nice whether by boat or driving. Walking to town and back was great exercise and not too far. Very equipped and relaxing! Overall it was excellent place to be!

Great time had by all.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to rent the cottage. Our family group spans three generations and the space well accommodates our needs. The addition of the expanding dock at the end of the pier was a hit, especially with the higher lake level. The screened in porch across the back of the cottage is a preferred place to sit and enjoy the lake and not get eaten by bugs. Our family has been coming to Onekama for almost 40 years and we love the laid back ambience of the region and always find lots to do.

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so comfortable and the decor is lovely. We spent a good deal of time on the screened-in porch which looks out to the lake. There were no bugs and we could enjoy the outdoors even when it rained. The cottage was well-equipped for all our needs. The view was tranquil and serene. We had fun swimming and fishing and enjoyed a trip to Frankfort for a great Friday fish dinner at Dinghy's.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property late July 2014. we had 7 adults ranging in age from 19 to 50, and a baby. The cottage was large enough that we could all be in the dining room, porch or family room together. All the bedrooms were also roomy and comfortable. The cottage was very clean and the owners helpful with any questions we had. It is in a beautiful area we boated, kayaked, fished, biked and went sight seeing. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to someone and to return ourselves.

The cottage was very clean and the description accurately described the location and amenities.

The owner was very attentive and understanding.

I would recommend the cottage to anyone who has a big family. The cottage is centrally located and we could easily get to local attractions.

Great lake front cottage..big, clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at this cottage! It was perfect for our girls kayaking week. It accommodated the 8 of us comfortably. Great location for kayaking many places. Portage lake out the channel to a very calm lake Michigan to see a beautiful sunset. The Manistee river, Pine and even the Pere Marquette rivers. We also spent a day in Manistee shopping and kayaking off the beach. The cottage was very clean and well stocked. The owner was very helpful with info and answers to questions. We would definitely go back!
