About Al Gallegos

Our family is currently from the Chicagoland area I work in downtown Chicago and my wife is a personal fitness trainer.

Al Gallegos purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Al Gallegos chose Manistee

Our family started visiting the Manistee when we would go skiing in Cadillac at Cabarfae Ski Resort. We would come up to this area so often we decided to purchase a small home. Since then we come up all year long, in the winter for skiing, the summer for fishing, golfing and boating. Over the years we put a lot of work in to this cottage and our family has had a lot of great times. We want to show you what Manistee has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a relaxing trip. Your home was very comfortable. Rick was there when we arrived and checked in with us periodically. The only problem we noticed was internet connection, but my husband reset it and fired up fine. Everything else worked well.

We drove up to Oneckama (winery), fished Lake Manistee (lots of rock bass and perch) and ate at the Little River Casino.

Thank you for allowing us to stay. We had a great visit!

Nice, simple lodging

  • 4 of 5

Nice little cottage. Clean and good location. Nice yard. Beds are all full size NOT queen as listed. Having garage was nice with weather being iffy. Living room seating limited for 4. We'd stay again if in the area.

Cute house and good location

  • 4 of 5

As a native of this town, I like this area because it is a short drive to everything. The house was clean and worked well for our family of 6. There were a few details missing like trim around some doors & windows, but it didn't affect our stay. Plan on staying in the future as well.

Charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed to have on vacation was here. The kids really loved the setting, fire pit, DVDs and the WIFI. The property manager was very attentive. A short walk to Lake Michigan, we walked to the lake daily. We highly recommend staying here!

Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage, which was perfect for my wife and I to show my family around north-western Michigan. It was comfortable for our stay with plenty of amenities (including great camp chairs which we took to the beach), and the owner Rick was very accommodating during our stay. Location wise, it's a short drive into Manistee with some great places to eat and drink and some wonderful beaches, plus we could drive to a number of other locations inside an hour. We would happily stay again!
