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 Michigan

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!

Great week by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Manistee Cottage. The location was perfect for us as we had a bunch of friends camping at Orchard Beach State Park. The nature trails at the part offered a beautiful space for walking or the morning jog. We could go just a mile up Lakeshore Dr. for a beach area or back into Manistee and spend time on the Fifth Avenue Beach or the Manistee City Beach. The bicycle ride around Bar Lake was a nice 12-mile loop.

The cottage itself was very clean and very comfortable. 3 bedrooms with full-size beds, a really nice bathroom with 2 sinks and full tub/shower. The kitchen was well supplied with tools and utensils. There was a Weber grill available (which we used a lot) and he even left some bikes for adults and children. The neighborhood was quiet but friendly.

We will definitely stay there again sometime soon!

Nice Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Rented for long weekend. Three adults and a dog. Cottage was clean and comfortable and within walking distance of several hiking trails (which the dog loved). Cable TV and wifi were a nice touch. Only complaint was the ad said there were a couple of bikes for guest use but we never found them. Also could use a larger pot to cook pasta in lol.
