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!

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.

Stayed here for the weekend with both our sons and there wives there was plenty of room, the cottage was clean and very comfy had a great time. Rick the caretaker was a real help when I was looking for an anchor for my bass boat as I don't usually anchor, a cement block and rope from Rick and we were all set, i KNOW kinda hillbilly but it worked.

Thanks for a great weekend

Weekend stay.

  • 5 of 5

Recently spent a long weekend I'm Manistee for family reunion. Rented this cottage for myself and 2 daughters families. Four adults and two babies. This place was perfect. Just enough space for babies to crawl around and each family had own bedroom. We will be back. Cottage was very clean and well equipped.

Relaxing Getaway near Lake Michigan

  • 5 of 5

For two adults excapiing the heat and humidity of downstate Illiinois, the house on Gloria Lane was perfect. We enjoyed the cool lake breezes of early August, and the absence of mosquitoes during evenings of star gazing. We took the river walk in downtown Manistee all the way to Lake Michigan and enjoyed watching the fishing boats navigate the river. We also enjoyed a picnic at the Birding Sanctuary just north of our residence. The flower gardens there were spectacular. Spent one day driving up to the high overlook just north of Arcadia with its Breathtaking view of the lakeshore....then on up to Frankfort for leisure time and shopping. The house was clean and comfy, and the neighbors were fun to talk to. The public beach 2 minutes to the north was a great place to enjoy the sunsets. The house is undergoing some upgrades, but is spacious, and well appointed with everything you need for exploriing the area, or for just kicking back and relaxing.
