Why Kurt or Tammy Hubschneider chose Northern Michigan

We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it. It is absolutely beautiful. Originally built in the 1930's, it has a charm all it's own. With the 350 ft. of Duck Lake frontage and the 500 ft. of peaceful Mason Creek bordering the edge of the property, it is truly unique.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage resort reminds you of times gone by, yet has all of today's comforts. 350 ft. of private frontage, water trampoline, raft, 2 docks, boats, swimming pool, basketball court, horseshoes, playground and recreation room. Just a great place to get away from it all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

On our way back!

★★★★★

“Brookside Cottages was such a wonderful surprise for us last year. I was born in 1964. All of my family vacations growing up were in corporate hotels. Always on the run all day and then passing out in bed late at night. This was the very first vacation where I felt like I was at one of my grandparent's cottages where they spent their summers as kids. Our cottage was immaculate! We immediately felt at peace as soon as we opened the door. In fact, it kind of reminds me of one of those marvelous exhibits at Greenfield Village! Except here, you can cross over the red velvet rope, kick off your shoes and truly experience a vacation of yesteryear! I'm serious too! A very big part of our vacation was the wonderful,unexpected new friend we found in Kurt! As busy as this man is, he will stop to talk to you like he has been a family friend for your whole life! We are so excited to come back this year. My husband is really looking forward to it also. We hope to meet his lovely wife Tammy this year. Thank you Kurt and Tammy for helping to create some of our best family memories! See you soon.”

Cozy, Clean and Well Equipped!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for one week and were both really impressed with our experience and the attentiveness of Kurt and Tammy during our stay. They made sure we were taken care of by answering questions before our arrival, and being available by phone or in person when we had questions about amenities or local attractions. The cottage was very cozy and well kept. We were impressed with how it came stocked with many essentials for glassware/dishes, baking, and utensils. We were planning on cooking most of our meals so this was a bonus to know we had everything we needed in the cottage.

We also enjoyed the benefit of having free amenities on site. The location was close enough to the attractions of Traverse City and Sleeping Bear Dunes, but also felt far enough removed where we could enjoy relaxation and quiet by the lake.

We definitely will be returning in the future, and highly recommend this place!

We enjoyed our stay at Brookside and would return without hesitation. We rented an efficiency cottage as we figured we'd be out and about during the day. The cabin was very clean (important factor for me to consider a return visit) and Kurt checked on us whenever he was on the property to make sure we were happy.

Very close to Traverse City.

Family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Brookside. The owners were very personable and helpful and the property was very nice. Our children enjoyed the kayaks, water trampoline, pool, hot tub and game room. There were many activities that helped to keep everyone happy. The beach area was not very large, but other than that the property was lovely. The cabins were clean, comfortable and very well stocked. We really enjoyed our stay!

Great, Close to Interlochen

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with your hospitality at Brookside. We did not know what to expect beyond what we had seen on your website. Since we had both been campers at Interlochen 50 long years ago, we knew something of the beauty of the area, but had no idea just how nice it would be to have a place away from the music camp itself. and only ten minutes down the road to a grocery and the camp, excellent situation.

The sunrise, the sunset, beautiful. That was not up to you, but the convenience of the washer and dryer made those logistics easy. And the cabin itself provided all the comforts of home, enough space in the fridge for our modest eating needs. The window AC was just enough to calm down the heat.

The other adult campers who stayed on the campus had quite a different experience, the generic hotel. Your cabin provided character in abundance and made our stay memorable.

Many thanks.

Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brookside for the 2nd time early in August 2014. Kurt and Tammy as new owners have done an excellent job of making the property more eye-appealing and therefore more relaxing and comfortable. They are also wonderful hosts and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We had expected to have a fire pit like we had during our first stay in 2012 and were sad to see there wasn't one for our cottage. We called Kurt to ask if there was a "common" fire pit we could use so our grandson wouldn't be disappointed. Kurt explained that they had just gone for dinner but would come right back and bring us one of the portable fire pits they have.

Tammy and Kurt couldn't have been any more accommodating. Each time they were at the resort, they stopped for a quick visit. Kurt came to see us before departure to be sure things were up to our expectations and I assured him that everything was just wonderful.

The cottages are inviting and comfortable - just enough room for what we needed since we spent 90% of our time outdoors. Kurt and Tammy have provided the basics that are needed in the cottages. There was nothing extra that we wished we'd had.

The beach area, while not big, is adequate for lounging as well as wading into the water and going for a quick dip. The new water trampoline was a hit with all the guests for the full week we were there. Not a day went by that it wasn't used.

Overall, the resort has really shaped up and the owners are great. We would definitely consider going back.

Perfect UP North Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The Brookside Cottage Resort was a perfect setting for our family reunion. Renting 7 seven cabins together gave us all the perfect balance of closeness and separation. There was always something to do whether it was swimming, fishing, jumping on the floating trampoline, water skiing, kayaking or a more relaxing activity like sunbathing by the lake on a raft, lying by the pool, or playing cards at the picnic table. Other than a trip to the grocery store, you really didn't need to leave unless you wanted to tour some of the local attractions. Duck Lake is really nice lake and a well kept secret. So is the Brookside Resort ~ so don't tell too many people : ) Tammy and Kurt have done an excellent job with the place.
