Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bed, 1 bath, sleeps 3

This cozy one bedroom knotty pine cottage offers a separate sitting area with full kitchen. Ideally located on a narrow peninsula between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan, each offering unique beaches. It is across the street from Portage Lake and an easy 5 minute walk to Lake Michigan. Public access to both lakes is close by. Onekama is the gateway to the scenic M22- voted one of the top 10 scenic drives in America by USA Today. There is truly something for everyone. Spend your time strolling both beaches, swimming, boating, fishing, or just relaxing around a beach bonfire while watching the sunset. We are also within a half hour of world class golf at the renown Arcadia Bluffs. Night time fun can be had at the Little River Casino only a few miles away. We are within an hour of the Traverse City wine region, the Platte River, and Crystal Mountain resort. Charter fishing can be easily arranged in Onekama.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and the sitting room has a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully equipped and linens are provided. We offer daily, weekly, and monthly rentals. This dollhouse is located on a lot with its sister cottage and a discount is offered for those interested in renting both. This area of Portage Lake is the most desirable location for most vacationers, due to its unparalleled access to both lakes.

About Fishigan Properties, LLC

Our family has been vacationing in Onekama for four generations. We have never seen a more perfect setting. Both lakes provide such unique offerings and to have them both within minutes is what really makes this area unique. Where else can you watch the sun rise on one lake and set on another within a half mile? What we love the most about the area is the fact that once you have experienced Onekama, you always seem to come back. Year after year and generation after generation, this is the place to make family memories.

What makes this cottage unique

Both of this dollhouse and its sister cottage have beautiful knotty pine interiors. They can be rented independently or together. The dollhouse is a cozy get-away, but would also be a perfect grandparent or in-law cottage for families staying in the sister cottage.

Wonderful up north get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is right across the street from beautiful Portage Lake and a short walk or drive to the public access beach on Lake Michigan. Perfect for unwinding-sunrise over Portage Lake and sunset over Lake Michigan.

Onekama is a very friendly small town, close to Manistee and Traverse City. There are plenty of other nearby activities and attractions-Crystal Mountain, the Manistee National Forest and a lot of beautiful golf courses (we didn't golf, but it looks like a good spot for it).

The cabin was exactly right for two people, and would be fine for three. It is significantly bigger than an average hotel room, without the extra hassle of staying in a hotel. The kitchen and bathroom were just like home, and the cabin was very clean and welcoming when we arrived. There is a patio area in the back for grilling or sitting at a fire pit.

I would most definitely recommend this rental. It is a beautiful area of the state, and the rental price for the cabin was very competitive with motels which do not offer the same access and amenities. The proximity to both an inland lake and Lake Michigan is unique and gives one more options for enjoying the water, regardless of the weather or wind.

Car: recommended

This cozy cottage is located on an amazing stretch of land with less than a half mile between the beaches of Portage Lake and Lake Michigan, within steps of historic Portage Point Inn. There is easy public access to both lakes. Crystal Mountain Resort is a 30 minute drive and offers year-round activities, including skiing in winter and Alpine Toboggan runs in summer. The cottage is close to many golf courses, two listed in Golf Digest top 20- the closest being Arcadia Bluffs- only 10 minutes away. Little River Casino is just 5 minutes away in Manistee. We are also within an hour of the Traverse City wine region and just over an hour to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Rafting, canoeing and tubing are offered at the Platte River within a half hour drive. We are 2 miles from the scenic M22.
