Wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights and couldn't be more pleased. The cottage is basically on a little peninsula which includes a sandy beach and sand bar to walk out on. At night the full moon rose from the east with an incredible view from the private firepit. The cottage is updated with big window lake views. We recommend this to anyone that wants a semi private cottage on a nice small lake.

Great Cabin and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at the cabin. The location on Manuka Lake is perfect - nice and quiet with good neighbors. Good location to bring your kayak and explore the lake. The cabin was clean, modern, and exactly as described. The owner was great to work with, answered all my questions, was very responsive and helpful. I would definitely rent this cabin again and would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, updated cottage on a nice quiet lake. Good beach for our young kids to swim and a nice paddle boat and row boat to use. It's a great lake for kayaking with not much boat traffic. A trip to the island on the lake is highly recommended. There is a beautiful beach for swimming there. Cottage had a great layout and was nicely finished. The deck was in good shape and we made good use of the gas grill. All in all a great get away for adults and kids.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described. Nice cozy home right on the lake with large deck and great views. Also, there is a fire pit for bonfires and sandy beach area which we used every night. Easy drive to a lot of attractions in Northern MI. We day tripped to the Leelanau Peninsula to check out the wineries and sand dunes which I highly recommend. Overall a great stay!

LOVED THIS COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE ON SERENE LAKE WITH LOTS TO DO IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. AFTER SPENDING SOME TIME PADDLE BOATING AND FISHING (I CAUGHT A COUPLE NICE SIZED BASS) I VENTURED OUT ON MY BIKE, AND FOUND THERE ARE MILES OF GREAT TRAILS IN THE IMMEDIATE AREA. I RECOMMEND THE TRAIL JUST ACROSS FROM MANUKA LAKE TRAIL FOR SOME REALLY NICE AND FAIRLY CHALLENGING TERRAIN WITH ALOT OF WILDLIFE. ALSO THE COTTAGE SITS ON A PENINSULA AND AND THERE IS VARIETY OF WILDLIFE THAT PASSES BY. REALLY GREAT STAY

Great house on a gorgeous lake!

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house was perfect for my husband and I with our 2 kids and the grandparents. The deck and back yard were great for our family reunion. The lake was big enough to explore but not busy. Loved it!
