Northern Michigan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful view of Lake Michigan with access. Come see, August 15-29 available

Summer dates available -Sparkling Lake Michigan is just across the street, and the view is magnificent! This 3 bedroom, bath and a half cottage with a walkout basement is ready for you to enjoy. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need: microwave, dishwasher, coffeemaker: all the pans, dishes and utensils, too. Wifi, cable TV, games and books are also included, and this cottage does come with a washer and dryer. Enjoy a bonfire in the fire pit or grill out on the charcoal grill after a game of volleyball or croquet.

Guests usually bring their own sheets and towels. There is a king in the master and a twin daybed, two twins and a full bed in the second upstairs bedroom, and a queen in the first floor bedroom. The shower is a large walk-in, sit-down type, no tub. This cottage is only available by the week during summer. Sorry, NO smoking.

This cottage is also available for longer term, over-winter rental.
