Island View Cottage on the lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This spring-fed lake is so clean it begs for swimming and water sports. You have plenty of room to go power boating, skiing, tubing and fishing. A sandy beach and dock are perfect for swimming and other water fun.

The Island View Cottage is an affordable rental cottage right on the lake! This fully furnished cottage has a great view of the lake and a very functional layout. The large living room is just great to gather in at the end of a day. The two bedrooms and pull out couch in the living room allow sleeping for up to 8 people. Dine in the open kitchen area or outside on the deck overlooking the lake and its breathtaking sunsets.

Just pack and go -- we provide everything! Linens are included. The lake shore itself has a sandy bottom and stays shallow for a long distance out from shore, giving loads of room for young children to play in the water or for adult water sports. Have your own boat? Bring it there is a dock to tie up to and the boat ramp is a short distance away.

So much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was absolutely wonderful in helping us plan our cottage stay! She answered my questions quickly and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. My husband and I, along with our 3 children, ages 10, 8, and 2 had a blast just hanging out on the water for the week. The water was very shallow and perfect for the kids to play, and the kids had so much fun with the kayaks. We were even able to use the canoe! EVERYTHING we could possibly think of was provided, from towels and bedding to a HUGE variety of sand and beach toys and life jackets for all ages! The house was extremely clean and bright and cheerful, and the sunroom made the perfect board game room for our family. I HIGHLY recommend the Island View Cottage! OH! and Michigan's Adventure is just a few miles away!

Wonderful Family Vatation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best time here. We have five children ranging in age from 5 years old to 19 years old and all of them had a great time. There was so much to do that they didn't even bother with their cell phones and electronic devices while there! Michelle and Paul are wonderful people and were very accommodating, checking in to see if we needed anything at all and letting our kids use their paddleboat and kayaks. The lake is quite beautiful with wonderful views.

We hope to return every summer.

Thank you so much Paul and Michelle!

Best Kept Secret!

  • 5 of 5

Our family will be returning to the Island View Cottage on the Lake for the 4th time in July, 2015. My wife and I have two daughters 11 and 13 and they absolutely LOVE their time spent here! This cottage has EVERYTHING from a quiet environment, to water sports (boating, swimming, fishing, kayaks, pedal boats), a sandy beach, spacious living quarters, internet (if you must), and the most incredibly gracious hosts. Whenever life gets tough, I simply remember the relaxing times spent on the sun deck watching the kids play on the beach and await our next arrival. If you are looking for family fun and relaxation, the Island View Cottage on the Lake is the place to be. Shhhh... don't tell anyone about it so we can keep this secret to ourselves!!!
