Why Cindy Rase chose Northern Michigan

This cute but spacious home is family owned and has those family touches. Not like the chain hotels or motels its very personable. Lots of room for the whole family...everything is here. All you need to bring is yourself, your clothes and your, dining and linens are all here.

What makes this house unique

Your so close to the lake its a 1 block walk to the public access and boat launch.

Perfect for Snowmobiling

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for us! Not only was the owner easy to get a hold of and answered all my question quickly, but the place was exactly what we needed. It was right across the street from another establishment that some of our group was staying at so it was easy for all of us to get to one another. And easy access to the snowmobile trails. The rental was much bigger than the pictures made it look, and even though it says you can sleep up to 8 we had 10 in our group, 6 adults and 4 children and it worked perfectly. the kids camped out in the living room and had a blast. It was also very affordable! Hope to rent again next year. Also the care taker was very nice to work with.

Would recommend to anyone!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect, from communicating with the owner to the cabin itself. The cabin is very spacious with lots of amenities (everything we needed to cook a nice Christmas dinner). We really enjoyed staying in the cabin and getting to spend time with our family nearby. We can't wait to book this again in the summer!!

Relaxing Time

  • 4 of 5

Had a relaxing time with my family at the Blue Cottage. Everything is there and the beds are comfortable. Cindy is great to work with and followed up to see if everything was fine. Definitely we will consider staying again.

We loved staying at the blue cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the blue cottage. The owner really thought of everything! There were ceiling fans in almost every room and fans in the closet. There were extra mattresses so that it could accomodate more guests. The fire pit in the back was really nice, too! In the kitchen there were spices, salt/pepper, coffee maker, and ice trays in the freezer. The cottage is only a short walk to Otsego Lake, but you really need a boat to explore the lake. There is a boat launch just down the street. If you stay and want to fish without a boat, you will need to go to the state park. The blue cottage was really worth the money and we enjoyed our stay there!

Blue cottage

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleasantly surprised by this little cottage, which is actually quite a bit larger than it looked. It was absolutely spotless and included many extras. I would not hesitate to book this cottage again.
