Kim and Paul purchased this cottage in 1991
Gorgeous location, natural setting and a rare find for a large piece of property
Over 230 acres make the property very private for an incredible getaway in pure Michigan.
I visited with my two sisters and their families (6 adults and 9 kids, ages 7 through 16) and there was plenty of room for everybody. The house is not what I'd call fancy, but it has everything you need for a relaxing, quiet week away from it all. The property is very large, and the view of Lake Michigan is amazing. We brought bikes, but the grounds are more suited for hiking (and there are so many other things to do, we never missed the bikes). The kids had a great time on the boats and playing in the cove (but bring water shoes because the rocks are hard to walk on in bare feet). We enjoyed volleyball tournaments, euchre games, and bonfires, and had a wonderful time reconnecting with our families. Paul and Kim were very helpful and responsive to any questions, and had great suggestions for area attractions.
The house was great along with the area and Lake Michigan. Everyone truly enjoyed it and looking forward to doing it again.
Our entire family (including children 2 - 5), parents and grandparents all had a wonderful trip to the Stonington House. It is a beautifully secluded piece of property. The house is well appointed and CLEAN. Having traveling to many different spots up north, this is definitely our favorite so far. We'll be going back again next year, I hope!
Travel east or west and explore the small town charm, national forests and water of the Upper Peninsula. Daytrips may include climbing falls, visiting Mackinac Island with no motor vehicles allowed or trying your luck at the casinos. The possibilities are endless!
