Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood in Napoleon, Michigan and is accessible by M-50, I-94 and US-127. It has an open kitchen/ livingroom, knotty pine walls & cabinets. You have all the modern amenities of home, all your towels, bedding and cookware are included. Don't worry about steps down to the lake here, the lawn slopes gently to the lake making it enjoyable for all.

The use of two kayaks and one canoe are provided free. Or, You have your own dock so bring your boat. There is a firepit facing the lake and firewood in the box behind the garage.

If you like to fish you will love Olcott, Little Wolf and Michigan Center Lakes where bass, pike and bluegill are an everyday occurrence and they stock walleye in big wolf lake just one lake over plus the gills bed right in front of the cottage in early June.

If its water sports you're after, then the 400 acre sandy bottom Wolf Lake is for you. Ski, tube, board, sail or just sit back and watch on the sand bar. Or if its total relaxation you're after, take a backwoods cruise over to Price Lake. It is truly one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen.

No matter what your pleasure this 1500 acre chain of lakes has something for everyone.

About Mike Jacobs

Hello my name is Mike and this is my daughter Kaily. She is the reason I own this cottage. Her great great grandfather built this cottage back in the 1930s and it has been passed down through the years and generations to me to hold and maintain until she is ready for home ownership.

I own a home improvement company so it is very important to me that when you arrive you find an impecably maintained property. It is also important to me that when you stay with us you are able to enjoy the lake as much as possible. This is why we have two kayaks and a canoe free of charge. We have also taken the time and expense to furnish the cottage with quality linens, just because youre at a cottage doesnt mean you shouldn't feel like your on vacation. I have tried to think of everything you might need or forget like coolers, fishing poles and tackle, yard games, board games, books, video games, portable awnings, party tents, two gas grills, coozies, dozens of life preservers in mscelaneous sizes, extra blakets, throws and pillows and more. But if you do seem to miss something please let me know so I can have it there for the next person.

This has been a fun way to hold onto a house this long in hopes Kaily will appriciate what those before her have worked so hard to provide for her. I'm not sure when she will be ready but I sure will mis all the friends we have made over the years.

Mike Jacobs purchased this cottage in 1995

Comfortable lakeside cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice time at this quaint cottage. Overall, it is a very nice space inside and out. The combination of a great yard and a nice dock with the use of kayaks and canoe was perfect. The cozy cottage has an open kitchen and plenty of room for our family of five. We had a truly relaxing time away and would come back in a heartbeat.

Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, fishing was a little slow, but very relaxing. Lakes were very quiet and calm. Only down side was doors needed a little maintenance and windows need some screens to let the fresh air in. But loved it.

Relaxing and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed for two weeks and we enjoyed how peaceful the lake is. Our dog, enjoyed swimming in the lake and searching for fish. There are restaurants nearby that were great. The cottage is clean and relaxing.

Thanks

It was great.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is very functionable and cute. Would have been nice if windows opened with screens as I prefer that rather than A/C (but A/C worked great). Nice property and great being right on the lake.

Perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of yard for bonfire and enjoying the lake peacefully. We were very lucky with the weather. Even on the day that it rained there were plenty of amenities at the cabin from games, dvd, and even a super nintendo! We tried to pack everything we needed for the week- not knowing how equipped the cabin was, and I think that there was everything that we needed there. We have no complaints from our stay. It was everything we expected, and the updated bathroom was a plus. We would recommend this cabin to anyone.
