About the property

Upgraded Lake House, out the door to the beach, sunroom, 4 bedroom, 2 bath,

Back in 1951 our parents were visiting a friend from Michigan State Collage and had such a great time they bought a lot, built a cottage and called it Roemanse. They were the first cottage on the road. It has been remodeled several times and is now a year around.It was a much slower pace back then with very few people and activities. Now word has gotten out and many visitors have discovered this wonderful part of the state. The lake offers so much fun. We are located right on the lake. The beach is just 25 steps out the door. There are two real nice patios. The front patio overlooks the lake and beach. It has a table that seats 6 or more. The back patio has the grill and a picnic table. Of course the view is the best. You can see the lake from the large sun room, large living room, kitchen, dining room, both small bedrooms and one master bedroom. Roemanse has a super 'flow' with the bedrooms on each side and the activity rooms in the middle. Just relax and enjoy yourself.

About Nancy R Ingram

Meet Nancy and Bill 'Renny'. We are a retired sister and brother team. We have vacationed in the Lake City area since 1950 and we still do. With our parents, our 99 year old father still living, we travelled all around the United States of America when we were young, however, our family always had time to spend at the Lake House in Lake City whenever we could. As we grew, married, had children and now grandchildren - we still gravitate back to our favorite little resort town - that of Lake City, Michigan located on the edge of beautiful Lake Missaukee. We look forward to the Greatest Fourth in the North every year, with four generations of our family gathering to take part in the festivities, including the July 4th parade. We, Nancy and Renny, left to get our degrees, work our careers, and finally retire - it is in Lake City area that we still currently live for six months out of the year. This Lake House represents our family's passionate history, love, fun, relaxation, and pride. Sharing with families as a rental, is a tribute to our Lake House memories. Welcome to our Lake House - we will make sure you have a great experience and we know you will develop positive memories of your own.

Nancy R Ingram purchased this cottage in 1950

Why Nancy R Ingram chose Northern Michigan

Visualize a Lake House on the east-side beach of beautiful Lake Missaukee - walking distance to downtown. The property was passed down to us from our parents and all four of us enjoyed this location for vacations from the time we were young ones. In the 1950's, being able to walk across the street to Dog and Suds, the laundromat, and meat market were places in our little world that were special. These places are gone now and replaced by other meaningful and memorable shops, eateries and mom and pop stores. Showcasing our lake house cottage is done with pride and honor as it represents years of fun, relaxation, and slower living off the clock with our parents. Now, being able to offer our Lake House as a rental to families during key vacation times, helps us share the love of a beautiful place and location that will help others develop fond memories. Your family will enjoy this Lake House as much as we do. A special place, with a prime location, being able to walk out the door to relax, play, and have peace. We encourage you to contact us - 231-878-9719 - with any questions that you may have.

What makes this cottage unique

Lots and lots of windows. Great ventilation. Super view of the beach and lake. Newly renovated. Walk out the door and just steps to the beach. Best location on the lake - east side. Shallow lake bottom at the beach front with the finest swimming for adults and kids. Clear water, gently rolling waves on a breezy day, smooth as glass on a calm day. All sport lake with boating, skiing, fishing with a fantastic view. Patios in front and back for relaxation. Dingy boat to row to boat buoy. Beach toys. Fire pit. Shaded areas to get out of the sun. Need to experience!

What a great place in a great location! Spacious and open. Cool 70's decor with modern amenities and just enough nostalgic pieces to make it feel quite comfortable! Excellent cross-breeze through the house from the lake. The thermometer read over 90 degrees but we weren't feeling it, very nice nice design!

Very comfortable and roomy. Gas and charcoal barbecue grills to suit your choice. Excellent selection of LPs (albums for you youngsters) and stereo phono to provide a wonderful blast into music popular music history. We enjoyed the games in the sunroom/family room as well as some of the books in the bookcases (I found the hidden treasure of the 5-year diary). The beach was fantastic and the kids loved the Roeboat! I'd recommend this place to any of my friends or family. Thanks again for sharing this wonderful getaway!

Our nice cottage is located on beautyful Lake Missaukee, Lake Missaukee is an all sports lake. It is best known for its beaches (there are none better than ours), swimming areas (ours is sandy with a gental slope), fishing from shore or boat, water skiing, scuba diving, boating, walking the beach, relaxing on the beach, sand castle building, kayaking, and of course you can view the lake from most of our rooms or sit on the lakeside patio to watch the water activities or enjoy the best sunset views on the lake.

Lake City and area citys offer many activities, shopping, food and entertainment. You must try the Tasty Treat, (Lake City) they have the biggest ice cream cones in the north. Need a cold beer strool into the Town Pump (lake City) for a home town crowd and brew. Most are located just 1 to 20 miles from our cottage.
