About the owner: I am a teacher who rents the cottage as a side business. The cottage is warm, kid friendly and I hope you will enjoy at as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Manistee: I bought this property because it is right across the street from Lake Michigan, where I can view fabulous sunsets, but also sit on the back deck and enjoy a glass of wine looking out at peacefull Bar Lake. The house has easy access to everything, town, casino, dunes. It's location is great for running the beach, or biking and running Lake Shore Drive. It is also located next to a bird sancturary, with a nice hiking trail.
