Enjoy a classic, cozy, Michigan cottage with views of Lake Michigan. It is nestled among towering oak trees. Michigan cottages have names and this one is naturally called MidOaks.
Located on a private road, yet close to many activities and only a 5 minute walk to miles of Lake Michigan beach. No long steps to navigate. There is also a small parking area/drop off spot near the entrance to the beach
The cottage is equipped with games, books, beach chairs, bikes...everything you could want for a great vacation.
Special summer activities abound in Montague which is only 15 minutes by car. There is a supermarket, drugstore with DVD rentals, gas station and farmers market, plus fireworks on the 4th!
Enjoy a hike in the nearby White River Barrier Dunes Sanctuary. You'll see deer, raccoon, possum, beaver, cranes, swans, you name it.
You can enjoy an old fashioned game of croquet in the large front yard. If you'd rather read a book there's a hammock for whiling away a quiet afternoon.
Fully equipped kitchen for gourmet cooking.
This has been our own cottage for over 20 years. The cottage was built in the 1940's with many updates including bathrooms and kitchen. It is decorated with country touches including lots of quilts.
You will find it has all the amenities you could ever want. Including no TV. Don't worry we have WIFI. But it's a great place to turn off the outside world of work.
In the winter, enjoy the warmth of a large wood burning fireplace after an afternoon of cross country skiing. If you're more inclined towards indoor activities, the cottage is stocked with books, games, puzzles and more. WIFI available.
The large living room has a vaulted ceiling and a wood burning fireplace. My husband chops and splits all the wood himself, so you'll never run out.
Sunsets are amazing this time of year, with an afterglow that fills the sky.
Lake Michigan freezes into a moon like landscape with 10 foot frozen drifts and a walk on the beach is actually quite remarkable.
If there is snow, which there usually is, you can cross country ski from your front door through the woods. There is also ice fishing on White Lake.
We have 4 sets of cross country skis, but you'll need your own boots.
The Fall colors are spectacular. If you are a biker, you'll love the deserted roads that circle Lake Michigan.
We have beach toys, games and books for all ages. The front yard is large enough for croquet and even a wiffle ball baseball game. Great place to see all kinds of animals including deer, wild turkeys, eagles, hawks, great blue heron, swans, foxes, and raccoons...moreless
