                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The 1920's guest house is completely charming: the retro kitchen with eating nook, the completely pine paneled living room to the dorm room that has pine paneling on the walls and ceiling. Come back to a time when life was simple. Relax on the patio with family and friends and watch the sun set through the trees. Take a stroll on the sandy beach of Lake Michigan, listen to the gentle waves and let your cares fall away.
