Great Lake Retreat
Great Lake Retreat
This is a wonderful Michigan cottage offering enough space for one large family or two mid-sized families. We shared it with another family during our July 2013 stay and found it to be well-equipped to handle our needs. We had a total of 11 and never felt cramped. Large kitchen with plenty of counter space to prepare and set out meals. Table for 8 and additional seating on the front porch (which is what we seemed to prefer). Incredible shaded front and back areas provided just the right break from the mid-day sun and the constant breeze was incredible too. With access to Portage Lake right across the street and to Lake Michigan just a short walk away, we were constantly enjoying the water and proving that Onekama's slogan being "A Two Lake Town" was absolutely spot-on. Great recreational boating and fishing in Portage Lake and then some wave riding, sunsets and scenic coastal views out on Lake Michigan. Incredible. We also enjoyed lots of relaxing walks along Lake Michigan and the surrounding Portage Point side streets. Began every morning with a jog out to the natural fresh water spring down the street. Enjoyed a fun trip up the road to Arcadia where we parked at the "Old Baldy Trailhead" and walked the shaded 1.5 mile trail out to the "Old Baldy" dune. After scampering down to the bottom and a swim in Lake Michigan, it was time to begin the trip back up. Very challenging. Almost as large as the Sleeping Bear dunes, but isolated and free. Then we spent 20 minutes admiring the wonderful lake/coastal view and back out to the car. Great 2 hour excursion. Lots of ways for the kids to entertain themselves in a unique family-friendly environment. Bring a bike and a beach chair and settle in for one relaxing getaway!
