Property description

The cottage sleeps up to six surrounded in gracious linens and country charm. Spend the summer days swimming, sunning, or strolling along the shore, or head for antique shops, wineries, breweries, galleries in Three Oaks or nearby state parks. Visit our local butcher shop, fruit stands, farmers' markets and bakery for a home-made feast or go to the Red Arrow Roadhouse, Blue Plate Cafe, Redamack's or Oink's for fun and casual dining. Or, maybe just relax in the shade on the huge screened porch---and do nothing.

Open year round, there is always a good time at Harbor Country Cottages - and don't forget your pets!

About the owner: I love playing with my nieces on the beach!

Why the Owner Chose Lakeside:
We love this cottage because you can drive to the cottage from Chicago or many parts of Michigan and Indiana in less than an hour and a half, then walk to the beach in less than 5 minutes. There are lots of restaurants, shops and fun things to do in Harbor Country--it's a great place to come in any season.

We have designed the cottage so that you don't need to bring anything but food and drink. All linens, fully equipped kitchen, cable TV and wifi and all the conveniences of home are provided to make your stay as relaxing as possible.
