Peaceful charming cottage near sleeping bear dunes and Lake Michigan
Peaceful charming cottage near sleeping bear dunes and Lake Michigan
We stayed in the meadow with our 4 kids! The owners were so helpful and nice! They have thought of everything in this house! The photos do not even do it justice! The house is in a peaceful beautiful setting, just across from the owners house! It feels very private! It situated in a big rolling meadow! The kids loved the outdoor shower and using the fire pit at night! We spotted many deer too! Everything you need is provided.. From extra trash bags, wood for fire pit, and kitchen supplies to area maps! The house is only 5-10 min from the sleeping bear dunes visitor center and the village of empire! It's also a short 30 min drive to traverse city! The most beautiful property! We spent most of our time exploring sleeping bear dunes national lakefront. We would definitely visit again!! And have already recommended to several friends!
