Located on a secluded, wooded peninsula on Portage Lake and Lake Michigan. Navigable channel connects the two lakes. Three hundred yard walk to the west onto 10 miles of uninterrupted, mostly uninhabited, beautiful sand beaches on Lake Michigan.

The second bedroom has a full bed and private bath. Laundry room with washer and dryer also has a half bath. Upstairs is like a dorm room with 3 sleeping berths that have queen beds, reading lights, and curtains to draw for privacy. The dorm and also has a bunkbed and a single cot. This gives the dorm the ability to sleep up to 9 people. This cottage is great for bringing 1 or 2 dogs. There are two outdoor dog runs giving your pets plenty of space to hang out when unattended.
This location lends itself to all sorts of outdoor activities. Biking, walking, and jogging. Boating, water skiing, fishing, jet skiing, and sailing. Canoeing and tubing local rivers. Fishing Portage Lake for all the fresh water game fish. Charter fishing available for Salmon and Trout on the big lake and world class local Trout and Salmon streams. Relaxing on the beautiful beaches. Traveling up the coastline on M22, one of the most scenic drives in America, to the quaint villages along the route offering unique shopping opportunities.
