"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this farmhouse. It is secluded and serene, yet still just a short drive from the many points of interest in the western Thumb. The bedrooms and spacious and well-appointed; you would easily pay 2x or 3x as much for similar square footage elsewhere. The owner of the property is friendly, and responsive to your needs.
The house includes a full kitchen, dining area, and large living room; plus a large lawn in front and back. Plus you have free access to fresh-laid eggs each morning! Perhaps the only thing the property could use is more cups, plates, and other kitchenware."

"Super clean, lots of little extra's we appreciated:) S'mores supplies, popcorn and coffee. Just wish the beds would have been made up when we arrived. Would definitely recommend this cottage to friends!"

"Beautiful home, great location with everything you need for the perfect getaway! We had 7 girls and there was plenty of room and we all had a blast. Sat on the beach, watched wild life and the one day it rained we sat in the gazebo and watched the storm roll in over the lake. Already booked a date for next year and cannot wait to go back. Matt and Mary were very accomodating. Love this place!"

"I recently decided to take a last minute trip from my home in New Mexico to visit relatives in the Lapeer Michigan (where I was born and raised) area. I stayed with a close cousin for a few days in North Branch and an aunt in Davison for a few more. My dilemma was that I have a daughter with a large family (four children) who wanted to come up to see me from Ohio for a few days. I didn't want to impose on other family members to provide room for my daughter and her kids, so I searched on-line for a cottage rental in the Lapeer area.
I was happy to find this cottage tucked away on quiet Potters Lake. It is very close to all the amenities one may need while on holiday, what with Lapeer located only six miles to the east. I found the cottage very much to my liking as it was warm and cozy with a tremendous amount of room and a fantastic view of the lake.
The owners, Mike and Lori, were extememely nice and very accommodating. They went out of their way to insure that I had everything I needed to make my stay an enjoyable experience. They respected my privacy completely, yet made themselves available with a quick phone call should a need arise.
I am looking forward to going back to Potters Lake during a warmer month (my thin New Mexican blood in mind) and sharing this great cottage and Potters Lake experience with my wife and two younger children in the near future.
Thanks again for a great time Mike and Lori.
