"I've stayed at the Cottage Garden Guesthouse many times over the years and in every season. This little gem sparkles, whether surrounded by the lush summer gardens designed and tended by the owner (whose design sense and green thumb are amazing!) or covered in autumn leaves or big puffy snowflakes (the better to enjoy the gas Franklin stove).
As another reviewer put it, you open the door and just BREATHE! The kitchen is vintage charm, with everything you need for housekeeping, BBQs, cozy homemade dinners, whatever your mood calls for. The cottage is on a lake bluff surrounded by pines, and the breezes are heaven! You can look across Lakeview Lake from the upstairs living room, or best of all, from the sliding glass doors in the downstairs bedroom. If you're lucky, at sundown on a warm summer night you may be treated to a short bagpipe concert from far across the lake.
The decor is beautifully designed rustic charm, with lots of warm woods, touches of shabby chic, and all-around comfort. There's a nice patio outside the bedroom with cafe table and chairs, and a Weber grill. One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the patio with a good book and just watch the little nuthatches at the feeders, or the chipmunks darting in and out of the gardens.
Pure, blessed peace! There's no other place quite like it."

"What a wonderful two weeks, we spent at least 5 nights at Esch Beach just watching the beautiful sunset's over Lake Michigan. Nice end to relaxing day. We spent time in Manistee seeing the harbor, eating lunch and looking thru so many Antique Shops. Then topped if off with the House of Flavors Icecream. If you haven't been to Glen Arbor, next time don't miss it. What a beautiful little town. If your hungry go to Art's and have a bacon cheese burger. You may have a wait, but is well worth it. Also the original Cherry Republic Store is there. A must stop, and a good place for Michigan gifts to take back home. We did something different every day and had a wonderful time. Sleeping Bear has to be my favorite place just for it's beauty, a must see. Knowing that every evening you could come back home to the cottage and feel right at home. Enjoy the hot tub or just sit out on the swing and listen to the pines, roast a few marshmallows, or challenge your mate to a game of pool. The Wayberry Cottage has it all and more. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did. We try to make it up there every year just because it's the perfect place to go and relax."
