Property description

Awake to the early morning breathtaking beachfront sunrise. Take an early morning swim in Lake Huron or bike the 13 mile bike path from Alabaster to the Tawas Bay Lighthouse. Kayak Lake Huron, canoe the Ausable, shop Newman Street for the wines of the Brew Krew and Windjammer, look in the very upscale O'Connor's, and enjoy the Village Chocolatier's nationally acclaimed chocolates or catch a flick at the Family Theater. Cook on your own gas grill - or order in. Fish, golf, hike or just laze the day away. In Autumn enjoy the beautiful Harvest Moon which appears to rise directly out of Lake Huron in front of The Cottage. Enjoy the terrific fall color produced by the hardwoods of the Eastern Michigan shoreline. Ski in the winter on the well groomed ski trails of Corsair in the Huron Forest. A bottle of wine or box of chocolates welcomes you on arrival. This is an excellent place to get some well deserved down time, relax and regenerate your energy level for another week in the workplace.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I have just retired from running a training business for the criminal justice field - police, judges, dispatch, and federal agents. Before that I was a professor of communications. Served in Peace Corps in Africa. Have traveled extensively.

Why the Owner Chose Tawas City, MI, USA:
I bought The Cottage because it is next to my home on Lake Huron and therefore easy to manage and deal with the needs of my clients. I also enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories! It is especially nice for those looking to get away and enjoy some quality time.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Staying at The Cottage in the Fall is a real treat. Enjoy a later night fire and watch the moon rise over the lake. In the winter cross country ski in the Lake Huron Forest on the Corsair trails. Sleep on a pillow top mattress and have the soothing waves of Lake Huron lull you to sleep. Sip a steaming cup of coffee or tea and watch the sun rise. This is a place to be really lazy - or indulge in as many activities as one pleases -- biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, reading, sunbathing, skiing, wine drinking, etc.
