"The Otherside" offers the very unique experience of staying in a beautifully renovated cottage, once a shanty of Fishtown.
Step out on the dock to watch the fishing boats and the boats of The Manitou Island Transit coming and going on the river. Watch the tourists on the other side of the river going in and out of the Fishtown's "shanty" shops. Meander through all the shops and restaurants in town. Walk to Van's Beach on Lake Michigan or North Beach on the other side of the river.
This comfortable, well furnished, wood paneled, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage, originally built in early 1900 and remodeled by the Carlson brothers around 2000 , has a long history which guests can learn about when they visit us for a week. This unique opportunity to spend a week or more in a one-of-a-kind property is offered through the Fishtown Preservation Society of Leland. It can sleep up to 6 people.
