Quaint Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect Overnight Girl' Time!

There were 4 of us Ladies and we really enjoyed the Lake Cottage. It had everything we needed.

It was decorated so cute, and the decks were great with the outdoor lighting and the wood that was provided for the Bon Fire was much appreciated! All the extra touches were very nice.

Kristen was a treat to communicate with and we enjoyed our stay. Very close to DTE. Will definitely stay here again when in this area!

Just like being "Up North"

  • 5 of 5

Kristen, our host, could not have been more accommodating. The pictures do not do the cottage justice. It is very charming & well appointed with tranquil lake views. Beds are super comfy. You really do feel like you are "Up North" yet close to restaurants & shopping. I will never stay in a hotel again if the cottage is available when I'm in the area.

This lake cottage was absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Very cozy and quiet. Gorgeous view of the lake. The cottage is a home away from home. It was perfect! The owners were very attentive and helpful. I would book this home every year.
