About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Come and enjoy this relaxing, open-concept, Michigan lakefront 'home away from home.' Located in the middle of Michigan near Clare. We have recently renovated the main floor and kitchen. You and your family can't help but have a great time with 93 feet of lake frontage with a sandy bottom for swimming. The cottage has 1500 square feet, with 3 bedrooms and one large bathroom on the main floor and a half bath upstairs.

Activities include swimming, boating, biking and fishing for bass, bluegill, crappie and pike.

Amenities include a picnic table and outdoor furniture, gas barbecue and smoker, rowboat, 4-person paddleboat, 2 kayaks, aluminum dock, swim platform and firepit. A free public boat launch is available to launch your boat, pontoon or jetski.

Lake George is a 134 acre all-sports lake. There is no wake from 7:30pm-11am. This allows for both high energy boating, and quiet-time for fishing or relaxing by the bonfire.

PLEASE NOTE: Water is 2-3 feet deep at seawall with gradual drop off. Depth at swim platform is around 5-7 feet. We rent Friday to Friday. Check in time is 3pm and check out time is 1pm.

My family spent a week at the cottage and we all loved it! The lake water was like bath water! It was so warm! We loved paddle boating during the no wake hours. The kitchen was perfect for making meals and eating together. There is no cell service or internet. We were "off the grid" for one whole week. The cottage was clean. the area was quiet. Overall, it was a GREAT time!

We stayed at the lake house for a week mid July and had the most perfect weather. Kept local for the most part but did a day trip to Mackinaw island midweek. The lake is beautifully maintained. No weeds, warm water temp and no wake periods in late evening and early morning allowed time for power boats and other non-motorized enjoyment too. Good family time fishing, playing games, kayaking and swimming we had by all. It was nice to "unplug" for the week, as cellular service is basically nonexistent at the property and our 2 teenagers managed just fine with very little whining. :)

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

First let me say that Dean and Melissa made planning our rental a breeze. So organized and we knew just what to expect when we got there. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking and it was lovely. Plenty of kitchen seating. Our family included three generations. The grandkids played in the water all day. It's sandy and they could jump off the raft and dock. We had fires every night, we put together puzzles when it rained and took bike rides into town. There are golf courses nearby and the little ones enjoyed fishing with Grandpa. The older kids took their jeep to a local off road track. Thanks Dean and Melissa, we had a great summer vacation!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I rented this cottage with our families and it was a perfect getaway. The kids loved the warm lake with the boats and floating dock, and we loved the big modern kitchen that made it easy to cook and serve large meals. Every night we enjoyed a campfire and s'mores. The owners were very accommodating and quick to answer emails and questions. We loved this place and highly recommend it!

Great Family Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family usually tries to vacation at different cottages on different lakes each year. This is the first year we stayed here on Lake George and we ALL want to come back next year!! The cottage is spacious and clean. The kitchen is fully stocked. The bathroom is updated, large and clean. The washer and dryer are newer and very convenient. The bedrooms are roomy and the beds are comfortable. The large back porch is great for storage and fun!! The lake is great for water recreation and for fishing. The cabin is close to the water and the breeze is refreshing! (great sleeping conditions!) We have gone up north for 30 plus years and it is very rare that we go to the same place twice but this cottage has everything we love! We brought our speed boat and our fishing boat and the dock was perfect. Plenty of space to sit and fish too!! We had family members with us ranging in age from 4 through 75 and it was perfect for all! The cottage is close enough to Mt Pleasant and Claire to run out to the store or the casino but not so close that you feel like you haven't left the city. Dean and Melissa have done a great job with updates and maintenance to ensure a great experience for their renters. There are plenty of chairs and lake toys at the cabin that are available for renters use so you don't have to bring your own. The weather was too hot for a bonfire but the pit is right there and the view of the lake is spectacular! This is a great cottage at a great value. The only problem was that the time flew by so fast! Thank you Dean and Melissa for a wonderful family vacation! See you next year!!!!
