Adorable cottage with stunning view
This is a cute little cottage with a beautiful view. Has everything you could possibly want and need. The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously and look forward to coming back next summer.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you next year!
Excellent clean accommodations with all amenities you could need or use. Owner was more than willing to make adjustments due to my work schedule change at the last minute & take care of anything else needed immediately. The location & additional features like hot tub, boat docking, proximity to anything you could want in the area within minutes is a true plus!. I have to say it's the first time I ever took a nice short boat ride over to the next lake to pick up pizza & beer at a dockside location for the family... that was another positive advantage of this location. Oh, and the fishing was pretty good in the chain of lakes, but I had just as much fun pulling some nice fat bluegills right out of the channel off the end of the dock right in front of the place. Don't hesitate & don't second guess... you will thoroughly enjoy your stay..make sure to share it with friends, family &/or another couple, it's well worth it
This was a great little cabin, just a couple notes
Our stay was just a few days to be with friends and family for a funeral in a nearby town. It was perfect for our two ladies and a college-age daughter. Just a couple things that may be important for other travelers. 1) The stairs to get to the two bedrooms upstairs are very narrow and steep. For able-bodied folks it is perfectly doable, but if you are traveling with anyone who has an injury or balance issues, they would probably need to be downstairs (which is basically the ‘master’ bedroom with a great view of Small Portage Lake). 2) The water has a very strong sulfer smell. I know this is common in some places and there are no water quality issues, but if you aren’t familiar or prepared for this, it can be a bit of a surprise.
We had a minor plumbing issue but the owner was incredibly responsive and resolved it immediately. He was fabulous throughout our stay.
The location is great, the cabin is clean and well cared for with everything you’d expect to be there.
Thanks for the overall positive review! I have tried very hard to make it a sweet little escape. I have switched to a different type of softener salt which is supposed to eliminate more hydrogen sulfide (the eggy water smell). So we'll see if that works. I hope we can host you again!
Map location is incorrect. Cottage is at South West corner of the Bridge between Portage and Little Portage, on Little Portage Lake. Property is close to Stinchfield Woods, Beautiful U-M property open to day hiking. Hudson Mills Metropark is 2.2 miles south for running, Disc Golf, hiking , biking or Rollerblading. Golf Course is another few miles south. Close to the Potowahtomie Trail, a famous Mountain Bike Trail. State Land is all around, open for hunting in season. Fishing on the Huron Chain of Lakes, of which Little Portage is southernmost is fantastic. Little Portage is noted for panfish, Largemouth and Northern Pike. Several excellent golf courses are a short drive away, The village of Pinckney is a few miles to the North. It has a grocery, several fast food joints, a diner, several decent dining establishments and a bar or two. The village of Hell is about the same distance to the west. It is a biker mecca and has a great bar-restaurant with entertainment. You can spend a day cruising up the chain of Lakes and have the best pizza (and a lot more) at Zukey Lake Tavern.
