About the property

2 Bedroom, 1Bath Waterfront Cottage. Canoe on premise, dock.

Updated Washington Island cottage offers panoramic views of Lake Michigan. It is situated among mature hardwoods and is just steps from the water and a private pier.

The open-concept first floor provides plenty of room to enjoy life on the island with a spacious kitchen, dining area, living room, full bathroom and a utility/storage room. Large sliding glass doors open to face Lake Michigan, offering stunning views and filling the space with sunlight. The doors open to a large two-tier deck. The second floor has two large bedrooms, each with a sliding glass door that opens to a deck. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The second bedroom has two twin beds and two trundle beds. Renter to bring sheets, pillow cases, and towels.

The cottage is on Washington Island’s quiet east side. The neighbors are wonderful, but there’s plenty of privacy, too, with vacant wooded lots on both sides of the home and a state nature preserve across the street.

The views from this cottage are simply fantastic. The many moods of Lake Michigan. Sunrises. Sunsets. Wildlife galore. An occasional Great Lakes freighter in the distance. Early morning fog. A thunderstorm rolling in. It’s a continual feast for the eyes.

Washington Island is a place like no other. There’s a reason it is said to be north of the tension line. As the ferry slips across the seven miles of the Death’s Door strait, you feel the burdens of modern life fall away. You find yourself in a simpler time — a time that was a bit slower, a bit quieter, a bit friendlier.

Ten reasons to love Washington Island: (1) The people (2) A Great Lake all around (3) The unique appeal of each season (4) The quiet (5) Small-town life (6) The woods (7) The wildlife (8) The spectacular night sky (9) Schoolhouse Beach (10) Rock Island State Park.
