About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

A traditional, Michigan, lakefront cottage/home on a bluff 6 miles north of Rogers City. This cozy home accommodates 4 - 6 people with most amenities. Great beach walks, sunrises and sunsets.

About Chris Kurowski

If you like a quiet place where you can relax, listen to the waves hitting the shoreline, enjoy a breeze off the water, have a refreshment on the deck over looking Lake Huron and explore the shores of Michigan you have found the right place.

Chris Kurowski purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Chris Kurowski chose Northeast

I purchase this cottage in 1998 for my family to enjoy and get away from our busy schedule. In 2006 my wife passed away and my kids moved to a new life thereafter on the west coast. The cottage rather than be an vacant nice place is now a year round home to anyone interested in wanting to enjoy the outdoors or just relax to their own schedule. Most guests return the following year for they have confirmed Relaxation on Lake Huron is just what says it is.

What makes this cottage unique

The great view of the water is unbeatable. Just terrific. You will be awed. If you like walks down the beach you will always remember this one. The 40 Mile Point light house is just 3/4 of a mile north and it will entertain your interest. Bicycling, walking, running, or just loafing will be energized with the possibilities presented. A 10 mile paved path that boarders the water and winds through some of the forests will open your mind to the beauty of Michigan.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I received this review from a long time customer who does NOT book through VRBO but books directly with myself. I thought I would share this for everyone to see.

Thank you again for the use of your cottage. We received the returned deposit before we even returned home. We had a great time and the weather was perfect. It isn’t often you can get into Lake Huron and stay in it as long as you like.

The bed was nice. Anna slept on it and Sarah on the futon. It was so warm/humid a few nights that we kept them apart. It worked out just fine.

We were thinking this was the eighth time we have stayed at the cottage in August. Sarah, now 7, was only a little over five months old when we first stayed. Anna is 11 years old now. Our family loves R.C. and your cottage is definitely a part of some of our best family memories.

Thank you again!

Quiet and Lovely

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a place to be away from noise, people, and enjoy the serene sounds of lapping waves, look no farther! Thoroughly enjoyable and re-energizing.

Secluded Cottage on Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, actually better than most up-north cottages by having a little more updated feel. It was clean and tidy, uncluttered and inviting. The spacious lot had serene woods plus of course a great stairway to the private beach on beautiful Lake Huron. One of my dogs wouldn't let the cold October water keep him out. We had a great, relaxing time enjoying Michigan Autumn. We didn't see the bald eagles, but my brave dog did get acquainted with a porcupine! It could've been a lot worse, but he survived with just a few quills as souvenirs. I guess the stay wasn't all completely relaxing ;) It was an interesting experience!

Clean quarters, beautiful & secluded location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights. Had a wonderful time. The house was clean and spacious. The online pictures of the property didn't do it justice. It is actually larger and more beautiful than the pictures show. There are neighbors on each side of the property but there are enough trees in between the properties to make you feel completely secluded. Other than the birds, squirrels and chipmunks, the only visitor we had was the neighbors little dog.

Our only complaint would be that the washer wasn't working properly. The cold water was draining out of it as quickly as it was going in. If you'd like to use the washer while you're there, you might want to ask the owner if he'd have it serviced.

We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great response. I was using my home the week prior to your visit and used the washer on small and medium loads without an issue. I will look into this new issue. On your response on animals around the home I have new residence in the large white pine in the center of the yard. There is a family of bald eagles there. They located themselves in the spring and there are 2 chicks. They are very noisy at times during feeding. Viewing of the nest can be seen with binoculars. Huge nest at the very top of the tree.

Perfect! Met or exceeded every expectation.

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious and quiet, on a lovely wooded lot complete with fire pit, porch swing, and lake access. We enjoyed walking along the lakeshore, bikeriding along the paths and to the lighthouse, floating on the tubes, and making nightly campfires. We brought our own canoe for sunrises paddles and had the added bonus of seeing a shipwreck off the shore from the lighthouse. Overall, it was a wonderful setting for a family vacation with lots of time to enjoy each other's company in a very relaxed, natural setting.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Relaxation on Lake Huron. It was just as wonderful as the first time. The cabin is cozy, clean, and has a gorgeous view of the lake. It is set back in the woods overlooking the lake, so even though you know there are neighbors on each side, you can't see them. Even when you are down on the beach, it is like your own private excursion. We had a peaceful, quiet and relaxing time. Owner has six bikes in garage for guests to use. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants to have some quiet time and reconnect with family and nature. There are some great trails that run along side of the shore of Lake Huron right into Rogers City. It was an extra bonus that we could bring our pet and that it was okay with the property owner. I'm not sure who loved it more, us or the dog :) Great bakery nearby and coffee from the Painted Lady are welcome bonuses.
