The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004
a perfect setting off the track, but close to anything 'upnorth', large property with a 'buy me, you won't be dissappointed' message.
Nature wonderland; frogs, beavers, fox, eagles, sounds of howling (coyotes...wolves?) fish. hammock snoozes, completed books, campfires, smores, more fish, flowers, peace, 'on golden pond 'ambiance, cozy comfort everywhere, wood on floors and walls is serene
Your cabin is such a lovely place in all ways.
I was completely stressed out when we arrived and completely blissful when we left.
It was just right for my father and son too, who shared the upstairs bedroom.
I loved the dishware in the kitchen and all the green, yellow and orange glass accents. So pretty.
I left a comment. Hope it encourages others to stay at your place.
We had the pleasure of celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary, and could not have been more pleased. The pictures do not show the true beauty of the cabin or area. What a wonderful place to relax and unwind from your busy life. We definitely want to return next year.
This is a beautiful cottage with all the amenities of home. It was such a relaxing atmosphere for early morning coffee on the deck, afternoon float on the kayak and evening by the fire. Would highly recommend.
This was our first visit to Michigan and staying at the Lily Pad made that visit even more enjoyable because it is a well-laid out, charming cottage with a wonderful deck over-looking Lake Lancaster. Matt and Lesley are very responsive and helpful, the cottage is clean and well-kept, and we will definitely recommend The Lily Pad to anyone wanting a relaxing, rather picture-perfect setting on the lake. Great cottage!!
Our stay here was wonderful! The cabin has charming decorations, a beautiful view and plenty of privacy. The only thing missing is reliable wifi and phone service, otherwise there was nothing else I could have asked for.
Very nice place right on the lake. It was hot but the deck had shade and we could sit outside. Would rent again.
Beautiful view of the lake, used the 12' aluminum boat, but fished off the dock and caught a couple bluegill. The quiet mornings and evenings we listened to the loons call across the lake. The kitchen cooking utinsels and serving-ware were well stocked. The bed was comfortable and we slept in most days. Within a 20 minute drive to Cross village, Cheboygen or Mackinaw when we didn't feel like cooking. A great grocery store, farm market, and fishing supplies within a 15 minute drive. Comfortable chairs and loungers on the deck provided for a relaxing view of the lake to ponder the more important things in life. A large fire pit and good supply of wood helped us to celebrate our last evening at the lily pad. I would recommend the Lily Pad for those who want to relax and recharge.
We can take you on a tour of your choice of 2 other locally owned properties if interested: a historical Foursquare Colonial Home & Carriage House restored from the early 1900's "Pearlview"- relocated from "Main Street" to a sunset bluff on the shores of Paradise Lake: or visit a Native Indian landing area on a 150 foot high bluff & sandy beach north of Harbor Springs with a romantic "Bliss style" log cabin from the 1950's named "Shorecabin" ---these properties are privately owned &(loved)& available for weekly/monthly rentals! We can recommend many great experiences "up north". . .for kids & adults!
