The moment you walk into the Sunset Cottage, you'll feel like you're home with central air and wifi. The open floor plan invites you out to a large outdoor deck where you'll be kicking back, watching the swans, and enjoying real lakefront living. Enjoy the boardwalk and have your favorite beverage in our 'tea booth' under the weeping willow tree. This spacious yard and deck is equipped with a gas barbecue and three umbrella tables to accommodate 20. Relax in the 'Big Daddy' double Adirondack chairs near the bonfire pit--everything you need to just chill. For privacy, 18 evergreen trees line the property.

Cass Lake Bay is ideal for kayaks and paddle boards as it is a no-wake bay. At the beginning of the bay it opens up into the all-sports Cass Lake where you will need a pontoon boat to cruise the 1280 acre lake and see some of the unique homes and 40,000 plus sq. ft. mansions. Bring your boat and dock it in front of the Cottage or rent one from a local marina. There is docking with cleats for two boats in front of the Cottage. Swim, fish off the boardwalk, have a game of bocce or just relax.

Located on Cass Lake Bay in Oakland County. Cass Lake is so large it changes cities four times: Keego Harbor, Orchard Lake, West Bloomfield, and Waterford Township and is the largest inland all-sports lake in Southeastern Michigan.

The State Park, Dodge Park #4, is located at the beginning of Cass Lake Bay with 139 acres and one mile of shoreline with a beautiful sandy beach. The boat launch is very convenient to Sunset Cottage.

The fully equipped granite and maple kitchen opens into the dining area which flows into the Lakefront Great Room. The spacious Lakefront Great Room offers beautiful views of the bay. Two leather sofas, a recliner, including a leather queen-size sofa bed, with a memory foam mattress, makes this the perfect comfortable place to listen to music and to watch movies. Just right for entertaining family and friends.

The Master Suite has a queen-size, four post bed, recliner, flat screen HD TV, powder room, and walk-in closet. The Lakefront Bedroom has a queen-size bed and a full size bed. The third bedroom has a queen-size bed.

The Cottage sleeps comfortably eight adults in queen beds, and one full size bed.

Sleeps 9-10 guests.

Please visit VRBO #90352 next door.

There is an 'Up North' feeling at Sunset Cottage as you look across the bay at the trees. All the seasons in Michigan are magical!

We Love the Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 8th summer that we have returned to the Lake House. The house is beautiful, clean and furnished with everything you could possibly need to have a comfortable stay. Personally, I love the great room. It is so beautiful and tranquil. My children have enjoyed playing in the loft year after year. They also enjoy fishing and swimming in the lake. In the evenings they love roasting marshmallows and making smores in the fire pit. The Lake House has become our home away from home and Kip and Ricca have become dear friends. We look forward to coming back for many years to come.

Perfect From Beginning to End

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ricca and Kip for a perfect week in October for our daughter's wedding. The houses were perfect and the weather you ordered was also perfect. It is obvious that you take pride in your properties. We could not have asked for more. Everything was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. I recommend either house for any family gathering or getaway. The scenery was beautiful. Our families were thrilled. Please let me know if I can ever provide more recommendations to any one. Good luck and thank you! Lesli White

Great Cottage On the bay of Cass Lake!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the perfect location for a group of friends to the spend the weekend on the lake. The cottage had a great dock capable of docking two good size boats. The location on the bay is a very short ride (5min) to the main lake. We had no problem sleeping 9 adults comfortably. The cottage had a nice deck with patio sets and a fire pit down in the lawn for an evening fire. There was enough driveway space to accommodate 5 vehicles and the owners were nice enough to let us park our pontoon boat trailer in their driveway. The owners were very responsive during our stay to any questions or concerns we had. The boat launch at the State park was also very close for convenience. We had a great time and would definitely consider to rent here again.

Nice cottage and nice owner

  • 5 of 5

our group including 6 adults and 4 kids really like the Sunset Cottage. The hosts Kip and Ricca were so nice. Kip gave us a tour of the lake on their boat. The lake was beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed fishing everyday and seeing the beautiful swans. And also shopping area is so close. Would definitely return.

Owner's Response: It was wonderful to meet your family. We are so happy that you were the first to see our just completed new seawall and boardwalk, and also the first to sit in our new "tea booth" under the weeping willow tree! We look forward to seeing you again.

Great cottage for water lovers

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my family's stay as we were in town for a wedding and visiting friends since we moved out of state. It's clean, owners are super friendly and helpful throughout our stay and we rented a pontoon boat for 2 days which was perfect for when our friends visited and went boating for the day. Location is near state boat launch and convenient to shops in the area. We will definitely rent this cottage again in the near future.
