                                                            What a beautiful vintage cottage located right on Lake Michigan! We spent most of week sitting on the wonderful porch overlooking the beach and "Big Red" lighthouse. The cottage truly has a historic charm, with the original breadboard walls and transom windows in the bedrooms. There is a cool breeze blowing at all times. The house is very clean and filled with antiques and cozy sitting spots. The kitchen's commercial stove is a dream for a cook. We loved this place and will definitely be back.

                                                            Beautiful views

                                                            Wonderful two story cottage right on the beach. You can set on the front porch, watch the sun set and see Big Red lighthouse all at the same time! Lots of room for several couples or families.

                                                            We have stayed here the last three years and enjoy it more each time we stay here. Highly recommended.

                                                            A place on the beach


                                                            We have stayed at the Nautilus numerous time and I always marvel that a few hours away from our home in Indianapolis we can be sitting on one of the most beautifull beaches I have ever experienced. The cottage has a front porch that is a great place to gaze out at Lake michigan with a cup of coffee in the morning or view the sunset over cocktails in the evening. Truly a lovely spot and a very comfortable cottage to enjoy it from.



                                                            Our family has rented the "Nautilus" cottage for the past six years. We have always found it to be very neat and clean. It is on Lake Michigan with a wide beach and has a great view of "Big Red" . The house is well equipped and is suitable for four couples. The open front porch is great! With a porch swing ,rocking chairs and table and benches for eating . we highly recommend this cottage.
