Property description

Our cottages are located on the west shore of Lime Lake just 8 miles east of Glen Arbor and 3 miles from Lake Michigan public beaches in Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Lime Lake is a 700 acre spring-fed lake with crystal clear waters perfect for all water activities. Whether sailing, waterskiing or just floating in a tube, there is something for everyone. With brown trout, small mouth bass and abundant pan fish, it’s great fun for kids of all ages.

We offer over 400 feet of sandy shoreline that is safe for children as it deepens gradually. Our lakefront cottages are surrounded by a large lawn area and each cottage comes with its own dock, 14-foot Lund aluminum boat, picnic table and charcoal grill.

Built in the 1950’s and reminiscent of summer cottages of days past, the cottages have been updated with modern conveniences. Each cottage has two bedrooms, fully-equipped kitchenettes, living room with cable TV and bathroom with shower. Blankets and pillows are furnished, but you must bring your own sheets and towels. We are proud of the clean, well-kept condition of the cottage and grounds and are confident you will enjoy your stay with us.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Tax Rate 6%


Spring and Fall rates $105 per night for 3+ nights.

During the summer weeks our preference is to rent by the week, with our weeks running Sat to Sat. If we do not fill a week we would consider renting a shorter time but will not commit until a week or two before the dates. Our nightly rates are based on how many nights you stay, the more nights the better the rate. Call for a nightly rate quote.

To reserve, a deposit of 50% of the rental amount is due at booking with the balance including 6% tax due 30 due before the arrival date.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery and attractions that Northern Michigan has to offer. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore offers miles of public Lake Michigan beaches and plenty of hiking trails. You can visit the historic Leland Harbor and Fishtown (even take the ferry to South Manitou Island for a day). Winery tours, Interlochen National Music Camp and shopping in Leland, Glen Arbor and Northport are just a few of the opportunities available! This area has some of the finest fishing in all of Michigan. Lime Lake is noted for its brown trout and small mouth bass. There are also pike, perch and abundant panfish. Lake Michigan, Glen Lake and Lake Leelanau and noted rivers like the Betsie, Platte and Crystal are only minutes away - a true fisherman's dream!
