Summer, Spring, Fall & Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome location. My family has loved staying at this cottage year after year. It has always been a great getaway for us. We appreciate the well equipped kitchen, comfy couches, spacious bedrooms, a great area to sit outdoors. The Owner has been a delight to work with and is an excellent communicator. We walk daily to the beach and enjoy exploring the shops in Onekama, Manistee & Bear Lake. A short drive to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Arcadia Bluffs, Betsie River and the Manistee River. We always enjoy eating at M22 Grill and for fine dining the Glenwood is a delightful surprise. We have enjoyed hiking, fishing, golfing, mushroom hunting, riding bicycles, skiing, snow shoeing and enjoying the breathtaking sunsets. The cottage has been a perfect fit for our family, and I would highly recommend this home to a friend.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage in an excellent location. All the amenities of home but none of the stress! My family and I have stayed here for the last 4 years and will be again this summer! One block either way takes you to the beach. The renters are great and put a lot of detail into making our stay such an enjoyable one. You will not be disappointed!

More than you would expect from renting a cottage.

Owner goes above and beyond to make you feel at home in vacation. They even left a small (nice) welcoming gift :)

Updated place, modern look, plenty of supplies, clean, welcoming, not enough words to describe this wonderful cottage.

Nice place to stay on vacation!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our family vacation here. Home is clean and comfortable, nicely decorated. Easy walk to lake Michigan beaches (3-4 min walk straight to great beach). Took our bikes and we could keep them in the garage for safe keeping. Nice open floor plan to entertain. Enjoyed fire and smores out back at nights. Would recommend.

Awesome house in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful! It's literally an easy one to two city block walk to either Portage Lake orLake Michigan. The beach on Lake Michigan is just gorgeous. You almost feel like it's your own private beach. The appliances, furnishings and decor are very up-to-date and it's an extremely clean place. (Cleaner than most of the hotels we stayed in!) The owner leaves a manual, almost like the one you'd find in a tells you everything you need to know about the local area: where to get things, where to go for activities, local hot spots etc. It's extremely useful if you don't know the area well. We will definitely be booking again for next year.
