Property description

Recently Re-stored. Very Nice In Town, walking, biking/viewing river, freighters and fishing and pleasure boats.
Quaint/Comfortable! 'K's' is a picturesque cottage (sleeps six) that will bring you back in time. It has pretty tin ceilings, charming furniture and bright paint colors. The bi-level decks and covered porch are a perfect spot to hang out, relax, and watch the freighters on the St. Mary's River. DeTour Village is a quiet little town, camera ready with abundant nature, ever-changing water, and a colorful sunrise and sunset almost daily. On a clear night, the sky will light up with too many stars to count. For those who sail, the cottage is near the marina; the entrance to the North Channel and Canada.

'K's' Cottage is located downtown DeTour Village within walking distance of restaurants, neat shops, the marina, a grocery market, ice cream, a gas station, and the library. Five lighthouses are in DeTour Village or close by. Four casinos for your entertainment 30 minutes -1 hour drive from property. And, the cottage is a short drive along the Scenic Highway to more beautiful beaches. And, we recently found out that our area has 6 of the state's top 7 atractions within one hour to a day trip.

Burton Hills says 'Happiness is not a destination, it is a method of life' - So make DeTour Village your method!

Keywords: From this 'Cottage' rental in the Village, you can enjoy the Great Lake Freighters and the International 'Salties' - every one that goes up or down the St. Mary's River can be seen from this charming cottage. Consider a long weekend with a discount of $20 on a Breakfast for Two in one of our local restaurants.
