About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Opal’s Cottage offers you a comfortable, quiet, and private retreat space to relax, enjoy family and friends. The cottage is nestled in the pines and located just south of Manistee on a bluff with stunning views of Lake Michigan.

From the moment you turn into the drive and pass under the canopy of trees, you enter a space of tranquility and peace. A large deck on the lakeside of the house, leads to the “Tree House” a raised, screened in porch offers comfortable seating with stunning views and gentle breezes.

Guests will find tennis and basketball courts, showers, and a large accessible beach at the nearby Lakeland Association Club house. Located just 10 minutes from downtown Manistee shopping, golf, park, and the river walk, the cottage is a convenient home base for exploring West Michigan.

Eagles, deer, squirrel, chipmunks, and a great variety of birds are regular visitors to the cottage. Birch, pines, and oak trees adorn the property and offer shady places to sit. Below the bluff, down the stairway, miles of private sandy beach wait to be explored.

Children are always welcome. The cottage is perfect for two families or friends.

The Cottage sleeps up to 10 in three bedrooms (1 queen, 6 twins, and a full size sofa sleeper) and two baths. A well-appointed kitchen with views of the woods and lake make cooking a joy. Amenities include a microwave, blender, coffee grinder and maker, toaster, slow cooker and full sized range and refrigerator.

The central area of the house features an open floor plan with comfortable places to sit and combined kitchen, dining, and living area. Panoramic views of Lake Michigan abound from two of the three bedrooms and the great room opens out onto the wrap around deck to bring in sunshine and cooling breezes off the lake. A gas fireplace provides the perfect gathering place on cool evenings for friends and family.
