About the Property

Cottage, 9 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Beautiful cottage in premier location on the Bay side of historic Bay View, MI. Almost every room has a “Bay View.” Relax on the covered wrap around porch while sipping a drink and watching the stunning Bay View sunsets over the water. This 3500 plus square feet cottage is so large that 16 people can have privacy and alone time in any number of the rooms, including the TV room, the back deck, the wrap around front porch, the dining room, the large living room, the kitchen, several other porches on the top floor, or in any of the lovely bedrooms. Nicely decorated throughout. There is a wet bar off of the kitchen. There is a back deck where the charcoal and gas grills are. Almost every bedroom has its own sink, and all have clean linens, towels, and room fans provided.
There is no air conditioning.

It is the closest rental cottage to the beach, the recreation area and the tennis courts. Stunning sunsets! The 9 bedrooms include 2 king beds, 3 queen beds, 2 double beds and 2 twin beds. Downstairs has 1 king and 1 queen bedrooms which connect to each other, with a door that closes for privacy. There is a half bath in one of them and a full bath in the other. Upstairs has a king bedroom, 2 queen bedrooms, 2 double bedrooms and 2 single bedrooms. The king bedroom connects to a sitting room so is more like a suite. Two double bedrooms have connecting doors to each other. The 2 twin bedrooms connect with an outside porch. One upstairs queen bedroom has its own porch. The other queen bedroom has a nice view of the tennis courts opposite us and the lake. Six of the seven upstairs bedrooms have their own sinks in them. There is a full bath upstairs, a separate bath tub room and 2 rooms with toilets only that used to be telephone booths! This cottage was built in 1878 and is an historic site. It is the largest cottage in Bay View and was the first to be built originally as a lodge, housing people while they built their cottages. The woodwork throughout the cottage is stunning. If you like an historic cottage you will love this one!

Bay View is noted for its beauty. The parks, the Hall Auditorium located up on the hill offer performances from music to films to plays to recitals. The Bay View Boys & Girls Club is the perfect way for your kids to engage with other kids during the day. And there are swimming, sailing and tennis lessons offered as well.

Mackinac Island is just a short trip away. There are many bike paths both on road and off. Ice cream, fudge, any treat you can imagine. The fun is endless in this summer paradise!

No pets, no smoking, no candles. 9 bedrooms, 2 full and 3 half baths, 1 tub room. Limited to 16 people.

$300 cleaning fee.

Location

Car: Recommended

Mackinac Island is only a one hour drive away to the ferry, casinos nearby. Petoskey State Park beach 15 minutes away. Bay View beach just steps away. Tennis courts steps away. Also go to the website www.bayviewassociation.org for events you may want to participate in. Our property is located in Bear Creek Township, not Petoskey. It is a summer resort area, only open from May through October.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1956

About the owner: I have lived in our family cottage every summer of my life until I was 19 years old. Since then I have spent time there every summer. It is my favorite place to be. I reserve time there each summer for my own personal use.

Why the Owner Chose Petoskey, MI, USA:
My grandmother bought this home for our family in 1956. We inherited it and have loved it all this time! It is one of the very first homes built in 1878, originally as a lodge to house others while they were building their own cottages. Hence the over 3500 square feet! Later on, when we owned it, it became a lodge for travelers, newlyweds, and college boys. We stopped renting it that way in 1972, and now rent it as a very large home for others to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I enjoy walking along the bluff above the beach every day and the amazing bike path that runs either way from our cottage to Charlevoix or Petoskey State Park and beyond. I love to sit on the rocks at the beach and listen to the waves while watching the most amazing sunsets. And I always go to Mackinac Island each year and ride bikes around the island, eat fudge and be a tourist!
