About michele and tony malinowski

My husband has always wanted a cottage. When he found this place he knew we had to have it. We call it his fourth child. I am a teacher and finally got up to see it in the summer and fell in love. It is so relaxing!! It's perfect for walking, reading, and getting away from it all.

Why michele and tony malinowski chose Lewiston

Lewistion is two hours and forty minutes from Oakland County. As soon as we start to get antsy we are there!! Although it is a quiet and relaxing place, it is still only an hour from Traverse City and Mackinaw City. It is 40 minutes from Boyne Mountain and only a few minutes from Garland and Tree Tops. We love to relax but when we want to do something it is just a stones throw away.

What makes this cottage unique

This lakefront property is a quiet haven. If you like to walk, you can get to town for a Talley burger at the local resturant. The Lewistion Lodge is right on the water a boat ride or short drive away. If it rains you can go bowling to keep moving. Just a few minutes away is Tree Tops for skiing and sledding. Garland has great golf and cross country skiing. You can also get to Gaylord in 30 minutes to shop or catch a movie. If you want to venture out to see Michigan you are only an hour from Traverse City, Mackinaw City, and the Sand Dunes.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. We have been to several locations in Northern Michigan and this was our favorite spot. The kids loved the hammock, paddle boat, and water. The cottage was beautiful and well stocked. Great places to eat nearby. The owners were super helpful in answering our questions.

Lewiston, East Twin Lake

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful, charming cottage with all the amenities you need. We were looking for family relaxation, peaceful vacation spot and we found it here with this cottage on East Twin Lake. Beautiful setting and views of the lake from the very comfortable large deck and lawn with plenty of seating to entertain. Weather its napping in the hammock or reading on the deck we enjoy all this cottage had to offer, including daily Kayaking around the lake and bonding with nature. Although immediately in front of this cottage was not ideal swimming we were able to kayak to the public beach or island for sandy areas. We can not wait to return once again. Thank you Malinowski Family for sharing your little piece of heaven.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful, well kept, clean cottage. My wife, myself,son and mother and father in law had a great time. The views were spectacular. stores and restaraunts are less than a five minute drive, and many ameneties to use on the property. We rented a pontoon from the local marina and it worked out great! Just a good relaxing weekend in a beautiful place. Our only downfall were there were a few bees that got in the front window. Did not effect our stay in the least bit. Will be going back for sure!

Peaceful vacation home

  • 4 of 5

If you like getting up in the morning and sitting out on the deck with a cup of coffee, listening to the loons and watching the ducks swimming and the sun shimmering on the water then this place is for you. The fire pit is in the ideal spot next to the water. Even though the temperature got up into the 90's the house stayed cool because of all the shade trees. I have to make a special kudo to the updated bathroom! Wouldn't hesitate to rent again. Thanks!
