Property description

Welcome! This comfortable, roomy, RiverCottage allows you to do as much or as little as you desire. The 10 secluded acres provides an abundance of wildlife to observe or explore. Bring a good book to curl up with in a quiet nook. Enough rest? Pick-up a canoe or kayak from Shel-Haven (10 min walk). Spend the day floating on the beautiful Manistee River.
If you fly-fish you have come to the right place. Excellent quality waters makes a large trout possible. Perhaps the family does not share the same passion for flyfishing, they can enjoy the cottage or go shopping in the hustle and bustle of Traverse City or Gaylord to return to the peace and quite of the river.
The wrap around decking provides great views of the woods or the river. Sit back and enjoy the scenery. If its a family of fox frolicking in the woods or a flyfisher-"person" casting to a rising trout, your cares will seem to melt away, take a deep breath RELAX and ENJOY!!
If you enjoy privacy, solitude and off the beaten path, the River Cottage is for you!

Other Amenities

  • Although nestled in the woods on the rivers edge, the River Cottage would look right at home if located on the New England Coast. Its decor speaks to the notty pine of Northern Michigan but emulates the cedar shake architecture of the east coast. It has just enough rustic feel but also so cozy with a crackling fire. Almost 3000 square feet allows you the option of seeking some quiet privacy or family fun around the foosball table! Very unique to its location. This is a great location for FLYFISHERMEN as we are located on the quality waters of the Manitsee River, GOLFERS paradise, 20 minutes from Soaring Eagle Casino, and a SCRAPBOOKERS weekend getaway. ...moreless

About the owner: The Rivercottage began as a family getaway to flyfish, golf and just relax on the beautiful Manistee river. As families grow and change, it has turned into an excellent rental property so many families can create lasting memories at the Rivercottage.
