About Nick Kussy

We bought the house in April of 1990. My wife and I have enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness the Sauble River. Nothing can compare to the tranquil sound of a flowing river over the rocks and the sun reflecting off the moving water.

Why Nick Kussy chose Branch

I have been enjoying the northwestern Michigan area since the early 1970's. Over the years my family ( children and grandchildren) have enjoyed the beauty and recreational fun the area has to offer.

What makes this house unique

The view of the river from the sun-room or a camp fire down by the rivers edge is difficult to beat.

A great place for some peace and quiet on the river

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for my wife and I to use as home base for the weekend. Peace and quiet, right on the Sauble River. Located between the Pere Marquette and Little Manistee gave us plenty of steelhead fishing options.

Great House on the river

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for the weekend and it was perfect. Only needed to bring towels and groceries. Very quiet and relaxing. River is awesome. Nick was great with all my questions. We hope to come back in the fall!

It was Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your beautiful corner of the world with us. It was perfectly located for access to many rivers, Ludington, and Manistee. We enjoyed kayaking, swimming, fishing, and sightseeing. The house itself had everything we could possibly need.

Beautiful location on the Sauble River

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Kussy Cottage. When we arrived, the cottage was very clean and had all the amenities of home. The river running through the back yard was awesome and it made a great place to enjoy a bonfire. A few mosquitos, but after all, this is Michigan! Nick checked on us when we arrived to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction. Lots of things to do and places to go in the area. Best of all, we were able to bring our dog, Lucy, with us! We would highly recommend this cottage to others!
