Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We own two cottages at Vineyard Lake, and have enjoyed the lake for many years. Our two grown children have many fond family memories at the lake. We call it our "little piece of heaven"!

Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn, MI, USA:
The cottage has been a convenient & relaxing family retreat. The lake is shallow & clean - perfect for all ages! It's a great place for swimming and plenty of quality family time!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Other than just relaxing at the lake, one of the things we enjoy most are the beautiful sunsets and relaxing by the fire at night. Roasting marshmallows & making smores have become a tradition. Children love climbing the ladder up to to the sleeping loft. It's a great area where they can watch movies and play cards or board games - like their own "clubhouse"! Overall this is a fun family get-away!
