Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)
We have enjoyed 'Pure Michigan' all our lives. Living and working in northwest Detroit suburbs we enjoy our Tawas getaway escapes. Not too far (about 3 hours) we can quickly get into our rest and relaxation mode. As always the lake levels change. At times there is quite a bit of beach, and at other times the water is up to the breakwall.
Bob purchased this Cottage in 1955
Why Bob chose Tawas City
Family owned since 1955, four generations have been able to spend many summers and created great memories. Many updates have been added through the years with careful preservation of the past as well.
What makes this Cottage unique
A quiet 'piece of heaven' off the main highway. We can enjoy, biking, swimming, boating without ever leaving the place. If we want to go for ice cream, dinner, art fairs, farmers market, antiquing, golfing, shopping, they are all close.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
not a good experience / stay
the mbr bed was sufficient for sleep, but other needed beds left unused. Owner wants to keep entire deposit : 1. false kitchen drawer front came off after previous repair 2. plaque fell off wall 3. owner couldn't initially locate keys and had no spare - billed his trip to deliver 2nd set to deposit.
We had a great time. Comfortable, clean and quiet.
Nice cozy cottage. Exactly what I expected from the pictures.
Basic little cottage on Saginaw bay. Clean, all appliances worked, had everything we needed for dishes and utensils. Only thing I would recommend is that if you plan on going in water bring some water shoes, it is rocky.
This was exactly what we wanted. We all enjoyed the quirkiness and relaxed attitude of this cabin. Everything was provided, and we really appreciated the washer and dryer. There was a little problem with the wiring: we couldn'the run the microwave and coffee pot at the same time, or the dryer and microwave at the same time, but, we got used to it. It was very quiet, and the neighbors were very nice. It could have been a touch cleaner.
Could be so much more
Awesome location and so much potential. If you need a place to stay it's fine, but it's cluttered and not very clean. I hate to leave a negative review because the owner is a nice and accommodating man but there were spider webs everywhere when we got there, the tv doesn't really work and the place looks like it wasn't vacuumed in a long time. It could be an awesome place with some de-cluttering and some cleaning.
It was cozy and very relaxing. I enjoyed my stay very much!
Even though this area is laid back and not as congested as the western part of the state, there is always something to do. You can sample Michigan wines at the Uncapped & Unscrewed charity event, walk the State Dock and look at boats from all over the country, or shop some of the specialty shops in downtown E. Tawas. There is a bike path that goes along US 23 from the cottage to E. Tawas (approx. 5mi).
