Wonderful Stay in Onekama
We had a girls weekend for Labor Day weekend 2017. There were 13 of us that stayed quite comfortably and had an absolutely wonderful time! I would definitely recommend to anyone and would certainly stay there again. Thank you for opening your home to us!
The cottage was nestled in the trees with a nice quick walk to the Lake Michigan beach.
The kids and us loved the beach and walking to the small dune. The house had all the necessary supplies, appliances and the kids loved the loft beds. Hard to have more than 2 families due to private rooms for adults. Everyone was friendly and it was a charming small town. We went to the sleeping bear dunes, kayaked in Platte river and loon lake, biked and enjoyed campfire at night on the beach. Our kids can't wait to go back! Thanks for sharing your place with us.
Wonderful family vacation spot. Onekama is a hidden gem.
The house is conveniently located and within walking distance of Portage Point Inn, Portage Lake and Lake Michigan. The house is well stocked with kitchen utensils and space large enough for the amount of beds including a dining room table that easily seats 10. You are in a woody area, so bug spray is helpful for mosquitoes. Quiet area which is nice.
Great Place to Relax
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Short walk to nice Lake Michigan Beach. Beach was very nice. Cottage was very well equipped for our week. Surrounded by woods and private. Owner was easy to work with in terms of booking. It was wonderful that we were able to include our dog for the week as well. Also a nice easy walk to Portage Point Inn for an ice cream in the evening.

A wonderful long weekend retreat
Spacious, comfortable family home in a scenic, quiet neighborhood within an easy 5 min walk to a small,but pleasant Lake Michigan beach. A perfect getaway for a long weekend with our extended family of 9. Had fun exploring nearby towns and climbing the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Thanks to the Mulligan family for their willingness to share their beautiful family home.
