About Ann & Ralph Frost

Bought this cottage to enjoy with our children & grandkids and they love to go here. We recently (2011) completely lifted the cottage from the foundation and re-did the inside with new flooring. Great little get away for a small family or couple.

Ann & Ralph Frost purchased this cottage in 1994

Why Ann & Ralph Frost chose Shelbyville

Get away from it all in this cozy cottage with the Knotty Pine walls throughout the cottage and a nice screened/glass sliding window on the large porch with picnic table and seating area. Quiet and set back from the road. TV/cable but no internet to bother you, or phone. Who needs that in today's day and age! NEW GUN LAKE CASINO IS ABOUT 10 MINUTES FROM COTTAGE!

What makes this cottage unique

You will have a ball in the lake where a popular area to fish is 100 feet from out dock, the drop off. Fisherman always trolling that area. Water stays shallow for some time so small children can wade. Always have an adult present regardless of age! Often see Blue Heron in the area. Dock can easily dock your boat. Jet ski rentals available just doors away. Owner leaves 3 single and 1 double ocean kayak (double is only ocean kayak) with life preservers for renters at no cost, at renter's own risk. Outdoor 'fireplace' for campfires & S'mores and cuts down on mosquitoes! Lovely relaxing cottage.

The cottage was a great getaway for our family.

The interior was nice, clean, comfortable. A perfect place for our family to relax. The front porch was relaxing and comfortable to take my morning coffee.

Comfortable cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Owners made it easy to get in and are easy to work with. Cottage and the lake are very quiet and comfortable. Nice area. We were in the area for a wedding that was just down the street. Worked great as other friends could come spend time between functions and relax. It. has a well stocked kitchen. Has everything you need. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely rent it again.

We loved this cottage. It is so cute and the location is perfect. It was super clean. The owners are very accessible and nice. We especially enjoyed having our boat docked right out front and using the owners kayaks. Thank you for the great stay Ann!

Lovely little cottage with beautiful view of the lake.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice spot for a family vacation. There is a very nice grocery store just a little ways down the road. The front porch turned out to be our favorite area. The grandkids used the bicycles and kayaks and hiked the trails at the Yankee Springs recreational area. We loved it here.

Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a awesome time at the Cottage-Fabulous communicators and personal touch.

Quaint and delightful Cottage. We flew into Grand Rapids and drove to cottage late

at night-the light was left on for us with great directions given, we drove right to the correct address.

Since we flew we did not have linens and towels so Ann provided. Very clean and enjoyable. The porch with

picnic table was really nice-we ate there every meal. We were traveling with 4 of us-4 adults and she accommodated

our family. Nice lawn-we had a fire in the fire pit. And they have kayaks!! Our kids used them everyday.

Pizza place close by-bonus. She had coffee ready for us (nice touch). Previous renters had left few condiments-

very nice. From paper plates to furnished kitchen -we thought it great and will return. Thank-you!
