Loved our trip to Michigan! The cottage was beautiful. I have never rented a cottage before, so I was a little worried about it not being clean. This place was spotless! The sheets were folded up in the closets perfectly. I went to put them on the beds and you could tell that they had just been washed. That made me feel very comfortable about staying there. The kids were able to swim everyday. They loved the diving deck. And we were able to sit in the yard and relax while they would swim. We rented a boat and were able to dock it there. Great vacation! This is the only place that we willl stay when we come to magician lake.

This place was perfect for our family of 7. The house was very clean with everything you would need. My kids kept busy swimming, fishing and using row boat. Would definitely rent again. We had a blast!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful weeks vacation. The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed. The enclosed porch is huge and was great for games and morning coffee. Another plus is that we rented a boat from the marina and were able to tie up right at their pier. I would definitely recommend this cottage.

Relaxing & Beautiful!

Wonderful place to stay on Magician Lake! The owners are friendly & attentive, and they also keep this gem immaculate. It's simply adorable, chic & comfortable. Everything you need is there and it's also an easy drive to town and other attractions. Make sure you take a look at Debbie's homemade souvenir Magician Lake shirts as well. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and look forward to visiting it again. We miss it already!
