Unplug in privacy, space and nature in our family cottage on 2 lakes.
Walk 40 acres of paths through unshared forest and meadow.
We are 20 minutes from Greenville, 45 minutes from Grand Rapids, 2.5 hours from metro Detroit and 3.5 hours from Chicago. Close to everything yet removed from everything.
The cottage is modest and cozy. Entering through the 3 season room, the main room has a kitchen, dining and living area all with views of the lake, comfy seating and a wood stove. There are 4 bedrooms. The one off the living room has a view of the lake, 2 twin beds and a full bathroom. The other 3 bedrooms, one with a queen and two with full beds are off a hall from the kitchen as well as the second full bath. There is a large deck, washer and dryer, fire pit and swings.
Included is the use of a spacious, new floating dock, a platform raft for swimming in water 30 ft deep, a canoe, paddle boat, row boat and 8 life jackets. Due to the size of the lake state law mandates that no motors are allowed. The beach is grass and moss with sand at the water's edge and shallows where little ones love to jump from the dock. About 8 feet out the lake has a softer bottom due to the leaves from many trees. Teens and adults tend to swim to the raft in deeper water. The lawn is of good size and home to guests playing many different lawn games. There is a Weber charcoal grill and a gas grill. The kitchen is well equipped with a gas range, microwave, toaster, coffee/cappuccino maker and vases for wildflowers. There is a vintage radio, TV/DVD player for movies, dart board and loads of games and books. We can not offer internet service but reception is excellent for AT&T and Verizon, perfect for an iPad.
The cottage is open for reservations Memorial Day weekend through November 4th. Weather providing we sometimes remain open through Thanksgiving.
Only people that respect nature need inquire. Children are encouraged and MUST be supervised. Sorry although our parcel is large we do not have the infrastructure to host large gatherings. We greatly value our relationships with our neighbors therefore unruly and excessively loud guests might warrant a visit from the sheriff. Respectful guests are always invited back with perks.
NO pets, HUNTING, FIREARMS, EXPLOSIVES or FIREWORKS.
