Home is a beautifully cared for historical home located in Onekama Village. Restaurants shops and portage lake park and beach are within walking distance. Beautiful Public Lake Michigan access 5 minute drive away. Casino 10 minutes away, meijer's only 15. Not Tom mention shirt travel times to Manistee, Arcadia, Frankfort, Beulah, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Glen Arbor. House was perfect for our family with space for everyone to be themselves. Very responsive owners. Hope to return again!

Marvelous property

  • 5 of 5

Location was excellent. Close to lake. Great living room, bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchen. Old house with a brand new interior. Best of both worlds. Owner was accommodating and easy to contact. Would happily recommend to friends.

relaxing autumn weekend by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Our second time staying in this home. What a great location within easy walking distance to downtown Onekama (and, luckily we got there just for the last day of the season for Papa J's ice cream). The drive up M22 was beautiful at this time of the year and the hikes through the dunes were so relaxing. Honeycrisp apples by the bushel available everywhere at this time of year. And, at the end of the day, returning to the spacious and comfortable home makes for a very enjoyable experience.

Relaxing week in a comfy cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation goal was a relaxing week in a comfortable space and the cottage fulfilled our goal. The cleanliness and roominess was a welcome change to our recent rental experiences. My husband appreciated the easy access to Portage Lake for fishing. I appreciated the comfortable space to relax. The sitting/reading room with views of busy bird feeders was an enjoyable bonus. The owner Rob was very prompt in answering any questions we had. Very much enjoyed the cottage.

Beautiful cottage in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was ideal for our family of six adults and one infant. With three bedrooms and 2.5 baths our weeklong stay was very comfortable and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Equipped with a large flat screen TV in the living room and fast (10 mbps) internet we had all the comforts of home. The kitchen was adequately equipped (we cooked most of our meals rather than frequenting the Onekama restaurants) and the house was beautifully decorated. We were able to walk to the downtown area and especially enjoyed the public park and beach on Portage Lake. The washing machine is on it's last legs but Rob told us that he is replacing it in the near future. We hope to stay here again the next time we visit the Onekama area!

Great family vacation week

  • 5 of 5

We were positively impressed with this rental unit. We found it more spacious and comfortable than even the pictures show! Our family enjoyed a great week in Onekama and sightseeing around the area (Sleeping Bear Dunes, Cherry Bowl Drive In, Manistee area). This house was a pleasant place to spend our down time together--and the A/C made it comfortable for sleeping during a hot week. Thank you to Rob for your attentiveness to our needs and questions throughout the week.
