Property description

Located on the northwest corner of Portage Lake, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is perfect for some much needed R & R, family time, lake time or your 'own place' while visiting family in the area. With a nearby public boat launch, you are able to bring watercraft and dock on the lake in front of the cottage. A nearby marina offers pontoon and boat rentals as well. Portage is a great lake to boat, sail, kayak, water ski, jet ski or fish! This cottage has a well-equipped kitchen, towels and sheets, television, internet and screened-in porch area. Washing machine and dryer equipped. A gas grill is just outside the lakeside door. Nearby are many recreation activities, other than the lake, including horseback riding, golf, putt-putt, state parks, metro parks and bike riding.

Located on a chain of 7 lakes, Portage is the largest of the lakes. All connected, these lakes make for some great boating and swimming. Also close to Pinckney State Recreation Area and Hudson Mills Metro Park. Close by is Lakelands Trail State Park for bicycling. Nearby Pinckney is a small village town. Other towns within 15 minutes are Brighton, Dexter, Chelsea and Hell. We are 30 minutes north of Ann Arbor, home of one of the best Art Festivals in the midwest, the University of Michigan, excellent restaurants, museums and an arboretum. The Purple Rose Theater is in Chelsea, along with many shops and restaurants. Brighton is a downtown destination with many restaurants, summer Sunday evening concerts at the Millpond and a cinema complex. One mile away is Whispering Pines Golf Club. Howell, with its late June Hot Air Balloon Festival and August Melon Festival, is also a destination.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Have lived in Michigan entire life and enjoy and appreciate all the beautiful lakes, Great and inland.

Why the Owner Chose Pinckney, MI, USA:
This cottage was remodeled in 2001, but is constantly being maintained with painting, carpeting, lighting etc. We love the opportunities this cottage offers being on a quiet end of a large lake and part of a chain of lakes. It has been a haven for many who have stayed here.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Opposite end of the lake from the boat launch. Near no-wake-zone and is very quiet and tame.
