Come and enjoy this peaceful retreat on the beautiful Betsie River. This enchanting cottage in an idyllic wooded setting with an artesian fed stream flowing into the Betsie River... offers you every comfort of home while you are building memories with your family that will last for years to come. The only thing you will find lacking is time to take it all in. Two bdrms, one bath, gas grill, campfire area, extra sleeping accommodations. Direct frontage on the Betsie River. Dogs welcome. Just 2 miles to Crystal Mountain.
This cozy cottage on the Betsie River is just three miles from Crystal Mountain offers an excellent family vacation retreat or romantic get-away. Fish for the plentiful Steel head, Brown, or Rainbow Trout. Hunt for the abundant gourmet morel mushrooms, or simply enjoy the sight, sounds and smells of Northern Michigan emerging into spring. Summer sunshine and water invite swimming, water-sports, or just sunbathing. Take a canoe, kayak, or tubing trip through miles of peaceful wilderness. Walk to the top of the sand dunes at the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park, just a short drive from your door.
Fall is the season to fish for the great Coho or King Salmon. Thousands are taken each year from the Betsie River and Betsie Bay. Hunting is popular for deer, small game, turkey, and waterfowl. Best of all, Indian Summer offers an array of gorgeous colors, so bring your camera for some breathtaking pictures. Winter, cross country ski from your front door through acres of beautiful Michigan wilderness. Downhill ski at Crystal Mountain only a few minutes away.
