The design is “cottage style” with white painted wood walls and ceiling that contrast with the hardwood floors, cherry cabinetry and granite countertops. Eclectic accessories make this the most unique cottage in the area. Enjoy the sun and watch the freighters float by from the deck or covered porch. For a special stay, “Moonlight” is a separate one bedroom cedar cabin with half bath a few steps from the cottage and right on the beach. Both cottages are included in the rental.

PLEASE NOTE: Limit 6 guests. Weekly rentals only - Saturday to Saturday.

About James Walker

Born and grew up in this neighborhood, this is now our family's summer get away when we can travel here. When we can't we share it with others as a rental.

James Walker purchased this cottage in 1984

Why James Walker chose Saint Ignace

This property has been in my family for decades and benefited from a complete re-build 10 years ago. It continues to be a favorite of ours and our many guests offering private lakefront and close to town and attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

Relax to the waves of Lake Michigan and watch the freighters float by. Watch the sunset over St. Helene Island. Day trips abound in the area for every interest, including nearby Mackinac Island.

Cute cottage by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Very cute cottage style home. Very close to the water. Garage was not included. The only drawback to this home was one small shower. No bath on bedroom level in main house. The cabin had a half bath. We enjoyed our stay here and the kitchen was adequately supplied as was the rest of the property. Very convenient to all the activities in the St. Ignace area. Close to shops and food although not walking distance. Owner left a list of info for the area that was very helpful. Bedding was very comfortable. Would defiantly recommend this property and use again.
