Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for our 10th anniversary and it was everything we had hoped for and more! Lake Michigan was a very short walk and the views of the sunset from the swing were breathtaking! The cottage was well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes and condiments. Dennis, Jill and Alan were all very helpful. Jill and Alan gave us wonderful suggestions of things to do and places to see! We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: So glad you liked it. You were our first renters of the season (May 27) and every week is a little different. Early June and late Sept. are often best for nature lovers as it is more peaceful and we also have more availability then. Jill said you left the cottage spotless. We'd love to have you back for many more anniversaries in the woods by the Lake. Dennis

An excellent and peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Loved your cozy cottage in the woods! What a unique experience, to enjoy both a beautiful wooded area and a very private sunny beach, just steps away! Lake Michigan is truly breathtaking. The owner was very accommodating and accessible. It was a very personable experience, with much care taken by this family to ensure a pleasant stay. Adding starter toiletries and condiments was a really nice addition. We hope to return to this special cottage often. Thank you!

The cottage was represented well in the pictures provided. Well supplied with basic essentials.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage and look forward to returning. The main living area Is spacious and open. It was cozy as well as functional. The kitchen was well stocked and had plenty of pots/pans and utensils. Having a washer and dryer was quite a benefit. The cottage was close to the road and surrounded by woods with only a short walk to the beach access. We used the gas grill and sat out on the shaded deck frequently. There are plenty of hills and back roads for shaded walks. The

beach access was centrally located between Frankfort and Point Betsie for long beach walks.
