About Theresa Emmerling

18 years ago we bought our cottage on Mill Lake to have a quiet place to go and get away from the busy every day routines. We also wanted our children to have a place to take their friends and enjoy the great outdoors. Our time was split between relaxing and having fun. Our summer weekends were consumed with tubing, fishing, swimming, attending the Hot Air Balloon Festivals, Worlds Largest Breakfast Table along with lots of local attractions. Winter weekends were spent ice fishing, ice skating, sledding and indoor puzzles and games. Thru the years, our family has built many memories on this lake and in town at festivals. In 2012 we purchased and rebuilt the house next to ours. Now our friends and family can also enjoy the area but yet have a private place to stay.

Theresa Emmerling purchased this house in 2012

Why Theresa Emmerling chose Southwest

Great location just off the main road with only a 15 minute drive into Battle Creek or Hastings for unlimited activities, shopping and festivals. It is also centrally located between Detroit and Chicago. The lake itself is large enough to have fun on but yet small enough to not be busy or overcrowded.

What makes this house unique

Being a small, private lake offers a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Located on the east side of the lake offers longer evenings and views of the sunset. The dead end road keeps the traffic to a minimal. All sports lake offers endless water activities.

Immaculate, well designed and appointed lake cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find this immaculate, well designed and appointed lake cottage just a few hours from our front door. The cottage has everything you could possibly want or need and more. It is located in a peaceful, serene setting. We were delighted by the twice daily visit of the swan family. With the front of the cottage mostly glass windows, it feels like the lake is at your front door. Just a few steps off the spacious patio, the paddle boat is tied up to the dock ready to take you around the calm waters of the lake. This is the perfect spot to relax and leave all your worries behind. We will definitely book this cottage again when our schedule allows.

Beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find the cottage clean and fresh with all the item necessary for a great stay. The fishing was good and we didn't need to go far from the cottage to find them. We visited Moo-ville which I would recommend if you are an ice cream lover. We would definitely return, we had a great time.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is so clean and updated. It is cute and homey. Richard and Theresa have poured there hearts into preparing a pleasant and memorable experience! I loved the provided paddle boat and row boat. There were plenty of brochures and directions for things to do. We were spoiled! We cooked on the gas grill and sat by several fires. The fire wood was provided! We will be back!

Lovely, quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our visit to Theresa's wonderful little gem of a cottage. It was immaculately clean, well stocked with what we needed for cooking, and had a beautiful view of the lake. We would definitely return for another visit.

Awesome to the Max!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is spotlessly clean and bright, our every need was met, quiet, and it is beautifully appointed, We so enjoyed the beach, paddle boat, and the fact that it is a pet-friendly venue. If the drive from VA to MI wasn't so difficult for us, we'd try to come back to see the venue dressed in fall colors!
