It is a quiet, serene setting surrounded by mature pines & hardwoods. It is about an hour west of St. Ignace off US 2 and has a living/dining room, kitchen, and in-door plumbing facilities (there is also an outhouse for the rustic feel, if you prefer!). There are two, queen size fold out couches in the living room and a rollout bed stored in one of the bedrooms. There is an electric stove with oven, refrigerator, “Mr. Coffee” coffee maker, toaster, microwave oven, blender, pots, pans, plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, and cooking utensils. So all you need is your linens & groceries. There is a 14-foot aluminum rowboat with two adult & two children’s life jackets, oars and an anchor.

firewood. Please DO NOT cut any of the trees.
Drinking water. There is a deep well that was installed in 1998 and a Brita water filter pitcher is also available.

Shopping: Newberry: Two supermarkets, Mac’s at the top of the hill on M123, and Rahilly’s IGA downtown near the RR crossing.

Milakokia Lk Road; BP gas Station, US 2 and M 77, six miles west of E. Milakokia Lk Road.


- Please do not bring any ORV’s as this is a quiet lake & we don’t want to
disturb the neighbors.

- Pets need to be cleaned up after, all waste from animals cleaned up from yard - PLEASE BE VERY DILIGENT IN THIS. Please do not allow them to dig and they need to be kept off the furniture, in consideration of other guests with allergies.

When you leave, please clean the floors, kitchen & bath for the next group, this allows us to keep the rent low by not having to hire someone to clean. Please make sure the yard is clean and you haven’t forgotten any items you brought with you.
Please make absolutely sure you clean out the refrigerator. This includes all condiments and leftovers. There is no trash pick-up so you will need to take it all with you. For three dollars and fifty cents per bag the Sunoco gas station in Engadine (M117, one mile north of US 2) will let you use their dumpster. Please be sure that all lights and fans are off and lock both front and back doors. Thank you.

Please do not leave the key at the cottage. Please bring it home with you to return
it to Tim or Carrie via mail or make other arrangements. You may also have the option to leave it with John and Julie. Thank you.

Please leave the cottage as nice or nicer for the next family. This helps us in keeping the cost low for you.

Also, starting in 2016, VRBO has started charging travelers a booking fee. Please be aware that none of this fee goes to property owners.

From VRBO's Help page:

VRBO, part of the HomeAway Family, has started charging a service fee to Travelers. The service fee is a fee charged to the traveler and is calculated on a sliding scale of 4% to 10% of the total booking. The service fee helps cover the cost of running the HomeAway websites, including features such as 24/7 customer support and marketing efforts to ensure a quality experience on our sites for both travelers and owners. HomeAway is responsible for the service fee funds and the associated credit card processing fee; owners will not receive the service fee funds in their account.

Owner's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Don't forget your vacation protection! Get protected now

Adding our Vacation Protection services can make sure your getaway goes smoothly, no matter what. We offer Cancellation Protection and Damage Protection so you can truly relax.
