About Sara Fischer
My sister and I inherited Haloma after having spent a lifetime of summers here. We grew up in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, 90 miles from our cottage. My sister lives three miles from the cottage, having met her husband as a teenager at the lake. I live in the Detroit area with my son and husband.
Sara Fischer purchased this Cottage in 1940
Why Sara Fischer chose Manitou Beach-Devils Lake
Haloma was built in 1940 by our grandfather. It has been a beloved family gathering place for our family for over 70 years. My sister and I are now the proud owners of this precious gem that is being offered to rent for the first time. We spent our childhood summers living at Haloma, and we now share it with our families and continue to build memories, hopefully for generations to come. It is our desire to share our beloved home with renters who will appreciate a classic cottage, updated and maintained, yet preserving the charm of a true vintage cottage. The Irish Hills area of Michigan is absolutely beautiful. We love spending time here with our families. There is truly nothing like spending time at a lake house.
What makes this Cottage unique
Haloma boasts views of Devil's Lake from every window in the cottage. Spending time at a lakefront retreat with your family has been a lifelong joy for us. Whether sitting on the enclosed porch, the patio, the dock or on the shoreline, if you're looking for a relaxing, peaceful cottage offering the feeling of days gone by, you've found it.

Awesome cottage, location for family time
Haloma is a wonderful, well equipped cottage and lake location. And a "cottage" it is with all the artifacts and heirlooms throughout, telling the history of the cottage. The cottage and grounds are amble for family and friend time. You literally only need your favorite beach towel and swimsuit everything else is already there. Large deck at the end of the dock was great for just hanging out. Swim area is great for little ones (shallow) or just rafting, which we did a lot of.Had a wonderful relaxing time, looking forward to booking for next summer. Rented a pontoon from Rob's Rentals, great time cruising the lake and our kids enjoyed time at the sand bar.
Thank you Carol! It was a pleasure to have you stay at Haloma. Best regards - Sara and Leslie
An old college friend of mine was getting married at the Yacht Club on Devil's Lake, so I rented this beautiful cottage/house for the long weekend for myself and a few of our other friends who were attending the wedding. The house was perfect. Very clean and in great shape, but with a lot of old family charm. It had everything we could possibly need, plenty of beds and outdoor seating, fully stocked kitchen, clean sheets, towels, and blankets, etc. The yard and the view of the lake are beautiful. It was nice to just wake up and walk right out to the lake. We spent a lot of time sitting on the dock. There was a fire pit on the edge of the lake, where we sat at night time in front of the fire. There is a lot of boating on the lake during the day, but in the evenings, it was as peaceful as could be. And the communication with the owners was excellent as well---quick responses, gave me all the information I needed, and were very accommodating. Thanks Sara and Leslie!
I would rent this house again without reservation!

Great family time
We loved our stay - it was just too short. We all were very comfortable and enjoyed seeing all the family history and artwork on display in the cottage. Our grandchildren enjoyed swimming / splashing by the dock.
Thank you so much Diane. It was a pleasure to have you stay at Haloma. We'd love to have you back any time! Sara
