If you're looking for a private, secluded retreat with beautiful sunset views on a quiet lake, we have just the place for you! Our summer cottage and property has been in our family for three generations. You're less than 90 minutes away from beautiful destinations such as Mackinac Island, Traverse City, wine country, Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, and Hartwick Pines State Park. Or, just stay around our cabin to read, sunbathe, walk, fish, or swim. TV access includes ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS. No Internet and little cell phone access can be a blessing! Nearby towns for dining, shopping and entertainment include Lewiston and Gaylord. Sorry, no hunters.

About Dean Long
My parents first purchased this property from a family member in 1979. For many years, it was their retirement destination throughout the summer. With their passing, my sister and I have owned this property and cabin for the past 10 years. With our year-around homes some distance away, we don't have the opportunity to vacation here as much as we'd like to. However, many of our extended family members live close by to the cabin.

What makes this Cottage unique
I can honestly, objectively state that we own THE premier property on Douglas Lake! The sunsets are gorgeous! During a recent stay, we were visited by a family of three loons, along with a heron along the water's edge.

Wonderful accommodation! All the comforts of home with picturesque surroundings. Beautiful lake with plenty of great fishing (bass, perch, blue gill) super sunsets and even the Northern Lights visible just north of nearby M32. Nearby Lewiston or a quick trip to the Johannesburg general store were convenient. Plenty of hiking trails in the Mackinac state forest just to the south. Hated to leave, but will return in the future.
Thanks, Mark, for your wonderful review! Please do come back next year!
A great break from reality!

Thank you so much, Becky! Please do come back next year!
The Definition of an Up North Michigan Cottage
We had such a wonderful, relaxing time! Everything was exactly as described and the whole place was so CLEAN. Perfect size for 4 adults with 2beds/2baths. Sand flies can be a bit pesky, but didn't bother us much after using some bug repellent (there was already a bottle there in case we ran out too!). In fact, the whole place was stocked with almost everything you would need. Would book this place again in a heartbeat. The whole process was so easy and the owner quickly responded to any question I had. Thanks for sharing your space with us, it really is a gem.
Thank you for your wonderful review! I'm so glad to read of your great experience. Please come back and stay next summer! We'd love to have you again!
Peaceful and Quite
Spent a long weekend and was very quite, weather was great and just sat back and enjoyed the sunshine and peacefulness of the property, would definitely come back again
Thank you, Lorren, for your review! Please do come back!
This cottage is a perfect getaway for anyone that is looking to relax and get some good fishing and swimming in. Lake is quiet and so refreshing. Cottage was clean and well kept. We will definitely plan to visit again when in the area.
Thank you for your kind words! I'm glad to know that you enjoyed our lake cottage in the same manner that my family has for many years. Please do stay with us again!
Cabin was clean and well stocked. Granddaughters had fun swimming and the adults had fun trying to catch that big bass. Nighttime fires with s’mores topped off a busy day. Take your food, clothes and fishing poles only, I way over packed. This place lacks nothing, although an umbrella for the deck table would be nice but I took one with me for protection from afternoon sun. Did not miss the internet. Will go again next year.
Thank you so much for your positive comments! It seems that you enjoyed our lake cottage in the same manner that my family has for so many years. Please do come back next summer!
