All rentals are available for your use for your entire stay – we do not offer 'daily' rates.
Dry bundled firewood is available for purchase. Please do not take wood from our personal log pile.
Our cleaning team spends a total of 5-6 hours thoroughly cleaning La Bella Vie Cottage to prepare for your arrival.
Be aware, when some rental owners say, "Please leave the cottage as you found it," it may mean, they do NOT clean between guests, instead they trust the previous guest to leave the home clean. Guests have shared horror stories of arriving at some cottages, only to spend hours cleaning before starting their vacation. This will Never happen at La Bella Vie Cottage!
**Limited mobility accessible. Our cottage has no stairs, and is accessible for those with limited mobility. The decks overlooking Lake Michigan, at both accesses, are accessible by wheelchair.

Live a Beautiful Life!
