This cottage is one of our most popular. It has a screened porch on the front and a large living area. It has two bedrooms and one bath. There is also a back door that goes directly into one of the bedrooms. There is a large common area right outside the door with large wood swings, grills, picnic tables and a fire pit. There is a shared deck that overlooks the beach. There is also a fire pit on the beach. It affords fabulous views of over-water sunsets and the beach is a perfect place to star-gaze!

Clean and good location
Nice place right near the nature center and two state parks and a small beach park one house away -great location and wonderful for kids :)
Very clean, everything inside and out was well maintained
My husband and myself, with our 5 children stayed in cabin 5. We had a great time, the grounds and beach were wonderful. The cabin was sufficient for all of us to sleep and eat in comfortably. We had a wonderful time at Sunset Beach while there and the location is perfectly located between Caseville and Port Austin...would recommend Sunset Beach to anyone
Wonderful place to stay
My family had a great time here. Cottage was clean and had a great beach and views of the sunset.
Property and grounds were great and the beach was amazing. Couldn't ask for more!
We stayed in Cabin #5 with 4 adults. 2 toddlers, and two infants. The owners are very helpful and responsive. The cabin was exactly what we needed for the week. The living/dining/kitchen area was spacious along with a large bathroom. The bedrooms were on the smaller side but didn't matter to us as they are only for sleeping!! Our favorite part was the sun porch. When We weren't on the beach we spent most of time on the porch. The views and the beach were great. We will be coming back for sure.
Thank you so much!
Loved the water view
I enjoyed my stay in Cabin 5. If I wasn't on the beach, the screened-in porch was my favorite place to sit and relax and enjoy the water view. It was a chilly week so it was nice to be able to close the windows on the porch. We also had some beautiful sunsets which we watched from the upper viewing deck. If we had questions or needed something, Cheri or Mary were around almost every day. The beds were comfortable and the cabin was clean.
We just randomly picked this place, and we're very glad we did.
We were a little worried we would be cramped, but not so as we slept 4 adults and 2 kids in the bedrooms, and 3 more kids on the hideabed. The location was great. Just walking up to the cottage, we saw how close we were to the water and started to think about booking again for next year.
