Cottage 4 is our closest one to the lake. It has a small screen porch and a large kitchen and living space. It has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has a full and a twin bed. It has a large picture window that looks directly on the water and is just steps away from the beach. There is a large common grounds area with picnic tables, grills, large swings, fire pit and shared deck over the beach. The beach has a volleyball net and another fire pit. The beach is wonderful for children. There is a sandbar that stretches out several hundred feet so they can easily play in the water without a big drop off. The beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, kayaking and long walks with your toes in the sand. At night it affords a spectacular view of the over-water sunset and stargazing.

Beautiful location on the sandy shores of Lake Huron
Stayed in Cottage #4. Cottage was clean and had great view of the lake. The kitchen was well equipped and the host was extremely helpful and friendly. If staying during the off-season be ready to let the water run for a bit to remove the Well odour, most prevalent in the hot water.
Will definitely go again.
Thank you so much!
Awesome Cottages to stay at
Had a wonderful weekend at Sunset Beach Cottages. The cottages and grounds are awesome and the view is breathtaking. We will definitely be back next year!!!
Thank you so much!
The area was beautiful! The cottage could use a little update but was sufficient for our needs. It was a little musty smelling and the smell of mold was strong in the dresser drawers(I’m one of those people who like to unpack and not live out of a suitcase). The family was quick to respond to any problems that happened and delightful to deal with.
Thank you! And thank you for bringing that to our attention! We will definitely work on that issue! We are always happy to respond to any issues immediately!
Great place to visit
We have a wonderful time each time we visit. The beach is great. We love the community fire pit. Often times people from different cottages come together over the fire in the evenings. We get to meet our fellow vacationers, share stories and sometimes smores. The grounds are very well taken care of. We look forward to our return visit next year.
Weather did not cooperate could have been a little warmer but that has nothing to do with the cottage had a great time enjoyed our stay got a lot arrest
Great location and clean!
My sister and I stayed here for the weekend and loved this cute, cozy & clean cottage steps away from a private beach. Definitely will be going back!
