    "Aug, 2016. As the other review's state: plenty of room, cleaned weekly and privacy galore (including the beach area, had 1 person walk by in the week we were there). I grew up in the area and knew that was a secluded section of land and beach as we could never go there. Also, everything truly is there that you could need. Just bring your own food and beverage and kick back (especially around the fire pit at night). I would like to again thank Kevin and his folks for sharing this hidden gem with us,"

  • Breathtaking View of Lake Michigan!

    "I began a search for a cottage on Lake Michigan a year ago and found the listing for the Patterson Cottage. It immediately felt like the right place. I contacted Casey Patterson who was beyond helpful and kept in touch until a week became available. This vacation was by far the best we have ever had. The "cottage" was actually a beautiful home with every amenity, cable tv, wi-fi. Our group included my 84 year old mother who slept in the main floor bedroom and had no problem getting around with her walker. We had a group of 6 total with plenty of room to spare. The setting is directly on Lake Michigan with an observation deck overlooking the beach several steps below. Our days were spent kayaking, swimming and walking the beach. We also explored Manistee which has cute shops and restaurants. One day we drove up to Sleeping Bear Dunes which was an easy drive. We barbecued and ate on the patio most nights followed by the most beautiful sunsets. We read and watched the summer Olympics and felt more relaxed than I have in years. We will count the days until we return."

  • Tranquil, serene, beautiful, quiet, private, easy.

    "Thistledew is a charm. First of all, it isn't often that you find a place that welcomes your four footed family members, and even has treats in a jar on the counter for them! Our two greyhounds had a lovely week, taking long walks on the beach, wading in the surf, and sleeping in the grass. There are enough sleeping spots for many two footed family members in this lovely old house, with interesting nooks and crannies, all lovingly decorated from times long ago. I especially love the upstairs, with a special area that welcomes young readers. I wish I were young again, to sit down and pull out the interesting books and read in the warm, lovely sitting area. The view from inside and outside Thistledew is stunning. You can watch the sun set from the dining table, the couch, the front yard, or you can stroll down the road just a short way and down to the private beach and sit back comfortably in a chair in the pergola, start a nice bonfire, and watch the sunset from there. The waves roll in, the friendly neighbors may stroll by and you can chat or is lovely. Now that we have found this gem, we will be back! It is a low-key hide-away. Don't expect to spend your day on your computer or watch tv. This is a place for serious relaxation and time away from your work life. Cell phone signals are spotty and wi-fi is only available from the front yard of the owners (who were away when we stayed but are very friendly and welcoming and invite you to sit in their yard for the wi-fi if you want it). I shunned the wi-fi but my husband couldn't stay away. I recommend staying away and enjoying your time away from the electronic world. Groceries are a short drive away and there is a complete and great kitchen for cooking (and grilling outside). We highly recommend Thistledew!"

  • Absolutly ideal

    "Great cottage in very quiet setting. The free pontoon boat on the lake and the free canoe on the Manistee River helped make our vacation in Manistee everything we've come to expect in an Up North Michigan vacation. Thanks Jim and Debbie. We're coming back next summer!"
