Property Description

Enjoy Big Star Lake in the comfort of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath cottage situated in the Northeast corner of Big Star Lake. This recently updated beauty is nestled in one the sandiest corners of the lake-perfect for kids to play while parents relax on the multiple decks both in and out of the sun. Also situated within short walking distance of Big Star Campground, kids will love walking over to the General Store for penny candy while parents take in the views that include a perfect West facing view of the stunning sunsets. The dock is perfect for either relaxing on beach chairs, fishing, or docking your boat should you choose to bring it and put it in at the easily accessible public boat launch across the lake. The owners also encourage you to use their kayaks should you want to workout during your stay (don't forget to bring your life jackets).

Inside the cottage you'll find very recently updated bathrooms in both the master bedroom and guest area, as well as a washer and dryer to keep those swimsuits and smoky clothes from the evening campfire clean. A full kitchen is at your disposal as well as an outdoor grill for all your cooking while at the lake. Additionally, there is Wi-Fi available for use with all mobile devices as well as Google Cast for those that want to watch their favorite movies from Netflix and Hulu in the off chance it rains :)

Lastly, should you want to leave the tranquility of this setting, and want some exercise outside of kayaking and swimming, the Marquette Trails golf course is less than a mile from the cottage, as well as scores of hiking trails and fishing on the famous Pere Marquette River.

Come experience lake living at it's best with all the comforts of home and the best views on the lake!

2nd Annual Big Star Trip

Once again, this cottage met all expectations. The beach is so enjoyable; our children swam and played in the sand all week. They also added a really fun water trampoline! It does get pretty hot in the kids' room, but it looks like the owners are fixing the windows soon, so that should not be a problem in the future. We ate dinners on their beaut... Read More

Beautiful place, but there was a RAT.

The property was beautiful. The lake was perfect to swim in, and the beach was nice and sandy. It was very nice that they had kayaks and a paddle boat for us to use as well. However, there was a rat in the house that we had to personally catch and let go during our stay. So that was extremely unsettling, and disturbing, which is the main reason wh... Read More
