The cottage and lake was just as it was presented. Having been to the lake before, I knew what it was like. But the lake in front of the cottage was absolutely perfect for my four granddaughters, ages 1 1/2 to 7. They loved it, as we all did. I was a little concerned about the road in front but it was not an issue at all. The cottage was very roomy, more so than I thought. There were 4 adults and 4 children in the cottage and 2 adults in the apartment, where all we did was sleep, but worked out perfectly. Both places were very clean and very nicely appointed. The cottage had a very "cottage" decor, almost felt like Cape Cod. Diane and Greg were very accommodating, offering very helpful information about the surrounding area. Took a day trip to the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, don't miss the Pierce STocking drive. Went to Lake Michigan and loved the waves. I would suggest a wonderful beach along the lake near Onekema near Portage Lake. The beach has no rocks at all with beautiful sand and gradually gets deeper. Also nearby is a pier which is always nice to walk on. Nice little park and a great ice cream store right next to it. It was a wonderful week and couldn't have asked for the cottage or apartment to be any better. My adult children said they forgot how much they loved it there, and certainly the cottage helped to make it so!
Great views of lake, private patio, grill& firepit allow privacy and relaxation.
