Perfect spot
We had a great time at the cottage. It was very well pointed, clean, and just perfect for the week. Thanks so much Adele!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful cozy cottage!!!
We stayed for a long weekend and had a blast. My family loved the cute little beach and yard. The owner was super fast and responsive when we had a question. We would highly recommend staying here!

5/5 Excellent

Cozy like a warm hug
Cozy, clean, safe. Beautiful location right on the lake. Enough space for our family of 5 to spread out. Stocked with everything you need. Would definitely stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Charming, clean and oh-so cozy!
This cozy cottage was perfect for our annual summer UP trip. We wanted something in the Curtis area and couldn't believe our luck when we stumbled upon this adorable cottage. It's by far the cleanest place we've rented in the UP. The decor is gorgeous and we admired all of the beautiful antique pieces (not typical in a rental) and I'm glad my daughter is well versed in using coasters and placemats. It was blissfully quiet and the few neighbors we met were lovely. Every inch of the cottage has been utilized, and despite its cozy size, we never felt cramped. Well, the bathroom is snug but that's to be expected. Twilight seems to take its time up here but once it was truly dark, we enjoyed some star gazing from the dock. Simply breathtaking! From rainy game days to sunny lake days, we had an awesome visit! Thanks for the fun memories!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful owners, property very well kept, everything you could need is provided. Will stay at the Cozy Cottage again!
