Adorable Vacation Cottage Townline Lake: Paradise! Boat Swim, Kayak, Fish, Paint

Lakefront cottage with kitchen and patio
This modernized Cottage provides the perfect lake playground for your vacation.

ABOUT THE COTTAGE LOCATION AND THE LAKE

The cottage is 2 places up the inlet/channel to 250 acre all-sport Townline Lake. I've remade the 'old building out back' into a modern experience, with deck, dock, grill, and all the amenities! Relax , play in the lake, launch your own boat, use the kayaks or pedal boat, cook s'mores. Spend days outdoors relaxing, or fishing, swimming, or bike-pedaling around the lake. Kids love to hunt the mighty turles! There's a firepit.

Attached deck sits over the channel. To one side is a little-used community access lot with children’s swings. Corn-hole game for your competitive streak.

Fish bluegills, bass, crawpy, sunnies, or an occasional bullhead, or pike. There's a bass fishing tournament usually once a month, known for giving up the occasional trophy small-mouth!

WHAT'S HAPPENING CLOSEBY
Hike west Michigan trails, enjoy West Michigan life. Nearby you can visit new wineries, old orchards, or the cheese factory. Head for Amish farmstands for eggs, fabulous West Michigan fruits, and other so-fresh produce. Treat yourself to some of the best country ice cream at King’s Store, famous in these parts.

Head a little further west for Lake Michigan’s pristine shores. Or cast a line into any of Michigan’s more than 65,000 waterways, rivers, and lakes – 11,000+ lakes larger than 5 acres. Here you are never more than a few minutes from some other kind of water, nor more than 85 miles from a Great Lake.

Perhaps you're looking for a quiet getaway for two, and to explore west Michigan? Grand Rapids, 'Craft Beer City USA', is less than an hour away, have a taste at the original Founders. Or sample your favorites and taste an all-new ale at nearby breweries- there’s been an explosion of local/Michigan craft breweries in recent years, not to missed by the new ale or IPA lover.

And there's a casino in Mt. Pleasant, 45 minutes away.

ACTIVITIES ON TOWNLINE LAKE

Two kayaks and a paddle boat - and there is a public launch for your own pontoon and tie off at your own dock.

An island ‘sandbar’ and the shallows – take a bag chari, kayak to the sandbar, tie off and sit ankle deep in water on the sandy bottom. Read. Cocktail. If you’re lucky, get called into a game of water-volleyball. Head to the deeper water and swimming-hole cove. Townline Lake's waters warm in June, cool mid-September.

Enjoy birdwatching – we host all of Michigan’s woodpeckers here, we feed the orioles through June, and the hummingbirds all summer. Watch the Buzzard ballet from your deck.. their graceful sky gliding is beautiful to see. Watch Harriette, the great blue heron, as she wades the edges for crawfish.

IN THE COTTAGE

The perfect 'new' place for a getaway for a single person, a couple, or a family/group of four. It’s a fresh welcoming space, 17.5’ x 17.5’, and has two floors with new cottage comforts. Queen size bed down, twin beds up, a little cottage.

It includes your choice of cooking surfaces, some kept in drawers… a Nu Wave Cook Surface with Nu Wave pans – with Instructions for the first time user. A standard two-element burner in another drawer. An outdoor grill. A griddle. A crockpot. A micro-wave. Firepit. Eating space for 4/5. No oven.

PROVIDED:
Dishes/cutlery, cooking appliances, bedding, bath towels, beach towels.

A loc and provisions. Upstairs is a good place to put less-used items. A queen-sized bed is on the main floor. The upstairs being a peaked room with just 5’ 5” standing space in the middle, it's like a twin beds hideaway. Two camp chairs look to the channel. (just) enough space in the attic to add a single air mattress for a five-member family. Next door, just inside the back door is a washer and dryer for your use. There's a flat screen tv and dvd available - reception is nil - bring your hotspot and Roku if watching TV is important. (There's so much nothing to do, that no-one has yet said they miss having TV. Some have said "..what was I thinking?" A 12x12 deck is perfect for reading, grilling, relaxing, watching a few pontoons heading to the swimming hole. ENJOY MICHIGAN! There are several other water businesses around - kayak, canoe, boat, or float - on nearby river trips . We’ll help with information and directions to the Little Muskegon River, or Big Muskegon River, Rogue River, or any of many other beautiful floatable – some pristine - waterways a half hour/less than an hour away. Newly in our area, a few wineries. Try your luck aat the casino in Mt. Pleasant. Hike the North Country Trail. Bring your bicycles - the Heartlan Trail runs closeby. Bring your ORV and enter the Huron-Mannistee National Forest a half hour from here. Most of all, fish, fish, read. There are kayak liveries nearby. You bring your own lunch and drinks. PARKING 2 parking spots and park your boat trailer as well. Let us know what we can do to prepare for your arrival. Wine and cheese?

Beautiful Fall Spot
We rented this adorable little cabin for an extended fall break weekend. The cabin is so cute and really had everything we needed. Within 30 minutes of the cabin you can hike in the many parks or bike the Fred Meijer trail. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and paddle boat and even had an enjoyable ride around the lake with our hosts on their pontoon. Quiet area and very peaceful, just what we were looking for. Would gladly stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Just what I needed!
The channel cottage is just as pictured! Very clean, efficient, and right on the waters edge. Everything you need is right there. The owner greeted me upon arrival and gave me an overview of the property. She is a friendly lady and makes you feel right at home. I spent most of my time on the back deck fishing or just enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. The rest of my time was out in the kayak paddling around the lake. Highly recommend going to the little island with a sandbar. I spent hours there relaxing with a few cold ones and just enjoying the beauty of the lake. I had an excellent meal at the Alley cat bar and grill not far away. I got the brisket with deep fried gouda and parmesan garlic fries A+++

5/5 Excellent

Sweet cottage by the lake
Me and my daughter had such a nice time. Everything we needed and more. Very peaceful and relaxing time. Thank you!!
