The space Adorable Beach Area Cottage for a Perfect Vacation Getaway. With so many things virtually at your doorstep, this cottage is the Perfect Getaway any time of year. A quiet cozy cottage in a unique area within a short relaxing walk to clean, sandy, and quiet Lake Michigan Beach. Sleeps 6-8 people comfortably. The open, bright, and pleasing feel inside the cottage is enriched with elements to tie it in with the surrounding woods and coastal atmosphere. When the air conditioning is not desired, the large opened windows let in the light as well as the soothing roar of the waves over the dunes on the lakeshore and the seabreezes wafting through the trees. During the Autumn and Winter seasons, a roaring fire in the fireplace completes the ambience of the wooded wonderland. WHAT'S PROVIDED The entire cottage space is included for our guests' use. Bed, bath, and kitchen linens are provided as well as kitchen dinnerware, cookware, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave oven.
