Perfect winter cottage
My wife, 2 kids, and I stayed at this cottage for the weekend. It is a perfect winter getaway. We needed to be close to some winter activities. We skied at Treetops in Gaylord, and knowing that we had a warm and cozy cottage to come back home to after was wonderful. If you’re looking for an up north retreat on the water for any season in Michigan, this is the place for you.

This cute little cottage was clean and very nicely decorated. Had everything you may need and then some (minus clothes and food)! We wished they would have described location better and how the beach it's on is incredibly small but our toddlers would play there in the evening. Our family had a fantastic time discovering this quant area!! Owners were fabulous and so accommodating!!
