A Perfect cottage for families. We rent our Cottage weekly, Sunday to Sunday. The cottage is situated on the beach of Manistee Lake. You will have unobstructed views of the lake from inside your cottage. Watch the breath taking sunsets from inside your cottage, on the patio, on the beach, or on your dock. Bring your water toys and attach them to your dock. The cottage is perfect for your summer vacation. Play in the water during the day and enjoy a nice glass of wine by the fire at night.

The space
Our cottage is comfy. The bedrooms are not huge. Bedroom #1 has a new queen bed, side table with lamp, and a closet. Bedroom #2 has two sets of bunk beds (4 single beds), cubes to put clothes in, and a closet. The bathroom is efficient by design. If you want to spend your vacation in a sprawling bathroom I would suggest going elsewhere. Our completely updated bathroom has one of the smallest, yet efficient sinks you will find. There is a stand up shower tiled from floor to ceiling with soap and shampoo available for your use. The living room has an Ikea lounge couch and a reclining chair. There is a 42 inch smart samsung TV with an electric fireplace under it for your viewing pleasure. There is WiFi and Cable. In the kitchen you will find a full size refrigerator, stove and stove top, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and everything else that you would find in a kitchen including the sink. In the sunroom you will find a futon that overlooks the beach and Manistee Lake.

Since you have exclusive privileges to the dock feel free to bring your boat or jet skis. You will also find great fishing off the end of the dock.
The sand is clean and white. The water is clear and beautiful that slopes slowly towards the lake.
We like to take walks on the road that goes partially around the lake. We also enjoy a fire at night with a fire pit(communal) that is just off the patio by the water.
There is a store within walking distance that makes pizzas, dishes ice cream, and has all your other necessities you might have forgotten.
