  • Lovely stay on Lake Michigan!


    The wooded setting directly on Lake Michigan was perfection. We loved the screened in front porch for all of our meals, morning coffee and game times. The deck was our sunset watching base and a shady reading spot during the day. The private beach was well appointed with lots of beach chairs. The fire pit behind the house in the forested area was great for our s'more making! Thanks for sharing your family cottage with us!

  • Lovely week at Whispering Winds!


    We were welcomed to the cottage by Kathy with fresh blueberries and local pastries. The setting amidst the trees directly on Lake Michigan was just spectacular! We especially loved the screened in front porch where we ate all of our meals and enjoyed morning coffee. The deck overlooking the beach was perfect for our sunset viewings. The private beach was perfection and stocked with plenty of extra beach chairs. Thank you so much for sharing your family cottage with us!
