  • Beautiful Lake Michigan Retreat


    First time renting a lake house on Lake Michigan and it exceeded all of my family’s expectations. From staying at the beautiful lake house to watching the beautiful sunsets over Lake Michigan, our vacation was one of our most memorable. Grandkids loved the close proximity to the beach…..the young ones enjoying the playground and the teenage ones enjoying the jumping of the pier into the refreshing water. If you want to rent a lake house, at a location that won’t disappoint a family of all ages, I would highly recommend this lake house. Also, for those golf lovers, or Manistee National is right up the road and will not disappoint!

  • Best experience always


    This beach cottage home is wonderful! I've stayed here a couple of times (for two weeks at a time) when I come to Manistee for work. It's a home away from home to me. The home has everything you need, kitchen is well stocked and I especially like the kitchen appliances. The decor is stylish and views of the beach make it relaxing. I've stayed here in the colder season, so having a fireplace to snuggle up to after work is nice. Fast internet and more importantly the beds are comfortable too! Also, communication with the owner is excellent. I've never had to wonder or worry. It's very close to downtown Manistee where you can eat and shop along the river front. This beach cottage will be my go to place whenever I come to visit Manistee. Don't hesitate if you're thinking about staying here - you will not be disappointed!

  • Great house, wonderful location


    This house was amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better setting to spend the weekend with friends (better weather maybe).

    Beach view, clean, spacious. We will be back in the warmer months for sure!
