This lovely cottage on Klinger Lake is perfect in every way. Clean, comfortable, cozy, and utterly charming. The owner obviously takes a lot of pride in ownership and taken great care to ensure that every detail is just right. Located on Sandy Beach at Klinger Lake in Sturgis, MI, this is the ideal location and the perfect retreat. Comfortable rooms with super comfortable beds. Window air conditioners in every bedroom and the main living area downstairs help to keep the cottage cool. The kitchen is well equipped and if you enjoy cooking like I do, then you will appreciate the abundance of nice cookware. The beautiful dock, nice patio & dock furniture, two big umbrellas, gas barbecue, paddle boards, and kayaks all serve to help make time outdoors a lot of fun and wonderful experience. My husband and I were delighted to be able to stay at this charming cottage for two weeks, but honestly, when our time was up, we wished we had planned for three weeks. We look forward to returning next year.
Pros: There were 7 of us women that enjoyed our stay and would come back for another weekend. We were pleasantly surprised that there was more comfortable outdoor seating than shown in the pictures. Most of us spent the entire day outside paddle boarding and floating in the lake and gathering around the fire pit at night. They had everything you could want available to use, beach towels, camping chairs, lake toys and floats, patio umbrellas on the porch and dock, a table inside large enough to seat all of us so we could comfortably laugh and play games, the beds/pillows were all new and comfortable. Cons: the house has its quirks, probably from what seems like foundation issues? It’s visibly crooked when inside. The upstairs bathroom door doesn’t stay closed on its own so you either use it with the door open or put the laundry basket in front of the door to keep it from swinging open. Couple of broken lamps & outlets that didn’t work. Tried to open a couple of windows that look out to the lake but some were stuck closed. We also lost power on Saturday night, unsure why as there were no storms happening but it was the whole lake that lost power not just the house. The power came back on the next morning before checkout. Though the cons list may seem long none of it took away from the overall wonderful experience we had.

The lake and lakefront area were amazing! We spent almost entire time on the decks enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Our one complaint about the home was that the only full bathroom was inside the master suite and not easily accessible to the other bedrooms (and the doorknob latch was broken so the door would not stay shut).We made do, but suggest fixing for future guests! Otherwise it is a super getaway place!

This was a beautiful property! We had sunny weather and enjoyed sitting on the deck with the amazing lake view. The only downside was that the one full bathroom was inside the master suite. This was not convenient at all for 6 people.
