Unique Features

A propane grill will get your group fired up for some great meals. If you bring your four-legged friend, there is a fenced in area behind the garage. The sandy beach is adjacent to the cottage.

If some grown-up entertainment is required, The Kewadin Casino will pick you up at the cabin and return your group (of at least 4) as well. Unique day trips are popular with all of our guests: Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is 59 miles; Tahquamenon Falls State Park is 85 miles; Mackinac Bridge is under 2 hours.

The land between the cottage and the beach can be weedy and muddy, depending on the weather. Cell phone service at the cottage is virtually nonexistent, but we have a landline.

Things To Do

The word Getaway is appropriate for this Michigan vacation rental. Add tons of privacy and you’ve got a great place for a family barbeque, bonfire, or just reading and relaxing. Feel like exploring like a local? Nearby is a very popular, 18 hole golf course along Indian Lake, and the historic Manistique Water Tower. The Fayette State Park & Historic Town-site is a village that includes 22 historic buildings, museum exhibits and a visitor center.

Area festivals and events go all year long: Folk Fest is for all ages: Children’s Area with the Abra Cadabra Arcade and
for the adults, the Paul Bunyan Beer Garden quenches your thirst. Boat rentals can be found at the Curtis Fish and Hunt Shop. The Manistique area has an abundance of remote wilderness lakes, quiet rivers and bays teeming with fish.

My wife and I just completed a two-week stay at the Northern Lake Michigan Getaway to celebrate my recent retirement and her XXth birthday. The beachfront A-frame cottage was all we hoped it would be and much more. Bright and open, the space allowed us to keep a close eye on nature as spring unfurled. The wall of windows facing Lake Michigan was awesome. We were captivated as bald eagles and ring-billed gulls flew past overhead, and as common mergansers and loons swam past. By the end of our stay, we also saw broods of Canada goose goslings. It was a natural paradise. Of course, the best feature of the property is the lake — which shared its many moods during our stay — just a few feet from the house. The setting also offers a great deal of seclusion. During our time in May, we only saw one other couple strolling the sandy beach. Inside, the cottage has a lived-in feeling that invites you to make yourself at home. The master suite loft was so welcoming after a full day of hiking, reading, movie-watching, eating, drumming and enjoying each other's company. The sunroom also allowed us a little space when different activities called. In all, the Getaway was a perfect setting for this new time in our lives. Mark and Christine- Port Washington, WI
