The ‘Lakeview Cottage’ is a cute, comfortable cottage just a short 300' walk from Nichols Lake.  It has 2 bedrooms plus a sleeping nook with a full bath, sleeping up to 5 people.  The kitchen, dining and living room areas are open to each other.  The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker, and everything you need to cook and serve.  One bedroom has a king bed, another has a queen bed, and sleeping nook has a twin bed.  There is a gas grill, picnic table, and outdoor furniture on the large deck. 

The ‘Lakeview Cottage’ offers lake access to a swimming area with a sandy bottom which is ideal for small children.  A dock and row boat is provided as well.  The lake and surrounding area is also great for fishing, skiing, kayaking, hiking and biking.  The Manistee National Forest swimming area and boat launch are also located on the lake.  Enjoy daily sightings of eagles, loons, blue herons, hummingbirds and more.  The backyard backs up to our privately owned woods with walking trail.

The Lakeview Cottage is located 2 miles west of Bitely, MI on Nichols Lake.  It is a 153 acre spring-fed lake with reported depths of 50'.  It has only 15 lake front cottages; the rest is National Forest offering less speed-boat traffic.


Additionally, there are 2 lakefront weekly-rental cottages available across the two-track road offering the perfect place for multiple families or friends to vacation together. One is ‘The Nichols Lake Log Cabin’ and the other is ‘The Nichols Lake Gray Cottage’.  All three come with their own dock and row boat. 

Reserve all three cottages and enjoy building memories with your family in new and exciting ways!

Weekly pontoon rental available (first come, first served).

    We are so thankful to find such a peaceful, comfortable cottage on the most beautiful lake. Everything was perfect! The cottage is very clean and has very comfortable furnishings. So nice to have our own private area on the lakefront-such a calm and beautiful setting! We enjoyed hiking around the area too, that was an added surprise to have access to trails right out our front door.
