Enjoy your stay at our cozy cottage, on 850 acre Manistee Lake. Centrally located in the northwestern area of Northern Michigan. This cottage on the lake, with your own sandy beach, is quaint, and is a place where wonderful memories can be made! 

2 bedrooms, 1 bedroom-full bed, 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed-full on bottom and twin bed above. 3/4 bathroom.

Two kayaks are provided for you, spring to fall. ENJOY THE FALL COLORS AT THE COTTAGE or take a senic drive in the area. Located on east side you will see the sunsets. For those who like to cook, there is a newer kitchen and it is stocked with just about all the pots, pans and utensils you would need. We have a waffle iron and mixer for blending some fresh concoctions to enjoy down by the water or fire pit while watching the sunsets.  You can buy the freshest fruits and vegetables, locally grown, home made sauces and baked goods in Kalkaska, at the well known -- CHERRY STREET MARKET. See website-- wwwcherrystreetmarket.   Oh' and don't forget, you can cook a great tasting meal too using our wood BBQ grill. (see picture)  WALLEYE SEASON has opened, don't miss this opportunity.  Manistee Lake has good fishing for Walleye, Small and Largemouth Bass, pike and various panfish. The lake is not crowded and is fun to fish, explore and look at wildlife, like the bald eagle. Bring your boat. Located very close to thousands of acres of state land and small streams. A very good place to go deer and bird hunting, or exploring. All very very close by.  Whether you want to relax and read a good book at the waters edge, play golf nearby at a beautiful golf course, go fishing on your boat or kayak on a very uncrowded and scenic lake. Take a picturesque canoe trip down the magnificent Manistee River not very far away. Boat, sail or waterski the wide open Manistee Lake, it's all available. Great sightseeing is close by, take a short drive to Traverse City, Petoskey, or other surrounding destinations, it is all there for you. The lovely wooded lot, sandy beach and boat dock, will provide you a place to really relax and have a great time. Just bring your boat and launch it across the lake, less than five minutes from the property, and use our dock to tie up to. Looking for night life and entertainment? It is just a short 30 minute drive to the newly expanded Turtle Creek Casino! The cottage is also just a few miles from the GRANDVIEW GOLF COURSE with incredible views and a restaurant. Some great rates and fall colors now. If golf is your pleasure there many more courses within an hour. The surrounding woods are wonderful for hiking, biking and off roading on the extensive ORV trail system. There is a dirt bike trail just minutes away from the cottage. Take advantage of the cooler spring and fall weather and ride the many trails that are nearby. No need to trailer your rides, you can ride along the side of the road in Kalkaska County. Manistee Lake is especially popular for families with younger children as the sandy bottom extends out and is shallow and safe for play. The beach and shallow water at the property edge is really great fun for dogs to play as their feet can touch the bottom for quite a way out. We provide some firewood so you can enjoy campfires in the fire pit at the lakes edge...bring your marshmallows!
