Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps
Located in southwest Michigan (about 20 minutes northeast of
Elkhart, Indiana). It is located on beautiful Shavehead Lake with
100 ft. of lake frontage. Swim, fish, canoe or read - do as much or
as little as you want. The cottage has been in our family for over
50 years. If you're looking for a resort type setting, this ISN'T
it. It is an old, very well used cottage with mismatched furniture
It has always been a special place to us.
