Cottage, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Our beautiful stone and log lake front cottage is located on Thumb

Lake (Lake Louise) about 45 minutes south of Petoskey, Michigan. We

are 30 minutes drive to Gaylord and Boyne City and about an hour’s

drive from Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island, and Traverse City. The

private sandy beach front with dock, diving board, raft, air

mattresses, canoe, sail boat along with the miles of wooded hiking

or biking trails minutes from the door provide endless adventure for

all members of the family.

Two separate indoor areas provide room to spread out on a rainy day. The spacious living area in the house comes equipped with TV and VCR, games and books, even an indoor hammock space. The barn loft has a ping pong and pool table, puppet theater, games, books for all ages, couches and chairs. A hot tub is part of the package and Lake Louise is renowned for its marvelous swimming and fishing. A public boat launch is located

on the lake should you want to bring your motorized boat for water skiing or fishing. The house is fully equipped for your stay with towels (bring your own beach towels), linens, dishes…. Just bring your clothes and food and have a week of fun. We are interested in

finding renters who will enjoy and care for this marvelous cottage as much as we do. Perfect location for color tour rentals.
