Property Details

Updated: Mar 30, 2015
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

1657 Manitou Lane

Middleville, Michigan

A spacious 2-story cottage that has been completely remodeled. Located in beautiful Yankee Springs Township on Barlow Lake, a private lake 30 minutes South of Grand Rapids and 20 minutes North of Kalamazoo.

Barlow Lake is a quiet, spring-fed, 275 acre lake that is perfect for fishing and all water sports. The lake is labeled as the second cleanest lake in the lower peninsula. Sandy beaches and a sandy lake bottom make this cottage an enjoyable place to spend time with the kids or grandkids. This cottage sleeps 6-12 comfortably and is convienently set up for families with young children.

Enjoy a peaceful, quiet week of fishing or canoeing with one of our boats, and lounging on the shore. This lake is great for all sports and less crowded than any of the public lakes in the area. Located on a quiet road, with a 2-stall garage, this cottage is perfect for the family that wants to spend a week on the water, or for the couple that desires a week away from the bustle of the city.

Perfect Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with my son and his family , found this to be the ideal vacation setting. The cottage is beautifully remodeled, very spacious and comfortable. My two year old grandson could stand up in the shallow water, but the gradual increase in depth allowed plenty of swimming space for his older brothers. The cottage owner promptly attended to any question or concern we had; which was not many, since this turned out to be the perfect lake vacation for us!

Great location - nice lake

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this cottage for 2 weeks. We had some friends visit a couple days and grandkids over the holiday weekend. The place was very clean and there was plenty to do. The neighbors were extremely friendly and the owners were very helpful. We had a problem with the starter on the pontoon but the owners took care of that right away and we had no more problems with it.
This is a wonderful location for us, for we live in Lansing and the drive was very short.
The only drawback was there is no phone service at the cottage. I was not able to get cell service so I had to go up on the hill about 1/4 mile to get messages or make calls.
