Family Reunion 2011 Chickadee Cottage
The beach was as described, we went down to the public beach,it was very nice.
Very nice neighbors! Beautiful and exquisite gardens in the neighborhood, delightful walks. We saw deer and rabbits (grandchild loved this!)
Miss the sound of the waves at night.
We became fascinated with the chickadees at the birdfeeder and learned more about them.
Lovely stay on Lake Huron
The cottage sits directly on Lake Huron, mere steps from the water. The beach appears to be quite rocky and likely unsuitable for swimming, but with water temperatures in the mid 40's, that was not an issue. The cottage is approximately a half mile from downtown, the marina, and beach. There is a nice deck overlooking the lake. The grounds and interior are in excellent shape, tastefully decorated (yes, the Chickadee theme abounds), and very clean.
The main sitting room/dining room overlooks the lake and has comfortable seating (I dozed happily in the recliner after a long day on the water). The kitchen is very thoroughly equipped, with every requirement for a housekeeping type stay met. There is also a nice bbq grill.
Sleeping arrangements include a bedroom downstairs with two twin beds and an upstairs with like 7 beds, including one full and the remainder twins. There is one bath up and one bath down. The downstairs bath is off the bedroom, and it might put some people off that anyone using that bath will walk through the bedroom to get there. That didn't bother us. As a couple used to sharing a bed, we would have preferred a queen to the two twins, but again, not a major issue. The beds were comfortable and clean, and there were plenty of good quality towels available.
Booking with the owner was professionally handled and hassle free, with our damage deposit returned in short order following our stay. There was a $50 cleaning fee which is not spelled out on the website but was clearly communicated prior to our booking. I would suggest including that in the fee structure articulated on the web.
For two couples or a family or group, I view the Chickadee Cottage as an excellent value. We certainly plan on staying there next year when we are doing our annual trip.
