About Cheryl and Stephanie
This is a family owned property that has been passed down by generation to generation. We are four siblings that are interested in keeping the spirit of family vacations alive and affordable. All of us were brought out here as children to weekend and vacation.
Cheryl and Stephanie purchased this Cottage in 1940
Why Cheryl and Stephanie chose Shelbyville
This property came into our family through our Aunt and Uncle. Our Aunt ran a store from this property and the building still stands as a family cottage. She started leasing the rental cottage out when she ran the store. Her sister and brothers came out to enjoy the lake and as their families grew they brought their children. My mother inherited the property when all of her siblings passed on. When she passed on we her children inherited this property. This is our little piece of heaven.
What makes this Cottage unique
As a family we have maintained and improved this property through the years. We enjoy spectacular sunsets and have many special memories of the lake.

A Great Cottage
This is the best place. The cottage was spotless clean and ready to be enjoyed. Located on the south side of the lake, it is very private and quiet. Weather was warm but with the front and back door open there was a wonderful breeze all the time. The beach was clean and the lake had a sandy bottom. Looking off the front deck we saw the most beautiful sunset over the lake. Think we enjoyed our stay? You betcha. Enjoyed it so much that we already booked it again for next year. If you’re looking for a fantastic place to enjoy for a vacation, you’ve found it. It deserves the 5 star rating I gave it.
Property needs updates. Property is listed as 2 bedrooms,
but second bedroom is a porch and has no door from the living room. Bedroom has a window to the porch . If you expecting some privacy, there none . In my opinion this is one bedroom cottage with porch going to the deck. Owners are very nice people and quickly respond to all requests.
Thanks for your review. We haven't had the comment about privacy from our other renters. We are looking into installing a sliding barn door to offer more privacy to the porch bedroom.
A great to place to spend a week!
This cottage was a wonderful place for us to stay for a week. It was as presented on VRBO. No complaints whatsoever. The owners were quick to respond to our questions. The place was nicely equipped and easily met our expectations. The AC was helpful for sleeping on one warm and humid night. Gas grille worked well and fuel was included. The grandkids who stayed a couple of nights were pleased with their beds on the porch. Kitchen appliances were all fine. If my wife and I were to visit the Gun Lake area again, this place would be our first choice considering budget constraints for fixed income seniors. We recommend this cottage.
This is the perfect lakeside getaway. It has all you might need. tranquil, picturesque view. Clean, sandy bottom lake that is shallow for a long distance out from the shore. Quiet neighborhood.
We came from California specifically for birding this area of Michigan. The location of this charming home was close to many birding sites. We were glad we made the choice to stay here.
Thank you, Cheryl and Steph, for providing the opportunity for quests to relax and unwind with this gem.
It was old and could use some repairs, however, was very comfortable
Our experience was excellent. The owners were very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions or problems. (We had a water issue that was tended to immediately.) Will definitely go back.
Quaint cottage on beautiful lake
We had a wonderful time staying in this rustic little cottage on Gun Lake. It is exactly as we expected it to be and nice and clean. Everything we needed to enjoy a week exploring the lake and wonderful owners as well. We are already planning next year’s visit!
