Property Details

Updated: Sep 6, 2016
LAKESIDE, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps, ROADSIDE, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sle

Our HOUSEKEEPING COTTAGE is located on a beautiful 100' lakefront setting on Paradise Lake, just 8 miles south of Mackinaw City. The property is park like and peaceful, with many trees. We have other cottages that share the property, each can be rented separately which is ideal for family gatherings. There is a dock, bring your boat! The cabin has a fire pit, gas grill, and picnic table. There are plenty of chairs to sit by the lake or fire, making s'mores. Cable TV is included. There is a shared laundry facility on premises. The cottage is non-smoking. The kitchen has everything you'll need, including microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. You'll need to bring your own linens.

The CABIN has two-bedrooms and one bath; both have a fully-equipped kitchen in an area that is shared with the living area. You will feel like you are 'back in time' on Paradise Lake, yet family attractions, restaurants and nightlife abound in nearby Mackinaw City. There are golf courses nearby, and a casino just over the bridge in St. Ignace, or 45 Minutes away in Petoskey.

Paradise Lake is a quiet inland lake (almost 2000 acres, 2.5 miles long) which offers great fishing, swimming and water sports. It is a fisherman's delight, with a variety of fish including: Pike, Perch, Walleye and Bass. The shoreline has a hard-packed sand bottom with some rocks. Water shoes are recommended. It is a very gradual slope making it great for kids wading and swimming. There are two docks for your use, to tie up your small boat and even catch a fish or two! Boat rentals are available at nearby Paradise Lake Marina. Wilderness State Park is just 15 minutes away, with many hiking trails and beautiful sand dunes. Harbor Springs is just 20 miles down the road, Petoskey 30 miles.

Beautiful northern Michigan beckons!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We returned home today after a great week at your cottage. We had a great time and the weather was very nice. Rented a boat again and we had very good luck fishing…plenty of sunfish/blue gills and several nice bass. Great day at the island, played golf, etc….the kids really like it up there. It is so peaceful up there. On the way up we spent an afternoon at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. Way back we spent the night in Cleveland and went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame/Museum. Thanks again for renting to us. We LOVE it there and would imagine we’d like to go back again.

If you are looking to get away from it all, you have found it. But you are close enough to run for a pizza or marshmallows. A great way for families to get together.
