About Mike and Anne Cool
We have fallen in love with the Leelanau Peninsula after renting different vacation homes every year for more than 20 years. Each year, we have gathered with our extended family to enjoy the Up North charm and each other in a relaxed, quiet setting. Together with our kids, we have so many fond memories of gathering for a few days to reconnect - now we look forward to offering this opportunity to you at our property, Knot Just a Cottage!

Relaxing family vacation!
My family and I had a fantastic time at Knot Just A Cottage! There was so much to do, great views and a relaxing time was had by all. There was plenty of space in the house and everything was clean. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone, especially families! Thanks again, for an awesome family vacation spot!
My family gathered for a week vacation up North to celebrate my parent's 50th Anniversary. There were 14 of us, 8 adults and 6 kids and the house was perfect for all of us and some room to spare. We hardly had to leave the property because we were entertained my the beach, dock, hot tub, lawn games, and the multitude of solitary spots to take in the gorgeous views of the Bay and relax. The kitchen was perfect to cook with many items available to us to assist in our meal prep, like oils, spices, etc. A great welcome basket was waiting for us at our arrival which included some local wine and coffee. Easily one of the best VRBO properties I have stayed at. Thank you!
Great location; perfect for families
The property was as described although Google thinks you've arrived a few houses before you are actually there. But that's google's fault. The house was setup great for our family. Basically our 3 married children and one 2 year old - so we didn't even come close to using all the bed that were available. There WERE plenty of fans as described.
The kitchen was spacious and easy to cook in. The extra refrigerator was a huge bonus. Without it we would have been buying ice and using coolers for drinks, etc.
We used both the ping pong table and game room (pop a shot was popular). We sat on the lake around the fire every evening enjoying the moon rising over the water and the stars. Lots of supplies we didn't use but it was nice to have them available.
The owners were very responsive to any questions we had. A couple suggestions before rentng for the next season - (1) upgrade the pots and pans, The non stick pans are very sctractched and worn. (2) repair the pier where it sits on shore (it was fine until after the storm and high waves in the middle of our stay - something was disslodged and now that section of pier isn't stable) (3) move the fire ring that sits at the base on the pier on shore - makes it a bit difficult to step onto the pier. (4) the king mattress on the first floor could use an upgrade; pretty saggy.
Overall - these are minor things in the scope of a weekly rental, I would rent this property again. The location is perfect.
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Knot Just A Cottage and we hope you'll stay with us again. Thank you for your feedback. Just so you're aware, we are on a rotation to replace some mattresses each year - last year we replaced the 2 upstairs kings and this off-season we plan to replace the main floor king as well as restock the kitchen and other annual maintenance items. Thank you!!
We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and three birthdays with 8 adults and 4 children and everyone had a wonderful time. The cottage was great for these many and activities included swimming, kayaking, rented pontoon boat and paddle board, hiking, beaching, Sleeping Bear Dunes, shopping and dinning. Everyone raved about the best family vacation ever and would have liked to stay another week.
