Why Nora Glab chose Michigan

We fell in love with the area and it's history. Many cottages on this lake have been passed down through the generations. if you love woods, nature and a beautiful spring-fed, sandy bottom lake to enjoy and relax near, this is the place for you. It has created lasting memories for our family.

What makes this house unique

We love the large yard and wooded areas near the property. The view from the porch is wonderful and relaxing. It's the best of both worlds with the smaller inland lake in your backyard or the larger Lake Michigan a short drive away. Whatever you're in the mood for.

A perfect cottage on a perfect lage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her for the past three years. It is a wonderfully maintained cottage with period antiques (that we put away out of the way of our children). The sandy bottom lake front of the cottage is great for small children. The had great fun trying to catch the small fish with their little nets. The water was also much warmer than lake Michigan so this was the perfect location for us earlier on in the season. It is about a 25 min trip to South Haven so we would often take the kids to the big cool wooden play area over there, and day trips to St Josephs were good family fun.

The owner's have been great to us over the years, and they take pride in their home, so please treat it well for them.
