Island View Cottage on the lake

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 8

This spring-fed lake is so clean it begs for swimming and water sports. You have plenty of room to go power boating, skiing, tubing and fishing. A sandy beach and dock are perfect for swimming and other water fun.

The Island View Cottage is an affordable rental cottage right on the lake! This fully furnished cottage has a great view of the lake and a very functional layout. The large living room is just great to gather in at the end of a day. The two bedrooms and pull out couch in the living room allow sleeping for up to 8 people. Dine in the open kitchen area or outside on the deck overlooking the lake and its breathtaking sunsets.

Just pack and go -- we provide everything! Linens are included. The lake shore itself has a sandy bottom and stays shallow for a long distance out from shore, giving loads of room for young children to play in the water or for adult water sports. Have your own boat? Bring it there is a dock to tie up to and the boat ramp is a short distance away.

Prime location and Amazing People!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented every year a beach front home and this one take the win!! Mike and Paul were so accommodating and close for any of our needs. We extended our trip because we didn't want to leave and still wish we were floating in the clear water a week after leaving! We can't wait to be back and have another week at this beautiful cottage!!

Island View was wonderful! We had 3 generations there and everyone loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for a vacation with little ones. The warm shallow water is clear with a sandy bottom. The beach is your very own with lots of toys provided! You can just sit and watch the kids play and splash around. Kayaks and paddleboats are fun! The house is so nice and Michelle and Paul are great!

Excellent week at Island View Cottage on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back home from our wonderful week . If you have small children/grandchildren, the Island View Cottage on the Lake is perfect with a shallow beach right outside your door, including beach toys, kayak's, 2 paddle boats, and canoe for all ages! Michelle & Paul are wonderful - they are there to make every moment of your vacation a memorable one! Husband & Son in Law caught Bass & Northern Pike right out front of Cottage & around Island on paddle boats. 6 yr old Grandson went on kids kayak & learned to ride alone for very first time! Wonderful time & memories made ... already looking forward to next summer vacation there! Thank you again, Michelle & Paul - we soooo appreciate all you did & special touches you add for your guests!

So much more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was absolutely wonderful in helping us plan our cottage stay! She answered my questions quickly and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation. My husband and I, along with our 3 children, ages 10, 8, and 2 had a blast just hanging out on the water for the week. The water was very shallow and perfect for the kids to play, and the kids had so much fun with the kayaks. We were even able to use the canoe! EVERYTHING we could possibly think of was provided, from towels and bedding to a HUGE variety of sand and beach toys and life jackets for all ages! The house was extremely clean and bright and cheerful, and the sunroom made the perfect board game room for our family. I HIGHLY recommend the Island View Cottage! OH! and Michigan's Adventure is just a few miles away!
