The Space

The cottage was built in the 1950s, its small but very nicely remodeled inside. Updated floors, kitchen cabinets, counters, siding, front porch. Enjoy your morning coffee on the new back deck. The water in the house is from a spring so it's delicious, everything works great. Everything in the house is fair game food, condiments etc... the only thing I ask if you use the last of any condiment or spice that you leave me a few bucks to replace it. There is a grill on the back porch and a fire pit your welcome to use. I do have wood but if there isn't any you can purchase some at Pohl's Market.

Guest Access

You can have access to put a boat in but no where to leave the boat in the water over night. The access to put the boat in is just down and around the corner from the cottage. Kayaks can go in right across the street at the easement. Fire pit, gas grill are all for your enjoyment. I try to keep wood there but you can buy your own if there isn't any there, but your welcome to what's there. Kayaks are for your enjoyment as well, at your own risk of course, they both have a life cushion and must stay with the kayak at all times, DNR will stop you if you don't have one. 16 years or younger must have a life jacket, which are by the back door.

Interaction with Guests

I do not usually meet my guest, but I am only 10 minutes away from the cottage so if you need anything please call me I usually have my phone and if I am out of town during your stay I will let you know ahead of time.

The Neighborhood

Very quiet in the winter months. Many people live in there cottages year round. Very friendly most know me as I have owned the cottage for almost 17 years. Summer months are a little different, many stay thru the summer so lots of activity, no wake on the lake after 7pm, no wake means you can't make a large waves, you may troll. The lake is great to put the kayaks in both in the am and pm. You won't find a prettier lake, you can clearly see the bottom of the lake in most places. It is a deep lake and there are fish they are just in the deeper part of the lake.

Getting Around

Gas station Pohl's Market (friends of mine) with pizza, subs, movie rental, beer and wine on the corner of Colman road and Winn. Groceries at Weidman IGA plus plenty of bars that serve great food. Corkeys in Beal City, Elly Mae's in Weidman both have excellent food. No pizza delivery to the cottage but Pizza King right next to grocery store. There is a Dollar General across from the IGA.

Other Things to Note

This house is NOT baby proofed. I just put in a new kitchen and floors. Please consider that this is my family cottage so please leave it the way you found it. There is a laundry basket in bathroom, please put your dirty towels etc in there. No need to strip the beds I do that when I clean. Dishes must be washed, it's ok to leave them to dry.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
