About Dave Mack and Sue Maus
M&M cottage has been in our family since 1985. Dave and I are retired from GM with over 30 years service and have spent the past several years enjoying it as a second home. We live near Lansing, MI and use it year-round. Our grandson especially likes swimming, boating and downhill skiing at Schuss/Shanty Creek.
Dave Mack and Sue Maus purchased this House in 2014
What makes this House unique
The home is located on Cottage Drive where the trees create a tunnel over the road. The home is situated 500’ off the road and near the south end of the Lake Bellaire, which generally has calm water perfect for water sports. Loons are often heard as their nesting area is directly across the lake in the Grass River Natural Area. There area has many restaurants, activities and the Village of Bellaire is a vibrant community.

The cottage was everything we expected judging from the pictures in the listing. The view was amazing from the yard and in the cottage. Fires on the shore, catching walleye, boat rides down the river, great week in a great location. Must go to the Bellaire smokehouse, great fish and jerky. The owners were very nice and met us at the cottage, we did a walk through and got familiar with the place. The lake was very quiet and peaceful. Overall it was a perfect relaxing week in awesome location
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, Stan. We hope you will return again soon.

Hi Scot, we are glad your family enjoyed the cottage and that your mom was comfortable while celebrating her milestone birthday.
Perfect lakeside cottage
My fiance and I enjoyed our stay at M&M cottage with another couple. The home was very clean, roomy and comfortable. We made many of our meals in the home and found the kitchen to be very well stocked.
The backyard features a large lawn, view of Lake Bellaire, open patio with propane fire pit and a screened in porch. We used the kayaks every day. The south end of the lake was warm and fairly quiet the entire week. The dock is in excellent condition. During the fourth of July weekend, we were able to see fireworks in every direction. There is also a fire pit and plenty of wood to burn.
We were all very impressed with how nice, new and clean the entire property is. The artwork in the home ties everything together so nicely.
I would highly recommend this rental to my family and friends. We hated leaving at the end of our stay and hope to return someday!
Thank you for a wonderful review, Erica! We’re happy you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to future visits. Sending best wishes for your upcoming marriage!

Cozy , lake-front getaway packed with amenities
The cozy, lake-front property is a perfect place for a family of five to enjoy some relaxation and fun together. The cottage is beautifully decorated and remodeled and has everything you will need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Our family has played many hours of games on the screened in porch overlooking the picturesque view of Lake Bellaire. We also enjoy the kayaks, beach front, fire pit, and dock that are available with this property. Only a short drive away is the quaint town of Bellaire where my family loves to shop, eat, and spend the afternoon together. The owners of the property are wonderful people and have put in a lot of time and thought to make this place one of our family favorite places to stay.
Thank you Sheila for the very nice comments about our cottage. Your family is always welcome to enjoy our home on Lake Bellaire.
