This is the original structure on the property and dates from the 1930's. The field stone chimney fireplace, although not currently functional, adds much character and charm. The modern bathroom with claw foot tub/shower combo provides modern convenience. Front deck with picnic table provides a view of the lake. The house sits a bit low in the dune.....with time the dune grew up around the house. (Michigan winters can be brutal!) This unit available year round.

About Brian M Wahl
A local farm boy who grew up 2 miles south of Pt. Austin on what is knows as "Wahl's Curve" locally. I went away to college, dabbled in several different things...spent a number of years working in banking, spent several winters in Spain and now have returned to the area. I am the Owner of Blue Sky Resort (fka Tranquil Sands), the Owner of Blue Sky Farm (11 acres near Gotts corner on Kinde Rd. which is under development to put it kindly) and Broker/Owner of Thumb Realty. I try to keep busy, but have a tendency to get off track to socialize.
Brian M Wahl purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Brian M Wahl chose Port Austin
This cottage is NOT modern (for modern, book 3214 Beach front or cabin side) but provides modern comfort. The sagging floor, the not currently functional field stone chimney and the deck with picnic table and lake views provides a special romantic atmosphere. Perfect place for 2 couples to share or a couple with limited number of children.

The perfect retreat for a relaxing getaway.
We loved our visit in Cabin # 6 and will definitely be coming back. It was very well maintained. Plus, the owner Bryan is very nice and extremely accommodating. The beach was amazing and the cabin is very comfortable, especially for being over 80 years old. We really liked the charm and nostalgia of being in the original 1930's cabin too. Thank you Bryan and we will hopefully see you again soon.
Had the best time ever!!!
My family and I went there for the first time ever and we had a blast. Brian the owner was absolutely fantastic and welcoming. We actually extended our visit just so we can stay longer. We will definitely be returning and making this our new up north vacation spot. We recommend this place to everyone. Thank you Brian for a wonderful time!!!
Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed your stay and am thrilled you will be coming back regularly! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
Cozy winter time stay
A nice cozy winter retreat!
Great stay! Comfortable, nice place!
Great escape cabin.
We stayed in Cabin 6 of the Blue Sky Resort, and had a very relaxing weekend. Cabin 6 is the oldest cabin in the resort, but it has been updated, and is very homey. Brian is very nice, and is willing to help in any way if needed. The beach is great, and not crowded. At most, we had to share the 100+ feet of beach front with 8 other people. Plenty of relaxing time with a great view of the lake.
I am staying here while working in the area. I was really having trouble finding a place to stay, when I happened upon this place while driving by. I really lucked out! The owner is very accommodating and was happy to help. I love the little cabin we stay in, and the beach is beautiful!
Come stay in the Tip of the Thumb and Get Away from it all! We are NOT in the middle of no where, we are at the end of no where. A short 2 hour drive from Metro Detoroit yet gives you that Up North feeling without the I-75 commute.
