About Theresa Emmerling

18 years ago we bought our cottage on Mill Lake to have a quiet place to go and get away from the busy every day routines. We also wanted our children to have a place to take their friends and enjoy the great outdoors. Our time was split between relaxing and having fun. Our summer weekends were consumed with tubing, fishing, swimming, attending the Hot Air Balloon Festivals, Worlds Largest Breakfast Table along with lots of local attractions. Winter weekends were spent ice fishing, ice skating, sledding and indoor puzzles and games. Thru the years, our family has built many memories on this lake and in town at festivals. In 2012 we purchased and rebuilt the house next to ours. Now our friends and family can also enjoy the area but yet have a private place to stay.

Theresa Emmerling purchased this house in 2012

Why Theresa Emmerling chose Battle Creek

Great location just off the main road with only a 15 minute drive into Battle Creek or Hastings for unlimited activities, shopping and festivals. It is also centrally located between Detroit and Chicago. The lake itself is large enough to have fun on but yet small enough to not be busy or overcrowded.

What makes this house unique

Being a small, private lake offers a quiet, relaxing atmosphere. Located on the east side of the lake offers longer evenings and views of the sunset. The dead end road keeps the traffic to a minimal. All sports lake offers endless water activities.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this beautiful little cottage for our anniversary. It had everything we needed and then some. Hubby got some great ice fishing in and caught a lot of blue gill and perch.

We got to meet the owners, Theresa and Richard, and they are so nice and really care about their renters. We will definitely stay again!

Thanks for everything

Beautifuly done, so peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. From the layout to the views, we couldn’t have asked for more! My wife and I needed a break from Detroit and the peace and serenity we found here was exactly what we needed. We welcomed in the New Year with a lovely sunset and woke to snowbirds on the lake. Hardest part was leaving... Can’t wat to return.

Beautiful setting and cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in December during a cold stretch (temps below zero). It was beautiful with the snow and the quiet. In addition to the positives already described in other reviews, we want to mention the great lighting—both natural and electric. No matter where you sit, there’s enough light to read.
