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.

Why Theresa Emmerling chose Johnstown
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.

We had an awesome time. The cottage was beautifully decorated, very clean, and the owners were very friendly and had thought of everything. The lake was nice and warm with great fishing. We are looking forward to a return visit.
Big thanks to Rich and Theresa for providing such a charming cottage cottage. Look forward to 2019
Had a couple of great weeks on Mill Lake. Already looking forward to a week next summer. We had a serious last minute medical situation present itself, and they were willing to go above and beyond if necessary and work with us if we needed to cancel. Fortunately it worked out that we were able to stay the full time planned. A nice quiet lake, friendly residents around the lake and great fishing, (even if I did seem to catch the same 12 inch bass multiple times)!! See you next year!!
Best cottage rental I have ever rented!! The cottage was beautiful inside and out. Everything you needed was right there at your fingertips. Fishing and weather cooperated very well. So peaceful and relaxing. Will definitely go back. Great job to the owners of this cottage.
Cottage is adorable, brand new inside, and clean! Cozy little community with friendly neighbors. Excellent place to unwind and relax.
Paradise by the lake
We had the best time at Mill Lake! The owners are truly wonderful people. The little cottage was perfect for my husband, me and our pup. We enjoyed fishing on the lake, going to a couple wineries nearby and seeing a few sights around town. The Banfield General Store was great for anything you need, and just a short drive away. It was the most relaxing weekend and we couldn't have asked for better weather! Definitely hope to come back someday!!!
We had a great anniversary weekend! It did rain alot while we were there but the cottage was so nice, that we didn't mind staying indoors. We meet the owners and they were very nice and helpful with any questions that you might have. We are coming back here in August and can't wait for our return here. We will definitely be back next year also.
