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 Michigan

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.

This is the best

  • 5 of 5

We have been rented lake front vacation house for couple of years, this one is the best.

My husband and I stayed eight nights at this amazing place. Theresa really seemed to have thought of everything you could possibly need to be a very comfortable stay. Everything was great, from the modern updated house setting to the beautiful view of the lake. This is a small house but every inch of it is smartly used. We had our friends, another couple, came over stayed with us for two nights. It’s accommodated four of adults very well.

The fishing is great. We caught lots of fishes in the lake and had a great time! The raw boat and the four person paddle boat is really a plus!

Thank you Teresa and we'll come back again.

Very clean and well kept, owners were very nice and helpful in all areas

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was just what we were looking for. Lots of shopping and nice things to see in the area. In afternoon we set out on the porch and watched the lake, swans, geese and boaters. So relaxing. Only thing needed was a little more shade area in the afternoon as the cottage faces west and we got the full sun. We would highly recommend this cottage and hope we get to come back soon.

Vacation To Relax

  • 4 of 5

This home was beautiful and had everything in it we could need. Very relaxing few days. It was a beautiful lake and good for fishing. The paddle boat was a lot of fun. The only downside is that the water in front of the house is not set up for swimming. The owners were extremely friendly and helful!! Thanks Theresa

Owner's Response: We are in the process of improving the swimming area. The sandy shore line is regularly maintained along the waters edge. The weeds further out are currently professionally treated. Other options for weed control are also being considered.

Get away from it all and then some!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage on Mill Lake provided an opportunity to relax and get away from it all. It far surpassed any and all expectations. We were able to while away the hours, which included starting the day with coffee on the patio, riding the paddle boat, watching the turtles and swans on the lake and grilling outdoors, to name a few. Hubby even lost count of how many fish he caught! Theresa was right next door to answer any questions we had, and provided great recommendations on things to do in the area. Highly recommend!!!
