When coming for a stay at this cottage, all you need is a change of clothes and your bathing suit - everything else, you'll find is already at the home! Upon arrival, drop off your bag, lather on sunscreen, and head out the back door to your private oasis on Emerson Lake.
Swim, fish, sunbathe, and boat with the provided kayaks and paddle boat just feet away from the property! The swim platform offers the perfect place for dive practice while the dock is great for casting your line or tieing off a boat. There's even a beach outfitted with Adirondack chairs and a fire pit where you can end your day on a sweet note with s'mores and stargazing.
Retreat to the well-appointed interior for a reprieve! Inside, you'll find all of the comforts of home, plus the amenities you desire. Slip into a catnap in the cozy living room complete with flat-screen TV with DVD player and wood-burning fireplace. Wake up to the smell of barbecue wafting in from the porch, where the chef of the group is cooking up dinner's entree on the gas grill.
Easily prepare complementing dishes in the well-equipped kitchen, boasting essential appliances and cookware. Savor the meal inside around the 4-person dining table or feast alfresco on the furnished patio. After the meal, enjoy a cleansing shower in the en-suite bathroom before crawling into bed. Sleep soundly in the full bed, while additional guests and children find comfortable accommodations upstairs in the loft complete with a full-sized bed, 2 twin-over-twin bunk beds, and 2 twin mattresses.
Nestled in the Huron-Manistee National Forest, this quaint cottage provides a true northern Michigan getaway where adventure and attractions are never far away!
When you're not taking advantage of the home's location on Emerson Lake, take to the west, by 35 minutes, to discover the beauty of Ludington State Park Beach located on Lake Michigan. In addition to beach activities, you'll find hiking, fishing, and free performances at the park's Amphitheater. The fun doesn't stop when winter creeps in. Enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing once the landscape is covered in a pristine white blanket of snow!
Much closer, you'll find the Pere Marquette River also great for swimming, boating, and fishing. But if you grow tired of the water, take a hiatus with a long hike through the national forest that surrounds the property. Within an hour's drive, discover several scenic trails including Birch Grove Trailhead, Loda Lake Wildflower Sanctuary, and many more. Additionally, there are several golf courses in the area, like Marquette Trails Golf Course and Lakeside Links, that offer challenging games within the serene setting of the forest.
Come dinnertime, refuel with a hearty meal at restaurants found in Ludington, or travel east bites at one of Baldwin's establishments. You can even kayak or paddleboat across the lake to the new Emerson Lake Inn for a comforting meal close to home. Pentwater also offers numerous dining options and is only 35 minutes from the cottage!
