The beach which is steps away is a great place to relax by the bay. There is a beach pavilion with picnic tables and grills. The beach has it's own beach chairs.
This cottage on the bay was perfect for our family of 5 - three kids in their late 20s ! It is well situated between downtown Petoskey and quaint Harbor Springs, which made for wonderful sightseeing and time spent milling around each historic downtown. The cottage location was private with good access for morning walks. Views from the west-facing bedrooms were gorgeous, looking right out onto the bay! We spent many evenings on the front porch watching the sunsets and waves.
Being steps away from the beach was ideal since we spent many hours spent in the water swimming and paddle boarding. The beach was in great shape - chair provided, picnic tables, sandy without debris or stones, and access to a fire pit. We made the most of the beach and convenient amenities!
Our family of 5 (with three 31-and-under sons) just spent one of our best family vacations ever at "Clearview Cottage". From the authentic knotty pine to the bright, clean sunroom with tv an internet, to the newer master suite, everything was inviting and warm. All the rooms on the lakeside had fabulous views and the clean, wide beach was just steps away down a quaint wildflower path. The bathrooms were sufficient for us and well-maintained. The owners were delightful and helpful. We hated to leave and hope to come back next year!!
The best experience I have ever had for a family vacation. The owners were more than accommodating in our personal time of need and provided us with such a memorable experience that we would not hesitate to come back. The cottage is just as advertised and provides the renter with virtually all intangible items you would not normally think of. The views of Little Traverse Bay is never boring. The water temperature was surprisingly warm to swim in without Sharks, Salt, or Jellyfish. This was "pure Michigan" at its best. We chose an activity and destination everyday. Bike riding, swimming, Golfing, tennis, and driving through the Tunnel of Trees. Variable array of great restaurants with-in 15 minute drive if you choose to go out. The pavilion on the beach is clean, large, and very well positioned. Fantastic shopping in Petoskey, Harbor Springs, and Charlevoix were also attractive. At the end of the day, watching the beautiful sunset from the beach was different everyday. Social time with beach guests was also easy in a family-oriented fashion with the Menonaqua Association. I highly recommend this owner and cottage!
Our family of five was lucky to stay here at quiet Menonaqua beach and won't forget it. I didn't see any other homes that had this direct beach access - heaven. The beach is clean and the Lake Mich water is clear and clean. A little inlet is perfect for kids to play in (or keep beverages cold!). The cottage has all the mod amenities we needed, with plenty of sitting rooms for different activities: reading, catching a ball game on TV (if you can peel your eyes away from the view of Little Traverse Bay), games. The two full bathrooms and powder room are fresh and clean. The cottage was immaculate, actually. It's the nicest combo of lake cottage charm (original bright wood) and contemporary comforts (strong shower power and WiFi). Beautiful bike to Harbor Springs. Great wine shop, deli, bakery, brew pub, family restaurant an easy 15 min bike/5 min drive. We'll be back!!! The question is, do we share this secret? YES!
