Overview

About the property

Come, relax, and enjoy the peacefullness

Our cozy cottage is recently renovated with all new hardwood flooring, new kitchen cabinets, counters, sink and fixtures. All interior and exterior paint is new within the last 2 years. No pets and not smoking, so it remains clean and fresh. You will immediately notice the decorating talent in every room of the house, as well as the flower gardens during the summer months. Best of all it is only steps to the water. This is a non gas motor lake, so it is clean, quiet, and peaceful. Bring your canoes, kayaks, or swim boards. This is one of the cleanest lakes in the state. I have documentation to prove it as the association has it tested on a regular basis by the University of Michigan ecology department. We even have fresh water jelly fish which most people don't believe exist because most lakes are not healthy enough to support them. They are only seen a couple of times a year and do not hamper and of the activity on the lake.

About Bruce Thomas

We met at Northridge church in Plymouth Michigan, blended our two families (5 boys) together and built many good memories at our cottage. Now we live and work in the Detroit Metro area. We still love and use the cottage on a regular basis, and have developed many relationships with people in Pinckney. Now we are sharing our little gem hoping you will enjoy the charm, peace and tranquility of it as much as we do.

Bruce Thomas purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Bruce Thomas chose Southeast Michigan

We originally purchased the cottage because it was an affordable waterfront property at the time. Now we have come to enjoy, love and respect the lake for its peacefulness and cleanliness. Cordley Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in Michigan and one of the only lakes to have fresh water jelly fish.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a non gas motor lake, it is quiet and peaceful but it still gets lot of use from stand up paddle boards, to kyaks, to paddle boats.

Quaint cabbage on quiet clean lake..

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed water toys during the day and campfires each evening. Nice the homeowners left a large flashlight as outside area was very dark and difficult to navigate. Indoors Nice large kitchen with plenty of room for the family. The small cramped bathroom did pose problems. Overall enjoyed our stay.

We were pleasantly surprised walking in to witness how charming it was.

  • 5 of 5

Not only Charming, but we found it to be very comforting from every aspect, except one,

"No window shades on one LG window that faces the Neighbors two story cottage directly across with lots of windows, as well as two window doors with no shades.. a side from this, we loved the place and will rebook in the near future.. one last oculate for this beautiful place, my wife and I totally appreciated the fact, the owner responded to our calls answering questions we had.. We clearly appreciated the attention of concern.

A vacation with many memories

  • 5 of 5

It's been a week since our Codley Lake vacation and we are still talking about the great time we had at the cottage. This rental was perfect. Perfect location, charmingly decorated, extremely clean and well kept up. The lake itself defines beauty; it was very relaxing sitting on the deck, watching the sky and water change colors. It was everything we had hoped for and then some. In fact, we said that we would go back any day. Actually, we never wanted to leave!!!
