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 Pinckney

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.

Adorable and spacious cottage

  • 5 of 5

Great view of the lake. The cottage is beautifully furnished with comfortable furniture. Deceptively large with a great kitchen. Bruce was great to deal with. Convenient distance to Ann Arbor.

Cottage in April

  • 5 of 5

While we did not book this cottage to use the lake, we thoroughly enjoyed seeing it every day. There is a spacious dining table by the window overlooking the lake, and so, while it was too cold to sit outside, we still enjoyed the view.

The cottage was very convenient to Pinckney and Brighton which was our destination. It was very comfortable for the two of us, and spacious enough to relax in the morning and evening after our obligations in the area. The internet and cell service worked well.

My family and I enjoyed our Thanksgiving celebration at this beautiful, welcoming, lake cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect! The cottage was clean, cozy, and even came with a beautiful sunset for the perfect finale to our autumn family gathering.

Everything we needed was right there. Bruce was very helpful with his communications, so I felt like I knew just what to expect and what to do to be a good guest!

Being there at the cottage made me want to move back out there... Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!
