Serenity Cottage is located in quaint Lakeside, MI. Recently updated in soothing aqua hues and beachy decor, it is a perfect escape from the every day. Start your day with a walk along the serene, wooded roadways in the area. In the afternoon, head to the private association beach (approx. 7 minute walk) for the day. Upon returning, wash the sand and the day away in the outdoor shower and prepare to relax on the wrap around deck, private backyard or screened in porch. As the sun goes down, unwind by the fire in the backyard firepit. Serenity Cottage is the perfect location to explore Harbor Country, with wineries, antique shops, restaurants, farmers markets, breweries and two public beaches, all within a 10 minute drive.

My wife Lori and I, along with my cousin and his wife, purchased Serenity Cottage in 2015 to afford us quality time with our families. Both originally from Chicago, my wife and I now live in St. Joe, MI. Growing up, my cousin John and I were always close and enjoyed traveling together. We've especially come to love the quaint beach towns in Michigan. The recent remodeling was a labor of love for myself and my wife, as we've just become empty nesters. While John and his wife Sylva are still in the hustle and bustle of raising their four busy children. We are happy to have the opportunity to share our place of "serenity" with others.
Brian purchased this Cottage in 2015

Cozy, charming and so very comfortable!
Such a well decorated and well appointed beach cottage! So clean with modern appliances, furnishings, etc. Very charming and hard to leave to explore the area given its cozy and inviting feel. A wonderful way to welcome in 2019!
The cottage was as advertised. Brian and Lori were great communicators and willing to work with us on arrival and departure times (Thanksgiving Holiday) as well as any other concerns we had. The amenities were well thought out and in good working order. It was clean and everything needed was provided. This was our second stay in the cottage and will place it top on our list for future visits to the area. You won’t be sorry staying at this cottage.
Adorable cottage worked perfectly for getaway with friends!
Beautifully decorated, great space and wonderful location, close to a lot of area activities and restaurants. Perfect spot for longtime friends to meet up and enjoy each other’s company while exploring the area. Thank you for a great and memorable place!
Super clean! Loved the beach decor!
We had a great time with our family for a fall getaway weekend! The home was very clean-including the pillows and mattress pads! (noticed that when we stripped the sheets off the beds at the end of the weekend) Very impressed! Everything was nicely re-done and we loved the beach decor. The kitchen was very nice. We appreciated having a washer and dryer accessible. We loved seeing a little bit of wildlife while we were there--a mother deer and fawn hung around for a day or two. We played games and watched a couple movies while we were there. And the beach was a five minute easy walk away. We also went horseback riding and wine tasting. Restaurants we enjoyed in the area: Stray Dog and Redamak. Warren Dunes and New Buffalo Beach were also not far away. Would definitely consider staying here again. Brian was very helpful! If I had one suggestion for future improvement, I would suggest they some day make the large screened in porch an all weather room for year round use. just to give a little extra room during the colder months.
Perfect place to get away!
Everything was picture perfect. The location is great and we loved the access to the private beach. We hope to come back again soon!
So cute and comfortable.
Three friends enjoyed this darling cottage for a girls weekend. Looks just like the pictures and is very clean and comfortable. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is because even though we were told by the owner to contact him if we had any questions, we got no response to a phone call asking about where to find coffee filters...an item we expected to find in this otherwise well-stacked cottage. The entire weekend went by with no contact from the owner. We bought our own coffee filters the next day, but if there had not been a Keurig and a few pods in addition to the regular coffee maker, we wouldn’t have been able to make coffee our first morning there. All things considered, coffee filters are not that big of a deal, but the lack of response was very disappointing.
