Why Jenifer Cartland chose Southwest Michigan

In Kindergarten, we were asked to draw a picture of our favorite places in the world. I drew the swing set at my grandparents' cottage in northern Michigan. I still have that picture. Whenever we are at our little cottage in Stevensville, I am transported right back there to my grandparents' cottage . . . and only 90 miles from home.

What makes this cottage unique

We love hiking at Grand Mere all year round. In the winter, the sledding is fantastic. In the summer, the beaches are so clean and beautiful (and never crowded).

Quaint little place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and plenty of space in this cute little cottage. However, when we arrived it seemed as though no one came in after the previous renters left. The bathroom garbage was not emptied and there were no kitchen garbage bags stocked. There were was a load of wet towels in the wash machine and the beds were not made. Overall, it was a great place. The firepit was a nice feature and very close to the lake!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. We love spending time there but when we can't we are happy that our guests can enjoy it. We are also very embarrassed by the conditions when you arrived. We are working with our caretaker to make sure this doesn't happen again and we appreciate you letting us know.

Cozy and charming, needs a few updates

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the location. The property is secluded and has a nice yard and space for kids to play. My kids loved the swing set and we really enjoyed the fire pit. The cottage could use a good update and cleaning. It was a little hot in the bedrooms. Overall great experience though.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, amenities, and property! Quaint and rustic--comfortable for me, my husband and our 3 boys (6,4,2). Small AC unit and TV did the trick! Extremely private yet easy to access. Nothing fancy, which is exactly what we wanted for beach day trips, naps and cook outs!

Great cottage with great access to many awesome places.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We we're out enjoying the area attractions during the day and loved the quiet cottage in the evenings. The cottage has beach access just down the road and was located near many wineries in the area. We has a very nice trip and hope to be back soon. Thanks Jim and Betsy.
