Owner purchased this cottage in 2015
Why Owner chose Bay City
The driving purpose behind Wenona Cottage is to eventually provide easily accessible accommodations for Tim's ageing parents, then, as time moves along, for ourselves. After purchasing the house we spent a little more than 2 years bringing it up to where it is today. We cleared and landscaped the yard, upgraded the exterior, reconfigured the interior flow and use, remodeled, insulated, upgraded utilities, furnished and decorated.
What makes this cottage unique
Wenona Cottage has woods next to and behind it, making it fairly secluded and quiet. Our home is next door, so were easily accessible. Across the street is a bait shop/convenience/liquor store. A few steps further is the Bay View Bar with a pretty good menu, fair prices and entertainment on weekends. For fishermen, the Saginaw Bay is a few steps further from the cottage, and the DNR boat launch just 1-1/2 miles to the east on the Saginaw River access to the Bay. The cottage is 3 miles from Walmart, about 5 miles from the downtown business districts and about 20 minutes from world famous Frankenmuth, 30 minutes from Midland's beautiful Dow Gardens, 45 minutes from the Birch Run Outlets.
