About The Owner

We reside in Spread Eagle WI. We live on a chain of inland lakes but we are just crazy about the 'big' water of Lake Michigan. The wildflowers, solitude, and beach walks. Does it get any better? Did we mention the stars? One more perk ...My husband and I own an AVEDA day spa. Needless to say the cottage and sauna are well stocked with skin care, body care and hair care products. Great for a 'girls week-end' or a much needed personal retreat or a couples get away. Any questions or if you not seeing the dates you are looking for please email.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Manistique

R&R peace and quiet. The sounds of nature. The trance of the waves. If you need a little shade we have a hammock hanging under the cedar trees canopy. Another great place to rest or read a book is the beach/screen house. Or if you're part cat you might want to relax in the sunshine on a down filled comforter in the sleeping porch. We only have room for small groups. By no means a resort or campground.

What makes this house unique

Wake up and have a beach day! We have a gas grill on the patio and a charcoal grill on the beach. Stroll the miles of beach and collect driftwood, fly a kite, watch for wildlife, chase the gulls or marvel at the eagles soaring. When you've had enough take a nice nap in the screen house. Enjoy the quietness.

Beautiful home with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful trip through the U.P. Casa du Marc was our first stop and we really enjoyed this cottage! The photos do not do it justice! The views are spectacular. You feel like you have your own private beach for miles. The wood fired sauna was completely set up and ready to light. We enjoyed the beautiful patio with comfortable reclining chairs and grilled a delicious piece of local whitefish for dinner one evening on the BBQ grill. The entire cottage was spotless, the beds were very comfortable - made up with double sets of European duvets and high quality sheets, the bathroom was very clean, well stocked with fresh towels and the owners invite you to use their selection of Aveda body scrubs in the sauna. We enjoyed exploring Kitch-iti-kipi and Fayette Historic Park. Nearby Jack's grocery store had a great selection - their hot handmade pasties are very good! We saw a lot of wildlife while we were there; 4 sandhills cranes, 3 bald eagles fishing on the beach, a coyote on a drive not far from the cottage and a beautiful fawn also stood up in the brush between the cottage and the beachfront one night while we were making a fire on the deck. The owners are so gracious and kind, they left a lot of information for renters and were very easy to work with. I have already recommended this rental to all my friends and family! I wish them much success. Thanks again for the wonderful stay!

Perfect Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa de Marc Marc Getaway. The location of the cottage is off the beaten path, which provided a peaceful and nature-filled setting. The local grocery story (Jack's) was a short drive away, so once we had our supplies we loved fixing breakfasts and dinners at home so we could soak up the beach views and relax. The house was equipped with everything we needed and communication with the owner was excellent. Internet and cell service was sketchy, but we managed to survive - lol! Although there was a TV with tons of channels, we could not find a local weather channel and the weather monitor on the buffet always indicated rain, even on sunny days - a mild inconvenience for planning daily activities. We found a lot to do in the area and did day trips to Fayette and Palms Book State Parks and Pictured Rocks. We would highly recommend this property, and hope that maybe we will stay again in the future.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

It was the best vacation ever! We played in the water and walked on the beach! Didn’t get out of our bathing suits for days! Great set up! Clean. Comfortable. Made a couple fantastic meals and ate out in town. Cooked out on the grill. Fell asleep to the sound of the waves on the beach floating through the open windows! Woke up and read a book on the couch facing the big lake one morning. The next we took our coffe down to the beach... heavenly! Can’t say enough how relaxing and enjoyable it was. Can’t believe how easy and laid back the whole process was. Just everything was lovely. Having a dishwasher was great. This spot is what Pure Michigan is all about! We saw Bald Eagles fishing and saw and heard Loons calling to each other. Wow! Highly recommend this place! Thank you Casa de Marc Marc!

Detailed and wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The place was most excellent. The house has so many old pieces but is super modern at the same time. The beds were the best and I slept better than ever. Also, all the windows make the place extra special and inviting. I would most definitely stay again but would hope for bit better weather because although we strolled the beach we did not get to swim. I am sure, like Ohio, the weather is a toss up! Great place!!

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

Nicely decorated. Comfortable. Loved being able to see the water from the living area. Great beach. It being October, I didn't go in the water, but it looked nice. Nice deck and appreciated the fireplace. Did not use the sauna, so can't evaluate. Adequate parking.

Heating and plumbing systems were all fine. Would have liked a little hotter water. FYI, One thing: access to the bathroom and the rest of the house from the sunporch bedroom was through the main bedroom. The sunporch has its own access door, so the members of our party sleeping in the sunporch went outside to avoid going through the main bedroom, which was not a big deal for us, but depends on the person and the weather if it is an issue for anyone else.

If you are looking to disconnect from technology this is the place. No wifi and cell phone data service did not work well in this location. Sometimes it worked better while on the beach. I think cell calls would go thru, but not always texts. Land line available for emergency.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa De Marc was a wonderful cottage. It was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. We loved the sauna. The beach was beautiful with amazing sunsets. There were plenty of places to visit near by. Kitch-iti-kipi, the largest natural spring is a must see. We would stay here again and defiantly recommend this property! Thank you!
