Very Private Lake Michigan Cottage

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Saint Ignace, Mackinac County, Upper Peninsula, Michigan
This lovely home is RIGHT on Lake Michigan with a large front deck looking out toward St. Helena Island. The shallow, rocky shore is a big draw for shore birds. Eagles, herons, pipers, swans, cranes and a variety of ducks are common. Enjoy an attached garage, full kitchen, laundry, outdoor grill and fire pit. Direct TV is provided but not internet. Both bedrooms have lots of storage and full-size beds. Weekly summer rentals are offered with check in/out on Saturday only. There is a 4-night minimum in the summer. The cleaning fee is $100. Dogs are welcome for an additional $30.00 pet fee. Though located just off US2, 8 miles west of St. Ignace, we are at the end of a long, black-top drive so away from traffic. The property includes a larger home to the east, but the properties are not visible to one another. There is a channel... Read more

About the neighbourhood
This is a very private location with no neighbors visible or even likely around. The long, black-top drive off highway 2 buffers any noise from cars. Sounds of nature will surround you! We are RIGHT on the Lake Michigan Shore, 8 miles west of St. Ignace, Michigan. I do not have a boat for use, but there is a channel where you could launch and keep a boat or jet ski. Enjoy views of St. Helena Island and passing freighters. Relax on the full size deck and watch the sunset. This 2-bedroom home has a large living area as it originally had 3 bedroom. The shore is rocky but there are miles of sand beach and dunes a couple miles to the west. I have an info sheet on area attractions I can email. There is a lovely golf course in town and Kewadin Casino as well. The many area interests inc... more
