Cozy cottage

This cottage on a canal was very clean and comfortable. Had all the amenities we needed to have a pleasant stay. The one thing it did NOT have was cable tv hookup which I failed to see in the description. My mistake. My sisters and I enjoyed our stay!

Stephanie Moyes

Highly recommended!

This cottage is the perfect place to get away, relax, have fun, and make memories that will last a lifetime! Our family has three children from 3-10 years old and they each had so much fun! Boating, swimming, fishing, going on the paddle boat, watching movies on the couch, visiting Funland (go-karts, kid rides, arcade), taking in a movie at the Pines Theatre, shopping, mini-golfing, biking, riding the scooter, cooling off with some ice cream...wow we did a lot! Fireworks lit up the night sky and were a pleasure to watch during our sunset boat cruise each night we were there! The cottage left a lot of space for the kids to have their places to play and for the grown-ups to enjoy some quiet time too! The cottage is on a quiet road that is perfect for the kids to bike, scooter, roller blade, or play road hockey. The lake was so warm and a great way to spend the summer days...remember to use a lot of sunscreen!!! The sandbar was perfect since it provided a lot of fun for the kids to run and play and throw a ball. The middle of the lake was warm enough and a lot of fun for jumping off the boat. Even the radio station (97.5 KLT) provided a great mix of music for all of us to enjoy! Our family would highly recommend visiting this cottage, touring the channels, enjoying the lake, reconnecting with your family, and enjoying all that the area has to offer.

Special Gathering

Our stay on Ottawa Lane was perfect! The ease of renting was great. We gathered my husband's siblings for the whole week from several states. It was a special time for them, as they've not done this before. The owners were very fast to respond to questions and welcomed them. They were gracious with their lake home, and we will be sure to stay with them again.

Great Set-Up for Small Group

The property is located directly on the series of canals of Houghton Lake. Great fishing directly off the dock; enjoyed use of paddleboat. Property owner was fantastic with which to deal. Enjoyed both the deck and the sun room, which had floor-to-ceiling sliding doors with screens on three sides. Nice size dining room and kitchen. We had three adults staying in the rental, which worked out great. If had 5-8 adults in the group, not sure if would select. Sleeping arrangements favor larger numbrs of people if some (or most) are kids with some adults. Air conditioning unit is in living room and cooled common areas nicely. To really cool the bedrooms, you need strategic fan placement and open bedroom doors. Temperature should be fine, unless you are present in the heat of the summer and have members of your party that need cool temps to sleep. Great selection of games and DVDs at guests' disposal; limited selection of books. Good internet connection on my Blackberry (Verizon), but friends with iPhones with 3G / Edge network complained about connection and had problems sending texts or e-mails with photo attachments. Super close to Walmart for groceries / supplies (

Great getaway

We recently stayed here with 4 other couples. Lots of room for everyone. Great location, lots to do, fishing, relaxing, boating, shopping. Everything we needed was supplied. Truly a great cottage experience.

An Ideal Getaway

Absolutely wonderful cottage! Spacious and clean with all the amenities. The best part is the location on the canal....you can sit and relax in the morning with your cup of coffee or at night by the fire with a glass of wine watching the boats pass. We will definitely be back!

Very nice and comfortable.

We had a wonderful time in this cottage. We loved the sunroom and watching the ducks. It's nice that they allowed pets, too so our happy family could stay together. Carl and Janice are quick in responses and very attentive to the renters' needs. A +++ We plan on returning next year. Thank you.

Solid place for the price

Great location -- cottage was on a canal, but very close to lake. The major sandbar where most of the people congregate on the lake is just around the bend - perfect for any watercraft. The owners were very helpful and responsive.

Great little hideaway

Lovely get away on the channel..close to everything, shopping and great restaurants...easy access to Houghton Lake by way of the canal. Wish there had been cable for wireless..would have been more convenient to use computer/iPad in front of the fire or on the waterfront.

What a Nice Place to Be

We spent a weekend at this cottage. It is surprisingly spacious, and had pretty much all of the amenities of home, with plenty of room for our son to play (indoors and out). We enjoyed local outdoor activities, and when it got a bit too chilly we watched movies on the big screen HDTV! Lots of good restaurants in the area as well. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.
