Description of the Manistee vacation cottage rental
Our Lake Michigan Front Cottage sits atop a low, sandy, bluff about 10ft high on a beautiful Lake Michigan beach. Just enough elevation for a simply spectacular view. The cottage has a big deck with an unbelivable vista, so close to Lake Michigan you'll fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Watch the sunset from the deck, from the sandy beach, or from the master bedroom balcony. Just to the north is a protected conservancy area, never to be developed. Walk for miles along unspoiled beach.

The cottage is a bungalow with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The Lake Front cottage has a shower over the bathtub in the main bathroom.

Great golf is all around us, but we are only two miles from Arcadia Bluffs - Michigan's highest rated public golf course, and one of the top rated courses in America. Located on bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan, if you are golfer, you know, and dream of playing this course.

Area Information
What can we do? Here's just a few ideas....wineries, the Little River Casino in Manistee, the Platte Fish Hatchery. Canoe the Platte or Betsie River. Fish them. Lake Michigan, too. There are fishing charters available in Arcadia or Frankfort. Horseback ride. Hike in the park or walk through the Michgan Legacy Art park at Crystal Mountain. Check out the Cherry Hut in Beulah, or catch a drive-in movie. Eat dinner in Onekema or shop at a roadside stand. Marvel at the Victorian Lumber Baron homes in Manistee. Surf the Mystery Hill. Hang glide!

More? Visit Glen Arbor,Empire, and Leelanau County!

For our guests that golf, we are within 30 minutes drive of 10 golf courses, including the renowned Arcadia Bluffs, just two minutes south. (Don't golf? Try dinner in the clubhouse!)

The Park: Sleeping Bears National Lake Shore - natural beauty and history combined.

The colossal park perpetually preserves a large geographic area encompassing about 35 miles of the Lake Michigan coastline. It has many unique points-of-interest, including the two large islands, North and South Manitou . They are accessible by ferry boat departing from the Leland for day trips or overnight camping.

The park was chartered on October 21, 1970 by the US Congress, primarily to preserve its unique and outstanding natural features, including forests, beaches, dune formations, and "ancient glacial phenomena" (...I hope I recognize that "ancient glacial phenomena" thingy when I see it). The iconic "dune climb" area is widely recognized by most of Michigan's residents. You can let the kids burn off energy conquering the dune. If you can imagine a sand box the size of a ski hill, you sorta get the idea. Essentially, you climb up so that you can run back down. It's really great fun (and exercise), especially the kids. They really love it, and what's not to love about sand wedged in every crevice of your body? Of course, the kids don't seem to mind, in fact they absolutely love it! After all, what's the point of vacation? Photos of the climb have been featured in lots of places like post cards or the cover of many State publications like maps and whatnot.

The national lakeshore also contains many cultural features. The 1871 South Manitou Island Lighthouse, three former Life-Saving Service (Coast Guard) Stations and an extensive rural historic farm district are some of the highlights. Various trails are also woven throughout area of the park. Trails are numbered, marked and maps are available.

The park is named after the Chippewa Indian legend of the Sleeping Bear.
