KP Vista Cottage


This roomy cottage makes for a wonderful budget-minded space which overlooks KP Lake.  Just a short drive from Grayling, 4 miles from the North Branch (NB) of the famous Au Sable River, 20 minutes from the main stream. The Au Sable River is known for it's fabulous trout fishing. You can enjoy the view of KP Lake from the fire pit and sitting area on the side of the cottage. You only have neighbors on one side of the cottage, so it is ideal for those who like to relax as a family. On the other side of the cabin is a woodland area; a great place to play hide and seek with the kids. In addition, you can launch your boat just down KP Lake Road. 

When you enter the cottage, you immediately see the convenience of the
main floor washer-dryer.   Then, you are greeted by the open kitchen and bar area.
Downstairs, you will find a comfortable sitting area. Grayling, which is located in Crawford

This is a very nice cabin in the woods. Lots of bed, the yard is nice and open, and the fire pit is nice in the evening. The cabin was clean and well stocked with utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, washer and dryer. We weren’t lacking anything important. Bring your own firewood and starter. There is no Wi-Fi at the cabin and we didn’t have cell reception on either AT&T or T-Mobile so be prepared to be disconnected when you are our there. It’s about a 10-15 minute drive into town, restaurants and grocery stores. Very pretty place and a short walk down to the lake.


Don, we are thrilled that you liked KP Vista Cottage so much.  It is remote and allows you to really disconnect.  So glad that you enjoyed the fire pit!  We hope to see you again.

Very convenient!
The cabin had everything we needed. The only thing we were looking for and couldn’t find was a corkscrew. There was plenty of sleeping space. It was right across the street from the lake. It felt like we were away from it all, but everything was still conveniently close. I forgot my license and debit card at the cabin and the owners are mailing them back to me!! The only thing I would change is to have an additional air conditioner unit in the main bedroom as it was quite uncomfortable sleeping in there during the night. We also lost power during our stay (in the whole area not just our cabin) and I think a generator would’ve been nice to have especially during a heat wave! But all in all we enjoyed our stay!


Hi Rae,  We are so happy that KP Vista Cottage worked out do well for you.  We're especially  happy to have found your debit card and license!  Thank for your good suggestions.  I know that this exceptionally hot week has been tough on many cottagers.  We look forward to seeing you again.

KP Vista. near Lovells
Enjoyed the cabin very much---the cabin was immaculate ! Very relaxing way to spend the week...central to the North Branch, Lovells and most of the things and places we like... The only suggestion I would make--is that the owner install Direct TV and Wi-Fi ... the off air TV channel reception was poor..and channels were very limited. I would rate this at 4-4.5 stars and would definitely stay there again.

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your suggestion about Direct TV. We will pass that along to the owners for consideration. Please check out our 54 other properties next time you choose your Michigan adventure!
