Little Lake Cottage in Gwinn Gwinn
LAKEFRONT (Little Lake)
*KAYAK and ROWBOAT INCLUDED
*PRIVATE BOAT DOCK
*PETS ARE WELCOMED
*SWIMMING ON PROPERTY
This charming cottage was built by a wonderful family to create place for retreat, and bring about a sense of peace to all who visit. It hasn't changed much over the years, yet it is still a nice place for a family to enjoy their time together. No cable TV, no local channels, yet we do have WiFi and a DVD player. Enjoy the quiet surroundings as you are surrounded by woods, while perched next to the Little Lake waters. Trees surround 3 sides of the cottage, creating a very private buffer from the other cottages around the lake. Simplicity is key here. Enjoy the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with many of the comforts from home. The dishwasher and washer/dryer are wonderful, often unexpected treats in a cottage. Although rarely needed in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, we do not currently have air conditioning at the Little Lake Cottage, though we do have baseboard heat for those chilly spring and fall evenings. Generally, leaving the windows open to the cool lake breeze provides the comfort guests need, with the help of fans moving around air on the few days where the heat is uncomfortable.
Enjoy the inside fireplace on chilly evenings, and the outside fire pit on fun summer nights. We've had many talk about the fun they had swimming and the great fishing, from Perch to Walleye.
Expect to create many fun, family memories here at the cottage, while you take time to recharge. We hope you depart with a sense of a renewed spirit.
