If a fabulous lake view with sand for kids to play along the water (Chain Lake) is at the top of your list, then you are in luck!   The Lucky Loon Cottage permeates a feeling of nostalgia for native Michiganders like ourselves and brings you back to your grandparent's cottage along a Northern Michigan lake.  Cabin boasts a rustic charm and is ideal for most guests.  You can feel the history and embrace the possibilities here at Lucky Loon.

You can welcome family fun with sand, kayaks, a canoe, and a row boat. Even your family pet is welcome here, though we do not have a fenced yard.  The new stove/oven and refrigerator make it convenient to cook your meals together, plus sit at the retro kitchen table on the dining side of the living room. The living room and kitchen together provide a true open concept in the small space. You can watch TV, prepare dinner, or kick your feet up, all within easy sight and distance. All while looking out at Chain Lake.

Knotty pine surrounds you at the cozy Lucky Loon Cottage.  Enjoy your Queen bed in one bedroom. The kids will love the bunk bed (twin over double) in their own room too. This unassuming lakefront cottage along Chain Lake is sure to melt your heart and give you the space to soak in time together.

...And if you are lucky, you will hear the loons calling for their mate in the spring, or yodeling at night, as you cook your s'mores around the campfire.

Beautiful and relaxing lakefront vacation
This was the perfect getaway, the lake was so beautiful,we enjoyed all of the included amenities, the fishing was great, the water was clear and not too cold for swimming. The cottage had all the comforts of home. Freshwater and the owner were very friendly and responsive to all of our needs. I would highly recommend staying here, my husband and I will be back. Thank you!
