Kara, we would love to have you come back to Nocs Landing. This is the place to go to totally disconnect. There is no WIFI or satellite TV to distract you, and the cottage is situated on 5 acres on the west side of the Stonington Peninsula in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. This is a dated, rustic but quaint cottage.
