great location
A great location for your personal peace of mind. Located in an area where you can travel some of the area beautiful sites in 30 minutes to 2 hours. It's a very roomy cozy and comfortable cottage with just about everything you need. You'll never see a better place for beautiful sunset on a lake.



Michael, summertime sunsets over the water simply can not be beat.  We're so glad to hear that you had a great stay, and we hope that you come back again.

Great Place! Great Views!
This was a fabulous spacious cabin right on Indian Lake. It was a sister bonding vacation for us, and we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets over the lake and the bonfires by the water. The cabin was clean. We also got to enjoy the beautiful brand new deck, and the owner even had a brand new carpet delivered for the deck during our stay. It was sufficiently stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely go back.

Laura, sisters vacationing together - what a great thing to do.  We're glad that you could enjoy the sunsets, the bonfires and the new dock!  We look forward to your return.

lakefront property
Place was clean and conveniently located. Well equipped kitchen. Beautiful view from the back picture windows of the lake and a nice fire pit and lawn furniture. Only thing I didn't like was the deer head!



Brenda, we're so glad that you enjoyed staying at Oak Bluff Cottage.  Summer on the lake is simply the best, and we hope that you come again.

Nice Remote Cottage
Very nice cottage on Indian Lake in Michigan. Bed and bedding were comfortable. We really liked the very large family room facing the lake. Could use another fan for warm weather. We had all the kitchen items we needed to cook meals, and paper products were supplied. We appreciated it that one cabinet was left empty to put our supplies in to free up counter space. This was a remote location, but town was only 5-10 minutes away. The stairs down to the dock were wide and very stable with hand rails. Only concern would be the very limited parking, but the listing does say only one car.

Deb, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Oak Bluff Cottage.  There is  nothing better than overlooking Lake Michigan!  We will let the owner know your suggestion for another fan.  We hope to see you again!
