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!
