The cottage is lovely almost beyond description. It is a vintage 2-bedroom bungalow that has been fully remodeled with an eye towards respecting the past. There is a wonderful porch across the entire front of the house (with a porch swing, of course.) The house is air-conditioned, making it perfect for hot Summer days. There is a small TV with VHS/DVD player but NO telephone (so you might want to bring your cell if you absolutely MUST maintain contact with the outside world). The cottage is professionally decorated and fully furnished with bedding and a fully stocked kitchen. You don't need to bring much except yourselves. It is within walking distance of good restaurants, shopping, and Lake Michigan.
