This is the nicest of the many houses we have rented over the years. It is simply but beautifully decorated - even the art was nice (that has to be a rental first). The house reflects the warmth and gracious hospitality of its owner, and we felt like welcome houseguests. Blue Cottage is clean and perfectly supplied with all the...

Great location in a quiet neighborhood a short walk from Lake Michigan. The house itself is nicely decorated and is full of items that Rickie was very thoughtful to have in the house for us! We had four households from our family staying in the blue cottage and didn't feel like we were on top of one another! The firepit...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage sits on land that has a platted deed dated from the late 1880s and sits in the center of historic Lakeside, a beach community that dates back over one hundred years as a summer destination along Lake Michigan. There is a sense of being in touch with nature as you meander down paths lined by decades old pine trees with the roar of the lake on a blustery day in your ears. It is not uncommon to sight deer in the ravines and bluejays and cardinals perched in the trees. A highlight of the day is watching the breathtaking sunset over the lake with the orangery afterglow lighting up the sky. The cottage offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and allows one to take a deep breath and step back if only for a short respite.
For those guests who like to mix it up, t...
