What we Provide

We provide the cottage, linens and towels and ask only that you do a light cleaning prior to your departure that includes depositing any trash that has been generated in the bins provided.

Access to the Beach

We provide a beach permit to Cherry Beach and to all the Chikaming township beaches.  You need to display this permit on your windshield in order to park at the beach. 

Outdoor Activities

There is a gas grill and a charcoal grill provided, plus bicycles of various sizes are available at the cottage.  We have outdoor table and chairs, croquet set, and volleyball available. 


We’re sorry but we don’t allow pets—several members of our family have serious allergies.  Please don’t bring them!  We strongly prefer that no smoking take place around the cottage as smokers often consider the surrounding bushes and plantings as places to stash their butts.  Such behavior detracts from the overall experience of others so please—no smoking on the property.  Children are allowed, but the cottage is not set up for toddlers or babies and is not kid proof.  We prefer all children to be over 6.  Furthermore we are not far from railroad tracks and if you bring a child you must fully supervise them when outdoors. Trains are infrequent but they are a reality.  Too, because we are close to the woods, you may also encounter poison ivy so keep an eye on the younger ones at all times.
