Darling peaceful cottage on a Chain of 8 Lakes. Beautiful Hill views out over The University of Michigan Sailing Club. In season enjoy fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, cross country skiing and snow shoes. Indoor fireplace and outdoor BBQ and fire pit.
This cozy cottage is on Baseline Lake on the Portage Chain of Lakes. The view is amazing and peaceful. The cottage is listed as a two bedroom but one is really just an extra queen size sleeping place in the laundry room which is quite nice. Guided boat or kayak tours, water skiing, wake boarding, tubing and fishing charters are available on request with our Captain for an additional fee.
We are so close to the City but so far away! The lakeview is amazing and there are so many places to walk and enjoy the mature trees and nature. The house is small but super cozy with a wonderful Michigan cottage feel.
  • Such a great host & shown so much kindness. I booked last minute & it wasn’t a problem at all, I enjoyed myself greatly. The view was so beautiful. Definitely want to come see during another season :)

  • Beautiful, magical, and charming. Loved the views of the lake and listening to the sandhill cranes call across the ice at dusk was just perfect.

    Jesika2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic little place. It's the kind of location that would be great in any season. The lake was beautiful in the winter. It reminded me of visiting my aunt's place in the U.P.

    Brian2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Debs place is the absolute best!! Such a relaxing spot in the winter and I can’t imagine the fun in the summer months. Super accommodating and the perfect feel for a weekend getaway.

    Emily2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Debi’s place is so relaxing and cozy! The wildlife is wonderful to watch with the fire going. It is a cozy and quite lovely space to unwind and leave the world behind for sometime! Will definitely be back again!

    We offer a beautiful & relaxing setting. We think you will fall in love with our Cute Studio Cottage that overlooks private woods. We are situated on the Dam peaceful bay of Hi-land Lake connected to Halfmoon Lake chain of 8 lakes. Perfect place to get away and start exploring the beautiful Pinckney Recreation Area and Potawatomi Trails surrounding us. Great area to mountain bike, hike, swim, SUP, kayak, & fishing. Includes use of pedal boat. No pets, out of respect to those with allergies.
    More photos to be published by June 22. Your private main entrance to this stand alone cottage is up 3 steps, although there is a second entrance without steps through a 32” wide door that will accommodate a smaller wheelchair. Walk out onto your private deck and you’re surrounded by woods. We have seen fox and deer from the deck. Inside, you'll see the place is beautiful! There is beautiful Pine in the ceiling and wall accents , Hickory kitchen cabinets, and dark hardwood floors completing the cottage feel. Through the entry vestibule, your cottage has an open floor plan, so the kitchen, dining, living, and sleeping space is all one. The open living space has a lovely kitchen with 5 burner stove and oven, microwave, refrigerator with freezer, and dishwasher. Everything is like new! There is a high top dining table with stools, and living room area. The living room area’s sliding glass doors lead to your private deck overlooking the woods. The open living space has a lovely kitchen with 5 burner gas stove and oven, microwave, apartment size refrigerator with freezer, deep sink, and dishwasher. Everything is like new! The kitchen is stocked with cooking pots and pans, utensils, silverware, plates, glasses, and basic spices. The living room area has a comfortable futon couch that folds down into a high quality queen size 9” thick futon bed. I have an identical futon in my guest bedroom and everyone loves sleeping on it. There are also 2 deck chairs, and a 43" flat screen television. Enjoy the view of the woods from the living room area through the sliding glass door or open door to enjoy the relaxing sounds, smells, and beauty of our tranquil property. To the right from the living room area is the bathroom with sink vanity, a spacious shower with sliding glass doors, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, towels, and of course a toilet. The entire cottage is decorated with beautiful photography from the area and around the world by photographer Victor Banta. Out the main entrance, you can walk down the hill to the lake with a dock. One of the best swimming spots on the lake, is out front off the end of our dock in the peaceful bay. There is WiFi in all areas inside and out. There is a diversity of wildlife on the wooded 3 acre property. Seen on this secluded lakefront property: Fox family, deer, racoon, Great Blue Heron, Mute Swan, Canadian Geese, ducks, many birds and more. Perfect for nature lovers, birders, outside activity lovers, and travelers. This is also a wonderful lake chain for boating. Great for watersports including kayak, SUP, swimming, rowing, water skiing, wakeboarding... The nearby Potawatomi Trail system (one of the Top 10 mountain bike trails in the U.S.) is great for Biking and Hiking. In the snowy season (December to March) the area becomes a Winter Wonderland, and is great for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Currently, we are limiting this location to 2 people. But, if a Queen size Air Bed for an additional 2 people is of interest to you, then we would love to hear from you. This is a quiet relaxing location, NOT a party destination. Please respect the folks in the main house, as they will you. No smoking of anything inside. Please smoke or vape on the outside deck.
    The neighborhood is safe, quiet, and friendly. Our house is close enough to walk to downtown Hell.
  • We had a great stay at Victor‘s place. Since we visited relatives and spent most of the time away we basically only slept there. However, it was super cozy and warm to come home to. The area is beautiful and we will definitely return some time in summer. Victor is a great host, kind, helpful and absolutely reliable! We had a great time!!

    Dania2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Victor’s place was so beautiful and cozy! There’s tons of outdoor activities in Pickney and Hell—perfect place for a getaway.

  • We had a very nice stay in Hell MI. We were visiting our daughter in Ann Arbor. The trip to UM is about 40 minutes. The drive is very pleasant and goes by quickly. The place would also be great for a lake side vacation. The space is extremely pleasant. It is configured as an efficiency apartment, but still quite roomy. The owner is an artist, a fact which is apparent in the decoration choices. We found ourselves admiring the pictures on the walls and the choice of colors and materials. The setting is quite lovely, set back in the woods in a cluster of other homes. The back porch overlooks forest and water. And the space is very quiet. We never heard a sound from any of the neighbors. The kitchen is fully appointed and some staples are provided, such as coffee, sugar, eggs, juice, snacks, etc. and the bathroom has some emergency supplies such as tooth paste. Overall, this was one of our best ABnB experiences.

    Drusilla2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • We traveled to Hell for the Dances with Dirt 50-mile race, and stayed at Victor's place. He met us right on time with a hearty "Welcome to Hell" (if I lived here, I would never get tired of saying that to visitors)! It was a very cute cabin, at the end of a quiet road. Victor had a little welcome package of crackers, eggs, Michigan apples, and other goodies available for us, and he warmly gave us a tour of the property. I didn't know at the time how close we were to the start/finish line of the race, but it was less than 5 minutes away! Most of the hotels that the race website linked to were 40-45 minutes away, so this was an incredible location. I can't stress how perfect it was to be so close to the race: it allowed me to sleep in a little bit more in the morning and after the race, when I was totally worn out, it was but a quick trip back for me to shower and lie down. There was a Lay-Z-Boy in the living room, which was CRUCIAL! I have never enjoyed sitting as much as I enjoyed sitting in that Lay-Z-Boy after the race. I put my feet up as my girlfriend drove into Pinckney to get us some take-out, and remained there for the remainder of the evening, eating pizza, drinking beer and relaxing. It was perfect. Thank you Victor!

  • Great little studio style space (no pun intended). Nicely situated on the lake.

    Brian2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, beautiful wooded setting only a short walk to the lake. We loved morning coffee on the private deck and the cottage was furnished with every amenity we could have needed. Very clean, well-appointed, and hosts even provided plenty of snacks and a complimentary bottle of sparkling juice (or wine, had we preferred). Wonderful stay and we hope to return!

    Christy2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed staying here. Victor and Joyce were very kind hosts. I highly recommend it!

    Aileen2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a great time at Victors cottage! Beautiful scenery, clean and open space decorated nicely, perfect for amount of room for my husband and I. Victor was very helpful and knowledgeable with things to do in the area. Also, very quick with responses! Definitely recommend!

  • Victor is an outstanding host! Place is on the lake. Has a lot of trails to hike as well. Can't go wrong!

    Dylan2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at this place the past 2 years and I can't rave about it enough. It's the perfect spot for a fall trip because it's close to so many fall activities!

    David2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a true gem! The house has everything a couple might need, and its very comfortable and cozy. The view of the lake is breathtaking, and having the small pedal boat to explore the lakes is such a plus! Also, the hosts left us some very thoughtful (and yummy) treats. Highly recommend it!

    Luciana2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were extremely happy with our stay. Due to the reason we were there, it made us feel like we were at home without a worry. The serene and quiet location is just what we were hoping for. There is no doubt we will be staying again next time we are over to visit my family. Thank you for making this difficult visit an easy experience. I truly recommend this location if you are looking for a beautiful, quiet and different place to unwind. Lori & Darren

    Lori2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Victor's. It is a very comfortable, clean apartment for 2 . The pictures on line look exactly like the apartment and it's beautiful view overlooking the lake. If you are visiting to see the Dexter- Pinckney area it is in the perfect location.

    Laree2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This cozy apartment facing a peaceful lake is a perfect spot for some rest & relaxation. Whether you’re in the area to enjoy the water, visit the charming town of Hell, or venturing further afield, its a quiet and comfortable place to call home.

The hot tub was amazing, there were many cute added touches that made it feel like home, and we had an absolutely stellar experience. Thank you for allowing us to have such an amazing getaway!

    Gabe2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin was very cute and quaint!! Ron was a gracious host. There are a lot of hills around this cabin and my tiny car struggled in the winter, but Ron was there if we needed anything! The kitchen was well stocked. My friends and I had a great experience.

    Sydney2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is absolutely adorable and the view is to die for. We were there for a snow storm and finish two of their puzzles and enjoyed a relaxing weekend. We had everything we needed in terms of kitchen supplies which was very helpful. We had a few concerns and as soon as we reached out to Ron the response was almost instant. They were constantly ensuring that our stay was comfortable. We really appreciate that. Would definitely stay again

    Diana2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

    Jonathan + Rachel2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at the cottage! It was very clean, wonderfully decorated, and extremely cozy and comfortable. All the amenities we needed were available, and more. The hot tub was clean and ready for use, and had a lovely view of the lake. It was also nice to have a strong WiFi signal during our stay. The location felt very private while also being close to plenty of shops and restaurants in nearby towns. We also enjoyed hiking at the Pinckney Recreation Area. Would definitely stay here again!

    Christopher2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • I anticipated a great place and my expectations were exceeded. The cottage sits above on a hill above a lake with great views from everywhere in the home with windows from wall to wall facing the lake. Outside, you van grill, sit by a fire in the firepit, or relax in the hot tub with a great view of the lake. One of my best Airbnb experiences.

  • We had an amazing time at this adorable house! The upstairs definitely did get hot, but the house has fans that help cool it down. Having the kayaks to take out onto the lake and the neighborhood's little beach were hands down our favorite parts of the trip! Thank you for a great stay!

    Claudette2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, wonderful decor, comfy beds with soft sheets, plenty of towels, well stocked kitchen. We had an amazing time. The weather didn’t cooperate but we didn’t even care, huge porch to watch the rain and wonderful family table for games and meals. WiFi was taken out by a storm and Jason responded right away, great communication.

    Kathryn2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Love this house. Great location and access to the beach for kids and tons of beach toys and great kayaks for a lake tour. Love the cleanliness and the prompt communication with the owner. Air conditioning is great in the summer heat! Love hanging out on the porch!

    Jesse2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • This house was super cute! So clean and stocked with everything you need for fun and just the essentials too! Great amenities, tons of fish were caught off the dock, and close to restaurants and groceries. Not right on the beach, but easy access and super friendly neighbors! Highly recommend!!

    Anne2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage with a nice big porch and easy lake access. Highly recommend!

  • Very big house with a lot extras.its has garrage! And jacuzzi ! Loved it. Recommend it.

    Aivaras2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and functional house, sitting in a quiet spot on a small lake. Good for getting out of the way, but not too far from Ann Arbor for activities.

    Chris Wilder2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is truly waterfront. It was clean and spacious, modern and was perfect for our family of 14.

    Ruth2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as advertised, great little community!

    Kevin2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great view of Portage Lake. Had a real "up north" feel. Clean cottage with plenty of space. We will be back.

    Bill2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in Joe and Laura’s home. It is very spacious and comfortable, as well as nicely decorated and very clean. We were a group of 10 and had plenty of space. We enjoyed eating out on the deck, using the paddleboards and kayaks provided, as well as swimming and pontooning down the chain. Joe was very easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend this home!

    Kristin2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • This was an incredible spot for my family’s annual summer vacation. The place was very clean with plenty of beds to accommodate for everyone. Joe is very helpful and very responsive if you have any questions whatsoever. The pontoon boat ran great and was so much fun to go out on the water with the fam. The only thing with the lake is it has very shallow points and is very weedy all over/at the end of the dock at the place. Great for fishing off of, but not the best if you want to swim and float off of. There is a small beach within walking distance which is great, especially for little ones and then plenty of sand bars out on the lake as well. Overall, it was a great experience and we had an amazing time! Sad to be heading home and back to reality.

    John2019-06-11T00:00:00Z
  • This cozy waterfront home was everything we expected and more. The views, the openness of the home and the peaceful sounds were everything we needed in the morning, after checking out the local night life for a birthday getaway! If a couple of girls from Nashville wanted to stay longer, that means Kathy and John are doing it right. Thanks again for the awesome memories! Mo and Calli Nashville TN

    Maureen2019-05-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful cottage. Right on the water, very clean and well kept up. Was perfect for my wife and 2 year old daughter. Surprisingly kid friendly and generally child proofed. Lots of amenities and thoughtful touches. Kitchen is perfect for cooking meals and nice dining table that seats 6. Cable TV, stereo, dishwasher, washer/dryer, all worked very well. We will definitely stay here again!

    Located in the center of the highly desired Halfmoon chain of lakes in the Pinckney Recreation Area, Angler's Cove is the perfect choice for those looking for a private piece of lakefront to swim, ski, fish and enjoy the thousands of acres of State forest land this area has to offer 7 night minimum stay Memorial-Labor Day. Check In/Out on Saturdays. Pontoon Boat available for rent, $150 per day (two day minimum), $1,000 per week.
    The entire cottage is at your disposal. The lakefront beach and docks are a few feet away for you to enjoy.
    The Round Lake cottage community hasn't changed much in decades. You will enjoy the nostalgic feel of this vacation community in the heart of the chain of lakes. Because of it's central location on the chain, it does require a 1.2 mile drive off the paved road. The road can be narrow at times as it passes through cottages built early in the last century. You can check out Patterson Drive on the map. Total drive time from the paved road is about 5 minutes.
  • We love this cabin get away. Great for a nice family trip to relax.

    Stephanie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Angler’s Cove is a great little get away. It is perfect for our little family. The cabin is clean and the host answers questions quickly.

    Stephanie2018-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Angler's Cove is great waterfront rental for all ages. Younger kids will enjoy the sandy beach, older kids s can swim to the raft, teens and adults can kayak. The screened-in porch is the perfect place to read, play cards, or just hang out. You will find everything you need in the kitchen, and there's a grill available too. The hosts are friendly and available as needed.

    Lori2018-08-25T00:00:00Z

  • If you are looking to be right in the park (Pinckney State Rec Area) and have your own little slice of lake-life and comfortable accommodations, then this rental is it. Wonderful cottage, outstanding hosts, fantastic location - looking forward to returning!

    Natasha2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the cabin the weekend of our wedding and it worked out so great! My little cousins (ages 3 &6) had a blast fishing off the pier and playing in the loft and climbing the ladder. The Long Island/counter top with the bar stools and sky lights worked perfect for getting our hair and make up done. The kitchen was the perfect space for my family to congregate around and eat our fancy pizza the night before the wedding ;) The pizza from the bar in Hell was GREAT! Highly recommended. Thanks Bill! We had fun, even though the weather was rainy and gloomy most of the weekend.

    Lauren2017-05-01T00:00:00Z

    Charming lake front cottage on Watson lake. Watson lake is part of the Halfmoon lake chain of lakes. Enjoy the amazing view of the lake and the state land beyond. Access Half Moon, Bruin, Blind, Woodburn, Patterson and Hiland Lake all in one day. Recently remodeled. New stamped concrete sidewalk and patio. Three bedrooms, bath and a half for a family or guests. Large living room area, dining and kitchen area with an open concept that takes full advantage of the lake views.
    This lake front cottage has recently been remodeled. Stainless sleel appliances, quartz counter tops and updated furniture. Hard wood floors in most of the house and new carpet in 2 of the bedrooms. Ceilings fans in all rooms and new premium beds and linens for your comfort. Child friendly with toys and books. This is a very cozy cottage.
    This lake front cottage is located in the Pinckney recreation area. Walking distance from state trails including the well know Potowanami trail. This is a well known hiking and mountain biking trail. There is also a new biking trail near the cottage that is designed for your more seasoned bikers with a more challenging course. This trail is located 15-20 away on M-52 heading toward Chelsea, MI. The cottage is minutes away from hell Michigan where you can visit the Hell Saloon for dinner and drinks. Or have an amazing lunch at the Hell Hole restaurant. Or take the kids to the mini golf course and have an ice cream. Chelsea Michigan is only 20-30 minutes away where you can enjoy the small town feel. There are multiple small town shops. Enjoy a more formal meal at the well known Common Grill or grab a burger at Cleary’s Irish Pub across the street. Catch a play at the Purple Rose theater owned by local actor Jeff Daniels or simply hang out at the old Seitz Tavern. Needless to say there are many things to do at this cottage and you will want to come back!
  • This is a gem. The long gravel packed road to the home is well worth it. The house is set up so that you can enjoy the view from the Open main living area. The paved patio withlarge table was a nice way to enjoy some outdoor meals. The lake access has a nice sandy beach area - complete with sand toys if you have kids. While we didn'tdo any swimming, it would definitely be a blast. We did enjoy a fire with wood we bought from one of the houses on the road into the house - cheaper than anything we found elsewhere. The grill had a nice tank of propane so we enjoyed grilling some of our meals. Wifi was good -I was able to work remotely on Friday with it. Cell reception can be spotty - I was getting between 1x-4g with Verizon and another with t-mobile only has 1x at the house. Once I figured out how to work the main living room air conditioner, the house was pleasant to be in when it was very muggy outside. Two of the three bedrooms have window air conditioners that do a good job of keeping them cool. House definitely has hard water -so if you aren't a fan of the taste, bring your own. I really can't say I had any complaints and would love to come back next summer.

    Katherine2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a terrific family vacation at the cottage. The location is perfect - right on the water with a small beach, dock and swim raft. We rented a pontoon boat for the week and had access to other lakes through small channels. My kids (2 and 5) had a wonderful time swimming and playing in the sand. Outdoor and indoor toys for kids were provided which was a great! We practically had the area to ourselves during the week. Activity in the area didn’t pick up until Friday when other families arrived to enjoy their cottages. We will be back!

    Amber2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • I love this lake home! It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to relax and be comfortable. It is also at a perfect location on the chain of lakes connected to Half Moon Lake. We took the paddle boat out and the kayak out daily and explored all of the lovely lakes around us. My family and I had a wonderful vacation at this lake home and we are definitely planning to return.

    Joan2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Half Moon chain of lakes are a fun place to explore, either via kayak ,, paddle boat, or pontoon. This home is on Watson lake which is centrally located in the chain. It's relatively a quiet lake, with good fishing, and the other larger lakes are a short ride away. The home is very comfortable for a family of 4-6. The kitchen appliances and washer/ dryer are close to brand new. The gas grill, and back porch dining are are wonderful for watching the kids in the lake and for grilling a quick meal. The interior is very clean.. this is not a weekly rental, this is a familys home periodically shared out to strangers. That makes a big difference in the care and quay of the home .. thank you Aaron and family for sharing your home with us.

    Dan2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Exactly as it appears in the info provided. Clean, comfortable and enjoyable.

    Jackson2018-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is a lovely location and a great place to stay with a family. The hosts were very communicative and available to accommodate any extra needs during our visit. There were plenty of extra towels, toys, and even a baby pack-and-play available, which made this spot especially good for bringing kids along. The main room has a great view of the lake since there are huge windows all along the back, and the space is comfortable. There is a lovely patio for relaxing by the lake, and a couple of boats available for use. Bring your swimsuits if it is the right time of year! It was too cold for us in October but we did enjoy the beautiful starry night sky over the water. Highly recommended if you need a quiet spot to relax and play on your travels.

    Maya2018-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • We just got back from a long weekend at this lovely cottage. My 3 little ones (4, 5 and 6) had a great time playing in the sand, swimming off the raft and enjoying all of the toys and books that were at the house for them to use. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away from the city life! Thanks for the experience - we will be back!

    Kai2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family just returned from a week at Lakefront Cottage & it was just about perfect. The location on Island Lake is wonderful & more secluded than we expected. It’s very quiet during the week & the kids enjoyed playing on the beach, fishing, swimming to the diving raft, kayaking & exploring on the paddle boat. I spent time paddle boarding on the lake, relaxing in the hammock with a good book & watching my kids enjoy the simple pleasures of lake life. They loved it! The cottage is nicely updated & we had everything we needed. When we couldn’t find a kayak paddle, a brand new one was delivered quickly. Great service & a well appointed home away from home. I highly recommend it!

    Stay in a lovely restored farmhouse on 250+ acres of land in Dexter, MI. We are a working cattle farm with an orchard, garden, resident farmer (in a house on the property), acres of woods and miles of country roads. 3 miles of dirt road biking or running to the long Border to Border trail between Ann Arbor and Dexter! Located across the street from the Michigan Sailing Club, where you can join and spend time sailing! We're a convenient stay for University of Michigan events!
    Our farmhouse has been entirely renovated and includes new kitchen and bathroom, 2 bedrooms on the first floor and another bedroom on the 2nd floor. The farm is located 25 minutes from downtown Ann Arbor and 5 minutes from the Village of Dexter. The property has a wide variety of magical vistas and walks.
    Feel free to walk the farm. The walk along the field edges is ~ 3 miles. There are around 100 grass fed cattle that graze the farm. They generally move to new pasture each day. You also may see the horses on the farm. Tink is a miniature Shetland rescue. Smokey is a draft cross, and is gregarious. The University of Michigan sailing club is located across the street. They often have introductory sailing lessons available. Check their website and reach out to them directly if you are interested. http://michigansailingclub.org
  • Great place, Kathy was quick on responses. The place is set up wonderfully, we even had a brunch with our family from the area and they loved it too. Can't wait to come back in the summer or fall.

    Kraig And Lisa2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Farmhouse was perfect for our Christmas Family Gathering! Our family came together and thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality and surroundings. We loved walking the property and getting to know the cows and horses. The kitchen was well stocked and the layout super for making meals for the family. Since we were there in the winter we only used the front porch for cold storage. We will come back in the summer and enjoy sitting on the porch and looking out on the extensive yard, beautiful! Your quick responses to questions and special treats made us feel welcome and comfortable. We loved your towels and decor! Such a special place! Cant wait to come back!!! Thank you so much for all the little touches you added to make it a weekend to remember. We all loved it.

    Beverly2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable home located on a beautiful farm. Extremely clean and cozy! A group of friends and I stayed at Kathy's place while in town for a Michigan football game. We really enjoyed hanging by the fire and enjoying each other's company. We even talked about eventually going back to spend more time relaxing and around the farm!

    Ashley2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • We love the farm! It's a magical place with warm coffee, sweet honey, and all the flora and fauna you need to keep you comfy. Thanks for the incredible weekend - your hospitality will never be forgotten!

    Jessica2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our family had the loveliest stay at the farm. We cannot recommend the experience enough. It was such a magical way for us and especially our three year old to connect with nature. We picked and ate fresh produce from the garden, our daughter helped Cathy care for the beautiful horses, and then John took us uphill where the cows were grazing. We ate the best steaks we’ve ever tasted (that we grilled on wood fire), read stories in the evening around a fire pit, and went on endless nature walks and made lovely wild flower bouquets. We will definitely be coming back!

  • Kathy’s place has everything-all kinds of amenities for the traveler and magic for the soul. Spend a few days on the farm and you will be better for it. Go to the lake, eat all the amazing farmed foods around town and just be.

    This cozy Pickney cottage is located on Portage Lake, one of the 9 lakes on the Huron River chain. The waterfront home has a 20-foot boat dock in front of the house, with extra docks available upon request! The 2-bedroom, 2-bath vacation rental home for 6 offers 1,500 square feet just 5 minutes from Klave's Marina, 10 minutes from the Peach Mountain Observatory and 30 from Ann Arbor. Enjoy catching pike and rock bass off the dock, exploring the hiking trails and the 8-mile connection of 9 lakes.
    Master Bedroom: Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Full Bed | Family Room: Sleeper Sofa This waterfront property offers the best of both worlds - a cozy interior living space to call home and a well-furnished outdoor living space to make the most of the great outdoors. From the hammock and fire pit to the grills, pergola, and dock, the backyard is the perfect place to enjoy the quintessential lake. Back inside you'll have all the familiar comforts of home, including comfortable furnishings, free wireless internet access and a full washer and dryer. Sit back and relax on the couch while a show plays on the 70” flat-screen cable TV with surround sound any time you need a break from the outdoors. Serving your travel group couldn't be more affordable and convenient when using the home's kitchen! Fully equipped, this kitchen makes meal-prep and cleanup a breeze. Prepare delicious sides to pair with burgers cooking on the grill. The indoor dining table seats 6, or you can step out to the deck and dine al fresco.
    Portage Lake is prime for fishing and boating - as are all of the 9 lakes! Klave's Marina is just 5 minutes away which offers boat rentals and even sunset cruises. The Portage Yacht Club is located on the south end of the lake. The lake is good for swimming, and there is an 8-mile connection of 9 lakes. Take a 15-minute boat cruise or 5-minute car ride to the party store and Riverside Pizzeria, or enjoy an afternoon cruise traveling the chain to the renowned "Zukey Lake Tavern" which has a balcony beach bar overlooking Zukey Lake. Take Colony Road to Darwin Road into Hell, MI. In Hell, MI you'll find the Hell Saloon, Screams Ice Cream, and Hell Hole Bar! The quaint town of Dexter is just a 12-minute drive away from the cottage, while Brighton is 15 minutes away and home to larger stores including Costco. Howell is 15 minutes away, or you can enjoy the nightlife, shows, art and unique entertainment available in Ann Arbor 30 minutes away. For those who want to live in the fast lane, Detroit is a 75-minute drive away, while the Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is 55 minutes away.
  • I can certainly see what a special property would be in the summer and “true” fall season. This fall was unusual, winter weather, cold and inches of snow. Enjoyed our stay despite winter raring early.

    Becky2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent vacation on portage lake! We stayed for a week, having never been to Michigan we weren’t sure what to expect but we knew we wanted a chill, quiet week with family. This house was perfect for that. The house was very clean, the outside space was superb (we spent 99% of our time outdoors), 2 grills, 2 outdoor tables, tons of chairs, a hammock and a dock. We were able to rent a boat for the 4th of July from Klaves Marina which was super convenient as it started to rain during the day, we simply docked up at the house and had lunch inside until the rain stopped. Pinckney turned out to be so convenient to so many places including Ann Arbor, Brighton, Lansing, and other cities we were able to visit. Another review previously stated not to talk to the neighbors but we received nothing but excellent hospitality from all of the neighbors. One of them even offered us an evening out on their boat, which we accepted and they were so nice! I’m not sure which neighbors they were referring to, but just keep in mind it is a very quiet street so if you’re looking for something more face paced, this might not be the house for you. But seriously, we had a great week and would definitely stay again if we were ever back in town!

    Chelsey2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • nice spot, fairly close to Ann Arbor for a Big House weekend. Dexter is a great town with good restaurants, great grocery store, and nice town square. Classic Lake House, although we were there when too cold to reap the benefits.

    House is called Leisure Days. See www.lakefrontlife.com. Leisure Days has 2 bdrms, ea with a queen size bed & a family rm with a queen sofa bed. Lake front with spectacular sunset views. Internet, cable TV, linens, towels, Weber Grill, private dock!
  • Everything you’d want in a lakefront setting. Amazing views all day long, but the sunsets - wow! I didn’t have to reach out to Linda much because the house had absolutely everything I needed but she was always responsive when I did. A fabulous host. I WILL be back.

    Jamie2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Cute cottage with lots of comfy seating. Nice shallow lake with sandy bottom.

    Lynda2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Normally I only stay at hotels, as I don't like the unpredictability of renting from an individual. However, this is a rental professionally managed by Linda, and as such, there aren't surprises. While not a large rental, the 2 bed and 1 bath works great for a couple people. The house is well stocked with dishes, pots/pans, towels, bedding, and even a Hitchcock DVD box set (we watched one). This place worked great for my family to meet up and hangout. Hope to rent here again, or at Linda's other lake house, for an even longer duration next summer.

    Jane2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • I can't say enough good things about Dan & Liz and their lovely lake house. It was perfect for our family ( me, my husband, one of our kids, two sets of grandparents) during a hectic graduation weekend in Ann Arbor, which is less than 30 minutes away. Well-appointed, really comfortable beds, super clean (!), with thoughtful and communicative hosts, on a beautiful lake. Highly recommended!

    Xanthe2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • best place ever, great hosts, views and house. Couldn't be any better. Highly recommend. They meet all needs.

    Holly2018-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Loved our stay the 2nd time as much if not more than the 1st time. House and all the furnishings well maintained and very clean. New and BIG flat screen TV really awesome. We look forward to returning again!

    June2018-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Second time staying here and we love it so much. Even if the weather isn't the best it is great. Plenty to do in the area. Couldn't ask for anything! Rented a boat this year and Dan was so helpful to my husband in getting a place for us to dock it properly. Loved the new floating island. It was fun for all ages 8 to 51. Can't wait to come back again next year.

    Holly2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful lake house right on Portage Lake. Fully equipped with everything you could want for a relaxing vacation on a beautiful Michigan lake. Dan was a wonderful host. We have 2 small children and they absolutely loved it. We will be back.

    Christopher2017-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Liz welcomed us personally at the house, which was very helpful. The location was just minutes away from grocery and a few eateries and the house itself was exactly as described - a perfectly peaceful lakefront home! We loved being able to use the kayaks and wade right into the water from the yard. We had family staying in another home on the lake and were able to kayak to visit them, no car required! The screened in porch allowed us to enjoy the outdoors even when it rained. The house itself was beautifully appointed, comfortable and incredibly clean. We would have loved to stay longer if we didn't have to return to work! Highly recommended if you have the opportunity to stay at Dan and Liz's lake home.

  • The pink house was great and the neighbors were really nice and helpful. The lake is beautiful and enjoyed our stay.

    George2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

    Claire2019-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent Memorial Day weekend at the pink cottage. It was very comfortable. There were 7 of us, and we could all fit around the table as well as in the living room watching tv. We cooked all of our meals there. The grill was great, and while the kitchen isn’t large, we were able to get several people in there at once. We would definitely stay there again.

    Beth2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Pink Cottage for U of M graduation weekend as there were no hotels nearby. I had booked this nearly 10 months ago. What a great spot - out of the way of the hustle and bustle of AA but still close enough that we went back and forth numerous times. We used it as a base for working on a house in Yipsi - so it was great to return to a lovely location and relaxing spot. House is HUGE -sleeps at least 10 comfortably. TONS of space to just sit and relax both inside and outside. 2 fridges, 2 bathrooms, plenty of towels and dishes etc. TV in main room has cable etc -but the outside is what you wanna look at. Beautiful location for watching sunrise and sunset, with coffee or a drink in the evening. Neighbors are super friendly - needed to borrow a cork screw!! Well stocked with dishes etc. We will definitely return here in the warmer weather. We were here early May -before boating season. Loved it!

    Cindy2019-05-06T00:00:00Z

    Diane2018-06-10T00:00:00Z

    Moh2018-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is incredible, the perfect lake house. If we're able to come back we'll have to rent the boats, because the lake is amazing. You're close to neighbors but we hardly saw them at all, and when we did they were SO nice. There's a lot of space in the house and we grilled out which was great. Thanks Penny!

    This newly built home on Portage Lake is the perfect getaway for large groups and families! The house holds 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, an indoor AND outdoor kitchen, an open concept living room, and a laundry room. The backyard patio set and table, bonfire pit, picnic table, and dock are free game for guests. 2 kayaks and a 5 seater paddle boat are also yours to use! With the exception of the garage and the basement, the entire house is free to enjoy during your stay.
    I am brand new to Airbnb, which is why you won’t see many reviews for now. I’m willing to work with and accommodate everyone as best I can to ensure this stay is as easy and enjoyable as can be!
    The boat launch and marina face the back of the home, making it very convenient to drop your own boat/jet ski and park them right at dock! There is Riverside pizza and a local party/convenience store that are both within a 3-4 minute walk from the home.
  • This home is absolutely amazing! It was very clean and beautiful. I will definitely be staying here again in the future!

It couldn’t have been a better Airbnb experience and we would love to stay here again!

    Charlotte2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

  • We had the best time! Everyone from 5 years old to 70 years old fully enjoyed our weekend. We kayaked, made s’mores, swam, relaxed on the front porch, grilled and rented a pontoon boat for a day from Klave’s Marina. The home was incredibly spacious and very clean. Alicia was also very responsive. We will definitely be back!

    Kai2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is everything we wanted and more for a girls weekend away. The open floor plan made it perfect for socializing while in the kitchen and not feeling like you’re missing out on any of the action. We definitely plan to go back again next year!

    Our place is close to nature. A cozy cottage on Lake Patterson that sleeps six. Perfect for a relaxing getaway. Graceful Swans and Cranes fly in, lounging in the lake. Take the kayaks out on the chain of lakes. We have song birds in the daytime and lightning bugs visit at night. Build a fire in the pit and rest in the comfortable chairs to gaze at the starry sky. The cottage has been given a major makeover. See our space for details.
    The lake is absolutely lovely and the chain of lakes it is attached too has great fishing and birding. The 2-4 person kayak is available for you to explore our lake and the chain of lakes we are connected to. There are lounging floats to float around the island on a sunny afternoon. If you like to hike or bike the trails are just minutes away. The cottage has been given a major makeover. Brand new shining wood floors, plush carpet and bedding in the bedrooms, top of the line appliances from the fridge, range, microwave to the washer & dryer. Completely repainted inside and out. Central heat and air. The old photos do not do it justice, new ones to follow.
    This is a quiet neighborhood, with friendly neighbors. We are close to Chelsea, Dexter, Howell, the Brighton recreation area and just minutes from the town of "Hell", quirky spot with miniature golf, restaurant, bar and they promote various activities thru out the year, such as the marathon. We are walking distance to the hiking trails and biking trail from Pinckney to Dexter. The lake and sunsets are absolutely beautiful.
  • We love nature, sunsets, kayaking, the sand hill cranes come into nest each night. The swans are swimming out there while you kayak this wonderful friendly, lake. Also such a nice home and pretty backyard on the water. Love it, would definitely stay again. Nina

    Nina2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Small lovely clean home on Patterson Lake. Island in front of the house provided entertainment in the form of geese, heron and numerous birds. Fishing is wonderful and morning coffee on the deck was a big highlight. First rate both inside and out.

    Barbara2019-08-11T00:00:00Z

  • Lake Patterson Cottage is a beautiful location and ideal for a relaxing break

    Sean2019-06-26T00:00:00Z

    Michael2018-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is incredible. If you are looking for a beautiful home that will give you serenity, this is the place for you. Patterson is a calm, quiet lake with lots of natural forested shorelines. The cottage is very comfortable and it is nicely decorated. We spent a lot of time out on the large deck that overlooks the lake and a mini wetlands area located in front of the cottage. The lake’s swans and other beautiful birds would hang out right there in front of us. But my favorite part of our stay was kayaking the chain of lakes. By far the best kayaking I have ever experienced. I didn’t want to leave!

    Joan2018-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is perfect for getting away from the busyness of daily life. You can kayak on the lake, light a fire at night to eat s’mores, and enjoy the surrounding nature and beauty of the area. Everyone slept comfortably and the kitchen had everything we needed to bake, cook, and grill. We will be returning in the future.

    Fully furnished home about 20 - 30 minutes from Ann Arbor and The Big House. We are on Portage Lake, connected to the Huron River and the Chain of Lakes (9 lakes). Swimming, sandy bottom, 110 feet of docks, includes use of four kayaks, canoe and row boat, paddles, oars and life jackets are included. The second floor has three bedrooms and one full bathroom. Large master bedroom with queen size bed and large windows facing the lake. Second bedroom also has a queen size bed. Third bedroom has two twin beds in a trundle (one hides under the other when not in use). All sheets, pillows, pillow cases and many towels are included. The first floor is open and has a complete kitchen, dining room area, living room area and sitting area. Living room area has two couches, one is a queen size bed pull-out. Full bathroom also on first floor. New Smart TV in the living room. Separate laundry room with washer and dryer and fully stocked with detergents and cleaning products if you need to do laundry. Our lake is about 96 feet deep and fishing includes bluegill, crappie, largemouth bass, northern pike, rock bass, smallmouth bass, sunfish and walleye. We have caught some of these, but have only seen some, like walleye and pike, caught by neighbors. Our lake covers about 644 square acres. There are designated catch and release areas on the Huron River nearby. We are near great hiking and biking, such as Peach Mountain, Pinckney State Recreation Area, Waterloo State Recreation Area, Lakelands Trail, B2B Trail and Hudson Mills Metropark. A good walk or bike around the lake is about eight miles. We will provide our maps of our favorite mountain, road and gravel road rides and hikes. Bicycles can be rented in Dexter. In winter there are plenty of marked and unmarked trails for hiking, cross country skiing and snow shoeing. We are 20 minutes from the Big House and we are good for football weekends. Fall football weekends are not only good for Michigan football, but Fall is a great time to use our four kayaks and canoe. The summer residents are mainly gone and there is very little boat traffic. Winter is great for cross country skiing, hiking, walking and experiencing An Arbor, Dexter Chelsea, Pinckney and other local towns and villages. We are a ten minute drive to Hell, Michigan (not great restaurants, but plenty of kitch - ask for John Colone - he's the "mayor" of Hell and he'll gladly let you re-new your wedding vows in the Hell Chapel). Local farmers are nearby with seasonal daily fresh picked corn, vegetables, eggs and fruit. It is a ten minute drive to pick your own blueberries (Dexter Berry Farm) and raspberries (Berry Hill Farms), depending on the season. The excellent and comprehensive Ann Arbor Farmers Market is every Wednesday and Saturday. Other local Farmers Markets include Dexter (Sat.), Pinckney (Sat.) and Howell (Sun.). There are two golf courses within a ten minute drive: Whispering Pines Golf Club and Hudson Mills Metropark and many others within a half hour drive. There are a lot of antique sellers nearby, including the Ann Arbor Antiques Market at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds. We will supply very detailed lists of local restaurants, farmers markets, recreational stuff to do and a calender of local events like county and town fairs, festivals and museums. We have several board games: Scrabble, Battleship, Risk, Chinese Checkers, Apples To Apples, Othello, Backgammon, Chess and Yahtzee. No smoking allowed inside or outside. No dogs.
  • Mark & Julies place was fantastic. We enjoyed every minute. It was immaculate and thwy added a nice personal touch upon our arrival

    Channon2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a great Michigan football weekend at Mark & Julie’s beautiful Lake House. It was an easy ride into Ann Arbor. The house was clean and spacious for our 4 adults and 2 children. Mark & Julie provided more than enough information about the house and surrounding area. Unfortunately, we only spent a short (and rainy) four days in town, so we didn’t have an opportunity to experience everything it had to offer, but we definitely plan to return on future visits to the area. Looking forward to taking canoes out on the Lake the next time we go. Great place, beautiful location and great value.

    Robert2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    James2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Mark & Julie run a great household with an awesome location. I received a few messages before check-in and everything was great during the stay! The binder had WAY more information that I think I could ever use, but it's super appreciated. For future travelers... the driveway is pretty severe but only because the house is on the very edge of the water. It's a GREAT location.

  • Mark and Julie’s lake house is the perfect vacation spot. The view is spectacular with the lake being only a few feet away. The furniture and Decor is comfortable and modern with lots of amenities. We would definitely stay here again!
