Photos and Description of the Onekama vacation cottage rental

Newly Constructed 4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Cottage with Great Outdoor Space

Construction completed in the fall of 2014 on this lovely year-round cottage. All the comforts of home await you, under vaulted knotty pine ceilings. The cottage comfortably sleeps 12, while in the summer months there's room for four additional guests on the screened in sleeping porch. An upstairs master suite provides a serene retreat, complete with a claw foot tub. Two main floor bedrooms include one with a queen bed and another set up with a queen and single bed. The walk-out basement features a third full bathroom and a fourth bedroom. A Sleeping Nook is nestled in a corner of the basement and includes a double/single bunk. Large closets provide ample space for your suit cases and all your gear, while dressers and chests of drawers invite you to move right in! A full modern -open concept- kitchen is available for meal preparation and is fully equipped with pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils. The living room includes plenty of seating with a towering stone, wood-burning fireplace. WiFi and flat screen tv with cable and Netflix. A washer/dryer is available for your use. Linens, towels, beach chairs and sand toys are provided, as well.

An enclosed wrap around porch provides ample outdoor living space with an open deck for sunning, a covered deck with a porch swing and also a screened porch for evening comfort. The enclosure is perfect for young children and pets! Plenty of outdoor seating is available for your comfort, while relaxing or cooking out on the grill.

Experience nature trails, climb a sand dune, go biking, fishing, kayaking, jogging and exploring. Take a long walk on the beach or head out to the pier. Spend the day on your boat skiing or tubing on Portage Lake. Relax & play on the beach or jump the waves in Lake Michigan. The Sunset House provides a gathering spot at the public access to admire the beauty of the sun setting over Lake Michigan to end the day. Build a bonfire and sit around the fire pit just outside the cottage or head to the beach and gaze at the stars in the evenings.

Bring the whole family and enjoy this peaceful, private setting, which is ideally positioned between both Lake Michigan beaches and beautiful Portage Lake.

Onekama is a sleepy, two-lake, cottage town located along Lake Michigan's sandy beaches and 'all-sports' Portage Lake. The relaxed pace and peaceful atmosphere provide the perfect get away. Walk to Portage Lake to see the sun rise in the morning and watch the sunset over Lake Michigan for the perfect ending to each day. M-22 winds through town and provides miles and miles of scenic and shoreline views. Whether you want a summer beach vacation, fall color & wine tours or winter ski trip, you will find year round fun for all ages! Golf at the world famous Arcadia Bluffs, or at least stop by and enjoy cocktails in their Adirondack chairs while listening to the bagpiper play at sunset. Little River Casino provides entertainment for adults. Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park is 40 miles away and is a breath-taking experience that you must see to believe.

The Portage Point area is an exceptional location with public access to both lakes within short walking distance and includes hiking/biking trails. Nature at its finest - year round!
