If aesthetics matter to you you'll love this little cabin in the woods. Beautiful landscaping meets you upon arrival and welcomes you with a private experience thoughtfully put together. We enjoyed the shade and lake views while grilling dinner after a day of sun on the beach. It's a short 20 minute the Esch Beach for beautiful sunsets. Great time and would definitely stay again!

The property is beautiful, relaxing and quiet. Flowers bloomed everywhere. Friendly dogs welcomed us and showed us to our doorstep. Woke up to the sounds of loons on the lake every morning. Comfy bed. Close to Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor and Traverse City. Would 10/10 recommend to others.

We loved staying here! The gardens you see in the property listing are as beautiful if not even more so in person. Very pleasant setting right on a small lake. The cottage is lovely, great for 2 people, might be a little tight for more than that but still workable. The patio right outside the bedroom looking out onto the lake was a great way to start the day. We had a nice chat with the owner who takes great pride in the property. Easy short drive to Traverse City or Interlochen, depending on which direction you are headed. Highly recommend!

The Garden Cottage is simply magical and I truly did expect the 7 dwarves to come marching by, singing “Hi, ho,hi, ho, it’s off to work we go.” The cottage is charming and so is its owner, Dorina. She is very personable and helpful. We found the location to be great for the things we wanted to do in the area. The shower was great too!

Loved Dorina's place - it was so chill and serene. We had a baby and a toddler with us and there was an extra living room downstairs that we could set up their bassinet and crib in which was perfect. Flowers for us in every room, bed was super comfortable and it had everything we needed - in particular, I appreciated having nice pots and pans to use - sometimes in vacation rentals these are just throwaway items from thrift stores, and it was so nice to have clean items. The place was absolutely charming!

Perfect spot
We stayed 4 nights in this perfect cottage. It’s tiny, but charming in every detail. We were traveling with 2 teens and expected them to have to share a sofa bed. In fact, there is a sofa bed in each of the sitting areas. The indoor spaces (including the adorable and fully functional kitchen) are perfect for our family, but it’s the outdoor spaces that make this the most perfect cottage ever, starting with the adorable paint colors. The cottage is surrounded by flowers, the outdoor furniture is comfortable and the beach area is perfectly appointed. Our expectations weren’t just exceeded, but we’re blown away. We can’t wait to go back.

Beautiful Weekend Getaway
With am extremely hectic couple of months preceding our anniversary, my wife and I was looking for a quiet getaway for our anniversary, and came across this cottage. It was everything we had hoped for and more! Quaint, quiet, scenic, and well furnished. My biggest regret is we only had a couple days. Reasonable drive to Lake Ann andTraverse City for more activities. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully in the summer for some kayaking and swimming.
