About this listing

The cottage is located a few minutes away from the town of Barryton and 25-30 minutes from Mt. Pleasant and Big Rapids.

Located on the Chippewa River, it is perfect for kayaking or tubing or just sitting back and watching and listening to the flowing water.

The annual Wheatland Music Festival is 20 minutes south.

The Pere Marquette rail-to-trail is 20 minutes north (Biking/Hiking/Snowmobile)

My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, friends and families with kids.

The space

Open concept (750 sq. ft.) with views of the river from almost anywhere in the cottage.

The entire cottage was remodeled in 2016. All appliances, furniture, and flooring are new.

Two private bedrooms both with locking doors (Extra sleeping arrangements for an additional person can be made using one of the 6 foot benches in the common area).

Nice open flow to the kitchen with a microwave and new electric oven.

Propane heat and wood burning stove as well as a window air conditioning unit to keep the place comfortable.

16x8 deck facing the river. There is also a small charcoal grill for your use.

Two fire pits - by the river and in the front yard.

Plenty of parking in the driveway.

Guest access

You will have full access to the cottage and the property (except for the detached garage).

Interaction with guests

I am located an hour and a half away in Grand Rapids but will be reachable via phone. My next door neighbors, Mike and Tracey (full time residents), will also be available to assist with questions.

The cottage will be unlocked before your arrival.

Other things to note

There is a coffee maker and filters available.

Clean towels and linens are provided.

Soap/shampoo/conditioner/toilet paper provided.

Kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans and cooking utensils. Dishes, silverware, and glasses provided.

Electric oven/stove and microwave for cooking.

Firewood for campfires (to be kept within the fire ring) is onsite to use.

If you need to turn on the propane heater but are unsure of how to do it, please ask myself or Mike and Tracey next door.

We loved this cottage! It was beautiful and so peaceful! The cottage had everything we needed and the neighbors were wonderful. They provided mosquito repellent for me before our tubing trip down the river. I hope to come back here in the future!!

Cute little place right on the Chip. Cozy with neighbors. A little buggy so bring your bug spray. There are a few great trees on the property for hammocks.
