As you enter Huron National Forest, driving through the long tree lined, gravel driveway leading up to the cottage, you immediately feel a classic Up North experience upon you. As you get away from it all, there is ease on the forefront of this cottage in Rose City, Michigan. Pulling onto the nice driveway, you will find the cottage easily accessible, sitting on the small, 7 acre private Briggs Lake. Plus you have access to the Double Garage with opener so unpacking or packing is convenient regardless of the weather.
Entering the cottage, there is a convenient area to take off your boots, hang up a wet towel or just place all your coats together. Through the door you will immediately be captured by the gorgeous view from the large window across the living room. See the ideal space for your family to share meals on the beautiful wood table, directly across from the well-stocked kitchen. The kitchen has all your basic necessities, plus a few bonus small appliances, such as a micro-grill and blender. Unlike many vacation rentals, this cottage actually has a dishwasher and air conditioning! The view of the small lawn and surrounding trees are ideal when you want to watch your children playing a lawn game or your pet sniffing around his/her new surroundings.
Not only are the kitchen and dining area on the main floor, you will find a great living space with a comfortable, large couch for watching your favorite shows on the Smart TV. Bring your Netflix account information, or we'll provide you one. Even though the amenities are plenty and the comfort level high, it's hard to spend much time deep inside the cottage when there is so much to experience on the outside.
The main floor has a wide, comfortable year-round sunroom. Sit at the table with your laptop as you get caught up on email from work, or cozy up on the couch with a book on the opposite side of the porch. There is also a main floor bedroom with a queen bed which overlooks the grassy area. Watch the snow fall or your kids play on the beach, all from the comfort of the year round porch. This is ideal for anyone who would struggle getting down the incline to the beach area, yet want to see the fun.
Across the living room is the stairs leading to the 2 upstairs bedrooms. Both bedrooms have a queen-sized bed present. One bedroom faces the water, while the other faces the woods. Between the bedrooms is a small 1/2 bath with a toilet and sink, which is so convenient for those middle of the night trips to the bathroom. In the basement, there are 2 additional twin beds, plus a convenient stove and fridge. The washer and dryer are located in the kitchen area as well. Plus, on those rainy days there is nothing like a ping-pong tournament to bring your family together.
The truly unique piece of this Rose City cottage is the experience of feeling connected to nature through the astounding views of both the Huron National Forest and Briggs Lake. There are just so many things you can do in this area: tubing, fishing, kayaking, snowmobiling, ice skate right in the back yard, and golf courses are all not too far away!
