All the comforts of home in a beautiful Lake Michigan cottage

Throw all your worries away, and enjoy a restful stay at this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath cottage.

The large knotty pine living room and dining area features elegant vaulted ceilings and an original fireplace — the perfect space for reading, family games, and dinners around the large farm table. The fully-stocked kitchen features all the comforts of home, including a dishwasher and seating area.

On one side of the house is a full bathroom and two bedrooms. One bedroom features a queen bed, and the other has two single beds. On the other side of the house, near the kitchen, you will find a spacious bedroom with a queen bed and its own half bath. Guests who are parents may enjoy this room while the kids stay on the other side of the house. Mid Oaks Cottage also features central air conditioning for your comfort.

Outside the cottage, there is a large deck that faces Lake Michigan. This is a perfect place to enjoy dinner al fresco or take in a beautiful sunset.

Nearby, you’ll also find a private path that leads down a hill onto a public Lake Michigan beach. The walk takes just five minutes. Alternatively, you can hop in the car and drive just two minutes to the channel, where you’ll find another free Lake Michigan beach to enjoy.

In the fall of 2019, the ownership of this property was actually transferred back to the original family that built the home. To renters who have enjoyed the home in previous years: Everything has remained the same (furniture, etc). We are only improving your stay! All linens are provided (including beach towels).

Please note that the property does not allow boats or RVs.


  • Wonderful Stay!

    We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. There was soft music playing when we arrived and a basket of treats (fresh eggs, granola bars, water and local jam). It was a lovely touch to make us feel welcomed. The cottage is very nicely decorated/furnished and was clean. The kitchen was well stocked. Our son loved playing in the front yard area and we loved the beautiful views of Lake Michigan. We got to see two storms come in and two very beautiful sunsets. The cottage is a super short drive to a nice beach and we enjoyed going every day. There is a way to walk to the beach from the cottage but we didn’t try that out because we had a toddler with us. It was a great setting for making family memories. We would absolutely stay here again whenever we are back in Michigan!

  • Great family vacation spot!

    We loved our stay at mid oaks! We loved the history and overall feeling of the cottage. It was great being so close to the lake. The furniture and bedding was all very comfortable. We stayed during a cooler week and were glad. Cooking in the kitchen gets really hot so we tried to only use the kitchen at breakfast and mostly used the grill. It would’ve been nice to have an extra set of towels and hand towels and a laundry basket for going up and down from the basement. And another note for anyone coming with small children, there isn’t a bathtub. Just standup shower. These aren’t complaints, just notes. Everything was really clean and well taken care of. If you have kids and loads of stuff you will probably want to drive down to the beach but we never had an issue with parking down there. We enjoyed a concert at the bandshell, icecream at the old time soda fountain, and coffee and books from the book shop. I would love to come back next summer!

  • Very Enjoyable Stay at Mid-Oaks

    My family and I had such an enjoyable stay at Mid-Oaks. We spent our days visiting some nearby nature preserves and sunning and reading on the beach which is just a short walk from the cottage. The weather was a little cool, but that made for cozy nights by the fireplace. We felt very welcomed as we entered the clean and fresh cottage and were greeted with fresh eggs, a welcome basket, and soft music playing. What a lovely place! Thanks!
