The season is changing and spring is in the air, finally. That means the morel mushroom hunting will be starting soon. Trout Season and Bass Season will be opening.
Captain's cottage sits on 60 feet of lake front property and overlooks the beautiful Perch Lake. The cottage has one of the most beautiful views of the Lake. When you wake up in the morning, you have to sit on the deck and just enjoy the sunrise. One of the favorite things to do in the area is take a canoe ride around the lake in the morning or evening. That is the time when you see the most wildlife. Another relaxing thing to do is enjoy a walk. There is a one mile loop that goes around the lake. With lots of State Land in the area, which makes the Captain's Cottage a great place for hikers, hunters and everyone else to come and enjoy. If you are able to pull...

Loved my stay. Everything you would need. Only thing I would suggest is to leave a supply of t-paper there. Besides that everything was perfect. Beds were great, fishing was pretty good. Besides the rain for a day and half, will be back.

About the neighborhood
The Captain's Cottage is on Perch Lake in the middle of no where yet it is 20 miles from Traverse City and Cadillac. With plenty of State Land with lakes, rivers and streams. Suitable for hiking, swimming, fishing and canoeing. The Lake is 30 acres with no gasoline engines.(a quite lake) You can stay and enjoy all kinds of fishing, there is lots of blue gill and bass to keep the family busy. Also enjoy the wildlife that comes down to the lake. Some of the wildlife you may see is deer, loons and our resident Bald Eagle . Sometimes at night while you are sitting on the deck looking over the lake you can listen to Whipper Willow. Watch out for the sunsets they are just wonderful. I have yet to capture the sunset to post on our listing, so if you capture a great sunset while staying... more
