Are you environmentally conservative with your water usage? Do you love to sit by the fire, relaxing and taking in the view? Is a sandy beach a bonus for you? If so, this is the ideal cabin for you! At the point between Little Bay de Noc and Big Bay de Noc, this cabin is ideal for capturing the beauty of Lake Michigan. Watch the freighters pass by on gorgeous Lake Michigan. Have your morning coffee while you watch the eagles soar overhead, or take the view in from behind the big picture window in the cabin. Sunsets are spectacular here! Enjoy the privacy and solitude without immediate neighbors. This cozy cabin, and its tranquil location, will capture your heart as you find respite from busy schedules and everyday stress. It would be an ideal writer's retreat, or a quiet, cozy get-away for an environmentally conscientious couple. This cabin is ideally situated for active exploration. Bring your bike and enjoy miles of well-paved, quiet roads winding past bucolic farms, or bring your kayak. The clear, shallow waters of the quiet cove are perfect for kayakers. Anglers will enjoy the outstanding fishing opportunities at Big Bay and Little Bay De Noc. Enjoying hiking miles of trails within driving distance of the Stonington. We are happy to announce that the beach in front of the Stonington Clearview Cottage is wide and sandy at the moment (May 2016) . It's been an ideal beach since the ice melted. Still, the tides do change at times, and in 2014, we did not have a beach. Therefore, if the beach is a bonus, and not a necessity, you'll love it here! The pathway down to the beach has some sea grass, yet it an easy stroll, all within 50 feet of the cottage door. Water conservation at the cottage is not only nice, it is essential. The water system needs to be purged for 30 seconds each morning to clear the filter. This is easily done by pressing the button located in the master bedroom. We have a 45 gallon holding tank. Once the tank runs dry, it fills at a rate of 6 gallons/hour. The daily amount of water most people normally use in their homes in the city would be excessive here. Daily showers for a family of 4, especially if you have average teenagers, in addition to multiple dish washings and toilet flushing (especially by teens or older family members) could result in a loss of water pressure before the week is out. Yes, sometimes the water will appear to have a brownish tint-- that is solely due to the iron in the water. Go green in this beautiful lakefront cottage! Drinking water is provided during your stay at the Stonington Cottage. A water cooler is provided at the cabin, so you will have plenty of drinking water during your stay at the Clearview Stonington Cottage. Cara's favorite point about this cottage: This unique location--- right at the tip of the Stonington Peninsula, where the Little and Big Bay De Noc meet in Lake Michigan. I love that it gives you a great vantage point to see the freighters. The fire pit is set up perfectly. Beds: Main floor: 1 Queen Bed Upstairs (open loft): 2 double/full-sized beds. **Caution-- even though we have plenty of bedroom space, the challenge for most people at this beautiful cabin is the strict water conservation that is required for your stay. Therefore, 2 is the ideal number of people at the Stonington Cottage.** Distances from: Peninsula Point Lighthouse- Very close to the cottage. Come for a visit and see where the Monarch Butterflies hang out around mid September! Picture Rocks National Lakeshore- 1 hour away Tahquamenon Falls State Park- 139 miles and 2 hours 55 minutes away. Mackinac Bridge- 148 miles and 3 hours 4 minutes away. Nearest Boat Launch:Fayette Historic State Park, On Swede 13th Rd, 2.8 miles from property Frequently Asked Questions: (FAQ) Beach: This is a small, natural, Lake Michigan beach. In 2016 and as of May of 2017, there has been a nice, sandy beach area. In 2015, the beach was underwater. Grill: Yes, there is a charcoal grill at the cottages. Pets are welcome! Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet. Water: Most of our guests and the owner's themselves have no problem with the water. Still, we have found that people from the city, who are used to an unlimited amount of water at all times have run the well dry during their stay, and have had to wait a few hours for it to slowly refill. This is a shallow well. We always like to fully disclose any potential hiccups.More
