Inside look at Cottage 16

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Each of the 18 cottages at Firefly Resort are separately owned and have a different personality. We asked the owner of Cottage 16 for her favorite aspects of the cottage and the surrounding area:

Love the way the bamboo floors feel on my bare feet in the summer… sitting by the fire pit at night and telling ghost stories to my girls….love the sound of little ones playing flashlight freeze tag at dark….love the way the streets are white in the winter instead of slushy brown… taking early walks on the beach with a dog that never tires of retrieving tennis balls from of the lake no matter what the season… taking naps in front of the fireplace in the winter…love that we are walking distance  to the beach, a great restaurant and a small grocer so we can park the car and never get back in it until we head back to Chicago.

Renovated in 2003, Cottage 16 features window air conditioning unit, fireplace, 1 full bed and 1 daybed to king, wood flooring, screened in front porch, tv, cable, microwave, blender and coffee maker. It is also one of the pet-friendly cottages.

Family Reunions

Friday, December 10th, 2010

As winter hovers over us, now is the time to start making plans for spring and summer events. The cottages at Firefly Resort are PERFECT for family reunions.

With 18 beautifully restored cottages, families can spend time together and still have their own space to retreat to. Firefly Resort offers a group area with outdoor grills, picnic nooks, perennial gardens and bonfires at dusk.

Kids can spend their time on swings, in a playhouse or playing many games in the large yard.

Taking a short walk, families can enjoy the sandy beach of Lake Michigan during the day or catch an amazing view of the sunset.

With many options in shopping, dining and entertainment, Michigan’s Harbor Country is the perfect compliment to a group getaway at Firefly Resort.
