Welcome to the Resorter Cottage, a property of the Green Buoy Resort. Located on M22, the scenic route of northern Michigan. This cottage has a nautical vibe, open layout and is newly appointed with a full kitchen, living room, queen bed and private bath with walk in shower. Original windows restored to let in the lake breezes. This property has lovely views of Portage Lake, a vintage Esther Williams swimming pool and a firepit. Enjoy the outdoors with your own charcoal grill and patio table.

The space
Please note: July 4th weekend requires a four night stay.

The Resorter Cottage is part of the Green Buoy Resort. Our place was created with adults in mind for restful getaways and rejuvenation. We promote a relaxing space to unwind without the joyous sounds of the youngest generation. This place is just for you! There are 6 cottages on the property, each with a different design & layout. The owner's cottage sits up front followed by our smaller cottages. (Listings available on this platform too). The guests share the resort amenities.

PLEASE NOTE: Our entire property is 100% NON SMOKING. If you are a smoker, please book a different property. Your stay will be terminated for any violations.

Fall in love with this vintage nautical cottage reminiscent of a 1950's boathouse. This newly appointed end unit next to the woods boasts modern amenities along with vintage finds reflecting the owners love of restoration marine hardware.

This nautical retreat features painted floors with throw rugs, decor from classic wood boats, kitchen lighting made from ropes and shelving crafted from reclaimed wood from the property. Original windows restored to let lake breezes in and a screen door that slams just like a cottage door should.

The cottage has a small but thoughtfully complete kitchen for those who love to cook. The cutest little 4 burner stove and oven, full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, crock pot, tea pot, toaster, knives, pots, pans, dinnerware, serving pieces and utensils. You'll find pot holders, paper towels, dish towels and dish soap too. The galley wouldn't be complete without a nautical ice bucket, wine glasses, beer glasses, juice glasses, shot glasses and can koozies. Did somebody say boat drinks?

The sleeping area features a queen size zero gravity bed. This allows the guest to raise the head and foot of the bed putting the body into a relaxing zero gravity position - a relaxing treat! Turn the wall mounted television either towards the bed or the couch. The smart tv is ready for you to log in to your streaming apps (no cable).

Your private bath has a walk in shower, a repurposed little blue sink and countertops made from barnwood. Far from a poop deck and more like a head, this little bathroom will get the job done with a fluffy bath rug and luxurious towels.

The living area features a comfy loveseat that opens into a twin bed and a generous sized ottoman so go ahead and put your feet up. Ease into the brightly colored chair and dive into a good book or drool over the old boat magazines. The dining table is a great spot for a card game or two.

After a day of hiking, biking and exploring, kick off your shoes, it's time to chop the veggies and grill the steaks. Your outdoor space has a patio table, chairs and gas grill. Feel free to snip some fresh herbs for your dinner from our little herb garden out front. Our charming little woodside cottage has a window a/c unit (summer season), and a ceiling fan to keep you cool. From barometers to buoys, our Resorter cottage will have you longing for classic boats, simpler times and tall glasses of lemonade. Easy cottage living invites you to slide into vacation mode.

Enjoy our seasonally open swimming pool. It was built in 1954! It's a vintage Esther Williams cement pool. It gets full sun so the pool water is warmer than the lake. We provide lounge chairs, umbrellas, pool floats and a perfect backdrop for your Instagram photos. Our grassy courtyard has space for games and a gorgeous view of Portage Lake if you just want to stare at the water for the afternoon. The courtyard firepit is a great place to roast s'mores after dinner, meet your cottage neighbors and toast to a great vacation day. We provide the firewood so you can just relax. Bring your own hammock for a lazy afternoon in the shade of the large trees out back.

NEW for the 2021 season: Beach frontage and Kayaks!
Guests will have access to our private sandy beach on Portage Lake, just a short walk from the cottage. The beach is a perfect spot for you to launch your kayak or lounge by the water and enjoy Portage Lake, which channels into Lake Michigan. We have kayaks available for guest use are planning to have a dock and guests may rent dock space, if available.

Things to note:
Outdoor cameras are used in public spaces such as parking areas, sidewalks, pool, courtyard, etc. There are no cameras in guest cottages.

Safety Precautions re COVID19:
The cottage will be thoroughly sanitized before and after each guest. Housekeeping will take longer than usual. Our attention to cleanliness is very important to us.

Neighborhood Overview:
The cottages are located in the quaint town of Onekama. The town's hot breakfast spot is just across the street, the M22 Grill, open daily until 2pm. Two blocks east is the EZ Market gas station and market featuring a meat counter, groceries and beer/wine/liquor. Walk another block to the Blue Slipper, the locals favorite watering hole. Occasionally you will find a food truck in the parking lot there. To our west is the Village of Onekama with the usual post office, bank, hardware store, village park and boat launch. You will also find some super cute shops... park and walk... Anchored Designs, Patina, Lakeside Treats and Mac Beth, for eats there is Papa J's ice cream and Yellow Dog Coffee. About a half mile farther is the Glenwood Restaurant, celebrating 20+ years, reservations recommended.

Do you like to play tennis? Courts are just two blocks away at Onekama Public School.

Morning walks? Enjoy the quiet village and surrounding neighborhood. Our Village park is about a half mile away, next to the ice cream shop, so take a walk, grab a double scoop and wander over to the little sandy beach to watch the boat traffic.

Biking? M22 is a popular biking route. The road has a nice shoulder for bicycles and a ride out to Lake Michigan is just 4.6 miles (one way). Plug in Captain John Langland Park into your map and be sure to stop at the artesian well along the way to fill your water bottle. People drive for miles for this refreshing cold water.

Bird watching? Arcadia Marsh, a Great Lakes coastal marsh, is a robust and vibrant nature preserve and home to more than 250 bird species, including 17 species listed as endangered, threatened or of special concern. Bring binoculars for the ¾ mile walk on the boardwalk. The beautiful Arcadia overlook is close by as is the Baldy Trail for hiking the dunes. Approx 10 miles from the cottage.

We truly love what we do here and look forward to hosting you. Please reach out if there is anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Keep in touch with us on Insta @greenbuoyresort.
