pricing and availability:


Davey Cottage is located on the island’s historic East Bluff. Situated high above the Straits of Mackinac, it offers spectacular, panoramic views of Lake Michigan to the west, Lake Huron to the east and the northern tip of Michigan’s lower peninsula to the south. In clear view are the Island’s famous lighthouse, Round Island, Bois Blanc Island and the shipping channel located directly below and in front of the cottage. 

The cottage is surrounded by cedars, towering pines and flower gardens. 

This is a classic Mackinac Island cottage with colors, fabrics and furnishings that recall summer days by the lake. The feeling is comfortable, relaxed, sophisticated, casual living. Although the cottage was built in 1888, it has been updated and well maintained while still preserving the classic architectural details of the period. Five of the six bedrooms face the water. The sixth bedroom is large with high ceilings and looks out over the back of the cottage at a towering green forest.
